Psalm 1246

Psalm 1246
In their pride, Father, is their might,
In their wisdom they set themselves a nest on high.
In their eyes the tree their nest is in is knowledge,
Built on a limb of know it all.
With an ambitious heart desires of selfishness
create and set an image before them.
A monument of so-called greatness which doesn’t glorify You.
Driven by jealousy desolation is close behind,
For their image is desolation,
They show kindness but not from a pure heart,
Making promises of happiness, promises of material wealth,
promises of riches and love all in the name of the Lord.
It is out of deceit to bring many before this image
Hiding the true agenda
and once the agenda becomes known
those deceived are held against their will.
The agenda will become known –
For he who deceives, deceives only himself
and his successes will be brought to nothing
for his trust is in fortresses.
Walls built upon a foundation that shall not stand,
Because it isn’t built upon the One true rock,
Instead it is built upon ambitions of the size of an accomplishment.
Look at the mockery, Father,
that comes from he whose hopes are in the clouds of the air,
whose hopes are in himself,
whose hopes are in the creation but not the Creator,
whose hopes are in everything but You.
I’m comforted by the promise you’ve made
to throw this kingdom into darkness (Revelation 16:10).
I see men walking proudly with the word ‘Prophet’
before their name, surrounded by large crowds.
Who gave them that name, Father?
Did you tell them they were a prophet?
I don’t claim to be nor do I want to be,
I didn’t ask for what I’ve seen – yet it was shown to me,
and I am despised for speaking it.
But drowning myself in Your word my happiness returns:
For it is said:
Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel
far from the Lord. And their works are in the dark.
They say, “Who sees us?” and “Who knows us?” (Isaiah 29:15)
Woe to them for they have fled from Me! Destruction to them
because they have transgressed against Me. Though I redeemed them
they have spoken lies against me. (Hosea 7:13)
Woe to you who put far off the day of doom,
Who cause the seat of violence to come near. (Amos 6:3)
Woe to him who covets evil gain for his house.
That he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered
From the power of disaster. (Habakkuk 2:9)
Woe to you who are rich for you have received your consolation. (Luke 6:24)
Who to you who are full, for you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now
for you shall mourn and weep. (Luke 6:25)
Woe to you when all men speak well of you,
For so did their fathers to the false prophets. (Luke 6:26)
Woe to him who builds a town with bloodshed.
Who establishes a city by iniquity. (Habakkuk 2:12)
Woe to those who devise iniquity and work out evil on their beds.
At morning light they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. (Micah 2:1)
Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing. (Ezekiel 13:3)
Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness
and his chambers by injustice. Who uses his neighbors service without wages
and gives him nothing for his work. (Jeremiah 22:13).
May your will be done, Father,
I ask this in Jesus’ name,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.

The dream:
I was invited to a ministry or church.
There was the feeling of a very nice and warm welcome.
My desire to share my messages I've been writing was coming true in this dream.
I was happy to come as they invited me.
There was a feeling of uneasiness and uncomfortability but I was willing to put it behind me for the attention I was receiving
and didn't pay attention to it as I was attending ceremonies before this large monument or statue.
It was big like a skyscraper, made of metal and shaped like a cross.
Three balls of fire shot from its base to its top,
and as the balls of fire were falling back to the ground -
I could see one of them being the body of a person.
The feeling of uneasiness became stronger and I wanted to leave when the ceremony was over.
But I wasn't allowed to.
As I tried contacting my loved ones and friends - I was stopped and not allowed to by those in charge.
There was a feeling of being moved to different locations and I tried leaving hints and tips for those looking for me. Everything was found by those in charge and the niceness and warmth became anger and coldness as I was held against my will.
Their agenda was hidden to trick me and all the other people there.
Then I woke.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
