We're in the last lap of the Christian race and the life God promised to fallen Adam, Eve and their descendants on earth. This is the end time! From infallible scriptural prophecies and the current turn of world events, God is forewarning the Church to forewarn the world of this imminent and very certain deadline!
God's design, will, and desire is for this latter part of the Church's history in general, and our individual lives in particular, to be far more glorious, profitably eventful, and spiritually upright. Eccl.7:8. Jesus Christ is coming back for a Church that is pure, spotless, and without wrinkle or blemish. Now, that's a great and awesome responsibility on our part! But I assure you, with God, it's a possibility!
King Saul started as a man approved by God and all Israel, but later lost the throne and God's favor due to outright disobedience! 1Sam.13:8-14. Next, King Solomon started as a the greatest, wisest, and richest king, highly favored by God and men, but later got entangled in idolatry due to outright disobedience to God's clear instructions. This caused the Nation of Israel to split into two kingdoms! 1Kgs.11:1-13.
Apostle Judas Iscariot was singled out by God as Jesus Christ spent an entire night in agonizing intercession to determine the 12 special vessels He'd pour out his grace on to continue His God-given mandate to humanity. Lk.6:12-16. But, once again, Judas became the Devil's tool of betrayal that lost it in the end! Lk.22:47, 48.
Beloved, you're a child of God; you're not in the dark. God's Spirit in us is telling us that it's time to clean up, sit up, and prepare for our master's return and the accompanying rewards. 1Thess.5:1-11. Don't tolerate fornication, incest, pornography, homosexuality, lesbianism, masturbation, or any form of sexual immorality! Instead, get married, stay clean and save your souls. Marriage is a good and honorable gift from God.
As you contend for it, like all good gifts from God, make yourself marriage-able by spending quality time with God in prayer, infusing, injecting, and inculcating Galatians 5:22-26 into your spirit, soul, and daily attitude. If you're already married, do it still, and very soon, in spite of your spouse's shortcomings, these glorious fruit of God's Spirit will permeate and overwhelm your present or potential marital relationship.
Every type of sin is a deadly weight, a disqualifier, a stubborn, nasty stain and debris that can hardly be swept under the carpet, so beware! Heb.12:1-13.
Have an incredible Christmas celebration in God's awesome presence.
Apostle Steve Adonai.
