This is a word that came to me this morning as I was meditating on God’s plans for Sue and I, along with the desperateness of this drought .
You ask me and I tell you. My fury burns and my fire rages against this nation. It’s people are far from me, holding a form of religion but denying my sovereignty, and even that is being moved to a secret place. A nation that hides my very name and erases the memory of my name. But this will be no more. No more will the world exalt in it’s highest towers. No more will this world exalt in it’s accomplishments. Nothing that has or will be is done without me. No more, no more, no more.
My fire burns and my fury rages and I will visit on this land unquenchable fire. Such fire that only by my hand will it be extinguished. The fires will continue, the land, parched and dry will be vanquished. This nation will print and print and print money but it will burn uselessly, the effort will leave even more in disparity. I call this land to repentance and still it doesn’t listen.
This disaster is coming and has come, the very grass burns. I have told you to prepare, prepare, prepare. You, who’s hearts are my hearts, are ready and I will move. To you who have not, you seek but have not listened, act now. As my action moves, some of you I will move. To some I have kept you in place and will keep you to minister there, up to and including your lives.
My hand is acting and will be swift. It will take your breath away. But know I hold you in the palm of my hand and nothing, nothing, nothing happens that I don’t ordain and what I do I do for your good. It is by my love for you that I act now.
As I looked at the current status, I noted that 55% of the country ranges from extreme dry to extreme drought. As Sue and I follow and trust God leading us to purchase a farm, many farmers are offering to sell me cattle cheap, because they can’t feed them. Yesterday,as I looked in my woods, two deer came by that I thought were adolescents, but they were, in fact, dramatically emaciated. We will soon see cheap beef at the stores, buy it and freeze it if you can, even better dry it and cure it. Soon, the tide will turn and beef will be unavailable without a price. Rev 6:6 comes to mind: “Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart[a] of wheat for a day’s wages,[b] and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages,[c] and do not damage the oil and the wine!””
This is a time where our haughtiness is exposed. This has hardly been three months and we cry out yet Sue mentioned how awful it was in Elijah’s time when no rain fell for almost three years. God help us.
This is a hard word and if you’re reading this it is because God sent you here, at this time, for this purpose, to give you opportunity to present yourself before Him, repent and ask His forgiveness and secure your place in His glory. God doesn’t want anyone to perish, but because He is just and holy and sovereign, HE MUST. Don’t delay, take this opportunity He has given you to come to Him…
