Stay Awake

James 5

 

So they will fear the name of the Lord from the west
And His glory from the rising of the sun.
For He will come in like a narrow, rushing stream
Which the breath of the Lord drives [overwhelming the enemy]. Isaiah 59:19

Wow! If John said we were in the last hour then, it isn’t hard to believe we must be in the final minutes now.  (click here)   We witness debauchery in all it’s flamboyance on a daily basis. Sadly, this perversion is not just in the world, it has entered the Church. The mockery against our Christian faith is so blatant it doesn’t even give pause to blush. But, let us also remember, this attack is not just against us, it is an attack against our God. This is a spiritual war.

Oh, Church, please wake up. Do not be deceived and get lost in the midst of all the distractions the world is throwing at us.

We see people falling away, those who we once esteemed as spiritual giants are going against the Word of God, Christians are being persecuted worldwide, sexual immorality is showcased and celebrated, hatred and paranoia have gripped the masses, to speak truth has been labeled as hate, we find humor in another’s misery, we speak death without flinching, life is not valued, marriages are not honored, chastity is ridiculed, we are greedy while others go without, or we stand on the sidelines and watch and have the audacity to say “at least I am not like them.”

As a Believer in Christ we are called to be holy. We need His Holy Spirit more than ever in these last days. We do not need to be afraid, we need to be bold and we need to be filled with His Spirit.

Do not retreat, do not be afraid…

Even in what looks like the darkest hour, His light still shines bright. The enemy has come in like a flood and He is lifting a standard. Our God is alive and well and He will not be silenced, He will not be mocked. He is moving in the hearts of His people, He is still calling us. Pockets of revival are breaking out and we will see many signs and wonders.

Now is not the time to slumber, lest’ He return and find us asleep.

My brother, my sister, let us continue to walk in love, even if the world calls it hate. Love God and follow Him with NO compromise.

When He returns let Him find faith.

Then He said to His disciples, The harvest is [indeed]plentiful, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38
