DO YOU HEAR ME?

At the end of my prayer time this evening, or should I say morning since it is past midnight on June 17/2022, the Holy Spirit has impressed upon me such a heaviness. The urgency of staying focused on the Lord, repenting and getting my spiritual and physical homes ready does not let up.
When suddenly my mind is taken to a list of things, I know people normally do during the day including some completely useless and unproductive ones. While we’re in a time of such high alert to prepare ourselves spiritually, these individuals are oblivious; they have no sense of that urgency. And consequently, feel no remorse for the precious time wasted which could have been used in the presence of God, seeking Him, worshipping Him, learning from Him. I thought, ‘Wow Lord, if this makes me so sad and heavy in my Spirit, I can’t imagine how you are feeling’. Then I heard the Lord Jesus addressing this saying:
“NOTICE ALL THE THINGS MY PEOPLE SPEND TIME DOING DURING THEIR DAYS, AND HOW LITTLE TIME THEY DEVOTE TO ME. I KEEP CALLING OUT TO DRAW NEAR TO ME BUT NO ANSWER. THIS IS THE TIME TO COME AND SIT AT MY FEET, TO LEARN FROM ME, TO SEEK MY WILL AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE BUT YOU’D HAVE NO PART OF IT. EVEN WHEN I SEND TRIALS, DIFFICULTIES, AILMENTS, YOUR FEET ARE QUICK TO RUSH TO YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS, TO SEEK THE ADVICE AND OPINIONS OF OTHERS BUT YOU NEGLECT ASKING ME. I HAVE BECOME AN AFTERTHOUGHT IN YOUR MINDS.
THEN THERE ARE THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW ME YET, WHO HAVE NOT BEEN TOLD ABOUT ME AND ARE FEELING THAT VOID, THAT NEED IN THEIR LIVES TO TURN TO A DEITY. THEY HUNGER FOR ME AND MY WORD. I WILL MAKE MYSELF KNOWN TO THEM -TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SOUGHT ME.
THEY WILL PUT YOU TO SHAME.”
I looked down on my Bible and immediately received this confirmation:
Isa.65:1-7 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.
2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts; 3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick; 4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels; 5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day. 6 Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom, 7 Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the Lord, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.
Then I heard the Lord continuing in a firm tone:
“DO YOU HEAR ME? I HAVE SET OFF THE DESTROYER TO WREAK HAVOC. JUDGMENTS ARE UPON YOU, MY PEOPLE. DO YOU HEAR THE WAR BLAST? SHORTAGES, FAMINES, HUNGER. THIS WORLD WILL BECOME UNRECOGNIZABLE. YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE TO COME TO ME AND YOU CHOSE TO DENY ME. YOU ARE THOSE MY WORD REFERS TO AS ‘THOSE WHO WORSHIP ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEARTS ARE FAR FROM ME’. REMEMBER, THEREFORE, THE HEIGHT FROM WHICH YOU HAVE FALLEN. REPENT AND STOP DOING THE THINGS OF OLD. SEPARATE YOURSELF FROM THE WORLD. BE HOLY LIKE I AM HOLY. MY SERVANT ASKED ME, ‘WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO TURN THEIR HEARTS TO YOU?’ DO YOU KNOW MY ANSWER? UNTIL CITIES LIE DESOLATE AND WITHOUT INHABITANTS, ‘TIL THE STREETS BE FILLED WITH DEAD BODIES, ‘TIL THE STING OF PAIN GRIPS YOU LIKE THAT OF A WOMAN IN LABOUR. THEN YOU WILL REMEMBER THESE WORDS AND BITTER SHALL BE YOUR CRY, O ISRAEL. FOR WHEN I CALLED YOU DID NOT LISTEN.”
