You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. For, “In just a little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay.” Hebrews 10:36, 37
We are living in HARD and UNCERTAIN times, and I believe we truly are living in the LAST DAYS. But the message for God’s Children, those who have been washed and cleansed from their sins, is that we NEED to PERSEVERE.
How do we PERSEVERE in such HARD and UNCERTAIN times? First of all, we NEED to keep our HEARTS clean from sin, to be able KEEP our fellowship with God. UNCONFESSED SIN will break our fellowship with God. In order to PERSEVERE, we must have a STRONG, HEALTHY prayer life, but if we are harboring UNCONFESSED SINS, God will NOT hear our prayers, until CONFESSION of those sins is made.
When we come to God with a CLEAN HEART, free from the UNCONFESSED SIN, He will not only, hear our prayers, but will give us the STRENGTH to PERSEVERE. So we NEED to be “PRAYED UP,” which will enhance our relationship with God, and will strengthen our FAITH, thus giving us the ability to PERSEVERE in ALL our situations.
In verse thirty-seven, the Author of Hebrews tells us that: “In just a little while, He who is coming will come and will NOT delay.” If the Author felt that way, all those many, many years ago, how much more should we believe it NOW! The times in which we are presently living are somewhat indicative of the culmination of this age, and I believe it will escalate into a much worse scenario, before the RAPTURE of God’s Children.
Therefore, we MUST PERSEVERE and STAND STRONG in our FAITH, so that we can carry out the will of God, not just concerning our own SALVATION, but in order to be a PROPER WITNESS to a lost and dying world. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are a part of the LOST and DYING world, which is on its way to an ETERNITY in Hell, the place of torment, torture, pain and despair, with NO way of escape. But God is NOW giving you the opportunity to turn from your sins and come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART and to CONFESS your sins to Him and to ask 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 be able to PERSEVERE these HARD and UNCERTAIN times, while waiting for His return. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
