The Fire Of My Jealousy

Deut. 32:16-29. 16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. 17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. 18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. 19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. 20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. 21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. 22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. 23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. 24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. 25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs. 26 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men: 27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this.,28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. 29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Oh My heart is broken, and I have been stirred to jealousy. The fire of My jealousy this generation has not beheld. But, I will now release it in this day and in this time. For I am a jealous God, and I have been provoked to jealousy.

How long should I wait, and how long should I tarry? Waiting for this generation to give their all their hearts, but they continue to ignore My decrees. They continue to ignore what I need from them, and their only thoughts are what they need and what I can provide for them. How long should I tarry? How long should I woo and draw, only to be rejected How long shall I wait for them to turn from the wickedness that they do in My name? How long shall I wait for a generation that walks with Me, and talks with Me, and enters into the intimacy that I desire with them? How long shall I wait for the time when I will have a people that will walk in My Ways, keep My commandments, statues, and judgments? How long shall I long to manifest My presence to this forward generation?

I can wait no longer. The things that I am doing, and are about to do are My final attempt to draw My people back, to even turn them again from their wickedness, into My loving arms. How else can I get the attention of the forward generation without releasing the fire of My jealousy.

How long shall I allow a church to exists that has no room for Me in their presence, but exists only to fulfill itís selfish purposes.. How long shall I allow man to be in control of a church, that was created for My purposes and plans. Oh My heart is grieved, and My Spirit is grieved over the works of man. How long shall I allow churches to exists that have their own agendas, and even make a mockery of the Holy things. How long shall I wait for the church that teaches the doctrine of demons and of man. How long shall I with hold the fire of My jealousy.

How long shall I allow the poor and the needy, the widow and the orphans to be ignored and shamed by the plans of man? How long shall I wait for a church that will meet the needs of itís neighbors, the poor, needy, the widows and the orphans. How long shall I wait for a church that will execute judgment and righteousness, deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, do not wrong, and do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, the widow, and the shedding of innocent blood. I have withheld My anger, but I have been stirred to jealousy. The fire of My jealousy is about to be revealed to this forward generation.

A generation that looks to people, and not to their God for what they need. A generation that ignores the Death of My Son, and the provision that His death made for them. Who go to and fro seeking from man, what they can only get from their God. A generation that has profaned the Holy things, and in so doing have become unholy in their words and in their ways.

I have been provoked to jealousy, and I can no longer allow this wayward generation to go their own way, and do their own thing. I am God, and there is not other. I will have a people that will walk in covenant with Me. They will walk in My Ways, they will keep My commandments, statues, and judgments. They will have no other Gods before Me. They will heed and obey the word of the living God, and to these I will reveal My Glory, they will live in My presence, and they will see Me face to face in the here and in the now. No, no they need not wait until they get to heaven, because these will have heaven on earth.

The day has come that I can no longer tolerate the evil that is being done in My name. The day has come that I will no longer strive with the spirit of man. But, I will release the fire of My jealousy in the earth
