“One post shall run to meet another, and one messenger to meet another, to shew the king of Babylon that his city is taken at one end. And that the passages are stopped, and the reeds they have burned with fire, and the men of war are affrighted. For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon is like a threshingfloor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come.” Jeremiah 51:31-33.
“Therefore I am full of the fury of the Lord; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together.” Jeremiah 6:11.
“And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”
“And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.” Revelation 14:15, 18.
They who at this particular juncture are being brought to shore in the gospel net, have been fully prepared and brought to this very place of either accepting or rejecting their time of visitation, and upon meeting us will now be able to say to us (in the words of C. S. Lewis) “one by one, not ‘Who are you?’ but ‘So it was you all the time.’” Indeed, it is impossible that God’s great net bring to the shore of preliminary judgment one single item at an inopportune time. Nay, the event is so timely, that whether they are thrown away or gathered into vessels, it is a reflection entirely of the state of the heart and never of the premature arrival of those who “sat down,” or of an untimely catch in the gospel net. In this gathering, there exist not vessels of waiting, but only vessels for the good–the rest are cast away. In this harvest, there is no probationary storage, but only a barn for the wheat–all chaffy refuse is bound and thrown into the furnace.
It is the spirit of compromise that, under the disguise of “godly wisdom,” would have us delay, decline, and postpone the full outpouring of the Restoration message until certain “things” are established. Yet, this is that wisdom from beneath, that springs up quickly in the fertile, thorn-producing soil of Protestantism, from which that earthy beast arose. These are they who join with Amaziah, the compromising priest of Bethel, who said of the prophet Amos that “The land is not able to bear all his words.” Amos 7:10.
The Holy Ghost can never be caught off guard by the premature preaching of His own message. The spirit of prophecy did not signify in the bosoms of the ancient prophets “what manner of time,” only to allow the fulfillment to happen in anything other than perfect prophetic timing. If we then, truly believe that we live in the time of the pouring out of the vials, we must also believe that the spiritual atmosphere is primed and ready. Indeed, the Alpha and Omega has timed the last and greatest earthquake so as to strike at the exact, appointed time.
If we pattern our preaching and teaching after what we feel the people wish to hear, we have become slaves to manrule already. We do not judge our message, or our methods, according to opinions, comments, likes, dislikes, thumbs up, thumbs down, emoji’s, number of subscribers, number of views, number of shares, or any other “wave of the sea” reaction. “New people” does not equal a new message. “New people” is simply the call for the re-preaching of the old message.
Our gospel has no need of endorsement by celebrities, dignitaries, politicians, or men in high places. We require not, neither do we seek, the support of the system’s “conservative” platforms for our message to take effect in the world. We are our own platform, endorsed by the entire prophetic record, judged only by the twenty-four elders, and validated by the spirit of Prophecy itself.
Be glad, end-time angels! To you it is given to dispense the now-filled-up measure of the wrath of God; not a trickling nor a splashing, not in half doses or one-third applications, but an emptying out of the fullness of the wrath of God upon the earth. Rejoice, ye holy apostles! You shall be avenged, for the full blast of heaven’s armoury will now be unleashed.
