The Sword of slaughter is at hand
Ezekiel 21:14 [ AMP ] -
Therefore, son of man, prophesy and smite your hands together and let the sword be doubled, yes, trebled in intensity--the sword for those to be overthrown and pierced through; it is the sword of great slaughter which encompasses them [so that none can escape, even by entering into their inner chambers].
Ezekiel 21:13,14 [ NIV ] -
"So then, son of man, prophesy and strike your hands together. Let the sword strike twice, even three times. It is a sword for slaughter- a sword for great slaughter, closing in on them from every side.
The Men of God through whom the Word of God came, like Jeremiah at times felt when they spoke they did more harm than good and wished to shut up. But there was fire in their bones [nature] which did not allow them to, they had to do what was to be done according to the Lord's instructions.
Today the Lord is likewise asking us to do something which we may not feel good or right. The message today is asking us not to Prophesy [speak] against not anyone else but the sanctuary. This sanctuary is not the Sanctuary of God but the sanctuary which considers its self righteous and also does evil.
Please understand Jesus is not a Brand Name that all things which have Jesus written on it, is certified by God. Since long man has been deceived is every way possible from knowing the Truth [Word of God]. Some of the tools used by this sanctuary are traditions [with small t which makes one feel righteous not with capital T which helps built faith], authority and social longing [being accepted as part of a larger congregation].
It is time that the Truth reaches to the real people of God; the true Christians. People who call themselves Christians and live a life contrary to God's Word will soon have to face the Sword.
Like a knife, if is a surgeon's knife can save lives but can also take lives if used otherwise; so is the Word of God which can give life but also hold power to destroy all that is not of the Kingdom of God.
So people of God who have fire in your bones open your mouth and prophesy against this deceiving sanctuary.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, your Word says since long your true Saints have been suffering due to this sanctuary which works contrary to your Word. Lord, many have become martyrs due to opposing the people who rule this sanctuary. But Lord the time is come and is now, as instructed by You we speak against this sanctuary and rebuke it. Let not a brick stand and all its glory be turned to ash. We curse its commerce and make it void of its riches...
This we speak in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Ezekiel 21:1-5 [NIV]
1 The word of the Lord came to me:
2 "Son of man, set your face against Jerusalem and preach against the sanctuary. Prophesy against the land of Israel
3 and say to her: 'This is what the Lord says: I am against you. I will draw my sword from its scabbard and cut off from you both the righteous and the wicked.
4 Because I am going to cut off the righteous and the wicked, my sword will be unsheathed against everyone from south to north.
5 Then all people will know that I the Lord have drawn my sword from its scabbard; it will not return again.'
Ezekiel 21:18-23 [NIV]
18 The word of the Lord came to me:
19 "Son of man, mark out two roads for the sword of the king of Babylon to take, both starting from the same country. Make a signpost where the road branches off to the city.
20 Mark out one road for the sword to come against Rabbah of the Ammonites and another against Judah and fortified Jerusalem.
21 For the king of Babylon will stop at the fork in the road, at the junction of the two roads, to seek an omen: He will cast lots with arrows, he will consult his idols, he will examine the liver.
22 Into his right hand will come the lot for Jerusalem, where he is to set up battering rams, to give the command to slaughter, to sound the battle cry, to set battering rams against the gates, to build a ramp and to erect siege works.
23 It will seem like a false omen to those who have sworn allegiance to him, but he will remind them of their guilt and take them captive.
Revelation 18:1-21 [NIV]
1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
