The Lord Gives; Behold, The Lord Also Takes Away
From Letters From God and His Christ
5/14/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord: I have spoken to you many times, O peoples of the earth. Behold, I have sent out My messengers before My face, rising up early and sending them. They have gone out in the name of The Holy One of Israel, your Redeemer, trumpeting My Word by all manner of speaking and devices. For I do not change, says The Lord.
Yet you, O vile generation, have turned to Me the back, hiding your faces, refusing to be healed! For in secret you commit adultery against The Lord, and in open you practice abomination, that you might arouse Me to anger! Indeed you profane My name, and do not cease from polluting it, a most rebellious people who tread upon My Commandments and will not be turned aside from iniquity! Behold, righteousness has fled away and holiness is forgotten, as My own people desecrate My Word for evil gain! - Unruly children who forsake My Law in My own name, multitudes of ill-favored sheep!... Therefore behold the generation of My wrath, a people not desired, a whole generation of evil workers who destroy the garden and leave the land desolate! Their appetites are insatiable, their lusts unabated, a people without conscience, consumed by greed! PEOPLES OF THE EARTH, YOU ARE NO CARETAKERS! Says The Lord.
Behold, the husbandmen have all gone astray, every servant to his own way! The caretakers sleep in the dust, only dry roots remain! Therefore, I shall lay every vineyard waste and render every pleasant field useless! For there are none who cleave to Me, not one who truly knows Me, no one holds a listening ear. For who has longed to know My way, that they might walk in it? Who cries out in sincerity, saying, “Here I am; send me!”? Why do My people rend their clothes while their hearts remain hard and unyielding, growing cold?... My people, rend your hearts and not your garments! Bare yourselves before Me and be broken! For I tell you the truth, you are fallen! From a great height you have been cast down; My spirit is far removed!
And still you stand proud, saying, “Are we not wise in our own eyes and highly exalted? Do we not stand firm upon our own false foundations, for the sake of pride and vanity? Are we not a lavishly-adorned bride, who wears the poor for ornaments and the destitute for clothes?”... Therefore, because you are haughty and your works pretentious, walking always in covetousness as a pair of shoes, I tell you plainly, you are not My bride! For none seek My righteousness as it truly is, none prepare My way before Me! Says The Lord.
Behold, the peoples of the earth have become as a swarm
Of devouring locusts which consume every green thing,
A forest of fallen trees broken and dying, a desolate valley
Where the rains have ceased and the grass is tread down!...
Yet there is no seed left in you; how then shall you arise?...
Peoples of the earth, you have destroyed yourselves!
You have taken your own lives!
Even now you are gasping for your last breath,
Your strength is all but gone from you, as your life flees away...
Behold, death is at the door and is about to come in! Says The Lord.
Behold, by the works of your own hands, O foolish generation, are you held captive - prisoners of sin, workers of great iniquity who embrace every perverse way... Behold the final generation, the last of the kingdoms of men, a most arrogant and wicked generation, a people who exalt themselves above their Creator and cast off My gifts, destroying that which I created for them - AN ABOMINABLE PEOPLE WHO DESTROY LIFE WHILE STILL IN THE WOMB! This is MY Earth, of which you have polluted! These are MY precious lambs, which you have slaughtered! And these are MY people, of whom you have stricken with a continual stroke!
Therefore, because you have made yourselves enemies of God, and speak as though you were God, THUS SAYS THE LORD: I am come to cut down the generation of My wrath, to strike the nations in My hot displeasure! Behold, I shall cause nature to rise up and fight against you, and the earth shall become your enemy, from which there shall be no defense or hiding place! Behold, perplexity and great fear shall overtake you, and you shall be unable to move, astonished at those things coming to pass upon the earth and in the heavens! For My anger is kindled against you, and shall come forth like fire! For The Lord God of Hosts has purposed destruction upon the earth and upon all the cities of men!... Behold, wrath overflows My cup and shall proceed like a flood, and you shall all bow down to the slaughter!
From the beginning My plans were written and made known,
Yet when I called to you, you would not answer!...
And when I spoke to you, you refused to hear,
But continued to do evil in My sight, choosing always
Those things which I hate, casting your lot with the deceiver,
Holding your heads high as you join the ranks of the rebellious!...
Therefore, woe to the peoples of the earth!
For The Almighty is coming down to you in the fierceness of His wrath!
In haste He shall deliver His people, and with great anger
He shall pour out judgment upon the inhabitants of the earth!
Therefore hear the word of The Lord, all you sons of perdition, kings, rulers and leaders among men: LET MY PEOPLE GO! For this is MY field and this is MY harvest, MY Earth and MY people! For I shall command the earth, and My people shall be brought forth; even Sheol shall give up the dead!... Behold, the command shall go forth and the trumpet shall sound, and it shall be done; lo, it shall surely be accomplished, even in the sight of all nations! Says The Lord.
Behold, night has indeed fallen and great wrath is about to ensue, yet even you, O churches of men, have failed to hear, neither have you stopped to listen; nor will you give heed to these words, which I have spoken in all these Letters; nor have you considered the number of these Volumes, which I have set before you.
Therefore, thus says The Lord to the churches of men: The day is indeed coming, of which you are unaware, and the hour for which you are unprepared approaches quickly, for you are no watchmen. For I shall surely leave you desolate, in darkness and bitter weeping; I shall devastate all your lavish houses, until every harlot is made to sit upon the ground... Behold, the light of this world shall be taken! For The Son of Man shall be sent down, He shall return and enter the house, making a careful search for His treasure. Yes, The Shepherd shall go forth into the field and gather them together, until the number is complete. And when He departs, He shall take His sheep with Him and every lamb.
Therefore I tell you plainly, night has indeed fallen
And thick darkness is about to come in,
Wherein the lukewarm shall be spit out and the
Blind shall be left to walk through dry places;
The deaf will be made to dwell in darkness,
And the forgetful hearer shall be confounded,
And the widow shall wail upon her bed...
For I shall surely leave you desolate!...
Says The Lord.
