HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE CRY OF THE LORD?

My last few blogs have been birthed from a dream I recently had about Jesus not just being a Savior but a Judge also. It is a word from the Lord on God’s judgments, and this is my purpose in sharing it:

“Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too” (2 Cor. 5:11 – NLT).

As a minister of the gospel I have a fearful responsibility not only to live out my own calling and walk worthy of it, but to share the whole counsel of God with people in order to persuade them to also submit their entire being to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. A great preacher from the last century spoke these words from his deathbed: “I’ve taken a good look into eternity and if I could preach again, how differently I would preach!”

I don’t want to fall short of preaching the reality of eternal things. When you receive revelation from the Lord it can seem like you’ve been to heaven or hell and returned to tell about it.

Much of what Christians hear today is devoid of the whole concept of Judgment because they think God will just wipe away our petty foolishness and overlook our sin and disobedience, when the truth is that many professing Christians today are in direct rebellion with God’s Word. When we look the other way as churches and preachers embrace dangerous doctrines and worldly lifestyles over the Word, we are guilty of losing our saltiness and allowing the darkness to spread without shining the light of God on it.

TRUE AND FALSE JUDGMENT

As one example, how can professing Christians continue to vote for immoral leaders in our government because they seem nice, while at the same time rejecting the upright because they are faithful and true to the Word? How could the people of Alabama in this past week’s election choose a radical abortionist and aggressive same sex marriage proponent over one of the finest constitutionalists and Bible believers that has run for office in the last 50 years? And to add insult to irresponsibility, call him an idiot and a child molester! — believing the reports of the ungodly media and their scandalous propaganda and smear campaign over God’s Word and their own conscience.

When professing Christians do this they show forth no judgment and no discernment. The same thing happened with the Obama presidency. How could so many  professing Christians have voted for the most anti-Biblical, anti-Israel, anti-morality president our nation has ever had? How could so many vote party over principle? Race over righteousnesss? Money over morality? Something is terribly wrong with their judgment. The lack of the holy fear of the Lord and a respect for God’s Word has left them void of true judgment and darkened their discernment.

We need to understand something about God’s judgments. His judgments are not meant to either condemn or justify. They are meant to bring us into agreement with God through His truth and righteousness. God is raising up judges (ministers who preach the whole counsel of God) in this hour to bring the people of God into true union with Him. Our nation is under judgment for this very reason. But judgment begins in the house of God with teachers and all ministers receiving the stricter end of it (Jam. 3:1).

Read Romans 1. See what happens to a people who suppress the truth in unrighteousness (v. 18). God eventually gives them over to uncleanness, vile passions, and a debased mind (v. 24, 26, and 28). You might object and say, “these verses are speaking of homosexuality! But notice v. 32.

“who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” 

When you vote for public officials who approve of same sex marriage you are operating with no judgment out of a debased mind.

The Church is in a mess today because she does not know Jesus as the Lord and Judge. “Lord” is a word we say, but it does not mean Supreme Ruler over our lives. “Judge” is a word we avoid because we think it’s not love, and we defend it with our “thou-shalt-not-judge” mantra. But Jesus is the righteous Judge, and the Father has committed all judgment to Him.

“For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son” (Jn. 5:22).

You cannot come into agreement with God unless you know His ways and His heart – both His goodness and severity, His love and holiness, His mercy and judgment. There is a present level of deception today mostly because we are not familiar with His judgments.

BLINDED SO WE CAN SEE

We must be blinded to our own reasonings, concepts, and traditions before we can see as the Lord sees. Saul of Tarsus had to be blinded by that bright light on the road to Damascus and remain so for three days before He finally could see (both naturally, but mainly spiritually) (Acts 9). As it was initially with Saul, so it will be with us. His own reasonings and religious traditions led him into direct conflict with the Lord’s plans and purposes. What Saul hated, persecuted, and opposed he would now learn to love and cherish.

“Who are You, Lord and what do You want me to do?” was Saul’s first response to the Light. His falsehood and opposition to Jesus Christ were totally exposed, before he surrendered to His Lordship. He had to be blinded to his own reasonings before he could see. In His light we see light (Ps, 36:9). I believe that walking in the light of God’s Word and His judgments is the greatest present need in the body of Christ in this hour.

WALKING BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT IS A BIG PART OF WALKING IN THE LIGHT

When you walk on this earth before the Judgment Seat of Christ you will walk in complete transparency and exposure. This is the beginning of true holiness without which no man can see the Lord (Heb. 12:14). It’s a sure safeguard against deception. Knowing that every one of your thoughts, words, motives, and deeds will be revealed at the Judgment Seat of Christ will give you freedom to live on the earth as you would in heaven. It is only when you hide from the Lord and His judgments that places a veil over your eyes, to hide Him and His truth and righteousness from you. Full transparency and exposure is required to maintain an intimate walk with Him and operate in His righteous judgments.

The first and greatest commandment will purge you of all false motives and keep your heart pure.

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets. (Mt. 22:37-40)

“Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets (Mt. 7:12).

Love is the greatest expression and value of the kingdom of God. But notice the expression “the Law and the Prophets”. The Law judges you by your deeds. The Prophets judge you by  your heart’s motives. The greatest function of the prophet’s ministry is to turn people’s hearts and their motives toward the Lord. All God’s judgments are based on your motives first. If it’s not true love then it won’t pass His judgments. Nothing is hidden from Him to whom we must give account.

THE FEAR OF THE LORD

“And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account” (Heb. 4:13).

Notice the expression, “To whom we must give account”. That is the attitude by which we must live that keeps us seeing and walking in the light of His judgments.

We can’t compare our devotion to others but must ever keep the Word as our personal mirror and standard. What should matter to you is not what others think, for that will keep you walking in the fear of man, which will cloud your judgment. What should matter to you is what Jesus thinks and sees when your eyes will finally meet His at the Judgment Seat. Personally, I fear regret more than anything else. My aim is not to disappoint the Lord but to please Him. This is what is known as the fear of the Lord. Read the following verses real slowly:

Therefore, whether we are at home [on earth] or away from home [and with Him], it is our [constant] ambition to be pleasing to Him. For we [believers will be called to account and] must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be repaid for what has been done in the body, whether good or bad [that is, each will be held responsible for his actions, purposes, goals, motives—the use or misuse of his time, opportunities and abilities]. Therefore, since we know the fear of the Lord [and understand the importance of obedience and worship], we persuade people [to be reconciled to Him]” (1 Cor. 5:9-11 – Amp.)

What an incredible verse of Scripture! The fear of the Lord will be known fully at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Therefore, you could say that the Judgment Seat is the fear of the Lord. It’s the same thing. The beginning of true wisdom on the earth is to walk in this holy fear (Pr. 1:7).

To know the fear of the Lord is God’s passionate desire for man even as far back as the Old Testament.

“Oh, that they would always have hearts like this, that they might fear me and obey all my commands! If they did, they and their descendants would prosper forever” (Dt. 5:29).

Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord (Ps. 34:11).

The fear of the Lord should also be our passionate desire.

“Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name (Ps. 86:11).

THE CRY OF THE LORD

Here is my narrative of what is happening now and the time of awakening that we are in:

The Groom is running desperately through the streets looking for His Bride, but most do not recognize Him or know Him. The Groom weeps as He did over Jerusalem long ago because they missed the time of their visitation (Lk. 19:41-44). It was shortly after this that Jesus went into the temple and cleansed it (v.45-46). This is what the Lord is doing now in preparation for His glory and His coming. That is the cry I am hearing that is greater than any cry because much of His Church is not ready for Him and do not recognize Him. And why don’t those who confess His Name recognize Him? Why aren’t they ready for Him?

It is because His prophets and priests have lulled His Bride to sleep by teaching them these false concepts of love and grace that allows them to do what they want and live how they want. Islam and Isis and the liberal humanists are rising in a warrior-like spirit while much of the church sleeps. Jesus is returning for a glorious Bride that is adorned with holiness with neither spot or wrinkle or any other blemish – blameless and without fault (Eph. 5:27). He is returning for a Bride who has zero tolerance for sin. He’s returning for a Bride with such a burning love for Him that she will take her heel and slam it into the serpent’s head and crush it.

I see Jesus riding on a horse with His sword wherein is written “truth and righteousness”. He will take the lampstands from the prophets and priests lest they repent of failing to teach His Bride the full counsel of God and sincere obedience, which is the essence of true worship and the fruit of the fear of the Lord.

Time is running out. Repent and renounce all sin and disobedience. Make Jesus your Lord now and walk in the light of His Word and judgments. Therein is the prosperity of all of God’s true servants and their descendants now and forever.

  1. This has me searching my heart and asking Holy Spirit for crystal clear direction into Gods plan for the work He has planned for me on this earth!

  2. Just a quick comment–I didn’t know much about Roy Moore; but I felt as if I should pray for justice (before the election). It doesn’t look as if there was justice, as it’s been reported, voting machines were tampered with. I believe it’s still of God to pray for justice–I have no idea how that could work out. I wanted to share this, if you, or anyone else might witness to the direction to pray for justice concerning this. How we need to be diligent to be praying for our country, and leaders, and specific situations going on, that so show the clash between good/God’s way, and evil! Thank you for the clear, powerful truths in this post!

    • We are so limited in praying with our own understanding only. Of course, we are admonished to pray for kings and presidents and all authorities in 1 Tim. 2:1-4, but much of our praying for things we do not know need to be done in the Spirit or in tongues.

      Happy to know these posts are an encouragement to you.

  3. The Lord woke me up and shared “it was going to be the beginning of sorrows” and what told me 5-6 months before 911 happened which told a lot of people at that time and again this time shared with intercessor friends as my friends are Apostolic/Prophetic Intercessors and the Lord had told them confirmation items for the people who only want to hear only feely good words and Bless me words*. Then Louisiana, TX and Puerto Rico happened, shooting; one fire after another in California. I was sitting at home when he told me to go to Napa which revealed something so was up there to sound the Clarion Call for Prayer.

    *A friend invited me to a major ministry and in reviewing the website it says they want NO WORDS of judgment only bless me club so how does this major ministry cut out: correction, rebuke, reproof, judging righteous judgment; how do they cut how those verses in the Bible=which gave church leadership all=every verse for years ago=the Report Church Abuse List”.
    A friend called awhile back and asked what my message would be to church leadership and NO hesitation: repent or death as so many are dead (the dead speaking to the dead).
    Recently was in a church, so sad: New Age, Guru, B.S. dead Gospel, strange fire, witchcraft legalism message, smary used car salesman preacher selling his dead message giving you his gospel, giving you his regime’s/movement’s god, their jesus and their unholy spirit and totally hiding sin and sweeping sin under the carpet and lying (explain the OVER 50 year pedophile, molestation, homosexual cover-up in Hillsong by Brian Houston of so many young boys/men=so sad). Plus Assassins of their god do not believe in the apostolic and or the prophetic so then they do NOT believe in Jesus Christ Son of the Living God because he was that gifting more than anything. i’M NOT BUILDING ANOTHER DEAD MAN’S PYRAMID CONSUMED WITH SELF-KINGDOM AND NEITHER ARE ANY OF MY FRIENDS WE ARE SO GLAD WE WOKE UP AND GOT OUT!**

    I like what my one Elijah woman friend said: “why would I leave the comforts of my home and go hear you”=no kidding as God/Jesus/Holy Spirit doesn’t get any money but the prostituting and the whoring of their name and who they are=people tithe and attend and get their brains, time and money sucked out=so sad. NOT TO MENTION THE PEOPLE/FAMILIES ARE NOT HEALTHY NOT AT ALL! “Losing My Religion” by Wm Lobdell; Don’t Call Me Brother by Austin Miles, Pagan Christianity (green cover) by Frank Viola, Thieves by Trey Smith, The Fleecing of Christianity by Jackie Alnor; Ungodly Fear by Stephen Parsons, Coming Out Alive by Beth Cavete, Exploiting the Need to Belong by Stephen Parsons; Does Benny Hinn Deserve More Consideration Than Jesus; 12 Reasons Why Millennials Aren’t in Church by ? and Why Young People Aren’t Going/or Attending Church by Jeff Crippen to name a few. I’ve been asking if churches could set aside their dead programs and just pray and repent and worship and read the Word, no one wants to pray but they want to prey on the people! Friends have been asking 1 will put a 1,000 to flight, 2=10,000. Leonard Ravenhill said it about prayer and the Jehu Prophet was right. So few want to truly pray and repent and the false church thinks great things are going to happen regardless of no prayer and repentance and they’re in for a RUDE AWAKENING!
    LOOK AT POWER OF THE BLOOD BY H.A. MAXWELL WHYTE (5 women).
    I asked an intercessor for her list of books only heard of two authors out of her list; PRAYER WASN’T IMPORTANT IN ANY OF THE INANE, INEPT, DEAD MOVEMENTS GREW UP WHICH WOULD CONSIDER ALL CULTS WE WERE BUILDING THEIR BUSINESS AND THEIR PYRAMID SCHEME=SO SAD (so many big names, BUT NO, NO, NO FRUIT AND NO WISDOM, THEREFORE NO FEAR OF THE LORD=but they’ll pray for you to die and or curse you with cancer)! HOW FEARFUL IT WILL ALL BE ON JUDGMENT DAY=MORNING!
    Such a hatred of woman in the Church as well as Children and Men and the Family=so sad!
    i don’t like my tithe money going to molest, rape, sodomize and murder children but so many pastors are murdering the sheep, spiritually, emotionally, and even physically (my evil former pastor who was sociopath and a narcissism kingdom of self hireling, wolf, huckster, snake oil salesman, con artist, false shepherd). I’m old and recently someone asked me what I learned in church and I said absolutely nothing but hymns, had to read the Bible on my own and read great teachers like Derek Prince on legalism and Leonard Ravenhill and Arthur Aaron Katz etc.,

    **None of the churches I ever sat in (demonations=not mis-spelled) from birth to death would have EVER gone through the Bible completely once, Foursquare, Assassins of their God, Vineyard, etc., NO BIBLE, NO PRAYER, NO TRUE WORSHIP, NO HUMILITY, NO REPENTANCE, NO HOLINESS, NO RIGHTEOUSNESS, just dead men speaking to a very dead audience that want to be brainwashed and love to have it so=nothing but guilt, condemnation, criticism and belittling=so very sad!
    cc: Rick Ross Institute and JP, DH, BS, PV (all my friends)!
    None of the churches ever sat in brought out the best in anyone except for the golden-haired boys that could bring money into their no different than mormon coffers and David Wilkerson knew all this before he died.
    Look at all the preacher’s who are listed in the satanic role call in the book “Battle Hymn” by John Scura and Dane Phillips so many sold out to mammon, control, power they fit John Paul Jackson’s “Jezebel Spirit” tape worse so many are homosexuals or part of NWO selling you their bill of goods and fast track to hell, hades.
    NOT ONE DROP OF THEIR BLOOD IS ON HEAD AND HANDS, NOT ONE!

    here’s the answer to fake gospel, fake love, fake churches, fake preachers although someone said mario murillo had utube video on. this generation of preachers is responsible for this generation of sinners=no kidding and how many have gone to hell and or going to hell over their evil pastors like h.a. lewis wrote about in “unholy anointing”?
    I had warlocks in my corporation business office and the most evil man met to date is an “Assassins of god” preacher! absolute EVIL HATED GOD, HATED WOMEN and so much MOLECH IN MY FORMER CHURCH SO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE REBELLED AND DIED, high price to pay for woman worshipping their pastor over God, Jesus and Holy Spirit and probably spiritually masturbating spiritual adultery with the charismatic witchcraft pastor and how many churches like and disdain the Husband who is the Provider and Father of Children. Most Churches are Matriarchal Bioche Churches sad to say and totally out of Order!
    Derek Prince: Judging, When, Why, How
    and Husbands/Fathers education=books=great teachers.
    My former pastor was telling people and controlling people who they dated and married and the ramifications of playing his god was divorce major=so many broken homes in the false church! Matthew 5-7 not modeled; Matthew 25:31-end not modeled. PRAYING FOR JEHU’S, ELIJAH’S, DEBORAH’S, JAEL’S AND ESTHER’S AND HIS WORD, DEEP DARK AND HIDDEN SECRET THINGS BE REVEALED ACCORDING TO HIS GOSPELS AND ISAIAH. AND EZEKIEL 9:6!
    AMAZING how many people SUPPORT GIVE THEIR GIFTS, TITHES, OFFERINGS, ALMS TO CHILD MOLESTERS, HOMOSEXUALS AND HABITUAL LIARS IN THE PULPIT!

    over 350 heads of church leadership knew this at the time including j. lee grady, david wilkerson, dr. dobson, so many heads of church leadership, magazines and they’re still playing dead church! Ezekiel 2:all.

  4. Explain: The Planned Destruction of America by Dr. James Wardner; Behold a Pale Horse by William (Bill) Cooper; Battle Hymn by John Scura/Dane Phillips Plague by Judy Mikovits & B.H.; Our Stolen Future by Theo Colburn; Seeds of Deception by Jeff Smith and Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow by Constance Cumbey; Dumbing Down Our Kids by Charles Sykes and Dumbing Down Us by John Gatto; Sometimes if God has/had a Kids Face by Bruce Ritter; Franklin Cover-up by John DeCamp; Brice Taylor’s book (drop in the bucket of reads while the false church is playing dead church as your Pastor’s are getting you ready for Fema Camps) but then the church has been a tool in the hand of satan to be part of that dogma also; so sad NO ONE IS JUDGING FRUIT and the people aren’t questioning what their Demonations own, worth, real estate, money in bank and overseas in every area, business, cars, vehicles, planes, their lifestyle, how many homes like 9/19-20/2004 exposure of TBN in the L.A.Times and Father, Son and Holy Rift=L.A. Times and all the other articles on TBN in Orange County Register etc.
