Wake Up, Church
1674 Views

Most of us who have had the experience of trying to awaken someone out of a deep sleep, whether it is for work, school, an important event, etc. No matter the reason, the common denominator here is urgency due to the fact that the deep sleeper might miss whatever it is or wherever he or she is supposed to be.

Not sure about you, but I do no want anyone to miss heaven. Therefore, I am not calling on lost people to” WAKE UP”, I am calling on us, the church, the family of God, to “WAKE UP”.  

Not sure who said this, but “God isn’t going to rewrite the Bible just for your generation. His Word remains the same forever and always.” Translation: No one can change the truths of the Bible. It is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

So if you proclaim to believe God’s Word is infallible, let us be honest with one another: There’s a lot of righteous anger you are experiencing regarding the absolute evil and wickedness that is abounding in our society and world today. You are likely not angry of over the “grey” areas of Scripture. You are angry over the red, black, and white areas of Scripture that are being violated in our society today. Me too. 

When Jesus ran the money changers out of the temple, He was expressing righteous anger. They were making a mockery of God’s house of prayer. Today we live in a society that makes a mockery of God’s creation of male and female, His plan for marriage and family, etc.  

Want to overcome the darkness abounding in the world right now?  Then light up!  

Ground yourself in His Word, yield to His Holy Spirit, and believe everything JESUS CHRIST accomplished on the cross at Calvary and resurrection day!!  

He delivered you from the wrath of God, brought you out of the darkness, and forgave your past, present, and future sins. He bore your shame!  He came to dwell in you through the person of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit that guides us into all truth, leads us in the way we should go, convicts us of our sin, helps us exercise our spiritual gifts (Christ in us and through us) and much more! 

Wake Up! Wake Up! The spiritual battle is on! The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. We see it in our relationship with God, in our marriages, in our families, and in our children’s lives. 

Wake up, church!  Wake Up!  

Light up! How? By abiding in Him, the source of all light! Light always dispels darkness! 

Speak truth in love but do speak truth! Why speak truth and why stand for it?

Romans 10:14 (Amplified) 

But how will people call on Him whom they have not believed?  And how will they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?  And how will they hear without a preacher (messenger)?

If the last year has taught us anything it is . . . People Need The LORD!
