The Day of the Lord Will Come (Video)

Why do most Christians say that they believe that Christ can come back at any time but don’t act accordingly? This has been a question that has occupied my mind for some time now. Although we have not yet recognized the man of lawlessness or the dreaded Antichrist, we have all seen the tremendous increase in lawlessness and the many other signs of Christ’s coming. I have personally written about these prophetic signs for many years now, simply adding my voice to the many apostles and prophets that have come before us since the dawn of Christianity (See II Peter 3:1-3). After watching this timely video on my secure website, please share it with others.

The Day of the Lord Will Come

Why do most Christians say that they believe that Christ can come back at any time but don’t act accordingly? This has been a question that has occupied my mind for some time now. Although we have not yet recognized the man of lawlessness or the dreaded Antichrist, we have all seen the tremendous increase in lawlessness and the many other signs of Christ’s coming. I have personally written about these prophetic signs for many years now, simply adding my voice to the many apostles and prophets that have come before us since the dawn of Christianity (See II Peter 3:1-3). These prophetic signs have become so obvious in our day among most who call upon the Name of Christ that I am appalled that there is such little righteousness observed. It’s as if a dark cloud of lawlessness has engulfed all of humanity, including many who call upon the Name of Christ. I pray that you are not numbered among the lawless, because the Day of the Lord will come, and His coming is imminent. So, how can we be certain that we are not numbered among the lawless? Please continue reading for the time is short and my heart is breaking for many of my friends and family who will not be ready for Christ’s coming.

The true measure of success is our continued spiritual growth in Christ, which must continue from the moment we first believed in Christ to the moment we are caught up to heaven. I am sad to say that most have not even begun the journey beyond their initial acceptance of Jesus Christ. I am sad to say that many have learned well how to play church or just get their free ticket to Heaven, and then fall back into the ways of the world. The good news is that we are not expected to make this journey alone. We are not expected to grow spiritually on our own through hard work and discipline. Just reading the Bible daily like you do the morning paper or saying your rehearsed prayers three times a day will not be of any benefit without the help of the indwelling Spirit. Unfortunately, many in the fallen world have attempted the journey through the discipline of other world religions or pagan rituals but will never attain to the height of true spiritual maturity and the glories of heavenly bliss. They will not be ready for the coming Day of the Lord. So, dear children, let us follow only the Christian Way.  Let us prepare our minds for the greatest journey ever taken by humanity.

So, our starting point must be welcoming our Holy Resident into every area of our life, which the Bible refers to as being filled with the Spirit (See Ephesians 5:18). It is He alone, who will help us to grow from one degree of glory to another. The Bible says, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (John 14:26). Unfortunately, many spurn this wonderful gift from God by grieving the Spirit, which they do by not listening to Him or turning a deaf ear (See Ephesians 4:30). So, our next task is learning how to listen to the indwelling Spirit. This is where most Christians falter. They listen to their own heart, they listen to their desires, and they listen to their limited understanding, or what they have been taught by the fallen world. We must clear our minds completely and only listen to God through the indwelling Spirit. This will give you a completely different way of reading your Bible or listening to others who claim to speak for God. What does God say? This will give you a completely different way to pray by learning how to listen through many hours of deep prayer and meditation. Always asking what does God say (See Revelation 2:11)?

Those who have gone on before us, have learned well what God has said about the necessity of spiritual growth, by putting off the old life, and putting on the new life in Christ. This is a process; this is the journey. If you are not on the journey, then you will not be ready for Christ’s coming soon to usher in the Day of the Lord. Read slowly and carefully Ephesians 4:17-32 asking God to convict you concerning His Word. This passage of Scripture talks extensively about putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. Every time you pick up the Bible read it slowly and carefully until you feel a warning in your heart until you are convicted to ask the indwelling Spirit to help you put off the old life. Believe me, if the Spirit of God is in you, then you will be convicted. You will cry out to God in repentance asking for His forgiveness. I have always read the Bible, without stopping, until I am convicted so that I can put off the old life. Putting off the old life is only one-half of growing up in Christ. If you don’t put the good in place of the bad, then the bad will always come back. This is an extremely powerful truth that must be practiced if you are serious about spiritual growth.

So, our next task in spiritual growth is replacing the bad with the good. We do this by putting on the new life in Christ. A simple illustration will suffice. If I tell you to stop being hateful to others by cursing at them or doing all manner of evil to them in your mind, and then you decide to stop this bad behavior that’s a good thing, but you need to do one more thing. You need to put on the new life in Christ by being kind to others, by only speaking words of love and encouragement. You must fill your mind with only good thoughts about them. This is a complete reversal that’s only truly possible by submitting to the will of Christ through the indwelling Spirit. We simply don’t have the power on our own to change all of our bad behavior. All the counseling, drugs, and rehabilitation will not completely change your behavior. The only thing that will completely change our behavior is putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ through faith. This is the Spirit’s job. So, let’s learn how to listen to the indwelling Spirit and allow Him to do His work. His work is to make you into a new creation. It’s a process. It is the journey every believer needs to be on if he wants to be ready for Christ’s coming. The Day of the Lord will come, sooner than you think.

If you look at the world today everyone is planning for a grandiose future even in the midst of their extreme lawlessness. It seems like the entire world is waging war against one another with little thought of love or turning the other cheek. Their so-called righteousness is little more than filthy rags. The world will not be ready for Christ’s coming to usher in the Day of the Lord. The Bible speaks plainly about that Day when it says, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (II Peter 3:10). If the Lord returns as a thief in the night, then I hope you understand it makes little difference what you believe about the timing of Christ’s arrival. Things will happen so quickly you will have no time left for Spiritual growth. You will have no time left to get on the journey. My heart aches for those who will not be ready. The signs of Christ’s coming are everywhere. At the writing of this article, we are seeing multiple earthquakes in California and around the world with dangerously high temperatures in Southern California recording 130° in Death Valley. If we add to this the many raging forest fires it should give us a clear picture of things to come. Wake up dear children the Day of the Lord will come, soon! Are you growing spiritually, every day? I pray that you will be ready.

Please Join me in Prayer …

Good morning Heavenly Father. As self-righteous and prideful men work ever so hard to build their utopia, we as your children look beyond our present reality to a new home filled with agape love and true righteousness. We pray that all of our energy and aspirations will be directed to this coming reality and not consumed with trying to fix what’s broken by whitewashing the unrighteousness of sinful men through the adoption of acceptance and tolerance. We pray that we, your beloved children, will prepare for the promise of the new heavens and a new earth by walking in righteousness every hour of every day. We pray that you will give us strength and wisdom to work every day to strengthen the righteousness of others by teaching them how to walk closer to you, our God. We pray that we can teach them to do this in total dependence, trusting in you alone to complete the process of making us, transforming us, into beautiful new creations. Lead us to be consumed with this work alone as we eagerly look forward to new heavens and a new earth. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Reading from the King James Version, the Bible says …

“Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (II Peter 3:12-13).

Sowing and Reaping – God Sees (Video)

God sees everything is probably one of the most amazing verses in the Bible. I would venture to say that most of humanity doesn’t know that and the ones that do, rarely think about it. Yet, the Bible says, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3). “Both the evil and the good,” I can’t even imagine how God must feel as He beholds all the evil in the world, all of it, instantly as it’s happening, in real-time.

Sowing and Reaping – God Sees

God sees everything is probably one of the most amazing verses in the Bible. I would venture to say that most of humanity doesn’t know that and the ones that do, rarely think about it. Yet, the Bible says, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3). “Both the evil and the good,” I can’t even imagine how God must feel as He beholds all the evil in the world, all of it, instantly as it’s happening, in real-time. Just to say, it breaks His heart, which I am sure It does, misses the depth of what’s happening. God since the creation of the world has put forth and established certain rules that govern all of nature including the crown of creation, humanity. There is no escaping it, there is no way to get around it. There is the law of cause and effect. For every cause, there is an effect. It is the rule of nature and the only one in the universe that can change it is God, or one in whom God empowers. More about that later. For now, let’s concentrate on the cause and effect, especially as to how it’s related to all of humanity, without exception.

Typically, when any kind of premise, like the premise of cause and effect, is stated, it will be mocked. To mock this premise, which is a rule of nature, is to mock the Creator, the one who established the building blocks of creation. Now let’s look at His established Word once again, the Bible says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:7-8). God sets forth the premise of sowing and reaping. The law of cause and effect, you will always reap what you sow. We will look at the negative first. “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption.” Cause and effect! So, let’s look briefly at what sowing to the flesh means. We will move from the general to the specific. Generally speaking, anything done to the body, the soul, or the mind, that’s harmful, either intentionally or through willful neglect is sowing to the flesh. This is the cause, and the effect is reaping corruption.

So, before we elaborate on the corruption, let’s get a bit more specific in sowing things to the flesh, which are inherently harmful. Of course, most believers could immediately come up with a catalog of sins, and they would be correct because every sin has a profound effect upon the mind, the body, and the soul, which is the flesh. For example, we all know that gluttony (overeating) or purposely eating processed food, or any other kind of food that’s not good for you will harm the body leading to obesity and a myriad of different diseases or health-related problems. Cause and effect. Another example is we all know that laziness, the desire to lie around the house all day, or our unwillingness to work will also have a powerful effect upon the whole body, mind, and soul leading to mental anguish, psychological problems, and physical poverty. The list could go on and on, but we can easily see there is cause and effect. Our wrong thinking and actions will always lead to tragic circumstances. Cause and effect. Now we need to multiply this exponentially as we look at all of humanity in the midst of their chaos.

God has given humanity His beautiful laws to govern all of our thinking and actions to keep us from going off the proverbial cliff. Well, humanity has rejected those laws choosing to legislate their own morality. They have become a law unto themselves reaping the consequences of their bad behavior. They have all been sowing to the flesh and now they are all reaping corruption. Every new disease and every new virus are getting far worse, reaping death and destruction across the entire planet. Mankind is reaping what he has sown. God will not be mocked. He sees every action precipitated by every evil thought. Humanity can point its finger all day long to the accepted causes of the current COVID-19 virus, the alarming increase in global warming, and the unbelievable chaos in the world with its nonending riots and mass shootings, but they will not ever admit to the real cause. We are reaping what we have sown. Rejection of God’s Law in the Schoolroom and the halls of Government has caused an epidemic of crime, sexual immorality, and unheard-of perversions. It has caused the horrific weather patterns around the entire world that keep getting worse every day, not to mention the increasing so-called natural disasters. As the entire world sinks into oblivion for their rejection of God, it’s difficult to paint a clear picture of things to come. Hollywood has been trying to paint this picture for many years now with their ever-increasing “end of the world” movies, but nothing will capture the real horror of the things to come.

As the world passes new laws, one after another, to fix what they believe is causing their problems, they will slip deeper and deeper into the abyss trying to drag God’s children with them. New laws will be passed requiring psychological counseling and the taking of prescribed drugs and vaccinations to fight every new epidemic or ever-increasing lawlessness. As mass murders and suicides skyrocket even more laws will be passed to no avail. Dear friends, we have one of the greatest challenges ahead of us. Let’s pray that we are up to the task. As the world falls apart and it will, then they will finally discover that all their psychological counseling was useless as humanity is ready to explode. We must step up to the plate allowing God to work through us. Last week we talked about confronting an evil world. Today we will discuss how to become even more effective in confronting an evil world by sowing to the Spirit and not to the flesh. Sowing to the flesh will be of no value as we confront an evil world. So, we must die to self along with all of our selfish ambitions. The Bible says, “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts” (Galatians 5:24). When you die to self and allow the Spirit of God to come and dwell in your hearts, then you will have taken the first step in sowing to the Spirit.

The Bible says, “… but we that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:8). Step by step we will learn how to live in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, and bear fruit of the Spirit. This will give you a completely different mindset, not an earthly mindset of being self-centered, but a heavenly mindset of being other-centered. Remember, that Jesus Christ did not come as a rich man, setting up charities, and giving His money to the poor. No, He reinstituted the beautiful Law and showed humanity a better way of living for others. He came to give Himself completely to others every moment of every day. Even many of His great miracles of healing reversed the natural law of cause and effect through their, God given, faith. When we sow in the natural world, we cultivate, fertilize, and water the seedlings so that they grow. We do the same in the spiritual world by keeping in step with the Spirit and by following His lead in our every thought and action. We will soon discover that our every thought and action is about doing good to others by only speaking the truth wrapped in love. It’s only the truth that will set them free (See John 8:32). The Bible says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:9-10). Dear children, to speak the truth and to do good to all men will do more than all of their laws, all of their counseling, and all of their political maneuvering. Let us be the change that the world desperately needs by giving ourselves to all that has a need.

Please join me in prayer …

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for sending us the indwelling Spirit, our true Helper in all things. We know that the more we seek you in our ministry to others, the easier it becomes, and greater is the reward. We know in the beginning it’s quite difficult because most people don’t have the patience to wait upon you to fill them with your Spirit. Yet, without the Spirit we are nothing, nor can we do anything to really help others on how they should be helped. We are especially thankful for giving us the exact words to say at the appropriate time to bear their burden, especially if they have been overtaken in a trespass. We know the more we cultivate our relationship with the Spirit, the easier it becomes to really be good to others in a way that truly helps them. We pray that all of your children will continue to sow to the Spirit so that they can receive a harvest of Spiritual fruit and gifts to be used in being good to others, that is, to truly help them. We humbly pray this the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Reading from the King James Version, the Bible says …

“For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:8).

Living with Your Holy Resident

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”  (I Corinthians 3:16)

As believers in Christ, we all know this truth. We are the temple of God’s Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, for most, it hasn’t sunk in. It’s something they believe but have not acted upon. I can remember dating my wife and inviting her to my home for a visit, but things changed when she moved in and it became permanent. All of a sudden, we were doing things together all the time, which meant my behavior was front and center. Now, plans were made together and agreed upon in advance. Even trips to the grocery store took on a whole new dynamic, realizing that there was more than one kind of milk. It didn’t take long to realize that we had our own way of doing things. We also had different likes and dislikes. Although this joyously turned my whole world upside down, it was well worth the journey. In time we truly became one, and she will always tell you that she is my better half. Today, I would like to speak to you about another full-time resident. This one too must be invited in, to take up residence in your heart for the rest of your life. Continue reading Living with Your Holy Resident
