Holding out the word of life

                            “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to rejoice greatly because I did not run [my race] in vain nor labor without result.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:16‬~ The passage goes…  “Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:14-16‬~ The Message Translation “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life” “holding up the…

How He bridges that gap

“So repent [change your inner self — your old way of thinking, regret past sins]  and return [to God — seek His purpose for your life],  so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];” ‭‭~Acts‬ ‭3:19‬~ So repent… The words of this verse are words of love. What a beautiful and impassioned plea. Is that the way you read it??? If not, perhaps you could read that again and hear the heart of love crying out to you? Repentance is call made by God to us, it is a plea and a directive of love. It is twofold, it involves sorrow AND change. Albert Barnes Commentary says:  1. There are two words in the New Testament translated “repentance,” one of which denotes a…

Sound the alarm….

I woke up the other morning with the words to a very old song going through my head. I wonder how many might know it? It was a church anthem back in those days. I hadn’t thought of this song in 20 years probably but I am sure in one way or another it’s prophetic. “They rush on the city, they run on the wall Great is the army that carries out His word! They rush on the city, they run on the wall Great is the army that carries out His word! The Lord utters His voice before His army… The Lord utters His voice before His army! Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion sound the alarm in My Holy mountain… Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion sound the alarm.” There is no time like the present to carrying out His word. The signs of his coming are all…

The Day….

“Do this, knowing that this is a critical time.  It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency];  for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ].  The night [this present evil age] is almost gone and the day [of Christ’s return] is almost here.  So let us fling away the works of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.” ‭‭~Romans 13:11-12‬~ Wow, it can’t get any clearer than that can it? This verse carries my passionate plea perfectly, to one and all! Hear the cry, heed the call, look into your heart and spirit and awaken from your slumber.  How much more critical can it get before we wake up and realize what day and hour it is?  For many many many years I was asleep. I really had no idea of the significance of…

I want to be in that number!

  Are we on the cusp of His return? I think so, but regardless of what I think the signs of his return are practically fulfilled. No one knows the day nor the hour but we know the signs of His coming. We want to be in the number “when the saints go marching in” 🎶 He will come when that last ‘number’ is in. Will we be ready and waiting? How much do we long for our families and friends to be in that number? It’s time to pray, to turn with full hearts to our God, to submit ourselves to him, to seek him and I pray, be found carrying out his will through his plan for each of our lives. Is Jesus coming back soon? I think so! Maybe yes! maybe no? But we should live with this thought fresh in our minds as if he was.…
