Midnight Cry: A Message To All Churches
The Imminent Fall of America
Those words of John were not just for the time when Jesus walked the earth. They were prophetic. The same is true today! The Church shuts Him outside their door, fulfilling Jesusí words to John the apostle (Rev 3:20).
So there it is from two witnesses! This shameful charade, this pretence of piety Ė that Jesus is welcomed when He is not, really Ė is diabolical! It shows how much those who ought to be listening, just arenít! They hear what they want to hear, but what they donít want to hear, or donít care about, they shut their ears to. And Jesus is pushed away!
We have seen it repeatedly in our work. We send Christians further truth, and they donít reply. It is a rare person indeed who replies, and of those few who do, most of them are doing so merely for appearanceí sake, to look good, or to appease their conscience. 99% of them donít move on with further truth. They stay put with what theyíve got.
The trouble is, thatís backsliding.
I remember Ray McCauley (a well-known and prominent charismatic evangelist and church leader in South Africa) once giving a sermon at one of Colin Urquhartís Faith Camps in the nineties. I think it was about 1994. He made the inspired comment that when we walk with Jesus, we have to keep up with Him. If Jesus moves ahead a few steps and we slow down or just stand still, He is moving away from us.
You donít have to walk backwards to step back. You just have to stand still or fail to keep up with Him to see Him moving away from you. The trouble is, you wonít see Him moving ahead and leaving you behind. You wonít even notice the rift that is developing. It all happens invisibly, imperceptibly.
And both Ray McCauley and Colin Urquhart did the very thing the Spirit was warning them about in that meeting! I wrote to Ray McCauley in South Africa about his need to accept further truth and he never even acknowledged my letter and enclosures. The same with Colin Urquhart. He answered one of my missives, but conveniently shelved others I sent.
Their response is a representative example of what itís like across the board, throughout the Church. I have lost count of the number of ministries, church leaders or churches to which we have written. But I have not lost track of the percentage of response. Itís just as John said ďNo one receives His testimony.Ē
ďBut, hang on a minute,Ē you may object. ďJohn was talking about unconverted folks back then; he wasnít meaning the Church today.Ē Wasnít he? If that were so, why then did Jesus make the points He made to Laodicea? Are you not aware that such comments were prophetic and meant to be illustrative of a prevalent weakness in believers throughout time?
And are you not aware that when Jesus gives revelation to a prophet or apostle today, if that input is rejected or carelessly neglected, you are not merely rejecting the human messenger, but the heavenly One also?!
This is serious, deadly serious!
Helena was recently given a dream portraying the Churchís slumber:
But, did he read it? As God revealed Ė no! Otherwise we would have heard back from him. Even though he is a Christian (of sorts Ė who occasionally attends the Church of England) and meant to be in Godís family, he had a disinterest towards truth.
Whatís his problem? Jesusí words explain:
ďBut you said he was a nice man, so how can his deeds be evil?Ē
We donít see evil like God does. What we consider acceptable, God does not. And paying too much attention to physical things, and too little attention to Godís things (His truth, His Word, His Spirit, His gifts, His prophets, His revelations, His love and forgiveness) is completely unacceptable to Him, and a gross insult! It is evil!
Thatís why there is a condemnation against all such physically-minded people in Matthew 24:37-39. So, you are commanded:
Jesus came to that man when Helena gave him some MM publications. But he shoved Jesus inside the drawer and left Him there. Thatís what he thought of Him Ė not worth another look!
How do you think Jesus will respond to him when He comes in all His glory? The same way.
Itís sad. You want to wake people up, but you canít. They just donít care.
God foresees everything long before it occurs. He prophesied through Isaiah:
Yes, who will listen?!!
Jesus has already given the answer. He said:
ďAllĒ is pretty extensive! It may be a generalisation, but the few who listen are pitifully few! So few that, for the descriptionís sake, they can be ignored.
We have been calling ďRestore!Ē for many years, offering people the restored truths of God that were stolen away over the early centuries of the Christian era, but no one wants them. People just arenít bothered! Itís shameful.
Theyíd rather sit in their dingy prison houses, misnamed Ďchurchesí, and go along with the crowd, than come out (Rev 18:4) and rise up from their spiritual captivity as God commands them (Is 52).
Then in the next verse, we read of how God takes great pleasure in His righteousness Ė when that is transmitted to His human creation. So, you can imagine how highly He prizes the Work of restoration which continues today. Jesus exalted the law and made it honourable (Is 42:21). And we continue His Work today.
The irony is that they CHOOSE to stay in that state. It doesnít make sense from Godís perspective! Itís stupid! Itís rebellion. Itís wilful neglect. Itís pride. Itís stubbornness. Itís complacency. Itís all these things in people that prevent Godís Restoration fully restoring them. They only want half a job. They donít want the whole thing.
But whatís the good of accepting part and rejecting the rest? He who dismisses one part of what is required is guilty of rejecting the whole. The principle is outlined in James (2:10).
Can God accept such a people? No. So they face the frightening prospect of being spat out of His mouth! (Rev 3:16.)
People wonder why would God allow the awful horrors of the Great Tribulation to engulf His Church? If that is you, you need wonder no longer.
If you reject a prophet who brings the truth, you reject the One who commissioned him. You forfeit the prophetís reward, which is understanding and believing his message, after which you can receive more of Godís guidance, help and protection.
The Rapture is not coming like most believers stupidly assume. Jesus is not coming to steal away His Bride and ensconce her away to heaven, safe from all the troubles. Jesus is coming for a Bride who wants all of Him, all of His truth, all of His purity. But, because most of the Church does not want it all, He has to purify them of this double-mindedness, and sadly, the only way is through hardship, austerity and even death. Thatís what it means to be spat out of His mouth (Rev 3:16).
No one is listening now. But, thankfully, many will be listening then! A great number will be harvested through that time (Rev 7:9-14).
