* The entire life and ministry of My faithful and obedient [holy] ones is calculated to "offend" all that which is apart from Me and, at the same time, it is also "calculated" to bless greatly [edify and empower] all those who are truly seeking Me - those who love Me with all of their heart.
* There are those who will be able to "relate" to your words and your actions, but there will always be those who - because of an allegiance to "fleshly [unrighteous] motives" - accuse and condemn and criticize the things that I have called you to do in My Name. Indeed, every word that you speak, and every command that you carry out in obedience, is "calculated" by Me to offend any "ungodliness" and unrighteousness in the hearts of those who cross your path.
* The words that I shall have My holy apostles and prophets speak in this last hour are "calculated" to offend "all" ungodliness and unrighteousness. They are "calculated" to trap and ensnare any "reliance" upon a wisdom that is apart from Me; for it is only the seed of "willful rebellion" in the heart that causes anyone to align themselves with the lies of the Evil One - "even after" they have witnessed the "one true light" [revelation] that is poured forth on and through My "anointed" words!
* I have both called and prepared My holy apostles and prophets to be "revelators" of My perfect will - in any given situation that I so choose - and I have also called and prepared My holy apostles and prophets to reveal the deepest thoughts and intentions of My heart [absolute Truth] to all those who have ears to "hear"! Every word they speak to My people is "calculated" by Me to accomplish this one thing: that My people might come into the fullness of their inheritance in Christ - in order that they might "fulfill" gloriously the "ministry" that I "created" them for from before the foundations of the earth [Ephesians 2:10]!
...."For thus it stands in Scripture: Behold, I am laying in Zion a chosen (honored), precious chief Cornerstone, and he who believes in Him [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] shall never be disappointed or put to shame. [Isa. 28:16.] To you then who believe (who adhere to, trust in, and rely on Him) is the preciousness; but for those who disbelieve [it is true], The [very] Stone which the builders rejected has become the main Cornerstone, [Ps. 118:22.] And, A Stone that will cause stumbling and a Rock that will give [men] offense; they stumble because they disobey and disbelieve [God's] Word, as those [who reject Him] were destined (appointed) to do. But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God's] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. [Exod. 19:5, 6]".... 1 Peter 2:6-9 The Amplified Translation
For years many have continued to quote 1 Peter 4:17:
...."For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God [walk in faith - love - obedience]?"....
In this most critical hour, the "furnace doors" shall now be opened wide in the midst of God's people and "all" that is being [and has been] built and sustained by the "arm of the flesh" will be "exposed" by holy fire. This will in EVERY case ["without fail"] produce one of two reactions in the lives of those found in disobedience to the Will of God [the Heavenly vision and plan for this final hour]:
The first reaction will be one of a deep and thorough repentance in the heart of the one whose "deepest [true] desire" is to do "all" of the will of God for their life and ministry. Many of these ones had "allowed" themselves to be deceived by Satan through the willful retaining on their part of a ground of "self-desire" and, thus, because they had been unwilling, previously, to let go of this "ground", it ended up consuming them [the principle of "leaven"] [Galatians 5:9]. Because of these things, they ended up in the wrong position and with [in most cases] the wrong people doing and "maintaining" a work that was not of God - no matter how good it may have "looked", outwardly. In a moment of time - as the holy apostles and prophets [and, indeed, all those walking in holiness] are "released" into the midst of God's people - the light [fire] of God will reveal "all" that is needed to their heart, and they shall cry out to Him from the deepest recesses of their being, "What must I do"! and then - at all cost to themselves - they will do WHATEVER the Holy Spirit instructs them to do and God shall -- by His great and awesome power - immediately lead them and guide them to their "proper" Kingdom-position" in the Body of Christ, and they shall begin to "prosper" in ways they never thought possible. Such is the great mercy and lovingkindness of our God!
The second reaction will be one of a "continued" rebelliousness toward God's perfect plan by some. These ones will be so intent on "proving" that "their" words and actions are of God that they shall literally be "held captive" by the "spirits of self-justification and self-exaltation" to such a great degree that they will begin to act and speak in a "rampant emotionalism" [without "any" regard for the Word of God and the Father's perfect plan] against all those of their brothers and sisters in the Church who are abiding in perfect obedience [righteousness]. Those faithful ones - in their obedience to the Father and His Word [Will] - have been made "walking ultimatums" by Him before all those who are maintaining to "any" degree the desire to control their own destiny and build their "own" church ["kingdom"] and, thus, their EVERY word and action has been "calculated" by Him to offend them in their "lawlessness" [unrighteousness]. Many of these "rebellious ones" will repent after "much torment" of soul and some will not, even to the end of this dispensation [Church Age] or the remainder of their time in the earth - whichever comes first for them!
BEGIN TO FILL YOUR HEART NOW!
Our remaining time in this earth shall become so "intense" [as the Battle of the Ages rages on to its most glorious conclusion] that we, as a people, will come quickly to the place wherein we "must" be found speaking ONLY words that are in perfect accordance with God's Word [Will]. Therefore, BEGIN TO FILL YOUR HEARTS NOW! for "tomorrow" may be too late. God will not allow Satan to overcome "any" whose heart is toward Him - those whose deepest desire is to be faithful to Him. But even the best of "intentions" will not cut it in this time - for "faith" without the corresponding action [obedience - righteousness] will SURELY be exposed for what it truly is: "dead works" rooted and grounded in pride and rebellion, and "any" who willfully retain this ground shall be attacked fiercely and openly by Satan and his forces in this hour with a view to their total destruction. Have no fear! Jesus IS Lord, and the Father has made "every" provision for "every" one of His precious children to not only to rise above these "evil schemes" but also, as they do, to devastate the Evil One and his forces at "every turn"! Let us open our hearts wide to "hear" what the Father is saying to us in this time, for His "judgments" are surely overtaking both the righteous [bringing great reward] and the unrighteous [bringing great conviction] and every life, and EVERY life and ministry will surely be seen exactly for what it is - in Christ or apart from Christ.
...."According to the grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it. For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man's work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work. If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire".... 1 Corinthians 3:10-15 NASB
