This world is not our home. We’re just passing through. The Lord wants us to remember that he is our King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and we belong to his kingdom forever! Jesus’s kingdom is not a physical country yet, but it will be when Jesus comes back to rule and reign for 1000 years upon the earth.( Revelation 21). “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”(Colossians 3:2). Sure, were supposed to stand up for things that are of God, and right, and true, and vote, and let our voices be heard, but ultimately in this world and in this country it gets what it wants and deserves. If Christian believers can’t or won’t get out and vote to change things, then they will get what they deserve ! Someday we each will have to stand before the Lord and give account for ourselves. Jesus said “What is that to thee Follow thou me.”(John 21 :22b). “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:20b,21 ).Beloved the Lord is saying to us who are unhappy about the events taking place in this country and in this world “See that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”(Matthew 24:6b). Lord help us to let these events in this world make us to see more clearly about where we stand as Christians living in this world temporarily. Stand up for Jesus ye soldiers of the cross. Lift high his royal banner it must not suffer loss ! If you don’t stand for something ,you will fall for anything. Do you know what your church or study group stands for on the issues of Eternal Salvation, the Holy Spirit, Witnessing, Faith and Healing, Pre- or Post Tribulation Rapture? If you don’t know where you stand on these issues, then you need to make up your mind. You can study about all of these issues in this web site. They are covered quite extensively, and laid out for you on a sliver platter. If you haven’t already dived into these truths, that God has so freely given you, then I can’t understand why not? “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:15,16). “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lust shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (II Timothy 4:2-4). Beloved don’t let these verses be said of you! The hardest words for some to say is ” I was wrong”. It must be really hard on some peoples pride to admit that they have been following false doctrine or a false teacher or prophet, especially if they have been doing it for a long time. Are you noble in the eyes of the Lord? “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11). Or do you blindly just take the word of some man or pastor, like some poor weak sheep do, and get mislead into some false doctrine and lies of the devil. Remember the devil sometimes gives you some truths and then sneaks his poison lies in. Jesus said ; “If the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness.”(Matthew 6:23). “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” ( II Thessalonians 2: 10,11). Do you contend earnestly for the faith, and for the sheep? “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 1:3) Or are you going to let the grievous wolves devour the sheep with their unscriptural lies and false doctrines? “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.” (Acts 20: 28,29) Jesus warned us many times to beware of false prophets and teachers who will come in the end times and deceive many. “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Matthew 24: 24) “If they speak not according to the word it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20). Beloved this is a very serious matter. Be on guard, for the devil as a roaring lion goeth about seeking whom he may devour. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: “ (I Peter 5:8) “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. “ (II Corinthians 11:14). Some of these false teachers look like good old boys or dynamic preachers, don’t be mislead by looks and feelings. The devil can appear to be a real nice and friendly guy, or girl. “He gave them their request but sent leaness to their soul.”(Psalm 106:15 ) What will it take for the devil to buy you out? “And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you.” ( Matthew 24:4).
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen
