1. The numbering of
DAYS in months and years demonstrate certainty of our MORTALITY, but God is IMMORTAL, “But beloved, be not IGNORANT of this one thing, that ONE DAY is with the Lord as a thousand years, and A THOUSAND YEARS AS ONE DAY” (2 Peter 3:8] According to Bible records, no man exceeded the limit of “ONE DAY”; the oldest man was Methuselah, “And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died” [Genesis 5:27] Each man has ONE DAY, reckoned by God as “EVENING” and “MORNING”, “And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the EVENING and MORNING were the FIRST DAY” [Genesis 1:5] The “EVENING” is ruled by DARKNESS, the season of IGNORANCE and alienation from God, “And the times of this IGNORANCE God WINKED at; but now commandeth all men every where to REPENT: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” [Acts 17:30-31] The Psalmist, determined not to PERISH in IGNORANCE, cried to God: “SO TEACH US TO NUMBER OUR DAYS, THAT WE MAY APPLY OUR HEARTS TO WISDOM” (Psalms 90:12)
2. The DAY allotted to man is synonymous with LIFE, not TIME; TIME has an END, as the SEVENTH ANGEL swore, “… there should be TIME NO LONGER: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the MYSTERY OF GOD should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets” [Revelation 10:6-7] When God “BREATHED” into man in Genesis 2:7, He gave us the capacity for ENDLESS LIFE; it was lost in Eden through SIN, but restored in Jesus Christ “For the WAGES of SIN is DEATH; but the GIFT of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord” [Romans 6:23] As long as we were entangled in SIN, our DAYS were ruled by DARKNESS and we were slaves to the one who wielded the POWER of DEATH, “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also HIMSELF likewise took part of the same; that THROUGH DEATH HE MIGHT DESTROY HIM that has the POWER OF DEATH, that is, the DEVIL; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” [Hebrews 2:14-15] It is a MYSTERY; how HIMSELF, that is, God became like us to TEACH us to NUMBER OUR DAYS, “To wit, that GOD WAS IN CHRIST, RECONCILING the WORLD unto HIMSELF, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the WORD OF RECONCILIATION” [2 Corinthians 5:19]
3. Listen to WISDOM, “… a MAN’S LIFE CONSISTETH NOT IN THE ABUNDANCE of the things which he POSSESSETH” [Luke 12:15] The true “NUMBERS” of a man’s LIFE is ETERNAL RELEVANCE, not wealth, age, fame, power, title, etc. WISDOM reveals the limitation of our earthly sojourn, for “… it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” [Hebrews 9:27] Seek WISDOM with all your heart and you will find Him, and “.. unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, CHRIST the POWER of God, and the WISDOM of God” [1 Corinthians 1:24] Jesus Christ is the WISDOM of God; I invite you to have a taste of the knowledge of TRUTH, “So shall the knowledge of WISDOM be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a REWARD, and thy EXPECTATIONS SHALL NOT BE CUT OFF” [Proverbs 24:14] In His NAME is POWER of God to translate the worst offender, trapped in the darkest parts of the NIGHT, to the LIBERTY of glorious MORNING. All He requires of you is genuine REPENTANCE, “REPENT ye therefore, and be CONVERTED, that your SINS BE BLOTTED OUT, when the TIMES OF REFRESHING shall come from the presence of the Lord” [Acts 3:19] Brethren, the time of REFRESHING is so close when MORTALITY shall take on IMMORTALITY; let us, therefore, hold on tight to WISDOM, “Beloved, now are we the SONS OF GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we shall see him as he is” [1 John 3:2]
Paul wrote Epistle to Galatians to a BACKSLIDDEN CHURCH, such as this generation. The Bible is PRESENT TRUTH and the SPIRIT of the Lord addresses the LETTER to the present Church, with a note, "And what I say unto you I say unto all, WATCH" (Mark 13:37)
1. Beloved, you and I are by no means more righteous than some who perished in 2021, “Or those eighteen, upon whom the TOWER in SILOAM FELL, and SLEW them, think ye that they were SINNERS above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, EXCEPT YE REPENT, ye shall all LIKEWISE PERISH” [Luke 13:4-5] I speak to those looking forward to the appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ, STAND FAST IN THE LORD; I see “MEN’S HEARTS FAILING them for FEAR, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the POWERS of HEAVEN shall be SHAKEN” [Luke 21:26] POWERS of heaven are “SHAKEN” to prepare the way of the MAN OF SIN, “… whose coming is after the WORKING of SATAN with all POWER and SIGNS and LYING WONDERS, And with all DECEIVABLENESS of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS in them that PERISH; because they received not the love of the TRUTH, that they might be SAVED” [2 Thessalonians 2:9-10] Governments and all paraphernalia of CONTROL shall be mired in confusion as the world settles into a “NEW NORMAL”, fueled by “DECEIVABLENESS of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS” “Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so STAND FAST IN THE LORD, my dearly beloved” [Philippians 4:1]
2. This year, like any other, cars will be bought, houses built and daughters given in marriage; the Sun will appear in the east and set in the west. If you will STAND FAST IN THE LORD, you will SEE beyond the façade of normalcy; a growing campaign of DECEIT, “after the WORKING of Satan”. As the days go by, foundations of human wisdom shall be sore tested and citadels of strength demystified as uncertainties morph into frustration. The FAITH of many shall be “SHAKEN”, and WHEAT separated from CHAFF but “They that TRUST IN THE LORD shall be as mount Zion, which CANNOT BE REMOVED, but ABIDETH FOR EVER” [Psalms 125:1] Take note, CHAFF was WHEAT, until it lost “MOISTURE”, dried up and blown away. As we journey into the new year, let every man examine his root, whether it is in “MOISTURE” or exposed to the “WIND”. This year, “WINDS” of heaven shall blow hard and hot, and some who were once “FRESH” shall WITHER, as it is written: “IF A MAN ABIDETH NOT IN ME, he is cast forth as a branch, and is WITHERED; and men gather them, and CAST INTO THE FIRE, and they are burned” [John 15:6] In the “SHAKING”, every foundation shall be tried whether it is on the ROCK or “SINKING SAND”. The ROCK is God manifest in Jesus Christ to SAVE us from this evil world, “… a TRIED STONE, a precious CORNER STONE, a SURE FOUNDATION: he that BELIEVETH shall not make haste” [Isaiah 28:16]
3. You have not gone this way before, STAND FAST IN THE LORD, who declares “… the END from the BEGINNING, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND, and I will do all my pleasure” [Isaiah 46:10] This year, make up your mind to STAND in the Lord and you will not be entangled in the yoke of BONDAGE, “STAND FAST therefore in the LIBERTY wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be NOT ENTANGLED again with the yoke of BONDAGE” [Galatians 5:1] Determine to do away with those things, which though “LAWFUL”, DISTRACT to bring you into BONDAGE, for “All things are LAWFUL unto me, but ALL THINGS ARE NOT EXPEDIENT: all things are lawful for me, but I will NOT be BROUGHT UNDER the POWER of ANY” [1 Corinthians 6:12] Sometimes our PAST, pleasant or otherwise, DISTRACT us with FEAR or COMPLACENCY; this year, move on, “… FORGETTING THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE BEHIND, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I PRESS FORWARD the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” [Philippians 3:13-14] Present climate of instability and uncertainties are SNARES in the journey of FAITH; STAND FAST IN THE LORD, make Him your priority as it is written: “I have SET THE LORD always BEFORE ME: because he is at my right hand, I SHALL NOT BE MOVED. Therefore MY HEART IS GLAD, and my GLORY REJOICETH: my flesh also shall REST IN HOPE” [Psalms 16:8-9]
4. There are many unknowns in the year and the strength of many shall fail “But they that WAIT UPON THE LORD shall RENEW their STRENGTH; they shall MOUNT UP with wings as eagles; they shall RUN, and not be weary; and they shall WALK, and not faint” [Isaiah 40:31] STAND FAST IN THE LORD; He has cut a PATH for you to WALK, a race to RUN and obtain the crown of glory, and WINGS to soar over HIGH PLACES of the earth, as it is written: “He made him RIDE on the HIGH PLACES of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to SUCK HONEY out of the rock, and OIL out of the flinty rock” [Deuteronomy 32:13] If you will RIDE on HIGH PLACES and suck HONEY out of the rock, determine to WAIT on the Lord, like a good STEWARD to his King. WAIT on Him in PRAISE and WORSHIP, “BE CAREFUL FOR NOTHING; but in every thing by PRAYER and SUPPLICATION with THANKSGIVING let your requests be made known unto God” [Philippians 4:6] Storms will surely come; STAND FAST in due diligence, both to STUDY and DO the WORD of God and you will not be overthrown [Matthew 7:24-25] Anchor your FAITH on the sure PROMISE of His appearance, when we shall receive the REWARD of FAITH, “… and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we shall see him as he is” [1 John 3:2]
5. If you have not done so, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, amen
It is the nature of REWARD to come after WORK is accomplished, even so did Jesus say to all, "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be" ( Revelation 22:12) ...
1. WOMAN is God’s “SECRET WEAPON”, for there is no representation of WOMANKIND in heaven, “For when they shall rise from the dead, they NEITHER MARRY, NOR ARE GIVEN IN MARRIAGE; but are AS THE ANGELS which are in heaven” [Mark 12:25] God foreknew the agenda of Satan, in His WISDOM formed WOMAN and hid her in the MAN until time appointed. It is no surprise SIN came through the Eve, for through the WOMAN, God ordained victory over the adversary, as it is written: “And I will put ENMITY BETWEEN THEE and the WOMAN, and between thy seed and HER SEED; it shall BRUISE THY HEAD, and thou shalt bruise his heel” [Genesis 3:15] God prescribed MARRIAGE, joining of MAN to his WOMAN in ONE FLESH, as SIGN of the PROMISE of SALVATION through Jesus Christ. God came to us in Jesus Christ through the WOMAN, and is the SAVIOUR of those who receive Him as the REDEEMER. We are JOINED to Christ, as a MAN is JOINED to his WIFE; it is a MYSTERY, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they TWO shall be ONE FLESH. This is a GREAT MYSTERY: but I speak concerning CHRIST and the CHURCH” [Ephesians 5:31-32]
2. As the WOMAN was hid in Adam, so were we in God before the foundation of the world “According as he hath CHOSEN US IN HIM BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love” [Ephesians 1:4] Listen well, God put Adam to SLEEP before He pulled the woman out, but not Satan. No matter how well you think you know your WOMAN, Satan knows her better, “And the LORD God caused a DEEP SLEEP to fall upon Adam, and HE SLEPT: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof” [Genesis 2:21] No wonder, Satan went after the WOMAN in Eden and through her, SIN and DEATH came into the world, as it is written: “And Adam was not deceived, but the WOMAN BEING DECEIVED was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be SAVED in CHILDBEARING, if they CONTINUE in FAITH and CHARITY and HOLINESS with SOBRIETY” [1 Timothy 2:14-15] Through “CHILDBEARING”, SALVATION came into the world; Mary conceived of the Holy Ghost and brought forth Jesus Christ [Luke 1:35] As pertain to “CHILDBEARING”, the WOMAN symbolize the CHURCH; first, as channel through which Christ came and second, as congregation of SOULS in who the Holy Ghost dwells until we are “CONFORMED” to the image of the SON “For whom he did FOREKNOW, he also did predestinate to be CONFORMED to the IMAGE of HIS SON, that he might be the FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN” [Romans 8:29]
3. MARRIAGE between MAN and WOMAN, illustrate the relationship between Christ and His Church, “For the HUSBAND is the HEAD OF THE WIFE, even as CHRIST is the HEAD OF THE CHURCH: and he is the saviour of the body” [Ephesians 5:23-24] As the rest of the body supports the HEAD, so was the WOMAN made as “HELP MEET” and more so the Church, to RECONCILE us with God through Jesus Christ [Genesis 2:18] WOMAN was made SUBJECT to her HUSBAND, as it is required of the Church to SUBMIT to Christ as BRIDE to her BRIDEGROOM, “Therefore as the CHURCH IS SUBJECT UNTO CHRIST, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing” [ Ephesians 5: 24] The BRIDE is to Christ, not by force but by the working of LOVE, as Christ LOVED us and gave His LIFE for us, therefore, “Husbands, LOVE YOUR WIVES, even as CHRIST also LOVED the CHURCH” [Ephesians 5:25] We are the BRIDE of Christ, because He first LOVED us; the Church of the LIVING GOD, not by affiliation to any denomination, but by OBEDIENCE to His COMMANDMENTS, the “… CHURCH of the FIRSTBORN, which are WRITTEN IN HEAVEN, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect” [Hebrews 12:23] We are the BRIDE of the Lord, whose names are written in heaven, the Church of the FIRSTBORN. Alas, there is another WOMAN; a MASQUERADE and IMPOSTOR, as it is written: “… I saw a WOMAN sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of NAMES OF BLASPHEMY, having seven heads and ten horns” [Revelation 17:3]
4. We are the BRIDE of Christ, His Church on earth, not built of men with bricks and glass but of the Lord who called us by name and “… as LIVELY STONES, are built up a SPIRITUAL HOUSE, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, ACCEPTABLE to God by Jesus Christ” [1 Peter 2:5] Let us at all times be mindful of the other WOMAN, the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” and her “ABOMINATIONS”, “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” [Revelation 17:5] As we came out of Christ, so is she fashioned after the likeness of Satan and POLLUTES the world with FALSE RELIGION. She has on her head, “NAMES OF BLASPHEMY by which multitudes are lured to perdition, thinking they are serving God [John 16:2] Beloved, be ye therefore, WISE; the BRIDE is ONE BODY not many, united by FAITH in the REVELATION of God manifest in Jesus Christ, “For by one Spirit are we all BAPTIZED INTO ONE BODY, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit” [1 Corinthians 12:13] As ONE BODY, we shall be TRANSLATED at the appearance of Jesus Christ, therefore, examine yourself whether ye be in the CHURCH or BABYLON, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” [Revelation 18:4]
5. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior amen
The present world is a raging sea of temptations; while we wait for the REWARD of FAITH, we cannot afford to be blown out of course. FAITH is our sure ANCHOR to ETERNAL RELEVANCE. ...
1. When God revealed Himself to angels, He did so in the manner of angels, “And again, when he BRINGETH in the FIRSTBEGOTTEN into the world, he saith, And let all the ANGELS of God WORSHIP HIM” [Hebrews 1:6] Angels who BELIEVED and WORSHIPPED Him were accepted of Him, the rest fell into CONTROVERSY OF LIES; some said He looks like us, how could He be God? If He is the FIRSTBEGOTTEN, there must be others, why WORSHIP Him? If He is “BEGOTTEN”, He cannot be God, etc. The Serpent promised Eve liberty, she fell for it and man was overcome by the LIE, as it is written: “While they PROMISE them LIBERTY, they themselves are the SERVANTS of CORRUPTION: for of whom a man is OVERCOME, of the same is he BROUGHT in BONDAGE” [2 Peter 2:19] In due season, God made Himself known to man in Jesus Christ “For in him dwelleth all the FULNESS of the GODHEAD bodily” [Colossians 2:9] Though the TRUTH came to us, it is sad to see CONTROVERSY persist in disputes about the BIRTH of Jesus Christ, His DEATH, RESURRECTION and COMING in those who, “… the god of this world hath BLINDED the MINDS of them which believe not, lest the LIGHT of the glorious GOSPEL of Christ, who is the IMAGE OF GOD, should shine unto them” [2 Corinthians 4:4]
2. God foreknew SIN would come and made a WAY of escape through FAITH, “In HOPE of ETERNAL LIFE, which God, that cannot lie, PROMISED BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN” [Titus 1:2] Angels that fell had no room for REPENTANCE; they SAW and DENIED the only ONE who could save them. By the same token, God presented Himself to us in Jesus Christ, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whosoever BELIEVETH in him should not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE” [John 3:16] By FAITH we BELIEVE God was manifest in the “ONLY BEGOTTEN SON”, in HOPE of ETERNAL LIFE. We have no business in puerile disputes about genealogies and dates of His BIRTH, as it is written: “Neither give heed to FABLES and ENDLESS GENEALOGIES, which minister QUESTIONS, rather than godly EDIFYING WHICH IS IN FAITH: so do” [1 Timothy 1:4] Those who dwell on dates and etymology of Christmas entangle themselves in “FOOLISH QUESTIONS” [Titus 3:9] Brethren, let us be careful not to slide away from FAITH to needless CONTROVERSY OF LIES. We were not saved because we knew the hour of Christ’s BIRTH or the history of Christmas? We were SAVED from SIN and DEATH to EVERLASTING LIFE because God showed up for us in Jesus Christ, “And without CONTROVERSY great is the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, … ” [1 Timothy 3:16] Beloved, this is the TRUTH, rest your FAITH on it.
3. DEATH and RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ are no doubt MYSTERIES, “Which none of the princes of this world knew: for HAD THEY KNOWN IT, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE CRUCIFIED the Lord of glory” [1 Corinthians 2:8] It is a MYSTERY because they did not know why He had to DIE, “Whom God hath set forth to be a PROPITIATION through FAITH in his BLOOD, to declare his righteousness for the REMISSION OF SINS that are past, through the forbearance of God” [Romans 3:25] Every RELIGION has an explanation for the MYSTERY; some claim He DIED to SAVE Jews only, but He Himself said, “And OTHER SHEEP I HAVE, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be OBE FOLD, and ONE SHEPHERD” [John 10:16] Jews, on their part, acknowledge His DEATH, but DENY His RESURRECTION; the LIE is retold in every generation, “Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and STOLE HIM away while we slept” [Matthew 28:15] There are those who argue, He did not really DIE but was in coma for a while and awoke much later. Friend, He indeed DIED without which no man could be RECONCILED to God. His BLOOD is the only antidote to SIN, the BLOOD of ONE who lived in the midst of SIN but had no SIN, “To wit, that GOD WAS IN CHRIST, RECONCILING the WORLD UNTO HIMSELF, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation” [2 Corinthians 5:19]
4. The end of “LYING CONTROVERSIES” is the unbridled assault hell against imminent of the Lord Jesus Christ to RECEIVE His BRIDE. The airwaves are crammed with some who TEACH and LIVE as if the RESURRECTION of SAINTS is over, “Who concerning the TRUTH have erred, saying that the RESURRECTION is past already; and OVERTHROW THE FAITH OF SOME” [2 Timothy 2:18] SCOFFERS also abound and the FAITH of many are weakened by their LIES, saying: “… Where is the PROMISE of HIS COMING? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” [2 Peter 3:3-4] The internet is inundated with FALSE REPORTS touted as proof of His Coming, many are daily led astray and their FAITH gravely injured with man-made calendar of prophetic dateline of events, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a FALLING AWAY first, and that MAN OF SIN be revealed, the son of perdition” [2 Thessalonians 2:3] The foregoing Scripture speak of Christians, who shall be distracted and “FALL AWAY” from the FAITH through CONTROVERSY OF LIES. Beloved, be not distracted; lay aside the burden of “CONTROVERSY, “Looking for that blessed HOPE, and the glorious APPEARING of the great God and our SAVIOUR Jesus Christ” [Titus 2:13] He is Coming, nothing is going to stop Him; if you have not done so, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and be prepared to receive Him, amen

1. SPIRIT OF ELIJAH is the ministry of angels standing in God’s presence to prepare His WAY. When Elijah said, “… As the LORD God of Israel liveth, BEFORE WHOM I STAND, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word”, he spoke with authority of holy angels to precipitate a REVIVAL in Israel [1 Kings 17:1] For him, the SPIRIT was willing, but the FLESH was weak, “… and HE REQUESTED for himself that HE MIGHT DIE; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers” [1 Kings 19:4] John came in the SPIRIT and POWER of Elijah, kindled a REVIVAL, set Israel on the path of REFORMATION and turned “… the HEARTS of the FATHERS to the CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to MAKE READY A PEOPLE PREPARED for the Lord” [Luke 1:17] John turned the HEARTS of the “FATHERS” to the SON, but it was not for him to RESTORE. We are the generation to be RESTORED by the SPIRIT OF ELIJAH, the HEARTS of the CHILDREN shall be RESTORED to their Apostolic FATHERS, as foretold “Behold, I WILL SEND YOU ELIJAH the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the HEART of the FATHERS to the CHILDREN, and the HEART of the CHILDREN to their FATHERS, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse” [Malachi 4:5-6]
2. There is no doubt the Church increased in numbers over the years, but fell asleep in the SPIRIT, as it is written: “While the bridegroom tarried, they ALL SLUMBERED and SLEPT” [Matthew 25:5] We are the SLUMBERING generation whose HEARTS must be REVIVED by the SPIRIT and POWER of ELIJAH “Wherefore he saith, AWAKE thou that SLEEPEST, and ARISE from the DEAD, and CHRIST SHALL GIVE THEE LIGHT” [Ephesians 5:14] Those who heard the VOICE of John came to the WILDERNESS with one thing in mind, REPENTANCE, “Then WENT OUT TO HIM JERUSALEM, and all JUDAEA, and all the region round about JORDAN, And were baptized of him in Jordan, CONFESSING THEIR SINS” [Matthew 3:5-6] The same SPIRIT, like a mighty rushing wind is blowing the Church and “HEDGES” for the REVIVAL that ushers appearance of the Lord. It is the same SPIRIT but many VOICES, CRYING in the WILDERNESS, “REPENT ye therefore, and be converted, that your SINS may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;” [Acts 3:19] The VOICES are in diverse languages, the MESSAGE is the same; the PROMISE of His Coming, “… I WILL COME again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” [John 14:1-3] Beloved, it is MIDNIGHT HOUR, “GO YE OUT” with REPENTANCE to meet the Lord in the WILDERNESS, And at MIDNIGHT there was a CRY made, Behold, the BRIDEBROOM COMETH; GO YE OUT TO MEET HIM” [Matthew 25:5-6]
3. Those who came to John in the WILDERNESS saw neither ALTAR nor TABLES to receive offerings, but a PROPHET armed with sharp knife of the WORD to circumcise their HEARTS, “… with the CIRCUMCISION MADE WITHOUT HANDS, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ“ [Colossians 2:11] They came from among Pharisees, Sadducees and Herodians, so are we; Baptists, Pentecostals, Catholics, Anglicans, etc., drawn by the SPIRIT OF ELIJAH to be “BROKEN”, CONVERTED and REFORMED in readiness for the appearance of Christ, “That he might present it to himself a glorious CHURCH, not having SPOT, or WRINKLE, or any such thing; but that it should be HOLY and without BLEMISH” [Ephesians 5:27] We are all BRETHREN in the WILDERNESS, there are no overbearing MASTERS; the WORD is Lord over all, burning and breaking down walls of sectarian DOCTRINES, as it is written: “Is not my word like as a FIRE? saith the LORD; and like a HAMMER that BREAKETH the ROCK in pieces?” [Jeremiah 23:29] When we submit to the WORD of TRUTH, we are BROKEN, our parochial prejudices are purged and we are CONVERTED into one BODY, “For we being MANY ARE ONE BREAD, and ONE BREAD: for we are all partakers of that ONE BREAD” [1 Corinthians 10:17] We, who were once marred by DECEIT and HYPOCRISIES of man-made doctrines are REFORMED by the POTTER who formed us for His own purpose, “And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the POTTER:. so HE MADE IT AGAIN ANOTHER VESSEL, AS IT SEEMED GOOD to the potter to make it” [Jeremiah 18:4]
4. The end of our SALVATION is RESTORATION in the likeness of Jesus Christ. First, we are REVIVED and GATHERED by the SPIRIT OF ELIJAH, then BROKEN and REFORMED into the true BODY of Christ, “And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the BODY is, thither will the EAGLES be gathered together” [ Luke 17:37] We are as Israel in the WILDERNESS, EAGLES that should be raised in the likeness of the GREAT EAGLE, “Till we all come in the unity of the FAITH, and of the KNOWLEDGE of the Son of God, unto a PERFECT MAN, unto the measure of the stature of the FULNES of Christ” [Ephesians 4:13] When we come of age in FAITH and KNOWLEDGE of Him, the Lord shall pour His SPIRIT on us; the CHILDREN shall be RESTORED to the mandate of their Apostolic FATHERS, “Until the SPIRIT POURED UPON US from on high, and the WILDERNESS be a FRUITFUL FIELD, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest” [Isaiah 32:15] We are the FRUITFUL FIELD, the HARVEST of EAGLES that shall be TRANSLATED at the appearance of Jesus Christ. HEAR His VOICE today, and “… COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” [Revelation 18:4]
