There is a seriousness of the hour. Many feel it. It is unlike anytime period in history, and we are part of that hour. People coming into the realization of exactly what the LORD is saying.
Some of us are identifying with the path of the LORD and to the new people we have met, and those we have not met yet.
New things are coming, beloved, new methods and godly adventures in His presence for those who set their desire on him; such desire not known to many. It isn’t the time to play Church but be The Church.
There are many changes, beloved. It is time to prepare for the harvest and discipleship.
Having grieved over the revelation of friends who are now unwilling to go; sorrows filled our heart for those who were really not with us.
I saw with such clarity and felt what it must feel like when Jesus marveled with those of unbelief and those who rejected him.
You would think there would be absolute trust as when Jesus and his disciples spent three years together. Isn’t it fair to say that being with Jesus should or would bring absolute assurance, trust and closure in our confidence of the faith?
These are the things that we hold so dear with our experiences. Would we die for our faith?
The confidence of the disciples dwindled down when all at once, Jesus was taken from them destined for the passion.
Surely we would have undeniable faith in the LORD, being solid in our walk and to feel deep inside the betrayal of His own; for He also carried that with Him?
He was crucified and He felt the hopelessness and betrayal of Judas and of those who falsely charged Him as a criminal.
Jesus knew of Peter’s denial, and how a close follower can scatter away. As Jesus was on His way to pay the ultimate price, His followers dispersed off the path of the number dwindling back.
Anyone who truly is sent, hasn’t very many who are close to them. Although a hub, you find that your circle of whom you will really work with and trust, keeps getting smaller!
We must know those who labor among us.
Once we know God’s will and placement, do not deviate. If there is a problem, we must work things out quickly. For our time is coming to an end soon and we must work while it is day and help as many as the LORD sends.
If you are not sure where you belong, Jesus is giving every opportunity for people to say ‘no,’ and walk away, as He doesn’t want those to stay for people. You stay for the opposite; to only stay if you choose to stay for Him.
I sense this strongly, that some of us have entered a point of no return.
This is no play. I don’t know how to be more serious. We each need to know it for ourselves.
Seek God for yourselves and get planted. Let nothing uproot you ever again.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
