I Will Pursue You Relentlessly

Relentless

By Glynda Lomax, October 7, 2020

In the same way I am relentless in My pursuit of the wicked, I am also relentless in pursuing those you lift to Me in prayer. I will pursue them in their thoughts, in their sins, and in their despair. I will pursue them in their circumstances, giving them chance after chance to see it is I who arrange them, for good or evil.

I will pursue them until they have no rest if you will continue to pray, My children, and then I will pursue them with My great Love for them. Though to you it seems nothing is happening, in reality much is happening as I continue to be relentless in My pursuit of them.

Let us work together to save them.

For thus says the Lord God: “Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out. Ezekiel 34:11 

“…for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:10

URGENT 2 DAY WARNING Revisited – Was DAUGHTEROFTHELORD a False Prophet?

As many of you know, on September 10 I shared a warning from DAUGHTEROFTHELORD entitled: “URGENT 2 DAY WARNING for 9/11/20!!!”, in which she warned of an attack on our soil that will be “a plague of boils that will start along the coastland and move inland. This will cause panic and fear and a nation filled with tears.” 

I encouraged everyone: “don’t take my word for it, but do your own research, check these things against the Word of God, and take these things to the Lord for authentication.  Remember that the Lord’s time is different from our time, and any message that contradicts the Word of God should be rejected.”  

After the 2 days passed and a plague of boils has apparently not happened, a friend of mine stated: “Clearly the message from “daughter of the Lord” is not from God.”

Here is my response:

Dear Bill:  

You raise a good and valid question, and I appreciate your raising it.  On the face of it, you are correct – the warning message stated: “Daughter, there are things coming your way in two days that will cause destruction in your land. As the enemy wants to commemorate things that happened on that day and to send a message in a new way”, and we have not seen this happen.

Here are some thoughts on this issue. 

1) There are false prophets

It is clear from The Word that there are false prophets, including those who believe they hear from the Lord but do not.  Elijah took on false prophets in a contest, won the contest, and the false prophets were destroyed.  The admonition against false prophets (and false teachers) in the Word is quite strong.  So DAUGHTEROFTHELORD could be a false prophet (although I don’t believe she is).

2) We should look at this person’s life. 

Although I don’t know DAUGHTEROFTHELORD personally, her messages are accepted and posted on a reputable Christian website.  They appear to be Biblically sound, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and posted by a humble servant of the Lord.

3) God’s time is not our time

As I stated when I sent this out, God’s time is not our time, and we usually do not grasp what is happening behind the scenes.  Obviously we should be skeptical when a prophetic word doesn’t happen on the time frame that is stated and that we anticipate.  It is interesting to note that Jeremiah warned for 20 years before destruction came, and I suspect that he did not know when it would come.

Although it goes against our rational thinking, the 2 days may refer to 2 months, putting her prophecy in line with one from FreshOil. Here’s a quote from FreshOil: “However the Lord continued to remind me of this 3-day warning (from August). Then He revealed to me that 3 days also referred to 3 months. (https://freshoilreleases.wordpress.com/2020/09/05/food-for-the-journey-2/)  Then we would have to wait until November to see if this turns out to be true or not. And we get more time to prepare.

4) Sometimes we misinterpret a message. 

The message didn’t say there will be destruction in 2 days. It says “things coming in 2 days that will cause destruction in your land”.  So it could mean something happens in 2 days that later leads to destruction and this is a true warning from the Lord.  It is also interesting to note that Jesus said things like this all the time, that people misinterpreted. For example, Jesus is speaking here:

“Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.   Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.  So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!   Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.”  Matthew 24:30-34

So which of these is true – was this message from Christ genuine (and if so why didn’t this things take place as stated), or did they misunderstand what He was saying?  Perhaps Christ misspoke or was just having a bad day?

5) It is helpful to step back and look at the big picture and other sources. 

Besides the two-day issue is the question of a pandemic with boils.  This is confirmed by several other watchmen, although they did not give specific dates:  Last April 1, Sandhu Sadhar Selveraj, who is a highly respected Christian from India, prophesied on April 1 that 2020 was a year of preparation, and that God wants us to prepare this year because next year terrible things will happen.  He also said a worse pandemic is coming that will make coronavirus look like nothing.  It will be a mutation of COVID, that will feel like the sting of a hornet with great pain, and will cause boils on the body.  Another confirmation regarding boils is from this message from A Servant’s Heart:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYoarFTO5M0

In conclusion:

  • We should always approach prophecies with humility and skepticism – humility because they may truly be from the Lord, and skepticism because they may be false and from a deceiving spirit.
  • We should always test the spirits, and use the Word of God as our ultimate standard in all things.  Any messages that contradict it should be rejected.
  • Because this is about the Lord communicating to His people, our finite minds often do not grasp the full meaning of the message.  This suggests a more nuanced understanding of whether prophecies are fulfilled or not in the time and way we anticipate.  As you may know some prophecies in the Old Testament were fulfilled in the near time and are also being fulfilled in these end times.
  • Take a hard look at any messages that include hard dates because they may cause people confusion and disillusionment among Christians (including myself).

I believe crises are coming to America because God is just and our nation deserves it, and because He is merciful and He knows that many souls will come to Him only because of crises that threaten the status quo and their lives.  And that God warns us to prepare for our own good.  I have also come to the conclusion that although quite flawed, I am a watchman, and I don’t want anyone’s blood on my hands.   

Blessings on your day,

The Divinity of Christ

The New Testament only refers to Jesus Christ as “the Son of God” in a few places.  However, it does testify to his divinity – that he is God in multiple passages:

Jesus as Son of God

Mark 1:11 – At Jesus baptism, a voice from heaven said: “You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.  Same for Matthew 3:17

Matthew 16:15-17 – Jesus asked His disciples “But who do you say that I am?”  And Simon Peter answered and said, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.”

Matthew 26:63-65 – After interaction with Jesus, the high priest tore his clothes, which is what the priests do when they hear blasphemy (someone claiming to be God):  “And the high priest answered Him and said to Him, “I adjure You by the living God that You tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God.’  And Jesus said to him, “It is as you said.  Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.’  Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy!  What further need do we have of witnesses?  Look, now you have heard His blasphemy!’

Jesus as God

Matthew 2:23 quotes Isaiah 7:14, referring to Jesus:  “Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated ‘God with us’.”

Matthew 3:3 quotes a prophecy in Isaiah 40:3, referring to John the Baptist and Jesus:  “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: prepare the way of the Lord.  Make His paths straight.”

Matthew 4:7:  Jesus is talking to Satan, who is trying to tempt Him:  “Jesus said to him, ‘It is written again, you shall not tempt the Lord your God.’”

Matthew 8:22:  Jesus talks about people calling Him Lord, and He not denying it:  “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”

John 10:30–33 – Jesus stated: “’I and My Father are one.’  Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him.  Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father.  For which of these works do you stone Me?  The Jews answered them, ‘For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a man, make Yourself God.” 

John 18:4-8 – Jesus talking to the soldiers who came for Him –  “Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, ‘Whom are you seeking?’  They answered Him, ‘Jesus of Nazareth.’  Jesus said to them, ‘I am He.’ And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them.  Then, when He said to them, ‘I am He’, they drew back and fell to the ground.” 

NOTE:  The word “He” was added to later translations.  The statement “I Am” was known by the Jews to be a direct claim to divinity, as indicated in Exodus 3: 13-14.

100 Questions Jesus Asked and You Ought to Answer

Msgr. Charles Pope • February 10, 2012 

One of the bigger mistakes people make in reading Scripture is that they read it as a spectator. For them Scripture is a collection of stories and events that took place thousands of years ago. True enough, we are reading historical accounts.

But, truth be told these ancient stories are our stories. We are in the narrative. You are Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Deborah, Jeremiah, Ruth, Peter, Paul, Magdalene, Mother Mary, and, if you are prepared to accept it, you are also Jesus. As the narrative we read unfolds, we are in the story. We cannot simply watch what others say or do or answer. For what Peter and Magdalene and others did, we do. Peter denied and ran. So do we. Magdalene loved and never gave up, should should we. Magdalene had a sinful past and a promising future, so do we. Peter was passionate and had a temper so do we. But Peter also loved the Lord and ultimately gave his life for the Lord. So can we. Jesus suffered and died but rose again and ascended to glory. So have we and so will we.

The scriptures are our own story. We are in it. To read scripture as a mere spectator looking on is to miss the keynote. Scripture is our story.

In the light of this keynote there emerges another very important and powerful key to unlocking the text. The key is simply this: Answer the Question! Among the many things Jesus did, he asked a lot of questions! And whenever you read the Gospels and Jesus asks a question, answer it! Do not wait to see what Peter or Magdalene, or the Pharisees or the crowd say for an answer. You answer the question, in your own words. This brings Scripture powerfully alive.

So twenty years ago Bishop John Marshall, Bishop of Burlington VT., and later Springfield Mass compiled a book: But Who Do You Say That I Am? In the book he collected and listed all the questions Jesus asked in the Gospels. And he encourages us to answer the question. Bishop Marshall, in listing the question, gives extra verses for context and adds brief commentaries. However, I would like to list just the raw questions.

I will give the verse reference so you can look it up. But, unless you really think it necessary, avoid looking it up at first. Just let the question meet you where you are right now. The question may mean something for you that is very different that its original context. But that is OK. Just pick a question, read it, consider it and answer it, by talking to the Lord.

Read the list slowly, perhaps over days or weeks, often taking just one question at a time. I have attached a PDF version of the List here: 100 Questions that Jesus asked and YOU must answer. Again, ponder each question. Answer each question prayerfully and reflectively. This is not the complete list of questions but it is surely food for thought. Now, answer the questions:
