In my last post “Is this not enough,” I noted that the Spirit of God said to me, (about Janis) “I want her with Me.” Telling me in advance has relieved and resolved those questions that one does ask. “Could I have done more, could I have been better so my prayers for her healing would have been answered? What about the thousands of prayers from the far points of the earth? Did I hinder them? No I did not. God is bigger than that in every way.
That last morning before her passing, after the Lord said “I want her with Me,” He also said, “I cannot trust you with her.” What Lord?
For the next 40 days I struggled with that thought. I would have given my life so she could live. After the funeral and as I said, days later, I was still struggling with this. Then one morning the Spirit said to me, “You have it wrong. You can not do what you are called to do while caring for Janis. You will put her first, as you have. I cannot trust you with her, …there.” I believe He was also saying “I can trust you … with her here.”
And so, by encouragement from Him, I am posting the distressing things I am called to post. All the Father cares about is that we are prepared via His Spirit of love, knowledge, wisdom, counsel, strength, understanding, and reverence. His Spirit leads us into all truth. This life is our chance to be “free” and prepared in heart and soul. We must be.
I asked the Holy Spirit where to read and heard no answer. I opened randomly to 2 Chronicles 36:16 (KJV)
16 But they mocked the messengers of God, (I am not purposely referring to myself here) and despised His words, and misused His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against His people, till there was no remedy.”
The Lord warns us in His righteousness. Passover is a good example. Those who listened were protected. He warns us to uphold His name. His name means salvation not judgment. Jesus’ name means the same basically. The nations shall desire the cup of His salvation or drink from the cup of His wrath. We see this fact many times in the bible.
If we are no longer a Christian nation, our friends will become our enemies for even our God will become our enemy, having warned us in His righteousness for the sake of His name “Salvation.” Only in repentance comes restoration and re-direction toward heaven.
Are we as a nation beyond remedy? Will America forsake abortion, declare itself surrendered to God and Christ, cast down gay “rights”, purge pornography from the internet, condemn murderous religions as not religions at all, demand and elect Godly Christian men to lead, return to God in His inspired interpretations of the Constitution, will working for a living be honored over welfare to those who can work but do not? Will we forsake a UN global mentality that has left the rest of the world in a shambles? Is this an insurmountable list of national abominations? If yes, we must prepare for such a time as this to endure to the end, in a Way only God would ask. In the Way He did.
Political correctness has replaced biblical correctness. We have been morphed into another identity. The trust other nations had in us was based on the righteousness we stood for. Now, in effect, we stand for unrighteousness. We have been warned before about this. Reverend Peter Marshall, chaplain of the Congress, on April 18th 1947, put it this way, “Lord…Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for—because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything. “
Remember Ezekiel 17 and the two eagles. I believe the first is America as founded. The second eagle is America as it has become, the vine looking to the eagle (government) for sustenance. Have we not come to this? It goes on to say in verses 9-10, (NASB)
9 …And neither by great strength nor by many people can it be raised from its roots again. 10 “Behold, though it is planted, will it thrive? Will it not completely wither as soon as the east wind strikes it…?”‘”
Our nation is defined by its majority thought and vote. If a majority have already fallen for the path of unrighteousness, then only a personal commitment to God and a non-judgmental spirit will save each of us. Endure in your love toward the lost by prayer and intercession. By this you guard your own heart.
Enjoy this Christmas honoring Him like never before. Ask, seek and knock, for Him to show you ANYTHING that needs to go in your life. Rejoice, He is faithful to help. His name IS “Salvation” not judgment. Only you can destroy yourself. He, in love, is trying to help us avoid that.
Please … forward this post around the world.
“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”
