Good Morning all, I pray this day finds you well. Let's just get down to business. This world has gone crazy. No not really, this world is going to plan. If you read this blog then you know what it is about, JESUS and the life that only he can bring. Some could come here seeking because they are scared of the world but we have to remember what Jesus says in John 16:33-"These things I have spoken to you, that IN ME you may have PEACE. In the world you WILL have tribulation BUT be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." Jesus tells us plainly that we will have troubles, problems but in him and him alone we can find that peace. We have long since stop listening to Jesus. We have listened to world far too long. We have went to asleep and now God is waking you up. Jesus also told us in John 15:19- "If you were of the world , the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." But go back to the previous Scripture- "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you." If any of you are watching what is going on around the world, you know right at this very moment the world loves all that God despises and hates all that God loves. So why would you think that Christ followers would be any different. If you follow Christ Jesus than you know that he has brought you out of the darkness and into the light. John 12:46- "I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in ME should not abide in darkness." He calls us out. We live in this crazy, mixed up world but if you have Jesus than you are not of this world. In 2 Timothy 2:23-26 God tells us not to get into foolish debates, things of the world. "But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife. And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will. " The last part is that the devil is in control of the world and that is why people are acting the way they want to. We must portray Jesus at all cost. But if you go on down just into chapter 3 look at what it says: " But know this that in the last day perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, WITHOUT SELF-CONTROL, BRUTAL, DESPISERS OF GOOD, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! See God's in control, he knew this was going to happen. We just need to do what it says in chapter 4; "I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who WILL judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom; PREACH THE WORD!!! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they WILL NOT endure SOUND DOCTRINE, but according to their OWN DESIRES, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they WILL turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. BUT YOU be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, FULFILL YOUR MINISTRY! Pastors, if you are preaching what people want to hear then you are failing at your job. But if you are making people uncomfortable with their life and seeing redemption then you are doing your job. Please fulfill the ministry that God has laid upon your heart. We need more of you that is not afraid of the truth and don't care about the dollars. And you lay people, that is not preachers and teachers, open that old dusty Bible ask God to reveal Himself to you and what He is calling you to do and let's start a revival around the world of Jesus. Have a blessed day and RISE UP!
