“This enemy of Ours is attempting to lull a great body of My People to sleep.
“Sleep,” he says, “through the crisis in your life.” “Sleep,” he says, “to the cries of the lost world.” “Sleep, you don’t need to be aware of the times or season that you are in,” says the liar.
Sleep, so that your spiritual senses become dull. Sleep, in order that you might receive more of his lies. Sleep, so that you are deaf to My Voice.
He is using the cares of this world, the lust and longings for other things, (wants, entertainment, business) and the deceitfulness of riches, those cravings and desires for more and more, all those things that beckon for your attention. He is applying a smoke screen.
Awake from your spiritual slumber, for it is the sleep of death, sent to kill your real life in Me.
Where are the Watchmen on the walls — those who are Seers, whom I have anointed to see ahead, to the times and the season?
Listen as they cry out to you! For the spirit of deceitfulness has caused your walk to become lethargic, as one who feels in the darkness.
Your great light that once burned brightly has become small. Wake up to righteousness! You don’t even know how far you have fallen.
You have judged yourself by others, who have been dulled by this life. Those who have become lovers of this world — those who are taking pleasure in the wickedness around them.
Turn your gaze back on Me, your Bright and Morning Star.
You once ran with the messengers that carried My Word. Now you have put down your torch and run with the jackals of this temporary world. Return to Me!
You must stay planted by the river of My Word, in order to have a ceaseless supply of fresh water.
So that no matter what the outer conditions, you will continue to produce. Each time you dwell in darkness and with sin, you are weakened to your defense against it.
Your delight and desires for Me will shift. You cannot love two lovers. You will either hate the one or love the other.
Remember how you loved Me, I was your delight and your desire. Come back to Me with your whole heart and I will heal you of your backsliding heart.
I have been speaking gently, while the world screams at you for your attention and affection.
Now I will shout as one who is in travail. Awake, arise, and stir yourself up to Me!
Do not grow weary in your waiting.
Do not grow weary in your well-doing.
I will come for you. I AM coming for My Bride, so wake up to My Word. Stay alert to My Presence and know the times that we are in.”
“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us spreads and makes evident everywhere the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Him. For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which ascends] to God, [discernible both] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; to the latter one an aroma from death to death [a fatal, offensive odor], but to the other an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. And who is adequate and sufficiently qualified for these things?” 2 Corinthians 2:14-16
“For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world by [personal] knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, their last condition has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them not to have [personally] known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to have turned back from the holy commandment [verbally] handed on to them. The thing spoken of in the true proverb has happened to them, “The dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “A sow is washed only to wallow [again] in the mire.”” 2 Peter 2:20-22
“For [it is impossible to restore to repentance] those who have once been enlightened [spiritually] and who have tasted and consciously experienced the heavenly gift and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted and consciously experienced the good word of God and the powers of the age (world) to come, and then have fallen away—it is impossible to bring them back again to repentance, since they again nail the Son of God on the cross [for as far as they are concerned, they are treating the death of Christ as if they were not saved by it], and are holding Him up again to public disgrace.” Hebrews 6:4-6
