Man, Murder, and the Lamb of God

|Luke 3:4 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Luke 3:5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways [shall be] made smooth;
Luke 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
Luke 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
John the Baptist would be killed today and so would Jesus--there is just one difference. Today's harbinger (war) and tomorrows rescuer, Christ, is coming in Glory, untouchable by man.
ALL IS FORGIVEN
Yes, you could have driven in the nails and He would forgive you as you did. He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
And now drought.
And now bloodshed.
And now man exalts himself.
But he won't have that smirk on his face much longer!
No, God's withdrawing of Grace will wipe that little grin away and put him in touch with himself: MURDERER
Yes, there is nothing good in fallen man--he can only be complete in Christ.
And don't go looking for completion in the church or any man-made organization, Beloved. No, you will have to go it alone.
And don't expect them to understand.
And don't expect to win any popularity contests.
And don't expect to prosper because of your decision to give your life to God.
But you receive the riches and eternal goodness of the Kingdom today. Even if they can't see why you're smiling, why you're singing--indeed, why you're rejoicing.
When they come to murder us we forgive them and sing out, Hallelujah! Praise God the Most High!
Jesus is Risen.
Jesus is Risen.
Jesus is Risen!
Today, the Church of Jesus Christ is on the streets, on this internet site, in you, precious one--individually.
Today the Church of Jesus Christ even exists in other religions, other governments, other tribes who don't know the Gospel academically--but it is sown into their hearts and reaps the Truth.
Today, Christ is exalted. He is God. He is the Original Person, from which we were made in His Image.
He is the Creator of Heaven and Earth.
And He can take it all away!
THE LAMB OF GOD
You sit there so smug and self-glorying in your job, with your roll, with your friends and connections--you're going to weep and become insane when you learn the truth.

Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

As May looms ominously, we are reminded of the prophecies given on this site by what is happening in Israel presently. Please pray for Israel and for God's goodness to pour out on all humanity.
For the days are darkening, and season ahead is to be one of the worst in history. Please prepare during April by fasting. I will repost the Holy Spirit Fast For Wounded Souls and give instructions on fasting.
It's a spiritual thing, not a club. It's in you, friend. You'll know it when it happens. He's called the Comforter, a warm blanket of love passes over you, and He starts to lead you and you follow. His voice is louder than your mother shouting at you when you were a child. You know it when it happens. Most have not received the Spirit of God in this way--but if you came here and are sincere (even if you are not sincere) He reached you. You will be woken up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat and the Lord God will Speak to you.
And you will never be the same.
