"I Come Quickly"

"For years you have been taught and shared the difference between the holy and the profane and exposed the hidden deceptions of Satan. I, the Lord, have sent revelation after revelation, teacher after teacher, and prophetic word after prophetic word – both individually and corporately to my church. And most of my people have listened, but not truly heard. They have heard with their ears, but not repented, and have not changed either their hearts or their ways. For the word has been accompanied by my grace. Those who heard, repented, and sought me have received a greater freedom and peace under the protection of my wings – my grace.

For those who didn't understand the message, didn't repent and didn't seek me, my grace was also evident by an often absence of recognizable and timely consequences.

But now, this is a new beginning. It is a change in the way I will give mercy and grace to my children. For there is a soon-coming time of trial and judgment and my church must be made ready. I will continue to try and prepare my church to be ready through the trials of life. However, there will now be an evidence of increased consequences to unreptented sin. More and more shall you hear the saints bewailing their trials. But, this is only the beginning if my people do not change their ways. In my mercy, the "trials" will begin as a small thing until finally the marrow of the bones shall cry out for healing. Again, this is not a prophetic warning, for that time has passed. This is an announcement of my intent. It has begun and will build throughout the year."

Truly this is a change in the way the Lord will deal with his people as he judges the church first. David used to bewail the delay in seeing wickedness brought to shame. Solomon also recognized the principle that man continued in his evil when correction was delayed. He wrote in Ecclesiastes 8:11 - Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

Is this the time that is recorded in Jesus warning to the church? In speaking to the churches in revelation Jesus warned of the consequences of abandoning our first love (Rev 2:4,5) and following the doctrines of the Nicolaitanes (Rev 2:15,16). He called for our repentance...or else! "Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly..."(Rev 2:16)

I also had the feeling that in the first half of the year a very large calamity, caused by man's hand, will impact the US through Middle Eastern conditions. The calamity itself may be at home, but more probably abroad. The tidal impact will affect the US like a small tsunami.
