I will call them My people,
who are not My people!
Had it not been for a Hill called Mount Calvary; had it not been for the Old Rugged Cross; there would be no redemption for you.
This was done for a world of lost sinners to choose, yes, to choose life and life more abundantly! Even this day, I call to a world of lost sinners, “Will you Come?”
Yes, “I paid the price I did not owe, the price you could not pay.” My grace for thee is free. You are forgiven.
The Prophet said, “I will call them ‘My people’ who were not my people; and I will call her ‘My loved one’ who is not my loved one,” and the Lord says, “Come!”
Father says there is one way, you will come by way of the cross, upon that hill called Mount Calvary. The road I have set before you is narrow and it leads to life. The hill is steep, the climb is great, but My grace is sufficient for the way of the cross, for the one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not set his mind on what is false, and who has not sworn deceitfully. These will receive the Lord’s blessing and have a right relationship with Me, their God and Savior.
There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and there will be anguish on the earth, among nations bewildered by the roaring sea and waves. People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
Everyone will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and great glory. When all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near, even at your door! Look at the fig tree and all the trees. As they put out leaves you can see for yourselves and recognize that summer is already near. When you see these things happening, recognize that the Kingdom of God is near.
This generation will not pass from the scene until all these things have taken place. Behold, I come quickly!
Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture! declares the LORD. You have scattered My flock and driven them away, and have not attended to them; behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your deeds, declares the LORD.
I Myself will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and bring them back to their pasture, and they will be fruitful and multiply. I will also raise up shepherds over them and they will tend to them with loving kindness and mercy; and they will not be afraid any longer, nor be terrified, nor will any be missing, declares the LORD.… The LORD, Our Righteousness has spoken this!
The prodigals, those from the highways and by-ways, they are coming, the sick, the poor and the lame, even the fearful and unbelieving, they are coming!
I, the Lord thy God, have prepared a remnant that is ready to receive these, the call has gone forth throughout the earth to call My people home.
Come now and let us reason together, though your sins be as scarlet, I will make you as clean as snow, creating in you a clean heart, renewing within you a right Spirit says the Lord, giving you My righteousness, for your unrighteousness. The feast has been prepared. The bulls and fattened cattle have been killed, and everything is ready. Come, the banquet is ready!
Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you.
If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also. the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but just as it is written, ‘Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.’
Amen and Amen
