111 Year Anniversary of San Francisco Earthquake in April: 2 warning dreams given prophetically in Jan. 2017 of future upcoming quake (with update)

Notice the 111: “He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him,”    John 1:11.

Below are some extended excerpts from King’s April 4, 1967 Riverside Church speech. We just passed the 50 year anniversary. (M.L.K., Jr. was assassinated exactly one year later on April 4, 1968.) Note his warning to a church which would become progressively more “lukewarm” in God’s eyes over this last half century.

“The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.”– Martin Luther King Jr.

God’s New Testament, including Revelation, warns of a time when the modern “progressive” church would indeed become an irrelevant social club who does not pursue Holy Spirit, righteousness, prophecy, prayer and holiness. Notice the end result: the church then lacks moral and spiritual authority. It’s leaders pursue business and growth models instead of holiness and sanctification rituals and lives led purely. The church forgets that God does not look at outward appearances, but at individual hearts. Repentance and a turning from absolute sin is skipped over. Prayer is short and perfunctory…not people on their knees calling out to God. Services are pre-planned and printed. Holy Spirit is unfriended like a social media event. Oh, how the Father’s heart is grieved at the masses, including many professing Christians, who are following their leaders blindly. Oh how He is grieved at “shepherds” functioning more like “wolves” as they pick and choose through scripture while leaving out so much that is necessary for the people to be pure and blameless before God when he comes for a people bride for his Son, Jesus Christ.

Jesus has been speaking repeated warnings through his prophets that judgement will begin in the house of God. He does not live in buildings but in individual hearts. You are not to love God more than you love the world with all its distractions and lures. God needs John the Baptist’s who will announce the grand and glorious Day of the Lord which approaches. Make way a straight path. Beware of curves and a broad road that leads down to abject sorrow not the narrow road with Jesus as the gate which leads up to Father God.

“But put ye on the LORD Jesus Christ,”   Romans 13:14.

“Finally, be strong in the LORD and in the power of His might.  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes,”   Ephesians 6:10-11.

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light,”   Romans 13:11-12..

“And God answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain on tablets, that he may run that reads it.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie.  Though it delays, wait for it, because it will surely come, it will not be late,”   Habakkuk 2:2.
