Honestly, I wasn’t waiting for this time…. but just playing Freecell and I look at the clock and it says 11:11 pm…Pacific Coast time.
….And I hear the words…”Tremors in the Halls of Justice”
“So what do You want to say about that Father?” I asked Him.
“I AM overturning the decisions made by your Supreme Court. I will not continue to be complacent, though many are complacent in the land.
I will not be complacent. My N ature is to be patient with the sons of men. My Nature is also however to see JUSTICE met.
I AM a God of Justice.”
Deuteronomy 27:19 NKJV “Cursed is the one who perverts the justice due the stranger, the fatherless, and widow.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!'”
Habakkuk 1:4 NASU “Therefore the law is ignored and justice is never upheld. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore justice comes out perverted.”
Job 34:17-20 NKJV “Should one who hates justice govern? Will you condemn Him who is most just? Is it fitting to say to a king, ‘You are worthless,’ And to nobles, ‘You are wicked’? Yet He is not partial to princes, Nor does He regard the rich more than the poor; For they are all the work of His hands. In a moment they die, in the middle of the night; The people are shaken and pass away.”
Deuteronomy 32:4-6 NKJV
Amos 5:6-7 NASU
Amos 5:12-15 NASU
Amos 5:24 NASU “But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”
“I have begun to establish My Justice in this land, that My Will would be accomplished.
You will no longer punish the innocent and pervert The Laws of The LORD without consequence to your actions. For some time I have been writing in My Handiwork, but the wicked fail to see, for the carnal man does not understand the things of The Spirit.
But in the days ahead, what I do will be obvious even to the wicked. And the differences between those who belong to Me and those who belong to the enemy will be even more disparate.
Lawlessness will abound. It has begun in the world and has invaded My Pastures. But I will not allow my sheep to continue to be devoured by wolves running rampant. For though they run rampant… I will protect My Own. And the changes coming will sweep away much of the chaff in the house of The LORD.
For I will met out JUSTICE for those who are wanting to be free. I will break the chains that bind and constrict you from being all you want to be and doing all I have called you to do.
I have a plumbline in My hand, and all that is coming is to divide the just from the unjust, the righteous from the carnal. Take heed that you would be swift to hear and slow to speak, especially if the words you speak are slander or gossip against your brother!
I will not let such devouring continue in My Pastures. All jealousy and envy will be dealt with. I will be quick to correct. There is only ONE JUDGE in heaven and on earth.”
Isaiah 28:17 AMP “I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plummet; and hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and waters will overwhelm the hiding place (the shelter).”
“Suddenly I will come to My house… and I will invade the halls of justice in My Church, and in the nations.
I will be with you in trials and in tempest. Know that I AM with you. I will never, never, never forsake you.
I AM in love with you My Bride, and I will only be doing what MUST be done for change to occur, and to give those who are wicked a chance to make a firm decision.
Many are blundering through life, apathetic and complacent to the needs everywhere around them. But EVERYTHING THAT IS HIDDEN WILL BE REVEALED.
So come to Me that I may sweep out the closets of your hearts and take out all that is not of ME.“
Isaiah 42:13-17 AMP “The LORD will go forth like a mighty man, He will rouse up His zealous indignation and vengeance like a warrior; He will cry, yes, He will shout aloud, He will do mightily against His enemies. [ Thus says The LORD ] I have for a long time held My peace, I have been still and restrained Myself. Now I will cry out like a woman in travail, I will gasp and pant together. I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their herbage; I will turn the rivers into islands, and I will dry up the pools.
And I will bring the blind by a way that they know not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known. I will make darkness into light before them and make uneven places into a plain. These things I have determined to do [for them]; and I will not leave them forsaken. They shall be turned back, they shall be utterly put to shame, who trust in graven images, who say to molten images, You are our gods.”
“For I AM coming like a MIGHTY RUSHING WIND AGAIN. Know that the window of opportunity is short and that I will judge with true justice the kings of the earth.”
Psalm 37:6-7 NKJV “He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Rest in The LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked schemes.”
“All those who think they are in control are in for a surprise. For I AM and there is no one like ME. I AM the King of kings, and LORD of lords.
I AM jealous for you and I will not abate the judgments till people will cry out for mercy to ME. Does stone or wood answer? Do the trees answer? Where will they find an answer except in ME?
With the justice, will come a new era of discernment in My Church and people. With My MIGHTY wind will come a new era of RIGHTEOUSNESS and TRUTH. Come closer my darlings. Come away with me.”
Psalm 25:9-10 NKJV “The humble He guides in justice, and the humble He teaches His way. All the paths of The LORD are mercy and truth, to such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.”
“I AM the bright Morningstar. I AM The LORD of Hosts. Who will oppose Me when I raise Myself up? Who dares to fight against Me? The LORD sits in the heavens and laughs at the derision of His enemies.
When you see the signs of the times, do not get into fear. For know that I have reserved the best wine for last.
Know that I will not forsake My Bride in her hour of testing. Know that I will do all to help you to walk through all that you need to endure until the end.
And to all who overcome, I will give the crown of life. To all who overcome, “I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”‘
To all who overcome, they “shall not be hurt by the second death.”‘ “To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”‘
To him who overcomes, “and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations — “ and “ He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. “
“He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.“
“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
My love endures FOREVER. Remember this in the days ahead. I will never leave you nor forsake you. You are my precious treasure.
You are like a pearl that a man goes searching for… and again and again he dives into deep water… looking and looking for that one shell with the beautiful pearl. And once he finds it, he cares for it and and watches over it, and never lets it out of his site.
Even when the darkness increases, KNOW that whatever comes… I AM at your left side, I AM at your right side. I AM your Rear Guard! I AM in front of you. I AM beneath and above you.
I surround you with My glory. I AM not ever farther than inside of you. Look to ME. Appropriate the power I have given you. Appropriate the tools I have given you.”
2 Corinthians 10:4 AMP “For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [ weapons of flesh and blood ], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds.”
“Line upon line, jot and tittle… I have not left aside any part of My Word.
The Kingdom of God suffers violence, and the VIOLENT takes it by force!
Worship Me in the beauty of HOLINESS. I AM holy, therefore be holy as I AM holy! The only way you can be, is to be in MY presence. Remember also the wife of Lot. When she turned and looked back, she turned to salt.
Look to ME My beloved. Do not look to things or other people to save you.
Do not think about the things of this world when you have treasures stored up in heaven according to your righteous acts. Look not to the log in your brothers eye.
Remove the one in your own by coming to ME and being with ME. I will do ALL I have said I will do. TRUST in ME alone. Listen for the still small voice. My voice is loving and kind. I AM not a harsh taskmaster.
I will warn you when you need it. But it will never abuse or torment you. Cling to ME. I AM all you need.”

Why have we afflicted ourselves, and You take no knowledge [ of it ] ? Behold [ O Israel ], on the day of your fast [when you should be grieving for your sins], you find profit in your business, and [instead of stopping all work, as the law implies you and your workmen should do] you extort from your hired servants a full amount of labor. [Leviticus 16:29.] [ The facts are that ] you fast only for strife and debate and to smite with the fist of wickedness. Fasting as you do today will not cause your voice to be heard on high.”

For they have devoured Jacob, yes, devoured him and consumed him and made his habitation a desolate waste.”
Jeremiah 22:15-16 AMP “Do you think that being a king [merely] means [self-indulgent] vying [with Solomon] and striving to excel in cedar [palaces]? Did not your father [Josiah], as he ate and drank, do justice and righteousness [being upright and in right standing with God]? Then it was well with him. He judged and defended the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well. Was not [all] this [what it means] to know and recognize Me? says The LORD.”

Thus says The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Once more they shall use these words in the land of Judah and in her cities when I release them from exile: The LORD bless you, O habitation of justice and righteousness, O holy mountain!
And [the people of] Judah and all its cities shall dwell there together–[nomad] farmers and those who wander about with their flocks. For I will [fully] satisfy the weary soul, and I will replenish every languishing and sorrowful person.”

Calamity will not come upon us.”

I said, ‘Surely you will fear Me, you will receive instruction ’— so that her dwelling would not be cut off, despite everything for which I punished her. But they rose early and corrupted all their deeds.
“Therefore wait for Me,” says the Lord, “Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations to My assembly of kingdoms, to pour on them My indignation, all My fierce anger; all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy.

Malachi 2:17 NASU “You have wearied The LORD with your words. Yet you say, “How have we wearied Him?” In that you say, ” Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of The LORD, and He delights in them,” or, ” Where is the God of justice?”

And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
Acts 8:33 “In His humiliation His justice was taken away, and who will declare His generation?
