Prideful Hearts and Closed Ears!

The Peace of the Lord Jesus Christ to all who have ears to hear,

I was in prayer and much travailing today in my 5th day fasting and the Lord started talking to me in Jeremiah 13 about the people who say that they are from God and in reality are not. Those who even once used to be close to Him but now they are extremely far from anything that is godly. Once close to God does not mean you will be close to Him forever!

This blog post is really to call all sinners, all backslid and all those who deceive themselves saying and thinking  that they are disciples of Jesus Christ but are not doing what He asks them to do. The bottom line is: Either you are from God or you are not, there is not a "in between". Either you are a child of God or you are a child of satan. Whoever is not of God is also called wicked. Whoever DOES the will of God is of God. Whoever keeps sinning is NOT of God and did not know God!

This is what the Lord Almighty says:

I The Lord will ruin the great pride of wicked people who refuse to listen to my words, who follow the stubbornness of their hearts and go after other gods to serve and worship them, I will make them useless and allow no pity or mercy or compassion to keep Me from destroying them.

Psalm 81:11-12

11 “But My people would not heed My voice,
And Israel would have none of Me.
12 So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart,
To walk in their own counsels. 

Ephesians 5:3-7

3 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this you know,[a] that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them.

Hebrews 2:1-4

1 Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away. 2 For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward, 3 how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, 4 God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?

2 Peter 3:9

9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[b] not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Proverbs 16:18

18 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. 

Romans 13:11-14

11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. 13 Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

May the Lord reward the obedient ones in these last days finding them worthy to escape what is coming,
