It is easy to get weary waiting for Jesus. Thousands of years have passed and God has not returned. The amount of pagans are increasing in the land and doubters mock your belief. They didn’t see the rain in Noah’s day and they will not see the fire until it is too late. Ungodly people coupled with your own flesh make it hard to live holy and be perfect, as we are instructed to be (1 Peter 1:16, Matthew 5:48).
People that regress don’t take inventory of their life. What activities have you allowed into your life that chokes the word of God? Before you were saved, you drank alcohol, you enjoyed the taste of wine and when Jesus entered your life you gave it up. Now you’re regressing and drinking again. Be careful. The one who endures to the end will be saved (Matthew 24:13). Demons attack lukewarm Christians the most because they can’t be used by him fully and they have the potential to destroy some of his kingdom, if they ever wake up and get on fire for Jesus. He doesn’t need to attack his children as they comply with his instructions and those on fire for the Lord, he uses long strategy plans to limit the destruction they cause on his kingdom.
Therefore, since Christ suffered in His body, arm yourselves with the same resolve, because anyone who has suffered in his body is done with sin (1 Peter 4:1). The Christian walk is one with suffering. Yes! There is joy, love, and peace, but your existing flesh screams to commit treason against God. You are responsible to kill it daily. Take time to balance the checkbook of your life and identify if you are guilty of regressing. Jesus is coming with his rewards for the faithful. Think of it this way. If you didn’t get the promotion, the car, the mansion, the million dollar contract, you can get and keep that in heaven. Remember, the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. (Revelation 21:21). The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty (Haggai 2:8). God has some expensive taste and loves to share with his most faithful children.
Keep pressing in Jesus name. Jesus is coming. Let’s be and stay prepared.
It is important for the believer in Jesus Christ to understand what time it is for them. The time determines your function in Christ. When it was not time for Jesus to turn the other cheek, he chased the thieves and robbers in the temple away. When it is was not time for Jesus to be killed, he slipped through the crowds without a scratch. What time is it for you? What time is God saying it is?
I have heard whispers that this year is the year of repentance. A time to sway the anger of God and miss planned destruction for 2017. God has always been a democratic God and chooses world leaders based upon the masses. It is how Saul was elected King in the Old Testament even though the prophet Samuel knew he was a bad choice, he was told by God to anoint him. God will give the masses the leader they want. God told the people he would enslave them, but they ignored God’s warning and so they suffered.
What will the masses do today? Sexual immorality is rampant. Injustice is rampant. Those who stand for anything worth something are ridiculed and those who support demonic activity are exalted and praised for being progressive. What will this behavior do? Bring the judgment of God. When the storms come and they will. When God removes hedges of protection from people, then will Satan turn his wrath on humans and destroy them with drugs, alcohol, sickness, disease, rape, incest, beastuality, and whatever twisted imagination he can convince man to find pleasure in.
Your life means something to God, but he will allow you to choose to destroy it, by choosing Satan’s wisdom over his. Every generation has quasi wise men who think they can outsmart God or have the answers to life without submitting to the One who created all. This delusion was the mistake of the fallen angels who are now bound to be destroyed in hell at the proper time.
What time is it? Look to your right and what does the clock say? Ask Jesus to give you the time.
Heavenly Father, what time is it? Is it time to quit Bible study and hide in your home? Is it time to give up and throw in the towel? What time is it Lord? Show me the time of the clock on the wall and strengthen me to follow what you show me. In Jesus name.
Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine. Guide older men into lives of temperance, dignity, and wisdom, into healthy faith, love, and endurance. Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don’t want anyone looking down on God’s Message because of their behavior. Also, guide the young men to live disciplined lives. – Titus 2:1-6

Since the very beginning in the Garden of Eden the mission of the devil has been the same. To convince mankind that they are gods and don’t need a Savior. They are the architects of their destiny and determine their future apart from God. His lie has remained successful from the very beginning with few receiving salvation and the vast majority giving up their souls for temporary pleasure.
No one on earth is without excuse and God simple wants his children to live quiet lives for him. Contend for the faith, but don’t expect the ungodly to change just because you pray or flood them with love. The majority of the things God desires his children to perform will benefit the one performing them. You will spend eternity in heaven. God will hear your prayers when you cry out to him. You will see, hear, and perform impossible feats that few will ever be aware of. Your rewards on earth are only a fraction of the things that God has in store for those who love him.
Once you apply the title Christian to your life, you must get ready for every type of temptation to be thrown your way. Especially, if the Lord is blessing you with financial increase. Satan will use whatever he can to destroy your testimony, cause you to commit suicide, despair life, and doubt Gods love. You must stay the course by determining in your heart that you will not cease to feed on God’s law and always repent and pray. Never letting go of the basics of fasting and praying that God would send his ministering angels to deliver and set you free from the hand of Satan’s children.
When Satan’s children attack you and slander you, always remember they did the same to Jesus and the disciples and prophets. Joseph was accused of rape and sent to prison, Jesus accused of blasphemy and riots, Paul accussed of rioting and creating disturbances in the community. Daniel accused of sinning against the King and thrown into the lions den. There is a plethora of stories of men and women who died for believing in a fake Jesus with no power. No they died because Satan filled the hearts of their enemies and desired to kill the gospel.
Keep your eyes on the Lord Jesus Christ and never forget your rewards are like bonds that when mature produce a far greater reward on the back end then what it cost to purchase them in the beginning.
