I have sat wondering why so much hatred is going on and I remembered that in the 1 chapter of Job, Satan tells God he has been going to and fro on the earth. Well, I found my answer why there is so much hatred. It also shows us there are a lot of hearts without the Holy Spirit living inside them. So I am calling out to the Christians today. I don't care if you go to church on a regular basis, I don't care if you have a Bible Study in your home or serve dinner at church, or if you teach at church. I am calling those who try to live as God calls us. I am calling on those who let the Holy Spirit guide their lives. I am calling on you to take a stand for God. I am calling you to be on fire. Not fight, not argue but also not back down. And if one doesn't want to do listen, I beg of you do what Jesus did. Matthew 10:11-14. "Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave. As you enter the home, give it your greeting. If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. IF anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet." He tells us if they don't want to hear God's word then walk away. No fighting, no arguing. But also make sure you know what you are saying is coming from the Lord. Because if you are living in the Holy Spirit only the truth will come out. Go on down to verse 16. "I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Be on your guard; you will be handed over to local councils and be flogged in the synagogues." He knows that when we talk of God and teach of God we will be hated. He tells us how to be. But now jump down to verse 19. "But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say OR how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you." Come on Christians when are we going to get it together. If you have noticed or read any of my other posts, I am usually harder on Christians than non-believers. Why? Because God is. He tells us how to act and we call ourselves Christians but do not do what God has called us to do. So I can see how we have become the church that is describe in Revelations. Revelations 3:14. "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God's creation. I KNOW YOUR DEEDS, that you NEITHER COLD OR HOT. I wish you were either one or the other! So,because you are lukewarm-neither hot nor cold- I am about to spit you out of my mouth." Come on fellow Christians let's set this world on fire for Jesus. Get out of your comfortable, open that Bible on the shelf and let's move. I would love to see a protest for Jesus and hearts on fire for Jesus. Have a blessed day! RISE UP!
