Have you ever had one of those “NOW” moments?
As I was meditating and praying, suddenly I was there in that exact moment of time and the scripture came to light and I heard the Holy Spirit very clear…
“And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold, ” Matthew 24:10-12 KJV.
Iniquity means: immorality, grossly unfair behavior.
Then as I was meditating on that, I had a vision of a heart that is bitter and it looked like flesh when it gets a really bad, hard scar on it with no blood flow to it.
I heard that every touch of a bitter seed hardens the heart further.
“Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine heart,” Jeremiah 4:18 KJV.
Then I heard the Holy Spirit say this,
“Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled,” Hebrews 12:15 KJV.
The Holy Spirit said that bitterness is running rampant through the goats and sheep as a disease and the very seeds and roots of bitterness are infecting many and defiles not only themselves, but anyone around them could be susceptible to that spreading cancer and spiritual death.
Beloved, if you see this happening around you, pray for their eternal soul to be delivered and healed, because a hard heart can kill you.
Pharaoh heart was hardened and Abigail’s husband heart was turned to stone, (Exodus 7:13).
“But it came to pass in the morning, when the wine was gone out of Nabal, and his wife had told him these things, that his heart died within him, and he became as a stone. And it came to pass about ten days after, that the LORD smote Nabal, that he died,” 1 Samuel 25:37-38 KJV.
I feel an urgency that if you know people like these pray for them that God would show mercy for their soul.
We must also pray and also come against the spirit of Leviathan.
“His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come be tween them. They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.
By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone,” Job 41:15-24 KJV.
We must be mindful and prayerful beloved of God!
These are very serious times, unlike we have ever witnessed before.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
