It comes as a surprise to many that that the doctrine of Ultimate Universal Restoration does not violate any critical church doctrines. This is not to be confused with the New Age or other unbiblical doctrines termed “Universalism.” In fact, early church fathers who outlined our most critical doctrines believed in Ultimate Universal Restoration and Salvation. They called the doctrine in Greek the “apokatastasis,” meaning the restoration of all things to what God originally intended. The doctrine of the apokatastasis was not even controversial at that time. They were mostly concerned with the nature of Christ, his deity and bodily resurrection.
The doctrine of Ultimate Universal Salvation rests upon the fact that the concept of eternal punishment does not exist in the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible. This subject is discussed in greater detail in the “Apokatastasis” FREE Watchman report. Christians need to understand that according to church history the pagan idea of eternal punishment gained prominence in the 5th century under the heavy hand of the Roman church and then Latin translations of the Bible magnified it as a doctrine. This man inspired doctrine that began in the Latin manuscripts then found its way into other languages including English.
The early English translation, the Wycliffe bible, was taken from Latin manuscripts. This man inspired doctrine has subsequently held great influence on later translations such as the King James bible. However, if you read translations that stick to the original Greek and Hebrew texts such as Young’s Literal translation or Rotherham’s Emphasized bible you will not find the phrase “eternal punishment.”
We know that salvation was accomplished by Christ at Calvary in his death and resurrection on the third day to atone for the sins of mankind. In the words of John the Baptist,
“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. – John 1:29.
The penalty for sin is death and Christ came to rescue all of mankind from the jaws of death. The Bible clearly tells us that all people are raised from death by Christ.
“Don’t marvel at this, for the hour comes, in which ALL that are in the tombs will hear his voice and will come out; those who have done good, to the resurrection of life; and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment.” – John 5:28-29.
Ultimate Universal Salvation affirms that God will punish sinners. Merely that those who did not follow Christ in their lifetime will be subjected to temporary corrective punishment at the judgement seat of Christ. Just because Christ rescued all people from the jaws of death does not mean they are ready to walk into God’s kingdom of love and goodness. Each person who becomes born again must go through the process of sanctification known as our baptism of fire or they too will be judged and given corrective punishment according to their works.
“But according to your hardness and unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath, revelation, and of the righteous judgment of God; who “will pay back to everyone according to their works.” – Romans 2:5-6.
Notice that Christ is going to judge unrepentant people and pronounce their sentence according to how hard their hearts are. Hitler, verses that kind and thoughtful but unrepentant neighbor will not receive the same sentence of punishment. This is clearly a righteous, just and balanced scale of judgment, but not eternal punishment.
As sanctified followers of Christ we are rescued (saved) from this judgment entirely and enter directly into life in God’s kingdom. But Paul is warning carnal unsanctified believers that those with an unrepentant heart are treasuring up wrath for themselves. If as believers we are judgmental and unforgiving Christ is not going to forgive us either. We too will be punished for a determined period of time by God’s in His purging crucible, known as the Lake of Fire, according to our works… but not forever (this subject is also Scripturally covered in the Apokatastasis Watchman Report).
Ultimately, all unrepentant people, will be reconciled to God when they truly become willing to confess with their mouth all unrepented sin and willingly bow our knee in submission to Jesus Christ. Again, according to (Romans 2:5-6), how long this takes to happen depends upon how “hard” the unrepentant person’s heart is.
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, those on earth, and those under the earth… and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:10-11
The Two Principles of Universal Salvation:
The Bible explicitly teaches that through Jesus Christ all people will be rescued from death. (1 Corinthians 15:22-26, 1 John 2:2, 1 Timothy 4:10)
The Bible explicitly teaches that God does not punish infinitely.
For the Lord will not cast off forever… For though he cause grief, yet he will have compassion according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses… For he does not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of men. – Lamentations 3:31-33
For I will not contend and accuse forever, neither will I be angry always, for if I did stay angry the spirit of man would faint and be consumed before Me, and My purpose in creating the souls of men would be frustrated.- Isaiah 57:16 AMP ( see also Micah 7:18, Isaiah 54:8, Proverbs 11:1, Psalms 145:13-14)
These two principles provides a basic biblical introduction for those who are unfamiliar with the doctrine of Ultimate Universal Salvation. Once we understand that the atoning work of Christ is the bases for the resurrection of the dead, including all of mankind, then we only need to determine if God punishes people without end.
Like myriads of other Christians, pastors and church leaders around the world— I became seduced and “enchanted” by a heresy known as DOMINION theology. During the 1970’s and 80’s, I was fed the “appetizers” of this heresy—by the “pulpit stars” of the apostate Word of Faith movement. Later, during the early 90’s I was served the “first and second courses” of this of this “heretical dinner” through the Apostolic and Prophetic movement, through Bill Hamon’s organization, Christian International Ministry, through which my husband Garry and I had become ordained and licensed as “Ministers.”
Then, in the early 2000’s we were served the “main course” through the (NAR) known as the “New Apostolic Reformation” movement. At that time, I had no idea that this movement was successfully reviving the “Latter Rain” Pentecostal heresy of the 1940’s. I had heard the term “Latter Rain” throughout the years but knew next to nothing about this heresy. Because of my ignorance, these apostate leaders (i.e. tares) were able to sow a lot of false teaching (i.e. leaven) within my soul. Since that time I have vowed to do all I can to expose the deceits and strategies of the enemy that are being used to deceive God’s very elect.
The NAR movement is an influence within Pentecostalism which teaches that the Lord is pouring out His Spirit again, as He did at Pentecost, and using believers to prepare the world for His Second Coming. The Latter Rain Movement is anti-dispensational and Amillennial, and many leaders of the movement embrace aberrant (unbiblical) teachings. The term “latter rain” was first used early in the history of Pentecostalism, when David Wesley Myland wrote a book called Latter Rain Songs in 1907. Three years later, Myland wrote The Latter Rain Covenant, a defense of Pentecostalism in general. The name comes from (Joel 2:23), “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.” Pentecostals interpreted the “rain” in this verse as an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The “latter rain” (the end-times outpouring) would be greater than the “former rain.”
In 1948, a “revival” broke out in Saskatchewan, Canada, and the teachings of the Latter Rain movement were clarified. Those involved in the revival were convinced that they were on the verge of a new era, one in which the Holy Spirit would demonstrate His power in a greater way than the world had ever seen. Not even the age of the apostles, they said, had witnessed such a movement of the Holy Spirit.
Latter Rain teaching is characterized by a highly typological hermeneutic. That is, the Bible is interpreted in a symbolic, extremely stylized manner. An emphasis is placed on extra-biblical revelation, from personal prophecies, experiences, and directives straight from God. Latter Rain doctrine includes the following beliefs: •God has restored all the offices of ministry to the Church, including apostle and prophet •praise and worship will usher God into our presence •denominational lines will be destroyed, and the Church will unify in the last days •the “latter rain” will bring God’s work to completion; the Church will be victorious over the world and usher in Christ’s kingdom
Many “apostles” in the Latter Rain Movement also teach the doctrine of “the manifest sons of God.” This is a heretical doctrine which says that the Church will give rise to a special group of “overcomers” who will receive spiritual bodies, becoming immortal.
It is important to note that the Assemblies of God deemed the Latter Rain Movement to contain heresy from the very beginning. On April 20, 1949, the Assemblies of God officially denounced Latter Rain teaching, nearly splitting the denomination in the process. Other established Pentecostal groups have passed similar resolutions.
Today, the term “latter rain” is rarely used, but the theology of Latter Rain continues to exert an influence. Most branches of the Charismatic Movement adhere to Latter Rain teaching. Modern movements such as the Brownsville/Pensacola Revival, the Toronto Blessing, and the “holy laughter” phenomenon are a direct result of Latter Rain theology.
My only salvation from this heretical Dominionism deception was that—I have always wanted “truth” to be confirmed to me by the Holy Spirit through the Scriptures. And the Lord was faithful to show me the error that was being preached. I cannot tell you how many times I had asked myself the question…”Where do you find that in the Bible?”—when I heard someone giving a “new revelation” or a NEW twist or interpretation to Scripture that conflicted with other Scriptures, which the Holy Spirit would bring to my mind. I am so thankful for being able to be taught by the Holy Spirit, and for having my eyes opened to the dangerous deceptions that are taking hold in this end time generation.
Dominionism theology is a heresy that is taking over many churches, and is a movement that desires war, bloodshed, and death. It is an IN YOUR FACE heresy but unfortunately, most Christians cannot see it, or realize what it is. They also do not realize how it is poisoning the church.
The movement is dangerous, and is promoting false prophecies about a coming crusade where CHOSEN ONES will be called to slaughter and butcher the enemies of God and Christians who are against them. Dominion Theology is heresy at its finest, it is unscriptural, unbiblical, and it involves sorcery, witchcraft, and New Age mysticism. It is a last day’s deception that has also invaded the U.S. Government, including the White House and the Pentagon, which means it has aligned itself with the forces of the Illuminati (Antichrist system).
It is vital that all of God’s people become familiar with the information found in this Watchman Report and I ask that you would please share it with your friends and family. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. (Revelation 12:12)
Those practicing the religion of Hinduism will tell you that Kundalini is associated with the coiling of a serpent. Scripturally, this spirit is actually what the Bible describes as the spirit of PYTHON, which is a sorcery spirit. In my research on the Kundalini spirit and from my Biblical studies on the spirit of Python, I found the correlation between the two to be pretty much the same… both are the practice of sorcery producing like manifestations from the same serpent spirit. As old saying goes, “a rose is still a rose by any other name” … therefore the “Python spirit is the Python spirit by any other name.” If a church or fellowship strays from the Scriptures or is not grounded in sound Biblical doctrine … that church/fellowship has “given place to the devil” (Ephesians 4:32), which we are told not to do . Those doing this become apostates, because “giving place” to the devil opens the door to demonic invasion. This is happening in those Churches/fellowships that teach seducing doctrines of demons such as Bill Johnson’s Bethel church in Redding California, because of their failure to dig deep into the Scriptures and … “rightly divide the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). If you don’t want to be deceived in these end times… Stay rooted and grounded in the Scriptures and test everything by them! Those who add to or take away from them are going to face God’s judgment (Revelation 22:18-19).
This shocking video reveals the origins and the wide spread invasion of the kundalini spirit among “apostate” churches.
“ For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” (1 Corinthians 14:33) “Let all things be done decently and in order.” (1 Corinthians 14:40)
The video documentary below reveals the origins and the wide spread influence of the kundalini/python spirit among apostate churches.
An unscriptural practice that causes sorcery’s false supernatural manifestations is that of going through “Fire Tunnels!” What was recorded in the video below at Bethel Church in Redding, California is a good example of an apostate church operating in sorcery!
We can become partakers of another person’s sin (such as deception and the demons associated with their sin) by the “laying on of hands” as in another false practice as seen in the video below…

Physical-Emotional-Mental Demonic Manifestations
A very common way for the Kundalini/python spirit to be given access to our life is through the demonic practices of YOGA. It is also imparted through meditation… and or other practices. This spirit takes control of the central nervous system and it travels up the spinal cord … up to the brain. I recall praying for a man to be delivered from this spirit and could actually see his spinal cord rippling upward under his shirt on its way to his head. Swami Vivekananda, who practices this brand of sorcery says, “When the Kundalini reaches the brain, the yogi (the person practicing yoga) is no longer trapped in the cage of his physical and mental identity and the soul is free.” In Biblical terms it means demons are able to invade the mind and manipulate the thoughts, emotions and will of the person!
According to Researchers in the fields of Transpersonal psychology, this psycho-spiritual and transformative process is believed to occur in connection with prolonged, intensive spiritual or contemplative practices, as practiced within meditation or yoga that is said to produce a complex pattern of sensory, motor, mental and affective symptoms associated with the concept of Kundalini, sometimes called the Kundalini syndrome. Manifestations of Kundalini are often viewed as an acute psychotic episode.
The National Institute of Mental Health (at: https://www.nimh.nih.gov) describes Kundalini as a condition of the mind that results in difficulties determining what is real and what is not.Symptoms may include (induced) false beliefs (delusions) and seeing or hearing things that others do not see or hear. Other symptoms may include incoherent speech and behavior that is inappropriate for the situation. There may also be sleep problems, social withdrawal, lack of motivation, and difficulties carrying out daily activities.
The titles for this 4-CD teaching series titles include… *What is the Three Fold Dragon Cord of Sorcery *The Spirit of Leviathan *The Spirit of Python *The Spirit of Pharmakeia Every person on planet earth is in some way affected by the influence of Sorcery and many, including Christians, can become bound by this threefold cord of the dragon by “giving place to the devil.” When Christians are not aware of how Satan uses sorcery to manipulate and deceive people, they too can be caught unaware and fall into grave deceptions. Jesus warned that even the very elect would be deceived. God’s word is clear that the way to disarm and frustrate the work of Satan is by exposing his deceits and strategies. Pastor Karen shares some of her personal battles with sorcery in her own life and ministry. This 3 fold dragon cord of sorcery is continuing to gain strength in the world and also sad to say in many Christian churches. In this series you will learn how to discern and deal with this influence. This material is a must for every leader and for every serious student of God’s word.
Jesus warned us that deception was going to be an earmark for the last days. This book deals with some of the false teachings and the effects they have had and continue to have, on multitudes of Christian’s world-wide. Karen is sounding the alarm as a watchman for the Lord for all “who have ears to hear” by exposing the anatomy of Satan’s subtle end time deceptions. Her motivation and message is to see God’s people awakened to some of the popular deceptions that have invaded the body of Christ. It is through these things that “even the very elect” are being deceived. This book reflects Karen’s anointing for being able to skillfully teach from the Scriptures by “rightly dividing” the word of God, which is crucial for receiving a correct Biblical understanding of the difficult subjects such as “Sorcery in the Church,” which this book addresses in much detail.

I ran across an article from 2013 entitled URGENT – 5 KEYS to DISCERNMENT – Andrew Strom that I feel is needed more than ever to be read by every professing Christian. Deception is invading a new generation of Ministries and Christians, across the world, and his message along with all other God ordained Watchmen need to heard. I have been an avid Bible student all of my Christian life (since 1970) and started my teaching ministry in 1985. However, many like I had been at one point, have come under the influence of and are being infected by sorcery and Charismatic witchcraft. For twelve years, my husband Garry and I were co-pastors of our EXTENDED LIFE Training Center that began in 1996.
During those years we were affiliated with the Charismatic (i.e. Word of Faith), Prophetic and Apostolic movements (now known as the “New Apostolic Reformation” or NAR movement). Through our association with these movements, we personally experienced the invading influence of the spirit of sorcery. It was through this experience with these movements that God taught me what I now have been by Him, as a mandate to urgently sound the alarm as a watchman to warn God’s people.
In my post entitled Kundalini/Python Sorcery Spirit Invading Apostate Churches I go into greater detail on this subject. Andrew Strom has a similar background and mandate from the Lord as God’s watchman. He prefaced his article by stating the following: “Seeing God-TV have decided to promote another Todd Bentley “revival,” I thought it might be good to once again discuss the topic of ‘discernment’ in these last days. God-TV has obviously not learned their lesson from the Lakeland, Florida fiasco that took place a few years ago, where Todd Bentley showed his true colors for all the world to see. Many Charismatic leaders are still wearing egg all over their face for their total lack of discernment during that fiasco. And yet here they are repeating all the same mistakes.”
The Article goes on to say: ” We need to realize that the Bible says to “Test the spirits” and warns very strongly that the Last Days will be a time of “seducing spirits” and great deception. Remember, a lot of the people caught up in today’s “manifestations mania” actually know their Bible quite well. And yet they could still be deceived. Did you know that even an unbeliever can often spot a ‘con-man’ or a snake-oil salesman? They get a kind-of “gut feeling” about such things. And they are often right! In fact, they are often less gullible than the Christians! (-Because we are told in the church-“Do not judge”, ‘Touch not the Lord’s anointed’, “You have a critical spirit if you do not join in”, etc, etc. This is the very reason why Christians are often the most gullible and easily deceived). So how can we become more alert to these things? what are the things that can help us avoid deception? Some of the most basic keys to discernment that God has shown me are as follows:
(1) Know your HOLY GOD intimately. (-When you have seen His glory, His holiness and His love – by drawing close to Him in prayer -then you can usually see through any “counterfeits” because you know the ‘real thing’ so well). (2) Know your Bible. It is very important to be able to spot teachings that are either extra-biblical or directly opposed to what the Scriptures teach. However, it is important to remember that the Scribes and Pharisees were extremely learned in the Scriptures and yet they missed the very Messiah that was prophesied! So knowing the Bible is important especially for doctrinal issues – but we need to be able to “discern the spirits” also. (3) Be a “lover of truth.” This is very crucial. Are you someone who will actually stand up for TRUTH – even against the crowd? Or do you remain silent even when you feel something is very wrong? (4) Purity of heart and Humility. Many deceptions only appeal to us because there is something inside us that “wants” to believe them. They seduce because of darkness and wrong motives in our own lives. We must search our hearts and root these out. (5) The ‘inner witness’ of the Holy Spirit. We must learn to NEVER over-ride this “still small voice”, as it will save us from deception again and again.
I believe that God has placed within every human being at least a measure of an inner “warning system” to protect us from being easily deceived – just as He has given us all a conscience. It is something that He has built into every one of us, in His mercy. (I guess a lot of it is simply `common sense´). However, Christians should have an even greater advantage in this area, because we have the “inner witness” of the Holy Spirit, and the `still small voice´ of the Lord speaking to us every day.
But what I have found again and again with people who give themselves over to some form of deception is that they often “override” these alarm bells. They go against their ‘better judgement’. They ignore the little voice deep inside them that is telling them that there is something wrong. Christians do this all the time. That is how they get themselves involved in such foolish deceptions.
This may all sound very obvious, but I am telling you, this one basic area alone could wipe out half the deception in the church right now. If only people would listen to these internal ‘alarm bells’ and act with common sense, half of it would be gone overnight.
The Bible is very clear that the Last Days are a time of such widespread deception that it would “deceive if possible the very elect”. It also shows that much of this deception will arise from WITHIN the church – luring believers with “itching ears”. Do we see evidence of this kind of thing taking place today? Certainly! In fact, some of it is at a level that is truly shocking. And yet it is all accepted as perfectly “normal” by many Christians. One of the problems, of course, is that those who bring in these deceptions are ‘trusted’ by the congregation. They have a reputation and they put across some very convincing sounding arguments and surround the whole thing with Biblical terminology. And thus the deception is harder to spot. (After all, if it were not “deceptive” then it would not be called ‘deception’!) People see spiritual power operating and assume that it “must be God”. But this is a very dangerous assumption to make in these days.
There is also a lot of “peer pressure “involved as well. For if everyone in the church is getting into something, then shouldn’t you just ignore those little ‘alarm bells’ and jump right in? This is what is happening all the time in the church right now. And some preachers are very good at making people feel that they are ‘hindering the Spirit’ if they do not get involved.
So how do you avoid being deceived in this way? Very simply, you do not go along to these meetings in a “gullible” frame of mind. And you do not allow yourself to be carried along with the crowd. You listen carefully to the preaching and make sure that it truly is Biblical. Then you watch the ministry happening down the front of the meeting and discern whether it really is of God or not. You do not “override” any feelings of unease or any ‘alarm bells’ going off inside you. And you do not allow yourself to be swayed by ‘peer pressure’. Even if the whole church is getting into something, it does not mean that you have to. If you do not feel quite “right” about it then DO NOT GET INVOLVED. If you need to, make some excuse and get out of there! You do not have to get involved in things that do not feel spiritually “right” to you.
A lot of people today will go down the front to get something “imparted” to them by almost every visiting speaker – almost as a matter of course. I tell you, in today’s climate this can be a very dangerous thing to do. In fact, some of this ‘impartation’ business has very flimsy backing in Scripture. Who knows what on earth these preachers are imparting? And who knows where they picked it up? I tell you, deceiving spirits are commonplace today, and they are being imparted to Christians on a large scale.
Let me give you an example. I received the following account from a preacher in England recently: “There were about 20 fellow ministers all gathered together in one large room at a local minister’s house. We were introduced to the special guest… The next 3 hours were the weirdest three hours I have ever had to endure, we started listening to [her] testimony which seemed very powerful, next she spoke of the times that she meets with the Angel Gabriel and other spiritual beings, next we moved on to portals between this world and the next and then finally to how she was going to open up a portal to Heaven in the room that we were all in. Now things started to happen, really crazy things and strange noises… As [she] moved around the room ministering to individual people they were crashing to the ground, bouncing up and down, running around as if on fire and making all sorts of sounds. When she came to me she had no prophetic words for me and nothing happened to me so she just moved on.
My Vineyard friend was the first to crash to the floor. Since that day his church has taken on a different guise, it is not the same church any more.” This is a true account, because it is very similar to what I myself observed happening under the same ministry. In fact, what I saw was people making involuntary “bat”-like movements all over the building and an eery ‘wailing’ noise filling the air. It was truly awful.Now, it should not surprise us that there are strong deceptions or “powerful delusions” around today, for this is exactly what the Scriptures predict will happen. All the way through the New Testament we are warned of these days – over and over again. One of the problems we have is that God actually does ‘strange and unusual’ things Himself. (-Think of the Book of Acts,for instance). So we cannot simply throw out everything “unusual”.
Angelic visitations DO HAPPEN. Strange prophetic signs DO OCCUR. And being a strong Charismatic Christian myself, I expect to see believers speaking in tongues and moving in the gifts of the Holy Spirit as well. Now, there is no doubt that many of these things could be termed ‘unusual’ phenomena. So how do we tell the difference? Well, God never goes against His own holy character as revealed in Scripture. And as I often say, we may see Him do ‘unusual’ things but I believe we need to draw the line at “weird” or ‘ugly’. Some of the deception that is around right now has a’touchy-feely’ New Age sense about it. Remember that the New Age movement majors on “inner healing” and unusual spiritual experiences. I do not believe in ‘guided visualization’ or anything of that kind. And neither am I fond of the writings of Catholic mystics or the like.
However, I have personally found it very helpful to immerse myself in the writings of past Revivalists and the accounts of great moves of God. A lot of the men and women involved in these Revivals lived very close to God and knew Him intimately. They knew His holiness, they knew His glory, and they knew His love. And it is enormously helpful to one’s discernment to immerse oneself in these writings, I have found. I would recommend this to all Christians everywhere.
If you have been touched or involved in any way with manifestations or experiences that you think may not have been from God, then I urge you to utterly RENOUNCE (with your mouth, but also from the depths of your heart and soul) any links or involvement with that experience or ‘anointing’. Please do not put this off, my friends. Some of this stuff is extremely dangerous. RENOUNCE IT today.
In a featured article at www.dailywire.com the headline read: The Anti-Christ UK Court Ruled Bible Is Incompatible with Human Dignity. As I read this it reminded me of a prophetic Word concerning Great Britain I found in 2011… Here are excerpts from that Prophetic word for the UK… from AUGUST 2011, by Lance Lambert Ministries www.lancelambert.org …
“Hear the voice of the Lord, O Isles that I have so greatly loved and favoured. I the Lord the Almighty, I took you when you were nothing, clothed with skins and wool and through My saving power, I made you great. When you were nothing, through My Word and your faith in Me, I lifted you and made you Great Britain…
Those Isles of yours were soaked with the blood of My faithful martyrs and its soil received the burnt ashes of those who would not renounce My Name, My Truth, and My Word. I, the Lord have not forgotten those who gave their all for Me! But now the whole nation that I created and sustained has turned from Me.
They paganise their land, state and institutions; there is no voice heard to warn the nation. False religion, the work of world rulers of darkness, cover your Isles; A Laodicean church, neither hot nor cold, rumbles on like machinery. It is a church where I am outside of its routine; its organisation and its methodology. It is Christianity without Me: Religion without Me! My being is seared with pain, for judgement is determined against your land. I can do no other. I will destroy the vestiges of her greatness; I will return her to her first estate.
I will wreck her economy, destabilise her in every way. I will change her climate, even her weather. I will prove to her that the way of the transgressor is hard and terrible. I will allow demonic forces held in check while by My Word and Gospel, and the living faith of so many, become rampant in her social life, to the destruction of her society. Will you who know Me and love Me go blind and dumb and deaf into this judgement?
It is time for you who love Me, who are faithful to Me, to take action! Stand before Me and plead The Finished Work of My Son. At least cry out to Me, that there will be those who turn from darkness, from sin, and be saved. For whosoever shall call upon My Name in the midst of these judgement, I will save! It will cost you everything to stand in the gap, but you will enter into My heart, and know deep fellowship with Me. Such travail conceived in your heart by My Spirit will cost you deeply, but it will end in My Throne and Glory.”
