Tribulation is here, and more is at hand. There is a spirit that says, if people are asleep, let them be so. They have made their decisions, and they have no intention of moving from such comfort or ease.
If that is true, then only God can shake them loose from such stupor. And He has done so, at numerous times in the past. The sails of the ship, have no wind. Jesus Christ’s body, is supposed to be performing great wonders.
This is no time to be speaking in a crude manner, or issuing some kind of harsh rhetoric. But our people, need to put down their hand held devices, and look around them; at what’s going on in their town, in this world, and who might be behind them.
How can we possibly know what time we are in, if we are not watching the signs all around us? We’ve become so desensitized to violence and wickedness; there is this, “So what?” attitude. What can I do about it anyway? The church, is to be helping and seeking souls.
Just because so many are satisfied with their programs and where they are, doesn’t mean that hurt and needy people are not all around us.
How could we possibly think, that Jesus Christ would now allow us to continue on with business as usual? I tell you, in the way of the Spirit, many voices are now declaring forth a real and valid warning to us. You know, it didn’t matter at times to God, if the people listened to the word He had spoken to His prophets. He is a very merciful God, and He gives all men a chance to turn.
But this post, is to all those who are genuinely seeking the way of the LORD, and are striving to follow the leading of the Spirit. It is going to take something special, to navigate the waters that are rising up around us.
The body of Christ, must be united in the Spirit, and endeavor to keep it that way. The Word says, that evil men will wax worse and worse; this is happening every day now. It will take fresh oil. And fresh power to stand against the wiles of the enemy; even some our own flesh and blood. He that hath an ear…..
There is only one body, and one Spirit. If we are truly together in that body, we simply cannot ignore the truth of our estate.
Do we realize, that so many are turning their backs on the cries of bruised and lost people; even some of their very own? Tribulation. It is going to take as much of the Spirit as earthly possible to stay afloat ourselves and deal with the issues all around us.
Do we realize that prophets of old, sometimes got tired of talking to God’s own people; being ignored and scorned? Yet, they were compelled to.
Grab yourselves by the boot straps, because it is going to take much more patience than we ever thought we might have. We’ll not do it on our own.
Patience, which has the power to endure whatever injustice or unpleasantness that comes, with good temper. Find those with whom you can be in unity with in the Spirit of the LORD.
If the gates of hell cannot prevail against it, there are untold souls that want to be in unity with others in this body of Christ. Find them. Together, we can save ourselves, and others.
