Luke 13:3; I tell you, Nay: but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
The Lord has placed upon my heart a message that calls all of us who name the name of Jesus to repent of our sin and compromise with the world. The Lord Jesus spoke to the Laodicean church in the book of Revelation, telling them to repent of their lukewarmness, and compromise. If they did not repent, they would be vomited out of His mouth. Revelation 3:14-19 states; And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou are neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent.
The Lord Jesus is commanding those of us who are His followers to repent of our lukewarmness and compromise with sin. It is time for those of us who are of the household of faith to know and understand, that the Lord Jesus Christ is returning for those of us who have bought gold tried in the fire. He is coming for those of us who have on white raiment. We must anoint our eyes with eyesalve that we may see, and again repent of sin and compromise. The Lord is returning for those of us who are filled to overflowing with His Holy Spirit, and for those of us who are washed in the blood of the Lamb. The lukewarm church here in America is preaching a gospel of carnality and convenience that tickles the itching ears of those who will listen. Many, so called christians today have forsaken the one true gospel of Jesus for a watered down false gospel that again tickles their itching ears. It is time for the church to wake up to the fact that strong delusion from the Lord is upon this world, and the day of the Lord is at hand. There is no time to play church, and compromise with sin. It is time to repent and seek the face of the Lord and ask Him for forgiveness of our sin and compromise before it is too late, for the day of the Lord is at hand. Our lamps must be full, and we must be watching and waiting for the Lord with our whole hearts, minds, and souls. It is time that we surrender to the Lord Jesus, and walk in obedience to Him with a humble and contrite heart. If we do not do this, He will spue us out of His mouth, and we will be counted as goats and not sheep. The Lord Jesus said that many are called but few are chosen. Those that are chosen must prepare their hearts now, for we are indeed living in the last days, and our redemption draws near.
My brethren, it is time that we seek the face of the Lord with every fiber of our being. We must do this in spirit and in truth. We must accept the Lord’s chastening, and His rebuke, and not resist Him. Many are seeking false teachers that will tell them what they want to hear. They do not have a heart to listen and hear the truth, so they are led astray by the teachings of men, and the doctrines of devils. We must not resist the truth and become offended when we hear the truth. We should welcome both the truth and the chastening of the Lord. For Jesus tells us that, for those He loves, He rebukes and chastens. It is time that we seek and welcome the one true gospel of our most holy Lord Jesus, and not kick against the pricks when we are convicted by the Holy Ghost of our sins against God. We must repent of our sins, and turn from them. It is time brethren, that we accept that the one true gospel of Jesus is not only a gospel of love and salvation, but one of true, heart felt repentance. Repentance means that we must turn from our sins and sin no more. We must make a 180 degree turn from our sin and rebellion against the Lord, and ask forgiveness with a humble and contrite heart. If we will do this, the Lord will renew and restore us, and give us newness of life. Brethren I beseech you to pray fervently to the Lord. Do not continue on in your compromise and sin, and expect to make heaven your home. For the Lord will not be mocked, nor will He strive with man. Being a good person is not enough to make us right with God. We must accept the fact that we are sinners saved by grace through faith, and that we need our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The false gospel that is being preached today is one that states that all paths lead to salvation. This false gospel also teaches that the grace of God is a license to sin, and that sin is just a normal part of being human. This teaching also espouses the idea that we can sin and God will understand, and overlook our transgressions. None of this is true, and if you are following these false teachings you are in error, and are treading on dangerous ground. For again, the Lord will not strive with man, nor will He be mocked. This false gospel is heretical, and of the devil. The Lord Jesus commands us to be holy as He is holy. We are called to be salt and light in a lost and dying world. We are also called to reprove the darkness and live lives worthy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Are you living a life that is holy and worthy before the Lamb of God, our most holy Savior Jesus Christ? My brethren, do not listen to the lies of the enemy which are spoken by these wolves in sheep’s clothing, these so called preachers of this false gospel of carnality and convenience. Rather reprove them. Expose them for the liars that they are. Read and study God’s holy word. Pray and seek the face of the Lord will all fervency of heart, mind, and soul. If you will do this, you will begin to experience peace and joy unspeakable and full of glory. Put on the whole armor of God, and fight the good fight of faith. The Spirit of the Lord is saying to the church at this time, that we are to repent of our lukewarmness and compromise. We must all heed this message , and repent in sackcloth and ashes before the Lord. For the day is coming when our space of time to repent will be no longer. We must humble ourselves before the Lord, and come to Him in repentance now. We must turn from our sin now, and fall into the loving and forgiving arms of our Lord Jesus.
In closing, I want you to know that the Lord Jesus loves you with an everlasting love. He is waiting for you to completely and totally surrender to Him and His will for your lives. He is calling all of us who are of the household of faith to turn from our sin now and put our trust in Him. The time has come that we must allow the Holy Ghost to use us for this lost and dying world, and win the lost to Jesus and His kingdom at all cost. Will you surrender to the Lord now? Will you repent of your sin and compromise with the world? Will you allow the Lord to make you salt and light once again? The Lord Jesus Christ is calling you to make a decision for Him in this hour. What will your decision be? Amen.
