To him who has clean hands and a pure heart
~ will I reward!
The Lord says, If you will obey Me, you will be filled, you will be full. If you turn away and refuse to listen, you will be devoured by the sword of your enemies. I, the Lord, have spoken! Yea even, Zion will be restored by justice; those who repent will be revived by My righteousness says the Lord. Walk in the light of the Lord!
My people there is no end to your treasures. You treasure this and you treasure that, those things that are of the world and of no value, they are idols reserved for the everlasting fire. In that Day says the Lord, all will be taken away in a moment, in the twinkling of My eye. Many rich in the land, rulers, leaders; those valuing the greatest of worldly treasures and yet these are temporal. There is no end to the treasures nor the greed, for even My people gather treasures of gold and silver, believing I do not see their hidden desires of lust and greed. The land is full of idols; the people worship things they have made with their own hands, for naught.
For in that Days to come, I, the Lord will punish the proud and mighty and bring down everything that is exalted above the Lord. The prideful will be humbled, and arrogance will be brought down. Only will, I, the Lord will be exalted on that Day.
On that Day, your idols will completely disappear. On that Day everyone will abandon idols of silver and their idols of gold, which they made for themselves to worship. You have stumbled on what you consider worthy of your thoughts, time and efforts, none of it is worthy; it is wood, hay and stubble. These things will be burned on that Day.
Up to that Day, people will oppress each other, neighbor against neighbor, brother against brother, sister against sister. Young people will insult their elders, and despise those who have loved them. Ungodly people will sneer at the honorable. Covetousness, greed, pride, lust and will commit wickedness openly, in the land in that Day. You will stumble in broad daylight, and your false prophets will fall with you in the night. Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down low when they are punished, says the Lord. The look of their face witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom: they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have brought evil upon themselves.
My people will stumble, and the unbelievers will fall, because they speak out against the Lord and refuse to obey him. The disobedient provoke Him to His face. The look on their faces gives them away says the Lord, yet I look upon the heart; where I dig, I plant, I prune, and water. The wicked and unbelieving display their sin like the people of Sodom, displaying it openly, and do not even try to hide it. They are doomed for eternity! They have brought destruction upon their ownselves. I made a way, I paid their price for life eternal and they chose their own way. The godly, it will be well for them. They will enjoy the rich rewards they have earned for eternity!
On that day of judgment the Lord will strip away everything worldly that makes beautiful, all that is useless and worth nothing of eternal value. All coverings will be removed on that Day, naked before Me, says the Lord you will stand, and on that Day what will be said to you? What sorrow awaits those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.
Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand. You earthly riches are worthy of nothing at Heavens Gates, Your beauty cannot pave the way into Eternity. There is One way, not the way of the thief and robber, it is ONLY through the Blood of the Lamb, shed by My Son whom I sent for redemption of all mankind, the way of the Master, One Way.
I, the Lord, will reward according to My righteousness, according to the cleanness of your hands. To him who has clean hands, and a pure heart who has not lifted up his soul to pride, nor sworn deceitfully. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.
Cleanse your hands, you sinners. And purify your hearts, you double minded. Those who have not come to Zion, I call you once again, come and taste the good of the land. Amen and Amen
