Joel 2:1 AMPC: BLOW THE trumpet in Zion; sound an alarm on My holy Mount [Zion]. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of [the judgment of] the Lord is coming; it is close at hand.
My beloved friend in Christ, it appears many no longer care about the judgment day of the Lord, looking at the way they go about their lives. Many assume that the gospel of grace is a license to commit all sorts of evil before God and get away with it. This of course normally arises from poor knowledge of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and also refusing to grow in it. Today’s message is clearly reminding us to be careful as the day is fast approaching and the time is short.
I have news for you: a day is coming when we will account for what we have done. Look at what the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:10 AMP: For we [, believers will be called to account and] must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be repaid for what has been done in the body, whether good or bad [that is, each will be held responsible for his actions, purposes, goals, motives—the use or misuse of his time, opportunities and abilities].
I appeal to you my dear friend, take this warning seriously. Discover God’s purpose for your life and seek God’s help to fulfill it. Don’t go about living a careless life hoping that all is well after all Jesus has paid the price. You cannot do it without God’s grace. He is ready to help you. Simply say Holy Spirit, guide my thoughts, words, and actions. Help me to do the will of the Father. In Jesus Name. Amen. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: I will fulfill God’s purpose for my life here on earth.
Spirit of the Living God, guide me as I seek to do the will of the Father. May I never give up on the Faith which was handed down to me. This year is my year of divine upliftment. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
