It’s Time

August 8, 2016

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, (Philippians 2:5-6)

Jesus is calling us to be about our Father business. Jesus commanded Peter to feed My sheep. Feeding is an action word. Reaction is placed into action. Jesus purely expressed to Peter (if you love me, feed My sheep) (John 21:17) Words without action is like sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.(1 Corinthians 13:1b) God set the example of real love in (John 3:16) “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. We cannot continue placing band-aids on open wounds. Fancy Hallmark cards, e-cards and texts does not replace love and action.

Spiritual leaders, it’s time we pull off the masks. If we don’t pull off the masks, God will pull off the masks and reveal our true self. Souls are dying and being lost while we want to protect feelings and fill people with enticing words and desserts. We need to cry out ‘repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand’. (Matthew 4:17) It is our responsibility to let people know that every person will reap what they sow. It’s time to remind people that the “wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”. (Romans 6:23)

Jesus is saying to us “My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous”. (1 John 2:1) We have an Advocate that loves us, forgive us and cares for us. In order to go to Heaven, we must confess, believe and repent. We can’t go to live with Jesus by carrying a Bible around or going to church daily. We must die to this natural life and allow God to pull off the old man and his deeds. We must be transformed by the renewing of our mind. “That you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness”. (Ephesians 4:22)

In all my years, I have watched this Country change from fearing God, loving God and our neighbors to a Country filled with evil, back-biting and a selfish generation. God can and will change the Country back to a “blessed Country if we repent, pray, turn from our wicked ways and seek His face”. (2 Chronicles 7:14) It’s time for a change. It’s time to go back to that place where we first believed. It’s time we give our life, heart and soul to God. It’s time to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things”. (Matthew 6:33-34)  Make sure if we don’t wake up in the morning, everything will be alright. If you haven’t given your life to God, do it TODAY. TOMORROW is not promise. When we have repented, confessed and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ, we can face tomorrow with no fear. Everything will be alright.

Prayer: Father, forgive us of our sins. For we acknowledge that we have sinned against Heaven and You. We need You in these perilous times. We confess and repent of our sins. We believe that You has raised Jesus from the dead. Come into our life and be our Savior.
