Ears Tuned to Truth? Ears Tuned to Lies?

Saturday, July 29th, 2017

Come let us reason together: Luke 12:51–53: “Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two, and two against three. They will be divided, father against son, and son against father; mother against daughter, and daughter against mother; mother-in-law against daughter-in-law, and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” (NASB)

Since truth by definition is one, the truth will in a fallen world be hated, even despised – a world where everyone is a god, deciding for themselves what is wrong and what is right, will by necessity bring division; which is why to be born-again into His kingdom, you must take up your cross and deny yourself – deny your own self-perceived righteousness. This is why John the Baptist could only pave the road to God’s Lamb through repentance; there is no other way, and this repentance must be sincere of heart; the Lamb of God cannot be used as “Hell insurance” – as John called the religious who came to be baptized a brood of vipers. Matthew 3:7: “But when he (John) saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, ‘You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?’” (NASB) Has any true prophet from God – any true witness of God in both the Old and New Testaments ever been liked and embraced by the self-righteous – by the world in general? Is not true love defined as truth? God is love. God is truth.

Jeremiah 6:13–14: “For from the least of them even to the greatest of them, everyone is greedy for gain, and from the prophet even to the priest everyone deals falsely. And they have healed the brokenness of My people superficially, saying, ‘Peace, Peace,’ but there is no peace.” (NASB)

On the other hand, the lie by definition is many; the lie in a fallen world will be lovingly embraced where everyone is a god – deciding for themselves what is wrong and what is right which by necessity bring false peace as it will then be said, “it is their truth.” Who is the father of lies? Satan!

In the world we are seeing the “birth pains” come closer and closer together, according to God’s Word, we are also seeing ears become dull to the truth. Through God’s anointing as His Watchman, to God be the glory, had me write a simple book – maybe too simple for many who are wise, titled, The Portrait of a Christian for this day and hour; after all, as it’s written, the Gospel should be simple – yet also confounding (foolish) to the “wise” in the eyes of this world.

My Father – Almighty God may those who have ears, let them hear. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen and Amen!

Warning after Warning: Do you have ears to hear?

Come let us reason together: Exodus 9:8–12: “Then the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, ‘Take for yourselves handfuls of soot from a kiln, and let Moses throw it toward the sky in the sight of Pharaoh. And it will become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and will become boils breaking out with sores on man and beast through all the land of Egypt.’ So they took soot from a kiln, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses threw it toward the sky, and it became boils breaking out with sores on man and beast. And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were on the magicians as well as on all the Egyptians. And the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not listen to them, just as the LORD had spoken to Moses.” (NASB)

Exodus 14:4: “Thus I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will chase after them; and I will be honored through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD.” (NASB)

I started this ministry in 1996, shortly after the Almighty called me to be His watchman. At the beginning I was able to at least get the attention of many throughout the world; however, in the past couple of years I’ve seen fewer and fewer even willing to listen – even to the point that after I confronted a couple concerning a difficult problem, who were very close to me, told me they thought I was “struggling with some spiritual issues,” although at one time they “seemed” to believe in my calling.

Zechariah 1:10–15: “And the man who was standing among the myrtle trees answered and said, ‘These are those whom the LORD has sent to patrol the earth.’ So they answered the angel of the LORD who was standing among the myrtle trees, and said, ‘We have patrolled the earth, and behold, all the earth is peaceful and quiet.’ Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, ‘O LORD of hosts, how long wilt Thou have no compassion for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, with which Thou hast been indignant these seventy years?’ And the LORD answered the angel who was speaking with me with gracious words, comforting words. So the angel who was speaking with me said to me, proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and Zion. But I am very angry with the nations who are at ease; for while I was only a little angry, they furthered the disaster.'” (NASB)

Did you ever think – or even imagine a time when the pictures of pulling apart aborted babies in order to sell the baby parts for a profit would be so easily forgotten and dismissed – so easily become nothing more than just a memory, even among most professing Christians? Could you even imagine a time when the White House would be lit up in rainbow colors and be applauded – even throughout the world? Is the Almighty after warning and warning begun to harden hearts in order to fill His bowl of wrath so all will know He is the Lord? Is there a time when the Almighty will stop striving with mankind and He will harden hearts worldwide in order to further the disaster? According to His word, yes! Yet even now, who will believe the message?
