“Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core,” Jude 11:11.
“Thus saith The LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not,” Jeremiah 31:15.
“What could be said about a nation that has gone astray from following after Me?
What could be said about a land that once tasted freedom and peace within its walls?
For you have gone the way of Cain,” says The LORD.
“You have murdered innocent blood. You have ravaged the cities with your violence. For there is unrest and fear of the unknown as children who have grown up, bred in a world of crime and a spiritual wasteland.
But don’t give up, My People, for fear only breeds more fear. Seek Me when the time is ripe.
Find that place tucked away in the solace of your homes; find the time and the place to worship Me there.
For surely you will find Me amidst the noise and confusion of this present hour. Surely when all else has seemingly failed around you, I will come in like a flood and rescue you.
But don’t be surprised, for the darkness descends, even more and more so, with every growing day and week. It has spread its ugly wings upon a nation that had once known my ways.
But murder and deceit has now grown to such an extent that the ceiling cannot know of its expanse.
The drums of war will one day be known within your walls. For there are some who have watched your demise, and they will one day take advantage of this.
They wait in secret planning waiting for that time when it is ripe.
Don’t trust those who make plans in your Capitol, for ever slowly do the wheels of justice turn. And their ways are set for greed and avarice only to accomplish their own aims.
It is now one side against the other — for your war has now become with those who disagree with you even about the most trivial of matters.
And yet are you unaware of the very one who has brought about the division in your land?
And yet that day will come when you will gather to the streets, and then from every street corner you will come.
Your voices will be heard as you march towards your capitol. But what will you find on that day?
For you will not be met with open arms, but rather with smoking guns and the armies with their artillery.
But sing a song still, for even when the drums of war beat, they cannot silence the song that is in your hearts. “
