He has chosen you and placed you on the earth not to do your will but His. It’s time to forsake all Idols - anything we have made more important than our walk with God and obey His commandments. He says - if you love Me, you will keep my commandments. Let’s be real before God, confess and repent from distractions which have taken our time and attention away from Him. We can’t be in church because we are consumed with making money and paying bills so we work on Sunday’s, we have our children doing so many activities - there’s no time to pray with them or teach them the Word if God, social media has not only stolen time from our children but us as well. We are obligated to so many events and pleasures, that all we have time for is a quick prayer before going to bed. We don’t read our bibles and we don’t concentrate our minds and bodies to God. We haven’t set aside daily time for Him. Today there is no bar set in our churches - so we serve other gods and do not realize it.
Before 2019, let us sanctify ourselves and purify our lifestyles to be ready to be used for His service! I will be writing instructions for how to prepare for the awesome year God has for His people!
To all who are attending our 3 day revival (Dec 30,31 & Jan 1) I would like you to prepare a list of things you are choosing to eliminate in your life or things you are changing - altering to please the Lord. Also, make a list of one thing you want to see God change in your personal life (health, finances...), your family’s life, your service to God and what you do to earn money. Further instruction will be given during the New Year’s Revival to make this 2019 a starting point of many successful years to come!!!
BE AWARE OF THE SEASON WE ARE IN, GIVE YOURSELF TO HIM WHOLE HEARTEDLY and never look back. Great blessing He has for the obedient, and we are coming into some of the finest years yet!
HEZEKIAH BEGAN to reign when he was twenty-five years old, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. And he did RIGHT in the sight of the Lord...In the first year of his reign, in the first month, he opened the doors of the house of the Lord [which his father had closed] and repaired them. He brought together the priests and Levites in the square on the east And said to them, Levites, hear me! NOW SANCTIFY (purify and make free from sin) yourselves and the house of the Lord..., and carry out the filth from the Holy Place. For our fathers have trespassed and have done what was evil in the sight of the Lord our God, and they have forsaken Him and have turned away their faces from the dwelling place of the Lord and have turned their backs. Also they have closed the doors of the porch and put out the lamps, and they have not burned incense or offered burnt offerings in the place holy to the God of Israel. Therefore the wrath of the Lord was upon Judah and Jerusalem...for, behold, our fathers have fallen by the sword, and our sons, our daughters, and our wives are in captivity (families in bondage). Now it is in my heart to make a covenant with the Lord, the God of Israel, that His fierce anger may turn away from us. My sons, DO NOT NOW BE NEGLIGENT, FOR THE LORD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO STAND IN HIS PRESENCE, TO SERVE, TO BE HIS MINISTERS and to burn incense to Him. 2 Chronicles 29:1-11 AMPC
