Son, the purpose in telling you what is about to take place is to encourage you and assure you that what you are about to experience is part of My plan to give you the future I promised; the end of this world as you know it is coming. Therefore, My children must be earnest and disciplined in their prayers. For the time has come for judgment, and it must first begin with My children. If judgment begins with My children then what a terrible fate awaits those who have refused My Good News!
Therefore, My children must stand on My written word. They must keep a copy with them at all times and read it daily. This regular reading will prevent them from becoming proud, and prevent them from turning away from Me. My children must take every word of Mine to heart. My word will show them how to live in this time by giving them wisdom; good judgment, common sense and discernment. Living out My word in their lives will develop a trust in Me so they will do My will, no matter what.
There will come prophets who will deceive My children by saying, “We are not at that time, and we can have peace.” When there is no peace, the people will cry out, “What happened?” They will then understand that these prophets have lied to them. They will become discouraged because of their lies, and not be prepared. How terrible it will be for them; for they will understand that these judgments are not being done without good cause.
So My children, do not turn away from My word. Test what prophets, teachers and pastors are doing with My word. Let My word penetrate deep into your heart, and you will know those who are telling you the truth. For I have raised up prophets from among those whom you would not think are prophets. You must listen to them, for I have put My words in their mouths, and they will tell you everything I command them.
When people ask about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. For they will see what a good life you live because you belong to Me. In this time of judgment cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay. Don’t be surprised at this time as if something strange were happening to you. Be happy when you are insulted for being a Christian, for then the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. Praise God for the privilege of being called by His name! So keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the Me, the One who created you because I will never fail you.
