It's Time To Get Right With God

We live in an age where there is much compromise to Godly living, and where the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ has been watered down to a completely different gospel in order to be 'seeker friendly.' There is no mention of repentance in this seeker friendly gospel, and  very little mention of character transformation and holy living before a Holy God who is about to judge us all.

Mega churches around the world are hell bent (pun intended) on preaching an easy comfortable gospel that promises wealth and the good life only. There is no mention of trials that are destined to come our way, and no challenge at all to lay down our lives and take up the cross daily.

Now I'm not going to get into mentioning names here because it's not up to me to bring any preachers' character into question (their teaching I seriously question), but I want to warn and encourage you, dear reader, that God's way is not the way of a watered down, seeker friendly, and compromised gospel preached by hungry wealth seeking preachers! No! God has His own awesome plan for your life which comes to you through the uncompromised gospel.

God's plan for you, dear reader, is to walk in His awesome presence daily, and to reach out to sinners with the uncompromised gospel. It is to go about doing the good works that God has preordained for you to walk in before you were even born. Ephesians 2:10, 1:4

But here's the thing: God is pleading with His great assembly (and you and I) to repent from all known sin and to live holy before Him. Can't you hear His still small voice? The Holy Spirit is whispering to our hearts: "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you," 2 Corinthians 6:17. 

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 says this: "For this is God’s will, your sanctification: that you keep away from sexual immorality, that each of you knows how to control his own body in holiness and honor,  not with lustful passions, like the Gentiles, who don’t know God."

Be separate from what exactly? From your former sensual desires; from those who teach a compromised gospel; from those who say it's alright to sin because, after all, God understands you're weak willed in your flesh and He'll just wink at it because His grace covers you. Actually, His grace teaches us to live holy lives, see Titus 2:11-12.  It's time to stop making excuses and humble ourselves before a Holy God, and repent from all known sin.

Listen to what the apostle Peter said: "But as the one who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct; for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy," 1 Peter 1:15-16. Dear reader, I point the finger at myself first; what I'm telling you I'm telling myself also. We must get serious with God in this dark hour, and repent and get right with Him.

God has a mighty plan for you and I, and a big part of that plan is to look more and more like Jesus as we grow and mature in the things of God. I plead with you to get with your Lord today, on your knees if necessary, and get right with Him. Confess any sin you've been practicing and repent (turn away) from it.

God has a plan, a plan to anoint an army of uncompromised believers in these last of the last days. There is coming a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit and He's bringing His fire with Him to purge and cleanse a people zealous for good works and the coming revival. It's time to get right with God! 

Have a blessed day
Paul
