“Also her hired men [are] in the midst of her like fatted bullocks; for they also are turned back, [and] are fled away together: they did not stand, because the day of their calamity was come upon them, [and] the time of their visitation,” Jeremiah 46:21.
“What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you?
Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members?
You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask.
You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures,” James 4:1-3.
“What would say to a people who have strayed far from My plan?
What would you say to the masses of people who doubt My coming?
What would you say to a nation that is in turmoil?
I tell you that I AM coming back and My Bride is not yet ready for My return.
For she has been involved in wars within her own body. She is involved in petty disputes. She is involved in the lies of the enemy.
I tell you that I want to make her ready for my soon return but she would rather listen to stories of propaganda.
For the enemy has infiltrated your ranks. He has come and has knocked down all of your defenses. You have believed his lies. You have listened to his lies in the night hours.
But you can still be resurrected from these things. You can still be freed from the chains that have held you.
But your vision has been clouded. Your heart has been twisted, and now it needs to be reformed.
Outside forces will come to invade your land. They will come when you least expect them. In the cover of darkness they will come from the north.
They will come in stealth and they will creep along your northern borders. And while your surveillance will detect them, great damage will be done.
Many will flee from the cities on that day. They will find their places in the wastelands.
Some will be lost never to be found; and yet, I will protect M y own on that day.
Some have already been warned about these things ahead of time. Each person will prepare in their own way.
Your borders cannot protect you. Your artillery even though it is strong, will not withstand the siege that is coming.
Woe to those who have said that all will be well in the days ahead.
Woe to those who have preached to a land of itching ears!
My people I don’t want you to fear these things that are coming. I don’t want you to fear when calamities come.
For even as in days of old, men and women rose up in my name, and they were able to go out in my Spirit, so again, the men of renown will return once more.
But for now, quit the back-biting. Quit the division about this person or that one. Quit tearing up your brother or sister.
Your political arguments have paved the way for the enemy, and he has dirtied the waters.
Your agendas have mostly been for a man who would lead you to victory in this hour.
But now perhaps you can see that it was mostly for himself, for his own popularity and agenda that he rose to power.
You got what you asked for; you got a king, and he has torn apart his entire kingdom.
But the scepter will be broken, and the kingdom will be split in two.
For the days that are ahead will be ones of great turmoil. And then someone else will emerge. But at your weakest moment the land will be ransacked.
Prepare your hearts for the days ahead.”
