Who are “My people”?
God’s people. Israel. That’s who it initially referred to but if you read on you find that anyone who calls on the name of the Lord are His people.
So what does this mean? God’s not waiting on unsaved people to heal our land, he’s waiting on His Church. You know who you are. We know who we are.
This is an unpopular opinion in the church world but there are many who call themselves Christians who masquerade behind that label while living a life nothing like the Bible calls them to live. I’m not talking about mistakes because believer or not, we all make mistakes. I’m talking about living in ways that do not align with the Word of God. You will need to read the Word and find out what it says about how we should live as followers of Christ if you do not already know. Read with sincerity in your heart and ask God for His help to understand and turn away from those things that He calls us to turn away from.
Luke 12:2-3 says But there is nothing [so carefully] concealed that it will not be revealed, nor so hidden that it will not be made known. For that reason, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed on the housetops.
Luke 12:2-3 AMP
Years ago in prayer I heard the following and I have prayed this way ever since – “I’m calling out the so called Christians. Put the Holiness back into Holy. Sweep the nation.” When I heard those words in prayer, they doubled me over, physically – literally.
God has periodically reminded me of this moment and lately has been pressing it upon me to share those words He spoke to me in early 2010.
I said recently there will be many who lose faith or fall away because their faith has been in man and not God. They have put men on pedestals and worshipped the pulpit those men preach from instead of worshipping God. If any of those “men” are brought to light as not living for God, many will feel betrayed and their pride hurt because of their own misplaced faith and it will break them.
It’s time for the Church to examine itself. The threshing floor is about to be purged. Be the wheat, not the chaff.
