Lord, when you tell me what is coming and I tell others, it seems that no one listens. They think, “We have heard this before and nothing happened, so why should we listen to you old man?”
Lord, I ask for Your blessing in My life and the lives of my children. Be with us in all that we do, and keep us from falling away from You through the trouble and suffering that is coming. Have mercy on us, O God, for we look to You for protection and provision. You will fulfill Your purpose for me. You are my strength, my fortress, and You will stand with me. Therefore, every morning I will read about Your unfailing love, and know that You will be my refuge, a place of safety in the coming days. There truly is a reward for those who live for You.
Son, live your life filled with My love, and follow My example. For I love people and have offered Myself as their sacrifice, so that they might know My eternal life and receive all My riches. Those who accept My sacrifice were once full of darkness, but now they have My light, and they must live as children of light! They must not take part in the worthless deeds of evil darkness; instead, they must expose them. So be careful how you live and don’t be foolish, but wise. Take advantage of every opportunity and understand what I want you to do. Be thankful for everything.
Do what I ask of you with all your heart. Put on all of My armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. You must understand that you are not fighting against flesh-and-blood, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. So when these battles come, stand your ground with the truth and My righteousness. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all My children everywhere.
Son, I know that you do not want to tell people what I have to say, but you must tell them. Ask your nation’s wicked leaders, “Do you know the meaning of the word JUSTICE? Do you judge the people fairly?” Tell them, “From birth you have lied and gone your own way. Listen to the lies and the filth that comes from your mouths! Your demands and laws cut down people like swords.”
Because of the sinful things they continue to say and do – they will be captured by their pride, their curses, and their lies. I have faithfully told them what I will do if they continue this path, but they have refused to listen. Each time I told them, “Turn from the evil road you are traveling and from the evil things you are doing.” they would not listen to Me, and have made made Me furious so that they are bringing on themselves all the disasters coming.
Son, you must remember that they are refusing to listen to Me, not you. But you must continue to tell them, “This is what I, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, say: ‘Drink from this cup of My anger. Get drunk and vomit; for you will rise no more!’ If they refuse to accept the cup, tell them, “I the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, say: ‘You have no choice but to drink from it.'” If they listen and turn from their evil ways, then I will change My mind about the disaster I am ready to pour out on them because of their sins. But they must begin to obey Me. Then, and only then, will I change My mind about this disaster coming against them. What a great day it will be for your nation if they turned from their sins and started to worship Me; if they would beg Me for the mercy I want to show them. Then I would change My mind about the terrible disaster I had pronounced against them. So, tell the people that they are about to do themselves great harm by not listening to My message through My prophets.
