I Cor. 5: 6-7; 10:17; Hebrews 10:39
In the secret councils of heaven I once asked My Father: “How long, O Father, Great Eternal Majesty, King of heaven and Lord of every created realm, how long before we deliver our people from having to sojourn in Egypt?
And He saith unto Me: “Not long, My precious Son, not long.”
Now I ask Him: “How long, O Majesty of tender mercies, must My people dwell in Sodom?”
And He saith unto Me: “Until the very last grain of the True Loaf, My Church, is gathered into My garner and Mine elect have all been hidden in Christ Jesus, their True Ark.”
Behold how few grains I see trickling into the palm of My Hand after so great a harvest. How very few persevere with Me, and how great a multitude falls in love with Sodom and turns back toward it.
Not long, My people, not long, for why should I allow the precious grain in My garner be spoiled by devouring rats and their droppings of sin? Shall I not, rather, remove you all to a place where you can remain pure in heart and no longer be tainted from having to breathe the corrupt smoke of a wicked Sodom which is appointed to everlasting burnings?
