Isaiah 1:13 was the first of two scriptures given to me by the Lord today.
“Therefore bring no more vain oblations, incense is an abomination to Me, the New Moons and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with it, it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.”
Another translation says: “Bring your worthless offerings no more; your incense is detestable to Me — your New Moons, Sabbaths, and convocations. I cannot endure iniquity in a solemn assembly.”
This verse states that God refuses pointless offerings, burning incense and all the other (Old Testament) things that are required to make an offering acceptable to Him IF the hearts of those making the offering are sinful and full of iniquity. He is using this verse to tell us that even if the times have changed our worship can still be rejected for being worthless- what does that mean? It means anyone bringing outward ‘acts’ of so-called worship to God yet the approach is irreverent, improper, or hiding secret iniquity in their personal life is not acceptable.
We no longer offer animals or burn incense as acceptable worship- now it is to lift our hands (Lamentations 3:41, Psalm 134:2), to tear our hearts (i.e. be heartbroken) over our sin and the larger sin of the world (Joel 2:13), to pursue peace and holiness (Hebrews 14:12), to forgive so we can be forgiven (Matthew 6:15)- there are so many ways the Bible lets us know that “acceptable worship” to God means maintaining a right and holy life before God. It’s a WHOLE BODY CONCEPT, not just singing songs on specific days or giving money to church; it’s about bringing a worthwhile offering of our ENTIRE LIFE to lay on the altar as our basic and rightful service to God.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” – (Romans 12:1)
This morning there were many, many things the Lord flooded my mind with- more than I could possibly type or even cover in the videos for these prophecies. How people think anything will do as “worship”- they believe they can give the Lord literally ANY OLD THING OR CHEAP THING and then say “I have worshipped God.” It was a lot of sensory information, people sitting in church half-dressed, irritated if a prayer cloth is given to them to cover up. They leave and say the church has “No love!” or complain that they were judged when they were “only trying to give Jesus my heart!” Jesus wants your heart AND He wants your breasts properly covered too, keep that in mind.
I can’t explain these other visions properly, it was a lot of information swirling together- flashes of things seen:
A row of women in expensive hats, black women sitting in a pew in a black church and every last one of them was wearing an outfit that showed a large amount of cleavage. All the vision camera showed me was a row of pretty, colourful hats and exposed breasts down the entire row.
A man seeing the offering plate approaching, he reached into his wallet ahead of time and flipped among the bills trying to decide if a 5 or dollar bill was better to give. I didn’t see what he chose but he dropped something in the tray, stuffed the full wallet back in his pocket, and sat peacefully. It was laid on my heart how people open their wallets and pass over the large bills and drop the 1 and 5 dollar bills in the offering tray, then get on their knees and ask God to make things work out so they can win contracts worth millions. They do not see the irony or hypocrisy in this at all.
Many impressions of wayward children- young girls glued to cellphones and mirrors worshipping themselves, older boys with game headsets yelling profanities at the TV while their parents have no clue that each curse word is a nail in their unsaved child’s coffin and a millstone around their own necks, for not “training up a child in the way he should go, so that when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Church children forced to memorize tons of scripture, able to parrot the Bible but not given any real guidance in knowing who God really is– having a form of godliness with no power. I saw the children as vines growing up quick and strong near the side of a house, then a very great heat came and the vines dried up just as quickly and withered because they had no root in themselves; they withered and peeled away from the house and in real life I saw many “church children” grew up and threw God away and went into the world.
SO MUCH SEXUAL SIN, OVERFLOWING, FLOODING ACROSS THE NATION LIKE A BACKED UP TOILET.
Impressions of envy, malice, murder, jealousy, gossip, covetousness- small, hidden daggers in the heart spreading through people like poison mushrooms, growing in darkness as they smile and say “Bless you, how are you today?” I saw many things and tried to net as many of them as I could.
At times my mind is pressured with seeing what God sees, it can be overwhelming especially when it all floods in at the same time as it happened today. PEOPLE OFFER GOD DEFILED WORSHIP YET INSIST HE SHOULD BE HAPPY WITH IT: “GOD, ARE YOU NOT BLESSED? ARE YOU NOT PLEASED? WE HAVE DONE ALL THIS FOR YOU.”
Yet He shows the so-called ‘worship’ from His perspective and you want to faint with sorrow that all the noise, drama and carrying on is hiding false sacrifice, cheap offerings that cost the soul and spirit nothing to give. A little of our time, a little of our money, rarely our best and certainly not our whole selves laid out saying ‘Lord search me and take away everything that makes me unfit for the Heavenly kingdom.’
The Church is SICK but looks healthy on Youtube and TV – it is full of lies, manipulation, deceit and scandal with only a few true leaders holding the line against the end times lawlessness that has already crept in among us. Pastors are throwing away time-tested exhortation and rewriting the entire coda of scripture to make their sermons ‘pop’ for the increasingly young demographic in the Body- more focus on emotions, honing in on “What Jesus can do for YOU!!” instead of teaching these children how to die to themselves, how to stop being so vain, SELF-CENTERED, or being the type of people who can only hear and process information if it’s uniquely personalized FOR EACH ONE OF THEM.
Is Jesus’ sacrifice on that bitter Cross not proof enough of personal love? What more needs to be proven than that?
The Bible preaches sacrifice of self-identity in order to take up the identity of Christ, yet it’s taught now like some kind of ‘personality test’ that can be uniquely ‘tweaked’ to YOU. You hear sermons all day now focused on how God loved YOU so much He lingered over the colour of your eyes, the colour of your hair etc, when in truth God wants us to become people who grow up and realize that everyone has eye and hair colour, what we should be working on is our Good Samaritan skill set instead. The laser focus on “SELF!!” that rules this world has permeated the church too, such that we’re less interested in sacrifice, steadfastness in the race, endurance and cultivating undying loyalty to God that will sustain us in times of trial. Now all we want to hear is how much God loves us “as we are”, and how little is needed for us to win and keep His favour.
Well… the storyline is different here on The Master’s Voice.
“He must increase, but I must decrease” said John the Baptist, demonstrating a perfect grasp of Bible truth, that once we find out who Jesus is all the “we” in us must begin its journey of death at the Cross so HE (the Spirit of God) can begin filling and shaping us into the image of the gorgeous, resurrected Christ. (John 3:30)
“And he said to them all: If any man will come after me let him deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow me.” (Luke 9:23)
Below is the direct blueprint Christians ought to be studying and working to see fulfilled in their own lives, yet how many of us are actually doing this with ALL WE HAVE, according to the power of Grace and the living Spirit who works and wills in us to do what God commands?
The New Man
This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, that you put on the new man which was created according to God IN TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS. – (Ephesians 4:17- 24)
True righteousness and holiness is a tall order, very tall, impossibly tall without the help of Jesus.
God said in a nutshell that though this nation claims to be a Christian nation, the home of faith, He will no longer accept prayers for America as a nation nor regard the abominations and pretense she calls “offerings and worship.” This is Isaiah 1:13 as it was explained to me today, even though I saw many linked things where I couldn’t capture all of it enough to put into words. It was one big picture of many things, many sins swirling around 3 main visions. Especially the feeling and picture of half naked women in the churches of America was so strong, an impression of poorly covered breasts, exposed arms in tank tops, shorts, bare legs, angry faces if asked to leave or to cover up, it was just…
All wrong, absolutely wrong, POORLY OFFERED TRASHY THINGS dared to be labelled as “worship.” That’s the only way I can put it. This is the first scripture. Thank you for reading.
