No more time for Lukewarmness nor Complacency.
By Pieter Kirstein
God is bringing clarity, correction and exposure
through the end-time ministry of His sons and daughters who stand in His holy counsel.
He spoke to His people through J Leland Earls who was a forerunner during 1960-1991
Now notice a further characteristic of the Laodicean period. ‘Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and
have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness
do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye-salve, that you may see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous
therefore, and repent.’ (Rev. 3:-1-7-19).
A contributing factor to the spiritual lukewarmness of the present day church world is the prosperity
which abounds in most western nations.
A feeling of smug complacency has blinded the churches to their spiritual
poverty and their desperate need. Clothed with their own self-righteousness, they know not their nakedness in my sight.
Therefore I have raised
up messengers to expose and rebuke the carnality, apostasy and ineptness of the spiritually destitute churches. I call for repentance!
I am moving in my providence to bring chastening through adverse conditions in civil life and international affairs. Conditions will become so severe that the people of the predominantly Christian nations will either repent or perish.
It is because of my great love for those who know not their folly and the consequences thereof that I rebuke and chasten.
I must awaken those who are asleep and destined for destruction. Otherwise there would be no hope.
There is a great need now for the three things which I offer. The first is gold tried in the fire. Gold is a symbol of true spiritual character, brought about by the working of my Spirit and forged in
the crucible of testing experiences. I must have a people who are completely receptive to my workings in their inner being and thoroughly purged from the dross of their own ways.
The second is white raiment. This is symbolic of that righteousness and purity which only I can impart. Only those who are fully clothed with this raiment can enter into the end-time ministry of that
spiritual Body which I am raising up.
The third is eye-salve to anoint thine eyes. Only the revelation of my Spirit
can cause you to see the mighty truths which I would have you know in this hour. Since I counsel you to ‘buy' of me, there is a price which must be paid. The price is simply the willingness to let me have your life to do with it as I please.
Only as there is complete yielding and obedience, can I be the means of bringing forth in your life pure gold, impart to you white raiment, and anoint your eyes to see my truth.
'Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.' (Rev. 3:20).
My people, I long to have that intimate communion with you which is described in these words. But so few want to invite me in to take complete control of their lives. This is the day that I am offering to make myself real
to a people as never before in history. Will you not open your heart and let me have my way in you? I am ready to show myself strong on your behalf.
other generation has had as great an opportunity as I am offering to you in this hour. I stand at the door and knock; the choice is yours.
now for the final promise to the over-comers in these seven letters. ‘To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.' (Rev. 3:21).
Even though I was the very Son of the Highest, functioning on the plane of Deity, I emptied myself and took on the form of man, that I might overcome as
a man. Then was I highly exalted and given a place of rulership on the throne of my Father.
This is the pattern
for those who love me and let me bring them into an overcoming experience, rising above the spiritual level of most Christians.
To ‘overcome’ means to rise above, to come up over to a higher spiritual plane. It comes only through greater yielding and submission to my will.
