You can out-distance that which is running after you, but not what is running inside you. ~Rwandan Proverb
It’s a new year and scandals are bursting forth. There’s a horrible scandal in Detroit, Michigan that’s been dragging on and on. There are so many far out rumors and we refuse to even mention them. It’s what many call “Adultery Gone Bad.” It’s a case regarding an alleged extra-marital affair regarding the mayor and his chief of staff.
The new governor admitted some past improprieties regarding marital misconduct on the part of himself and his wife. He also explained that that was in the past and that the two of them (he and his wife) had successfully obtained counseling and repaired their marriage.
WAKE UP FOLKS! THERE’S A PATTERN HERE!
***Have you become “dull” to the sin around you? Can we tolerate it in the private sphere only…or is it like cancer?
It all sounds like something off of television; except it’s real life. How did our society get that far out there? Why is it that people are more and more desensitized to it all?
We’ve always expected our officials to have integrity; we’ve always thought they had more than the rest of us; but is it true? Is it fair? I wonder.
In the absence of a strong moral code where our society writes its’ own set of rules and ethics; it seems we’ve got to get back to basics before things spiral out of control.
These scandals don’t single out the exceptions; they simply highlight the lives of those who got caught. Is that a suggestion that there are a lot more to be caught? I don’t know…but God does. The corruption is going to be exposed; you can expect it!
We need to do more praying. This is evidence of a prayer failure on all of our parts. We’ve got to pray for our elected officials and our future leaders of tomorrow: Spiritual, Political, Financial…whatever; we must pray.
Hey, I’m human; st first I got mad at all of them. You might have too. But, we can’t. The real enemyt is Satan…oh, is he a manipulator! But, I have no respect for him. Don’t you.
These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:
And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD. Zechariah 8: 16, 17
***It always starts small…but a lack of integrity can lead one down a path of destruction; whether it’s a bad habit or deliberate.
These events simple tell us that we are in need of Revival. Now, most people don’t want a revival; but God’s Word is clear on it. Revival will not only purge our souls; but it is also a time for spiritual restoration for the lost and for the saints of God. It’s a good thing and my job is to tell you. What is it that the bible says that we should be doing that we “aren’t” doing? We aren’t raising the dead, many won’t lay hands on the sick, very few cast out demons, many need to see miracles in their lives. What’s missing? That’s easy… many people spend a lot of time trying to prove why “we” shouldn’t expect things that happened in the early church in the body of Christ. That is absolutely ridiculous! I didn’t write the bible, but I sure am glad that Holy men of God did.
Every faith Blogger on the Internet should be calling for Revival…every believer that passes an email should be calling for Revival. Don’t procrastinate. Time is running out.
TIME IS RUNNING OUT……….
If I told you today (If I knew) how many days it would be before Jesus comes back, would you believe me? I doubt you would. I can say rather truly that we’re counting days. Don’t get defeated by THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF THEORY! You think you’ve heard this so many times that today you ignore it and tomorrow is too late!
Do you believe that if people in New Orleans had known in advance about the true impact impending disaster that “everyone” would have done something different or even believed it? Fact is, no one can say. That’s where Satan comes in. He will convince you that you’re overreacting, that you should get angry, that you should do nothing, that the problem really isn’t a problem….and that’s how we start to tell one little lie or ignore facts and pay a heavy price.
YOUR ETERNITY DEPENDS ON HOW YOU HANDLE THIS. GOD WILL WATCH TO SEE HOW YOU REACT TO IT AND WHAT YOU DO.
(Oh, that’s a fact. It’s not important that I know. My job was done when I told you.)
I remember that I told people my eyes were healed. Right after I announced it; I couldn’t see squat. Then, these thoughts came. I heard a voice say: “Buy a magnifying glass and keep it hidden in your room; no one will know.” I yelled out “No!”
I didn’t give ground, stood in faith for almost two whole years! It was very hard!
WE NEED REVIVAL! The country is torn, the world is torn and people have strayed from God’s Word, from God’s rules…even people who love God and I’m not talking about obvious stuff…I’m talking about little stuff….our foundation. WE NEED REVIVAL!
Many are being held back; probably you! Many are being deceived…
When you begin to seek the gifts…THEN THE EXPLOSION WILL COME!
In Peter’s great sermon preached to the crowds who gathered after the lame beggar had been healed, he called for repentance, “. . . so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” (Acts 3:19, 20)
