2012: It Is Time!

For those that have seen the mess in the church and have unsuccessfully tried to clean things up from within, the Lord is saying, “It is time!” For those that have been hurt and wounded by demonic leaderships of manipulation and control in local churches, the Lord is saying, “It is time!”


For those that have seen the mess in the church and have unsuccessfully tried to clean things up from within, the Lord is saying, “It is time!” For those that have been hurt and wounded by demonic leaderships of manipulation and control in local churches, the Lord is saying, “It is time!” For the divorced, the widows, the fatherless, the nameless, the ignored, and the poor, the Lord is saying, “It is time!” For the Mary Magdalene’s the Lord is calling you out of your detestable condition, “It is time!” For the Samaritan woman tired of the trips to the well, the rejection, the failed relationships, and the search for love the Lord is saying, “It is time!” For those hiding in the shame of the Adulam cave, for those hunted by a terrible past, for those that have messed up terribly, for those that have never been restored, for those who walk with their heads down, for those that have been disqualified, looked over, and not even considered the Lord is saying, “It is time!”

In 2012 the Lord is saying:

“It is time and I will not accept any excuses. It is time to stop talking and start doing according to my instructions; it is time to stop looking for the approval of the status quo, a title or a degree and listen to what my Spirit is saying. For I hold against you that you have delegated what can’t be delegated; you have become lazy and stagnated. You idolize men and go to them for answers before coming to Me. You have allowed your Christianity to be determined by what happens on Sunday morning, but you do not seek Me on your own. I want to spend time with you, I want to speak with you, I have instructions for you, but you have closed your ears and have found comfort in complaining, but I am telling you today… It is time! Would you come out of your dead religion? Are you serious about My call for your life? Are you a pleaser of men? Do you obey them above ME? I am pulverizing the excuses; you are no longer a critic, but I am calling you today to be a participant, not of what men have made of My church, but of what I want for My church. Feel the urgency of My heart, wash your face with my tears for the condition of the lost souls, for My sons and daughters that are hurting, confuse and frustrated. Wash your face with My tears for I am the hope for the hopeless, the way and the life and I have a great plan for you. Come out says the Lord! It is now time! For I call you for a purpose; follow the example of Peter and his brother Andrew:

 

18 And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 They immediately left their nets and followed Him.
21 Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.”Matthew 4:18-22New King James Version (NKJV)

Can you see that I call you for a purpose? I will make you fishers of men! Can you see how they left their father to follow me? Many of you are talking, but you are not willing to leave. InMatthew 9:57-62 you see that when I call I accept no excuses; when I call I demand an instant answer:

“57 Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.”
58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”
59 Then He said to another, “Follow Me.”
But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”
60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.”
61 And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.”
62 But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:57-62 New King James Version (NKJV)

Beloved, it is time!

Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog.

  2. I couldnt have said it better. Ive been carrying around thise thoughts for years abd could not ever have put the same into words like you just did. Honestky some times I dont kniw what to think. Though because if all if these very serious facts stated. Many refuse ti go to any church. To avoid having their feelings hurt. The majority of all Pastors wont admit vn half if ehat you describe.

  4. Many churches have indeed become or maybe even started at nothing more than a social club. Unfortunately many of a church has no need for God to be involved in their church or any leading in any direction. These churches, the pastors have their day of judgment coming and it is indeed coming. God will judge!
    In the midst of all the mayhem with in the church, with all the things that are wrong God is still in control. The church is still Gods chosen bride,even if there are some churches that are harlots. I thank God that there are still men out there are faithfully preaching, teaching and living the Word of God in total submission and obedience,depending only on God. I thank God that despite the wayward churches out there that there are many who still truly seek to be. Godly church and not a man led church. I thank God that overall the church is not dead. The church in America needs awake up call. I am fearful for what it will take to wake us! God move to wake up Your church. Bring life back to dead bones.
