It’s been a long time since I have written anything and it is because I’ve been sitting back letting life and the devil beat on me. First thing I want to say is there may be a few things in here that are offensive and there may also be things that I hope will encourage you so I pray right now that the Lord will prepare the soil of your heart to receive the Word.
We are supposed to strive to obtain the character of Christ daily. We are to realize that we are NOT perfect that we do stumble and fall and sometimes that fall is hard. I had been clean from Meth for 4 years and recently I stumbled and fell. It has taken me a while to get back up. I have had people blame it on the church I go to. Blame it on different things but the only thing I can blame it on is myself. How can we receive forgiveness if we blame our faults on others? I was the one that let my prayer life stop. I was the one that stopped reading the Word. I was the one that let go of God. Not someone else. I did that.
So in order for me to come before Him I had to quit believing the devils condemning lies and realize that I have a high priest that can sympathize with my infirmities because he was tempted in every way that I was but He did not sin. Because of that He is able to show mercy to me and anyone else who stumbles and falls. We are to have reverential fear for Him but we are supposed to also come boldly before His throne.
In my prayer time today I finally decided to believe His Word. For so long His Word burnt like fire in me. I have different people telling me I can do this and do that but I WILL NOT listen to anything other then what the Word says. I’m angry now. Angry at the devil and I’m ready to get back up and proclaim the Word of God because WE are to proclaim the Word so that prisoners can be set free. Without the Word we have no life. Apart from the Word (Jesus) we are nothing and since I am IN HIM I want to tell you today that one of the characteristics of Christ is Boldness. We have several different gospels out there but there is only one Christ and one Gospel to be proclaimed and just as Paul said if anyone preaches any other gospel let him be accursed.
IF WE HAVE THE TRUTH then why are we not out there preaching it, witnessing to people, getting out there and telling them to GET OUT OF Babylon. Did Moses approach Pharaoh meekly??? Was it a meek gospel He came to pharaoh with? I THINK NOT! Did David approach Goliath meekly??? Was it a meek gospel that he conquered the enemy?? I think NOT! Yes, we are to be humble before the Lord and love others but we are also to be like Jesus and PREACH, TEACH, Whatever it is you do with authority. NOT AUTHORITY of our own but because we are in Christ He lives in us and His authority and boldness should flow through us.
The fire in my heart was almost quenched but now I am here and I upset with the way the church is right now. We are either preaching a false gospel or we are preaching the truth but with no passion and we are sitting on our pews just watching people burn around us. JESUS went out to the sinners. He did not come to save the righteous. He said those that are sick need a physician. We are supposed to go to those that are sick in the Spirit and TELL THEM about the Physician who can set them free and make them whole. If it wasn’t for someone coming to me OUT IN THE STREETS IN THAT DOPE HOUSE because you never would of found me in a church then I would not have been set free. I would be dead right now.
WHAT ARE WE DOING CHURCH??????? It says His Word is sharper then a two-edged sword then WHY OH WHY are we acting like butter knives with it???? I come to you very sincere in heart. I can’t survive on a water downed false gospel and I can’t survive on a true gospel with no fire behind it. SO because God has given me fire I hope to very soon get out here and spread it and set at liberty the captives that are hurting and sick. I’m not comfortable on the pews and I’m not comfortable being quiet. TIME is running out and we need to redeem it for the sake of the Gospel. WAKE UP CHURCH WAKE UP because God is about to spew you out of His mouth and for those speaking another gospel…..He will come at you with the sword and it will not be pleasant and you will be ashamed because every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. The saved and the unsaved. REMEMBER the shepherd rejoices more over the one sheep that went astray then the 99 that stayed with the flock. We need to gather. We need to reap. We need to tell the World and if you’re offended at me I’m not sorry. Look at the Shepard don’t look at the flock. Look at the Builder don’t look at the house. Look at the Potter don’t look at the pot because I’m becoming who He wants me to be. Your focus should ALWAYS be on Jesus! Our Chief Cornerstone! Our High Priest and Redeemer!! PRAISE GOD today for today is the day of Salvation.
If I am not speaking and living the Word I am dead. So let me speak it and live it Lord.
