“Indulgences”

This morning when I woke up God told me” Daughter you are unclean and of an unclean people. Everything that you touch is unclean, because of your un-cleanliness. You must bathe and wash everything your hands have touched as a symbol of how I want to cleanse my people. This is a symbol of how I want them cleaned so that I do not destroy you all because of the un-cleanliness.”

And I asked God. How are we unclean? He did not say: you have sinned; He did not say: you are evil, He did not say that we were unrepentant. He said:

“ My people have called themselves by my name, they have repented of all their transgressions, of all their willful disobediences except one.”

“They have kept back indulgences for themselves. They have kept these indulgences hidden so that no one can criticize them, no that no one can hold them accountable. My people are weak, they are too weak to want to stand against their secret longings and wants. They are alone when they do these little self indulgences. They know they displease me and yet, they ignore the fact that even though others don’t see them, I see them.”

“My people, do not remember that I have already forgiven them. They have held back these self indulgences as pets they keep hidden away in a box and protected to have later. They have put these self-indulgences before me and before obedience to me. My people offend me because they continue to seek these “pets” for comfort and do not seek me. They participate in this unfaithfulness because they find comfort in their secret self-indulgences when they should find comfort in me.”

“These self indulgences are a part of themselves that my people fear to loose. They say in public,” we have given this part of us up to God and have died to ourselves in this matter,” But really they love their “pet” so much that it is left in the spiritual box of their own creation to be brought out when they want it.” “Because they do this they bare corrupt fruit. Everything they touch, every relationship they are involved in , every fruit they bare is also now corrupt, dirty, unclean.”

“Because they cling to this self-indulgence, they show they do not really believe me with their whole heart. They do not believe me with their whole mind, their whole body. To me they are blasphemers because of this: They have not believed me. They have not trusted me. They say they have died to their desire, but they are really deceiving themselves.

“But because I am a compassionate God. I will extend the time a little longer. I will give all my people the opportunity , a second, a third and a fourth chance for some of them, to repent of their blasphemy, to repent of their self indulgences and to be made clean before I fulfill my promise.”

“This is the promise I made: to start in the temple and place a mark on the foreheads of all who sigh and mourn for the sins of this land, so they will be spared as I bring the horror upon all those who have not believed me.

“Yes, they sigh outwardly , they pray beautiful prayers, they soak in my glory at church and in their homes, but I have this against them: they cling to this unclean thing in their life and will not give it up.”

“Cry out , Oh my daughter, cry out in repentance for yourselves, your children, your families, your shepherds, your neighbors, your friends, your churches, and your communities, cry out for your country. For the time is at hand. Believe me and I will watch over you. Believe my Son and you shall be delivered from the trouble ahead. BELIEVE ME, All of You People Called BY My Name, so that you may All LIVE!”

14 And if I say to the wicked man, 'You will surely die,' but he then turns away from his sin and does what is just and right-
15 if he gives back what he took in pledge for a loan, returns what he has stolen, follows the decrees that give life, and does no evil, he will surely live; he will not die.
16 None of the sins he has committed will be remembered against him. He has done what is just and right; he will surely live.
Ezekiel 33:14-16 NIV
