“For who among them has stood in the council of The LORD to see and to hear his word,or who has paid attention to his word and listened? 19 Behold, the storm of The LORD! Wrath has gone forth,a whirling tempest; it will burst upon the head of the wicked. 20 The anger of The LORD will not turn back until he has executed and accomplished the intents of his heart. In the latter days you will understand it clearly. 21 “I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied. 22 But if they had stood in my council, then they would have proclaimed my words to my people, and they would have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their deeds,” Jeremiah 23:18-22.
“What man has stood in my counsel,” says The LORD.
“For I AM sharpening your weapons of war,” says The LORD.
‘Who has stood before My Throne and has been known by Me?
Who of you knows Me and has allowed My Word to soak down into your sinews?
Truly, many claim to know Me and yet they have not stood in My Presence.
Many of you claim to be apostles and prophets. You claim a title before man. You parade your great feats of miraculous deeds, and yet you only want the glory of man.
But those who truly know Me, have sat before my throne often. They have heard the cries of the people. They have visited the outcasts, and they have given themselves unto the needy.
Have I not said that you would know them by their fruits?
And yet you think that the fruit is healthy and ripe, and yet it is rotten to the core. Oh you foolish people!
Gain some much needed discernment, for in the days ahead you will need it more than ever.
And yet I will not leave you comfortless. For the one doomed to perdition is among you; and yet you have been betrayed by your lack of discernment.
For I AM not to make this land great again. You take your bibles from your shelves and you split hairs over the most trivial of matters, and yet those things that you should be seeing are right in front of you!”
