Our Good Shepherd calls to us, but only His sheep hear and respond to His voice. YAHshua wants to grant us eternal life but first we must tear down our idols at any cost by the might and power of His wonder working Spirit.
The last days are upon us and the exhortation to overcome and endure to the end is spoken over and over again in the book of Revelation. We must go into a fitness program, preparing ourselves to leave behind self-indulgences.
Idolatry is rebellion against YAHveh’s (the LORD’s) Commandments and no idolatrous person will enter heaven. For whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. As the Almighty said, “You shall have no other gods before Me.”
We must count the cost to follow our Savior. YAHshua said, “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father, mother, wife, children, brothers, and sisters, yes, and even his own life, cannot be My disciple.”
Father, may we be strong in You. If we resist the enemy, he will flee. I pray for righteousness to pour down upon our hearts now, giving us the strength to overcome for nothing is impossible for those who trust in You.
How many of us have had a nightmare about missing a flight? Whether you are ready or not, the plane is going to take off. Destruction is coming, whether we’re ready for it or not. YAHshua is coming for His redeemed elect.
If our eyes are not riveted upon YAHshua they will be allured downward. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). YAHshua is coming for those who are lovingly waiting for Him.
In the last days, scoffers will say, “for years they’ve been saying He’s coming back, but He is not.” Indeed, “faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” Be counted worthy by being faithful and wise.
Our Messiah is our reward. If YAHshua is not enough for us and waiting longingly is boring and unfulfilling, then we will turn to the friendship with the world that will make us an enemy to YAHveh. Instead, wait patiently.
Wake up, be wise, and redeem the time for our Bridegroom YAHshua (Jesus) who is coming. There are keys about wisdom and keeping watch in the parable of the ten virgins that will also help prepare us for His return.
