THE BEAST FROM THE SEA
PREPARE TO MEET THE LORD
1. PREPARE TO MEET THE LORD today, as you must one day meet Him, either in this body or in the grave. The Bible says: “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut” Matthew 25:10
2. This parable is a prophetic insight into what happens when Jesus Christ shall appear in clouds of glory to take His Bride home. The Bridegroom is Jesus Christ and we are in the season of His Coming, when He shall come to receive His faithful servants. Alas, not everyone that wears a collar, carries a Bible or attends Church on Sunday shall be translated to glory when the Lord descends with His angels.
3. Virtually everyone has heard of RAPTURE and uncountable multitudes desire to be translated at His appearance. But the parable made it clear that only those that were READY went in. In the parable, there were two classes of people who presented themselves for translation; wise virgins and foolish virgins (Matthew 25:1-10)
4. The word, VIRGIN, infers that both wise and foolish were “clean”, and of the stock now called “Christians”. That is, as far as human eyes could see. But then, wisdom and foolishness are outside the purview of man’s eyes. When it mattered most, God who sees what the Pastor or Bishop cannot see, shut out foolish virgins.
5. Simply put, WISDOM is the application of Divine Truth in the fear of God. Wise virgins are those who receive the gospel of Jesus Christ and message of His Coming in the fear of God and went further to put all distractions aside to make themselves ready, if He comes now. Foolish virgins hear the same message, desire to be “raptured” but allow themselves to be tied up with worries and distractions of this world.
6. Wise virgins had all their preparations done and were at the door, waiting, when the Lord came. Foolish were neither ready nor at the door, but out somewhere to tie up some loose ends. The Lord came, wise virgins went in and the door was shut. Beloved, are you ready and at the door if the Lord comes today?
7. I warn those who will hear; time is far spent. The Lord Jesus Christ shall appear anytime soon and it will all happen so fast, in the twinkling of an eye. I invite you with the gospel of Christ to be translated to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Your readiness is your Boarding Pass. Brethren, renew your Boarding Pass today. I invite you, though you have no Boarding Pass. Receive yours today when you repent of your sins, accept Jesus Christ into your heart and make yourself ready to meet the Lord, amen.
PRESS FORWARD TO THE MARK
I charge you to PRESS FORWARD TO THE MARK that is set in Jesus Christ. The Bible says:
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:14
To PRESS means to run with determination. This world is a beehive of activities and everone rus one way or the other. Some are running on one spot and many more are running in circles. How are you running?
TO PRESS FORWARD is to run in a particular direction. Many people are PRESSING FORWARD in the direction preferred by false religion, society or self; they are running, not knowing what lies ahead or at the end of the race. However, false religion, society and men are prone to shifting the goal posts and direction over time, such that FORWARD today is BACKWARD tomorrow. So, I ask you, what is your MARK?
TO PRESS FORWARD TO THE MARK is to acknowledge that Jesus Christ is ALPHA and OMEGA and in Him is the ETERNAL MARK. The ultimate MARK or prize of the race and battles of this life is EVERLASTING LIFE not fame, power, money, etc. No matter how you run and what you acquire, the only prize that goes beyond the grave is the ‘PRIZE OF THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS”
I challenge you to PRESS FORWARD TOWARDS THE MARK IN JESUS CHRIST. Put away all your fears, step forward in faith to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and run with determination, the race set before you, amen
FAITH IS PILGRIMAGE
FAITH IS PILGRIMAGE of following the STAR, that is, Jesus Christ. In every age, wise men follow the STAR through thick and thin to arrive in the presence of God. The Bible says: “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him” Matthew 2:1-2
The wise men in the story saw the STAR because they “looked ” up” far above their fears, worries and rat race around them. They discerned and accepted the STAR to be more precious than gold, power, fame, etc. They went further and took a step of faith; put everything aside to follow the STAR and they were not ashamed.
I tell you, life is a turbulent odyssey in uncharted stormy seas. Jesus Christ is the STAR that shines through the darkest clouds and leads wise men to glorious shores of eternity. I challenge you to “see” beyond the dark clouds of distress and sorrows; the STAR is waiting for you.
Take a step of faith and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. There shall be challenges on the way but the presence and comfort of the Lord will see you through. Make that move today and join the company of wise men on pilgrimage to everlasting glory, amen
PROPHECY IS FULFILLED
PROPHECY IS FULFILLED
Beloved, everything you see around you; the killings, terror, wars, famine, poverty, etc., is prophecy fulfilled. What you see is the last horseman riding out to do his bit, as foretold:
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth” Revelation 6:8
Death is riding out, followed closely by hell on earth. One is Antichrist, the other is great tribulation. This is no time to be distracted by emotional attachments to fear, tribe, nationality, race or political affiliation.
Do not allow any religious or political leader to lead you in confusion to perdition. I tell you, this world is fast running out of time. There is just a little window of grace left. Repent today and settle with God through Jesus Christ because tomorrow may be too late, amen
SALVATION IS BY REVELATION
SALVATION IS BY REVELATION
Salvation is by revelation of God in Jesus Christ. The Bible says:
“…no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him” Luke 10:22
Jesus Christ revealed God to us, saying:
“I and my Father are one” John 10:30, again He said: “…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father…” John 14:9
Every soul that comes to God in repentance, believing that Christ is God manifest in flesh shall be saved from death to everlasting life.
ETERNAL RELEVANCE is the reward of godliness. The Bible says:
“For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come” 1 Timothy 4:8
All material and physical exertions have no relevance after death. Eternity and ETERNAL RELEVANCE are in Jesus Christ. Accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Saviour and profit from the “life that now is, and of that which is to come”, amen
DEATH IS DEFEATED
DEATH IS DEFEATED
DEATH IS DEFEATED by the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Bible says:
“And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many” Matthew 27:52-53
Jesus went down to the grave, defeated death and released those who trusted in Him to everlasting life. Beloved, death is defeated; accept Jesus Christ today and collect your boarding pass to everlasting glory.
FAITH IS UNLIMITED
FAITH IS UNLIMITED and your title deed to God’s UNLIMITED resources and power. Jesus Christ said:
“… If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” Matthew 17:20
Faith is activated by hearing and receiving the gospel of Jesus Christ. Activate your faith today by receiving Christ into your life, amen

HOUSE OF GODS
House of gods are shameful spots in the fold, they are clouds without water; “…carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots” [Jude 1:12]
