So many of you grow weary in well-doing, because lukewarm believers and lost people just don’t appreciate your efforts to reach them with My love. You try telling them what wonders I’ve done to pluck you out of desperate situations. You speak to them of My fidelity to My Word and how I will do nothing contrary to the righteousness of My Word. You warn others that I am soon to appear in Glory for My church and that all who are found outside my Ark of Salvation shall be in deep peril during the dark days to come.
You warn nominal, cold and lukewarm believers about the deepening apostasy in My church, of the deception and the outright craziness of modern doctrines designed to tickle ears and empty wallets. You warn My sleeping saints that not all that glitters is gold and much of what is exciting My people today is such deadly deception that broken lives and ruined faith will be the only lasting result of these false revivals going on. Some accuse you of looking for a devil under every bush when you warn that satan is going round looking for a crack in the wall of My sheepfold so he can sneak in by stealth to devour My precious lambs.
Nominal believers and ice cold church people happily sleep in blissful ignorance while all these things weigh on your heart, My beloved. Lost people even crack jokes about who the latest candidate of the Antichrist might be, as if it’s of no importance to their own lives and all made-up hogwash. Christians snooze in the comfort of their easy chairs and treat Bible prophecy like a Harry Potter film, something spooky, bizarre and barely to be taken seriously, just entertainment. As they pop open a drink and watch their favorite Bible prophecy shows they become mere spectators watching their favorite religious charlatans on TV arguing and speculating about when the Rapture will come. Speculating on the End of the World has become a favorite pastime of thrill-seeking Christians who honestly would be terrified if any of those “signs of the times” came too close to the comfort of their sheltered lives. But you try and convince these people that it’s REAL and even the moral decay of their own society is proof of the nearness of My coming, many will say you’re just being old-fashioned and need to chill out. That’s exactly what they’ve done, chilled out and become so cold I can’t get through to My sleeping saints in Zion.
Just continue to be faithful like Noah was, My dear child. He preached his heart out and won only his immediate family. Noah didn’t convince any of those clowns who poked fun at him and laughed that his “crazy boat” had no water to float in. Until the first raindrops came and then became a mighty torrent of judgment.
Be faithful to be that vigilant watchman (or woman) vigilantly serving me at your post on the wall, watching in eager anticipation for My coming to take you away from the terrible judgment to come. And in that glorious Day of My Appearing you shall not be found wanting and you shall not be ashamed before Me. Instead you shall truly be able to rest from all your earthly labors as we two feast together in heaven for all eternity and bring peace, security and love upon the earth during My thousand-year-reign upon a restored earth.

You got the same perception I got watching the developing news. I didn't get involved with the action of emotions, because the first thing I thought of was "what's Jesus up to?" First thought there is writing on the wall, and shaking.
Amen sister, Amen! Oh, how I cry for His Church! It breaks my heart, that I can't find His body in this world. You know, the ones doing the will of the Father, that I am to be a member of. God Help us is all I can ask.
