Thank you Lord, Your message is getting out. Some believers will be spared! Thank you Lord.
I am learning just as you are. Surely you must know my ultimate goal, my hope, is that you will be moved to share these posts.
There is a world of hurt out there. That hurt is meant to trap and destroy our ability to love enduringly, like Christ loves us.
If we are in submission to His ownership, (we were bought with a price) our lives will reflect it outwardly and our heart will verify it inwardly. Our reward for active submission is peace and confidence now and eternal life with Jesus then.
Please…share at least one post with friends and family. What spoke to you might also speak to them.
There are souls in jeopardy and they are believers, friends, family and neighbors. Many are church goers. This group is the main target of both Satan’s and God’s effort.
The Apostasy (the falling away of believers) is already happening and will get worse. How many do you know that are not sitting along side in church any more? Send them a friendly note and a link to a post. How many have turned away because God did not heal their spouse or child or because “God” allowed a drunk driver to kill their loved one? Send them a link to a post. How many are gone because they have been hurt in church or in service to the church? Send them a link!
But what about us? Has hatred locked the door to heaven against us? Are we never to see that loved one again? If we refuse to ever darken a church doorway again, you can bet we will never darken heaven’s gate either.
Man’s will (especially our own) often dominates our existence. God knew it would and is using it to bring about His Word. His Word is foretelling the end of our existence as we have known it. Yes, in loose terms God is using mankind to bring about mankind’s demise. How? The wages of sin is death.
Following The Way, the Truth and the Life, after reconciliation to God via Christ, is the only means of escaping the sure eternal death that mankind in rebellion is participating in and that primarily being against us who “claim” Christ!
The analogy revealed to me in prayer is this. God has called me to hide the wheat (believers, even followers) from the enemy plot by the threshing process of God’s Words and Christ’s example. Jesus IS the wine press of Gideon but this is about grace not blood. Christ’s teachings and demonstrated example are Grace. That is the symbolism of Gideon using the wine press instead of the threshing floor. Look it up. Judges 6:11-16
You will read there what Gideon also asked the Lord, even as many of us may have in these our days.
Judges 6:13 (NASB)
13 Then Gideon said to him, “O my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, ‘Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the LORD has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.”14 The LORD looked at him and said, “Go in this your strength and deliver Israel from the hand of Midian. Have I not sent you?”
Loved one’s the blood has already been shed for those in Christ. Realize this, It will not be shed again! After the blood covering of Christ, the creative power of what Jesus taught us along with what He did for us must be plugged into what God is asking of us all. It is to empower us so that our love for mankind (interceding love) will endure! Will it protect us as it did Jesus? It is up to us.
Please help me! We followers are God’s trumpeteer’s. There is nobody else. The darkness is coming no matter what. Do we heed the warning as the strong and assist in God’s attempt to spare the weak in faith?
In studying the harm of unforgiveness, maybe we find WE are a little weaker than we thought; not only in faith but in following?
Matthew 6:14-15 (NASB)
14 “For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15 “But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.
This understanding in Matthew must follow our reconciliation to God, (our cleansing), once He has become our Father in Christ! See Romans 3:25 and 5:10. Then and only then our future sins are covered by this rule, this Spiritual qualifier of forgiveness. Our future sins continue to be covered as we forgive others!
The reward is spoken as Daniel says: Daniel 12:3 (NASB)
3 “Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
This speaks of us loved one’s.
Please…pass these posts on. I am not asking you to promote my book. God will take care of that. The posts on their own can have some effect on hearts, God willing.
“…most people’s love will grow cold but the one who endures to the end he shall be saved; this good news of the reign (kingdom) shall be preached to all nations as a witness, then the end shall come.” (Matthew 24:12-14)
The nations are waiting to hear this message that our love must endure! Jesus prophesied that they would hear it.
Shall we step into prophecy? Someone said each of us are only six people away from everybody living now. Not sure that is true but it is inspiring.
“Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his Master put in charge of His household to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his Master finds so doing when He comes.” (Matthew 24: 45-46)
How can we not act? If we do not act, darkness is still coming and Christ will follow.
As the header depicts, the skies are red these mornings.
After kneeling at His feet, I want to look Him in the eye unashamed knowing I tried.
If it costs me this life, I will share something very precious with Jesus.
Thank You Lord, oh Prince of Peace. I am excited that you chose Janis (my deceased wife) and I. She now stands with You. All the more now Lord, I need your help. Please tell her I love her and always will. Amen!
The coming times will demand our understanding. Preparing now is paramount.
You are loved, He waits,
