The Word Of His Intent

By Thomas Downes

 

 

 

There is a way that seems right to a man, but then, again, the Omnipotent LORD wants to send the Word of His intent with power.

 

So be still my soul and listen, for God will speak to you.

 

While the tempest is raging, your refuge He will be.

 

Be still and cease to struggle, seek not to understand; the flames will not destroy you; you are in the Father’s hand.

 

For when the burden is heavy, He seeks to make you pure; to give you faith, and patience, and the courage to endure.

 

The way is not too hard for you; endure the chastening rod.  Your gold shall only be refined, your gold shall only be refined.

 

So what can I give unto The LORD for all He’s done for me?  I’ll take the gift of salvation and call upon the Name of The LORD.

 

Humble yourself in the sight of The LORD, and He will lift you up.  Though the vision tarries, wait for it.

 

The vision He gives you will be the Word of His intent.

Faithfulness, Watchfulness, Stewardship and Preparedness!

By Geraldine Fisher

 

 

Faithfulness, watchfulness, stewardship and preparedness are essential for believers.

 

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation,”    2 Peter 3:3-4.

 

As I began to study and to meditate upon God’s Word, I felt such a heavy burden and a sadness for the coming generations, (my heart weeps for a people who refuse to study and to get to know God and what it is He expects from the church!) because many leaders have not warned or even prepared believers (and sinners through evangelism) for the coming of The LORD, because they believe, like many false prophets, (those walking after their own lusts) do that they have been preaching the return of Christ for years and nothing has happened yet!

 

Jesus’ disciples also wondered the same exact thing!  This is why Jesus sat down to tell them (warn them) what to expect as they began to bring His Kingdom to earth and to do great exploits for him!

 

Jesus said to the disciples, “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled,”   Matthew 24:34 KJV.

 

Meaning, He was saying to them this will not happen in their generation.  But He went on to explain to them it will happen, but their job was to watch and pray as the earth begins to bring forth labor pains!

 

The earth, people, is groaning as a woman in travail and this is why Christ warned the disciples to remain watchful and prayerful like the ten virgins who took their lamps and trimmed them, but some of the five didn’t have enough oil in their lamps, because unfortunately they had been fooling around and was not faithful in maintaining their oil in their vessels!  (Matthew 25:1-13).

 

How many in this season are not prepared for the coming of The LORD?

 

How many in this generation, or the next one, have gone without so much as a warning that Christ is indeed coming back for His bridegroom?

 

And because of this, many will take God’s grace for granted, thinking they have plenty of time to set things right with God!

 

Is this not the trick of the enemy to make the Church think they have, time they do not actually have?

 

But, Jesus the great Shepherd, took out time out of His busy schedule to warn His disciples of what to look for, yet the shepherds and others leading God’s people, do not have the time.

 

But we say we want to do the things that Jesus did, but even greater, and we have left off the coming of The LORD and what to look for, regarding His return!

 

Is it because we as the Church feel it will bring about fear and trembling to those that come to hear God’s Word?

 

Well, according to Christ, it should bring about a “positive fear” that leads us to be Faithful, watchful, to have good stewardship and preparedness when it comes to the Coming of The LORD to receive a heavenly reward, whether we live, die or we are raptured with The LORD!  Just as it did the ten virgins!

 

But, Jesus said to His disciples regarding His return, that the day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.  And then He gave an example, “But as the days of Noah were , so shall also the coming of the Son of man be,”   Matthew 24:36-37 KJV.

 

I believe that Jesus wanted the disciples to know that there was something greater for them to look forward to, other than just Kingdom work here on earth, but that there was going to come a time when every man would have to be accountable for the work he or she has done in the deeds of this body here on earth.

 

This is why He, being a loving Shepherd, took time out to not only teach, but to warn them what to look for and to be ready all at the same time! (Philippians 2:10-11).

 

Than He went on to say,

 

“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, (some did not believe and took grace for granted just as in any generation) marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not (they were not watchful, prayerful, faithful) until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 

It grieves and saddens the heart of God because Noe did warn the people but in this generation many are not even warning the generations to come that both heaven and hell is real and for that you shall give account!

 

Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come,”   Matthew 24:37-42 KJV.

 

And, what I say to one I say to all  —  Watch!
