Problems and fears, disappointment and tears, is what I see today. For my people have gone astray and there is disappointment galore all over this land. Hearts are filled with emptiness as there is lacking within my Church. Gladness has been replaced with plastic happiness. Remove the façade of what you call worship and return to me. Return to me joyfully and return this way you call worship to me and let me remake it and break it and let it be opened up to me. Let me come back in and re-direct you in how to worship again. Let me show you to a place of repentance for the farce its become.
Ritualistic motions and sounds make you look like clowns. What I desire is true worship to me. True and contrite hearts full of thanksgiving to me. Fall on your faces and be filled with the fear of me. Let your minds be filled with the holiness of me. Do not be deceived that spending an hour with people filling a room equals worship with me. There is nothing corporate about your worship as you’ve been coming to me.
Let me remake you and reshape you into my glorious Bride. Let me consecrate you into who I want and desire you to be. There is nothing worshipful that you are bringing to me. What you’ve been seeing is a farce and a tragedy unto me. What my Son died to save you from is nothing like what you’re bringing to me.
What do you know of my Kingdom and the Light I bring to you? What do you practice on a daily basis that brings you to me? Where is your heart and where is your victory? Difficult words are being spoken by me – yet you do not look to me every day of the week. You do not think of me hour to hour, thanking me for the very air that you breathe.
Lift your head up and look to me for everything that you could possibly need. I am your provider and your friend in need. I do not look away from you when you come to me with your needs, but I hear you and take care of every need. Why would you think that I am not the provider of all of your needs? Why would you back away from me and say you have all that you need? You are empty and devoid of my power working powerfully through you and you are truly in great need of me!
You are not even awake enough to know you lack the greatest thing that is needed by man. What you think you know of my Spirit is not much more than a sham. This version you’ve designed leaves the heart and mind truly lacking. This is why the people are leaving and falling away from your gatherings. You offer nothing but preplanned meals that you hand out to man.
But the good news is I’m bringing about my changes to cleanse this land and bring it back to me once again. These changes will be uncomfortable at first, for there is much to change and make brand new. But as you look to me and see what I am doing, your heart will celebrate all that I have done for you. The life that I give and am giving to you will be an overflowing fountain of joy bursting within you. You will not be able to contain my joy, and my Light will flood your entire life. There will be no turning me off and on – just pure joy flooding you from within.
Make yourself ready to receive what is coming, for there is coming a great awakening to shake up this land and give new life and rebirth to my Church once again. My people get ready and make the way clear, by coming to me without religiosity getting in your ears. Let me free you from the disabilities that have held you back from truly coming and worshiping me.
Joel 2:12-13 Berean Study Bible
12“Yet even now,”
declares the LORD,
“Return to Me with all your heart,
13So rend your hearts and not your garments,
and return to the LORD your God.
For He is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger, abounding in loving devotion
And He relents from sending disaster.
John 4:24 The Passion Translation
24From now on, worshiping the Father will not be a matter of the right place but with a right heart. For God is a Spirit, and he longs to have sincere worshipers who adore him in the realm of the Spirit and in truth.”
Proverbs 9:9-12 The Passion Translation
9Teach a wise man what is right
and he’ll grow even wiser.
Instruct the lovers of God
and they’ll learn even more.
10The starting point for acquiring wisdom
is to be consumed with awe as you worship Yahweh.
To receive the revelation of the Holy One,
you must come to the one who has living-understanding.
11Wisdom will extend your life,
making every year more fruitful than the one before.
12So it is to your advantage to be wise.
But to ignore the counsel of wisdom
is to invite trouble into your life.
Philippians 2:5 The Passion Translation
5And consider the example that Jesus, the Anointed One, has set before us. Let his mindset become your motivation.
Revelation 3:17-22 The Passion Translation
17For you claim, “I’m rich and getting richer—I don’t need a thing.” Yet you are clueless that you’re miserable, poor, blind, barren, and naked! 18So I counsel you to purchase gold perfected by fire, so that you can be truly rich. Purchase a white garment to cover and clothe your shameful Adam-nakedness. Purchase eye salve to be placed over your eyes so that you can truly see. 19All those I dearly love I unmask and train. So repent and be eager to pursue what is right. 20Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If your heart is open to hear my voice and you open the door within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with me. 21And to the one who conquers I will give the privilege of sitting with me on my throne, just as I conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22The one whose heart is open let him listen carefully to what the Spirit is saying now to the churches.
