"I'm Calling You Out!"
I am calling out those who claim to be called by My Name – you who seek My focused attention, but will not give Me your ear; you who want Me to move in response to your tears, held in the bottle of heaven, but purposefully turn away from Mine, allowing them to fall unobserved or write them off as insignificant. I am calling you out! I desire those who seek Me wholeheartedly, those who will stand in the gap. I sicken of those who speak right things with their mouths, but their hearts are turned far from Me. I desire hearts that reflect My own; those who will fast, choosing to have their hearts torn on behalf of those lost and weep with Me for the unsaved who have become of no consequence to My church, more concerned with the opinions of men rather than their souls. I am calling for you to turn and take notice of your God and your fellow man! I am calling for repentance from self-centeredness and a preoccupation with things that have no eternal value. I am calling for more than a Sunday morning sacrifice. I am calling for a life-long total surrender and a laying down of excuses. I will hear them no more. I am calling you into right relationship with Me.
Joel 2:12-14, “’Yet even now,’ says ADONAI, ‘turn to Me with all your heart with fasting, weeping, and lamenting.’ Tear your heart, not your garments; and turn to ADONAI your God. For He is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger, rich in grace, and willing to change His mind about disaster. Who knows? He may turn, change His mind and leave a blessing behind Him, [enough for] grain offerings and drink offerings to present to ADONAI your God.” CJB
Matt. 15:7-9, “Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’” NKJV
Ps. 17:15, “As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.” NKJV
