”SOUNDING 📢THE ⏰ ALARM AND BLOWING THE 🎺 TRUMPET IN ZION”
PEOPLE OF GOD⏰IT’S HIGH TIME TO AWAKE OUT OF SLEEP, SLUMBER AND COMPLACENCY.
FOR IN THIS HOUR WE NEED TO BE HIGH ALERT TO SEE, HEAR AND DISCERN WHAT THE LION OF JUDAH IS SAYING TO HIS BODY, THE CHURCH.
IT IS CRUCIAL THAT WE KEEP OUR ARMOR ON, WATCH, PRAY AND HONE OUR SPIRITUAL WARFARE SKILLS.
WE THE BODY OF CHRIST, THE CHURCH HAVE BEEN LULLED INTO A PLACE OF FATNESS, SLUMBER, COMPLACENCY AND FALSE SECURITY BY PUTTING OUR TRUST IN SILVER, GOLD, FALSE DOCTRINE, PAID POSITONS, TITLES, ENTERTAINMENT AND PRESTIGE.
THE SAME SPIRIT THAT CAUSED THE CHURCH OF LAODICEA TO FEEL THAT BECAUSE THEY WERE RICH AND INCREASED WITH GOODS THEY HAD NEED OF NOTHING ELSE HAS COME UPON THE MODERN DAY CHURCH.
BUT LET’S LOOK AT WHAT GOD SAID TO THE CHURCH OF LAODICEA:
And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the trusty and faithful and true Witness, the Origin and Beginning and Author of God’s creation: [Isa. 55:4; Prov. 8:22.] I know your [record of] works and what you are doing; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth! For you say, I am rich; I have prospered and grown wealthy, and I am in need of nothing; and you do not realize and understand that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. [Hos. 12:8.] Therefore,
I counsel you to purchase from Me gold refined and tested by fire, that you may be [truly] wealthy, and white clothes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nudity from being seen, and salve to put on your eyes, that you may see.
Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and reprove and chasten [I discipline and instruct them].
So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal and repent [changing your mind and attitude]. [Prov. 3:12.]
Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me.
He who overcomes (is victorious), I will grant him to sit beside Me on My throne, as I Myself overcame (was victorious) and sat down beside My Father on His throne.
He who is able to hear, let him listen to and heed what the [Holy] Spirit says to the assemblies (churches).
A TRAGIC RECENT EVENT HAPPENED IN THE LAND OF ZIMBABWE AND I SOUGHT THE LORD TO KNOW AND TO HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING ABOUT THIS TRAGEDY…
FIRST THE LORD GAVE WISDOM IN PUTTING TOGETHER THE CRIME SCENE AND TOOK ME BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF THIS GLORIOUS LIONS LIFE.
CECILS TRAGIC DEMISE DID NOT BEGIN ON THAT HORRIBLE SPACE OF TIME, IT BEGAN WHEN MAN BECAME A FRIEND TO AN ANIMAL THAT NEEDED HIS NATURAL INSTINCTS HEIGHTENED AND SHARPENED AT ALL TIMES TO STAY ALIVE.
THEY GAVE HIM A HABITAT AND CREATED A PLACE OF COMFORT AND TRUST OF MAN BUT FAILED TO PUT UP FENCES. BARRIERS, HEDGES OF PROTECTION ROUND ABOUT THE PRESERVE TO PROTECT THIS RARE KING OF THE JUNGLE.
WE ARE IN A TIME WHEN WE THE BODY OF CHRIST HAVE BEEN LURED OUT OF OUR PROTECTION ZONE INTO THE WORLDS SYSTEMS WITH THE PROMISE OF FOOD (PROVISION) FOR THE SUSTAINING OF THE LIFE OF THE CHURCH…
BUT ALL THE WHILE NOT KNOWING NOR DISCERNING BECAUSE LIKE THIS GLORIOUS RARE LION WE HAVE PUT OUR TRUST IN MAN AND HIS SYSTEMS INSTEAD OF LOOKING TO, DEPENDING ON AND WHOLLY TRUSTING IN OUR GOD “YAHWEH” TO BUILD, SUSTAIN AND PROVIDE FOR “HIS BODY, THE CHURCH”.
I ASKED THE LORD WHY WOULD THIS TRAGEDY IN ZIMBABWE TOUCH SO MANY HEARTS ACROSS THE GLOBE FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL CREATION OF GOD THAT MOST OF THE GLOBAL POPULATION NEVER EVEN HEARD OF BUT YET FELL IN LOVE WITH AND GRIEVED TREMENDOUSLY (AS I HAVE ALSO) OVER HIS KINGLY LOSS.
AND HE SAID “BECAUSE I AM SPEAKING TO WHOLE NATIONS WHERE MY BODY MY CHURCH IS RESIDING TO ARISE, SHAKE OFF THE COMPLACENCY AND APATHY OF SLEEP, SLUMBER AND BLINDNESS. MY CHURCH HAS BEEN LURED AWAY FROM ME THROUGH FALSE LIGHT (FALSE DOCTRINE AND DOCTRINES OF DEVILS), AND HAVE BECOME “AT EASE IN ZION”.
AS IN THE DAY’S OF JEREMIAH THEY HAVE HEWN OUT AND CREATED THEIR OWN CISTERNS (METHODS OF PROVIDING FOR THEMSELVES) THAT HOLD NO LIVING WATER.
AS THE GALATIANS WHO WERE DELIVERED FROM THE RIGORS OF JUDAISM AND HAD BEGAN ANEW IN THE SPIRIT WERE BEING LURED AND BEWITCHED BY THE JUDAISERS TO RETURN TO THE WORKS OF RELIGION SO IS THIS CURRENT TRAGEDY OF BEWITCHMENT BEING PLAYED OUT IN CHURCHES AND MINISTRIES ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE.
THIS IS NOT JUST A LOCAL BEWITCHMENT OF RETURNING TO DEPENDENCY ON FLESHLY EFFORTS TO SAVE OURSELVES IT IS A GLOBAL TRAGEDY.
LIKE THIS GLORIOUS CREATURES INSTINCTS TO LIVE AND SURVIVE HAD BEEN DULLED AND THEN LEFT ALONE IN AN UNPROTECTED ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT PROTECTIVE BOUNDARIES WAS DESTROYED BY HUMAN BEINGS HE HAD COME TO TRUST. ALTHOUGH THESE HUMAN CREATURES WERE NOT HIS CARETAKERS THEY CARRIED THE SCENT OF THE HUMAN BODY THAT HE HAD BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO PROVIDING HIS NEEDS.
“COME OUT OF HER (BABYLON) MY PEOPLE LEST YOU BE PARTAKERS OF HER PLAGUES (OF DEATH)”
http://bible.com/8/jer51.1-64.amp. THUS SAYS the Lord: Behold, I will raise up against Babylon and against those who dwell among those rebelling against Me a destroying wind and spirit; And I will send to Babylon strangers or winnowers who will winnow her and will empty her land; for in the day of calamity they will be against her on every side. Against him who bends let the archer bend his bow, and against him who lifts himself up in his coat of mail. And spare not her young men; devote [to God] and utterly destroy her entire host. Thus they shall fall down slain in the land of the Chaldeans, and wounded in her streets. For Israel has not been widowed and forsaken, nor has Judah, by his God, the Lord of hosts, though their land is full of guilt against the Holy One of Israel. Flee out of the midst of Babylon! Let every man save his life! Let not destruction come upon you through her [punishment for] sin and guilt. For it is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He will render to her a recompense. [Jer. 50:28; II Cor. 6:17; Rev. 18:4.] Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, making all the earth drunken. The nations drank of her wine; therefore the nations have gone mad. [Rev. 14:8; 17:4.] Babylon has suddenly fallen and is shattered (destroyed)! Wail for her [if you care to]! Get balm for her [incurable] pain; if [you do] so she may [possibly] be healed! [Jer. 25:15; Rev. 14:8-10; 16:19; 18:2, 3.] We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed. Forsake her and let us each go to his own country, for her guilt and the judgment against her reach to heaven and are lifted even to the skies. [Gen. 18:20, 21.] The Lord has brought forth and made known the righteousness [of our cause]; come and let us declare in Zion the work of the Lord our God. Make clean and sharp the arrows, take up the shields or coats of armor [and cover your bodies with them]! The Lord has stirred up the spirit of the kings of the Medes [who with the Persians will destroy the Babylonian Empire], for His purpose concerning Babylon is to destroy it; for that is the vengeance of the Lord, the vengeance [upon Babylon for the plundering and destruction] of His temple. Set up a standard or signal [to spread the news] upon the walls of Babylon! Make the watch and blockade strong, set the guards, prepare the ambushes! For the Lord has both purposed and done that which He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon. O [Babylon] you who dwell by many waters, rich in treasures, your end has come, and the line measuring your life is cut. [Rev. 17:1-6.] The Lord of hosts has sworn by Himself, saying, Surely I will fill you with men, as with [a swarm of] locusts [who strip a land clean], and they will lift up a song and shout [of victory] over you. He made the earth by His power; He established the world by His wisdom and stretched out the heavens by His understanding. When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from His treasuries. Every man has become stupid and brutelike, without knowledge [of God]; every goldsmith is put to shame by the images he has made; for his molten idols are a lie, and there is no breath [of life] in them. They are worthless (emptiness, falsity, futility), a work of delusion and worthy of derision; in the time of their inspection and punishment they shall [helplessly] perish. Not like these [gods] is He Who is the Portion of Jacob [the true God on Whom Israel has a claim], for He is the One Who formed all things, and Israel is the tribe of His inheritance–the Lord of hosts is His name. [Jer. 10:12-16.] You [Cyrus of Persia, soon to conquer Babylon] are My battle-ax or maul and weapon of war–for with you I break nations in pieces, with you I destroy kingdoms, With you I break in pieces the horse and his rider, with you I break in pieces the chariot and the charioteer, With you I break in pieces man and woman, with you I break in pieces old man and youth, with you I break in pieces young man and maiden, And I will [completely] repay Babylon and all the inhabitants of Chaldea for all the evil that they have done in Zion–before your very eyes [I will do it], says the Lord. Behold, I am against you, says the Lord, O destroying mountain [which is burning out, you who will be as barren and desolate as an extinct volcano], you who [would] destroy the whole earth. I will stretch out My hand over and against you and roll you down from the [burnt] crags and will make you a burnt-out mountain [of combustive fires]. And [O Babylon] they shall not take your cracked stones for a cornerstone, or any stone for foundations, but you shall be waste and desolate forever, says the Lord. Set up a standard or signal in the land [to spread the news]! Blow the trumpet among the nations! Prepare and dedicate the nations for war against her; call against her the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz. Appoint a marshal against her; cause the horses to come up like [a swarm of] locusts [when their wings are not yet released from their horny cases]. Prepare and dedicate the nations for war against her–the kings of Media, with their governors and commanders (deputies), and every land of their dominion. [I foresee this:] The
