THE NIGHT IS FAR SPENT; the day is at hand, therefore let us cast off the works of darkness … (Romans 13:13).
The Bible tells us that we are in perillous time … The last days … End time … (2 Tim. 3:1-5). A time where people will not endue hard and sound doctrine (2 Tim. 4:1-4), it’s a time where people will gather teachers for themselves, to tell them what they want to hear. A time where godless and indecent dressing will be welcomed and applauded (Isa. 3:16-25; Prov. 7:10), a time of few truth and many lies in the pulpit. It’s a time of apostasy, where people will curse those who proclaim, ‘ Jesus is coming soon’. A time of weak love for God and for Church (Matt. 24:12) … It’s a time where television takes the place of the family altar, a time where people live without love for Jesus, Heaven and fear of going to hell fire.
Where is the fire as it used to be on the altar? ‘…the fire shall continually burn on the altar…’ saith the Scripture (Leviticus 6:13). The end-time is the time we’re in, where the supper room has taken over the upper room, where concerts has taken over prayer meetings, alas, by this we’ve grieved the Spirit and He is gone from us. People prefer spending three stretched hours in entertainment than in prayers and studying of God’s Word. Our teenagers would rather attend a music concert than go to a prayer meeting where their godless soul will meet with God … They rather read 3 godless, romance, sinful best sellers than a Bbok of the Bible … They rather dress naked, in the name of fashion than dress decent, covering their sensitive parts. What’s happening to the world? I know – We’re in the very last seconds before the trumpet will sound and yet many live as though they’re landlords in this temporary, sin-cursed earth.
When was the last time you cried out from your soul because of the message you heard from the pulpit? Many so called ‘pastor’ do nothing but feed their congregations with junks of prosperity, money making, miracle messages without a genuine salvation of a single soul, no heaven and hell fire message, the gospel is a balanced one, preaching only one side of it is a lot of harm to the hearers – if people are not told, like Jesus told the Pharisees, to flee from the wrath to come, how then can they live with eternity in view?
We mistake rattling of tongues for revival, organizing for agonizer, these things are good but it’s dangerous to have all spiritual gifts without holiness for I’m told, ‘…without holiness … No man shall see thee Lord.’ (Heb. 12:14).
Jesus is coming back again, what if He comes right now, as you’re reading this article, how you SURE you’ll make it? Oh Dear, if there are some sin in your hearts, forget it! Where will you spend eternity?
If you’ve NOT given your life to Jesus Chrsit before or you have but backslided then pray with me:
“Dear Lord Jesus,
I come to you this day asking for forgiveness for all my sins. I have sinned against you, wash me with your precious blood, write my name in your Book. I confess my sins before you and forsake them, come Jesus, come into my heart and be the Lord of my soul, spirit and body, Amen.”
Welcome to God’s family! Read your Bible daily and maintain a daily prayer life and devotion with God, stay away from bad friends and live with eternity in view.
