And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
Mark 13:37
When Jesus was asked about what would happen at the end of time, He
talked about being ready and gave examples of some people who were
ready and some who weren’t. Those who were ready were the Overcomers in
the churches. Just because you are saved doesn’t mean that you will be
in the rapture of the church. The cold, the lukewarm, those who have
lost their first love and are not producing for Christ, and those who are
caught up with the things of the world won’t automatically qualify for
the rapture. They are backslidden. This is a hard concept for people
who have been taught that if they have once been saved they are always
saved, and that once they are saved they can live whatever way they
want.
There is hope! You are still living in the age of grace! In order to
receive cleansing, we have to acknowledge our sin. You have to ask for
forgiveness. Repentance is not saying “Sorry” with your mouth; it is
changing your ways. When you do, you are cleansed from all
unrighteousness. We are in right standing with God again. It stands to
reason that if you have not acknowledged your sin, you are not in right
standing with God.
Prayer for Today
Dear Heavenly Father,
I acknowledge that I have sinned against You. I repent of my
self-directed ways and throw myself on Your mercy, grace, and
forgiveness. Thank You for Your blood and for Your strength to walk in
Your straight path. In Jesus Christ Name, amen!

Get Ready! Jesus Is Coming Soon!

Get Ready! Jesus Is Coming Soon


 

 

 

 

 

 

Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 25:13.
This verse concludes the parable of the ten virgins, where five had oil
in their lamps and were ready to go out, and five were foolish and
missed the marriage.

In the seven churches Jesus addressed in
Revelation 2 and 3, there were people in every church who had received
eternal life, whose names were written in the book of life. Satan had
infiltrated six of those churches, and to those Jesus said: “To him
that overcometh those issues….” The overcomer was found ready.
This verse contains the point of the parable: watch therefore. In other
words, be ready, because you don’t know the time when the Son of Man
will come. Being ready means to be faithful. It means to be true.
To be ready, you can’t lose your first love. You can’t be a
compromiser. You can’t deny Jesus. You can’t allow false doctrine. You
can’t get caught up in all the pleasures of this world. You have to
overcome those problems, act on the Word, and keep a proper focus.
Prayer for Today
Dear Heavenly Father,
I want to be ready! I want to be true! I want to be totally sold out to
the purposes of Your kingdom. I will stay true through Your grace and
Your power! In Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

Can God Count on You.

Can God Count on You?

 

 

 

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept
my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of
the synagogue of satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do
lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet,
and to know that I have loved thee.

Revelation 3:8-9

The church at Philadelphia is going to have manifestations of God. Man
cannot stop what God is going to do. Those going the wrong way, those
going the false way, are going to come, see and know that God’s hand is
on them. God said, “I am going to put them right at your feet.” This is
an Overcoming Church. This is a Word Church, a Faithful Church, and a
True Church.

Faithfulness is the character quality that ensures that you do the
right thing, whether anyone is watching you or not, whether anyone is
keeping tabs or not. When you are faithful, you do it with the right
motive, and you can be counted on all the time. Everybody in the body
of Christ likes people who are faithful, especially pastors. I know
that I can give the faithful something to do and don’t have to think
about it anymore!

John goes on to say that those who remain faithful will have a crown.
Those who are overcomers will be “pillar[s] in the temple of my God”
(v. 12). They will have all the authority that Jesus has.

Prayer for Today

Father,
I raise my hands in recognition that You alone are worthy! I praise You
and give You glory! Through Your power, I will be faithful to You, no
matter what comes! In Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

Beware! Nobody knows the exact time or day of the coming of the Lord

Beware! Nobody knows the exact time or day of the coming of the Lord

Living Aware

…I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art
dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are
ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast,
and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee
as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee
Revelation 3:1b-3

The church of Sardis says they are alive, but they are dead. They have
an outward form and a profession, but that is all they have. There is
no power. There is nothing real about it whatsoever. This is a church that has moved from what God wanted it be and has become just a church
of forms, customs, show, and religion.

Nobody knows the exact time or day of the coming of the Lord. But note
that here He says that they wouldn’t even know what season or hour it
was. In other words, this church has moved so far away from any
revelation or understanding of the Spirit that they don’t even know
that it is the last days and that the return of the Lord is nigh. They
are just moving through their days, totally blind to all spiritual
truth and understanding.

Prayer for Today

Father,
I open my eyes and my heart to listen, to watch for Your ways. Thank
You for the faithfulness of those who bring me Your truth. I hear and
hold fast to You. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Stay Away from Jezebel

Stay Away from Jezebel!

 

 

 

Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou
sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to
teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat
things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her
fornication; and she repented not.

Revelation 2:20-21

This is written to Thyatira, a corrupt, self-promoting church. Jezebel
is a self-promoter who calls herself a prophetess, but the Holy Ghost is the real promoter. If you are always trying to promote yourself, to
get to the pulpit, or to do something that gets you noticed, you will
not get very far. The Holy Ghost gives you the gifts. He gives you the
talents you have. He gives you favour where favour is necessary. Your
responsibility is to do what your hands can find to do, and do it with
all your might.

God gave Jezebel time to repent. The book of Romans says it this way:
The goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance (Romans 2:4b). Just
because the hammer doesn’t fall when you are doing what you shouldn’t
be doing doesn’t mean that you are getting away with anything. God may be giving you time and space to come to your senses and understand what
you are doing.

It matters not only what you do but also why you do it. You can do
things to be seen. You can do things to get yourself in line for
something you want. Jezebel’s motives are absolutely wrong, and those
who have her spirit are wrong. You have to watch who you hang around
with, because you will soon start becoming what they are. If you hang
around a Jezebel spirit, you will become a Jezebel.

Prayer for Today

Father,
I am dependent on You to show me my heart and my motives. I want Your
Will to be done above all other things. I desire only Your favour and
Your blessing. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen.

Hell Is Real

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) - The F...

Hell is real


And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books
were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life:
and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in
the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead
which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which
were in them: and they were judged every man according to their
works.

Revelation 20:12-13

This is the great white throne of judgment for those who are not
overcomers, those who have not made the decision to receive Jesus Christ and stay true to Him. He said the books-plural-will be opened.
There is a record of everything you have done in your life: every
thought, action, intent, and word is recorded. The Bible will judge
your hearts, your actions, your motives, and your words.

Calling every molecule back together and fitting it all in a human body
is no problem to God. There will be, and there are now, people in hell
who will stand before this judgment in Revelation 20 and be given a
full picture of why they are in hell. There are some popular teachings
across the country that say there is no hell, that the loving God would
never send any person to hell.

God is love. Hell is not created for man; it was created for satan and
his angels and anybody who decides to follow him. If you turn away from
the living God and get satan’s judgment, you have chosen hell for
yourself. Make a decision for the Lord and reject satan. Hell is a real
place, but it is not the end.

Prayer for Today

Father,
I humble myself in Your presence, knowing that You know me inside and
out. You know my every thought and deed, my every word and action. My
desire is to glorify You in my life. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen.

God Hates Religion

God Hates Religion

 

But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes,
which I also hate.

Revelation 2:6

If God hates something, then you are supposed to hate it. The
Nicolaitanes were known for their lascivious life style, for false
teaching, and for error. They wanted the priesthood to be restored, but
they wanted the church to be controlled by laymen. Nicholas, the
deacon, was their leader.

Men elected by men are not supposed to rule men called by God. When you
have laypersons trying to run what God planted, you will never get what
God wanted to happen because they aren’t called and anointed for that
role. Just because someone is a successful businessman doesn’t mean
that person knows anything about the anointing of God and the plan that
God has for the church.

God hates religion. Christianity is not a religion. Religion is
comprised of forms, customs, and religious activity. Christianity is an
experience with someone that is alive, someone who will change your
life forever. His name is Jesus Christ!

Prayer for Today

Dear Heavenly Father,
I praise You for reaching out to me, for desiring a relationship with
me that is true, pure, and enduring. I thank You for ever living and
ever interceding for Your people and Your church. In Jesus Christ Name! Amen!

The Lord Must Build the Church

Šelpice, Jesus Christ church

The Lord Must Build the Church


Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do
the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will
remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Revelation 2:5

Jesus not only establishes the church but also removes a church when it
loses its value to the kingdom. If a church doesn’t witness, doesn’t
cause people to learn the truth, and doesn’t pray or if a church is
only formed by customs and catering to the flesh, not advancing the
kingdom of God, the Lord doesn’t want His name on it. You can look at the histories of some churches and some denominations and see that they
started out on fire for God, doing the great works of God. Today those
denominations are totally cold and losing members. What happened? Their
candlesticks were removed.

The only way that you can do the works of God is if the Lord builds the
church. If the Lord doesn’t build the church, you are in vain to build
it. You can build a church in the flesh, but there will be no credit,
no anointing, no move of God, and no revelation. It will be only an
institution.

If the Lord removes a church, He will send someone else to be His
witness because He still wants all men to be saved and come to the
knowledge of the truth. That is the reason why you will see three or
four churches in the same place.

Prayer for Today

Father,
You alone are the builder and establisher of Your church. I pray for
knowledge to do Your will, for courage to remain true, and for the
anointing of Your Spirit to do work that will last for Your kingdom and
Your glory. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen.

666 or 777

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

666 or 777?


Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Revelation 13:18

This beast does great wonders, making a fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. The mark of the beast in Scripture is six, the number of a man, meaning incompleteness. The beast’s system is three sixes or an incomplete system which will fail. Satan designed it, of course, so it cannot succeed. Satan, antichrist, and the false prophet will fail.

It is important that you have an understanding of 666. Satan can’t win, so there’s no reason to hook up with him. I am not hooked up with satan, and I am not hooked up with the Babylonian system. I am hooked up with Jesus the Messiah! His number is seven, and with that number of completeness you get the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and they win!

We are living in an anti-God, humanistic, anti-Word of God system that prevails in our educational systems and in our media. We see the rise of every kind of sin. Every perversion we can imagine is no longer shocking. We are in the last of the last days; in fact, we are in that sliver of time between Jerusalem no longer being trodden down of the Gentiles and the rapture of the church. Jesus said, “No man knows the day nor hour,” but He did say that you will know by the leaves turning on the trees that summer is near. Summer is near and the return of the Lord is near, so we need to be ready!

Prayer for Today

Father!
Your Word tells me everything I need to walk in light and truth. Your Spirit gives me everything I need to walk with courage and strength. Your Son gives me life, and I thank you! In Jesus Christ! Name, Amen.
