I am amazed by how much the society influences us every day, we are more inclined to words than fact and we don’t even know what the truth is. Or is it that we have refused to believe what is true because we haven’t searched for the truth, the word.
As I was reflecting through scriptures, the Lord ministered to me some key facts that go beyond words.
- We are a generation that is neither bothered nor interested in Christ coming back.
- We are lamps yet we produce no light because we have no fuel
- ‘Assuredly I say to you, I do not know you‘, these words will be so real to some of us
Mathew 25:1-13, talks about the parable of the ten virgins and most of the time I consider myself to be the five wise ones. Who on earth sees themselves as the foolish ones really?! These ladies never got to see the bridegroom after a long day wait and for one foolish mistake; they did not fill their lamps with oil.
We are a generation that is neither bothered nor interested in Christ coming back. This right here is fact, we are not ready for Christ coming back and we think He will wait for us to be ready to come back. It has been spoken that Christ is coming back soon, and just like the five foolish virgins we have done nothing for His coming.
We tell ourselves that we will see it, so there is no need to worry. These virgins assumed that it was going to be during the day, and when the bridegroom came at night they were found unaware, are we going to be found unaware? Is it going to be our humanly timing in relation to God’s perfect time?
It is disturbing to me that our generation live their life 1. Not caring who Christ is 2. Not thinking about their life after death 3. We assume that we have our life plan sorted.
2 Peter 3:10-13, truth, all these shall pass away, your worldly possession will all be gone but His coming will be so real like nothing ever felt. You might think it doesn’t concern you because it has been said for years and He is not yet here. The truth is it is now much nearer than it was in the beginning of the year 2000.
You might assume that you are safe because you don’t believe in the ‘Jesus Stuff’, sad that you think so about yourself because the truth is you are neither the wise nor the foolish. You have no existence in this life and even in the life to come.
This is not to scare, but to let you know that His second coming is so real and whether you are interest or not He is still coming.
We are lamps yet we produce no light because we have no fuel. I have learnt that I can’t make it in this world on my own understanding, so I keep searching for truth, strength and hope in the words.
Does the world see you as the lamp that is producing light? Mathew 5:14-16,
is so clear that we are the light of the world; we are a city set on the hill that can’t be hidden. Through your light the world will see good works and glorify the Father who is in heaven.
How often do we know this? Are we aware that the fuelling of our lamp is in the word? I believe that we are not in the world in such a time as this to be lamps that produces sooth. With all the recent persecution on the body of Christ we need to be filled and ready to produce much light for the darkened world.
But how can we be that light really? If the word to us is so boring, we value self help books more than scriptures, we are willing to read peoples ideologies and not what your creator says in His word. How is the lamp going to be filled? When we don’t purpose in us to know what the Lord desires for us.
No wonder we are afraid, no wonder we are enslaved to sin, we have allowed our lamps to run dry that we only produce chocking sooth. Our words are filthy and they destroy instead of building, we seemed to have made an alliance with the devil.
Till when will we do that? Christ is coming, and all He wants is to find lamps that are up and filled, lamps that have been ready waiting, eager for the presence of the long awaited second coming. Sad that we don’t think of this, it’s amazing what we feed our self with pure lies and deception. The day is coming when we will cry and beg for exception yet we are now busy excluding Him from our life.
‘Assuredly I say to you, I do not know you’, these words will be so real to some of us
After all is said and done the day of the Lord shall come, how I pray that these words won’t be heard by any of us.
The bible says that these ladies went to refill their lamps because they were found unaware and when they came back they started to knock on the door calling ‘Lord, Lord Open for us’. May we not be left on the other side of the heaven’s gate because our lamps were not filled or we were not even aware that He is coming back?
Just like the recent Don and Lenny’s concert that we had waited for one whole month with anticipation may it be so to with Christ. The same way we kept time to attend the concert and never wanted to miss any of his songs as he sung live may it be so too with us, that the bridegroom will arrive and the party will begin with us present.
Let us purpose to have our tickets ready for the grand concert, that none of us will be rushing from one shop to another looking for tickets only to be told they are sold out.
Sorry the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit do not know you, as unreal as it might be for some of us, this right here are facts. Some will hear these words loud and clear. Its up to you to decide, will you be ready or not?
, I am still saying this to the end ‘….as for me and my house we will serve the Lord’.
With Deepest Love,
