Is Hell excited for you?

If there is one thing we must understand about God is His holiness. That He is just and pure. He has purposed to see no sin and His hand will never tempt us nor prevent us from doing good in His sight.

To be in different to God is walk contrary to His purity. It’s to rebel against our original nature as creatures who were created for his good pleasure. We we’re created to be pure and holy as He Himself is Holy. Outside of this is a carnal life which brings no pleasure to God nor peace to man but , ” a certain fearful expectation of judgment” Hebrews 10:27

The prophet Isaiah says to the wicked, ” Hell from beneath you is excited for you, to meet you at your coming.” Isaiah 14:9

The Lord says, ” I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity”. Isaiah 12:11

We live in an era of grace where we can find repentance in The Lord always. It’s a turning away from sin and humbling of ourselves. ” we can therefore come boldly before His throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” Heb 4:16

Are part of Gods building?

construction_planThere is a call in the spirit to honor God again. To return back to his vineyard and form part of His labour team.

In the book of Haggai, the people of Israel return from exile. We read.

“Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the Lord. “ You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the Lord of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house.” Haggai 1:8, 9 NKJV

Jesus is calling us to go out, to share the gospel and His love and to bring the message of the cross to the world. It will bring hope and healing. We are the light of this world, the salt of the earth, seasoned for good works. Lets not forget our call as a church and as a people. As living stones lets be built by the Lord and allow him to use us for the building of his church.

Offended?

bad characterOffenses take place all the time. Only the flesh can be offended though. The Spirit of God in us either judges righteously or deals graciously, but the flesh takes offense. It takes offense because it is proud, it has rights and it has a will. What are we willing to do when we are offended? Fight back? Or, are we ready to loose our rights, deny ourselves, humble ourselves and forgive? Remember, only the flesh takes offense! It holds onto  hurts, it justifies.

Love forgives. Love covers a multitude or sins. Love crucified Jesus to the cross! Are we ready to be crucified with Jesus? To lay down our lives and forgive the offense as he forgave us? Lets put on the cloak of joy and humility and forgive. Don’t let an offense spoil your heart!
