Text: Rev 2:1-5  (King James Version)

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                            The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;"

 

Revelation 2:1   Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

Revelation 2:2   I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

Revelation 2:3   And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.

Revelation 2:4   Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Revelation 2:5   Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

 

Let's pray. Father, Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.

Open my ears so I can hear Your voice.
Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN

 

         The Church has lost its Zeal for Christ and its burden for the Lost!

Proverbs 16:25   There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Proverbs 16:26   He that laboureth laboureth for himself; for his mouth craveth it of him.

Proverbs 16:27   An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.

       
       
God has sent to today to sound the alarm and mobilize his people! 

Ezekiel 33:2   Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:

Ezekiel 33:3   If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;

Ezekiel 33:4   Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.

Ezekiel 33:5   He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

 

2 Peter 3:9   The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:10   But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

2 Peter 3:11   Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

2 Peter 3:12   Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

 

Hebrews 9:27   And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

 

Revelation 20:12   And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Revelation 20:13   And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Revelation 20:14   And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Revelation 20:15   And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

 

John 4:31   In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

John 4:32   But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

John 4:33   Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?

John 4:34   Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

John 4:35   Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Luke 24:49   And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

 

Mark 16:15   And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

 

Matthew 10:7   And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Matthew 10:8   Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

 

Time to Mobilize and make ready with no more excuses!

 

Luke 9:57   And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

Luke 9:58   And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

Luke 9:59   And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

Luke 9:60   Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

Luke 9:61   And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

Luke 9:62   And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

 

        If Jesus Christ is the Same and he is, then the Church has changed.

John 9:1   And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

John 9:2   And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

John 9:3   Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

John 9:4   I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

John 9:5   As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

 

Matthew 5:13   Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Matthew 5:14   Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Matthew 5:15   Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Matthew 5:16   Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

 

Mark 16:16   He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16:17   And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Mark 16:18   They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Mark 16:19   So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

 

Revelation 3:20   Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

 

Matthew 28:19   Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Matthew 28:20   Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
