The Day of the Lord
Dearest Ones, The days are growing short for the continuing of the daily messages that I promised to give you a year ago, because I'm going to speed up everything in the earth and you will have much to do. But I will be with you through my Spirit and the angels, and continue to guide and direct you and give you everything you need for guidance, instruction, and comfort. Today I want to talk to you about "the day of the Lord" as spoken of in Zephaniah 1:14 [See also Joel 1:15]. This day is the time at the close of earth's history when I will arrive in wrath against all the wickedness which sin has caused, and bring retribution against the rebellion of mankind against my law and my faithful followers. When the end comes I will have suffered with disobedience in the human race until the full fruitage of sin is seen, and there is no more hope of recovery for anyone, and no more people who are wavering in the valley of decision. At that time, the culmination of history will have come, and the purpose of the great controversy completed. Then the cup of iniquity [Jer. 25:15-17] will be full, and the numbers of the redeemed made up. Then my wrath against sin and those who have chosen it begins. [Rev. 15:1.] It is not a matter of my lack of long-suffering, but a matter of there being not even one person who desires my salvation or my grace. Therefore, I must cleanse the earth of unrighteousness and the fruits of it. [20:9, 10.] Sin is an enemy in the perfect universe which I have created, and thus must be destroyed when it has reached its zenith. [Rev. 18:1-3.] This condition has now come to pass, except for the final outpouring of my Spirit upon my sealed ones who will, in cooperation with the Holy Spirit and the angels, make the final call to the world. [18:4, 5.] Then probation will close and the end will come. But I will hide my chosen ones in the watchcare and protection of the angels who have cared for you from birth and have guided your footsteps and shielded you from a thousand dangers, all unknown to you. Never forget how much they love you, even more than a mother loves her child. They are all-powerful and they know just how to guide you through the perils of the last days. They already have their instructions from me about your care and protection until I come. So never allow yourself to succumb to worry and fear, for worry is blind and cannot foresee the future. Your future is an open book for me to see, and you will be kept in safety through the days ahead. This is why it is so important for you to be listening for my voice with instructions, and assurances of my love to guide you through each day until I come. Faith in my guidance comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of God. [Rom. 10:17.] And this is perceived so much more clearly from a cleansed mind which is free from the natural instincts of the human heart to rely upon your own ability to protect yourself. This is why you must be cleansed of the instincts and automatic responses of the natural human heart and replaced with complete faith in me and my love and care for you. Now go to the activities of your day, but ever keep in mind that I will never leave you nor forsake you and my love and care for you are as dependable and sure as my throne. Refer every thought to me, and inquire of me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things of which you know nothing [Jer. 33:3], which will amaze you and strengthen your faith. So journey with me again today in complete faith and trust, and always remember that you can call upon me at any time, because I am always just a prayer away! Lovingly, Jesus.
