If God should put in His appearance right now, would you be ready to meet Him?
Many people believe that they are saved or born again by just believing in their hearts and yet they haven't gone through the process. (Acts 2:38) says, as well as believing you must repent, and be Baptized in Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
(John 3:6) says, Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water (water baptism by immersion) and the Spirit, he cannot see nor enter the Kingdom of God. It's like having your boarding pass and not your passport or vice versa, you cannot get on board with one and not the other.
The Holy Spirit will enable us to be elevated to meet our Saviour in the clouds.
Jesus made it very clear when He told Nicodemus these things.
This pandemic is not a joke it's a wake-up call, God is giving the world an opportunity to turn to Him.
Prophecy is being fulfilled as (Matthew 24) warns us about these things that must come to pass.
Are you ready to meet our Saviour when He returns or when you die?
Are you worshipping God in spirit and in truth? (John 3:23) says, "The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship The Father in Spirit and in Truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him.
If you are not sure on how to answer any of the above questions please feel free to contact us and we will help in guiding you to prepare to meet our Saviour.
(Revelation 22:10-14) And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still, and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
And, behold I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Greetings all, Is this "the beginning of Sorrow" that Jesus said would mark our time (Matthew 24:8 Mark 13:8) If we read our bibles there is no need for us to wander. We only have to take a look at the world today and there are disasters everywhere. The world is in the grip of a pandemic alongside politically and racially motivated riots, the explosion that rock Beirut, California wildfires, climate change and severe weather in Britain and all over the world, earthquakes in various places, nation rising against nation and Kingdom against Kingdom. Over thirty million are experiencing hunger famine in north-eastern Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and spreading. All these signs Jesus warned us about in Matthew 24.
2020 is like no other year that anyone have ever experienced in our lifetime. The whole world has turned upside down in a matter of months. Society has changed. Is this not telling us that we are in the last days? Isn't this what the bible tells us is the beginning of Sorrow meaning that the worst is yet to come.
It is very sad to see that some people are still stuck in their ways despite this wake-up call of this pandemic which is prophecy unfolding. Some people still refuse to change and they carry on as if nothing has happened. Some people believe that this is just a virus and it will soon pass so that they can slip back into their way of living and the things they enjoy doing.
(Revelation 2:10) says, "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried and ye shall have tribulation ten days, be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of life." God is speaking to His own.
(Luke 21:36) says, Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. We know not the time nor the hour when God shall put in His appearance, yet some people's hearts are hardened still.
(Revelation 20:10) says, And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophets are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
(Matthew 24:4) says, And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you. But some people have fallen in to the trap of the enemy and become addicted to the Worley pleasures, the love of money, personal gains, lust of the flesh and all ungodly things.
(1 John 2:15-17) says, Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in Him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. (Exodus 15:16) says, "If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. I am the Lord who heals you."
(Luke 13:24-27) says, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you will seek to enter in and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord open unto us and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are. Then shall ye begin to say, we have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But He shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are, depart from Me, all ye workers of iniquity.
(Revelation 3:16) says, So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot. I will spur thee out of My mouth. (Romans 8:7-9) says, Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh, cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.
Are you lukewarm?
Will you go before God to hear Him say, you are none of His?
I would like to encourage us all to seek God whilst he may still be found. (Isaiah 55:6).
I hope this message will open eyes and encourage us all to search ourselves to see if we are in line with the word of God.
Stay blessed and stay safe.
What will it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul. (Mark 8:36)
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, The creator of the ends Of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. (Isaiah 40:28)
(Isaiah 43:2) says: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Isreal, your Savior. We are all passing through the waters right now and God is with us. And through the rivers, but they shall not overflow us. We are walking through the fire, and we are not burned, nor does the flame scorch us because God is with us. These are assurances that God has given to His people. As we cross over into 2021 Let us not forget how we got here. If it hadn't been for the Love of God His grace and mercies, we never would've made it. 2020 was like no other year that anyone have ever experienced in our lifetime. The whole world has turned upside down in a matter of months. I asked a question in my first message on Facebook which was, Is this the beginning of Sorrow that Jesus said would mark our time? Is this prophecy unfolding? What does the bible says about these disasters, pestilence and signs. Matthew 24 warned us about these events that must come to pass, is the worse yet to come? My word of encouragement to us all is, don't allow yourself to be distracted in anyway, because this is what the enemy wants us to do. The moment we allow ourselves to lose focus, that's when God will put in His appearance. So don't be caught with your guard down keep looking up and keep praying one for another. Stay focused and grounded in the word of God. This Pandemic is a wake-up call for us all. Happy New Year to you all Stay blessed and stay safe.Pastor Elizabeth Brown and Deacon William Brown
