Report From The Tower
“Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also THE AXE IS LAID UNTO THE ROOT OF THE TREES: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”
As I checked the daily news, my attention was caught by this title:
Axes against evil:
1 base's plan to bludgeon terrorists
Army fort in Arizona to issue 'ax handles' to guards as part of new security measures
Yes, the natural things are speaking of the invisible.
Repentance, and not some word only variety, but real, honest and deep repentance is what the Holy Spirit is seeking and has been seeking. He has been pointed at tomorrow, May 24th, and has let us know that it has been an important, 11:59 type of time to take serious and even drastic measures to cleanse ourselves from iniquity and evil.
I have the image in my mind of an axe handle being taken against the evil in my life. Have I buffeted my body as I should have? I hope that I find that my labor has been approved by the only one whose estimation of it counts.
And yet, it is not the axe handle that John speaks of. It is the sharp blade that is against the very root of the tree. Trees are beginning to come down. The warning has gone forth. Axes sans blades may be used against terrorists, but the Lord whom you seek is bringing an axe complete with blade.
“Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance” is what the forerunner said. According to biblical timeline experts, John spoke these words in the very same year that the ministry of Jesus was inaugurated. He preached a very short time apparently, until such time as he spoke those immortal words: “Behold the lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world”.
One ministry began. Another came to an end. There was no time left to get it right. Jesus was “on the scene”, and every man who met him held eternal fate in his hands. What would each man do with Jesus Christ?
I sense that we are in such a time now. The axe is laid to the root of the tree. The time of examination is at hand.
We have had many words of prophecy over the last month, and have seen many prophetic images. In the interest of keeping this article short, and to the point, God has used a multitude of prophetic messengers to deliver a simple message:
God has shown his prophets where the axe is aimed first. The witchcraft and manipulation of Jezebel, and the deeds and doctrines of the Nicolaitans, are first on the chopping block. The church was warned almost 2000 years ago about tolerating Jezebel, and her enticement of the church through fornication and adultery, yet the Nicolaitan churches where pastor/teachers have hoarded all rule and control to themselves have given fertile soil to her teachings. That Jezebel spirit has enticed people all over this land, and indeed it has spread throughout the world wherever our American missionaries have trod.
Fornication? Adultery? Where you say? SPIRITUAL FORNICATION! SPIRITUAL ADULTERY! The worship of the god of mammon, money and materialism, power, beauty and fame. And mixed with all of these: toleration of impurity. These have marked our age here at our outpost at the end of time.
Repent! The refining fire of God is at hand. You as the spiritual descendants of Abraham are not exempt. You must bring forth fruits that are worthy of repentance. If you do not, you will be hewn down.
THE AXE IS LAID UNTO THE ROOT OF THE TREES.
