GET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER !
God’s day and time of wrath and judgment is coming upon all who are complacent, unrepentant and settled in their stubborn hardened rebellious lifestyle and as the scriptures declares, JUDGMENT STARTS IN THE HOUSE OF GOD.
Ezekiel 6 – 9 was given and only those marked by the Father shall escape.
God gave me the following scripture about the judgment that starts with the lukewarm church which is also known as Spiritual Jerusalem.
a feeling of smug or uncritical satisfaction with oneself or one’s achievements.

Zephaniah 1:12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and punish the men that are settled in their *complacency* that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will He do evil.
13 Therefore their goods shall become booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink their wine.
14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hastens quickly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: there the mighty man shall cry out bitterly.
15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of ruin and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fortified cities, and against the high towers.
17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh like refuse.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy: for He shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
People are quick to say that God did not appoint us to wrath but neglect to realise that Jesus warned in Luke 21:36 that we must pray that we shall be counted worthy to escape the judgements of God that are coming upon all rebellion and disobedience.
He said those who does not follow Him in obedience unto the death of self and their former sinful way of life on the road of the cross is not worthy of Him.
1 Be you therefore followers of God, as dear children;
2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling fragrance.
3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becomes saints;
4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not fitting: but rather giving of thanks.
5 For this you know, that no fornicator, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
7 Be not therefore partakers with them.
8 For you were once darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
Read also Colossians 3:5 – 10
Romans 2:4 – 11
1 Corinthians 6:9 – 20.
Hebrews 10:26 – 31.
It’s the obedient humble bride of Christ who are accounted worthy to escape the tribulation judgments because in humility they follow the Lord wherever He leads, not just to the cross unto salvation but also through the cross in obedience unto the death of self and their former way of life. God shall use them to do a mighty work within the earth before the end comes.
WE ARE CALLED TO OVERCOME !
I say to you that everyone who are complacent and asleep spiritually will be awaken and shaken by the judgments of God with an effort to bring them to repentance. Many who still dwell in the valley of decision will be confronted with the truth one last time to make their final choice. The great commission shall be fulfilled through God’s end-time army of soulwinning champions during the tribulation judgments.
THE TRIBULATION IS TO AWAKEN THE NATIONS TO REPENTANCE BEFORE THE VIALS OF GOD’S WRATH IS POURED OUT ON THIS EARTH. THE TRIBULATION SHAKINGS ARE ALL PART OF THE TRUMPET REDEMPTIVE JUDGMENTS OF GOD.
Zephaniah 1:16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fortified cities, and against the high towers.
1 Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD comes, for it is near at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great and strong people; there has not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, through the years of many generations.
3 A fire devours before them; and behind them a flame burns: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be in great pain: all faces are drained of color.
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march each one on his way, and they shall not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one jostle another; they shall walk each one in his path: and when they lunge between the swords, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executes his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can endure it?
12 Therefore also now, says the LORD, turn you even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And tear your hearts, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and relents from sending calamity.
A TIME OF WAR, TRIBULATION, HARVEST AND GREAT AWAKENING. NOTICE THAT THE TIME OF THE GENTILES IS NOT YET COMPLETED UNTIL SCRIPTURE IS FULFILLED. WE ARE THE GENTILE NATIONS AND GOD IS TALKING TO US THAT WE MUST WAKE UP AND PREPARE SPIRITUALLY TO DO WARFARE DURING THE TIME OF HARVEST AND JUDGMENT.
Jehoshaphat means “YAHWEH has judged” in Hebrew. It refers to the valley of judgment and decision.
Joel 3:9 Proclaim you this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all you nations, and gather yourselves together round about: there cause your mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
12 Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the nations round about.
13 Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
17 So shall you know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
Notice that Jerusalem shall be purified by the Spirit of burning and the precious fruit, which is reaped by those who have escaped, are the souls of the final harvest that must come in through the latter rains.
First the harvest shall be gathered then the Lord shall come. God tells us in scripture to be patient.
James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until he receives the early and latter rain.
8 Be also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws near.
Same as in Joel 3:13 Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
Isaiah 4:2 In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and splendid for them that have escaped of Israel.
3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even everyone that is recorded among the living in Jerusalem:
4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from its midst by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a covering.
6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain.
GOD WILL BE A REFUGE FOR HIS PEOPLE.
The following prophecy was given through J Leland Earls.
The final letter in the revelation that was given to John was to the church of the Laodiceans. To this church did I write: ‘These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of My mouth.’ (Rev. 3:14-15).
The church of the Laodiceans portrays the final era of the Christian dispensation. It represents the prevailing conditions extant in the organized church world as this age draws to a close. Insipid lukewarmness is the chief characteristic.
Because of this I have spewed the entire organized church out of My mouth, both Catholic and Protestant. This does not mean I have repudiated those individuals who truly believe in Me and are yet in the organized systems. But before the end comes, they must hear My call: ‘come out of her, My people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.’ (Rev. 18:4).
I am presented in this letter as the ‘faithful and true witness’ in contrast to the unfaithfulness and distorted witness of the Laodicean church. I am also presented as ‘the beginning of the creation of God’ because of the inception of the new thing that I will do as the Laodicean era comes to a close.
I will raise up a mighty witness in the remnant that is being called out of the Babylonish church systems, and they shall manifest the power and glory of that new creation which is coming forth through My resurrection life.
Since I am the firstborn among many brethren, there shall be many who will come to that measure of maturity which will enable me to unveil them as the sons of God, giving them immortality for their physical bodies. (Rom. 8:19, 29). Some will put on the glory of the celestial as their bodies are changed into the likeness of My glorious body (Phil .3:21); and others will manifest sonship on the terrestrial plane, having their bodies changed from corruptible to incorruptible. (I Cor. 15:40-41, 53-54).
Now notice a further characteristic of the Laodicean period. ‘Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye-salve, that you may see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.’ (Rev. 3:-1-7-19).
A contributing factor to the spiritual lukewarmness of the present day church world is the prosperity which abounds in most western nations. A feeling of smug complacency has blinded the churches to their spiritual poverty and their desperate need. Clothed with their own self-righteousness, they know not their nakedness in My sight.
Therefore I have raised up messengers to expose and rebuke the carnality, apostasy and ineptness of the spiritually destitute churches. I call for repentance!
I am moving in My providence to bring chastening through adverse conditions in civil life and international affairs.
Conditions will become so severe that the people of the predominantly Christian nations will either repent or perish. It is because of My great love for those who know not their folly and the consequences thereof that I rebuke and chasten.
I must awaken those who are asleep and destined for destruction. Otherwise there would be no hope.
There is a great need now for the three things which I offer. The first is gold tried in the fire. Gold is a symbol of true spiritual character, brought about by the working of My Spirit and forged in the crucible of testing experiences.
I must have a people who are completely receptive to My workings in their inner being and thoroughly purged from the dross of their own ways.
The second is white raiment. This is symbolic of that righteousness and purity which only I can impart. Only those who are fully clothed with this raiment can enter into the end-time ministry of that spiritual Body which I am raising up.
The third is eye-salve to anoint thine eyes. Only the revelation of My Spirit can cause you to see the mighty truths which I would have you know in this hour. Since I counsel you to ‘buy’ of Me, there is a price which must be paid. The price is simply the willingness to let me have your life to do with it as I please.
Only as there is complete yielding and obedience, can I be the means of bringing forth in your life pure gold, impart to you white raiment, and anoint your eyes to see My truth. ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.’ (Rev. 3:20).
My people, I long to have that intimate communion with you which is described in these words. But so few want to invite Me in to take complete control of their lives. This is the day that I am offering to make myself real to a people as never before in history.
Will you not open your heart and let Me have My way in you?
I am ready to show myself strong on your behalf. No other generation has had as great an opportunity as I am offering to you in this hour. I stand at the door and knock; the choice is yours.
And now for the final promise to the overcomers in these seven letters. ‘To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.’ (Rev. 3:21).
Even though I was the very Son of the Highest, functioning on the plane of Deity, I emptied myself and took on the form of man, that I might overcome as a man. Then was I highly exalted and given a place of rulership on the throne of My Father.
This is the pattern for those who love Me and let me bring them into an overcoming experience, rising above the spiritual level of most Christians.
To ‘overcome’ means to rise above, to come up over to a higher spiritual plane. It comes only through greater yielding and submission to my will.
The time is coming soon when I will sit on the throne of My glory in the heavenly Kingdom which will be set up in the realms surrounding the earth. Then shall the overcomers of all the church eras be exalted to sit on that throne with Me. They shall then be kings and priests to rule with Me over the earth. (Rev. 1:6, 5:10, 20:4). Truly this is the PRIZE of the high calling; it is both joint heirship on the plane of glorified life, and joint rulership with Me in My Kingdom.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.
