The world is in darkness. Wickedness and cruelty is on the increase. Natural disasters are being unleashed back-to-back, epidemics, plagues and many more.
Souls are perishing. Men and women are looking to all the wrong places and things for “satisfaction”. Souls are walking into hell everyday, passing by you and me.
The darkness in the world can almost be felt as scriptures predict. Now is the time for us to “turn” on our lights and glorify our Father. “We” must turn on the lights. Most Believers seem to be satisfied that they are saved and heaven bound, with little or no care for their perishing neighbours, colleagues, relatives, co-travellers and so on.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:16 – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
“Let” suggests to me that we have to allow the light of God in us to be revealed to this dark world or else we would be doing what Jesus calls improper-Lighting a candle and hiding it under the table. Matthew 5:15
Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favour, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him].
2 Corinthians 5:17, 18 (Amplified)
When Jesus came near, he spoke to them. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations: Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:18, 19 (GW)
Let’s cut the selfish, convenient Christianity and follow Christ in earnest. Time is running out; do not keep looking for the fulfillment of all the prophecies. God can decide to cause them to come to pass in a moment. He can decide to fulfill prophecies in a moment and end this present world.
Concerning Israel’s salvation God says in Zechariah 3:9…and I will remove the iniquity and guilt of this land in a single day.
Like Jesus whom we profess to be followers of, we must set out and start making disciples now, before it is night when it becomes too late. The same way the Father sent Him, He has sent us. John 20: 21
If He commanded it, then we MUST do it, and now is the time. It does not have to be convenient, it was not convenient for Him to leave all His glory and die the most shameful death to save us from destruction, but He did it anyway. So no matter what, we must make disciples for Him; anyway.
We have been given the Ministry Of Reconciliation. We must tell about God’s love. Lead men to Him and train them till they learn to make disciples as well. It will cause ripple effects. That way, we snatch the souls of men from hell. God wants to save men through you, think of the Woman at the Samarian well and Saul of Tarsus. If God did not need you, He would rapture you once you get saved, so you must make disciples.
Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. John 4: 35
Do not procrastinate, enough of the excuses, pray for lost souls and then speak to as many as you come in contact with. Your bit is to obey and then watch as God uses you. The harvest is ready, plunge in and disappoint the devil. God is a rewarder, He will not use you without blessing you. Your blessing is in fact tied to your obedience. James 1:25
As you allow the love of God compel you to refuse people walk pass you into hell, God will perform His promises concerning you. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you, He is our helper.
Let us go to work now, the night is fast approaching!
Right now, it is a race against time! SELAH!
How well are you racing?
