There is a wind blowing and it is bringing in the rain. Will you stand O Church. Will you stand in the gap? Why do you not call out for repentance? Why do you not repent yourself? If my people, called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. But you quote this verse and take comfort in it. Yet where are the tears for the sins of the nations? Where are the tears for the homeless and abused? Where are the tears from the hearts of My own people who have OPENLY transgressed my will. Will you remain silent? Do you not see the devastation of the land? I called to Egypt to let my people go. But Pharaoh refused. I sent plagues, not one , not two, not just three but in ten ways I warned the nation to humble themselves. It was through the death of their people when they released their hold. But even then they returned to take my people back.
But I am not dealing with Egypt in this way now. I am dealing with My people. Will you, My people, humble yourselves in My sight?! Will you, MY PEOPLE, humble yourselves in My sight?! I am not calling you to make a statement. I am not calling you to give of your overflow. I am not calling you to remain silent as the tempest begins to flow. I am calling my people to stand in the gap. Why wait for the storms to hit? Seek My face now and repent and pray for the lost. I am calling you to preach the gospel of repentance to a dying and lost world. I am calling you to action before the storm comes.
Did I not send Jonah before the devastation? Did Nineveh not repent and find salvation? Do I not send My prophets before the devastation? Why would I send them after and not before? It crushes My heart to see the pain and suffering. But My Church called by My Name is content to send humanitarian aid to the wounded; yet will not speak for them to repent and avert the danger all together! I am calling to My people. REPENT. Repent and turn away from your sinful and complacent ways! I will bring judgement on the gods of this Earth. But I will be righteous as I bring judgement to My Church also.
OH Esther, Oh Esther, “Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the Jews. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” Am I not speaking to you?
How many hurricanes? How many floods? How many earthquakes and fires and rains and mudslides? How many lives must be devastated and lost before my Church will rise and stand in the gap? Don’t think to yourself, “I am safe and I am loved.” You are loved and made righteous by My blood. But if you will not do My will as you are called, will I bring you home? Will I watch as others are lost and you are silent. I am not like you. I will not remain silent.
I am calling to My Church today. I am calling to the Body of Christ. I am calling to My bride Stand up and rise. Wash off the white robes you have been given. Repent and return to your first love. Raise your voice for the lost of the world. Cry out for your nation. If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I WILL hear from heaven, WILL forgive their sin and I WILL heal their land.
You are born for such a time as this!
