~ I AM Marking the Mourning and Separating those whose Hearts will Believe ME for Righteousness to Reign Again! ~
~ God Is Marking His Intercessors ~
“And the Lord said to him, “Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it” Ezekiel 9:4.
God said “I AM marking those who have a heart like mine.
I AM separating them out to cry out to me for all of the atrocities that are happening in the earth right now.
I AM separating those even within my sanctuary who have a heart like mine and who want to see this evil end.
I AM sending the Angel with the ink horn…
I AM calling for those who will still have a vision to see righteousness reign in this earth.”
~ God Is Calling Those Whose Hearts Are Like His ~
God’s main complaint against those who were elders in the temple was that they were saying something and what they were saying was directly contrary to His word and nature….
In verse 9 of chapter 9 of Ezekiel He said this, “…..The land is full of blood, and the city full of injustice. For they say, ‘The Lord has forsaken the land, and the Lord does not see.”
You see what He was saying in these passages was that He needed to remove those that were causing the land to be filled with injustices by their lack of His compassion, when they were seeing the injustices that were happening right before their eyes by saying that “the Lord had forsaken them.”
What He was looking for were those that would have His heart and cry out for their cities and their nation! Who would believe Him for change!
“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?” Luke 18: 7-9 (NKJV).
~ I saw an angel marking those who had a heart for their land and that would decree that God is able in their cities! ~
Who will cry and sigh for the abominations that are happening in the earth…. Those that would believe that He wants them to live in abundant life again! He is marking those who will cry out once again and travail for the persecuted, the sick, the children that are being beheaded, the widows, the orphans, the homeless, and the hurting, those sold into human trafficking, those aborted babies, the lost , and the lonely, and the drug addicted…
“Oh, that my head were waters and my eyes a reservoir of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!” Jeremiah 9:1 & 17-21 (AMP).
Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider and call for the mourning women to come; send for the skillful women to come. Let them make haste and raise a wailing over us and for us, that our eyes may run down with tears and our eyelids gush with water.
For a sound of wailing is heard [coming] out of Zion: How we are plundered and ruined! We are greatly confounded and utterly put to shame, because we have forsaken the land, because they have cast down our dwellings [our dwellings that have cast us out].
Yet hear the word of the Lord, O you women, and let your ears receive the word of His mouth; teach your daughters a lament, and each one [teach] her neighbor a dirge. For death has come up into our windows; it has entered into our palaces, cutting off the children from outdoors and the young men from the streets.
You see God is calling the mourning men and wimen to cry out to Him to cause men to weep for the injustice that is happening to His people and for the lost.. We need to pray for men and women and even children’s hearts to begin to see the world through God’s eyes and for their hearts to be softened to the place where they will weep for others..
Lord give us a Spirit of intercession and a heart of compassion like you had when you wept over Jerusalem! Yes, give us your heart!
