Wages of Sin is DEATH

As I was drawn into the presence of the Lord in travail for sins of this world, I can hear the heart of the Father cry "Their sins are great, Their sins are great".....His cry was not only for those who do not know Him, but for those who call themselves sons & daughters.  People of God, please hear the cry of the Father in this hour.  He desires that none shall perish, but there is a great deception amongst His flock. 

We cannot live according to our ways and expect to please God in all we say or do.  Despite the messages coming forth from the pulpits that He is a loving God who forgives, there is also a Just God, A Holy God a God WHO is a Consuming Fire (Heb. 12:29)

The "church" has been operating against the design of God.  He never intended for us to compete against one another, to envy the gifts of others, to slander or gossip about others, to be divided in doctrine or denominations - we were not suppose to blend in with the world. We were not to be subjected again to a yoke of slavery (Gal. 5:1)  The desire to be greater in the Kingdom has led us astray from our call to "servanthood" - the very example Jesus gave us to exemplify to others.

James 4

Submit Yourselves to God
 1 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
 4 You adulterous people,[a] don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us[b]? 6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:
   “God opposes the proud
   but shows favor to the humble.”[c]
 7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
 11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister[d] or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?

Romans 6:16 Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey--whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

Beloved sons and daughters, we are drawing near to the coming of our Lord.  Therefore let us live these days according to His design and purpose for our lives.  Let us come to a place where all we do is thirst and follow after righteousness.  Let us present ourselves as holy servants of God.  Abandoning ourselves to the Lord who has called us out from death so that we may live for and through Him.

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? ~ 1Corinthians 6:9a

I pray that you hear what the Spirit is saying.  That you are able to hear the heart of the Father in this piece:


Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand,
THIS the Lord demands.
For the wages of sin is death
It will cost you your last breath.

Take hold of what the Spirit says and turn from your wicked ways.

For the Kingdom of God is drawing near,
Present yourselves in holy fear.

"I am a Holy God; A consuming Fire who judgment is just.
For those who enter MY Kingdom,
Repentance and Holiness is a must.

Therefore, do not delay
Repent from your sins and your human ways
For those who hearken to my call
Will arise and stand to inherit ALL."

"For the wages of sin is death" ~ Romans 6:23

Proverbs 11:19 The truly righteous man attains life, but he who pursues evil goes to his death.
Matthew 25:46 "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."
