“Thus says your Lord, The LORD, and your God, Who pleads the cause of His people: Behold, I have taken from your hand the cup of staggering and intoxication, the cup of My wrath you shall drink no more. And I will put it into the hands of your tormentors and oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride or tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over.” Isaiah 51:22-23 AMP.
The LORD spoke: “There is physical intoxication and there is spiritual intoxication.
There is lust intoxication — and there is alcohol intoxication and entertainment intoxication and all kinds of bondage.
But woe to the one who leads My People into bondage and destruction. Woe to the ones who meet behind closed doors and plan the destruction of My People.
For in the day of My Wrath, I AM pouring out another kind of intoxication to the wicked, but on My own who truly love Me, I AM bringing an intoxication with MY LOVE.
I will intoxicate you My Beloveds with the power of My Love and you will be filled to the brim with PASSION for Me, as one is for a LOVER.
You will want to be near Me, to smell Me, to feel Me, to walk with Me, though now you are hesitant and fleeting in Your manner.
I will change the heart that has become partially hard to soft, soft, soft! And those who refuse, will receive of the dregs of wrath will wish to die. Their torment will be evident to all.
But those who drink from the cup I GIVE YOU TO DRINK, though you are wounded, though you are abandoned, and though you are martyred, you will be full of MY LOVE and compassion and full of MY GLORY.
They will behold your face and be in awe of all I do in and through you! Do not drink of the cup of compromise in this hour for it will surely lead you to torment and death.
And know My Beloveds that I have not forgotten your loved ones. I have not forgotten the homeless and destitute, though many of you have forgotten them, I AM a GOD of Justice and I will pour out My Love in the outcasts of your society and they will be changed in a moment.
In a twinkling of an eye, you will see them transformed before your very eyes! Those who have loved ones with serious mental disease will be astonished at the miracles I do!
For I AM not as partial as you oh sons of man! I AM not unbelieving, nor heartless toward the autistic and those considered “ugly” by society.
I AM GOD and there is no other besides Me, and I will demonstrate My Love in a most proficient and stately way, and I will do it in startling and undisciplined ways.
I will use those thought least likely by The Church. I will use those The Church has disdained and forgotten and thrown overboard like so much flotsam or jetsam.
I will take those who have had to be taught by Me because The Church chose to teach apostasy and their own opinion over My Word.
I will turn them into a MIGHTY ARMY that will shake the earth!
The youth who you so want to entertain instead of teach will be turned into RADICAL TRANSFORMERS FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD! T
hose who you look at and mock and fear will be touched in a moment and transformed. YES, it is the APOSTOLIC power that you have anticipated. But it will come at a cost beloveds.
Don’t keep thinking that life in this United States will be the same. Don’t think that men will stop trying to destroy The Kingdom of God.
They will think they are doing me a favor as they cut off your heads and administer drugs to kill you.
They will think they are making a new world where all will be peaceful and their way… just like at The Tower of Babel.
But just as I caused CONFUSION to the plans of those at Babel, will I also confuse and destroy modern Babylon.
I tell you they WILL TREMBLE AT MY NAME and THEY WILL KNOW THAT I ALONE AM GOD and THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSE for rejecting the Son of Man!
But to YOU who call on MY NAME, I will arise with healing in My Wings.
I will destroy the plans of the wicked and I will restore the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers and I WILL honor those who honor ME.
I will, I will, I will utterly ASTONISH the kingdoms of men with you. PREPARE YOUR HEARTS BELOVEDS. PREPARE, for low your KING comes to you and nothing will ever be the same !”
