The Last Day
31 December 2015 / 20 Tevet 5776 @ 11:44 PM
Today is the last day of 2015, and I would like to share what the
Lord has put on my heart with whomsoever would like to read this message. For
those who are followers of Jesus Christ, I pray that the coming year will bring
many lost souls into God’s Kingdom by your efforts, and mine!
We have to be very attentive to the voice of the Lord. He still
speaks, but most people are not able to hear Him because they don't believe He
can speak to them; or they are so busy with the cares of this life; or
something, or someone, is more important to them than God.
For all who name the name of Christ, we must strive to obey God’s
word from our hearts! Sometimes with all the pressures and responsibilities of
this life we can neglect the very thing that we desperately need, and that is
God’s Word being central to everything that we say and do! But in order for that
to happen we have to open the Book and read it.
There is much to distract us, but we cannot allow anything to get
in the way of serving God. As Christians, His holy word is vital to our lives,
and I pray we remain faithful and resolute to fulfill our mission for Christ!
Please consider these convicting words from the brother of our
James 1:22- 27 “But
be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man
beholding his natural face in a glass:
For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what
manner of man he was.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein,
he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be
blessed in his deed.
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but
deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the
fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted
from the world.”
We must stand against the evils of the age, and stand up for the
cause of Christ, as we are led by His Spirit! There are way too many lukewarm
Christians and “soft” preachers and teachers who are just sin enablers, and they
are not causing people to see the great need to repent!
The enemy of our soul greatly desires to lead us away from God,
but please don't let him! I encourage you to look to the Lord for everything!
You may not have a lot of physical or “spiritual” help from others,
including from those in your own household, but I pray it will not remain that
way! Nonetheless, God knows everything you are going through!
God wants to abundantly bless His people, but He is not pleased
if we are guilt of mixing the ways of the world in with things that are holy!
May this be the season that men and fathers awake up out of their sleep so they
can be the Godly leaders God intended for them to be!
Please consider "The
Gift," a poem God allowed me to write years ago. And as you read those words
may they spur you on to be faithfully committed to the glorious One who gave us
the free gift of eternal life, the most wonderful prize of all!
With the love of Christ,
