A CALL TO WAKE UP, REALIZE THE LATENESS SOF THE HOUR AND RETURN TO YOUR FIRST LOVE
By Pieter Kirstein
The Father's heart and desire is clearly laid out in Hebrews 1
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past to the
fathers by the prophets, 2 Has in these last days spoken to us by his Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all
things by the word of His power, when He had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
Then He expresses the urgency of His message and cry through His Son, the Word of God Jesus Christ,
further in Hebrews 2
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. 2 For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression
and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; 3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by them that heard him; 4 God also bearing them witness,
both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
Then in Hebrews 3 the Spirit says the following;
1 Why, holy
brothers, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. 3 For
this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who has built the house has more honor than the house. 4 For every house is built by some man; but he that built all things is God.
Years ago the Father sent me on an assignment
whereby He exposed a ministry and a group of greedy businessmen who had this certain prophet on a leash. These people fell into deception and their focus was on money. The guy who was leading and doing the meetings, God said to me, became a prophet
for profit and that He is going to expose them all. Their motives became impure and corrupted because everybody was out for gain.
The Holy Spirit did 3 Apostolic Prophetic meetings through me whereby God introduced
His pure gospel to these people but most got offended. At the start of the 3rd meeting the Spirit of God spoke and confronted them by asking them the following question ; " HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO BUILD MY HOUSE IF YOU DO NOT OBEY ME?”
This is true in the lives of most Christians. I say to you as a servant of God that men will give an account of every word from the heart of God that fell on deaf ears. Did not Jesus declare in Mat 13:22 He also that received seed among
the thorns is he that hears the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.
Joh 12:48 He that rejects Me, and receives not My words, has one that judges him:
the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
John 8: 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews who believed on Him, If you continue in My word, then are you My disciples indeed; 32 And you shall
know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Notice He said that freedom is conditional to us if we continue in His word. Faith expresses itself in obedience through love. The claimed or professed faith of them who
hear the words of our God and do not obey is dead, futile, meaningless and fruitless.
Mat 13:23 But he that received seed in the good ground is he that hears the word, and understands it; who also bears fruit, and
brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
The Holy Spirit gave me a powerful vision of our hearts as children of God. He showed me that your heart is the garden of God. Every time He releases His seeds of
truth it is expected of you to receive it into the soil of your heart. When we stand before Him one day we will give an account of every seed of God's truth that He released by His Spirit. Did we ignore it or did we embrace it and cultivate it unto fruitfulness?
I saw how bags of seeds was kept and stored up at the gate of people's hearts.
Therefore the time of the shaking of all, the exposure of all and the call unto repentance has come and only a remnant shall come forth
and be separated as holiness unto the Lord for indeed most will be offended when the righteous Judge of all drops the plumbline of God's standard within the earth.
As a servant of God I strongly admonish you to heed the call, understand His message
and respond in the fear of the Lord because as Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
I am urging you dearly beloved of God to consider your life, your
walk, your attitude and heart towards the God of your salvation and ask yourself if you are one of those spoken of in Ezekiel 33 Also, you son of man, the children of your people still are talking against you by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and
speak one to another, everyone to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that comes forth from the LORD. 31 And they come unto you as the people comes, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear your words, but they
will not do them: for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goes after their covetousness 32 And, lo, you are unto them as a very lovely song of one that has a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear your words,
but they do them not. 33 And when this comes to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet has been among them.
The same is true today in many churches.
gave me 6 characteristics of last day Christians:
1. THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE.
2.THEY WILL INCREASE IN LUSTS AND SIN.
3. THE WILL ADD ONE TEACHER TO ANOTHER OR GAD ABOUT FROM CHURCH TO CHURCH
TO FIND THOSE WHO WILL NOT INSIST ON THEIR GETTING RID OF SIN AND SINFUL PLEASURES.
4. HAVING ITCHING EARS THEY WILL DESIRE SPEAKERS WHO WILL TICKLE THEIR EARS AND EXCUSE THEIR PASSIONS IN THE NAME OF RELIGION.
5. TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM
THE TRUTH WHICH STRIPS THEM OF SIN AND DEMANDS THEIR WHOLEHEARTED CONSECRATION TO GOD.
6. TURN TO FABLES AND FALSE RELIGIONS THAT PAMPERS THE FLESH AND CONDONE SIN.
In 2 Timothy 3 God declares
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural
affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such
And indeed a remnant shall be sifted out of the masses who are sincere and sold-out to God that will honor the Lord through holy living because they have considered the great price that He paid to empower them
Most Christians are just saved by grace but live for themselves and according to their own book. They say that their lives belong to God but by their actions they prove to live according to their own
standards. If God truly owns your life then you will allow Him to have His sovereign way with you. To claim that my life belongs to the Lord means that I am His property bought and paid for and therefore I allow Him to exercise His right in and through my
surrendered life. How misleading to say, “MY HEART BELONGS TO JESUS BUT I LIVE FOR ME”.
It is like saying to somebody: “ I give you a cup of water but I am going to drink it or I give you this house
as your property but I will live in it.” Like Smith Wigglesworth said, “there is no room for 2 lives in 1 body” either you completely surrender and loose the old life of the flesh and receive, walk in and live the life of Christ empowered
by the Holy Spirit or you stay stubborn, choose to do it your way and then suffer the consequences.
Your CREATED PURPOSE is to live a life in pursuit of God.
How would you feel if you stand
with “your spouse to be” in front of the pulpit, she says to you,”my angel I take your hand in marriage and my heart belongs to you forever” and leave you standing there, turns around and walk out the door with another lover. Well it
sounds hectic but this is exactly how it is with most so-called Christians.
Please understand beloved that God has a rewarding structure in dealing with His people (2 Cor 5:10-11). The Lord said to me this is how it works,
when you stand before Him one day, He will ask you: How much glory did you allow Me to receive through your life when you walked the earth and how much glory did you hold back for yourself? Did you live for the praises of men or the praises of God? When you
stand in front of the mirror you need to declare to yourself that you are the seed of your eternal harvest and you are your eternal personal investment in My kingdom and the question is: HOW MUCH ARE YOU HOLDING BACK?
In following Christ as a devoted disciple, judge your eternal success by what you had to give up in order to achieve it.
A certain man of God Dr. Thompson wrote the following about the deception in many churches
which are keeping God's people in bondage… The truth is, we have been taught that it is not essential we do God's will because we have been "saved by grace." It is not necessary we come to the stature of the fullness of Christ because we have
been "saved by grace." It is not necessary we go through fiery trials with the Lord because we have been "saved by grace." It is not absolutely necessary we deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow the Lord Jesus each day because we have
been "saved by grace." It is not absolutely necessary we present our body a living sacrifice to God because we have been "saved by grace." The expected result of the current teaching is spiritual babies. They do not know the Consuming Fire of
Israel. The only righteousness they understand is that which is given to them with no effort on their part. They know nothing at all about holiness, except it has something to do with the way women used to wear long dresses. To them, God is a kindly,
loving grandfather who spoils His children, making no uncomfortable demands on them. Such is the mythical "Gentile church." (end of quote)
Ask yourself if you will be amongst the remnant, totally abandoned to God end-time
army of believers that will demonstrate your devotion toward Him through a yielded life?
Isaiah 10:20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of
Jacob, shall no more again stay on him that smote them; but shall stay on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.
22 For though your people Israel be as
the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness. 23 For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the middle of all the land.
Isaiah 46:3 Listen to me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb:.4 And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have
made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you. 5 To whom will you liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like 6 They lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith; and he
makes it a god: they fall down, yes, they worship. 7 They bear him on the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place, and he stands; from his place shall he not remove: yes, one shall cry to him, yet can he not answer, nor save him out of his
trouble. 8 Remember this, and show yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O you transgressors. 9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 Declaring the end from the
beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: 11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executes my counsel from a far country: yes, I have spoken it, I
will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. 12 Listen to me, you stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: 13 I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place
salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.
I hereby prophesy to this generation by the spirit of God that the Lord will crush every golden calf, every brazen image and will lay siege to every false foundation and idolatrous structure
of man's church because many are the idols that are worshipped.
It is written in Ezekiel 16 of the harlot; 13 Thus were you decked with gold and silver; and your raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered
work; you did eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and you were exceeding beautiful, and you did prosper into a kingdom.14 And your renown went forth among the heathen for your beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put on you,
said the Lord GOD.15 But you did trust in your own beauty, and played the harlot because of your renown, and poured out your fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.16 And of your garments you did take, and decked your high places
with divers colors, and played the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.17 You have also taken your fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given you, and made to yourself images of men, and did commit
prostitution with them,18 And took your broidered garments, and covered them: and you have set my oil and my incense before them.19 My meat also which I gave you, fine flour, and oil, and honey, with which I fed you, you have even set it before
them for a sweet smell: and thus it was, said the Lord GOD. 20 Moreover you have taken your sons and your daughters, whom you have borne to me, and these have you sacrificed to them to be devoured. Is this of your prostitutions a small matter, 21
That you have slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them? 22 And in all your abominations and your prostitutions you have not remembered the days of your youth, when you were naked and bore, and were polluted
in your blood.
23 And it came to pass after all your wickedness, (woe, woe to you! said the LORD GOD;)24 That you have also built to you an eminent place, and have made you an high place in every street. 25 You have built
your high place at every head of the way, and have made your beauty to be abhorred, and have opened your feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied your prostitutions.26 You have also committed fornication with the Egyptians your neighbors, great
of flesh; and have increased your prostitutions, to provoke me to anger. 27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over you, and have diminished your ordinary food, and delivered you to the will of them that hate you, the daughters of the Philistines,
which are ashamed of your lewd way.
28 You have played the whore also with the Assyrians, because you were insatiable; yes, you have played the harlot with them, and yet could not be satisfied.29 You have moreover
multiplied your fornication in the land of Canaan to Chaldea; and yet you were not satisfied therewith. 30 How weak is your heart, said the LORD GOD, seeing you do all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman; 31 In that you build your
eminent place in the head of every way, and make your high place in every street; and have not been as an harlot, in that you scorn hire; 32 But as a wife that commits adultery, which takes strangers instead of her husband!
33 They give gifts to all whores: but you give your gifts to all your lovers, and hire them, that they may come to you on every side for your prostitution.34 And the contrary is in you from other women in your prostitutions, whereas none follows
you to commit prostitutions: and in that you give a reward, and no reward is given to you, therefore you are contrary. 35 Why, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD: 36 Thus said the Lord GOD; Because your filthiness was poured out, and your nakedness
discovered through your prostitutions with your lovers, and with all the idols of your abominations, and by the blood of your children, which you did give to them;
37 Behold, therefore I will gather all your lovers,
with whom you have taken pleasure, and all them that you have loved, with all them that you have hated; I will even gather them round about against you, and will discover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness.38 And I will judge
you, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give you blood in fury and jealousy.39 And I will also give you into their hand, and they shall throw down your eminent place, and shall break down your high places: they shall strip
you also of your clothes, and shall take your fair jewels, and leave you naked and bore.40 They shall also bring up a company against you, and they shall stone you with stones, and thrust you through with their swords.41 And they shall burn your
houses with fire, and execute judgments on you in the sight of many women: and I will cause you to cease from playing the harlot, and you also shall give no hire any more.42 So will I make my fury toward you to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from
you, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry. 43 Because you have not remembered the days of your youth, but have fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense your way on your head, said the Lord GOD: and you shall
not commit this lewdness above all your abominations.
Paul declares in 2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin
Any church, any Church leader or any person and man-made organization that resists or defiles the pure gospel of Christ unto the repentance of sin and embracing the call of the cross in dying to self will not stand
in the judgment of Almighty God unless they reform their ways, seek for the old paths and walk in it.
Isaiah 35: 8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean
shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:10 And
the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy on their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
The Lord said to me that the golden calf that
men now worships through the focus on money will be judged and cast down according to Isaiah 41:6 Turn all of you unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted. 7 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and
his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin
Job 22:21 “Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; Thereby good will come to you.22 Receive, please, instruction from His mouth, And lay
up His words in your heart.
23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up; You will remove iniquity far from your tents. 24 Then you will lay your gold in the dust, And the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks.
25 Yes, the Almighty will be your gold and your precious silver;
26 For then you will have your delight in the Almighty, And lift up your face to God.
27 You will make your prayer to Him,
He will hear you, And you will pay your vows.
28 You will also declare a thing,
And it will be established for you;
So light will shine on your ways.
29 When they cast you down, and you say, ‘Exaltation will come! Then He will save the humble person. 30 He will even deliver one who is not innocent; Yes, he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.”
Deuteronomy 9:21 And I took your sin, the calf which all of you had made, and burnt it with fire, and stamped it, and ground it very small, even until it was as small as dust: and I cast the dust thereof into the brook that descended out of the mount.
IT IS TIME TO SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
In closing I am sharing a powerful word which the Father released through one of His prophets about this time:
By Raymond Aguilera
Wake-up people, smell the coffee! The Day of the Lord is here! The day of man’s church is over. The pride, the arrogance, the theatrics’, the way of speaking to fill-up man’s
pockets using the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth - is over. The Vengeance of God is direct and pointed. You can keep on preaching money, dollars, and see where you will find yourself on the Day of Judgment. No one can buy the way into Heaven, no one can
sell Heaven. No one is great, no one is famous in the Eyes of the Lord. Focus on Jesus Christ of Nazareth and ONLY Jesus Christ of Nazareth. That is where the Power is, that is where the Glory is.Remember the story of the rich man and Lazarus, or should I
say the rich preacher/ pastor/ priest - and Lazarus. When the end comes, they will know how TRUE these Words are. All Power and Glory belong to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, all Power belong to Jehovah, all Power belongs to the Holy Spirit. These so called famous
preachers, evangelists, are blinded by their so called fame.
That means nothing to the Lord Jehovah, to the Lord Jesus Christ, to the Lord the Holy Spirit. They are digging a pit for themselves in their fancy clothes, in their big
houses, looking for the places of honor to sit.The Ways of God are not the ways of man. The word is humble, meek, as a child. Man has no power. Man can heal no one. Man can teach nothing unless the Power of the Holy Spirit is working through them. They can
claim this. They can claim that – it doesn’t make it so! They will receive no glory in Heaven for I do not recognize, I do not acknowledge, I do not know them. Each step that you take toward your Heavenly Father, toward Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
toward the Holy Spirit - everyone has to carry their cross with a humble spirit, with a hungry heart, seeking Jesus Christ of Nazareth. All Power, all Glory, all Might belong to Jehovah, belong to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, belong to the Holy Spirit.These men
will never see what they are telling other people will find in Heaven. They don’t know Jehovah, they don’t know Jesus Christ, they don’t know the Holy Spirit.
It doesn’t matter how they say it, how often they say
it. The blind leading the blind - and they all fall into the pit. These Words are hard, these Words are pointed. These people have developed, being an art, of convincing people they are right, they are true. Jehovah God reads the heart, the Lord punishes,
corrects everyone. There is no excuse. There is no way of talking your way out.Finding God is simple and it is free. The Love of God is the Love of the homeless, the hungry, the sick, the needy. Pray and pray and pray. I will hear you, I will examine your
heart and I will save you from the televangelist, from the devil, from your enemies. The end is before you. Seek My Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth with a pure heart, with righteousness, read the Bible, have Communion, love one another, help one another. You
are running out of time.
