Time is drawing short. Everyday is one day closer to the coming of the Lord. We must prepare ourselves. Make straight the pathways of the Lord. Repent for the kingdom of God draweth nigh.
Who will believe the report of the Lord. Is their none righteous in all the world.
God is asking the church today; How long!!!! How long will we continue in abominations. How long will the church compromise the truths of Gods word for the doctrines of men. How long will you continue to listen to the enemy and refuse instruction in righteousness. How long will we serve the God of self and deny the Lord God your Creator. How Long! How long will you wallow in worldliness. How long will you continue to hate, and despise love. How long!! How Long!!!
What I want to know is how long will it be before God shouts, “IT IS ENOUGH!!!!
I thank God for His loving devotions toward us. I know that He loves us. He would have to, to tolerate the abominations of man.
The church is on its way to becoming the adulterous harlot of abominations. She is inviting the world to tempt her beyond that which she intended. And by doing so she has sought after worldliness.
With get rich preachers who have stolen the last two mites of the widows. And offered nothing in return. With ideaologies that twist the truth to appeal to man. With conformities to promote attendance in services. With theological, and philosophical teachings that leave the believer in the same state as he was in when he walked through the door, for lack of understanding.
Hosea:4:6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
I realize that we are living in the twenty-first century, a time when "rights" are a major concern of the world. But that does not include the bride of Christ.!!!!!!
There are no rights written upon the pages of Gods Holy word. There are roles. There are rules. There are rewards. But there are no rights!!!!
Even your days are numbered as the hairs on your head. God is not playing church!!! Now is the time to seek the things of God. Now is the time to obtain wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Now is the time to apply these instructions to your life.
Matt. 6:33 Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. (Paraphrase)
Who will stand up for God!!! Who will walk in His ways.
God is calling all saints to prepare themselves for the coming battle.
Eph. 6:13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14: Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15: And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16: Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17: And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
He’s not just talking about getting dressed up. He wants you to put it to use.
18: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Pray, Pray, Pray!!! That utterance may be given.
19: And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20: For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
as I ought to speak. !!!!!!!!!
How should you speak???? As a Minister of GODS word. Ex:28:4: And these are the garments which they shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.
This office requires the exclusion of anything that God has not authorized. This office requires a servant who will diligently seek the Lord for the instruction of Gods people.
It is time for the church to cleanse herself from the impurities of the world, and put on the righteousness of God.
Three things I want you to take away from here today.
1) Get knowledge. It is freely given by the spirit. Ask, seek, and knock. This means you will have to study, pray, and wait. Do not perish for lack of it.
2) Seek the kingdom of God. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. (Heb. 11:6)
3) Be the Minister of God in your witness. Put on the ministers attire. Be prepared for the task ahead of you. Do not be caught naked.
We are all dying in a sea of transgression. It is time to lay aside every weight. It is time for you to cast off the world. It is time to repent and be baptized into life everlasting.
