WITCHCRAFT HAS ENTERED the prophetic. During the days of Ezekiel, the nation’s prophets were prophesying lies, following their own heart and spirit. They prophesied peace and salvation to the wicked who had rebelled against God’s laws. They prophesied to the people there would be no coming judgment. They falsely predicted that God’s people were secure even though they lived in sin and idolatry. “Have you not seen a futile vision, and have you not spoken false divination? You say, ‘The LORD says,’ but I have not spoken.” Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Because you have spoken nonsense and envisioned lies, therefore I am indeed against you,” says the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 13:7-8
The Spirit woke me up this morning with Ezekiel 13 on my lips. Speaking to me this verse, ““Because with lies you have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and you have strengthened the hands of the wicked, so that he does not turn from his wicked way to save his life.” Ezekiel 13:22
The lies coming out of the church that God is pleased with you when you do not turn from sin and that you are secure in your rebellion and wickedness, grieve the heart of the righteous. The lie that you can continue to live in sexual immorality, support those same wicked lifestyles, and there’s no need to repent, you are secure; grieve the righteous. Those speaking “Peace!” to the divisive and the rebellious grieve the righteous. Those prophesying there’s no need to repent, God loves you; speak lies and grieve the righteous.
We are a church and a nation under judgment of God. Such a great nation founded upon God’s Word and principles and turns away from Him can only expect to fall. Otherwise God would have to apologize to Israel. We are witnessing the death of a nation and evil is being ushered in and most cannot discern it. The church has lost her light because she refuses to preach the gospel of repentance and reconciliation, but preaches a message of “do what makes you feel good” and “God is pleased with you” and a message of social justice and human equality. The cross has been demonized. Lukewarm and immoral Christians are praised.
Jesus has been turned into a protesting marching hippy. Those who preach, “Repent!” are ostracized and ridiculed. The righteous are grieved by lying prophets and preachers. A spirit of deception is prevalent and the very elect are being deceived. These are perilous times. But there’s hope for the righteous. God is bringing forth a refined remnant who will preach the Word and counsel of God, without fear of the reprisal of man. A remnant that shall come through the fire and be pure as gold. Men and women of courage, who will boldly proclaim the whole counsel of God and have no fear of death. An end time outpouring of the Spirit, the latter rain spoken by Jeremiah the prophet will rain down in holiness and fire to convict and turn the hearts of those back to the Lord and His Word, preparing the Bride for her Bridegroom.
Repent and stand in awe. God will have His way and He knows His own. Return to Him and He will return to you. Stand strong in the Lord you righteous ones! Preach the Word. Contend for the faith that was delivered to the saints- the message of repentance and reconciliation through the precious blood of the Lamb. Shut out the lying spirits and do not forsake the gathering of the brethren who under God’s anointed shepherds preaching the truth of God’s Word. These are watchmen who are watching after your souls. You need the Body now more than ever. Lone wolves will fall away. Keep your eyes on Jesus, guard your heart, and keep your feet firmly grounded on His Word. #runyourrace
