Those who hear may hear only, yea, but those who hear and DO shall be blessed. There will be a dividing line between the hearers and the doers and it will be discernible, as it already has begun.
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [James1:22]
Those who hear and continue on their way, despite the call to separate themselves to Me, will not be where they are to be when chaos erupts, because they will not have received their instruction.
There has been great testing going on and many of you have been going strong through it. In your weak moments, you cried out to Me. If you have not obeyed, there will be further testing. I have been longsuffering and faithful in My warnings. Hear and do, for you know there is a cost. I have told you to come to Me and lay down your life.
Knowing this, that the trying (testing) of your faith worketh patience. [Jam1:3]
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. [1Pet4: 12,13]
A prepared warrior receives his commands (instructions) in the quiet presence of his Commander-in-chief, not amidst the noise and clamor of every day civilian life.
No man which warreth entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. [1Tim2:4]
Did Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua (all the prophets, including these) or even Y'shua (Jesus) gain their direction amidst the crowds or when busy with the affairs of life, or did their instruction come forth in times alone with Me?
To those who have listened and have been doers of My word and My commandments, I say, stay still and watch what I shall do. Your faithfulness has not been unnoticed and it has not been for nothing, for I AM a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me, hearken and obey Me.
Continue to abide and I shall continue to lead you, providing all that you need. There shall be great reward, for I have tried the reins of your heart; I have tried your faith and have found you faithful.
The purging and the purifying has been intense; yea, the testing hard, with the furnace seven times hotter. Yea, but I see the pure gold come forth, when the dross was skimmed away, for I AM the refiner. Great shall be My glory as I pour out My blessings and My glory upon the obedient.
Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that you have transgressed against the LORD thy God, and have scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and have not obeyed My voice, saith the Lord [Jer 9:13]
To those who have continued in the world, I say, what will your choice be? For great chaos is coming. Who shall you call out to then? Will you turn away from sin, including disobedience, and lay down your life, or shall you hear once again, and continue on with life as usual? A struggle is only a struggle when there is resistance on one side.
I have fairly warned, that life as you know it is about to change. Great tribulation is coming, as so many know. Tremble, if you are lukewarm or if you have been disobedient. Repent and turn to Me, then abide, for I AM faithful and true, ready to forgive the repentant. Yet, expect to go through fire and water, more trials to bring you to where you need to be.
And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the Lord of hosts [Mal3:5]
You need not fear if you have obeyed My commandments and been faithful to My word. To those who have withstood the testing, I say the rewards are about upon you. That which you have been believing for is coming, for those who abide with Me and know Me, know what to pray and know what I have said to them personally.
Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try (test) them that dwell upon the earth. [Rev 3:10]
My love is strong towards My people and numerous have been My calls to draw nearer. Stay in the Word and continue to abide, for I AM with thee to lead thee.
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shall go: I will guide thee with mine eye. [Ps 32:8]
