So as I was ringing in the 2014 New Year at church, my mother received a Word of Knowledge from God that said this:
“Do not look to the left or to the right, I AM COMING SOON“
And it REALLY hit home. Now, every one is going to have their own interpretation on what that phrase means to them, but when I heard it, my interpretation was; DON’T BE LUKEWARM.
Today, the word Christian is so loosely used. There are so many Christians (myself included) that label themselves as Christians, yet their works do not back them up. I am not suggesting that our works can save us, but our works can SHOW the world that WE ARE SAVED. We can’t just call ourselves Christians, go to church every Sunday and serve every other day but not have actions to back up what we believe.
So many Christians are living like hypocrites today and not living a holy, consecrated life because they don’t want to offend those around them. You better believe that the world is watching and judging you very closely if you call yourself a Christian and you better believe that if you call yourself a Christian, they expect you to LIVE LIKE IT; not up partying, drinking, having sex and all that.
If we, as Christians, can’t offer the world anything better than what it already has, then what good are we for the Kingdom of God? I’m not saying this to condemn anyone, I’m saying this to give you something to think about. We can NOT be ashamed of the gospel! We have to live a totally sold out life to Christ or it’s nothing at all. There is no middle to this thing, you guys. The middle (carnal, lukewarm, fence.. Whatever you want to call it) is the devils territory. You’re either all for God and sold out or your cold for God and hot for the world. Your choice. God loves you either way, I promise you that, just PLEASE make a choice.
‘Well, Katie’ you may say; ‘At least those that are carnal, lukewarm and on the fence know Jesus. They may not live like it, but at least they know Jesus. Does that count for something?’
“I know your works; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:15-16 ESV
Having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3:5 ESV
NO SISTERS IT DOESN’T!!!!! The carnal man or woman is worse than the cold person! They’re out here spreading lies and misleading people! THEY ARE THE WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING!
So my question to you all is: Are you ready to really be faithful to God? Are you ready to be completely sold out to Christ? Are you ready to live a holy, consecrated and pure life? If so, just surrender to God right now! Ask Him to help and lead you so that you may live completely sold out to Him. Cry out to Him now. I promise you, He will answer you.
I love you all and I hope everyone has a good week! Remember that God is ALWAYS faithful and He loves you with an everlasting love. ❤
