UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, WHAT SHOULD WE DO?
OUR KING IS COMING! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!
OVER AND OVER AGAIN, MY CHILDREN, I HAVE CALLED YOU TO AWARENESS AND READINESS TO RECEIVE YOUR COMING KING. NOW IS THE HOUR FOR YOU TO BEGIN TO PREPARE MY WELCOME THROUGH JOYFUL PRAISE AND WORSHIP FOR THE LORD OF LORDS AND THE KING OF KINGS. DAY AND NIGHT FILL YOUR HEART WITH THANKSGIVING, PRAISE FOR MY GOODNESS, AND GRATITUDE FOR THE GIFT OF THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST THAT DWELLS WITHIN YOU. PRAISE THE LORD GOD MOST HIGH FOR “CALLING AND CHOOSING YOU FOR HIS PURPOSES”! RE-DEDICATE YOUR ALL TO GOD AND ASK ME TO DO “MY GREATER WORKS THROUGH YOU!” DO NOT BE GUILTY OF LEAVING MY WORKS UNDONE! “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).
KEEP YOUR EYES ON YOUR SAVIOR AND ALWAYS BE IN OBEDIENCE TO HIM. FIX YOUR HEARTS UPON YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER FROM WHOM ALL OF YOUR BLESSINGS FLOW. “For behold, the LORD is coming out of His place; He will come down and tread on the high places of the earth. The mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place” (Micah 1:3-4).
YOU MUST BE PREPARED AND PROPERLY ATTIRED IN YOUR ROBES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TO RECEIVE YOUR MAKER AND YOUR SAVIOR. LET YOUR TESTIMONY AND THANKSGIVING BE CONTINUALLY IN YOUR MOUTH AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT IN YOUR HANDS. WELCOME ME WITH YOUR “PRAISE”! “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment — this honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!” (Psalms 149:6-9).
YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT TOMORROW HOLDS OR WHAT YOUR ACTIONS WILL BRING FORTH. NEITHER DO YOU KNOW THE END OF THE THOUGHTS AND VAIN IMAGINATIONS YOU ENTERTAIN IN YOUR MIND. UNLESS YOUR HEART, MIND, AND WILL ARE ROOTED IN THE WILL, WISDOM, AND TRUTH OF GOD, YOU CANNOT PRODUCE A LIFE WORTHY OF GOD. THEREFORE, YOU MUST FILL YOUR BEING WITH MY WORDS AND MY SPIRIT. SEEK AND WAIT ON MY SPIRIT TO FILL YOU AS YOU COMMUNE WITH ME. WISDOM AND TRUTH ARE ONLY DERIVED FROM MY SPIRIT. “TIME AND CHANCE, GOOD AND EVIL,” HAPPEN TO ALL, AND THEY CAN ONLY BE YOUR SERVANTS FOR GOOD WHEN YOU ARE DEDICATED TO MY LIFE AND SPIRIT WITHIN YOU. “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21).
THE MORE YOUR LIFE IS DEDICATED TO ME AND TO MY WILL, THE MORE WORKS YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH FOR MY GLORY! IF YOU GIVE ME YOUR ALL, I WILL FILL YOU TO OVERFLOWING WITH MY SPIRIT. MY WORKS ARE NOT ACCOMPLISHED BY MIGHT OR POWER BUT BY MY SPIRIT. “…This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6).
ALL MY WORK THROUGH YOU BEGINS WITH PRAYERS OF DEDICATION AND SURRENDER TO ME. THE ONLY WAY TO LIVE AN “OVERCOMING LIFE” AND “RECEIVE ETERNAL REWARDS” IS TO SEEK THE “HIGH CALLING OF GOD” AND PRESS FOR THE PRIZE OF THE “HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS. THE FUTURE OF EVERY MAN IS SEALED IN THESE WORDS OF TRUTH: “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether it is good or whether it is evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).
MY CHILDREN, DO YOU HAVE A DEEP YEARNING TO LOVE ME MORE AND HAVE MORE OF MY SPIRIT IN YOUR LIFE? ARE YOU YEARNING TO HAVE THE GREATER POWER OF MY SPIRIT THAT BRINGS FORTH GREATER WORKS? DO YOU HAVE A DESIRE TO “SHAKE THE WORLD” WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD, TO AWAKEN THE MULTITUDES SO THEY WILL BE PREPARED FOR MY COMING? YOU MUST SEEK ME, THE SOURCE OF ALL LIFE- GIVING POWER AND TRUTH, AND I WILL USE YOU TO SET FREE THE PRISONERS OF SATAN, AND BRING FORTH A PEOPLE WHO WILL BRING LIGHT INTO THE DARKNESS. I AM THE ONLY SOURCE OF “LIGHT”! IF YOU SEEK ME UNTIL YOU FIND MY WILL AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE, I WILL BE YOUR SOURCE OF POWER , AND YOU WILL BECOME MY MOUTH, HANDS, AND FEET. IF YOU DO NOT SEEK MY INDUEMENT OF POWER YOU WILL REMAIN POWERLESS, AND THE MANY SOULS YOU COULD HAVE REACHED FOR ME WILL DIE WITHOUT CHRIST. “… but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits” (Daniel 11:32). “And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:2-3).
I AM NOT CALLING FOR YOU TO GIRD YOURSELF WITH SACKCLOTH AND ASHES, BUT I AM CALLING YOU TO GIVE YOUR “ALL” TO ME. NEXT WEEK OR NEXT MONTH COULD BE TOO LATE! I AM CALLING YOU NOW TO DRAW CLOSE TO ME AND SO YOU CAN RECEIVE MY WISDOM, RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND POWER TO FINISH MY EARTHLY WORK. “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ “If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, if you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday. The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In” (Isaiah 58:6-12).
Let us pray: Dearest Father God, I come in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. I am reading the signs of the times all around me, and I want to be at work for You when You call me home. You gave everything for me, and I want to give my all for You. Give me a spirit of urgency and a stronger desire to give You my all to finish Your work on earth. May I stop wasting my time on things that have no eternal importance. May my family expand their horizons to see that the time of the end is near. I know there are ways to work for You that I haven’t attained. Show me the way to serve You and give You my highest and best. Oh God, I do not want to stand before You empty-handed. If I am not meeting the needs of those around me, then I have failed You. I know there is much more for me to give. Please show me how to give my all and be fully engaged in Your work. I want to find the way into all of Your perfect will and purposes for my life. May You be the all-encompassing love of my life. Amen.
“Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You? “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me’” (Matthew 25:34-40).
