Matthew 4:12-17 ~
Now when Jesus heard that John had been taken into custody,
He withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth,
He came and settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea,
in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali.
This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:
“The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
“The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light,
And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death,
Upon them a Light dawned.”
From that time Jesus began to preach and say,
“REPENT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.”

Revelation 3:14-22 ~
To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
The Amen, the faithful and true Witness,
the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:
‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot;
I wish that you were cold or hot.
So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold,
I will spit you out of My mouth.
Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy,
and have need of nothing,”
and you do not know that you are wretched
and miserable and poor and blind and naked,
I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire
so that you may become rich,
and white garments so that you may clothe yourself,
and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed;
and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.
Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline;
THEREFORE BE ZEALOUS AND REPENT.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock;
if anyone hears My voice and opens the door,
I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.
He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne,
as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”
Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ. Most who read my blog have likely come across the reality that the word “REPENT” is rarely, if ever, used in the Sunday Social Clubs called “church” in the Western World today.
Many (or more likely MOST) professing Christians do NOT want to hear “REPENT” and may even be offended by it . . .
. . . .believing FALSELY that they are OK, all is well and let’s all take a happy pill of delusion . . .
If we think we get a free ride to Heaven, while abiding in sin, without repentance; that is being a “filthy bride”.
Folks . . . If we want to be a part of the Bride of Christ, we MUST be clean in our walk with the LORD.
Now, for those who do not like to repent . . . Who continue to abide in sin and think “all is well” . . . . You are actually preparing to be a bride as well. Here’s an illustration of your future groom if you do NOT repent:
You see, Satan LOVES it when professing Christians do not repent. He mocks and laughs . . . Knowing that he will be seeing them tormented in hell, then on Judgement Day . . Thrown into the Lake of Fire.
SO MY QUESTION TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU IS THIS:
WHICH GROOM ARE YOU ACTUALLY PREPARING TO FACE?
YAHSHUA . . . Who is coming back for a purified bride?
Or Satan . . . Who gleefully awaits all who do NOT repent and turn FULLY to Jesus Christ, Yahshua our Messiah?
YOU CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY . . . YOU CHOOSE YOUR ETERNITY . . .
Without repentance . . . And with continued sin in our life, we are a STENCH in the nostrils of the Heavenly Father. . .
And WILL NOT BE A PART OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST!!! PERIOD!!! END OF STORY!!!
So, I advise you to ask the Holy Spirit to search your heart and see if there is anything that you need to repent from (meaning STOP what you are doing and don’t do that again). . . Turning FULLY every area over to Yahshua to be LORD over ALL of your life.
Anything less? (Without Repentance) . . . I’m sorry . . . . You have chosen Satan as your groom and eternal damnation as your destiny.
Matthew 7:13-14 ~
“Enter through the narrow gate.
For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction,
and many enter through it.
But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life,
and only a few find it.”
Isaiah 35:8 ~
A highway will be there, a roadway,
And it will be called the Highway of Holiness.
The unclean will not travel on it,
But it will be for him who walks that way,
And fools will not wander on it.”
