9. THE VISION WITH JESUS IN THE PRISON
(THE SIXTH SIN OF MISRECOGNITION)
My dear brother! My faithful friend!
Here that I have come to the last vision in this book, which I find more fateful than many of the previous ones. Indeed, every one of us will be paid according to their deed. Lord Himself talks about this in “Revelation”:
“Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy… Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done…” (Revelation 22:11-12)
Do you see that Lord will give to each person according to what they have done? I tell you, this is a very fateful verse, because many have been deceived that Lord will repay them according to what they have said. So, if one is listening to the confessions of the human lips, they will not hear words of man, who consider they will go somewhere other than Heaven.
However, the Truth tells us something else. The Truth of God reminds us through Apostle James that “faith without deeds is dead”. And the most splendid, invigorating and blessing deed, which one may do for Lord Jesus, is this:
To recognize Him in the hearts of God’s children and to serve Him by all their Love, Kindness and Mercy!
Unfortunately, the time, in which we live, is a time of misrecognition! It is a time, when the last Vesuvius roars and terribly shakes, but the inhabitants of Pompeii continue to commit adultery in their pools and to sell by auctions on their market-places. What will the end of all this be? Let us look at history and see that, at the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 after Christ the lava destroyed all the men, and the whirlwind ruined the whole splendour of Pompeii. Here in this way, God’s Anger will destroy the entire last splendour of the satanic world. Since, it will never become God’s one, but will lie in the evil one till the last day. And, when the Day comes, there, at the King of Zion, all the nations will gather together. Then, He will separate them, as a shepherd separates sheep from goats…
Are you ready to hear the Voice of This King, even though He talks to you from the prison? Are you ready to finally understand the last vision of this book?
Then, let Me bring you back to the fiery room of God’s Anger. For, I was already looking at the sixth provoker, the last one. It was a cut head in a silver tray. The view itself suggested to my heart that Lord would relate the last vision to my own life and ministry in some way. That is why I stretched my hand once again, touching the last provoker. Then, everything around me lost size and outlines and I found myself on a very narrow place with high and damp walls. A moment after I had realized that it was a prison, the very place was illuminated by the presence of my Lord. He had passed through the walls of the dungeon, in order to visit me. Here that Jesus began to speak to me, saying:
“Did I not tell you that on the exact place in the book I give you, you will see your own self? Here Stefan! Now, you are in the prison of the whole religious malice and negation, to which you have been exposed by pastors and churches, due to the words and visions I give you. So, what do you think? Why did you touch the silver tray with the cut head that was in the fiery room?”
“Oh, my Lord! This provoker undoubtedly reminds of the sins of Herod and Herodias. Since, Herod closed John the Baptist in a prison, and Herodias desired his head on a tray…”
“Well, who is the Herod of the last time? And who is the Herodias?”
“Oh, Jesus! Herod is the spirit of Antichrist and Herodias is the spirit of Jezebel! Evidently, the combination of the fury and the malice of these two spirits is this religious dungeon, into which I am thrown…”
“That is right, My boy! However, look above at the walls of the cell. Do you see up there a small light window, through which Sunlight can be seen?”
I looked up in the dungeon and I really saw the small window. Although it had bars, they could not prevent the Light of Heaven from going through. This fact made me sincerely happy and I told my Lord:
“Jesus! Even from the prison, Your Power is excellent. But how should I understand Your words towards the men, who could not recognize Your presence in the dungeon? For, You clearly say in Your Word:
“I was … in prison and you did not look after Me…” (Matthew 25:43)
In reply to my words, Jesus embraced me with His hands; then, He raised me up to the small window, telling me:
“See now who stands at the entrance of the dungeon and what words his mouth proclaims…”
I looked through the bars of the small window and I noticed Herodias herself. She seemed to be keeping watch at the entrance of the dungeon. When someone dared to approach this entrance, the sorceress immediately screamed to him:
“Neither dare to visit the man in the dungeon, nor supply any of his needs! If you do this, I will accuse you of sin against the Lord and of rebellion against the king. For, the deed of this man in the prison is already broken and his head is already cut off…”
Listening to the words of the sorceress, I unwillingly touched my neck, as if I wanted to make sure that my head is still in its place. Then, Lord told me:
“Do not accept Jezebel’s words literally! For, she has the ambition to sever each relation between the churches and God’s Prophetic Spirit, in order to keep deceiving them by her theology and sorcery. However, think about those petty-minded and pusillanimous men, who easily bent under her threats, and cast over you, My prophet, the whole human treachery, abuses and disgrace.
How many people have abandoned you, My good and faithful servant?
How many people gave in to the screams of the sorceress and refused to appear the thankfulness, generosity and respect, due to your deed?
How many people, after drinking from the Living Water and eating from the Heavenly Bread, raised their hands to curse you and opened their lips to say “Amen!” to each act of Jezebel’s sorcery?
Will not these men condemn themselves tomorrow? Will not tomorrow be too late for them to remember that the most faithful and Holy servants of the Lord have always passed through a dungeon?
Oh, foolish men, who have forgotten the Love of My Early Church!
Did anyone of you remember that the Church was eager to pray for My Apostle Peter, while he was in prison, thrown there by Herod?
Did anyone of you remember that prophet John did not write “The Revelation” in some office with a secretary in it, but while his hands were chained in the cell on the island of Patmos?
Here I declare against all the pusillanimous, cowardly and treacherous souls, who gave in to Herod and Herodias and did not look after Me in prison!
Depart from Me, you who are cursed! For, I was in prison, and you did not visit Me, although you ate enough Bread and drank enough Water from the source of My prophet! Depart from Me, you who are cursed, for you did not realize that the most faithful and dedicated servants of Heaven always become prisoners for the Lord and always carry the heaviest Cross of Salvation – to crucify their own selves and to sacrifice their life for Lord’s Flock!
And to all My people, I am telling them:
Here from this dungeon, I have given you through My servant one more proof of My Kindness and Mercy – Kindness and Mercy, a moment before the fiery retribution of Father’s Wrath; Kindness and Mercy, a moment before the last Vesuvius erupts and submerges the wicked ones into eternal fire and brimstone!
Blessed are the men, who want to recognize and serve Me from this moment on! The King of Zion will tell them:
“Come, you who are blessed by My Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited Me in, I needed clothes and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you came to visit Me…” (Matthew 25:34-36)
He who begins to live these words of Mine will never taste Anger and death! I pronounced it! I spoke it!”
