FAITH THE SIZE OF A MUSTARD SEED AND EARNEST STEDFAST PRAYER BRING FORTH MY AWESOME AND INCREDIBLE WORKS. WHERE IS YOUR FERVOR FOR OVERCOMING SATAN AND WHERE ARE THE VICTORIES FOR THE NAME OF CHRIST? WHAT WORKS OF SATAN ARE YOU DESTROYING? ARE YOU GOING TO ANSWER THE CALL OF MY PLANS AND PURPOSES FOR YOUR LIFE? THE UNPROFITABLE SERVANTS WILL BE CAST INTO OUTER DARKNESS. “For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 25:29-30)
MOST OF YOU ARE NOT SHEDDING TEARS OVER THE LUKEWARMNESS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST AND IN YOUR OWN LIFE. THE WEAKENING AND DESTRUCTION OF MY BODY ON EARTH DOES NOT EVEN STIR YOU. SLOWLY THE FOUNDATIONS I HAVE LAID FOR THIS NATION AND FOR YOUR OWN LIFE HAVE WEAKENED AND YOU HAVE NO FEAR OF FAILING IN YOUR CALLING! YOUR WORKS AND TESTIMONY ARE “LUKEWARM” AT BEST. YOU NO LONGER CRY OUT IN INCESSANT PRAYER AND PENITENCE OVER THE FACT THAT YOU ARE NEITHER HOT NOR COLD. YOU HAVE BECOME SO WEAK YOU NEVER TAKE A STAND THAT COUNTS FOR MY KINGDOM. HAVE YOU CHOSEN THE SOCIAL GOSPEL THAT SEEKS NUMBERS AND A “FEEL GOOD” RELIGION INSTEAD OF LOVE, SACRIFICE, AND DEDICATION TO THE WINNING OF SOULS FOR CHRIST? ARE YOU MINE IN NAME ONLY? ARE YOU A MEMBER OF THE CHURCH OF LAODICEA? “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth’” (Revelation 3:14-16).
MUCH OF THE LUKEWARMNESS OF THE CHURCH AT LAODICEA IS BEING RE-ENACTED BEFORE MY EYES. LAODECEA IS THE CHURCH THAT DOES EVERYTHING FOR THE PLEASURES OF THE FLESH, AND LITTLE IF ANYTHING IS DONE THROUGH MY SPIRIT. YOU ARE SO BUSY LAMENTING AND SHAKING YOUR HEAD AT THE THINGS HAPPENING ALL AROUND YOU INSTEAD OF PRAYING AND BEING READY FOR MY RETURN FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST. FAITH AND PRAYER LOCKED TOGETHER PRODUCE THE MIRACULOUS WORKING OF GOD IN YOUR MIDST. HAVE YOU LIMITED YOURSELF WITHIN THE WALLS OF YOUR OWN IMPOSSIBILITIES AND POWERLESSNESS? “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:6-8).
I AM CALLING YOU NOW TO RE-DEDICATE YOURSELF WHOLLY TO ME AND MY LIFE WITHIN YOU. I WILL SHOW YOU MY WORKS AND PERFECT WILL FOR YOUR LIFE. YOU ARE CALLED TO LOVE AND SERVE ME. “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:1-2).
MY CHILDREN I HAVE GREAT WORKS AND BLESSINGS TO POUR FORTH UPON YOU. I AM WAITING FOR YOUR TOTAL SURRENDER TO MY WILL AND PURPOSE FOR YOU. TOTALLY GIVE YOUR LIFE TO ME FOR MY GLORY; THAT MEANS THAT YOU ARE MINE 24/7. IT ALSO MEANS YOU SEEK MY WORKS AND THOUGHTS WITHIN YOU. YOU ARE TRAINED BY MY SPIRIT AS YOU READ AND STUDY MY WORD. I AM YOUR FATHER, AND MY WORKS AND MY LOVE MUST SHINE THROUGH YOU. YOU CANNOT BE CONNECTED TO A WORLDLY LIFESTYLE AND THOUGHT PATTERN AND PRODUCE MY WORKS. “Therefore ‘Come out from among them and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:17-18).
THESE ARE EXTRAORDINARY TIMES AND REQUIRE WITHIN YOU THE WILL AND THE WISDOM OF GOD FOR YOUR EVERY THOUGHT AND ACTION. YOU MUST CEASE FROM DESIGNING YOUR OWN WORKS AND LISTENING TO YOUR OWN WISDOM OR THE WISDOM OF MAN. INSTEAD, YOUR WORKS MUST ORIGINATE IN GOD AND BE POWERED BY MY SPIRIT. YOU HAVE MOUNTAINS TO BRING DOWN AND THE DESTRUCTIONS OF SATAN TO BLOCK AND DESTROY. YOU MUST GIVE YOUR LIFE TO ME AND LET ME TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE IN MY NAME AND THROUGH MY POWER! IF YOU ARE LUKEWARM IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE WORKING AND THINKING ACCORDING TO YOUR FLESH. WITHOUT MY SPIRIT BEING YOUR SOURCE OF MOTIVATION AND POWER, YOUR FLESH CAN PRODUCE NOTHING OF ETERNAL VALUE! “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:28-29).
AT THE END OF THE ROAD EACH OF YOU WILL EITHER FACE GREAT JOY AND SATISFACTION FOR “A LIFE WELL LIVED AND PLEASING TO GOD” OR GREAT REGRET THAT YOUR LIFE PRODUCED NO REWARDS OR FRUIT UNTO GOD. BY NOW, EACH ONE OF YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT LIFE ONLY HAS ETERNAL VALUE WHEN IT IS STAMPED “DESIGNED AND RE-CREATED BY GOD!”
Let us pray: Dearest heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ my Savior, with joy I come before You. I don’t deserve the wondrous love and care You have always shown me. I want to grow in Your wisdom and understanding of the work You have for me. I re-dedicate myself and all I possess to You. I know I am responsible to carry out Your plans for my life with Your help. “Unbelief and lukewarmness” on my part are a terrible sin against so great a love as Yours. Always convict me of my sins against You. Make my love for You, and all those You died for, increase until I flow with Your love. May I have Your ever-increasing wisdom. If I am stubbornly clinging to wrong opinions, please change my mind to conform with Your thoughts. Lord, I want my life to count for Your kingdom and for You. Put within me Your desires and will for every day of my life. Anoint my works and me so that my life will shine for You. Help my eyes always to be fixed on You and Your will. I pray that I will be conscious of all the needs around me and that I will always pray “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven!” Amen.
