I heard this word today and struggled with writing it. God would stop and then go back to it. I pray America and the church will wake up!
Ezekiel 8:3-18 “And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where [was] the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy. And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel [was] there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
6 And he said to me, “Son of man, do you see what they are doing — the utterly detestable things the house of Israel is doing here, things that will drive me far from my sanctuary? But you will see things that are even more detestable.”
7 Then he brought me to the entrance to the court. I looked, and I saw a hole in the wall.
8 He said to me, “Son of man, now dig into the wall.” So I dug into the wall and saw a doorway there.
9 And he said to me, “Go in and see the wicked and detestable things they are doing here.”
10 So I went in and looked, and I saw portrayed all over the walls all kinds of crawling things and detestable animals and all the idols of the house of Israel.
11 In front of them stood seventy elders (seventy is the Number for God’s punishment for Israel) of the house of Israel, and Jaazaniah (Jaazaniah = “Jehovah hears”) son of Shaphan (an animal that hides itself or burrows) was standing among them. Each had a censer in his hand, and a fragrant cloud of incense was rising.
12 He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel are doing in the darkness, each at the shrine of his own idol? (This would be what each man would put before God or worship) They say, ‘The LORD does not see us; the LORD has forsaken the land.'”
13 Again, he said, “You will see them doing things that are even more detestable.”
14 Then he brought me to the entrance to the north gate of the house of the LORD, and I saw women sitting there, mourning for Tammuz.(fear)
15 He said to me, “Do you see this, son of man? You will see things that are even more detestable than this.”
16 He then brought me into the inner court of the house of the LORD, and there at the entrance to the temple, between the portico and the altar, were about twenty-five men. With their backs toward the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east, they were bowing down to the sun in the east.
17 He said to me, “Have you seen this, son of man? Is it a trivial matter for the house of Judah to do the detestable things they are doing here? Must they also fill the land with violence and continually provoke me to anger? Look at them putting the branch to their nose! ( thumbing their noses at God)
18 Therefore I will deal with them in anger; I will not look on them with pity or spare them. Although they shout in my ears, I will not listen to them.
The lord said “Don’t they see and understand that I see and I know? Do they not understand that whatever they yield themselves too, whatever has gone in the ears and in the eyes, has corrupted their Judgement and for this they have fallen into deep perversion? It is no longer in the places that only were for the most part places that they have deemed houses of perversion. They have now moved into my house and said it is OK. It is just my mistake, or I am sorry for this when all that they want is to save their political career or their position and reputation? For monetary gain they have hidden their perversions. I am uncovering that which has been abominable in my houses and in that which they call the White House. I see and I hear into the holes that they hide in and that they burrow themselves in and do behind close doors.”
I saw a huge piece of machinery a backhoe. It was unearthing garbage and things like that and the Lord showed me and spoke “I am unearthing things that have been hidden from sight and uncovering the things that men do in secret. I am going to have a holy people inside and out. I am removing the dirt that they have hidden under (their flesh ) I am digging with my backhoe and I will find the garbage and the trash that has been hiding too long and now the stink of it is coming up into my nostrils. I can no more tolerate it in those that profess to be leaders of men and leaders of my church. I will begin to show as I did in the book called acts to my apostles. The Ananias’s and Saphira’s that tried to hide their lies from the Holy Ghost and yet they could not hide. I will begin to show my Prophets beyond the hole in the wall and they will see it and know it and I will put watchmen in my house and I will unearth their lies and abominations that they commit behind closed doors. I will begin in the house of the Lord. Then go into those called leaders of nations and I have already begun a small thing in this ,but more will be coming for I will have a Holy people and a Government in this Nation that will fulfill the promises that I made to America’s forefathers. This will be a Nation that does not divide up my land and I will place people in high places with humble hearts and an ear that will hear me. The people I am about to raise up will listen to me and they will have clean hands and a pure heart. I the Lord have spoken.”
Since the Lord has spoken this to me He has been showing me that the spirit that stands in the house of God the spirit of jealousy has been raising up against the Prophets with Hole -In-The -Wall vision. There is an order coming in to the house of God that God is about to start doing and that idol must come down before truth can come in. The Lord is going to shake the foundations and “Build His Church” “and the gates of Hell will not prevail against the Church that has all of the Five fold ministry in it “speaking the truth in love We will grow up into Him.” Not just the Pastor but all of the five fold Ministry. But jealousy has to come down before this can happen.
