I WOKE UP EARLY THIS MORNING AND DECIDED TO SLEEP A LITTLE LONGER. I HAD A DREAM THAT I TOLD SOMEONE THAT I KEPT HEARING JERUSALEM AND NEW JERUSALEM AND THEY SAID THAT IT MEANT DELIVERANCE AND I STARTED SHOUTING.THE PERSON TOLD ME THAT JEREMIAH 9 TALKED ABOUT DELIVERANCE. I LOOKED AT JEREMIAH 9:13 AND IT WAS WAS A WARNING; A PROPHECY OF THE JUDGEMENT OF GOD. I WAS LIKE THAT DOESN'T TALK ABOUT DELIVERANCE...THEN I WENT A LITTLE DEEPER.
1 Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weepday and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!2 Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men ; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers , an assembly of treacherous men . 3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant , and every neighbour will walk with slanders.5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speaklies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity . 6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.7 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I dofor the daughter of my people?8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out ; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.9 Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? 10 For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up , so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled ; they are gone . 11 And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant . 12 Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken , that he may declare it, for what the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through ? 13 And the LORD saith , Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein; 14 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them: 15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink . 16 I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known : and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them. 17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women , that they may come ; and send for cunning women, that they may come : 18 And let them make haste , and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.19 For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled ! we are greatly confounded , because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out . 20 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O ye women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and every one her neighbour lamentation.21 For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.22Speak , Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcases of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvest man , and none shall gather them. 23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight , saith the LORD.25 Behold, the days come , saith the LORD, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;26Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all that are in the utmost corners, that dwell in the wilderness: for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart
I WAS THEN LED TO REVELATION 3
1And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write ; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest , and art dead.2Be watchful , and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die : for I have not found thy works perfect before God.3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard , and hold fast , and repent . If therefore thou shalt not watch , I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.4Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which havenot defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.5He that overcometh , the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I willnot blot ou this name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.6He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write ; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth , and no man shutteth ; and shutteth , and no man openeth ;8I know thy works: behold , I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hastnot denied my name.9Behold , I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie ; behold , I will make them to comeand worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.11Behold , I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast , that no man takethy crown.12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write ; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;15I knowthy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.17Because thou sayest , I amrich, and increased with goods , and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich ; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed , and that the shame of thy nakedness donot appear ; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see .19As many as I love , I rebuk eand chasten : be zealous therefore, and repent .20Behold , I stand at the door, and knock : if any man hearmy voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with me.21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame , and am set down with my Father in his throne.22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
I woke up this morning with the scripture about the Parable of Talents playing (I play the bible on dvd while I sleep). God is returning soon, whether it be the rapture of the church or God visiting us in a way that he has not visited us I don't know but I do know that there will be a visitation.
