“NEW research claims Aucklanders blame laziness and complacency as to why they’re not ready for a natural disaster. The Colmar Brunton survey report says Aucklanders believe being prepared is important, but ‘it won’t happen to me’ mentality stops many from making emergency plans or survival kits. “Many people think we’re never going to face an emergency situation in Auckland,” says Harry O’Rourke, group controller of the Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group.” (Source: Howick and Pakuranga Times 2008)
When I came across the above article in the news, my thoughts turned almost immediately to the correlation I see in the world today. As a minister for Christ and Father Yahweh, my eyes have been opened to these correlations and one of them is the laziness and complacency that has blinded so many from the truth of what is going on right before their eyes. It comes in many ways, from those who simply don’t believe in an afterlife, to those who do but follow a different religion or set of beliefs and to those who are Christians but who hold fast to false-teachings. Some complacently believe that judgment will never come; others believe it will come but they will not be judged either because they do not believe in the Almighty God, or because they have been misled by false shepherds into thinking their salvation is secure via various man-made religious ideals.
Isaiah 32:9- 11
Stand up, you complacent women;
listen to me.
Pay attention to what I say,
you overconfident daughters.
10 In a little more than a year
you overconfident ones will shudder,
for the vintage will fail
and the harvest will not come.
11 Shudder, you complacent ones;
tremble, you overconfident ones!
Strip yourselves bare
and put [ sackcloth] about your waists.
Amos 6:1 [ Woe to the Complacent ] Woe to those who are at ease in Zion and to those who feel secure on the hill of Samaria— the notable people in this first of the nations, those the house of Israel comes to.
There have been past judgments on the world. Two that come to mind are the account of the great flood in Genesis and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. These accounts are found in the scriptures and act as examples of the past and also instruction on the future. Even today, judgments are being metted out around the world in the form of natural disasters that make up the Great Tribulation.
As these natural disasters continue, you will inevitably see and read of instances in which people do not heed the warnings from local officials. Just today, September 13, 2008, as Hurricane Ike slammed into the gulf coast of Texas, it was reported that 140,000 people did not heed the mandatory evacuation of Galveston. All during the night, these same people who did not heed the warning called 911 calling for help because their homes were flooded and they were told by operators that they could not be helped.
When Ike had passed through the news reporters marveled at the magnitude of “Mother Nature”, not realizing that “Mother Nature” is in fact Father Yahweh’s wrath and that what happened in Galveston is only a precursor to what will happen when Father’s judgment is fully metted out against creation. These complacent people, who are overconfident and have not heeded the warnings, will call out for help when they see Father’s wrath being poured out upon them – and they will not be helped because it will be too late.
If what I speak seems harsh to you, take into consideration that you are being warned and informed ahead of time out of love so that you can escape the wrath. Also take into consideration that much of the truth has been candy-coated and watered down by the false shepherds of the day who do not want to speak of Father’s wrath because it makes their congregations uncomfortable or because they may be seen as “gloom and doom preachers”, lose popularity, or lose tithes. They want their congregations to believe that you don’t have to do anything (laziness) except believe the falsehoods that lead to complacency. These false shepherds do Christ’s flock an injustice in that they have a hand in causing the laziness and complacency of their congregations and whether or not they realize the dangers of complacency I do not know, but what I do know is that it can lead to the loss of eternal lives.
Also take into consideration that Dawn Lucifer has been working on leading people away from the Truth and Light for sometime now – well over 6,000 years. He has worked through many who have succeeded in tainting the truth with falsehoods and half-truths which have blinded much of the world so that they walk in darkness via laziness and complacency and are unaware that their eternal lives are in danger. These half-truths and falsehoods are more than I could possibly list, but the truth is that all people are judged by what is really in their hearts. The requirements for salvation are twofold. In order to obtain Eternal Life you must have (1) An Acceptance of Christ as Lord and Savior and (2) A Good Heart Condition.
Those who wish to have eternal life must declare Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior. This must be done in order to be one with His coming Kingdom. We realize that many will challenge our faith and the faith of others who also declare Jesus to be Lord. They will say that we must meet certain requirements of water baptism, a belief in the Trinity and other man-made religious ideals. If those people have the right heart condition, they will see the Light. If not, they will remain opposed to what is ministered to them. That is their Free Will choice. Even if they claim to be foot-step followers of Christ, they will be deemed not worthy of Salvation unless they exhibit the Holy Spirit from within them. If they believe falsehoods about Christ, cling to their man-made religious belief systems and reject the truth will be marked accordingly by the Cherubic Order of Angels.
The prophets of the scriptures who warned of impending wrath were not warnings for only those of their time period, but also for those of us living in End Times and they should not be ignored or watered down. It is not a comfortable thing to warn people of impending judgment and destruction, but it is a necessary thing because when one is in service to Father in doing Her will to warn the masses of what is to come, one must speak loudly and clearly so that all will hear. The message that I seek to share with you now is that to become complacent in your salvation can be a very dangerous thing and can actually lead to your eternal death. This is the truth, and in all honesty it should make you uncomfortable to hear because we should all be searching our hearts and thinking about whether or not we are truly worthy for salvation and admittance into Christ’s Kingdom or if changes are needed that come from within.
A final word…The Kingdom Message of Salvation is a message delivered out of love and concern. Do not complacently ignore, but instead heed the warning that is being shared with you via Christ’s ministry and this message of salvation. If you have not already, accept our loving Lord Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior and prepare your heart by accepting truth and humbling yourself and casting away the falsehoods and half-truths and seeking the full truth and light of Father Yahweh and Christ Jesus.
