"You have set your sights on things above. Lofty things that appeal to the ego of man but have little if any eternal value. Many have taken their eyes off Me, embraced the lie and now follow blindly the fallen. You have no need of repentance or righteousness and this to your shame. You have lost far more than you can imagine. You have traded garments of praise for tattered rags and exchanged My glory for greedy gain.

Such *sadness grips this nation. 2016 has brought trouble to many, even now anger rages. A sad commentary for a once great land.

Wickedness rules too many hearts. Where are My shepherds? Where are those professing to be christians? As 2016 draws to an end the sadness will spread. The time has come that I must right all wrongs and balance the scales."

I ask....What can we as a people do? Will we stand for righteousness or allow the sadness to spread until we as a nation are consumed?

"Do not assume you can have peace apart from a life given over to Me. Do not think the ills of this nation can be repaired apart from repentance with much weeping and soul searching. There can be no redemption without repentance, no happy days without first comes broken hearts, broken over the sins of this nation.

A great deception is coming upon the people of the land. You have been warned, but you have not prepared. Anguish of soul as you realize you have been tricked by those you trusted.

Unpack your bags and settle in. You still have far to go before you reach home and there remains yet much work to be done."

"...if My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

"Do we not all have one father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously each against his brother so as to profane the covenant of our fathers?" Malachi 2:10

"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise." Psalm 51:17

  1. Ali, even though you write sobering words, I know that they are true. I am saddened when I go to church and my pastor does not talk about repentance. He does not preach that the hour is late. This congregation is not ready for God's judgment. I have talked to the chairman of the church and an elder telling them we are in God's judgment and nothing changes. I have sent Pastor Faircloth's sermons to our pastor along with many prophecies and the sobering words you put out and nothing changes in his sermons. My husband has his head in the sand also. So many are playing church and are lukewarm and it is so sad. I know, I was one of them. I know there are many watchmen warning and so many people not listening. Don't stop warning and please keep praying that others will open their ears and eyes to hear and see what is coming. Thanks for all you do Ali!

  2. Thank you Sherry very much. We also attend a church much like yours. Sadly there are more like these than those preaching judgment and the need for repentance. ' Just ask Jesus into your heart' rolls off their tongues without mention of righteousness. I consider the church we attend enemy territory and pray for the Holy Spirit to change the hearts of leadership. It is very hard, but this appears to be the norm as we see the days of wrath approaching. Know you are not alone. Keep sharing truth and praying. LORD bless. This is our assigned position and it will be worth it all when we see JESUS.!!!! <><

  3. Welcome back Ali! Praise God, I knew He would pick you up! I have had the same issue with church as you two, but I had an amazing week with the love of Christ being poured out through me to other people in my life. I never cried so much before, Praise the Lord! I had a conversation with a very like minded pastor this week and went to his church service and continued discussion. It was encouraging. All we can do is continue to pray for our brothers and sisters and cling to the Lord. I read Habbakuk 1 today and it is just like the state this world is in. Be encouraged that God is in control and that out prayers and love cover many sins and will help bring the lost to Jesus! God bless!

    1. A like minded pastor, a treasure indeed. I love the book of Habbakuk, especially Chpt. 3. I am blessed to be back on the wall. Listening to men and not God sure gets us in some hard spots, at least it did me, but great is His faithfulness. LORD bless.
