“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

Romans 1:18-20

Time is Running Out

God’s wrath is coming upon the earth because people have chosen the lie over the truth. They have chosen perversion over conversion to Christ. They have draped themselves in a robe of prideful wickedness. People have rejected the Word of the Lord and have chosen Barrabas over and rejected Jesus. How much time do we have left?

What about you who know the truth about God in Christ? Have you picked through the Bible to find scriptures that will justify your life of sin?

2 Peter 2:20-22 says,

“And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. 21It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life. 22They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”

2 Peter 2:20-22

What happens when the clock strikes midnight and all of a sudden Cinderella ain’t so pretty anymore? What will you do when Jesus blasts His trumpet, but your oil has run out and your lamp has burned out?

If the church is gone and you’re still here, God help you!

I’m not talking about Christians living for Jesus, but the disobedient, those living a compromised double life, the prodigals, and backsliders.

Repent and get right with Jesus today!

The Condition of the Church: A Sign of the End of Days

What are some of the pastors preaching today? Jesus’ first message was, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is near!” So why have some churches moved from preaching righteousness and truth to motivational preaching? God is purifying His church today and the Bible tells us that He is coming for a church that is without spot or blemish!

If this is the case then why does the church look so ugly? One example of this ugliness is the United Methodist Church. Their open acceptance of homosexuality has corrupted them. They need to get down on their face before God and repent. They need to publicly confess that that lifestyle is a sin before God.

But listen to Romans 11:22 NLT

“Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.”

Romans 11:22

And 1 Peter 4:17-18 NKJV

“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”

1 Peter 4:17-18

Then 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says,

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters (false worshipers), nor adulterers (the unfaithful), nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous (the lustful), nor drunkards, nor revilers (abusers of others), nor extortioners (those who take things by violence, threats, blackmail) will inherit the kingdom of God (emphasis added).

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NJKV

Believe it or not, that’s the shortlist!

Sadly, People are in for a rude awakening!

Why in the book of Revelation chapter 6, do we see in the 5th Seal Judgment a multitude crying their eyes out saying?

“…O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?”

Revelation 6:10 NIV

So many are going to be left behind because they loved this world more than God and they are going to wake up to a world they never knew before. One day Jesus is going to shock the world! The Bible tells us it will be terrible!

False Teaching: A Sign of the End of Days

Yet, we have pastors trying to fill up their churches and others trying to salvage what they have by preaching unbiblical junk. They may say something about sin but then they say “Thank God that our sins are forgiven.” They say, “Jesus did it all on the cross, so all past, present, and future sins are forgiven.” Then they say, “We will never understand the fulness of God’s unconditional love.” That’s true because God’s love is not unconditional! What are you telling these people? God’s love is unfailing, yes!

But Jesus says in John 14:23,

“All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.”

John 14:23

Jesus says, “My Father will love, who?” “The one who loves Him and does what He says.” We will experience the goodness of God’s love if we live for Him. We will experience God’s judgment if we don’t. Jesus said,

“Don’t think that I have come to bring peace, but a sword. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.”

Matthew 10:34

Not that doesn’t sit right with most people, but love is an action verb. Paul says, in Romans 6, “should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace?” No!

Romans 2:5 says this,

“But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.”

Romans 2:5

Repent and Be Blessed

God’s love should cause us to repent. Our refusal to repent and live a godly life earns us God’s wrath. Many churches would kick me out for preaching like this but let this be a warning!

Pastors, teachers, preachers, evangelists, ministers, prophets, and leaders if you refuse to preach the truth to people because of pride, fear, or greed you will have their blood on your hands. If you obey the instructions of the Lord, calling people to repentance and to salvation through Jesus Christ there will be no judgment upon your heads, but reward.

Woe to the messenger who preaches any other gospel than the one we have received from scripture.

The Apostle Paul says, “…let them be accursed!”

People today God is saying turn from worshiping all the worthless things you have put before Him. Let go of your American idols. Distance your attention away from Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Lil Nas X, the Baby, Jay-Z, Darrel Walls, and many more.

He’s saying “…be holy for I am holy. Be blameless children of God and wake up from your spiritual slumber.”

A Message From the Holy Spirit

I was feeling exhausted a couple of weeks ago and I even asked God to help me get out of this pattern of tiredness, but then I received a message in my spirit, that many Christians are being rocked to sleep by the cares and routines of this world. Day after day; week after week; year after year of out of service, out of order, broken down Christians who are falling into the devil’s trap of busyness and distraction.

Time for this world is running out, winding up faster and faster. All of its traditions, trends, entertainment, wickedness, and lifestyles will soon perish.

The world is calling forth the man of lawlessness, crying out for the devil to reveal himself in the Antichrist.

I truly believe that this generation is on a collision course with the book of Revelation, rejecting anything that even relates to Jesus and the Bible.

The Bible tells us that in the last days ears are going to itch for false teaching, many believers are going to turn away from the faith, and children will rebel against their parents. Along with that, we will experience widespread diseases and wars, and disasters become unpredictable, Jesus said, “All will hate you because of Me.”

He said, “When you see all these things happening look up because your redemption draws near.”

So lift up your head and get excited! Get Ready because the Lord won’t be long now.

Repent of your compromises and turn from your sin. Ask God, “Create in me a clean heart and renew in me a right spirit. Search me and cleanse me. Change my mind and fix my eyes.

Don’t take the grace of our Lord in vain. He was beaten unrecognizable so that you could be healed. He was covered in His own blood on the cross so that you could have everlasting life. Now it’s time for you to take up your own cross and follow Him.

Choose Who You Will Serve

Now that I have told you all of these things, I have done my part. Whether you obey these words or not, it’s up to you. They don’t come from me. They come from God. I am not even worthy to preach such things, but by His grace only I do this.

You decide which god you shall serve. The god of sex, alcohol, money, or satan the god of this age. But as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.

Jesus loves you, make sure you love Him back!

Salvation Plan

Today, if you have not received Salvation or you would like to rededicate your life back to Christ, say this prayer:

God, I know that I am a sinner. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins and I ask you to forgive me. Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross and rose from the grave, for me. I open my heart and life for You to come in, and I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, God for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
