    Please note: It's never too late to repent but there comes a period when it's too late to repent in order to avoid the consequences of our sins. It's very important to clarify this!

    A lesson while standing in the office of a prophet:
    In the Growing Spiritually - The Truth About Offense, teaching video I spoke about how the Lord put it into my heart months back to write a teaching about the anger and wrath of God when I recorded the teaching Bible Study: Revelation 14. As soon as I spoke that during the video, the Holy Spirit told me the time has come. That night the Holy Spirit told me to write it the following day, letting me know that it's a priority. On top of that he wanted me to record the teaching Territory: Reaping What We Sow. I also had other personal stuff that I had to take care of. Despite all what I had to do, I did have time to write the teaching but I chose to put it off to write a teaching that the Holy Spirit didn't tell me to write. I kept getting distracted! I tried going to sleep that morning (I am still adjusting to the new time zone) but the Holy Spirit kept waking me up. You guys, I had been sleeping in my car for 3 months, and so I have to adjust to knowing where the presence of God is during this new season. I was wondering why I kept waking up. God spoke to me and said "I am with you" and then he said "make your decision wisely". The make your decision wisely freaked me out a bit. I knew something was going on in the spirit, but I just didn't know what. I asked the Holy Spirit what to pray for and he said reverse death. I thought that was so weird but I did it. I then had to pray against the spirit of fear because the enemy used this opportunity to try to put thoughts in my head about someone in my family dying.

    Anyways, it wasn't until now (I wrote this sentence last) that I realized why the Holy Spirit told me to reverse the spirit of death. The consequences of sin is death according to Romans 6:23. I was in disobedience and that's why he told me to reverse death. I am literally finding this out now because as I was writing this, I was reflecting on how easily I was so distracted that I couldn't see all the confirmations that the Holy Spirit was showing me. I cried and asked the Holy Spirit for mercy, and grace and to remove the consequences of my disobedience and he said it's been reversed, and when he said that, I remembered the prayer that he had me pray this morning, "reverse death". I knew when I couldn't sleep that it was God waking me, but I totally forgot this same thing happened when I accepted an interview during my refiners fire, and the Holy Spirit def. told me not to apply to any jobs, and it also happened when the Holy Spirit told me to record the video Eternal Life: Do I know Him and I held it off. Restlessness is a sign that we are disobedient to the rhema word of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit told me to record the teaching titled Distractions, Doubts and Discouragement, and then told me to read Zechariah 13, and verse 2 stuck out to me. Note: I went through the refiners fire to remove the impurity in me (delayed obedience which is disobedience, anger, envy, and offense). I still didn't not connect the pieces despite the Holy Spirit's attempts until....the Holy Spirit led me to watching a teaching of a prophecy.

    I thought the sermon was just going to be a sermon but the pastor said he wanted to share a prophecy and then teach about it. This pastor was prophesying, and a lot of what he said reminded me of the prophecy the Lord led me to share months back. The Holy Spirit kept bringing to my mind the fact that I still hadn't written the teaching about the anger and wrath of God, and at first I was trying to push it back until I realized, my flesh is saying no to writing the teaching, the enemy wouldn't want me to write a teaching, so it must be the Holy Spirit convicting me. Get this, I paused the video to watch write this teaching. After writing this teaching post, I press play and the very next thing that is mention is Isaiah and Jeremiah. This is significant because I am literally reading the book of Isaiah. Additionally, because I used Jeremiah as an example in the graphic above to explain the anger, wrath, woe and judgment of God, this is not a coincidence. It wasn't until I actually started writing this teaching that I realized all that I am mentioning now. On top of that, I received additional revelation about something the Holy Spirit told me approximately 3 to 4 weeks ago and approximately 6 months ago. 3 to 4 weeks I asked the Holy Spirit a question, I believe the question I asked was along the lines of what do you want me to see during my next season, the season of rain and he said one word 'obedience.' I didn't understand what he meant, and at first I started to panic because I was still living in my car and I thought oh no, have I been disobedient to God and is this going to prolong the refiners fire? I now understand why the Holy Spirit said obedience. We know that Jesus learned obedience from the things he suffered according to Hebrews 5:8. I too had to learn obedience from the things that I suffered. In December of 2018 God the father told me that he was promoting me (back then I didn't know what that meant. I didn't know I could be promoted into a different office). The Holy Spirit told me around February that my ministry will be a prophetic ministry (something along those lines), and before the refiners fire, I was told that I am being moved into a new season (btw, I didn't know it would be the refiners fire, another season of trials and tribulations), and he said during this season he will teach me, as to prepare for me for the office of a prophet. I obviously didn't know that the Holy Spirit was going to use a trial, let alone the refiners fire to prepare me for this office. I thought I'd be prophesying at the church I attended lol.

    You guys, I am a bit happy the the Holy Spirit tells me things in bits and pieces because if he would have told me all that I would had to go through to learn obedience without delay, then I would have opted out. Before the refiners fire, I use to obey but with delay. As I mentioned in the video What is it like to be promoted in the five-fold, spiritually? the office of a prophet is a lot different then the office of a shepherd (pastor), and teacher. It is a lot of spiritual work, and God's expectation is so much higher. There's a level of excellency needed, meaning he wants his prophets to be on point in terms of obedience. Before the refiners fire, I wasn't ready at all because I had delayed obedience which is disobedience. Now, the fear of the Lord is in my heart, and I don't want to have to go through the refiners fire again so that I can learn obedience, so now, I love on-time obedience. I figure I'd give you the background, since we are also a teaching ministry.

    Now to the teaching ...
    In speaking about the anger, wrath, woe and judgement of God, what I do not want to do is make us scared of God. What I do want to do is make us aware that we should fear God. Godly fear is reverence, it's not the same of worldly fear (to be scared of God). In the Understanding Revelation 14 I speak about the anger, wrath, woe & judgement of God. In this teaching post I am going to go into detail. You maybe wondering why is learning about the anger, woe, wrath and judgement of God is important? I want us to be able to understand the book of Revelation (prophecy). Additionally, I want us to be able to better understand the Epistles, the whole bible, including the prophetic. The Apostles in the New Testament understood the anger, wrath, woe and judgement of God which is why in their letters to the church they spoke about it repeatedly. In the following scriptures in the NT, you'll see that it's spoken about over and over and over again: Romans 2:5, Romans 1:18, Romans 12:19, Romans 5:9, Romans 13:141 Thessalonians 5:91 Thessalonians 1:10Ephesians 5:6, Revelation 6:16-17John 3:36, Colossians 3:16, 2 Peter 2:9.

    When we read the old testament usually (not always), the order is as follows:
    1. The prophetic word from the Lord is first 
    2. Then the anger of God is second
    3. Then the wrath is third
    4. Then woes are thirds (the reason for God's anger and wrath)
    5. Judgement is next
    6. Then restoration of the remnant is last
     "Discipline me, Lord, but only in due measure— not in your anger, or you will reduce me to nothing. Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the peoples who do not call on your name." -  Jeremiah 10:24, 25

    What is God's anger?
    • Anger is defined as a "strong feeling of displeasure."
    • The anger of God is best described Nahum 1:2-6, it reads as follows:
     "The Lord is a jealous and avenging God; the Lord is avenging and wrathful; the Lord takes vengeance on his adversaries and keeps wrath for his enemies. The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and makes it dry; he dries up all the rivers; Bashan and Carmel wither; the bloom of Lebanon withers. The mountains quake before him; the hills melt; the earth heaves before him, the world and all who dwell in it. Who can stand before his indignation? Who can endure the heat of his anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, and the rocks are broken into pieces by him."
    What is God's wrath?
    • Wrath is defined as "extreme anger".
    • The wrath of God is best described Nahum 1:2-6, it reads as follows:
     "The Lord is a jealous and avenging God; the Lord is avenging and wrathful; the Lord takes vengeance on his adversaries and keeps wrath for his enemies. The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and makes it dry; he dries up all the rivers; Bashan and Carmel wither; the bloom of Lebanon withers. The mountains quake before him; the hills melt; the earth heaves before him, the world and all who dwell in it. Who can stand before his indignation? Who can endure the heat of his anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, and the rocks are broken into pieces by him."
    What is God's woes?
    • A woe is defined as "things that cause sorrow or distress; troubles." When we read about woes in the bible, we should know it is the reason for the anger and wrath of God and that the woes are directed towards a person or group of people, and is the specific troubles that occur as a result of their disobedience to God.
    • An example of the woes of God is best described in Isaiah 10:2-4Matthew 23:13-37 and Jeremiah 23:1 it reads as follows:
    "Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches? Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives or fall among the slain. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised." 
    “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves. “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.’ Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold? And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obliged to perform it.’ Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift? Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it. He who swears by the temple, swears by it and by Him who dwells in it. And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits on it.  “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.  Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.  “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’ “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation." 
    “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” declares the Lord."
    What is God's judgement?
    • Judgement is defined as a misfortune or calamity viewed as a divine punishment.
    • There are four types of dreadful judgement according to Ezekiel 14:21 & 2 Chronicles 20:9 “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments—sword and famine and wild beasts and plague—to kill its men and their animals!
    A good example of the judgement of God is shown in Amos 2, it reads as follows:
      Judgment on Moab Thus says the Lord: “For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because he burned the bones of the king of Edom to lime.  But I will send a fire upon Moab, And it shall devour the palaces of Kerioth; Moab shall die with tumult, With shouting and trumpet sound. And I will cut off the judge from its midst, And slay all its princes with him,” Says the Lord.  
      Judgment on Judah  Thus says the Lord: “For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they have despised the law of the Lord, And have not kept His commandments. Their lies lead them astray, Lies which their fathers followed. But I will send a fire upon Judah, And it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.”  
      Judgment on Israel Thus says the Lord: “For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they sell the righteous for silver, And the poor for a pair of sandals. They pant after the dust of the earth which is on the head of the poor, And pervert the way of the humble. A man and his father go in to the same girl, To defile My holy name. They lie down by every altar on clothes taken in pledge, And drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god. “Yet it was I who destroyed the Amorite before them, Whose height was like the height of the cedars, And he was as strong as the oaks; Yet I destroyed his fruit above And his roots beneath. Also it was I who brought you up from the land of Egypt, And led you forty years through the wilderness, To possess the land of the Amorite. I raised up some of your sons as prophets, And some of your young men as Nazirites. Is it not so, O you children of Israel?” Says the Lord. “But you gave the Nazirites wine to drink, And commanded the prophets saying, ‘Do not prophesy!’ “Behold, I am weighed down by you, As a cart full of sheaves is weighed down. Therefore flight shall perish from the swift, The strong shall not strengthen his power, Nor shall the mighty deliver himself; He shall not stand who handles the bow, The swift of foot shall not escape, Nor shall he who rides a horse deliver himself. The most courageous men of might Shall flee naked in that day,” Says the Lord.
