HEART IS BROKEN OVER THOSE THAT ARE CALLED BY MY NAME
Aug 21, 2003
There is rottenness in the hearts of My people, and just as a wooden fence
decays and rots away, the same thing is happening to those that are choosing to
walk in unforgiveness, bitterness, anger, and resentment. And little do they
know that it is even affecting their physical well being, and shortening their
How little My people understand of what I require of them, and how much they
demand of Me. Oh they call out to Me, and they want this, and they need that,
with never a thought that the reason that it doesn't come is the state of their
own hearts. Then they allow that root of bitterness to begin to defile their
relationship with Me, and with others.
In their lives this will cause the cluster of grapes, from which the new wine is
pressed, to begin to sour and stink. There is no mixture in what I am doing in
this day, and in this time. I cannot put the glorious new wine, into wineskins
that are filled with anything but the purity of My Holy Spirit.
I have outlined the path of the abundant life in My Word, and they will find it
by walking in My Ways. But, oh, they want to see the goodness of God in the land
of the living without giving themselves to me by obedience to My Word.
I have called, and I have called. I have sent My ministers, and My prophets to
proclaim that this is the acceptable year of their God, but it is also the year
of the vengeance. If My people who are called by My name choose to align
themselves against me, and in doing so align themselves with the enemy of their
soul, what say do I have? Then they begin to quote My Word, that no weapon
formed against them will prosper, when they have opened the door wide to him and
given him access to their health, their prosperity, and their promises, and
become bitter at Me.
I tell you that their bitterness will destroy them from the inside out. I have
warned, and I have called, and yet they choose to walk on in their rebellion,
and they choose to align themselves with the enemy and against Me.
The people that are called by My name are a rebellious house, and they have
hardened their hearts, and that which is upon them has been brought by their own
stubbornness. They are walking in iniquity and idolatry.
I am grieved this day. I am grieved at how little My people know of Me, and what
I require of them. My heart is broken over these that choose to walk on in
darkness, ignore My wants, wishes, and desires and hold tightly in their hands
this iniquity. I am grieved that these that say they are mine twist and turn My
word, and My ways, so that it suits their behavior, and allows them the freedom
to walk on in unrighteousness, and call it the righteousness of their God. This
stinketh in My nostrils.
Who shall ascend to My holy hill, and stand in My holy place? He who hath clean
hands, a pure heart, who hath not lifted up his soul to vanity, or sworn
deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing of the Lord, and the righteousness of
the God of their salvation.
How sad it makes Me when there are those that are not called by My name, those
live a more righteous life, than those in the house of God. And you wonder,
"Why has He tarried, and why have all that He has promised, and all that He
has said not come to pass?" Today I give them the answer. It is your own
heart, it is your iniquity, it is your rebellion, and it is your stubbornness
that has shut the door to the abundant life that I promised to you.
It is a day, and it is a time for prayer and fasting, and repentance at the
altar of God. So, come now in a spirit of humility, and let us reason together,
and be turned from your wickedness, so that the blessings will flow, thus saith
the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel.
Oh My heart is broken over the state of the people that are called by My name.
