Luke 13:3; I tell you, Nay: but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
The Lord has placed upon my heart today, a message that calls those who name the name of the Lord Jesus to repent of their sin and compromise with the world. The Lord Jesus said to the Laodiceans in the book of Revelation that their lukewarmness, and compromise with sin, would cause them to be spued out of His mouth. Revelation 3:14-19 states; And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent.
The Lord Jesus is calling us as followers of Him to repent of our lukewarmness and compromise with sin. It is time that we who are of the household of faith understand, that the Lord Jesus is returning for a bride that is spotless and without blemish. He is coming for a bride that is completely on fire for Him. The lukewarm church here in America is preaching a gospel of convenience which that tickles the ears of those listening to its message. So called christians today have forsaken the truth of the Gospel of Jesus for a gospel that is false. It is time for the church to wake up, for the day of the Lord is at hand. There is no time to play church. Our lamps must be full, and we must be waiting for the Lord with our whole hearts, minds, and souls. it is time that we surrender our whole hearts and lives to the Lord, for if we do not do this, the Lord Jesus will spue us out of His mouth, and we will be counted as goats, and not sheep. The Lord Jesus said that many are called but few are chosen. Those that are the chosen of the Lord must prepare their hearts now, for we are living in the last days, and our redemption draws near.
My brethren, it is time that we seek the Lord with every fiber of our being. We must do this in Spirit and in Truth. We must accept the Lord's chastening, and His rebuke and not resist it, by seeking out false teachers that will tell us what it is that we want to hear. We should welcome the chastening of the Lord, for He tells us that for those He loves, He chastens. it is time that we seek the truth of the Gospel, and accept that the Lord's Gospel is not only one of love, but of repentance as well. Repentance means to turn from our sin. We must make a 180 degree turn from our rebellion and sin and ask forgiveness for having disobeyed God's most Holy Word. A simple prayer stating that we are sorry for our sin, and then continuing on in our sinful lifestyle is not enough. We must come to the Lord Jesus with a humble and contrite heart that is grieved because we have transgressed against His Holy Word, and His will for our lives. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Being a good person is not enough to make us right with the Lord. We must accept the fact that we are sinners, and that we need a Saviour. We must accept God's free gift of Salvation and understand that we must turn from our sin if we are to be saved. Will you turn from your sin today and be saved?
The false gospel that is being preached today is one that says that all paths lead to salvation, and not through Jesus alone. It also teaches that the grace of God is a license to sin, and that to sin is just a normal part of being human. This teaching also espouses the idea that we can sin, and God will understand, and overlook our transgressions. None of this is true, and if this is what you believe, then you are treading on dangerous ground. For the Lord will not strive with man, and He will not be mocked. These teachings are heretical, and are of the devil. The Lord Jesus calls us to be holy as He is holy. We are called to be salt and light in this fallen world, and if the salt has lost its savor, then it is good for nothing. Are you salt and light, or are you something else? My brethren, do not listen to the lies of the enemy that seeks to kill, steal, and destroy your very souls. Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the Church at this time. The Spirit is telling us that we are to repent of our lukewarmness and compromise. We must heed this message, and repent in sackcloth and ashes for our blatant sin and compromise, for the day is coming when our space of time to repent will be no longer. We must humble ourselves before the Lord, and come to Him in repentance now. We must turn from our sin, and fall into the loving and forgiving arms of our Lord Jesus.
In closing, I want you to know that you are loved, and that the Lord Jesus waits with open arms for you to comlpetely and totally surrender to Him, and His will for your lives. He is calling all of those who name His name to turn from their sin now, and trust in Him. The time has come when we must allow the Holy Spirit to use us in this lost and fallen world, to win those who are lost and do not know the Lord Jesus. Will you surrender to the Lord now? Will you repent of your sin now? Will you become salt and light once again? The Lord Jesus is calling you to make a decision for Him in this hour. What will your decision be?
The problem with this country is we don't have Christianity, we have Churchanity. Too many Christians think being a Christian is going to church on Saturday or Sunday and being a Pagan the rest of the time. Being a true Christian is a 24 an hour and 7 day a week job. A lot of these so-called Christians claim to be saved by still keep doing the same sins over and over.A lot of ministers and church leaders are willing to tell people what they want to hear instead of telling what they need to hear as long a dollars are put in the collection plate and sent to keep then on radio-TV.
Jesus said "In end times, many will come in my name, few will be true messagers".
