There is an urgent call to WAKE UP! WAKE UP to the things of God. WAKE UP, because Jesus is coming soon, and He is making His bride ready. Jesus is calling His body, (the body of Christ) to separate themselves from the world. He wants us to separate ourselves from darkness. Anything that separates us from the Peace of God, and the anointing of God, we need to get it out of our lives. This is a time when staying away from stressful thoughts is most important. If our thoughts aren't bringing us peace, but instead are stressing our heart and bodies out, then we need to drop them, and stop thinking about them. We need to put our minds and keep them set on the Word of God. This is a time of immersion in the things of God, in the Word of God. Spending five minutes in devotion a day, and going to church on Sunday morning, and then forgetting about God the rest of the time isn't going to protect us in the time that we live in.
The Judgment of God is coming in 2005. I have been hearing preachers like Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Copeland, Billye Brim, and Terri Pearsons talk about the Judgment of God is coming into the world. I couldn't possibly start preaching it myself, until I myself had received confirmation on this coming Judgment directly from God. It came in the form of a prayer for the body of Christ and the unbelieving world. The Word of God rose up in me in prophesy and I began to pray forth what God wanted.
I prayed and agreed for the Judgment of God to come. I prayed the body of Christ (His anointed ones) that we would judge ourselves so that when the Judgment comes, the Judgment won't be able to touch us. I prayed those of us who are disobedient that we would repent and change our ways to God's ways, so the coming Judgment can't touch us. The Judgment can't hurt the obedient ones. It will just pass over us. Only the disobedient will be affected by the Judgment. Judgment always comes first to the house of God. That's the body of the Anointed One. Then, the Judgment will pass to the world, calling forth the heathen to repent of their ways and come under the obedience of Jesus and His Word.
God is calling His separated, consecrated preachers to preach this Judgment before it comes, for the purpose of saving disobedient Christians from the Judgment, and saving the unsaved from the Judgment. If we repent and become His obedient ones, then the Judgment can't touch us. The Judgment won't be bad for the obedient one's. Daily, the Body of Christ needs to examine ourselves, and ask God if there is any wicked thing in us. If He points something out that doesn't please Him, then we need to get it out. If we can't get it out, then we need to ask Him to help us clean out all darkness and the sin, which so easily tricks us. Get out the sin. Get out the hate, and offense, and bad feelings for others. Get out the criticizing of those who are over us. We should never put our mouth against God's anointing, or His anointed ones. That will bring judgment on our own lives.
Don't be afraid of the Judgment of God. Just repent and there is no reason to fear. If we judge ourselves then we won't be judged with the world, when the Judgment comes.
It will be a glorious time! Jesus is coming back for a glorious church. No longer will He tolerate our complacency, and barely getting by on a little tiny bit of glory. We will be a church full of God Himself. We will be laying hands on the sick, despondent, depressed, fearful, poor, and those in pain, those with diseases, and we'll be raising the dead. (I haven't done raising of the dead yet. It should get interesting.) The fullness of God will literally dwell in us, and His manifested Glory will no longer be on only a few preachers, but He will begin to manifest Himself in the entire Body of Christ. All of the Church will start walking in the Glory. We will no longer be lazy and expect the preachers to do all the work. The whole Body will start taking on the work of God.
Then, Jesus will be able to come in the sky and receive us unto Himself. He won't be embarrassed at how we are living our lives. He will be impressed with us, and our obedience to Him, doing His ways, and caring for the people. Then the end will come. We will be with Him in Glory to spend forever with our true Love.
Caroline, I agree with you that we are under a wake up call and need to be preaching the coming judgment, and I do. I am a little confused by some of your comments. I may just perceive them wrong, or not understand what you are trying to say.
You said the judgment of God was coming in 2005. Do you mean you think the 7-year tribulation will come in 2005, along with the Judgment Seat of Christ, followed by the White Throne Judgment after the 1000-year reign of Christ, and by what revelation do you base this?
Do you believe that disobedient Christians will go through the Judgment, (Tribulation)? If so, what is your definition of a disobedient CHRISTIAN? Is one who confesses Jesus with his mouth and believes in his heart that He is Lord, but stumbles along the way, saved or unsaved? I couldnít tell if you believe in the 1000-year millennium reign here on earth with Jesus or not.
I understand that you didnít intend this article to be a Bible study, but I would like you to follow up with an article that goes into more detail about your thoughts on judgment. This is a fascinating subject to a lot of us and clarification would be helpful.
Most of what you said , I concur with, but I am not sure what you mean about the above mentions. Be blessed.
My article has nothing to do with the tribulation period. This judgment is to prepare us for the rapture. I have no idea when Jesus is coming, as the Bible says noone knows the day or the hour. I wouldn't even attempt to predict when that will happen. God is preparing His people for the rapture. The Body of Christ is not even close to being ready.
