Adversity Comes To Those Unaware


Heard the LORD say;

“Adversity comes with many changes for those unaware of My love for them.  I AM judging to bring those closer who need to know ME.

Man has grown rebellious and defiant to My name.  He has plundered and murdered, stolen and cheated, and become apathetic and complacent to My intervention.

Thus I will expose the hearts of the wicked that they will know that I ALONE AM HOLY, THAT I ALONE AM JUDGE and KING over the earth.”

“The LORD shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to my integrity within me.  Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the just; for the righteous God tests the hearts and minds,”   Psalm 7:8-9 NKJV.

“Lightening comes from the east and turmoil from within, for your borders are broken down and your hearts have grown cold to the needy and poor in the land.

You think you are needy, but what you have far surpasses many in other nations.  You have no idea how I have blessed you and succored you and allowed you to grow fat and full.

Yet still you are not satisfied oh sons of men.  You want more money, and more money and more money to fund your abominations.  You call good evil, and evil good.  You cheat and you kill.

Even an element among those who call themselves My own do such things.  

I hate murder.  

I hate the blood on your hands when you hate others and do not repent of the wickedness in your hearts.  

I hate thievery, and arrogance with which you pander to the rich and disdain the poor.

I hate the witchcraft that you dabble in, then come to ME, and pretend that you have not been complacent to the widow and fatherless, to the homeless and poor.

You lift up SELF above all things, and you think that I don’t see?  Have you not heard? Have you not seen?

NO, you have not because you are wretched, poor, blind and naked.  You have need to buy gold and white linen, but you RUN from Me instead of TO ME.  You think that by submitting to me one moment, that you’ve done your duty, then you go about doing things YOUR OWN WAY.

You refuse to REPENT and HUMBLE yourselves.  You think you can cover up your sins and no one will take notice.

I AM God Almighty.  There is nothing that I don’t notice.  Those that choose their own path and who don’t want to depend on me, have made a choice that will cost you.

Behold I come quickly and My reward is with ME.  I AM coming on the wings of the WIND of the Spirit and I will pour out on the FAITHFUL ONES.  

I will convict and burn off every chain that has been put on them.

I will exalt the humble and destroy the pride of the wicked.

I will demolish every mountain of strongholds over My beloveds.

I will show those who are arrogant the deceit of their own hearts, and they will know that I HAVE SEEN, I HAVE HEARD the thoughts of their hearts and minds.

I will do exceedingly, abundantly more than you could think or ask for those whose hearts have longed for ME more than their possessions and ministries, their own way.

The winds are blowing again.  Prepare.  The winds will blow away all the pride of man.

The winds will blow away all the dross of this world.  Your sons and your daughters will come weeping to your door.  Winds of revelation will blow away all the dust and dirt the enemy has tried to subdue them with.

I AM God, and there is no other.  I will not quench the heart of the lowly and destitute.  I will destroy the wickedness of man, and I will roar over my own.  They will know that I love them.

They will know me and walk with me as Enoch walked.  They will walk one way this day, and then they will walk another way the next because of what I do.

Know that I love you and cherish you.  Know that I will accomplish all my heart sets out to do.  I will sustain you and bring you through in miraculous ways.

Trust Me to do all that is needed to bring humility to this generation, for they are rebellious and wicked, but My Mercy is greater, and My strength is greater, and My heart is greater!

Set your heart on pilgrimage.  Set your houses in order.  You are My temple!  Do not allow the enemy any more ground.  Stand and take back the land!”

“Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity?  Curse God and die!”  But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks.  Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?”  In all this Job did not sin with his lips,”   Job 2:9-10 NKJV.

“The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts.  His ways are always prospering; Your judgments are far above, out of his sight;  as for all his enemies, he sneers at them.  He has said in his heart, “I shall not be moved; I shall never be in adversity.”  His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and oppression; under his tongue is trouble and iniquity,”   Psalm 10:4-7 NKJV.

“But in my adversity they rejoiced and gathered together; attackers gathered against me, and I did not know it; they tore at me and did not cease; with ungodly mockers at feasts they gnashed at me with their teeth.  LORD, how long will You look on? Rescue me from their destructions, my precious life from the lions,”   Psalm 35:15-17 NKJV

“Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O LORD, and teach out of Your law, that You may give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit is dug for the wicked.  For the LORD will not cast off His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance.  But judgment will return to righteousness, and all the upright in heart will follow it.  Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?  Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”   Psalms 94:12-16 NKJV

“If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small,”   Proverbs 24:10 NKJV.

“In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: surely God has appointed the one as well as the other, so that man can find out nothing that will come after him,”   Ecclesiastes 7:14 NKJV.

“NKJV And though the LORD gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore, but your eyes shall see your teachers.  Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it, “Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left. You will also defile the covering of your images of silver, and the ornament of your molded images of gold.  You will throw them away as an unclean thing; you will say to them, “Get away!”
Then He will give the rain for your seed with which you sow the ground, and bread of the increase of the earth; It will be fat and plentiful.  In that day your cattle will feed in large pastures.  Likewise the oxen and the young donkeys that work the ground will eat cured fodder, which has been winnowed with the shovel and fan.  There will be on every high mountain and on every high hill rivers and streams of waters, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall,”
   Isaiah 30:20-25.

“Thus you shall say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Behold, what I have built I will break down, and what I have planted I will pluck up, that is, this whole land.  And do you seek great things for yourself?  Do not seek them; for behold, I will bring adversity on all flesh,” says the LORD. “But I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go,”‘”   Jeremiah 45:4-5 NKJV.

“And when they arrived he said to them:  you yourselves are well acquainted with my manner of living among you from the first day that I set foot in [the province of] Asia, and how I continued afterward, serving the LORD with all humility in tears and in the midst of adversity (affliction and trials) which befell me, due to the plots of the Jews [against me];  how I did not shrink from telling you anything that was for your benefit and teaching you in public meetings and from house to house,”   Acts 20:18-20 AMP.
