Bereft & Desolate


“And protracted wrangling and wearing discussion and perpetual friction among men
who are corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, who imagine that godliness or righteousness is a source of profit [a moneymaking business, a means of livelihood]. From such withdraw,”   1 Timothy 6:5 AMP.

“BUT ALSO [in those days] there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves, who will subtly and stealthily introduce heretical doctrines (destructive heresies), even denying and disowning the Master Who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their immoral ways and lascivious doings; because of them the true Way will be maligned and defamed. 3 And in their covetousness (lust, greed ) they will exploit you with false (cunning) arguments.  From of old the sentence [of condemnation] for them has not been idle; their destruction (eternal misery) has not been asleep,”   2 Peter 2:1-3 AMP.

The still small Voice:

“I AM provoked to jealousy for My bride.  It is time.  It is time.

It is time for the overturning of the tables of the money-changers!

You have seen the cunning ways in which covetousness has grown and prospered in My church.

But I will overturn the ways of those serpents and I will raise up shepherds after Mine own heart who will listen to ME and do MY bidding.

They will not break in and steal and rob from widows.  They will not oppress My prophets.

They will no longer steal from the single mothers and fatherless children, nor ignore the poor and needy.

I will raise up the compassionate and merciful, the humble and those who are filled with the fear of the LORD over the fear of man.

I will not choose the “politically correct” for this job.  I will render to each according to his works.  For the works are the fruit I will test.

I will take the failures in the eyes of men and make them the seers of today!

I will take those who seemed like so much flotsam and jetsam to the sophisticated and rich, and powerful, and use them to humble those who are prideful of their own opinions.

Judgment will be swift to the wicked in this hour.

Remember that I told you that I did NOT come to bring peace but a sword in this hour.  Because the hour has come to judge the covetous and greedy.

There is no rest for those who have swallowed up the righteous, and discarded the weak.

I will humble the prideful and arrogant and you will see the GLORY of the LORD descend in your homes, in your churches, in your gatherings as never before!

It is time for Justice to roll.  It is time for the Righteous to prevail.

I will restore those with hearts that have been broken and damaged.

I will restore the tormented and afflicted.  I will arise with HEALING in My wings and you will go forth as stall fed calves.

You will overcome evil with good, and you will enjoy prosperity in the midst of famine and darkness because I AM with you.

Truth will prevail over the lies!  Love will prevail over fear and darkness!

Sing the song of Moses!  Sing it loud on flute and harp!

Sing My Bride for your Bridegroom is coming and entering into His chamber!

Come and rejoice and make melody you who play on instruments!

Dance and sing and celebrate for JUBILEE is coming to those who are faithful to ME in their hearts.

The decree has gone out.  It is accomplished in the heavens and you will see the fruit of it in the earth!

Again, I say to you, REJOICE and be GLAD for your King is coming to you, and life will never be the same again!”

“They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: “Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!  Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name?  For You alone are holy.  For all nations shall come and worship before You, for Your judgments have been manifested,”   Revelation 15:2-4 NKJV.

“Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber and rejoices like a strong man to run its race.  Its rising is from one end of heaven, and its circuit to the other end; and there is nothing hidden from its heat,”   Psalm 19:5-6 NKJV
