Thus says the Lord God

Иезекииль

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free. Moreover, He said to me, Son of man, eat this scroll and go speak to the house of America. So I opened my mouth, and He fed me this scroll. He said to me, Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your inward parts with this scroll that I give you. Then I ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth.

Then He said to me: Son of man, go to the house of United States and speak with My words to them. For you are not being sent to a people of foreign speech and hard language, but to the house of United States, nor to many peoples of foreign speech and hard language, whose words you cannot understand. But I have sent you to them who should listen to you. But the house of US will not listen to you, because they will not listen to Me. For all the house of America is impudent and obstinate. But I have made your face as hard as their faces and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. As emery harder than flint, I have made your forehead. Do not be afraid of them or be dismayed at their looks, though they are a rebellious house.

Moreover He said to me: Son of man, all My words that I shall speak to you receive in your heart and hear with your ears. Go to the oppressed, to the sons of your people, and speak to them and tell them, whether they listen or not, “Thus says the Lord God .” Then the Spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a great thundering voice: “­Blessed be the glory of the Lord in His place.” I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another and the noise of the wheels beside them, even a great rushing sound. So the Spirit lifted me up and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit, and the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.

Son of man, I have made you a watchman to the house of America. Whenever you hear the word from My mouth, then warn them from Me. When I say to the wicked, “You shall surely die,” and you do not warn him, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet if you warn the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity. But you have delivered your soul.

This is the kind of day I’m after: to break the chains of injustice, get rid of exploitation in the workplace, free the oppressed, cancel debts. What I’m interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families. Do this and the lights will turn on, and your lives will turn around at once.

Your righteousness will pave your way. The God of glory will secure your passage. Then when you pray, God will answer. You’ll call out for help and I’ll say, ‘Here I am.

Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you have not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered. But his blood I will require at your hand.

Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning. And you have delivered your soul. The hand of the Lord was upon me there, and He said to me, Rise, go out into the plain, and I will talk with you there. Then I arose, and went out into the plain. And the glory of the Lord stood there, and I fell on my face.

Then the Spirit entered me, and set me on my feet, and spoke with me and said to me: Go, shut yourself up within your house. As for you, son of man, they shall put bands on you and shall bind you with them, so that you cannot go out among them. And I will make your tongue cleave to the roof of your mouth so that you shall be mute and cannot be one to rebuke them, for they are a rebellious house. But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, “Thus says the Lord God .” He who hears, let him hear. And he who refuses, let him refuse. For they are a rebellious house.

Now go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Likewise, heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have of different infirmities and drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

You have been sent out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be judged by the court systems. Because of the Name of Jesus, you will be arrested; But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. You will be hated by everyone because of the Truth, who is Jesus Christ the Messiah, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. “Whoever acknowledges Jesus before others, He will also acknowledge before His Father in heaven. But whoever disowns Him before others, He will disown before our Father in heaven.

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who is victorious will not be hurt at all by the second death. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it. To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations—  that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’—just as I have received authority from my Father. I will also give that one the morning star.  Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

  1. Amen! “He who hears, let him hear. And he who refuses, let him refuse. For they are a rebellious house.” This is the heart of it. The Holy Spirit is speaking, but is anyone listening? We will see. God bless you

    ’18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.’ NIV I make a point of this because you have changed ‘Israel’ for ‘America’ and more, we know that our God is jealous for Israel so why do you think it is acceptable to do this. Saying you meant well will not do. Repent of this if you fear God. Halleluyah!

      By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God…. These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. Hebrews 11:8-16

      Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. Galatians 3:16
      For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:27-29

      And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. Revelation 5:9-10
      After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. Revelation 7:9-10

      By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for
      his name: Romans 1:5
      But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: Romans 16:26
      And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. Galatians 3:8
      And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. Revelation 5:9-10
