"Be Patient and Stand Firm!"

ďBe Patient and Stand Firm!Ē Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lordís coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting to the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lordís coming is near. Donít grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! James 5:7-9 PATIENCE is an attribute that is not very common in our world, today. We have a lifestyle that almost DEMANDS that we be IMPATIENT in EVERYTHING we do or expect to be done by others. But the Word of God tells us that we, the TRUE believers SHOULD be PATIENT. The length of our PATIENCE should be until the Lord Jesus returns. The analogy of the farmer who WAITS for the land to yield its valuable crop, and is PATIENTLY waiting for the autumn and spring rains, is the ESSENCE of PATIENCE. The TRUE believer SHOULD be PATIENT and STAND FIRM, because the Lordís return is NEAR. And the anticipation of His return SHOULD stimulate EVERY TRUE BELIEVER to be PATIENT AND PERSISTENT. In view of the HOPE of Christís SOON return, Godís Children, those who have REPENTED of their sins and have ACCEPTED His gift of SALVATION, SHOULD be on guard for His return. In so doing, GOOD BEHAVIOR and MUTUAL HARMONY are essential to escape judgement. You should NOT grumble against one another, time is short and people are dying and going to Hell, while in most cases, those who proclaim to be Godís Children are at each otherís throats, complaining about things that are of very little if any importance, instead of being about Godís business, which is REACHING the LOST. They try to tear each other down instead of being obedient to the Word of the Living God, which tells us that we SHOULD edify or build-up the BODY of CHRIST, and how can that be done if the TRUE BELIEVERS are busy TEARING DOWN the BODY OF CHRIST, by grumbling against one another. Be on GUARD! The Judge, Jesus is standing at the door! Heís waiting for His Heavenly Father to give the nod!! If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are at RISK of being swept away into the very abyss of Hell. Unless you change your direction and come to Jesus Christ for your REDEMPTION, which is near, at hand. You can do that by: CONFESSING your sins to God, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and WAITING with PATIENCE for His return, STAND FIRM with PERSISTENCE in your FAITH. Do it NOW, while you still can. Heís WAITING and coming SOON!!!
