1. God is impartial, He JUDGES His own first, that His RIGHTEOUSNESS should be impeccable. “… Of a truth I perceive that GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS: …” [Acts 10:34-35] God brought Israel out of Egypt, made a COVENANT with them and walked them through the wilderness “And did all drink the same SPIRITUAL DRINK: for they drank of that SPIRITUAL ROCK that followed them: and that ROCK WAS CHRIST” [1 Corinthians 10:4] He led them to enforce His JUDGMENT on the Canaanites and inherit the Promised Land but He first JUDGED, “But with many of them GOD WAS NOT WELL PLEASED: for they were OVERTHROWN IN THE WILDERNESS. Now these things were our EXAMPLES, to the intent we should NOT LUST AFTER EVIL THINGS, as they also lusted” [1 Corinthians 10:5-6] We are the Israel of God in Jesus Christ, established in HOPE of what God has prepared for them that LOVE him [1 Corinthians 2:9] We also are JUDGED by God with the same SEVERITY, “Behold therefore the GOODNESS and SEVERITY of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off” [Romans 11:22] Be not deceived, JUDGMENT has commenced in the Church, “For the TIME IS COME that JUDGMENT must BEGIN at the HOUSE OF GOD: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” [1 Peter 4:17]
2. JUDGMENT has commenced in the household of God, the first to appear are STEWARDS who abused His TALENTS and His sanction is swift, “TAKE therefore the TALENT FROM HIM, and give it unto him which hath ten talents” [Matthew 25:28] God SEES what know man may behold; He found many GUILTY who traded with His NAME for selfish GAIN, retrieved His SPIRIT and turned them over to LYING SPIRITS “Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a LYING SPIRIT IN THE MOUTH OF ALL THESE THY PROPHETS, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee” [1 Kings 22:23] Men who were once esteemed as mouthpiece of God are now clothed in opprobrium and demystified by pronouncements which fail to come to pass. Many who once reflected the glory of TRUTH are backslidden into corruption as a dog to his vomit, “For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The DOG IS TURNED TO HIS OWN VOMIT again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire” [2 Peter 2:21-22] Surely, God is merciful, because they did not REPENT but justify themselves in accolades of men and rituals of religion, He released them from restraint, “… God gave them over to a REPROBATE MIND, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, ...” [Romans 1:28] How are the mighty fallen [2 Samuel 1:27]
3. God has weighed this generation in the balance and found not a few GUILTY who make brisk business with His NAME, selling platitudes of FALSE PROSPERITY and those who buy from them, “And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should BELIEVE A LIE: That they all might be DAMNED WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH, but had PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS” [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12] STRONG DELUSION is the reason PULPITS are overtaken by DECEPTION and PEWS overwhelmed with SELF-DECEPTION. Our Churches are grown very rich in earthly goods but impoverished in heavenly treasures and say, “… I am RICH, and INCREASED WITH GOODS, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art WRETCHED, and MISERABLE, and POOR, and BLIND, and NAKED” [Revelation 3:17] Those who equate PROSPERITY with MATERIAL GAIN suffer from STRONG DELUSION, pollute the Church with heresy and lead many astray with “Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS: from such WITHDRAW THYSELF. But GODLINESS with CONTENTMENT is GREAT GAIN” [1 Timothy 6:5-6] The growing army of heretical Preachers and fanatical followers is JUDGMENT, separating WHEAT from CHAFF, “For there must be also HERESIES among you, that they WHICH ARE APPROVED MAY BE MADE MANIFEST among you” [1 Corinthians 11:19] God’s sentence of STRONG DELUSION had been long in coming, it is here and His JUDGMENT is final.
4. JUDGMENT is given to gather TARES“… GATHER YE TOGETHER FIRST TARES, and BIND them IN BUNDLES TO BURN them: but gather the WHEAT into my BARN” [Matthew 11:30] TARES, children of DISOBEDIENCE, are gathered first that the OBEDIENT might be made manifest, “That he might present it to himself a GLORIOUS CHURCH, NOT HAVING SPOT or WRINKLE, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish” [Ephesians 5:27] TARES are “FALLING AWAY” into ECUMENICAL BUNDLES in fulfilment of prophecy and cue for the appearance of the MAN OF SIN, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a FALLING AWAY first, and that MAN OF SIN be revealed, the son of perdition” [2 Thessalonians 2:3] Ongoing alignment and realignment of TARES and diverse religions in one global INTER-FAITH ASSEMBLY is prelude to global worship of the EVIL ONE, as it is written:: “… and all the WORLD WONDERED AFTER THE BEAST. … And they WORSHIPPED the DRAGON which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” [Revelation 133-:4] Beloved, let not your heart be troubled or distracted by "THESE THINGS ", we shall be translated before the DRAGON is enthroned on earth. Hold tight to the TRUTH and LOOK UP, “And when THESE THINGS begin to COME TO PASS, then LOOK UP, and lift up your heads; for your REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH” [Luke 21:28]
