A Sword, a Sword Is Sharpened
Ezekiel 21:7 And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Wherefore sighest thou? that thou shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord GOD.
(Prophecy) Yes, My children, it cometh! Are you preparing, or will your heart melt because you became familiar with the time we are living in? Are you encumbered with your battles and trials, and like the foolish virgins, didn’t fill your lamps? Are you willing to give up your trinkets or perhaps your earthly dream and get your spiritual life in order? Will you regret and wish you only had? Instead of having to fudge it when it does come and quickly scramble for your sword, wherever it might be, make the choice now to give it your all and let Me breathe my breath into you and put flesh on your bones. Know that I have placed you where you are; so why not be the best instead of languishing for a different life. I have handed you treasures, and you toss them aside as if they were cheap costume jewelry! Yes, it costs! It costs, and it will kill you to give up what you think would be better and would satisfy your flesh and your feelings, but it is only in dying and being broken that you will understand the Word, know Me deeply and realize your calling. Whether you are a child, a teen or an adult…you must grow up!
The Lord then told me to go to Ezekiel 21 and see what the next verses say!
Ezekiel 21:8 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
21:9 Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD; Say, A sword, a sword is sharpened, and also furbished:
21:10 It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter; it is furbished that it may glitter: should we then make mirth? it contemneth the rod of my son, as every tree.
21:11 And he hath given it to be furbished, that it may be handled: this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished, to give it into the hand of the slayer.
Trim you lamp
for the night is upon us!
“Cut the Devil to the heart! Whack him! Smash him! Thrash him with the power that you have by wielding the sharp key of dedication! The more this key is used in your life, the sharper it will become for you, and you will cut the Enemy to the heart whenever he tempts you to fall back on your goals of staying clean for Me and separate from the world!“
