“When are you coming LORD? I’m tired of it all down here!”
This heart cry was heard being yelled from a hairdressers shop doorway some forty five years ago. It’s even more appropriate now, isn’t it?
So I asked The LORD about it — not that he’d tell me — because even He doesn’t know that one – only the Father knows.
So imagine my surprise to get a response to what I thought was a rhetorical question.
“Soon,” says The LORD.
“You know the hour we are in. You see and read the signs. Yet My People so often bury their heads in the sand. This is partly because, genuinely, they don’t want to know, and partly because of fear.”
“Fear, Lord,” I said, “Why fear?”
“Because they are still not ready. Most never will be ready. The thought of My return being imminent reminds them of all they haven’t done to please me, all they should have done, and all the things I have said to them that they have ignored or rebelled against.”
Then He said, “Never stop telling people that I AM coming.
They don’t want to believe it — but what will they do or say when I appear?
I tell you, it is easier for the unsaved and for children to accept the truth than for most of My people who think that they are safe, but are really much like the Laodicean Church of Revelation 3 — they are lukewarm.
It’s time to light a fire under My Church. It’s time to rekindle your Faith and to become the loving firebrands I intended you to be.
This is why the young will lead the coming Revival — even though they will need mentors from among the older generation.
My present day Laodiceans need waking up.
I AM almost upon you but you still sleep. My Sheep who are lost need to hear My Voice — who among you will tell them?
Who among you will go into the highways and byways to lead them back to Me?
Tell them, tell them, and tell them again! Keep telling them about Me and that I AM coming.
Set My Church on Fire for the lost, until they receive the message and do what I ask, or they may miss out completely.
Many in My Church aren’t even saved themselves.
Tell them, tell them, and tell them again.
Keep telling them about Me and that I AM coming.
While there is still time, tell them.”
From 2015 but still worth a rerun — with updates 😊
