I was reading the word in 2 Chronicles 17 about the various wars kings won and lost when the Lord began speaking to me.
See what I have done?
“Yes, Lord. When they obeyed, You prospered them and fought for them. When they sinned, You didn’t. How do people not see the connection between obedience and blessing, Lord? How can they not see it? Your word says You change not – You are the same today as You were back then.”
It’s not that they can’t see it. They don’t want to. They like their sinful state of being and hope I will overlook it as ignorance on the Day of Judgment but it shall not be so, daughter. (I heard a terrible sadness in His voice when He said that.)
They shall pay for the sins they choose not to forsake. Warn them, daughter!
Tell My people their sins are grievous in My eyes and I do not look lightly on those who choose the pleasures of the flesh over Me and My ways. I have provided in My word a way out of your sins, My people. There is now no excuse except you want to continue sinning for why you are not free.
Seek Me, for I shall be found by you and will give you the keys to your deliverance if only you will seek My face and not the pleasures of the world instead.
This world shall pass away but I will never pass away. The treasures in My holy word will never pass away. You can be free if you will choose freedom, if you will choose Me, for I shall make you free.
Seek Me for I shall be found of you if you will seek Me. Come to Me as a little child, believing with all your heart, My children.
Do not believe the enemy’s words that you can never be free, for did I not say in My holy word that he is a liar and the father of lies? Why then do you allow him to speak to you so? Why do you choose to believe him over Me?
I desire for you to be free, little ones. Free indeed. Free and rejoicing in your father’s mighty power. Free to share your testimony far and wide of all I have done in you.
I desire the enemy would have no part in you, that you would not listen to his taunts and lies, that you would instead look at My word for truth to replace them.
Come away from the fires of temptation, My children, for your enemy seeks to destroy you through the lusts of your flesh.
John 3:19: And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Matthew 10:14-15: And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. (15) Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
James 4:8: Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
John 8:44: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 8:36: If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
I Peter 5:8: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
John 10:10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
