It is time for My children to take up their crosses. Many of My children have been lax to truly lay down the pleasures of their flesh. You think you can take your pleasures into the future in what I have called you to do. You cannot.
(When He spoke this last part, I heard in the spirit a ripping or tearing sound.)
Time will make you choose. You cannot walk a steep hill carrying your much baggage. You must choose what you will lay down for Me, for My name's sake, or you must stay behind the others. What will you choose?
It is time My children stopped their attacks on one another. You think you judge in My name and attack but you do not. Did My son judge in harshness or in love? Did He attack those who were seeking Me? Nay, He did not. He loved all who came seeking My kingdom and so should you also, but many of you devise your own standards for how My children should behave and you attack them when they do not. It is time to stop your attacks on My children and walk in love. Did I not say love your neighbor as yourself? Yet you show yourself much mercy, and show your neighbor none. It is an unjust balance, which is an abomination in My sight.
I love you all with a love that knows no bounds but My name is righteousness and truth, justice, mercy and honor. My children shall walk in these as well if they are to be called My own.
These are perilous times, My children. The times you walk in are like none that have come before and soon you shall know it. Players shall appear on the world stage unlike any you have encountered before now, events shall come which will cause you to reel in shock. Yet you know these things must happen, as My word foretells and will soon be.
You have decisions to make. Will you serve Me? Will you serve Me to the end, no matter the cost? Or will you continue to serve your flesh?
