"Cry Out To Babylon!"

"My testimony is being taken down and replaced
with the gospel of an earthly kingdom!
My commands are being set aside and twisted
into a licence for cold love!

"Who will weep for My wayward, rebellious children?
Who will be broken with My heart of love for them?
Who will go speak My word and My witness to them?

"Go! Go tell My lawless children
that they are following the great apostasy!
Tell them to come out of Babylon!"

Resting In Doctrines

"Many of My people are resting
in their own hand instead of in Mine.
They have put their trust
in what they believe instead of in Me.

"The weight of their burdens still crushes them,
the heaviness of their fears still oppress them,
and the reality of their sins is still hidden from them.

"Their rest is in their understanding
and in their system of theology
instead of in My reality—
I am a system of verses to them!

"Because their rest is in their own hands,
they cannot see and come out from under
the mountain of their burdens, fears and sins.

"I long to set them free, but they are too proud
of their understanding to let Me open their eyes.
They are too confident that they are already free,
that they have no sins, fears or burdens.

"Look, My beloved people! I want to set you free!
I want to give you a greater and deeper rest
than what you struggle to believe you already have.

"I know you are afraid that you will be crushed
if you open your eyes and let go of your 'system,'
but I want you to trust Me, because I am not afraid!
I will never be content with you fearing your darkness.

"I want you to open your eyes.
Trust Me—I will be your light!
But if you do not open your eyes,
you will not be able to see My light."

Making War Against the Lamb

"What has My beloved become?
I called her to live in My love,
but she prefers warfare!

"I hold out My love to her,
but she comes to me demanding that
I give her earthly power and prosperity!

"When I do not answer her,
she speaks in My name
and seizes what she wants!

"When My messengers call her to return to My love,
she mocks and stabs them to keep My love
from interfering with her having all she wants.

"Why won't you let Me save you
from your prostitution, My beloved?
But didn't I know beforehand that you
would abuse My love and My name?
Haven't I seen all things from beginning to end?
Yes, I spoke about you long ago:
in you My words about Babylon are being fulfilled."

Following the Beast

"My children! My children!
Put down your flags!
I am not calling you to carry
the righteousness of any nation,
but to carry the Cross!
I am not calling you to defeat your enemies,
but to love them as I loved you.

"Do not listen to those who prophesy
in accordance with your flags,
for I have not sent them;
they are prophesying lies in My name
and are following a 'Christ' they have made
in their own image—an 'anti-christ.'

"They do not listen to Me when I speak,
nor do they turn from their pride,
but instead continue to follow their passions.
They have become like brute beasts,
unreasoning creatures of instinct
who revile what they do not understand.

"Do not follow the beast,
but repent and return to the Lamb!"

Turning Away From The Cross

"I am He who has given you everything
in My death on the Cross!
I am He who has lavishly blessed you
with all the riches of My Father
and every heavenly blessing in Myself!

"My fullness has been given to you
by faith instead of by sight.
Whether or not you see miracles,
signs and wonders or revelations,
you have all fullness in Me.

"You can never go any 'higher'
or become any 'fuller'
than you are when you rest
in what I have done for you
on the Cross of Calvary.

"I am calling you to return
to the one and only foundation,
to 'Christ and Him crucified',
for You have been searching high and low
for fullness and for manifestation.

"I am your fullness in Myself,
and the Cross is your manifestation.
The power I want you to have
and to be clothed with
is My agape love.

"When you put down the Cross
in order to 'go to a higher level',
you choose another foundation.
When you 'go forward' past the Cross,
you wander off the straight and narrow path.

"Come back to the foundation!
Come rest at the foot of the Cross!
I want you to know My fullness
—not in 'Charismatic' gifts—
but in the Cross!"

Prophesied Movement

"My beloved in Charismatic churches,

"You have sought me with great eagerness
to see the power of My Spirit,
and I have touched many lives through your prayers
and through your faith in My power.
You have prophesied in My name,
driven out demons and performed many miracles.
But many of you do not know Me,
and I do not know many of you.

"Many of you have sought power without discernment.
As a result you are at the forefront of the great apostasy:
more than any other kind of 'Christian'
you are immersed in prophesying politics,
seeking the riches of the world,
and encouraging war against flesh and blood.

"You have sought the manifestation of My Spirit,
but you have often missed the spirit of My Spirit!
Because you have sought the 'signs' of My Spirit
more than the heart of My Spirit,
you do not know when you are being led astray
into lawlessness and rebellion.

"Turn around! Turn around!
Return to your first love!
Return to My spirit!"

"This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
When any Israelite sets up idols in his heart
and puts a wicked stumbling block before his face
and then goes to a prophet,
I the Lord will answer him Myself
in keeping with his great idolatry.
I will do this to recapture the hearts of the people of Israel,
who have all deserted Me for their idols."
(Ezekiel 14:4-5)

A Better Hope

A Better Hope

"My people, you are citizens
of the kingdom that is from above,
but instead of setting your hearts on what is above,
you have set your hearts on things below!
You want to create the old covenant kingdom
in your nations and in the world!

"I conferred My kingdom on you by being your servant,
but you want Me to lord over nations with you instead!
The hope you have is the same hope Judea had
when I came to bring them the new covenant.
They did not recognize Me or receive Me,
and neither have many of you.

"For I am not the 'Messiah' that you are hoping
will come vindicate your righteousness
and transform your country into My kingdom.
My kingdom is not of this world;
I did not want to be made 'King' by force in Judea,
and I do not want you to make Me 'King' by force today.

"Beloved! Hear My call!"

"Do You Know Me?"

If we say we love God, but hate others, we are liars.
For we cannot love God, whom we have not seen,
if we do not love others, whom we have seen.
(1 John 4:20)

"My people want to be righteous by faith,
but they do not want to let obedience
to My commands of love and mercy
separate the righteous from the wicked.
They want to be justified but not to be just,
to receive mercy but not to be merciful.

"My people do not know who I am!
They do not know My Spirit!
They have made a 'Christ' in their own image.
They want My salvation and My kingdom,
they want My miracles and My power,
but they do not want My heart!

"My Spirit is calling them to the truth,
to repent and to submit to My discipline.
I will not let them call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’
while rejecting My Father's will.
If they refuse to know Me,
I will refuse to know them."

"Return to Me!"

"Turn around, My beloved children!
Turn around, for you do not know where you are going
and your ways are reckless before Me!
You are following politics and nationalism,
leaving behind Me and the Cross!

"Savage wolves have led you astray and devoured you
by teaching you to devote yourselves to your fears
and to preventing them from coming about.
And now, to gain control over your nations,
you are marching away from the Cross!

"Return to Me! Return to Me, My beloved!
Turn from following earthly freedom and prosperity
and return to following My commands!
Turn from your pursuit of satisfying your flesh
and return to My spirit instead!

"I am not calling you to rally under any flag or banner,
nor am I calling you to bring about prophecies;
I am not calling you to shout loudly or carry shofars,
nor am I calling you to sound any battle cry;
instead I am calling you to carry a cross.

"I am He who washed the feet of His enemies,
and I am He who called you to love as I loved you.
I am He who overcame as the Lamb of God,
and I have called you to follow Me as the Lamb
instead of as a conquering lion.

"I am sending My witnesses into the midst of Babylon
to prophesy to My rebellious people as I command.
In My witnesses I will again be rejected,
for the love of most grows cold among My people.
But I will bring out a remnant from them."

Fulfilling Prophecy

"To Christians who have married themselves to Zionism:

"I took you from every tribe, tongue and nation on the earth
and brought you into My covenant—the new covenant in My blood.
I taught you that My Father's loves the world so much
that He gave Me so that the whole world might live through Me.
I anointed you and clothed you with power from on high
so that you might go out to every tribe, tongue and nation
teaching the gospel and obedience to My commands of agape love.

"But you have rebelled against My covenant and My commands!
You have taught every tribe, tongue and nation
to seek My favor through 'standing with Israel' and Zionism
instead of solely through My blood shed on the Cross.
You have preached favoritism for the circumcision
instead of the love of My Father for all people.

"You believe that you are helping to fulfill prophecy,
that your devotion to Israel is preparing the way for My return;
I tell you that indeed you are fulfilling prophecy,
for you are deceiving the inhabitants of the earth!
You are using national and economic influence to coerce nations
into bowing to the nation that was wounded by the sword but lived.

"My Father revealed His glory in the face of His crucified Son,
in whom are all the treasures of His wisdom and knowledge.
But you have rejected knowledge in favor of 'mystery';
to follow 'prophecy' you have ignored My law of agape love!
Because you turned your back on My testimony and My commands
you have become the beast that rises from the earth:

'a great apostasy from every tribe, tongue and nation,
rejecting the fullness of God in His Son for an anti-Christ,
teaching blasphemy in My name among the nations;
without knowledge becoming like a brute beast,
like creatures of instinct to be caught and destroyed;
leaving the way of righteousness to perish in darkness.'

"My two witnesses are testifying among you,
calling you to repentance and back to the Cross.
Come out of Babylon, My beloved!"

From the Earth

"Why are you falling asleep, My people?
The end times are unfolding before your eyes!
The beast from the earth stands in front of you!

"The lawless preach rebellion in My temple,
nullifying My kingdom and My commandment of agape love
by preaching nationalism and Zionism instead.

"Those who are called 'prophets' and 'interpreters'
teach My people to set aside the righteousness of the Cross
and to bow to the image of 'Israel' instead.

"The great delusion has already begun and the spirit
of antichrist is enthroned in the Most Holy Place,
its voice accepted as being the voice of God.

"My witnesses testify in sackcloth
about the great apostasy among My people,
calling them to repent and return to the gospel.

"But My witnesses are rejected and accused by those
who do not want to hear about My perfect love and My commands,
but who only want to hear what their itching ears want to hear.

"Tell Me, My children,
where is the beast
from the earth?"

Justifying the Sacrifice of the Innocent

"My children! You are making martyrs!
The mercy you have failed to show others will be the standard
by which your enemies will withhold mercy from you!
The justification you gave for sacrificing innocent lives
will be the same justification that your enemies use
when they sacrifice the lives of the innocent among you!

"My people, I called you:

'to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free and break every yoke;
to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter;
when you see the naked, to clothe him,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood;
to do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk;
to spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed.'

"I have called you to sacrifice yourselves,
not to sacrifice the lives of your enemies!
I have called you to bless those who curse you
and to pray for those who mistreat you,
to love your enemies as I loved you
and laid down My life for you
while you were still My enemies.

"But if you compromise My love in order to justify
your nation, your politics and your wars,
your enemies will retaliate with the same cold love.
If you strike with the sword today in My name
—the sword of justifying your violence—
you will ensure the suffering of the innocent among you.

"They will be innocent in My sight and I will save them.
But you who have ignored My commands to justify your violence
will have chosen your own 'justification' instead of Mine.

"The hour grows late!
Set aside your pride and repent!
Come out of spiritual Babylon, My people in America,
for your house will be left desolate!
Do not lay down your lives justifying your nation
but be martyrs for My testimony alone,
and for sharing love I gave you in the Cross."

The Call of the Messiah

"Who will pray for the souls of Israeli Jews
instead of for their earthly nation?

"Who will cry out to Me for their freedom from sin
instead of for victory over their neighbors?

"Who will call their hearts to what is above
instead of to what is below?

"Who will declare the kingdom of the Son in the midst
of the darkness of those seeking their own dominion?

"Who will tell them of the righteousness of the Son of David
instead of the righteousness of their 'Star of David'?

"Who will call them to repent and obey the gospel
and the Messiah's law of agape love?

"Whom shall I send,
and who will go?"

"Not The Way To My Heart!"

"My people, 'Israel' is not the way to My heart!
Why are you wedding yourselves to Israel?
Don't you know I am a jealous God?

"You don't have to prove your love to any nation
—circumcised or uncircumcised—
in order to win My favor and blessings!
I am already in love with you, My beloved!
All of your efforts to please Me by 'loving Israel'
have only turned you into a prostitute!

"The picture you have of Me is not who I really am—
I am He who died for all on the Cross.
If you want to abide in My love,
love your neighbors and enemies as I love you."
