You call for a fast but is it as unto ME? Yes, afflicting your soul will usher in My Presence but must be coupled with a pure heart and clean hands. You draw near to Me but cast aside the broken-hearted and those in need. Do not be double-minded for I will examine your heart for all intents.
The remnant that will represent My Presence will be a glowing throng. The heart of gold that will draw and be drawn to the lost. Examine and judge yourselves so as not to be judged. Purify your hearts with the washing of the Word.
CALL FOR A FAST AS UNTO ME.
“And it came to pass in the fourth year of King Darius, that the word of the Lord came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chislev. Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did you at all fast unto Me, even to Me? Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and show mercy and compassions, every man to his brother; And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the sojourner, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.”
Zechariah 7: 1, 9-10
“Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place? He who has clean hands, and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in.”
Psalms 24: 3, 7
