“But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15b)
When the men were sent into a village or town, and told to kill all the men, women and children, every living thing there, their wives, when they returned, did not ask them how their day went. Hardened men sometimes just need silence.
These men did as they were commanded by the Lord, there were not told they had to enjoy it, nor were they to despise the Lord for giving the commandment. There was no pride in their actions, they were empowered to perform a task, and they did as they were commanded.
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” (John 17:17)
“Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.” (John 6:68)
I do not beat around the bush, as it is called, in these letters to you, the truth must be told, not part of it, not in a way that shadows it or covers it so it needs to be sought after. If those powers of Spiritual darkness see that truth and decide to attempt to hinder it, then so be it, but I will trust in the promises of the Almighty. “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11)
There are wicked people out there who are going to die in their sins, I cannot reach them, they have denied the Holy One and His sacrifice, but that does not mean I will not point them out when it is necessary to, when I am called to go into the camp of the wicked, I will do so.
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
The lost are those we seek, and they are scattered in amongst the wicked, if you want to reach them, you must go to where they are, but you must hear the words of Samuel when he spoke to Saul, “And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?” (1st Sam. 15:14)
The wicked my friends, are not to be spared, they are abominable in the sight of the Lord, His wrath rests upon them even today, and as ambassadors of the Kingdom of the Most High God, we have been sent for a purpose. You must pull your sword out and use it for its intended purpose, it is the only offensive weapon given to you. It is to be used to divide bone and sinew, it is to heap coals of shame upon their heads, and if you have studied to show yourself approved, if your sole intent is to see the name of the Living God exalted above the heavens, then the lost amongst the wicked will hear.
But the wicked, those who have no fear of God before their eyes, may cause you great pain, even to the loss of your life.
There is a decision you must make in these dark days, and that decision is how much of the truth you are willing to speak, some or all, a part of it that reveals only the love of the Savior, or all of it that speaks of the wrath that rests upon the wicked. They will fight you tooth and nail, they will attempt to hinder your steps, they will resist you at every turn, but somewhere in their midst is one that the Living God has chosen for Himself, and you are to put on your armor, draw your sword, and go and find them.
That’s the job, that’s the responsibility, that is what men of God are called to do.
Some of you will not go back to your house that night but will go home instead.
Recall the words of the man of God, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” (Isaiah 6:8)
Can you repeat these words?
