A thought to ponder
In 2018 the chasm between the Kingdom of LIGHT – God’s Realm
And the Kingdom of Darkness seems to be becoming ever wider. If you compare the ABSOLUTE HOLINESS of God with the secular, ever rising carnality of this world the chasm seems un-crossable. Once the Church stood as a gleaming, golden hope filled beacon to draw the secular into the Holy. This is why I believe there is such a ‘shakeup’ so that only holiness must be seen in the lives of all who would Shepherd God’s People and point them to ‘eternity’. Thank God that the Way is still clear…….it is now becoming more defined. Jesus Christ came and died so that His sacrificial death (like a bridge between one Kingdom and another) is the sure pathway to Home. Now, the TRUTH becomes clearer.. Only those who are ‘born-again’ can enter the Kingdom of Heaven (Jesus’s Words to Nicodemus)”Unless a man is born-again he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.’
Only the ones who come to the Cross in repentance and utter commitment…… loving the Lord with their whole heart, mind and body. Those who are, ‘covered by the blood of the Covenantal Sacrificial Lamb at Calvary’. No jumping over with time consuming programs and how to handbooks. These are often helpful but lead not where really. It seems that we must choose to walk over via the Cross. Jesus said. “I am the Way’. (It explains to me why scriptural references…. Luke 18:8 Jesus said ‘When I return will I find much faith upon the Earth?’ suddenly ring true. The Bride to meet the Bridegroom must be……….ABSOLUTELY HOLY WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE………..
I don’t know about you but I would never make it. That’s why Only the Cross and His Sacrifice can make the transition possible.
Utter surrender to Him and His finished Work at the Cross and ongoing repentance and close communication. Our God is a RELATIONAL GOD.
All other endeavours will be of no benefit. It’s not by our ‘works’ though we will do these out of love but only by our FAITH and what Christ has done for us.
What think you?
For this coming week be the Blazing LIGHT…not just a glimmer.
Blessings to each one.
