Boris Grisenko: Be attentive to what the Lord says. During these difficult days, in the full sense of the word in the gorges, I dared to ask the Lord to show me a passage from Scripture. He called Jeremiah 33:3:
“Call to Me and I will answer you, show you great and inaccessible things that you do not know.”
This verse has been used so much, including in speculation, but I was told to read it for all of us:
“For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says about the houses of this city and about the houses of the kings of Judah, which are destroyed for rubble and for battle by those who came to fight against the Chaldeans … Behold, I will apply to him a plaster and healing agents, and I will heal them, and I will reveal to them the abundance of the world and the truth, and I will bring back the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel, and I will restore them as in the beginning, and I will cleanse them from all their wickedness, which they have sinned against me, and I will forgive all their iniquities…” (Jeremiah 33:4-8)
Friends, in these trials that we’re going through right now, the Lord is purifying… The Lord is purifying His spiritual vessels, the vessels of the Holy Spirit. The Lord wants us to remember not only external things, but also ourselves and that His love uses even evil circumstances for our good. And above all, in order to cleanse us of the sins that remain and burn out the root of iniquity to the end, so that even its remnants could not affect our lives, our relationships with people, our families, our ministry and, of course, our relationship with the Lord.
If the Lord was pleased to give me this passage of Scripture, then I think that in this difficult time He can give and reveal something new for His children – new spiritual, concerning circumstances, new about the future, new about ourselves and about other people. Therefore, I have a big request to you, if during this stressful time you hear something new from the Lord, be sure to write it down. Even if you are in doubt, write it down and check it with your spirit guides. But don’t be afraid, don’t be embarrassed. Mistakes happen, but if we are afraid of mistakes, we will miss the inaccessible that the Lord wants to make available to His children.
And with regard to our city and other cities that are now under attack, friends, the Lord promised a healing plaster. He promised to stop the defeat and heal the wounds. I believe in this promise. And we can pray like that, we can stand firmly on the basis of this Word of God and other Scriptures and proclaim the end of this crazy war and the restoration of our cities, our villages, our country and all the people of Ukraine. But only on a new, much more holy and righteous level.
