“Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, “Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.”
He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition?”….. “Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.” Then His disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?”…..
“Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch,” (Matthew 15:1-3, 6b,12,14) NKJV
My child, when I walked the hills of Israel teaching and healing the people, men kept trying to get Me to compromise. The religious hierarchy wanted to control Me and fought Me every step of the way.
These were the ones who should have known Who I AM, but their traditions were more important to them than the truth. As you read the incident related in the book of Matthew, some would say, “Why did they not recognize the Anointed One sent by God?”
I tell you truly, this generation cannot point an accusing finger at the Pharisees and Sadducees for they have failed to recognize the ones whom I have anointed for this hour.
Listen with your spiritual ears and you will come to discern that the rancor and vile language spoken over the new president and the people of this nation do not come from Me.
Like the Pharisees of old, they will not listen with open ears, but have judged according to their traditions. They curse that which will bring restoration and revival in the land.
I raise up leaders and I pull them down according to My plans and purposes. Look to Pharaoh and see how his hardened heart served My purposes. When the time came to leave Egypt, the people of Israel were willing to go.
I raised up David to follow Saul as king of Israel. He was not perfect, but he was a man who desired My heart. He was quick to repent being always aware of his humble beginnings.
In this day, it is time My Church learns how to follow Me and leave behind the traditions of religion and big government. Leave Egypt behind! Do not take it with you in your heart.
Look to see how Korah and Dathan ended up when they challenged the LORD’s chosen vessel, Moses. There is NO turning back to the established ways of man’s government and man’s religion. Come out to Me!
The cloud of My presence beckons My people to come to Me in the secret place. In your prayer closet expect to ascend to higher ground so that you will rise above the chaos of yesterday.
I tell you truly, “It is surely a new day.” This is when you must lift up your president and hold his hands up in prayer even as Aaron and Hur ministered to Moses during the day of battle.
Today the battle has been engaged and there is no quarter to be given. Victory comes, but will you be counted among the faithful warriors. Receive My words and respond to My call. I do not come to seek men’s approval. I AM doing My work through My chosen vessels.
I release My blessings upon you now. Shalom.
“And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword,” Exodus 17:11-13, NKJV
