Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying,
“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.
It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean;
for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”
Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’”
And he said to me, “These are true words of God.”
Being a TRUE believer and follower of Jesus is not easy, nor is it for the “faint of heart”. If you look at the persecution of our beloved brothers and sisters around the globe, we are the MOST targeted, hated, hunted-down, tortured, raped, murdered, enslaved group on the planet, merely because we love Jesus.
What is a “radical Christian?” One who loves the LORD Jesus more than anybody or anything and will lay his/her life down before denying Jesus. These are individuals who pray and fast, who intercede for the souls of the lost, begging for mercy upon their enemies and seek to love those who hate them. . . .
Who deny themselves to serve others in sometimes the most difficult circumstances. Who only want ALL to know the truth of how much the Heavenly Father LOVES them, sent His only begotten Son to die for them and prays they will not have to suffer in the eternal lake of fire torments. . . . and yet, the most hated on this planet.
Even within the “professing” (and lukewarm, fallen away) “Christian” community, there is a disdain, scorn and even mocking of the “radical Christian” who sees repentance and forgiveness as a vital part of a true believer and follower of Jesus and the need to be DAILY clean in our walk with the LORD.
The word “repent” is seen as something to be avoided in today’s “let’s all be happy” social clubs that meet in a building on Sunday.
The glossy “gospel” of churchianity is spewed from the pride pulpits, giving the ear-tickling messages that the self-serving, self-righteous, back-slidden “churchian” loves to hear, so he/she can feel good about him/herself and continue in a life that is heading towards the flames of hell.
When discussing the corporate need for repentance and forgiveness, one may even hear: “WE DON’T NEED ANY MORE OF THAT” or “YOU ARE JUDGING US” when the Holy Spirit shows there is an expressed and dire need to gather together to ask Him to search our hearts, so we could repent and forgive. So we can turn FULLY back to Jesus and be Holy in the sight of our Holy God, to be made clean and ready for the return of our LORD.
The message of “prepare the way of the LORD” and “be clean before our Holy God” is stifled . . .
. . . as the focus of self and lack of repentance and/or lack of forgiveness continues to grow and fester, killing off the possibility of conviction by the Holy Spirit. The hearts grow colder, while continuing in a “form of godliness, but no power thereof.” (2Timothy 3:5)
HOW THE LORD GRIEVES OVER THE LOST THAT ARE FILLING THE BUILDINGS ON SUNDAY AND DON’T REALLY KNOW HIM AND WON’T REPENT!!! . . . Who USE the Name of the LORD in vain, by saying “I am a Christian” . . . AND DON’T KNOW HIM!!!!
BLESSED ARE THE PASTORS WHO PREACH THE FULL GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AND BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO ARE IN THEIR CONGREGATIONS.
Jesus said: “Now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? But I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” ~ Luke 18:7-8
May ALL who claim to be a Christian, truly KNOW Jesus in an intimate, personal, bride-in-love-with-her-groom way.
May EACH DAILY ask the Holy Spirit to search our hearts and show us anything that is unpleasing to HIM, so we can repent . . .forgive and be Holy before our Holy LORD.
“WILL I MEET YOU AT THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB?”
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world,
but that the world might be saved through Him.
He who believes in Him is not judged;
he who does not believe has been judged already,
because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world,
and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
For everyone who does evil hates the Light,
and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
But he who practices the truth comes to the Light,
so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”
