On Aug. 27, 2020 I received a Word from the Lord:
“There’s a message that’s burning deep into my heart, says the Lord. I want to raise up Canada to its rightful place. I looked here and there amongst my people looking for sincere hearts, pure hearts, for people that revere me. I have found many obedient children who truly have a heart for my Word. But, as I focused in closer I saw others who have defiled their relationship with me, who have allowed sin into their lives, who have opened up the door to corruption, to immorality, to greed. Return to your 1st love, my children. I stand at the door of your heart. If you open, I will come in and dwell with you and you with me. I want to make your name great but I require reverence, holiness, purity and devotion. I want you to receive the crown of life and be able to eat from the tree of life. Return to me, my children, before calamities are released over the land, because calamities will come, return to me. I have always loved you and my desire is to dwell with my people. Repent at once and turn from your wickedness or else I shall come and remove my lampstand from its place.”
The Lord came to me in the middle of the night on Sept.3 with the words, ‘Poisoned water, poisoned water’. I woke in the morning to investigate the Scripture. Although I knew of the passage found in Rev.8 regarding Wormwood, the Holy Spirit convicted me to look into the Old Testament. As I researched the Scripture the Lord highlighted 3 distinctive passages found in Jeremiah chapters 8,9 and 23. I encourage you to read through them. I will highlight some key verses here.
Jer.8:5-7 Why then have these people turned away? Why does Jerusalem always turn away? They cling to deceit; they refuse to return. I have listened attentively, but they do not say what is right. No one repents of his wickedness, saying, “What have I done?” Each pursues his own course like a horse charging into battle. EVEN THE STORK IN THE SKY KNOWS HER APPOINTED SEASONS, AND THE DOVE, THE SWIFT AND THE THRUSH OBSERVE THE TIME OF THEIR MIGRATION. BUT MY PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE LORD.
Verse 9: The wise will be put to shame; they will be dismayed and trapped. Since they have rejected the word of the Lord, what kind of wisdom do they have?
Verse 11: THEY DRESS THE WOUND OF MY PEOPLE AS THOUGH IT WERE NOT SERIOUS. “PEACE, PEACE,” THEY SAY, WHEN THERE IS NO PEACE.
Verse 13-15:” ‘I will take away their harvest, declares the Lord. There will be no grapes on the vine. There will be no figs on the tree, and their leaves will wither. What I have given them will be taken from them.’“ “Why are we sitting here? Gather together! Let us flee to the fortified cities and perish there! For the Lord our God has doomed us to perish and given us poisoned water to drink, because we have sinned against him. We hoped for peace but no good has come, for a time of healing but there was only terror.”
Jer. 9:3 “They make ready their tongue like a bow, to shoot lies; it is not by truth that they triumph in the land. They go from one sin to another; they do not acknowledge me,” declares the Lord.
Verse 7-8a: Therefore this is what the Lord Almighty says: “See, I will refine them and test them, for what else can I do because of the sin of my people? Their tongue is a deadly arrow; it speaks with deceit”.
Jer.9:9 “Should I not punish them for this?” declares the Lord. “Should I not avenge myself on such a nation as this?”
Verse 13-15: The Lord said, “It is because they have forsaken my law, which I set before them; they have not obeyed me or followed my law. Instead, they have followed the stubbornness of their heart; they have followed the Baals, as their fathers taught them.” Therefore, this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ”See, I will make this people eat bitter food and drink poisoned water”.
Verses 23-25a: This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understand and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord. “The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will punish all who are circumcised only in the flesh.“
Jer. 23:10-11 The land is full of adulterers; because of the curse the land lies parched and the pastures in the desert are withered. The prophets follow an evil course and use their power unjustly. “Both prophet and priest are godless; even in my temple I find their wickedness,” declares the Lord.
Verse 15-20: Therefore, this is what the Lord Almighty says concerning the prophets: “I will make them eat bitter food and drink poisoned water, because from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has spread throughout the land.” This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes.
They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. They keep saying to those who despise me, ‘The Lord says: You will have peace.’ And to all who follow the stubbornness of their hearts they say, ‘No harm will come to you.’ But which of them has stood in the council of the Lord to see or to hear his word: Who has listened and heard his word? See, the storm of the Lord will burst out in wrath, a whirlwind swirling down on the heads of the wicked. The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart.”
Verse 22: BUT IF THEY HAD STOOD IN MY COUNCIL, THEY WOULD HAVE PROCLAIMED MY WORDS TO MY PEOPLE AND WOULD HAVE TURNED THEM FROM THEIR EVIL WAYS AND FROM THEIR EVIL DEEDS.
Matthew 15:8, ‘THESE PEOPLE HONOUR ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEARTS ARE FAR FROM ME’.
Then Isaiah 30:9-11 “These are rebellious people, deceitful children, children unwilling to listen to the Lord’s instruction. They say to the seers, ‘See no more visions!’ and to the prophets, ‘Give us no more visions of what is right! Tell us pleasant things, prophesy illusions. Leave this way, get off this path, and stop confronting us with the Holy One of Israel!’ “
The Lord told me that there are people who will tell themselves that this word is not for them, that their hearts are right with God, that they have been walking with the Lord since childhood but they are deceiving themselves. God is calling His people to a deeper place with Him. He said they have watered down their faith. All He wants is for His people to come to Him, to draw nearer His heart. But the time to draw closer is NOW!
The Lord is displeased with the way churches have either shut down or adopted government dictated rules, contrary to what He would have advised in His council. This is premium time for the body of Christ to be united in prayer and intercession for our nation and around the world. As we’re at the door of the Great Tribulation, the body of Christ needs to be vigilant to discern the times and seasons, just like the stork in Jer. 8:7. The Lord has been wanting His church to get on their knees and into a deeper fellowship with the Father and learn His true heart. Instead, the church of God has given way to the enemy who has managed to muzzle the people of God, restrict worship, eliminate altar calls, stop hugging and human interactions, and watered-down sermons. The Lord is angry at false prophets who have not discerned the times and seasons and instead have told people not to worry, that things would return to normal, that peace is coming. I encourage you to go before the Lord while He may still be found, draw near Him, learn what is on His heart and start developing a true hunger for His Word. Ask the Lord to forgive you all your sins and to empower you with His Holy Spirit.
I am sorry if this word may be harsh for some, but I have been called to be the Lord’s mouthpiece. My prayer is that you will heed to His word. With much love ❤
Isaiah 55:6 Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
