Good Morning Family, in prayers last night I saw a vision of Jesus saying "If you knew I would return this time next week, what would you be doing?" It was so strong and I still hear it in my spirit this morning. Friends time is very short. Jesus is coming sooner than we think!
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:37-39
Friends these are the last days and there is a responsibility for us to reach out to the dying world - to think outward.
Peter when the 1st outpouring of the Spirit came upon them said they, then were in the last days...how much so us.
No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: “ ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Please, please, please whatever we do, in our eating and drinking, working and sleeping, outreach and ministries please make sure that there is oil in your lamp. Please make sure God's presence and Spirit is in everything we do and everywhere we go. Not just on Sundays but every day, every time of our lives - even at 'midnight'!
The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ Matthew 25:4-6
These kind of messages are no longer preached in churches for fear of Man perhaps and even I don't usually talk like with such seriousness this but I have to say what the Spirit is saying.
The last day is not the time to wake up to an empty lamp. It will be too late to buy!
“Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ “ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
If we know Jesus Christ is coming back this time next week, what would we be doing as individuals and as a church?
The Christian walk is a personal walk and we all responsible for our own lamps and oil.
“Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.” “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
Revelation 22:7, 12-15
He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
Have a blessed day everyone! Our God is good!
