I’m sorry but I just can’t stress the fear of the Lord enough. Because without it, we will do whatever we want. Just look at America! Claiming to be of God but here ANYTHING goes. This nation is Antichrist. There is tolerance for all manner of perversion and foolishness but there is no tolerance, not even in the church for truth and righteousness. And I know that’s because the majority of those professing Christ don’t even know, let alone fear God. When you’ve truly met Him, you’ll fear Him (concerning sin). Just like the children of Israel did. Remember when they begged Moses not to let God speak directly to them?
When the people heard the thunder and the loud blast of the ram’s horn, and when they saw the flashes of lightning and the smoke billowing from the mountain, they stood at a distance, trembling with fear. And they said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we will listen. But don’t let God speak directly to us, or we will die!” “Don’t be afraid,” Moses answered them, “for God has come in this way to test you, and so that your fear of him will keep you from sinning!” (Exodus 20:18-20, NLT, You can read more about this in Exodus 19- 20)
But now we have such proud (and self raised!) pastors and false prophets (and self indulgent Christians!) talking about how you don’t really have to fear God. But what God are these people talking about? Because the God of the bible wiped out the entire earth with a flood and killed many people in other instances (including women AND CHILDREN). And I know that we don’t like to talk about all of that. But the TRUTH is what sets people free, not trying the make God or the gospel palatable for sinners. God is not playing around with us and our sins (or our ignorance!). If the prophets were literally afraid of the angels (bowing down and trembling in their presence), how is it that we can be so casual with GOD? It’s because we don’t know Him. We have made God out to be who we want Him to be in our emotions and with our minds (which are CARNAL and hostile toward the true and living God! Romans 8:7). Plus, Hollywood has depicted Jesus to be soft and feminine which we know [that the effeminate] are among those who will not inherit the kingdom according to the bible (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
I’m telling ya’ll, we are truly living in the last days. And I know that some of you are open to this idea but by the way you are living your lives I can tell that you aren’t totally convinced yet. It’s like the end of time is something vague. It’s somewhere down the line. You’re aware but not concerned as if the time isn’t NOW. And even if the Lord doesn’t return in your days, it’s because you’ll die first! So either way you should be alert. We need to get our houses in order. God is HOLY so we have to walk upright before Him. A lot of us are walking around in our own self righteousness (our own standards of what is right or good enough!) believing that we don’t have to do anything because “It’s already done”. But we have to work out own salvation with fear and trembling. Yes, we come to God as we are but we won’t remain the same or be accepted in to heaven as we are. Do not be deceived. We are not saved by our own efforts of righteousness but we do have to prove our faith.
“For just as the [human] body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works [of obedience] is also dead.” (James 2:26, AMP)
You SAY you love God, you sing you’ll surrender all but you don’t obey His commands. And you aren’t willing to give up or to deny yourself the things of this world. So this is a wake up call to repentance. It’s time to start living like you say you believe. If your thoughts and your actions are lining up with the world’s philosophies instead of the bible, repent. Because the judgment of God is at hand. And if you are entertaining yourself with anything (music, movies, certain people and/or their personalities etc.) that glorifies sin or promotes anything that God doesn’t like, TURN IT OFF. It’s conditioning you to accept all that goes against Him. It’s the end of time! The Antichrist is rising!!!
So I hope that you are seeking the Lord while He still can be found because it’ll be too late when we see him coming in the clouds.
With nothing but love,
