Son, the leaders of your country have refused to listen to My warnings. They take My words with a knife and cut off any section that reminds them of how sinful they are. At the rate they are going they think they can remove My word from this country. They do not show any signs of fear or repentance at what they heard from My word or My servants. They think they have the power to do what ever they want.
I have spoken to this country again and again, and it refuses to listen to Me. Time after time I sent My prophets, who told them, “Turn from your wicked ways, and start doing what is right.” Therefore, this is what the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, say: “Because you refuse to listen or answer when I call, I will send upon you all the disasters I have threatened.” Perhaps the people will repent when they hear again all the terrible things I have planned for them. Perhaps they will yet turn from their evil ways and ask for My forgiveness before it is too late. I will punish these leaders for their sins, and I will pour out on all the people all the disasters I promised. I am coming to judge the earth.
Son, tell My children who know My word and who obey it, “I know your faithful work, your loving deeds, and the enduring hope you have because of Me. Because I love you and have chosen you, you can look forward to My coming. I am the one who will rescue you from the terrors of the coming judgment.”
They must speak up as messengers approved by Me; entrusted with My word. Their purpose is to please Me, not people. For I alone examine the motives of their hearts. I have sent My servants to encourage them, and urge them to live their lives in a way that I would consider worthy. Therefore, when they suffer persecution from their countrymen – they will know that I am the One who gives them hope and joy in times of distress and gloom. They will have a reward and crown when they stand before Me when I return!
Lord, I am exhausted for always asking for Your help. My eyes are swollen waiting for You to help me. Those who hate me try to destroy me with lies. They say “Aha! We’ve got him now!” How foolish these people are to think that they can destroy people and not be held accountable. But I will keep praying to You in Your unfailing love, and You will answer my prayer. The humble will see You at work and be glad, and be encouraged.
Son, I hear the cries of the needy. Those who remain faithful will inherit all the blessings I have promised. Those who love Me will live in My shelter. Those who are poor and needy in the world – I will give them My aid. For I am the only help and Savior for this lost and dying world. There is no other!
