不久之前，我这个老年人在医务室的医药箱看到了镜子中的我。我的牙齿已破损，我看起来像烂掉了一样。我曾经英俊的脸孔己被痛苦刻蚀。我看起来像一具尽力在喘一口气的 体。医生给我热开水以减轻我的疾病，让我稍微缓和一下。在这里我们没有任何医药。 我是如此的为自己悲伤，但庆幸我的母亲已死去。不然我现在的景况会让她痛苦致死。当我走回我的小囚房，圣灵对我说：“不要如此沮丧，我会显示给你看我所看到的你。”
所以，自己以为站得稳的，须要谨慎，免得跌倒。(林前 10: 12)
务要谨守，儆醒。因为你们的仇敌魔鬼，如同吼叫的狮子，遍地游行，寻找可吞 的人。(彼前 5: 8)
我知道你的行为，你也不冷也不热；我巴不得你或冷或热。你既如温水，也不冷也不热，所以我必从我口中把你吐出去。你说：我是富足，已经发了财，一样都不缺；却不知道你是那困苦、可怜、贫穷、瞎眼、赤身的。 我劝你向我买火炼的金子，叫你富足；又买白衣穿上，叫你赤身的羞耻不露出来；又买眼药擦你的眼睛，使你能看见。(启 3: 15-18)
凡我所疼爱的，我就责备管教他；所以你要发热心，也要悔改。(启 3: 19)
倘若守望的人见刀剑临到，不吹角，以致民不受警戒，刀剑来杀了他们中间的一个人，他虽然死在罪孽之中，我却要向守望的人讨他丧命的罪。(结 33: 6)
To My American cousins in Christ:
It's frigid cold here this morning. My cell is unheated and I cannot feel my legs. This is a blessing. Today I will be beaten and tortured before breakfast and I will not feel the pain as much. Numbness from the cold makes the tortures bearable. I will have to remember to scream on que so as not to upset the guards. I wonder if they are as bored with my cries as I am with their beatings? In prison everything becomes routine, even torture.
I prayed for you again. I have much time on my hands here and thankfully no blood. I once heard a rumor that the churches in America each had a complete Bible of their very own. Could such a thing be true? Once at a house church meeting, just before my last arrest- how many years has it been?- I actually held a page of scripture in my own hands and was allowed to read it to the church. I myself was holding the word of God. I knew then that I was favored of the Lord. Such a great honor.
In my dream today I went to Heaven again and one of the Splendid Ones spoke with me about you. He showed me the great Russian bear- not at all dead as you have supposed- hibernating, rejuvenating, readying to attack you. Her sharp paws were unsheathed ready to slice and maul you into submission.
"Why do they disarm?" I asked.
The Splendid one replied, "They are at ease in Zion but soon will be at ease no more."
"I don't understand," I replied a bit confused.
"Many saints of the West have become wealthy and do not know that they are really wretched and poor and miserable and blind and naked. They usually equate the blessing of God with having money. They do not know of his true riches," said the glorious being.
Then Jesus himself entered the place where we were talking. All bowed low and worshipped but I wept bitterly. Though He knew the answer, he asked me why I wept so. "Lord," I said, "Your sufferings only lasted a few days and mine have gone on for years. I have suffered much more than you. Why?
With great compassion, He seemed to look right through me ( I felt him do this).
He said, "Son, I have allowed you to sip suffering in small swallows so that your faith would not fail. I swallowed the dregs of the poison of sin whole. It was torture you could never understand and it would have undone you. You have drank of my cup. Be patient a while longer."
My dear cousins, you are not prepared for the sufferings to come. Lose this world now and let its claim fall away. If you gain Christ you will lose nothing important. Not long ago I saw my reflection for the first time in years from a medicine chest in the infirmary. My teeth have rotted and I look decayed. My once handsome face is etched with pain. I look like a corpse straining to draw breath. The doctor gave me hot water to drink for my illness- we have no medicines here, it helped a little.
I felt so sad for myself and was glad my mother was dead. My condition would have killed her. As I headed back to my cell, the Holy Spirit said, "Don't despair. I will show you how you look to me."
I suddenly saw my image refected in the ice. The bumps of the icicles took the lines away and I looked young and alive again. The best part was the snow. It gave the impression that I was dressed in a white robe of righteousness like the saints in Heaven wear. It was delightful！
My smiles shocked the guards. I can only explain that He was with me.
Dear American cousins, we are praying for you so that when night crashes on your land, and it will, your faith will not fail. Put the cross back in your Gospel preaching and prepare your people to carry it or they will fall away. It is very cold here. I am praying for a blanket or some rags to keep warm with.
A nameless prisoner
His ambassador in chains
Repent and turn back to the Lord！ We must stand up for truth. We must stand up for righteousness. We must put Holy Spirit filled preaching back into the church. No more soft and fluffy messages. We must stand up for the truth of God's Word. And that means all of it (not picking and choosing what we are comfortable with) We must continue in prayer. It must be of highest priority. We must stay in God's Word. Turn off the TV, turn off the radio. No more calling yourself a Christian and living in or dabbling in sin. We must care for the unsaved. We must not be ashamed of the gospel. And we must always, always no matter what, stand for Christ Jesus.
He is the only way！
"And he said to them all , If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it." (Luke 9: 23-24)"
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God." (Hebrews 3:12)" Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall" (1 Corinthians10:12)
"Be sober, be vigilant； because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8)
"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing: and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich； and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear； and annoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent."( Revelation 3:15-19)
"But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned； if the sword come, and take away any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity； but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand." (Ezekiel 33:6)
Thank you for listening！
