I have prayed and agonized over the deceptions running rampant in the world, and in our country and in our churches. The churches have adopted a ‘BLESS ME’ gospel, and an aire of pride and indignation. They think they are special in God’s eyes, they think they have been given a magic formula and magic beans so that they won’t endure hardship or tribulation. After all America is not in the Bible and it’s not in prophecy so we must be very, very special. God will save and bless us because we are above all. Or as Jesus put it in Revelation 3: 17 ‘You say, I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pititful, poor, blind and naked. He also say’s to buy salve from Him to put on your eyes so you can see! Jesus knew that the Body of Christ, His Bride, His church, would experience a blindness in the last days, and He is trying to warn us, but few are heeding the warning.
This blindness is not only causing spiritual darkness to those who are blind (refusing to see the truth) it’s hurting those around them. the shepherds are not leading the flock to safety instead they are leading them off a cliff. After all the blind can’t lead the blind.
God is continuously warning, and calling to His people. He is telling us to warn His family, His flock, His church that He is coming soon, He knows that people aren’t listening to His voice. There is too much noise, in their lives. Too much TV, too much entertainment, too much with the world and the worldly stuff. They can’t see anymore, or hear anymore. They’ve long quit listening!
Jesus said unless you become like these little children you won’t see the Kingdom of Heaven. I’ve often wondered what He meant by that. Besides humbling yourself before Him like they do, I always thought there had to be more. And then He gave me the meaning. He said, the children don’t have the predjudices and the pre-conceived notions that adults do. The children still see with their ‘spiritual eyes’ and believe. I know you have heard the stories of children seeing angels, many see them when they’re sick, many just see them. And then the world tells them that’s imaginary and they should not see that. So eventually they stop seeing them. If we could just stop with all the world filled nonsense and really feel and see like a child we would hear the still small voice of the spirit. Jesus said to buy salve from Him to apply to our eyes so that we could see. If the pastors would throw away the pre-paid sermons and open the Book, and preach and teach God’s word, instead of man’s words and interpretations the sheep would see again.
Turn off the noise, and listen and you will hear what God is telling you. He’s telling you to turn to Him, He’s telling you He’s coming soon, He’s telling you to pay attention to the evil that is overtaking the world, He’s telling you to rest in His shadow for protection. He’s telling you as in Revelation: ‘Come out of her my people.’ Leave the world behind and return to God. Buy the salve for your eyes, so that you can see again. This is not nonsense this is the word that God is giving to His watchmen. What you choose to do is up to you, but Paul tells us that if we trade the truth of God for the devils lies we will perish. And Jeremiah say’s ‘What will you do in the end?’ Please ask God to open and remove the scales from your eyes. Before it’s too late. There will be no second chance rapture. There will be no 7 years of second chances after a false belief in the rapture. This is a one time deal. God wants you to take it. Satan wants you to remain blind so he can lead you into the abyss. So you decide. It’s time to decide though who you will serve, Man or God. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
