Good morning everyone! Welcome to Friday! I know that is has been a while since I have written in this blog. Needless to say 2020 has been a bit distracting. However, I was blessed enough to get a really nice laptop that my wife agreed to and so I am back with my first post in a while. Forgive me if my writing skills have faded a bit, I’m sure they will be back shortly…
So, 2020, we have just about seen it all. Plagues, riots, economy in shambles, you name it, we have seen it. Never before in my life have I seen our country, heck our world, in such disarray. For me as a Christ Follower, however, it is not unexpected.
See, the Bible has predicted all of this thousands of years ago. That the world would go through a time like never seen before. A little secret though; this is nothing compared to what is coming. The “birth pangs” that we are seeing now are just a reminder of what is to come. So, what now?
Well, the way I see it two things are on the horizon:
*The stage is being set for the Beast of Revelation to come on the scene and “unite” the world.
*Or, a revival is getting ready to sweep the globe like never before.
Thing is; even though eventually the first option WILL happen, I think we still have the ability to see the second option materialize. How is that David? Simple. Love. And not just any love, but Agape God’s Love…
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
The thing that many of us forget, yes even you Christian of 30 years, is that love is not a feeling but an action. An action that Jesus Christ demonstrated to us by His sacrifice on the Cross. He didn’t stop there either; He commands the same type of sacrificial love from us to others! (Obviously not on a Cross, save the emails). That is where we must begin…
Revival is possible but we have to start by being the Light; by being the example that Christ set forth for us and by asking the Holy Spirit to guide us along the way. Its not about your political stance, its not about Church membership, its not even about YOU. There are souls to be won for the Kingdom and that can only be done through the Love of Jesus Christ.
So, the decision is up to you. As always, we have free will to make a choice. Will that choice be to simply stand in the corner, feet planted, mind closed to your favorite political candidate? Or will you open your heart to Christ who has the power to bring some much needed love to our land. Choose wisely, the fate of many depends on it…
Hello again everyone! I hope and pray that you all had a exceptional week and are ready for the weekend. I had some ups and downs but at the end of it all I’m still standing and God is still in control, Amen?
This week I am issuing a calling; a calling to all my Brothers and Sisters in Christ. (If you haven’t made Jesus the Savior of your life, please do so now; if you don’t know where to start, please let me or someone else know and we can help you get there.) The calling I am asking for is simple; stand up for what you believe in; not just on Social Media but everywhere! The Enemy does not hesitate to have his intentions known through his people, so neither should God’s people.
The time for worrying about offending someone is over. The time for worrying that what you say wont be received in love is over. The time for sitting on our hands and waiting for the Lord’s return is over. We have been charged, as His followers, to speak HIS truth (not ours) to all that will hear. Have we done that? I mean really done that?
I already see a Great Falling away from Godly principles like never before in the name of political correctness. Why? Well I think people are afraid; they are afraid to truly give all of themselves because they see the evil that is out there. They don’t have the faith that Jesus will do what He said He would do and lead us in the right direction. How is your faith today? Is it strong enough to boldly say without hesitation things like this:
God and God alone created the Universe and everything in it.
Sin came into the world because of OUR disobedience.
God sent His only Son to this world to pay a price for our sin we could never pay.
Jesus Christ died on a Cross and rose again.
Jesus Christ is coming back to restore things to how they were meant to be.
God created marriage to be between One man and One woman.
Abortion is an abomination and God’s heart breaks with every one.
The only true love is found in Jesus Christ.
There are many more, but this list is a good start. I plead with you all to put aside your fears, be bold and take a stand for your faith. Can we do that? Can we finally shed our fear completely of our Enemy and make a real difference? This is not just to rescue the lost but also to ourselves; aren’t you tired of being scared? Aren’t you tired of the negativity in your life? If so, accept my plea and watch God move in your life like never before!
I listen to a few good self-motivational speakers with tons of good advice and practices, but the one thing they are always missing is to center all of that around our faith. To be bold with our beliefs and actions no matter how mad it makes the Enemy. So who is with me? I would love to hear from you all on your thoughts.
Be bold, be faithful, be what God has created you to be!
