Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Messiah,
With utmost humility of heart I share with you a word of the Lord, for Ireland, which I received February 13, 2017.
“The time has come. This is the day – time will delay no more! You will see My judgments come upon this land. They will begin with the leaders, in My sanctuary, those who refuse to bow to My rod of correction. It will not be a good day for them – many will refuse. I will remove them. Many will be handed over to the destruction of their flesh that their soul may be saved. My heart is mercy – My judgments are My mercy! For those who yield to My rod – it will be a good day for them. It will still be painful. They will feel My discipline upon them for great is their error, great has been their pride, great has been their disobedience, great has been their rebellion, therefore it will be painful for them when they feel My rod cross over them, examining them. I only correct those whom I love. If they yield and do not take offense with Me – with My discipline, they will be used mightily for My kingdom in this nation in the days to come. Daughter warn My people, fear not man, but the One Who can destroy both the soul and the body.”
What does it mean to pass under the rod?
It is a close scrutiny of works done – is it your plans or God’s plans that you are carrying out? What have you done and been doing and where have you been (Ezekiel 20:33-38, John 8:28-29). The rod is for two purposes; punishing or ruling.
