Our first parents, Adam and Eve, committed "high treason" when they forfeited an intimate walk with God for a substandard, futile and drab existence. Someone said, "You never see how far man fell until he starts the climb back." God said He would do a quick work at the end of the age. He saves the best 'till last! Jesus tied a noose around the devil's neck and gifted His Church to prevail. Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men." (Ephesians 4:8)
Our journey is all about embracing what God is currently into, "signs and wonders" manifesting (Mark 16:17). This bankrupt world, unraveling at the seams, deserves much more than what's been available, as a general rule, in the church world at large. I have no desire to be judgemental, arrogant or unkind. I just want to help all of us respond to the "wake up call" and let people in on the action. The Bible says, "Be doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving our own selves." (James 1:22) The Christian Walk is not about "dead religion" but all about doing!
The Father of our faith, Abraham, gave the indication that he would have liked to live in our time. If that were so I would deem him a "mental case," due to what's transpiring in our world. But on second thought, I believe he was seeing outside of the taste, touch, see, hear or feel realm. I believe he was witnessing all of Heaven being astir, at the preparations being made for Christ to triumph, by dealing a death blow to Satan, and then appear and snatch His Beloved Bride away.
God has instructed me to "Never preach anything that I'm unwilling to back up with action." So, look out devil, here we come!
If we go God's way, He will go our way! So let's wake up Church and "Get ready to rumble!"
Our best days are ahead.
