Why have you stood afar off, o Lord? Why have you hidden yourself in times of trouble?
The wicked in their pride persecute the poor, but they will be taken in the devices that they have imagined. The wicked, through the pride of their countenance, will not seek after God. God is not in all their thoughts. They will not take on them the name of Christ, nor will have have charity for God's people. The wicked boast of their great feats, and bless the covetous, whom the Lord abhors.
Therefore, when one has been entrusted with the ministry and given the gifts of the Spirit which accompany such, and they forsake the ministry and go after the lusts of their heart, they commit a sin most abominable.
And after they have known and have been taught all these things, if they should transgress and go contrary to that which has been spoken, that they do withdraw themselves from the Spirit of the Lord, it will have no place in them to guide them in wisdom’s paths that they may be blessed, prospered, and preserved.
And from such shall be taken even the light which has been received, and His Spirit shall not strive with them. Therefore, watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and continue in the faith of what you have received from the manifestations of Christ.
But, take courage, my friends. The Lord has heard the desire of the humble. He will prepare their heart and cause their ears to hear.
He will cause their guilt to be swept away, if they but believe that His grace is sufficient for them. For God cannot lie.
And if you say, "I am weak, I am nothing," remember that God has called you good. And remember that it is by the weak things of the earth that the Lord will thresh the nations by the power of His Spirit. For God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and the things which are mighty.
Wherefore, He calls upon the weak things of the world, those who are unlearned and despised, to thresh the nations by the power of His Spirit; and their arm shall be His arm, and He will be their shield and their buckler; and He will gird up their loins; and He will preserve them.
And the poor and the meek shall have the gospel preached unto them, and they shall be looking forth for the time of His coming.
And it is nigh at hand.
