And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. And to the others He said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. (Ezekiel 9:4-6)
The Church is called to be obedient, and be about our Father's business. We cannot be busy with ourselves, and trying to do our work, or even His work in our own power. GOD is going to clean house. He will only respond to those that truly seek Him. GOD, as a perfect Father, insists and chastises His own, but gives us our freedom to choose whether to obey or not.
There are consequences to our choices. If we choose Him, we choose Life, blessings, and freedom. If we reject His principles and obedience to His Authority, we receive death, curses, and captivity.
Captive to our sIn, curses and destruction, either now, or when GOD sends those that didn't choose Him in life, Death of our relationships and desires, and the second death that comes to those that reject GOD as their Saviour.
All those that don't know Jesus, who don't have a covenant relationship with Him by faith in His finished work on the Cross of Calvary are already condemned. But, GOD is not willing that you should perish, but wants you to come to the knowledge of the Truth. The Truth, from His Word, that He loves you, and wants you to choose Him and surrender to Him on His terms. Jesus loves you and wants you to be born again, and receive by Faith the new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that He wants to give you. Believe Him and His Word today.
If you are one of His, be obedient to His Word and tell others of His love and grace so they may choose Him.
