“Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the LORD, And their works are in the dark; They say, “Who sees us?” and, “Who knows us?” Isaiah 29:15 NKJV.
“At this also my heart trembles, And leaps from its place. Hear attentively the thunder of His voice, And the rumbling that comes from His mouth. He sends it forth under the whole heaven, His lightning to the ends of the earth. After it a voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, And He does not restrain them when His voice is heard. God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend. For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’. Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength. He seals the hand of every man, That all men may know His work. The beasts go into dens, And remain in their lairs.
From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind, And cold from the scattering winds of the north. By the breath of God ice is given, And the broad waters are frozen. Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; He scatters His bright clouds. And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance, That they may do whatever He commands them on the face of the whole earth. He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for His land, or for mercy,” Job 37:1-13 NKJV.
“Moreover the multitude of your foes shall be like fine dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones like chaff that passes away; Yes, it shall be in an instant, suddenly. You will be punished by the LORD of hosts with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with storm and tempest and the flame of devouring fire. The multitude of all the nations who fight against Ariel, even all who fight against her and her fortress, and distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision,” Isaiah 29:5-7 NKJV.
The Lord spoke:
“I have a controversy with the nations!
I have a controversy with those who think they can hide from ME!
I have a controversy with those who think THEY are in control!
I have a controversy with those who think they know better how to create than I do!
I have a controversy with those who say they are Mine, but are of the synagogue of Satan and press down My beloveds!
I have a controversy with those who put themselves in the place of judgeship when I DIDN’T put them there!
Look at the moon, the stars and the sun. Look at the constellations and nebulas up close.
Can you make these oh sons of men without ME?
Can you control the weather?
Or is it I who sits in the heavens, Whose feet rest upon the earth?
Who are you oh man to take life that is so precious into your own hands?
Why have they distorted the food supplies and disdained My laws?
Is it not that they want to be in charge?
They think I really don’t see what’s going on. But the sentries are at the door, the judgments intended are at hand.
Who will they run to when they CANNOT control everything? I tell you now My children, that they will NOT be able to control everything that they think. I have called the hordes from the east and they will descend on you like a desert sand storm that rises SUDDENLY, and destroys everything in it’s path, burning, destroying, changing the face of the earth with their weapons of destruction. Arm yourselves with ammunition from ON HIGH. Don’t think you can escape all judgment!
Don’t think that your money will save you, for escapes from death come from GOD ALONE ! Jesus alone holds the keys to death and hell. Those who are My own and who HONOR ME with their lives, I WILL HONOR !
Keep safe in the shadow of My presence.
I LOVE MY BRIDE, and I do all things well. Nothing that happens, is beyond My ability to restore. So many think suffering has no purpose. So many think they have RIGHTS. But I BOUGHT AND PAID FOR YOU WITH THE SUFFERING AND DEATH OF MY SON.
It was a very expensive price to pay. You need to understand more fully what was done. It seems many have given in to the Nicolaitan values of “having what I want” when they want.
The Son of Man had no place to lay His head, yet you boast in your arrogance that you should not have to suffer any loss, or any in your body, or any humiliation.
I tell you that those who are proud and arrogant in their boasting will be brought to humiliation. You have a saying, “the bigger they are, the harder they fall.” I say, the bigger you are in your own eyes, the harder you will fall. You diminish the value of others around you as if they are nothing, just because they have not seen the LIGHT of GOD like you have.
Yet you know not your own BLINDNESS. You disdain the poor, the “unaccomplished” those who have had to live with violence as if they are untouchables. You walk in fear of losing your THINGS, fear of getting diseases, fear of man, yet you do not fear ME enough.
Don’t you see that I AM stronger ? Don’t you see there is nothing I cannot change ? You limit MY ABILITY from a worldly viewpoint, then wonder that I don’t answer your prayers.
YOU EXPECT SO LITTLE, AND YOU SOW SO LITTLE, SO YOU GET LITTLE. If you sow LOVE to those you disdain, you would get more love. If you would make dinner for those who are hungry near you, maybe then when you need food later on, when things aren’t so available, you might have someone make dinner for you. Treat others the way you want to be treated !
Open your eyes and ask for opportunities to sow LOVE. To sow whatever you have. I will take care of you. TRUST ME that I will. For those whose trust is weak because of lifetime of rejection, keep speaking trust, even when you don’t feel it. Watch how I will respond to FAITH !
And with each measure of FAITH, I will sow back into you all that you need.
It is not true that you will only get what you sow in like kind. Did I not give you much more than you deserve when you were in your sins?
Did you not deserve death, yet I gave you the opposite of what you sowed?
I AM GENEROUS, so I want that quality in you, that is in ME.
“Also the schemes of the schemer are evil; He devises wicked plans to destroy the poor with lying words, Even when the needy speaks justice. 8 But a generous man devises generous things, and by generosity he shall stand,” Isaiah 32:7-8 NKJV.
With each measure of FAITH that you sow, I will give back to you generously. I AM a good FATHER, and as I see that My children are learning their lessons, and passing tests, I give rewards too, just like a good parent. Only the return from My heart is more abundant than you can imagine, because of My own generosity of heart.
There are seasons when you will go through so much testing it will seem to be overwhelming. But for every attack the enemy makes in coming against My purposes in you, there is greater measure of GLORY that I will pour out! This He does not understand. He cannot understand. But I want you to understand that MY WILL, MY GENEROSITY is much greater than your own heart. I know what it takes to captivate a heart. I will use any means I CHOOSE to do that!
If it takes love from human beings, I will bring that. If it takes freedom to be creative, I will do that, if it takes deliverance, or healing, I will do that, and if it takes ideas for earning what you need, I will do that, but I will ALWAYS do what is best for you. I LOVE YOU AS NO OTHER LOVES YOU. There is nothing I delight in more, than to bless My children who are faithful in their hearts to ME.
I have a greater grace to pour out than most can imagine. And I will do it through vessels of GRACE, not condemnation and arrogant pharisaical posturing! You condemn and you judge, but where is your heart? Is it not like the apostles when they wanted to call down fire from heaven? You know not what spirit you are of!
WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ANOTHER?
There is ONE JUDGE, Christ Jesus.”
“Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge,” James 4:11 KJV.
“Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again,” Matthew 7:1-2 KJV.
“But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ,” Romans 14:10 KJV.
“Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ “If you take away the yoke from your midst, The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, Then your light shall dawn in the darkness, And your darkness shall be as the noonday,” Isaiah 58:9-10 NKJV.
“The voice of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; The lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook,” Psalm 77:18 NKJV.
“At Your rebuke they fled; At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away,” Psalm 104:7 NKJV.
“Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways, And how small a whisper we hear of Him! But the thunder of His power who can understand?” Job 26:14 NKJV.
“Indeed, can anyone understand the spreading of clouds, The thunder from His canopy? Look, He scatters His light upon it, And covers the depths of the sea. For by these He judges the peoples; He gives food in abundance. He covers His hands with lightning, And commands it to strike. His thunder declares it,” Job 36:29-33 NKJV
“Have you an arm like God? Or can you thunder with a voice like His?
Then adorn yourself with majesty and splendor, And array yourself with glory and beauty. Disperse the rage of your wrath; Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him. Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low; Tread down the wicked in their place,” Job 40:9-12 NKJV.
