This, from a few years ago. It still rings my bell, and probably yours too, if we’re all honest!
This is even more true and urgent today, in 2023, than it was when first posted. I’ve ‘improved’ it a little too!
The LORD has always been showing me one or two issues The Church has with Him — and vice versa!
The world is now even more desperate to hear from God. The Church is even more desperate to hear from Him. There’s just two problems.
- First, the world will not recognise The LORD’s Voice in amongst the babble going on around it.
- Second, The Church is still scared of, and still does not trust, the Prophetic.
Also, ironically, The Church, too, will not recognise The LORD’s voice in amongst the babble going on around it.
The Church is terrified of upsetting anyone who might disagree with them. They have no unified nor cogent voice, and the world no longer trusts anything The Church says.
There are so many dissenting voices in The Church, so how can The Church present a clear, logical, and convincing argument?
It is my firm belief, based on these revelations, that at least 75% of the present Church will either reject outright any semblance of Revival, or they will further damage any remaining credibility they have by ‘controlling’ or condemning it!
This is heavy, serious stuff — and The Church is trying its hardest to ignore it, smother it, hide it — anything but acknowledge it!
Hear what I hear The LORD saying to His Church today — “When — not if — but WHEN My People, who are called by My Name, repent and turn from their wicked ways, THEN I will hear from heaven, and I will speak to her very clearly, and she will be able to call down, and receive My Holy Spirit and a revival that will heal their land!
Further, My Church needs to acknowledge and receive My servants the prophets once again.
The Church has The Truth.
The world is desperate for The Truth.
Yet The Church is afraid to speak The Truth lest they be accused of something — anything, but especially offending!
The Day of Decision has come!” says The LORD.
“You may acknowledge Me, or you may avoid Me (deny Me)!
My Spirit will come to you, but He will only tarry where He is welcomed, otherwise He will ‘shake the dust from His feet’ and leave!
Choose you this day whom you will serve!”
To which I reply, “As for me and my house, we will serve The LORD.
How about you?
Will you pay the price and make The Holy Spirit welcome — or will you deny Him because of fear or unbelief?
