Let us awake!
17 April 2020
1 Thes 5:6 Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us keep wide awake (alert, watchful, cautious, and on our guard) and let us be sober (calm, collected, and circumspect).
A while ago, the Lord spoke to me and said, "All man-made kingdoms are going to fall". This means that everything that is not built on God, His Word and His Kingdom – is going to collapse. It will simply not be able to remain when all is being shaken. Only that which is founded and built on Christ as the Rock, will remain.
Well my dear friend, NOW is the time.
We have not yet seen the end of everything, more things are sure to come. Most people think that they are going to continue with their lives – going back to the way things were – after the lockdown. No, nothing will ever be the same.
Those who have built on the only true foundation, Jesus Christ, are the only ones who will not bow their knee to the god of this world.
In my eyes, this is a God-given time of grace. He wants us to spend time with Him and to become one with Him. It is a time to remove all masks, in the safety and privacy of our homes. It is a time to search your heart, rethink your belief-systems, to consider the flow of your thoughts and emotions and to become real before God. Just you and Him. He has already prepared the path for you to enter boldly into the Throne Room of Grace.
Heb 4:16 Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need.
This is where God will tell you exactly what He wants from you, what to do and how to prepare your heart. Here, His Holy Spirit guides us into repentance and forgiveness, revealing all that still separates us from Him.
The Word says that in the last days even the elect will be deceived. Make sure you listen to whom God wants you to listen to. I watch and listen to some of the messages circulating and feel so sad that God’s children do not recognize the mixed seed. You can't rebuke the virus – we need to repent!! Get back into God’s Word, His Word never changes!
Prepare the way of the Lord, prepare the way of the Lord...
Prepare the way of the Lord in your heart.
Lay down your life, lay down ‘self’ and prepare the way of the Lord.
At this time your man-made plans, self-sufficiency and ego-state living will not sustain you. These are gates of destruction.
God wants us to become one with Him. He asks of us to close all these doors of ‘self’ and to focus on preparing our hearts. We need to become completely dependent on God alone. We need to remove all crowns of self- reliance and bow before Him in absolute dependence.
Psalm 37:7 Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.
The more ‘real’ we become – removing our masks – the clearer we will see and hear His voice.
Matt 6:31 “So then forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’”
