My Son taught My people a higher way of life than merely being fair with others. He taught them to return good for evil and to bless those who cursed them. For 2000 years My dear children have lived this way, and much good fruit has come of it. Sinners have come to the Foot of the Cross for cleansing who otherwise would never have repented. Why? Because they were so struck by the supernatural love they found in the lives of believers who patiently tolerated their wickedness and continued to pray for them.
Increasingly I see sinners taking a different attitude to the gentleness and forbearance of My people. Today if a Christian entreats the sinner with patience and gentleness, he often gets it thrown back in his face with contempt. Gentle believers are taunted as weak wimps and pushed around even more by satanís puppets. Things of the Kingdom of God are ridiculed. All three members of the Godhead have been lampooned by comedians who have no fear of God in them.
The straw that broke the camelís back is this: My Word has been tampered with! So-called theologians have rewritten parts of Scripture to suit themselves and to pander to an unbelieving generation which utterly rejects My standards of holiness. My virgin birth is edited out as unnecessary and impossible, even for God. Other passages deemed politically incorrect are erased or altered to mean something else.
Well, Iíve got news for such reprobates who dare desecrate My Eternal Word. It is settled forever in heaven and cannot be altered. I shall cut off My detractors off from the face of the earth for not only rejecting My inspired Holy Word, but hindering others from entering into Life Eternal. I will visit the earth with devastating judgments because they have dared to do this, and there shall be no further delay!
I will cut short the days of My forbearance with evil. If sinners donít want My gentleness, love and mercy they shall taste of My just wrath. If I deal sternly with Christians who begin to take My mercy for granted, then how much more severe shall I be toward sinners outside My family, who have even less of a right to mercy than My own children?
I shall shortly smite the earth with the rod of Judgment, over and over again, as I pour out seven bowls of My fierce wrath. What I said through the prophet Hosea I say to stiffnecked, unrepentant souls: ďLO-RUHAMAHĒ. No more mercy.
