“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”
From part 1: “This calamity shall come as I am the Lord and this you must know…” (continuing)
“Have I not offered loving kindness and tender mercy first? Have I not provided and protected and yet you stray? Do you say, “The Lord has forsaken the land, the Lord does not see?”
“Then He said to me (Ezekiel), “The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is very, very great, and the land is filled with blood and the city is full of perversion; for they say, ‘The LORD has forsaken the land, and the LORD does not see!’ 10 “But as for Me, My eye will have no pity nor will I spare, but I will bring their conduct upon their heads.” Ezekiel 9:9-10 (NASB)
That which was unacceptable then is unacceptable now. America is a land filled with blood, and cities full of perversion. The perfected love of God in you is the kingdom protection God offers.
“Do I forsake? Am I blind? Learn from past errors. Do not call my name and then declare I have forsaken you. “Behold I will never leave you or forsake you!” You are a nation I have called my own and for a purpose just like Israel.”
The carnality of man has raged since Cain, the birth of impaired judgment since Adam. Some, yes some have embraced the Lord’s grace and fallen face down in surrender and I say in hope! He says and I also say stand…. Stand and be embraced, held, cherished but know to be true to that which you have believed. “My will shall be seen just as Jesus dying had to be seen.” For you have said it, “Thy will be done, Thy kingdom come.”
I believe therefore I write as He continues in my thoughts. “Yet I have ordained that you stand in the same street as those who reject Me, the rain falling on the just and the unjust. WHY? …. What does the rain cause in your souls? What has My Spirit meant to you? What will those see, that cannot see Me, for they have not turned to me so the veil might be removed? You,….yes you are the only hope for them. I will have no pity nor will I spare except they repent and throw themselves upon My mercy. This is their only chance, the only Way. You by My Spirit in you are their only chance.” In being glad for yourself, be compassionate over them. Do not judge.
“Know this. I hide My face from you because of your abominations as a nation, a field becoming worthless from blight. What do you see? Do not declare nor entertain in your own estimations that I forsake you. You, knowing that I do not forsake you, are the only hope for many souls around the world.
As a nation among nations, you have forsaken and gone further and embraced that which is not Me. Repent? I say cry out as a nation within a nation, as a nation within nations. Sigh and groan openly but cast down resentment and anger toward anyone. Intercede like Christ knowing your reward is sure in doing so. Come out from among them in your heart by compassion for they are doomed unless they see and grasp. Can I not say it is too late?” (My note see Ezekiel 6:11-12, 25:6-7 NASB)
Loved ones, shall we cease or shall we continue to pray this way and mean it, knowing what the will of the Lord is. “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…” We must mean it and do it, just as Jesus did. If we do, oh how great our reward will be.
Let us also remember the Lord’s words to Joshua:
“Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.” Verse 9: Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:7, 9 (NASB)
Today, what Jesus commanded us is what He expects us to follow and not turn from it. He spoke what the Father gave Him. The bearer of the message died, that we might receive it and live forever by it.
As it has come to me I share with you now, I know the Lord is saying to us now and has said before, “Have no doubts. Have no fears. Set your face like flint and your tender heart toward Me and all that I AM. WE will get through this victoriously. How can we not if I am in you and you are in Me? I do not forsake Myself do I?”
Before Christ died…. He taught. One effort for our sake made the other achievable.
If I am to follow, I must follow.
“Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness, You who seek the LORD: Look to the rock from which you were hewn, And to the hole of the pit from which you were dug. Isaiah 51:1 (NKJV)
“Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.” Matthew 16:24 (NASB)
My prayer that morning:
Oh Lord, that which incensed You still does. That which You are willing to do for Your name’s sake, for our sake, You still are.
Please Lord, allow those, the remnant who revere You and sigh at the conditions they see, let us be spared according to Your Word. Mark us as You said You would.
We know oh Lord God, You are the Lord, the great I AM. You never forsake your own. Your mercy extends to the merciful, Your kindness to the kind, Your love to the loving, your grace to hearts of grace.
Like Christ, we must choose eternity, Your Way, Truth and Life at whatever cost.
Do as You must (in this world) oh Lord. We kneel at Your side as You do it. We shall not rejoice over Your wrath for we have escaped it only by the blood of Christ and by following in the heart of mercy and grace in Your teachings.
As You do Lord, weigh hearts. For Your word says a sigh and a groan over the abominations they see is enough to deliver. (see Ezekiel 9:4 NASB)
Your Word foretells that which they can only report.
Please … forward this post or others.

We initiate the return of Christ! (The E-book)
