Time is short. The earth is burdened with the sins of men. Everything is corrupt. The bible says that anyone who is a friend of the world is an enemy of God. We hate the world, but love people, we hate evil behavior, but love people. You can love people without loving what they do. Time is short. We are living on borrowed time. What are the implications of that? Think of it like going to the doctor and being diagnosed with cancer, then being told you have 2 months to live. What would you do? How would you spend your time? How would you treat people? How much time would you spend in prayer? How much would you care about filthy politicians becoming president? These are questions you need to answer...TODAY. The time to prepare for a storm is BEFORE the storm hits, right? Can you see the storm coming? I can. My job is to warn people, anyone who will listen, that there is a STORM COMING. Can you read the signs of the times?
Jesus said he was coming like a thief to them who were not watching. He is not coming like a thief to those who are watching and ready. If you are standing at the front door, bright eyed and bushy tailed when the door opens, you won't suffer loss. Jesus asked if he would find faith on earth when he returns, will he? Lots of people have religion, but how many have RELATIONSHIP? Matt 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
I NEVER KNEW YOU.....no relationship. The fact that the people say Lord, Lord tells you there IS religion involved. Away from me, I never knew you means there was no relationship. There are lots of people around me, friends and family who just don't get it. They think they are "good people" and they do lots of "good things" so they are'nt worried. Well, "good" is a relative term isn't it. What's "good" to the devil, isn't "good" to Jesus and vice versa. Lots of "good" people are going to hell, in fact, most people are going to hell. It hurts to say that. We don't want to think that, but we have to acknowledge what the bible says and make adjustments to our lives to avoid the same mistake. Matt 7:14 clearly tell us that only FEW will find the narrow gate that leads to life. TODAY is the day to do something about it. Its the human condition to take things for granted and become complascent, which is why the bible is FULL of warnings to us. I'm warning you right now. Why? LOVE. The Father warns us because he loves us.
One of my duties is to put a floodlight on the apostasy of todays so called christianity. One thing that lights up within apostianity today is OSAS, also known as once saved always saved. They say you "make a decision" for Jesus then you can do whatever you want and still go to heaven. Really? Does that jive with Matt 7:14 which says that only a few will be saved? I mean, making a decision is pretty easy isn't it? Believe today, forget tomorrow and still go to heaven sounds like a sweet deal, too bad its a lie. They ask if Jesus died for all your sins, which one is it that sends you to hell? Answer: ALL OF THEM. Remember I told you that "in Christ" are two of the most key words in the bible? Well "in Christ" ALL your sins are forgiven. If you do not REMAIN "in Christ" then NONE of your sins are forgiven. It's all or nothing. Jesus said REMAIN IN ME, AND I WILL REMAIN IN YOU. He also said "if you love me YOU WILL OBEY MY COMMANDS."
We need to abide in the vine. We need to remain "in Christ." The OSAS crowd will tell you that you can be completely faithless and disobey all Jesus' commands and still be saved. The bible says "if you love me, you will obey my commands." Two different gospels folks. Which one you choose may determine your eternal destiny. The wrong time to discover you've been lied to is when you are standing before Jesus being told "AWAY FROM ME, I NEVER KNEW YOU." While you're being dragged away by the hair, you'll be screaming "BUT MY PASTOR TOLD ME........." Jesus will say, "Yea, I don't know him either....." The pastoral system is IDOLATROUS. Those who take part in an idolatrous system are called what?
Deception is EVERYWHERE, which is why you personally have to take care of your salvation, alone with Jesus. Marriage between a man and a woman are only a SHADOW of what Jesus wants with you. Imagine the best marriage, the happiest couple on the face of this earth, then multiply that by a million, thats what Jesus is looking for with you. I don't need a hired hand to develop intimacy with my wife so I DEFINITELY do not need a hireling to develop intimacy with my Jesus, NEITHER DO YOU. Todays babylonian christianity is a SPIRITUAL PROSTITUTE, attempting with ALL HER MIGHT to weasel her way in between the Bridegroom (Jesus) and his bride (YOU). WAKE UP
Time is short, We are living on borrowed time. Jesus did'nt promise you tomorrow, all you get is right now, today. Each beat of your heart occurs SOLEY AT THE DISCRETION OF THE SON OF GOD. He wills it, and you live on, day by day, beat by beat which leads people to complacency. Wake up, be one of the wise virgins. You need to be "in Christ" to wake up. The Spirit of God is the gift given once you are "in Christ." You cannot understand anything the way you should understand without the Spirit of God. Jesus is your one stop answer to everything. He loves you, no detail is too small, he is an infinite God, he has time to hear you and deal with you as an individual.
All hell is about to break loose on this earth. The servants of the enemy are trying their best to pacify the sheeple, to keep them from stampeeding. There are warning signs everywhere. Yesterday I read 3 different articles about "October surprise" terrorist attacks on the United States. Will they happen? If they do, what will be the fallout from them? The world as you knew it a year ago, two years ago, three years ago is already GONE forever and its going to get worse. We have no need to fear whats coming on this earth. Greater is he who is in us than he who is in the world. An escape is promised in Luke 21:36, but meantime, while Jesus is patient with the world we must soldier on. Endure hardship, our reward for faith and obedience, for watching and readiness is right around the corner. Grace and peace
