Enough is Enough!
One thing I am learned since I began my walk with the Lord over 25 years ago is that people do not want sin pointed out to them, not by man or God.
Nor do they want to hear a word of the Lord prophesied of the CONSEQUENCES of their sins.
This is what the prophet Amos discovered when the Lord told him to prophecy to Israel.
The people told him to go somewhere else to prophesy Amos 7:12-13.
Amos was an ordinary herdsman, he wasn't a prophet or a prophets son, but God told him to go and prophesy to His people.
So when the people refused to listen, He pronounced judgment on them.
He told them that the days were coming that He would send a famine on the land.
Amo 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Amo 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
Amo 8:13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
The prophets of today as well as yesteryear, have cried out warning after warning to the people, to the Body of Christ to turn from their sins to repent and follow after the ways of God. In book of Amos, God is speaking about His true word coming through His prophets to warn, he is not speaking about the book the bible, because it wasn't written then, but His word that came forth through His prophets,
They have shut their ears to the word of the Lord and have invented their own words, or they do not believe what is being told them because it isn't what their Pastors and teachers are telling them.
The problem today is that much comes from seminaries or other Pastors, and most do not want to tell the truth as they will have many in their congregation leaving the church.
So many teach their own doctrines, smooth words for itching ears, so they don't have to hear the truth and turn from their wicked ways.
So many are leaving the church, because they want to hear the truth being told, because Yahweh God has called them to be faithful to him first and above all and His word. To be only sitting under teachers who teach the truth of the written word, as well as be among those who are faithful to God and His word.
Few speak out about the immorality in the church today, the people do not want to hear about their sins.
Paul exhorted the church to walk in a manner pleasing to God. He gave commandments from Yeshua Jesus to the church to abstain from fornication. Paul rebuked the church for not walking as the Lord has commanded us to.
1 Thes 4:4-13.
God has not lowered his standards of holiness to accommodate the values and trends of society.
The day is coming WHEN NO WARNING WILL COME, and Yahweh will give no more messages to the prophets, godly teachers and preachers.
There will be a famine of the word of the Lord. And when the great calamity comes, people will run to and fro for a word of what to do, BUT NO WORD SHALL COME, only to those who have been listening will He lead and guide.
Only to those who examine their hearts and allow the Holy Spirit in them to live move and have His being, led of the Holy Spirit in all things.
If God struck down Ananias and Sapphira for lying what more shall God do to those who follow the dictates of the flesh instead of being led of the spirit.
They were in the church, they were followers of Yeshua, how much more shall he judge the church for refusing to listen to His warnings.
Prophets in todays church are like palm readers, fortune tellers, they tell the people what they want to hear.
True prophets of God are not allowed to speak the truth to the body of Christ in most of the church. The leaders do not want the people to leave because they don't like having God point out sin. Or warn of judgment in the house of God.
The Apostle Paul sharply rebuked sin in the church, and Yeshua Jesus didn't coddle people either, especially the hypocrites.
The church is so much like Israel, following after the same pattern, they didn't want to hear about their sins either as we see all through the old testament.
Most want to come to church and be entertained and made to feel good about themselves. I am ok, you are ok, sort of like the psychology today.
Rather then worship God in truth and in the spirit. and to hear the truth of the word of the Lord. Most do not even realize they are not hearing truth.
The True believer does not want watered down Christianity, they want the truth of the word of God spoken, Faith comes only by hearing.
They want to be ready for the bridegroom, they are not wanting to just be the body of Christ, they are the BRIDE OF CHRIST.
Above all we must be faithful to the Lord and the word of God.
The time is coming when the Lord is going to say "enough" I will warn the people no more, they will not listen to me, they will have their own way, and they will not hear a word from Me any longer.
Judgment is at the door, you will see many things coming to pass in the days that are unfolding before your eyes. Many still are asleep and will not see it coming, they will be caught off guard, and they will shake their fist at Me, and wonder why this is happening.
I am not slack concerning My promises but am long suffering not willing any shall perish and that all come to repentance.
Some things are hard to understand, and they that are unlearned, they twist the scriptures unto their own destruction.
Seeing you know these things beware less you be led away with the error of the wicked and fall from your own steadfastness.
Take heed beloved the days are coming and those who listen I will tell them a word from behind them, turn in here or turn there.
Open your spiritual eyes, you will see My judgments are coming to the earth, this is only the beginning. look it is now everywhere.
You cannot see with spiritual eyes if your eyes are on the world, the flesh and your own interest, you must see with the eyes of the Spirit.
It is in the news daily, it is before your eyes, everything I said would come, famine, pestilence violent earth shaking, storms and whirlwinds, economic disaster, violence increasing daily, children against children, children against parents, perversion, and all manner of evil, all because of unrepentant sin.
I will warn no more, it is enough! Only those who are under My Lordship will be led of Me. There is little time.
You must know Me and My voice or else I cannot lead you through all the dangers coming upon the earth.
I will separate the branch that refuses to cling to me, you cannot play with sin and expect not to be burned. Do not spurn My grace and word spoken that shall turn many from their sins.
Judgment is coming to the House of God. Be Ready! Be Watchful!
