America: A Festering Wound

Leave a comment


In response to America Has Become A Festering Wound

Hi Glynda,

Thank you for your faithfulness. These words came to me in response for your readers, what a powerful admonition.

It is very true, the challenge of a Christian today can be getting locked up in a mental institution. And that’s the catch, are you qualified to being locked up and put away. For decades, one of the most powerful groups in the world has determined that if you really believe in God, if you really believe He answers prayer, if you really believe that He performs miracles, if you really believe He talks to you and answers your questions then you are psychotically delusional and a potential harm to yourself and those around you, needing to be locked away for your protection and the protection of those around you. Are you up to that challenge?

While praying about this Word, God reminded me of what I’ve ministered previously and this Word confirms that Word He’d given me. Preparation is valid, but what preparation? God has been admonishing us to be prepared, literally crying out to us to listen. But do we listen? Are we hearing what He’s saying? God’s judgement is coming and He doesn’t want us to be a part of it. It’s time to let loose of that which continues to bind us to the festering wound that is America. The reference isn’t to be taken lightly. A smelly, festering wound, oozing with puss and liquid, and flies upon it. Yet you still attach yourself to it. That is how God sees it and He wants your eyes opened.

A number of you have asked, “ but what should I buy, what should I store up?” totally missing what God was saying. I’m reminded of Jesus parable of the rich fool, in Luke 12:

18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’
20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’
21 “This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.”

It’s the same thing, if God is telling you to prepare, yet hasn’t specified “items” He’s telling you, still, that you have life changes to make in preparation. You’re to store away His word, practice hearing His Spirit. Don’t be worried yet about “things”. He says:

“Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

If you’re busying yourself by setting up stores and provisions yet neglecting the real meat and potatoes of a real relationship with God, you are lost and He is warning you:

“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

A friend shared with me something that was told her. He asked, “How much have you eaten?” , huh? Then he told her to take her closed Bible and look at the binding. He said, “ see those cracks? That is where you’ve eaten the Word and the Word is in you, but do you see where it’s smooth? That is the Word that is not inside you.”. How much of God’s Word have you eaten? How much is living in you? How much treasure do you own?

So what of this Word of God spoken through Glynda? Read it over and over and again until the tears flow. You should be wanting and waiting to hear, “ well done, good and faithful servant”. Read, pray, listen and obey. If God tells you specifically to get “things” or do “things” then by all means do it, He will provide. If He tells you, “Watch and wait” then do it, that is His command and anything else will be fruitless.

“Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36 like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. 38 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night. 39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

41 Peter asked, “Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?”
42 The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? 43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. 44 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 45 But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk. 46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.
47 “That servant who knows his master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

It doesn’t get any clearer than this…

My life experiences are in blue collar and white collar (engineering) employment, political office, lay ministries, national competition in track and cross country and most importantly marriage and raising a family. God has given me a unique set of skills and character to serve Him and a passion for doing it.
