UNCOMFORTABLE WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS
I HAVE SAID TO YOU THAT THE “FEAR OF THE LORD IS WISDOM AND TO CEASE FROM EVIL IS UNDERSTANDING.” Job 28:28 “And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to depart from evil is understanding.’” MANY OF MY CHILDREN ARE “SLEEP-WALKING” THROUGH LIFE. THOUGH YOU SEE EVIL ON EVERY HAND, YOU DO NOT GRIEVE OR TAKE THE ACTIVE RESPONSIBILITY OF STANDING AGAINST EVIL BY PRAYING FOR “THE FEAR OF THE LORD” FOR YOUR LOVED ONES, FRIENDS, YOUR NATION AND THE WORLD. AS YOU WALK BY SOMEONE CRIPPLED OR APPARENTLY CRUSHED BY LIFE, DO YOU IMMEDIATELY PRAY FOR THEM IN YOUR SPIRIT? IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING MY KINGDOM TO EARTH! WE MUST OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD.
MY CHILDREN, YOU CANNOT WIN THIS BATTLE AGAINST EVIL AND SICKNESS UNLESS YOU ACTIVELY OPPOSE IT. HOW CAN THE PRESENCE OF MY ETERNAL KINGDOM AND MY RULERSHIP IN LIVES BE FELT OR SEEN ON EARTH IF YOU MERELY ACCEPT THE SIN AND MORAL CORRUPTION YOU SEE AND DO NOTHING. THE STANDS YOU TAKE PROVE WHAT YOU “STAND FOR.” WHEN YOU WORK THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF LOVE, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT YOU ARE BORN OF MY SPIRIT AND ARE DOING MY WORK. HOW PROFITABLE IS A SOLDIER OF THE CROSS IF HE NEVER BEARS THE CROSS OR FOLLOWS CHRIST? HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRAY FOR THE REDEMPTION OF THE LOST AND AGAINST SATAN’S ROBBERY OF THE SOULS OF MEN? I HAVE CALLED YOU “BELOVED” BECAUSE YOU ARE MY CHILDREN, AND YET MANY OF YOU ARE NOT STIRRED BY SIN ENOUGH TO URGENTLY PRAY FOR MY KINGDOM TO COME AND MY WILL TO BE DONE ON EARTH. SIN NO LONGER BOTHERS THE RIGHTEOUS ENOUGH FOR THEM TO LIFT UP GOD’S “STANDARD OF PRAYER” AGAINST IT. Romans 6:16 “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?” WHEN YOU BECOME TOO USED TO SIN YOU BECOME UNCOMFORTABLE WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS!
MANY OF YOU ARE CHILDREN WHO TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY TO PUBLISH MY “TRUTH” OR PRAY FOR THE SINNERS AROUND YOU. THE TIME IS SHORT AND THERE IS MUCH TO BE DONE TO BRING THE LOST INTO THE KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST. WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD ARE IN “SHORT SUPPLY” AMONG YOU! IF THIS WERE NOT SO YOU WOULD HAVE LOOKED AT THE SIGNS OF MY RETURN ALL AROUND YOU AND UNDERSTOOD THE NECESSITY OF PREPARATION. THE SIGNS SHOULD SHOUT FOR YOU TO WARN THE LOST TO BE PREPARED FOR MY RETURN. IF I DO NOT RETURN IN YOUR LIFETIME, YOU ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE TO WARN AND SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH THE SOULS IN YOUR GENERATION. Ezekiel 3:18 “When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.”
THE WORLD IS WORKING AND SHOUTING THROUGH EVERY NEWS MEDIA ITS PLAN TO MAKE A GLOBAL UTOPIA IN THE IMAGE OF SATAN. EXCLUDED IN THIS NEW WORLD ORDER WILL BE THE MENTION OF SIN, RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND JUDGMENT TO COME. MY CHILDREN, “ALL ROADS DO NOT LEAD TO GOD!” IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED MY LOVE, SALVATION, AND SPIRIT OF LIFE WITHIN YOU, THEN YOU KNOW THE TRUTH. ONLY THE TRUTH WILL SET THE WORLD FREE!! WHY DO YOU NOT TELL THEM AND SHOW THEM “THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE OF CHRIST THAT MUST BE IN THEM?” THE WORLD WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY TO YOU: Mark 4:38 “… and (THEY) said to Him, ‘Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?’”
God alone claims to be the Savior of the world and if He abides within you are aware of His presence. Moreover He gives many irrefutable proofs to those that receive Him. Acts 4:12 “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” John 4:42 “Then they said to the woman, ‘Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.’”
As you listen to the news you know the world is not being given the truth that can save them. There is only “one way” to receive the salvation and blessedness of God. You know the way, but are you doing anything to make Christ known and to prepare the hearts of the lost to receive Christ as their only way to eternal life?
I would like to insert here a true life illustration of God’s love and caring for the lost…….Anita
This is one thing of which I am absolutely positive: Luke 19:10 “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” As I have said before, God began to reveal himself to me when I was only nine years of age, and He continued until I surrendered my life to Christ. Only almighty God could have showed me, through His power, the undeniable proofs of His lordship and miracles.
Many times I have had God give me simple instructions that did not indicate to me that a profound miracle was about to take place. One morning as I walked through our supermarket, God spoke to me about a man who was standing in one of the check stands. God told me to go and tell this man (a total stranger to me) about God’s love for him and give him the invitation to accept Christ into his life.
This request was not strange to me because God had miraculously put us into the supermarket business and He had often told me to speak to a shopper about their soul. I never have had a rejection of God’s words or someone become angry with me as I obeyed. God always prepared the person and guarded all the circumstances so satan could not attack. I was doing God’s business at His command and the results have always been a perfect work.
This man in the check stand followed me to a seat at a table in our snack bar. Prayerfully (in my spirit) I called out for God to take charge and be in control of my words. The man listened stoically while I gave him God’s personal message. When the man heard God’s offer of love and adoption into the family of God, he began to be emotional and show some life in his eyes. He said to me, “I was going home to commit suicide. Before I came to the store I told God to have someone come to me in this final hour (if he really was real and cared about me) and tell me about His love, and explain what God wanted me to do.
I saw God change that man into a “new” man and give him eternal hope and love in Christ. I am amazed at how God always reveals Himself and His love when someone seeks Him with a whole heart.
God truly works in mysterious ways! We are called to be God’s instruments of love and work. “Whosoever will may come,” so let us be a guide and never stand in their way. Many call out for God to show them miracles. Well, all we have to do is become his workman and follow his commands. If we totally dedicate our lives to be used of God, he will use us for his glory as it pleases him. It is not about “us.” It is all about God and his kingdom! Selfish ambition will not show forth God’s glory, but will impede God’s work. John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.”
Dearest Father God and my dearest Lord and Savior,
I want to be used for the glory of Your kingdom. I know my work in You begins with my “asking You, seeking You, and knocking on Your door for Your love and wisdom.” I must continually ask to fulfill all righteousness because it would be easy for me to get carried away by the things of the world and satan’s deceiving. Help me to “set aside” time for You to make me the child of God and workman You need and want me to be. I am not limited by my limitations because “all things are possible with You!” I am asking You to reveal to me Your “call” on my life and to teach me Your commands. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit to overflowing. Anoint me for Your service.
I give You and Your Spirit “full reign” in my life. Remove all of my flesh that keeps me from obedience. Give me the truth of the things in my life that stand in the way of my pleasing You. I will repent and with the help of Your Spirit become all You have called me to be. I give myself totally to live for Your glory and not mine. I want to do whatever You put within me to do and live my life to fulfill Your pre-ordained purposes for me. Help me to love You with my whole heart. I want my voice raised and my stand to be for “Your truth and Your righteousness.” Take all fear from me and make me Your steadfast servant. Help me to finish my part of Your earthly work. I love You! Amen.
