June 27

Abba Father…the leaders of our Nation have rejected Your reproof and have rejected Your counsel continually throughout the years.  Though You showed mercy to the wicked… even so, they still did not learn righteousness.  Even in a land of uprightness, they keep on doing more and more evil, and regarded not the Majesty of the Lord. [Isa 26:10]  They thought their own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding was superior to Yours; they thought they were so wise in their own eyes.
And so now in Your most severe judgment: “Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat!  Those whom God is determined to destroy, He first infatuates.”  You have stricken the minds of our Nation’s leaders with idiocy, so that professing to be wise, they have become fools…utter morons.  You have caused their thinking to become utterly confused, so that they actually believe they are acting in wisdom while they are in reality literally destroying the Nation.  You have caused the Nation’s leaders to engage in self-destruction; we are destroying our own selves…just as You caused the Midianites to fight against and kill one another before Gideon.  We are now watching it unfold as it plays out day after day before our very eyes!  The Lord will cause you to lose your mind in idiocy, and strike you with wild and helpless fear and panic; He will make you become blind and cause your minds and hearts to be confused.  For My decision and determination and right it is to gather the nations together, to assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them My indignation, even all the heat of My fierce anger; for in that day all the Earth shall be consumed with the fire of My jealous anger! [Deut 28:28; Zeph 3:8]  

I, and I alone, am God; there is no God besides Me.  I put to death and I bring to life, I wound and I heal, and no one can deliver out of My hand.  As surely as I am the Living God, I raise My hand to Heaven and I vow: when I sharpen My flashing sword and begin to carry out justice, I will take vengeance on My adversaries and repay those who reject Me.  My arrows will drip with their blood, and My sword shall devour their flesh…the blood of both the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders.  So do not pray for this people nor offer any plea or petition for them; do not plead with Me, for I will not listen to you. [Deut 32:39-42; Jer 7:16]

Revelation 5:1-14

Then I saw in the right hand of Him Who sat on the Throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals…the title-deeds to God’s wonderfully created Earth that had been forfeited and mortgaged to Satan and his seed, detailing within the required price and particulars for the redemption of that inheritance thus forfeited and disponed away by Adam’s sin.  And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?”  But no one in Heaven or on Earth or under the Earth could satisfy the requirements to open the scroll or even look inside it.  I wept and wept with uncontrollable grief because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside…that all the promises of the prophets, and all the hopes of the saints, and all the pre-intimations of a redeemed world, and the very redemption of the purchased possession, was thus to end in abject failure!  Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep!  See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed over sin and deathHe has paid the redemption price of the forfeited inheritance, and thus He is the true Go’el (OT:1350) Who is able to open the scroll and break forever its debarring seven seals.”

6Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, yet alive forever and ever, standing in the center of the Throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders.  He overcame by His perfect obedience unto death, and paid the price of redemption in His meek sufferings, bearing our sins in His own body and vanquishing all legal disabilities by His atoning Blood, and thereby is adjudged worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals.  He had seven horns…bespeaking His Sovereign Power, and majesty, and invincible strength…and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God in His all-penetrating fullness of intellectual and spiritual power sent out into all the Earth.  He came and took the scroll from the right hand of Him Who sat on the Throne…that momentous act for which all Creation has ever so patiently waited for and longed for…the lifting of the title-deeds of the alienated inheritance…the legal act of repossession of all that was lost in Adam, paid for by the Blood and tears of the Son of God!  He was thereby now assuming His role and was now to begin His reign on Earth as the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.  The appointed time had now come for the rightful owner of the estate to enforce the indignation of that Throne against all who stand in rebellion against it, preparations having already been made for the sending forth in succession with the breaking of each seal a strong Destroyer in fierce assault upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth!  The universe is stricken with awe, and Heaven looks on in solemn silence as that act of taking possession of the scroll is being performed; and when He had taken it, there went an ineffable thrill through the universal heart of all Creation, and the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down in adoring wonder and joy before the Lamb!  Each one had a harp in remembrance of what all His holy prophets have ever prophesied and sung about concerning the fulfillment of God’s promised event, and they were holding golden bowls full of sweet incense before God and before the Lamb, which are the, until now, unanswered volumes and oceans of prayers of the saints that have ever entreated their God that “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.”  And they sang a new song…a song which had never before been sung:

“You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals,
because You were slain, and with Your Blood
You purchased men…even us…for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation!
You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
and they, whom we are privileged to represent,
will now begin our promised reign on the Earth forever and ever!”

11Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand!  They encircled the Throne and the living creatures and the elders.  In a loud voice echoing through the depths of space, they sang:

“Worthy is the Lamb, Who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”

13Then wider and still wider spread the sympathetic response of adoring rapture, as I heard every creature in Heaven and on Earth and under the Earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:

“To Him Who sits on the Throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”
The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped!  

Friends, brothers and sisters…

There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell.  You must be a born-again child of God.  I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom.  I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]

 If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”

He walks with me and He talks with me:
