If my God is telling me make haste and not wait on the storm I shall do just that. I shall tarry no more; for obedience is better than sacrifice. Faith is living in the glory of God and not our own destitute. Faith is trusting God. Who is faithful lest they do the will of God? I stand in confidence, not of my own will, but by the will of God. I hope in this God, the most High and righteous One. Truly the heavens rejoice to this truth. O LORD my blessed God, let your way be my way.
Who are they who say they are of God and will not guide the people? Who say, We represent God, and yet they leave the people to suffer? I cannot stand back anymore and must bring forth the righteousness of God. Today, I will speak about the ravening wolves, who instead of guiding the people in the hope and wisdom of God are too busy selling books, fulling their pockets, and seeking the vanities of the world. Many hold on to every word that they speak. Even the vain things they will not depart from it. They foolishly adhere to them and not the wisdom of God. For who is God that he will leave man to perish in ignorance? Who is this God that I serve who comes to me day and night? I tell you my God is a good God who will not leave his people in despair. Nor will he tell them to stand and wait in dead faith. In his name I stand. In his truth I proclaim what is right. My people, hear my voice and make haste and prepare, saith the LORD. Wait not for the storm. Heed to the word of God; for perilous times are coming.
The Spirit of the LORD is magnified in wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD (Isaiah 11:2).
Surely I tell you if the spirit of the most High God rest upon them they will guide the flock into safety. If you know a storm is coming will you not prepare for it? No one knows the intensity of the storm. All we know it is going to be terrible. “This know that in the last days perilous times will come (2 Timothy 3:1). Perilous times will come. But why do the people sit hopelessly listening to those who have a form of godliness but are far from God? Who shall stand in the spirit of the LORD, in the fear and the wisdom of God and guide the people? Who will not sit still in ignorance but will rise up in truth? Who are with understanding and the knowledge of the LORD, let them come forth. For I tell you the truth: the kingdom of God is one of the spirit of the LORD, full of wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, knowledge and the fear of the LORD. Let every man who is godly stand in this truth. Let every man who is filled with the spirit of the LORD stand in this truth. Let them walk in the wisdom of God and guide the people.
Without faith it is impossible to please God. Many say, wait; God will take care of us. Let us wait, aimlessly with false hope and we will be fed. Let us listen to the preachers whose houses are full but our are empty. Let us fool ourselves in believing that food will appear before us. Just sit and do nothing. Faith is not sitting hopelessly without the widom of God, hoping for a miracle. Faith is acting in the fear and the wisdom of God. This is not a passive thing. Work must be done. I say to all my brothers and sisters, let us prepare while we trust that God will see us through. Let us not have hopeless faith. But let our faith be hopeful in the spirit of the LORD. Things are going to get more and more difficult, especially for the children of God. Give yourselves a faithful chance. Stand in the wisdom of God. Depart from all those who even now are chasing the vanities of the world. They claim to hear from God but the fear and the wisdom of God is not in them. Depart from them; for they cannot please God. The day will come when they will stand before God and answer for their evil deeds. I tell you the truth – they shall stand in the judgment of God.
