Have We Forgotten The Hand of Mercy?


    This morning I asked of the Lord..."What time are we in?"

    He replied it's the same as in the account of Mary Magdalene who was caught in the act of adultery in John 8.

    Yes God will judge the church and the Lord said she is like Mary that was exposed for her adultery. But we all were once guilty before the Lord because of spiritual adultery because we should be betrothed to Him as a chaste pure spotless virgin not prostituting ourselves with many lovers, with idols and things that caused our devotion toward God to be corrupted because of half-hearted devotion.

    The judgment on the WOMAN - THE CHURCH is because He loves her. God's desire is to expose her in the light of His truth to bring her into the agreement with Himself.

    The Lord Jesus Christ is going to teach us to truly love one another because we still stone our brothers and sisters through accusations, fault finding and criticism. Many are still using the sword of truth through legalism to kill without gentleness - mercy or grace. We still shoot our wounded whereas we should be praying for each other and covering each other with love while we consider our own weaknesses.

    Many of us have been rescued out of the religious camps of traditional deception but many of our brothers and sisters are still trapped there. God brought us out so He could reveal the truth to us and many of us will be sent back for a time because the Lord wants to rescue the true seekers of truth. He brought us out so we could learn and understand God's heart. We met the Messiah like the Samaritan woman outside of the religious Synagogues of men because it's the only way that we could discover the pure water of the word and because Jesus desired to create a depth within our earthen vessels and to establish us like a Jacob's well so that He might draw the rest of those who hunger and thirst after righteousness to His ministry through His forerunner bridal sons and daughters.

    I say to you that there is a Spiritual famine of revelation knowledge and true Holy Spirit ministry throughout the world of Christianity and the Lord gave me Lamentations 4

    1 How has the gold become dim! how has the most fine gold changed! the stones of the sanctuary are poured out at the head of every street.

    2 The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!

    3 Even the jackals draw out the breast, they nurse their young ones: the daughter of my people has become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.

    4 The tongue of the nursing child clings to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaks it unto them.

    5 They that did eat delicacies are desolate in the streets: they that were brought up in scarlet embrace ash heaps.

    6 For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, with no hands laid on her.

    7 Her princes were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their appearance was of sapphire:

    8 Their appearance is now blacker than coal; they are not known in the streets: their skin cleaves to their bones; it is withered, it has become like a dry stick.

    9 They that are slain with the sword are better than they that are slain with hunger: for these pine away, stricken through for lack of the fruits of the field.


    God says in Isaiah 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD has spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

    3 The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's crib: but Israel does not know, my people do not consider.

    4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a descendant of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they have turned away backward.

    5 Why should you be stricken any more? you will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

    6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither soothed with ointment.

    7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

    8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, as a hut in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

    9 Unless the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

    10 Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.

    11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of male goats.

    12 When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to trample my courts?

    13 Bring no more vain offerings; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot endure; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

    14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary of bearing them.

    15 And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

    16 Wash you, make yourself clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil;

    17 Learn to do good; seek justice, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

    18 Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

    19 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land:

    20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.

    21 How has the faithful city become a harlot! it was full of justice; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

    22 Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with water:

    23 Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: everyone loves bribes, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come before them.

    24 Therefore says the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will rid myself of my adversaries, and avenge myself of my enemies:

    25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and thoroughly purge away your dross, and take away all your alloy:

    26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

    27 Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and her converts with righteousness.

    28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.

    When I asked the Father why He compares His own people and their religious leaders (HIS ADULTEROUS MARY) in verse 9 and 10 with Sodom and Gomorrah, He revealed the condition of many church bodies in Ezekiel 16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom, pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

    50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw fit.


    The Holy Spirit speaks -


    "Are not my people today like those of old who turned from their God to idols? Are they not like Aaron who made a golden calf for the people because their hearts were set to do that which they desired? I say, my people in this day have also made themselves idols of gold and silver, even that which is the fruit of their desire. My people have sought out those like Aaron who have listened to their desires rather than hear my voice. For Aaron represents the religious leaders of today who have made idols for my people to worship. They have gone after that which satisfies the lust of the eye and the pride of life. They have erected that which is pleasing to fleshly pride in that they have made to themselves vast systems and organizations which exalt the pride of man and give glory to the works of man's hands. Therefore my indignation has come up in my face and I am about to bring judgment on the idol­atrous systems of man. For Aaron has submitted to the desires of the people and has led them astray. Even so, shall I cause Aaron and all his idols to cease? For the day of my judgment is near.

    Was not Aaron among those called to my holy mount to behold my glory? And were not Nadab and Abihu his sons present also? And did they not behold my glory with Moses and the seventy elders? (Exodus 24:9-11). Even so, does this picture that which I brought about at the beginning of this age when I poured out my Spirit. I caused my chosen ones to be­hold me, to enter into the glories of my presence and power, and to eat of the good things of my Word and my covenant. But then the desires of the flesh began to creep in, and the aspirations and pride of life began to ferment, and shortly there began a decline in the spiritual peak to which I had brought those who were the recipients of my covenant at Pentecost. After a period of time idolatry began to take root in the hearts of the people, and they clamored for that which was more tangible.

    Likewise, men who aspired to be something in the eyes of the people began to come to the fore. The result was a gradual turning away from the pure word and doctrine of the apostles and the forming of the creeds and doctrines of men. Following this came to the actual fulfillment of the apostasy of Aaron and the idolatrous system of the Church-State combina­tion was formed. This is that golden calf which was made by the priesthood to keep the people in bondage to the spirit of Egypt and away from the truth.

    But the time came for judgment. Down from the mount came my servant Moses. His very absence accounted for the lapse of the people. For they said, "We know not what has become of him." (Exodus 32:1). Even so, does this portray the time when Jesus was taken into the heavenly mountain to remain with the Father? It was after his ascension that the people lapsed into idolatry. It was during His absence that the forces of evil took over. But true to the pattern the Lord shall return to judge His people. He is even now coming in Spirit to bring recompense to His adversaries and to call a people to Himself. Even now is He raising up those who will wield the sword of judgment to bring division in the camp? For without the ferment of division that which I purpose cannot be accom­plished. Therefore into the religious camps will I send those prepared to wield my sword of judgment.

    As Aaron pictures the religious idolatry of this day, so have I patterned my Word to portray that which shall take place following. Gathered to me shall be those typified by the Levites who stood with Moses at the gate of the camp. (Exodus 32:26). The Levites in this instance portray my end-time Body which shall separate from the idolatry of the people and stand with me in this last day. And I will use them mightily says the Lord."

This is so true...we fall away, get discouraged and give in to the idols of our world. We are no different than Aaron and his tribe who were set apart as priests and spiritual leaders!! They allowed the people to worship a golden calf instead of our one true almighty God! We need to guard our thoughts and actions and remain steedfast to our Heavenly Father for the time is near.
