Hey hey hey!
“No one knows, however, when that day or hour will come — neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son; only the Father knows. Be on watch, be alert, for you do not know when the time will come. It will be like a man who goes away from home on a journey and leaves his servants in charge, after giving to each one his own work to do and after telling the doorkeeper to keep watch. Be on guard, then, because you do not know when the master of the house is coming — it might be in the evening or at midnight or before dawn or at sunrise. If he comes suddenly, he must not find you asleep. What I say to you, then, I say to all: watch!”
Mark 13:32-37 GNB
Are you asleep?
Or, let’s start from the beginning; when last did you hear or think about heaven and hell?
I’ve been reading ‘Driven by Eternity’ by John Bevere and in the book, he establishes that the belief in and constant reminder of heaven and hell is supposed to be a FOUNDATIONAL truth/knowledge for every believer. In fact, it should be talked about more often than not.
Can you truly say that you’re DRIVEN BY ETERNITY?
Your motives, actions, lifestyle; do they show that there’s heaven as a promise for everyone who believes in and LIVES like Jesus while hell is for those who reject Him?
Are you asleep?
This is not to scare you, but do you realize that you will give an account of your life on earth?
Do you know that you will not be judged according to your human/man-made standards, but according to your divine destiny and what God put you here to do?
Do you know that God sees every secret and knows what others will never know about you?
If he comes suddenly, he must not find you asleep…
What does it mean to be asleep for you?
I added FOR YOU, because you’re not to judge based on another person’s life.
We can ignore it, refuse to talk about, or even reject it; but it doesn’t change the fact that heaven and hell are real.
If Jesus comes now, will you reign with Him glory?
Or, think about it this way, if you knew without doubt that Jesus was coming back in 3 days, what will you change?
I particularly like to ask myself the 3 days question because it gives me a different perspective to my life…and things I’d be more fervent with.
It also makes me ask myself- so, why am I not doing those things I’d do if I knew Jesus was coming in 3 days?
Am I awake and busy with my divine destiny?
How many people have I told about Jesus?
How many souls will I account for?
Do I even care that people are perishing or am I more concerned about gathering things of no eternal value?
Am I too shy to be awake for God’s purpose for my life?
As a believer, you shouldn’t be living life unsure of where you’d end up. What is the use of dragging people to heaven and then missing it?
David said every night, before bed, he examined himself. Not with the condemnation and guilt the devil brings, but with humility…
What you did today, did it matter to God?
Was it driven by eternity?
Heaven and hell are not myths so let’s stop acting like it’s one story from Disney land…
I wrote this post online few days ago that I think you should read. (It kinda relates with today’s message). I know not all the efamily here are friends with me on social media so…
Here it is:
CHRISTIANITY: ABOUT THE CHURCH OR ABOUT CHRIST?
The most frequent question I get during invasion (evangelism) is ‘What Church is this?’ Or ‘What is the name of the Church organizing this?’
#SinceIJoinedWOTS (Word on the Streets), I’ve come to see how much Christianity has become competition of Churches instead of the message of Christ Himself.
When I first started evangelizing with my church, I spent basically the whole time telling each person about my church (the name, location, etc) instead of telling them about the Good News of Jesus Christ. I’ve now learned that it is less about the name and ‘swag’ that comes with belonging to a particular church and more about living for Jesus gan gan.
Church-going isn’t Christianity if your lifestyle doesn’t align with Christ’s. People were FIRST called Christians in the Bible because they BEHAVED like Jesus Christ. Is your lifestyle like His?
#SinceIJoinedWOTS, I’ve learned to see every human as a soul that needs to know Jesus, not just my church. We’re mandated to preach the gospel to ALL the earth, but only a small fraction of the earth come INTO the church. This means that we must GO OUT.
If they won’t come in, we MUST GO OUT. (We die there. Lol)
Don’t despise fellowship and gatherings of the saints because every believer needs spiritual growth and Godly relationships; but any gathering or church that exalts itself (structure, people, accomplishments) above Jesus is ungodly.
And any one that wants the spotlight on him/herself instead of God isn’t to be trusted.
Jesus was concerned for souls to come home. In fact, He came so that no one will perish. So, why aren’t you concerned?
Why so ‘lukewarm’?
Why so quiet?
God, help us to draw souls to the kingdom. Evangelism isn’t the work of an Evangelist, it is the assignment of every believer.
