Will you stand?
Just ask yourself the question, will you stand? Many don't realize what that implies and will quickly respond with a yes, but the Lord wants to know will you stand? The Lord is asking His people will you stand? Will you stand even in persecution, will stand even in affliction, if things don't turn out the way you thought? Will you stand if I say No? Will you stand if all hell comes against you? Will you stand alone?
Will you stand when I come with raging judgement? Will you stand in the fire? Will you stand? The Lord continues to repeat will you stand because not all of the people's heart are towards Him. He is looking for a generation that will seek His face, a generation that will stand for the evolution of the church, a generation that will stand in the preparation of the grounds for the coming of the King. Most say that they will stand, but the Lord has tested those who have been burned in the fire, the Lord has watched the mockery and the Lord has noted those who quickly buckled. There are those who became the devil's advocate and stood but on the wrong side. So He asks His people again, will you stand? Whom will you serve?
All works will be tested by fire. 1 Corinthians 3:13 NIV, "...their work will be shown for what it is, because the day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved- even though only as one escaping through the flames." 1Corinthian 3:11, For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
So again, the Lord wants to know will you stand when what you say is unpopular, will you stand in persecution or in accusation? For the Lord is raising up a remnant that has been charged with the reformation of the church to holiness and righteousness for the evolution of the church.
"I am preparing the people as a way of a warning to them. For my desire is to see them saved and have the full knowledge and understanding of Who I am and not who they think I am. I have come to reveal the mystery of the word but ears have been closed and eyes have been blinded. Will one walk in instruction if they can not hear, will one know who to follow if they can not see. I have come to open the eyes of the blind, and removed the hardened wax from the ear so that this generation may hear my voice. My voice is like thunder and soft like a whisper but the word is the impact and where it impacts is where I am. I will no longer tolerate the miry clay and sword for the word that is defiled will be revealed and so will those who teach it. I am bringing all things to light even regarding those who have been charged to teach and have desecrated the word, I am uncovering the thieves, and revealing the false prophets. My house is still the house of prayer and will be as such. I have given many much time to repent but the deceiver has hardened their heart, I have sent my messengers but they did not receive them, the prophet has spoken and they have turned their ear, I am coming soon and coming with a sword, I am coming and will not withhold judgement toward the wickedness. I say to you repent, I say to you repent, for when I come I will come with judgement. I am giving my people a warning. Take heed to the word." Thus says the Lord.
