This is a message the Lord gave me on December 15, 2016 for the New Year of 2017.
1 Peter 4:17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
To deal with this judgement we should do this:
3 Things God is saying to “the church” (You and me):
- Humble ourselves!!! 1 peter 5:6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
- Love God!!! Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
- Share the good new!!! Mark 16:15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
There are many things that could have been added to this list but these 3 things is what God told me to write. I said God, shouldn’t loving you come first? He said we must be bowed in our heart and mind and in soul before Him. I had to really ponder this but I understand His point. Even before salvation we must humble ourselves before His great majesty. We must believe and acknowledge Him as the most Holy Supreme Being and accept the gift of His Son Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
Then we must love God with every fiber of our being. As I always say…love God like crazy!!!! If you do, you will want to please Him and do everything He ask or requires of you.
Then we must share this very good news with as many people as we can. Now that we are assured of our own entry into heaven, how can we not be concerned that others get into heaven too?
If you have put Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit on the back burner or no long feel that they are relevant in these days and times then there is only one thing you can do. That thing is to repent. The things that God has asked us to do in His word are non-negotiable. His word does not go out of style. What seems to be in style today is following teachings that don’t line up with the word of God. Start fresh and study the word for yourself. Get clarity from good solid study material. These things are part of the humbling process. Bow down and submit yourself to our Holy God. Repent and respect who He is and respect His word.
Love God like you have lost your mind! It’s Ok because He’s your God. How do you accomplish this? Talk to Him a lot and study the bible. How do you accomplish all this? With time. Date God! Spend quality time with Him. How else do you get to know someone and form a very close relationship with them? Church on Sunday and Wednesday night mid-week service doesn’t do it all.
Tell others about God. I know this is hard for people but I know you can figure out a way to do this. I give out tracts of my personal story that I have written and had printed. Copy that. Join evangelism a team. Pray and follow the Holy Spirits lead and just speak to people you meet. Doing nothing is not good. God gave us instructions and not suggestions to do this. We’re responsible to God for this command.
What is in store for us in 2017? I see a lot of things that have been going on and will continue to go on but I also see a very merciful God in action. I feel God is going to be there for the righteous. We will have a lot to thank God for!! We will see healing and miracles for those He calls His children. There will be protection and answered prayers. In fact God is doing these things even now. We need to be assured of His help. But even if some of us must suffer…He will be there with His help, Strength and encouragement.
Now for those who have not asked Jesus to be there Lord and Savior and do not believe in God it will be very very difficult for you. In the spirit world there are many angels here on earth. I’ve only seen angels a few times in my lifetime but I know they are present here. On the other hand I have also seen the demonic side to and it’s very unpleasant! I saw it this morning before writing this. It was very nasty maggots and worms and other disgusting things all around. They were trying to suck the life out of people and were everywhere. God’s children had protection spiritually from these demonic pest but the unsaved were unprotected and some of the demonic spirits were attacking and devouring people.
In closing with this message…I know it may be strong for some people to comprehend but the bible explains all that will happen in the last days and it’s surely been happening now.
Father God…Please help us in this coming year to be all that you want us to be. Give us strength and encouragement as we humble ourselves and submit to your authority. Lord we do really love you so much. Give us wisdom and guidance as we go out to share the good news of your Son. Thank you for all the help you gave us in 2016 and we also thank you in advance for what your about to do for us in 2017. We give you all the praise, glory and honor that you deserve. I ask these things in Jesus name…Amen.
This is a video I did on what God has said to me in 2008 and 2016:
Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
