Things are getting worse and worse every day. People are overdosing, there are more cases of the virus, people are dying from the virus, jobs being done away with, depression and anxiety on every hand, church people filled with so much anxiety that they require medication. Jesus tells us that is the Lord that healeth thee. By his stripe, we are healed.
We try to carry out load, but that is not our job. We must pray that God’s will will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I don’t know how long the world can be lost. Everything is a mess—a BIG mess. Church, are you praying and seeking God’s will? Only God can change things.
Another year will soon be upon us, but what will it hold for us? Make sure when prophecies are given that they are of God, not man. If they don’t come to pass, they are not from God. Don’t believe everything you are told. Check it out by prayer and supplication, not man’s word.
God cannot lie. He is truth and life. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Preachers, we need to get ahold of the horns of the altar and hear fresh and anew from God. Woe to the shepherd who scatters the sheep. We are called to preach the gospel. Isaiah 61 tells us what our jobs as pastors and preachers are.
Fear must go. We must seek God. He must be first in our lives while he can be found. We need men and women today like Daniel, Deborah, Esther and Noah, willing to di for the gospel. Are we as preachers ready to stand for God, not matter what comes our way? The joy of the Lord is our strength. The bible tells me when I am weak, I am made strong in Christ. We must study to show ourselves a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. God has put you as shepherd over the flock. We will stand and give account of the decision we make concerning the church.
The psalmist David said create in me a clean heart. We need the mind of Christ; not what man tells us to do. Pastors are responsible whether we want to acknowledge it or not. We must remind Satan that the blood of Jesus is against him. And when we submit ourselves to God, and resist the devil, he has to flee from us. What will you do with the word of God? I’ve given you the word, what you will do with it is up to you.
Yours in Christ Jesus
