Closing word 11/9/2020: Jeremiah or Anaiah? Another side of the coin
This post is only for those who have an open heart to perhaps hear a present word of the Lord. If not, you should probably go to another persons page to read.
The Lord is speaking me to present another side of the coin by a series of questions? Please read this with an open heart and mind.
Question? When does the will of man supersede the will of God? America voted and accepted the results because this is the democratic way.
What if this election was not really the democratic way at all? What if the democratic way we all cherish is opposed to God and His will? Should we just accept it?
For many weeks I have heard over and over, “who is on the Lord’s side, even before the election, why ? I said, Lord why are you saying this? He said I am saying it for this election and to my church.
Some ministers believe America is not a Christian nation. It may not be now, but it was at it’s inception. This land was set apart for God at Plymouth Rock by the Pilgrims where the Mayflower Compact was established.
Just because ministers say this is not a Christian nation doesn’t make it right. Our motto is one nation under God. Which God did they pick to be under? Was it not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Lord Jesus Christ?
Other settlers came for money and other reasons, but the first ones that were sent here dedicated this land to God, by GOD! Please stop rewriting history with cancel culture theology.
Ministers of God, I have a question for you, if God shows you a family or a person is out of the will of God and their sin and choices are going to destroy their life, what do you tell them?
Do you try to show them what they are dong is not of God and how it can harm them with great love and compassion? I hope so. Do you ignore the warning? Do you water it down? Do you not even bring it up and just pray for them?
Next question, what if God shows you they are not listening and their physical life is in danger? What would you do? Would you tell them if God told you to go to them? I hope you would, or would you just pray about it?
What if they reject you and the word? What if they call you judgmental, not loving, and what you are telling them is evil and to repent is just hate speech and you are religious? What would you do? Not go and just pray about it?
Would you say Lord, I obeyed you, I tried to tell them your word, but he doesn’t want you? I can’t force him, and that is the truth.
Now, what if God woke you up and told you that their life is in imminent danger, that the place they are going tomorrow, someone with a gun is going to be there and their life is in danger and would you go warn them?
What would you do, knowing God is warning you to save their life and not for them to be killed, would you go? Or would you say, let’s get on with church and just pray for him?
What would you do if you called him and warned him not to be at the place they are going because the enemy is going to try to kill him, and he refused to believe you? Would you just let it go? I told them Lord, let me back to my church business? I will just pray for him!
Lastly, what if the Holy Spirit rises up in you and tells you to go to the place where this person is and drag them out if necessary to save their life, this person is not supposed to die yet.
Would you do it? Would you say you don’t have authority to rescue them when God told you to rescue them? Would you be religiously correct and write in your notes, I tried to warn him but he wouldn’t listen. This is a democracy, the will of the people overrides the will of God?
What if all his friends are saying that you are filled with hatred, get on with it, get over what they are telling you. They are all wrong, hypocrites for telling you what you are doing and your choices are wrong.
Go ahead and accept everything in that room you are about to go into no one is going to harm you it is just an election...oops, just a birthday party who would harm you there? That guy warning you is a hater, a false prophet and hypocrite who doesn’t know God at all. Would you still go and tell him?
Would you give up because all the other voices are arrayed against you? Or would you still warn him?
As you are heading there, and God says to call them and tell them if you don’t leave there in the next 5 minutes I am going to come and get you and drag you out of there, this is serious you are about to die? Would you do it?
What if that word as you are speaking stops him for just enough time and someone with a gun comes into the room, and the person hides under the table, and calls you back ands says, there is someone with a gun there.
You immediately pray in tongues and the man with the gun runs out of the house, and the person you were warning runs out and is saved. Would it have been worth it?
I ask you to what lengths will God go to turn us around because the choice we make individually or even as nation could kill us or cause us to abort our destinies? Would He not go all the way to warn us? Oh He did that didn’t he, and even went to the cross to save us.
Is this a story. No it actually happened... God sends his prophets to warn those who are in danger and won’t listen. Would you be open to hear God every step of the way and even put your reputation on the line, be persecuted and called false and a hypocrite for warning someone?
This man’s choices were leading him to be killed prematurely. God wanted this man to “have more time” and sent a prophet to warn him that if they continued on that path they would surely die. Isn’t that love? Isn’t that mercy? How is that hate speech?
Wouldn’t you love someone enough to lay down your life to warn them no matter what the repercussions are?
Now look at the life of Jeremiah? Who did God send him to? He sent him to the King and the people of Israel. What was the message, everything is ok?
What you are doing is it acceptable to God? No, it is one of the strongest rebukes in the Bible outside of Jesus rebuking the Pharisees.
Jeremiah's message was a warning to the entire nation, who was trusting in the city of Jerusalem and the temple worship that God would never let them be taken over by the enemy because of their sin.
Let’s get past all this 2020 stuff and do the will of God! Yet, the will of God was to repent and undo their wrong choices.
The king and the people believed God was going to bless their unrighteous king, leaders and people of what they were doing to God and his people because of Jerusalem and the Temple.
How deceived and wrong they were. How sure they were right and Jeremiah was wrong.
God told me He is intervening in our nation with a warning. Our vote mattered. Our vote was a spiritual agreement. The question is what and to whom did we agree with?
It amazes me that some in the body of Christ don’t believe abortion is a big deal when it comes to voting.
Somehow they have to come up with a reason to deny the horror of a party that wants abortion up to the birth, so they come up with human reasoning to talk it away so they can vote for them.
They want to focus on other social issues, moral issues that are contrary to God and say well we are not really citizens of this nation we are citizens of the Kingdom.
That is truth and we should not be caught up in the affairs of this world unless God is. There are times this is true. In the Book of Revelation, is God concerned in the affairs of this world?
The Kingdoms of this world are going to become the Kingdoms of our God in Christ. If He is concerned with them to change them shouldn’t we be in aligned with that will?
There is a theory in some parts of the body of Christ, that the answer is we can’t stop abortion, let's try to get more kids adopted.
Yet, 6,000,000 babies are killed and their blood cries out to God and God doesn’t see this because we are a democracy? The people have spoken, this is the will of the people.
The will of the people who supposedly voted to agree with this evil and many other evils of the one world government and God just turns His head.. this is your choice, live with it. I have better things to do like hold up planets? Are we kidding ourselves?
The will of the man in my story was causing him to die. It was his will and choice, but God loved him enough to do all he could to save him, even to the point of going to get him out himself by sending His servant.
Sometimes our choices are quite deadly and can take us out and home prematurely when God had so much more for our lives. Those lives that are taken prematurely end up with “aborted destinies", and not fulfilled.
Some may be taken out as soon as they are conceived, some in the first trimester of their lives, some in the middle and some are late term abortions.
So what would be the answer to all these spiritually aborted lives? Should we build an adoption center next to the churches where so many lives and ministries end up aborted or buried by a religious structure that chokes them to death?
While the places where these spiritual abortions are happening we keep voting by attending them? Would that make sense to do? Well this is the “will of the people” get over it, move on because this is democracy, we are not Christian churches, we are political religious churches pretending to be God's!
What if a person's choice is so serious that it not only effects them but everyone of their family members they live with? We have seen plenty of that haven’t we?
Would God not try to intervene to help, forewarn, speak a word, to change the person's heart and mind to repent now before it effects the whole family?
With all the love in my heart I say we can not ignore what God is not ignoring. We can’t tell the people to go on with their life when God is warning us differently?
When the body of Christ in this nation becomes like the Israelites in the time of Jeremiah, who forsake the Lord the foundation of life, and dig their own cisterns, will God accept that and say nothing? No, He won't and He will warn us!
Will the Lord not judge a nation when they do exactly what the Israelites did in Isaiah chapter 1? Have you read it?
God hated their services, their sacrifices, their singing, their prayers and yes their praise and worship. They were an abomination to Him because of the sin in their hearts as a nation.
He hated their new moon festivals for when they lifted their hands they had blood on them. He said, “do you think I am going to listen to your prayers, when they are full of vanity and pride? He said, I will not.”
The Lord sent Isaiah to warn them to turn around repent or face judgment. It is amazing all the ministers of God that say they believe the whole Bible but God would never judge this nation as He did Israel.
What happens to a nation who was like the man in the first part of the post, that will not under any circumstances listen to God, repent and turn, their direction around to the Lord?
Will God wink at it and turn the other way as if it does not matter? What if this election, this moment in time, God is screaming to us prophetically, there is a gun where you are going?
What if the house you are going to for that party you believe is ok and safe but it really is not? What if you find out the word of warning was right?
What happens when you find out that a man has weapons to kill your life and take you out of destiny prematurely because you are not listening to God’s warning? What would you say if you were dead? I should have listened?
What if God put this election on hold to give the church time to consider the choice they just made on what direction this nation is now headed and he wants us to turn around and save us, and even change the results of what you wanted?
You say you don’t care, but that is a lie because some of the comments I have read would never be written in the manner they were unjustly.
What if God is raising up voices to declare that we must repent, we must break agreement if we didn’t ask God who his choice was for President to save us?
What if God is rising up deliverers for this hour to warn God’s people and get them out of danger and CHANGE THEIR HEARTS AND MINDS TO DO GOD’S WILL in this nation?
Would you accept it, receive the word, or would your political, intellectual and spiritual bias shut your heart down?
Will we be like that rebellious and stiff necked man who did not listen because he knew better than God.
Will be the people who want the outcome to be our way based in our human wisdom? Will we reject God’s word and warning?
Right now, The Lord is trying to send that warning to this nation. He is sending in the prophetic rescue team to this nation and to give his church time to repent and turn around.
Does Democracy and the will of man trump the plans and strategies of God upon the earth? Then what if it does not? Why deceive God’s people like that?
Who are we really rejecting, could it be God who we say we are for? How can you objectively look at this election and declare it over, accept it? That is the lie of the media.
The vote count is not over. Some states may switch back to too close to call, then what? Will we riot in the streets because perhaps President Trump still has a shot to win? What if he does?
Will we learn anything by it, or just blow it off? Well that must be the will of God, let’s go on anyway? This is a time to prepare a people to enter the kingdom age. We don’t have time to play with their lives.
Could a change come in this election, can that happen? Will it happen? Will God be able to rescue His church and this nation in time if we let him? Yes, he could just do it, but we do have a part to play in it if that is his will.
We can continue to resist and rebel and call the prophets that are warning hypocrites and haters, but if you are wrong. I hope you understand the consequences for your life and the people.
It is a dangerous thing to touch God’s anointed and to call false that which is genuine.
Jeremiah had that happen to him. Hannaniah prophesied his word to the King, that democracy will reign, God is with us, God is going to deliver us from the King of Babylon.
Might be good to read it. God has a way of proving things like who is speaking for him and who is not? Touch not God’s anointed and do his prophets no harm is written for a reason.
The False Prophet Hananiah
28 In the fifth month of that same year, the fourth year, early in the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, the prophet Hananiah son of Azzur, who was from Gibeon, said to me in the house of the Lord in the presence of the priests and all the people: 2 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon. 3 Within two years I will bring back to this place all the articles of the Lord’s house that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon removed from here and took to Babylon. 4 I will also bring back to this place Jehoiachin[a] son of Jehoiakim king of Judah and all the other exiles from Judah who went to Babylon,’ declares the Lord, "for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.’”
5 Then the prophet Jeremiah replied to the prophet Hananiah before the priests and all the people who were standing in the house of the Lord. 6 He said, “Amen! May the Lord do so! May the Lord fulfill the words you have prophesied by bringing the articles of the Lord’s house and all the exiles back to this place from Babylon. 7 Nevertheless, listen to what I have to say in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people: 8 From early times the prophets who preceded you and me have prophesied war, disaster and plague against many countries and great kingdoms. 9 But the prophet who prophesies peace will be recognized as one truly sent by the Lord only if his prediction comes true.”
10 Then the prophet Hananiah took the yoke off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah and broke it, 11 and he said before all the people, “This is what the Lord says: ‘In the same way I will break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon off the neck of all the nations within two years.’” At this, the prophet Jeremiah went on his way.
12 After the prophet Hananiah had broken the yoke off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah:
13 “Go and tell Hananiah, ‘This is what the Lord says: You have broken a wooden yoke, but in its place you will get a yoke of iron. 14 This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I will put an iron yoke on the necks of all these nations to make them serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and they will serve him. I will even give him control over the wild animals.’”
15 Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, “Listen, Hananiah! The Lord has not sent you, yet you have persuaded this nation to trust in lies.
16 Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you are going to die, because you have preached rebellion against the Lord.” In the fifth month of that same year, the fourth year, early in the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, the prophet Hananiah son of Azzur, who was from Gibeon, said to me in the house of the Lord in the presence of the priests and all the people:
Everyone was convinced Hanna’s word was the right one, the right choice, because it is WHAT THEY WANTED TO HEAR! There was no place for the true prophet of God Jeremiah.
The enemies' plot was to cast a delusion over the king and the people to believe the lie and not the truth. That God was for this king. God did not see the sin in the nation and in the leaders and God was going to give them victory?
Is that what happened? Or did the King of Babylon come as God said, and burn the entire city, keep the king alive, and pluck out his eyes and save Jeremiah and put him in his courts?
Which prophet spoke for God
, or Jeremiah? Beloved, that is what is before us now. Two prophetic voices speaking, one is of the Ananiah company to believe that things are settled now and everything is ok.
The other is Jeremiah’s words, that God gave him showing him the condition of the leaders, the people and God’s house.
The deception for the King and his counselors was that God was not serious about the sin in the camp, or their turning away from God to idols, and God would say they were ok.
Because they never thought that the city of Jerusalem could be overtaken because it was God’s city, they grew overconfident in their sin, just like it is now in America?
If God allows things to stand as they are, we will have what we wanted like they did, and look at what happened.
Beloved, we have little time to repent. WE have little time to get things right if we want the more time God wants to give us.
If we don’t belive him, or want it, like the man in the story. God will ratchet up the warnings until we are without excuse.
This nation is in the balance, we are at a tipping point of becoming a goat nation and not a sheep nation.
But if you believe this nation is not Christian then perhaps it won’t matter much.
Joel 3: 3 The Lord says,“At that time I will restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem. 2 I will gather all the nations and bring them to the Valley of Judgment.There I will judge them for all they have done to my people.
Psalm 110: He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers of the whole earth.
May God prove His word today. May He reveal who are his Jeremiahs, or the enemies Hannaniah! I trust God to prove and reveal and establish His true prophets and what they say in the name of God will come to pass, welcomed or unwelcomed.
May we just take a moment and ask God one more time about where are, who we voted for, what His will was, and are we in alignment with Him.
If you chose correctly you can easily do this, if you have not, maybe we don’t want to hear what God says because we did not give him the right to chose.
It is not to late to repent and come boldly to the throne of God to receive mercy in your time of need. Let’s at least ask, what harm is in that, but hurting our pride?
Today if you hear His voice, harden not your hearts. Selah!
