Because They Have Not Harkened 

| mon, may 20, 2009 |

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and pestilence, and will make them like rotten figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil. And I will pursue them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be trouble to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and a hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations within I have driven them. Jeremiah 29:17,18

Jeremiah writes this message from Jehovah to the children of Israel, yet the Holy Spirit has directed my attention to these scriptures for a different reason.

As I read these passages of scripture I became moved to understand why such horrible things had been told by the mouth of Jeremiah, why had he warned the children of Israel as he had? In verse 19, the answer is clearly stated.

Because they have not harkened to my words, says the Lord, which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and send them; but you would not hear, says the Lord. Jeremiah 29:19

This passage of scripture clearly states, they have not harkened to my words, says the Lord...

We too in America have not harkened to the word of the Lord. This is troubling, for we too have had the prophets and watchmen of old and new, sent by the Lord to speak to this nation. They have pleaded for repentance, interceded on behalf of the men, women, and children of this fallen nation, yet the nation continues to move deeper into sin.

Why should we be any different then the children of Israel? We profess to have once been constructed upon the Rock of Jesus Christ, blessed by the same Jehovah that blessed Israel. We have been grafted in to the vine, (not replacing Israel, this is a false and heretical doctrine taught by many churches in the west), so why then should America receive special treatment?

Hebrews 13:8 states, Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. John 1:1 tells us, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, further down in verse 14 we see that the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. Jesus Christ it the Word that was made flesh, so the Word is God, so every promise made by God is forever true. Whether promised 6,000 years ago or given to you today in the peace of prayer by the Holy Spirit, the promise is timeless. Often, too many Christians try to apply this to what suits them, using it for the justification of feel good promises, altogether disregarding the judgment and correction promises. This is a grave oversight and proves the judgment of this nation is soon to come.

A nation can never continue in sin after the Lord has admonished, through His messengers, to repent. Eventually the clock runs out, the last grain of sand has made its descent from the top. Not a second later, the wicked nation is judged. Sodom, Gomorrah, Babylon, Nineveh, Tyre, and hundreds (possibly thousands) of cities and nations have been destroyed, all by the hand of Jehovah for wickedness. God's warnings and His Word is soon to be proven again in America.'

I am troubled, and if it were not for the peace that I possess from the Holy Spirit of Jehovah, I would have already fainted in fear. I am pressed to send out these final warnings, because America, like nations before her has run out of time. The Heavenly Father has been continually patient and given this nation adequate time to repent. Sadly, she has remained unmoved. America has not harkened to the Words of the Lord.

America's sin cannot be measured in the mind of man, cannot be summed up in a word, so great is her sin that only Jehovah can number and weigh the amount.

Soon, on June 4th, our current leader will make an address to the Muslim world from Cairo Egypt. From this city he will lay out his peace incentive for the nation of Israel. His words, the state of his heart, and intentions found in both will be enough to tear America in two. He has been warned, even some of the House and Senate have asked him in letters not to turn his back against Israel, but he will not heed, just as pharaoh, his heart has been hardened.

From Egypt, we as a people who have sought after the righteousness of the Almighty Father, walked in the Way of Jesus Christ, the Ekklesia, will be set free. The remnant is soon to be called out to the wilderness. Just as the children of Israel saw the horrible judgments fall upon Egypt, we too will see such things and greater fall upon America. We must remain strong; we must remember the Blood of the Lamb covers us.

These things have been prophesied and confirmed by men and women of God. Do not be as the people of Noah's day, scoffing at the thought of rain. Repent, shut out the temptations of this world, are you truly called out? Do you lived as if you have been called out? Have you wholly given everything over to the Heavenly Father?

If you are living in sin, basking under the sun of the heathen, consuming filth, you will receive the same judgment has them. This message is serious and carries with it a consequence for failing to heed and repent from sin if you continue to live therein.

Ekklesia, do not tremble and do not shake! Though the ground crumbles under our feet, we must remember we are first grounded on Jesus Christ, the unmovable Rock. The Rock of Jesus Christ supercedes any shaking in the natural! Do not lose faith! We have been warned, the Lord has been continuously faithful to His own, flee to the wing of our Lord!

Let the sky fall, the earth shake and quiver, waves will come and consume the wicked, and our Father will take us out to the wilderness, but we must always remember these words,


Don't be found in the house of the heathen, you have been called out to live a life of righteousness. Seek you first the kingdom of God.

God Bless, daniel
