In His Time

If we had come to an agreement that I would perform a task for you, that I would perform that for you which I promised, how long would you wait before you finally came to the conclusion that I was not going to do what I said? Two thousand years is a long time to wait.

Two verses for you among many, “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 3:4) And “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)

Some of the first few realizations that the born-again believer must come to terms with in our walk with Christ is that God’s timetable is not our timetable, that you will not always get what you want, and that one of the greatest measures of faith is patience. The apostacy, the great falling away that we are experiencing today is proof of these statements, the rush of people on social media and other places as soon as this so-called flu hit was to once again sound the cry of Christ’s imminent return for His bride, but two years later now the sounds of those cries has diminished greatly. Two years mind you, not two thousand years.

Those who desire the rapture above all, in my view, are the least ones to serve well on sunny days, they are well prepared when some form of calamity approaches to sound the warning bell, but in those times of peace and prosperity they are most generally silent. We are of course to warn all who will listen, but not of the rapture, our cause is Christ, our cause is to lift up Jesus Christ to the glory of God to all those that are still lost.

I am fairly sure that many of these individuals search diligently each day for some new sign, some proof of the imminent doom that is approaching, and perhaps many of them are good intentioned individuals, but the fact remains, the larger the calamity, the greater their pronouncement. They live by sight, not by faith, and at its base, they have a need to be recognized, pride is their cause, not Christ. We have one purpose when we speak to those that will take the time to listen, to inform them of their need to repent, the call of the prophets has never changed, repent.

To explain to anyone that they are wicked in the eyes of the Lord, (1 Peter 3:12) is not an easy task, especially in these days of the enabled and all-inclusive ideology, “I am how I am, and God just needs to accept that,” has actually been spoken by some. When we have been blessed by the Lord with even the smallest visage of His Holiness, we can begin to see ourselves as we truly are, vile, sinful and unworthy, the view of ourselves is diminished when we view the Lord as He is.

No unrepentant man will look at himself in this manner, he will not admit he is but dust, his pride will not allow it, he must see worth in himself, or he has no worth, no value. “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” (Col. 3:3) Never allow yourself to be deceived, if you are born-again, God does not see you, He sees Jesus, there is nothing of value in us to God. “Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” (2 Tim. 4:8)

The rapture should not be the first thing on our mind, Christ should be, the way of mankind in these evil days should not consume us, Jesus should, let the doomsayers stay deceived, let them live by sight, we are commanded to live by faith. Jesus met you where you were on the day that He had appointed to meet you, He was not late or early, He kept His promise. Stand on the wall and warn, tell them of His imminent return, show them the days we are in, in relation to the Scriptures, but not until you have told them of their need to repent. “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” (John 3:7)
