Son, America wants to be known as a righteous nation. Some of its leaders even ask Me to take action on their behalf, pretending they want to be near Me. They think wealth is a strong defense; a high wall of safety to protect them from the things coming. They act so pious, pretending to know Me. They left Me long ago when they traveled far, even into the world of the dead, to seek new gods to love. How foolish to think that these new gods will help them. There is no peace for the wicked!
My church needs to know that I did not give their responsibility to the government. They need to help those in trouble. Share their food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from anyone who needs their help. Then My light will shine out from them. I will continually give back to them and restore their strength. My church will be known as a rebuilder of walls and a restorer of homes, and when they call out to Me I will answer them. Then the world will know I am truly among them.
Son, let Me show you the life that is the best. Love others! Remember what love is: It is patient and kind, not jealous or boastful, not proud or rude. It does not demand its own way, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It is not happy or joyful about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever! Remember that of these three things: faith, hope, and love, the greatest of these is love. So make it your goal to love others like I do, for this is the strength of My church.
