Enemies of the Cross
“Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations,”Ezekiel 14:6.
“Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin,”Ezekiel 18:30.
Paul wrote of this concerning many in His day. He would definitely say the same of many of our most popular preachers in our day, we need to ask ourselves this question should we be following enemies of the cross?
“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ,” Philippians 3:18.
Move into Greater Glory and Works!
It is time to move into the greater glory and the greater works. What will it take? It will take great faith and great grace and that will take humility and great repentance.
But many will say, “I have been there and done that!” That very attitude is the greatest indicator that we desperately need a deeper work of repentance.
Are we shaking our cities, regions and nations for God?
Are multitudes coming into the Kingdom?
If not, we must go down deeper in repentance that we may carry a greater measure of the Spirit of Prayer that we may birth souls into the Kingdom.
When Zion travails, she brings forth.
What is it we need to repent of?
All of our ways that are not His ways, and all of our thoughts that are not His. For our lack of unity, respect of persons, celebrity worship of our leaders in the body of Christ, building our own Kingdoms instead of establishing His.
Most of all, we need to repent deeply for our lack of prayer and burden for souls and our failure to do personal evangelism, and our corporate failure for not being the the House of Prayer for all Nations .
Saints, we are not in Revival, if we are not praying corporately! And definitely not even close to reformation, or awakening.
We have our public meetings and conferences where our celebrity speakers entertain us and promote their materials for 20 and 30 minutes in our services, and we do not even have five minutes of corporate prayer.
Shame on us. We must repent and get back to being a House of Prayer
