A Sister sometime ago was sharing a testimony of heaven and hell and how Jesus Christ said His coming is already very near, but the surprising thing was that a brother, one of the audience spoke and said “I don’t want Jesus Christ to come back now, because I’ve not yet gotten married”. This brother knows they don’t get married in heaven, so, he wants to have enjoyed the pleasures of marriage (which includes the pleasure of sex) before rapture would take place. The brother’s response might sound funny but that’s how majority of Christians are thinking today, the state of our minds reveals how dead we have become to God and His Kingdom such that we would choose to enjoy the pleasures of this world than to forever be with the Lord.
It’s so obvious that we are losing everything the early church fathers handed over to us, though we think we are gaining but we have already lost so much and kept on losing. Satan is giving us fake to take away the original from us, you think the pleasures of this world is better because you have not yet tasted of the pleasures of God’s Kingdom. The real world is in the Realm beyond here, I’m referring to the Realm of God, those of us who have tasted of this realm and live our lives from there cannot trade it for anything in this world. I will gladly give up everything in this world including my life to gain the Kingdom of God forever. You think this earthly world is good and okay?, It’s because you have not yet known God, His Kingdom and the depths of His presence, if you know, you will not want to stay here.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
My question to you is, Are you also losing it? Or Have you already lost it?
Have you traded your salvation and place in God’s Kingdom for certain things in this world? Have you traded your relationship with God for a sinful, ungodly and unholy relationship with someone or people in this world? Have you traded your fear of God, honor for God and obedience to God for money?
Why do you now trust in man than you trust in God?, Is it not a shame that you traded your personal prayer time and Bible study time for watching movies?
Where are your Christian values?, the early Christians would prefer to die than to do contrary to the values and lifestyle they upheld—What has happened to us?! Why is it so easy for you to forget your root in Christ while having conversations or talking with people (whether on the internet or anywhere)?
Few days ago, the Lord Jesus was speaking to me in an encounter, He said “Let them know that My Judgment is coming upon the Church and I will spare no one, they will all be destroyed”, Very soon, some “Christians” will pray in Jesus’ name and God will not answer their prayers, God will hand over the church to be destroyed by the enemy and even the anointed pastors will not escape the destruction. The Lord told me that He would ensure that those believers who have refused to repent and amend their ways don’t escape His wrath. This is not what some calls “tribulation”, this is God’s Judgment. The Lord said He is ready to start the Church all over again with the few people who have determined to please Him. Now, this is the picture, imagine a big and great nation is completely wiped out but some few number of people are left behind and God is going to build back the nation with the remnants left behind.
Maybe you are saying “I don’t believe you, how would a loving and merciful God do that”, Well, read your Bible very well and you will see how God’s judgment is no respecter of persons. Many in the Church today are hypocrites and deceivers, we are not what we claim to be in the public. Didn’t Jesus say He would spew out lukewarm Christians from His body?, So, watch out!
However, I would prefer that this message lead you to genuine repentance and rededication of your life to Jesus, you can’t play games with God, He is a terrible God.
I have realized that God is now keeping the truth far away from those who don’t want to hear it, they have shut their ears and hearts to the truth…God no longer bring the truth to them so as to hasten their destruction.
1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
I will stop here, May the suffering, bleeding, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ not be in vain in your life. Amen.
