I heard The LORD talking about how he was having to “Move Things Around” like someone would move around furniture and clean up the mess, in the house.
Then I heard him say something about He did not force men but he waits and gives them a choice.
They must choose Him, else He will step back and just watch.
Now hear what He said: “I AM still in the process of moving things around. You must know that, because things are in such a mess, the job is harder and there are many things to be set right.
Because men leave Me out of their lives and choose to walk in the vanity of their minds, so to help them, I must start at the point of creation of life. It is as if there is no life at all, so there must be total awakening!
I AM one who does not force men, but I have given them a choice. They must personally choose Me or else I will not help them.
I must bring them by “Conviction” — but men must be moved by events and circumstances. So, I AM putting men in deliberate extremity so as to arrest them.
Even then [when they are arrested and seeing] they still can choose to reject Me, again.
This is then the method to bring them, but with that they still will not come!
I will not receive without repenting, for I must see their hearts and know they are being genuine and truthful with Me.
I strive with them long and hard, yet they harden their hearts against Me.
The day is coming when I will no longer strive with men, but I will accept them as those who do reject Me.
But I wish they would repent. But because they will not, I will be forced to judge them.
At this time of judgment, it is very hard, they will be in great sorrow.
As long as you who believe are present with them, it is long and hard for you, for you will be touched by their judgment. The Judgment of Sinners will be hard for all watching.
So, you see, I AM the one who is forced and I do not force them. I would rather all would come to repentance and believe, but they did refuse.”
“And The LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” Genesis 6:3.
“The LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
But the day of The LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” 2 Peter 3:9-12.

I have posted this word in Obedience to my Lord and have written His words. Many say that God is forcing men, but he has said to me: “I will not force them, but yet strive with them hoping they would be saved!”
I understand Him, and felt his heart, when He says, “The strive with Me.”
I hear him Cry for their souls, and is hurt that they absolutely refuse to come to Him and be Saved.
Yet one of the most remarkable things The LORD is doing is striving with sinners with great longsuffering hoping yet they will be saved.
This is why we wait… We wait on the longsuffering of The LORD. Oh, how much He must care for them yet!
