"If the Shoe Fits"
"A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh"
by Katie Stewart
Dear "If the Shoe Fits",
'm not getting through to you. You're dull of hearing. You are the blind, leading the blind. You really have lost your First Love. I wish I could get you to see that, but I can't. You're hard-hearted and self-deceived. But He loves you, and so I will try one more time.
The reason I know you do not love the LORD is because you do not love His Word - and the Word is GOD. I will try to demonstrate.
You are a bitter person, and you have no patience.The trying of your faith is supposed to work patience, but because your "faith" does not work by love, you do not have real faith to be tried for patience. That's why you don't have patience! Your only Hope is to LOVE The WORD. If you had the patience to minister His Word, then you would minister His Word. You do show me your "faith" by your work.
Your aversion to use the Word describes to me, a person who does not live by every Word that proceeds out of GOD's mouth. You have no zeal for Him. You won't talk Him. You won't think Him. You won't conform to Him. I have tried to fellowship with you, around, and in Him, and you won't. You simply won't do it! You refuse to speak the Word with me! I know you are not "Scriptuallly illiterate", and that's where your sin lies. You know better! "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin" (James 4:17 ).
Please, ask yourself, "Why don't I minister the Word?" The only answer is that you don't have a heart for it. "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh" (Luke 6:45). Your opinion, while highly treasured in your own heart, is an evil replacement for, "what saith the Scripture?" (Romans 4:3). Please try to see, that Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness. Your righteousness, my righteousness, even Abraham's righteousness, is soley based on believing what GOD said !! Your opinion must be supported by "what saith the Scripture?", or else it's evil speaking. You have replaced His Word with your own. And unless you carefully examine yourself, and repent, this self-deception will cause the LORD of glory to judge you. Hebrews 10:37 "For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry."
Why don't you minister the Word? "Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine" (2 Timothy 4:2). "WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE." Can you hear Him? You're supposed to minister the Word with patience. Please, hear what the Spirit sayeth to you, a professed member of His Church. You know better. I remember you when you did minister the Word, instantly, in any time or season. You were young in the LORD, but you loved Him, and you enjoyed sharing the Word. It was your Manna. You are so hard you can't see the difference between then, and now.
on't you realize that the LORD JESUS is all but back to gather His people, and that we have been enjoined to exhort one another, and so much the more, as we see the day approaching? What must GOD do to you to cause your dry bones to rise up again? If we will not judge ourselves we shall be judged. If you believe as strongly that the LORD will deliver His Church from the wrath to come in the 70th week of Daniel, as you do in living by every Word that proceeds out of His mouth, then you are doomed to experience GOD's judgment in the Tribulation week. I believe this completely, and it causes me much pain for you. Faith without works is dead, dead, dead. Wisdom cries to you. Listen to what your future holds, depending on your decision right now:
"20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: 21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, 22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? 23 Turn you at My reproof: behold, I will pour out my Spirit unto you, I will make known My Words unto you. 24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out My hand, and no man regarded; 25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; 27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. 28 Then shall they call upon Me, but I will not answer; they shall seek Me early, but they shall not find Me: 29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: 30 They would none of My counsel: they despised all My reproof. 31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. 32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. 33 But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil."
I feel I've said all I can. To go on is unnecessary. You will either listen, or you won't. But remember, Philadelphia was only promised deliverance from "the hour of temptation" IF they had kept the Word of His patience. You have no patience for His Word. I say this with as much love as I can. I plead with you, with all my heart.
2 Timothy 2:25,26, "In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the Truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will."
Beware. Your time is very short. The LORD cometh. He is at the door. Even so LORD, come quickly. Are you listening?
2 Corinthians 6:2, "For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of Salvation." Isaiah 55:6, "Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near:" Please. Please. Seek Him now, right now! Tell Him you've lost your love, but you never will again. Remember, Genesis 6:3, "the LORD said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man." He is no fool. He will not be mocked.
P.S. If, by the time you read this, you have missed, what's commonly called, the Rapture, or the First "Come Up Hither" (Revelation 4:1), there is also a second "Come Up Hither" (Revelation 11:12). It's not quite yet too late to repent. There is still a little time. Don't make this mistake (sin) twice.
John 9:39 "And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind."
