The Prophet Ezekiel was shown an angel, he was marking those who sigh and cry for all the abominations that were done in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem was the holiest place on the planet at the time.
Ezek 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
Today, there is no cry against the abomination of the land. In fact, it is the opposite, you are considered a bully if you criticize abominable living or even peach against it. Now it is fashionable to except things God calls abominable, and they are excepted by good people’s silence, fear of being considered against everyone or different from those around you.
I see it in the politics of this nation, I see it in the church world, and sadly, even among those that call themselves the very elect of God, by a Message that came, a voice that condemn those things in the strongest of terms.
Even to preach against worldly living, you become someone odd to others that would rather hear greater spiritual things preached about.
What has the world come too? Where is the faith that should believe every Word of God? Are the judgments that came to Jerusalem about to repeat? Where is the love of the Word of God today, a love strong enough to live and die for? Matt 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
The Word of God is our refuge in these difficult times, let us always stand on it.
I ask you, if the above seal is the Holy Ghost, who is sealed? Who is sighing and crying because of the abominations that grow stronger and stronger around us in this final Laodicean age?
The following is a quote from William Branham’s sermon “The Seal of The Christ.”
“I want to ask you something. If that same Angel came to the city, which was the Holy Spirit, dressed in white, like to His purity. If that Angel come to this city tonight and went through the Pentecostal churches [unquote – Message Churches], where in the world would he find men that sighs, and cries, and begs all night long in prayer for the abomination that's done in the city. Who would he mark?”
