ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! (An Exhortation)



As we enter into this year with the apprehension of what could possibly happen with the Trump and Biden "tug of war" whilst the lives of millions are at stake, I am reminded of the fact that as the "swamp" of those involved with diabolical works in darkness is brought into the light by President Trump, that there remains a particular "swamp" that needs some deep cleansing as well and will not be overlooked.

As it is of utmost importance that the Prophet sees not only his own life in the light of God's dealings, so he has the responsibility to convey the heart of God with regard to His church.  My spirit is stirred within me in the knowing that the church is not quite ready with what is about to happen. The swamp of the church is about to be brought in the open.  As was the case with Ravi Zacharias through whom the Kingdom of God have receive a mighty blow, we can know with assurance that God will not be mocked!  For as was the case with Jesus when He ran into the temple with braided whip to overthrow the moneychangers, He now is ready to bring the whip unto the backs of His disobedient children.  Where we would look upon what has happend to Ravi Zacharias as tragic, and it is, we have to understand the message that is clearly given, and yet the church has not heard.  He has spoken and we have not heard.  We have sufficiently been shocked, but not moved to seek out our own hidden sins. 

God has tolerated the hidden sins of His children for so long, but will not bring judgment on the world before He sends it upon His church first.  For judgment begins with the house of God first.

1 Peter 4: 15 - 18

15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.

16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.  

And though we have all gone through our own personal judgments, the shame of the Bride being caught with her dress up exposing her nakedness as she has been whoring with the nations, is about to be broadcasted over the world.  No longer will He tolerate her ludeness and perversity but bring her sins in the open as an open judgment before the world.  Her lovers will look upon her as one who sold herself not for gain, but willingly allowing the temple to be defiled.  So that she may return to Him and seek His face afresh, for this shame only the blood can cleanse.  For unless He brings this judgment, she will remain in her sins and be given over unto it.  

As Trump has repeatedly said..."Enough is enough!" so, He is saying "Enough is enough!"  Will we look upon His judgment as the world looks upon Trump's, or will we tremble in fear as it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of God?  The judgment has to start with His Bride, because His coming is so near and yet still she dabbles in sin, still she is faintly concerned about the spot on her dress as she hides her sin in the depth of the swamp!  

There will be more Ravi's that will be exposed and it will start from the top.  Those who prophecied in His Name saying that they have heard of the Lord, saying, "Peace, peace!" or "The burden of the Lord!" will stand with their hands on their mouths as their lying, deceiving and manipulation is brought into the light!  The hirelings who have enslaved the sheep of His pasture will be held accountable and the money used for personal gain, will come back and testify against them.  They will be stripped poor and have to answer for their thievery.  Even so those who have spoken against His true prophets will have to answer to Him, for speaking against them, is speaking against Him.  

Woe, woe, woe to those who take this warning lightly and does not seek to have themselves abased before the throne of God in the light of His holiness.  For He will not be mocked by our sin and cause us to think that there is still time to dabble in the swamp...there is no more time!  Judgment has started, but have you put yourself under His hand willingly or does He have to enforce His hand upon you to obey and do as He has been asking you to do for how long?  

We insist that He is merciful, but know this...His judgment is His mercy now.  For unless you allow Him to judge you and not leave anything untouched by His devouring fire of His Spirit now, how will you be able to stand before Him very soon?  There will be those who will willingly come and those who will be found out.

Therefore, humble yourself and pray, seek His face and allow Him to judge you.  Today if you hear His voice do not harden your hearts.

16 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,

And say, Thus saith the Lord God unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.

And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.

None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.

And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare.

Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord God, and thou becamest mine.

Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.

10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.

11 I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.

12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.

13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.

14 And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God.

15 But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.

16 And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

17 Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,

18 And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.

19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord God.

20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,

21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?

22 And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.

23 And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord God;)

24 That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street.

25 Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms.

26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.

27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.

28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.

29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied therewith.

30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord God, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;

31 In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;

32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!

33 They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.

34 And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the Lord:

36 Thus saith the Lord God; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;

37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.

38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.

40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.

41 And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.

42 So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.

43 Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord God: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations.
