"Many are excited because they believe they
see signs of Revelation being fulfilled.
They are ready to warn the world that their behavior is evil
and that judgment is coming because of it.
Many hear of wars and rumors of wars
and declare that now is the time to make sure
that you are 'standing' on the side of the right nation.
"Their agape love has grown cold,
and they care only for themselves.
They speak My name only to make the nations
conform to what they believe My ways are—
but they do not know Me or My law.
"I am peeling off the sixth seal,
and many woes will increase.
Abide in Me and My command:
love one another as I love you—
even your enemies.
"Carry one another's burdens,
mourn with those who mourn,
comfort those who are in need,
share your food with the hungry,
clothe the naked and the ashamed,
and visit the sick and the prisoner.
Forgive as I have forgiven you.
"Many who are insincere will come alongside you.
Be patient and love them,
but do not yoke yourselves to them.
Follow the Lamb who was slain,
and obey My commands."
