Escaping the Spirit of the Age
Vital, Essential in these last days
Therefore hear, O Church of the Last Day.
Turn around, repent and change your ways.
Why do you follow the world
And abandoned the Word?
Why have you forgotten what you have heard.
Like you are not the sheep of My herd?
Why am I locked out of My vineyard?
Why am I excluded from my Garden?
Why are My people following the fad?
Why are My sheep behaving like goats?
Why has the salt lost its saltiness?
Why is the light under a bushel?
Why are my people hustling for the world’s goods,
But the world is not hustling for My Goods?
Why is the world in the Church
But the Church is not in the world?
Why are my people going blind
And yet deceived to think they see?
Why are they going naked,
Yet deceived that they are well-clothed?
Why do they think they are rich,
While they are wretched and poor?
Why do they think they’re having fun,
while they are miserable?
Why would they not come for eye-salve so that they can see?
Why would they not come for true gold that endures?
Why would they not rise from slumber?
Why would they not admit they are dead
So that they can be raised?
Why would they not strive to enter
The gate that is strait and the way that is narrow?
Why would they prefer the broad and easy road
that leads to destruction?
Some say ,’Once saved ever saved.’
What a deception come from the pit of hell!
Shall we continue in sin that grace would abound?
Escape the City of Sodom and Gomorrah!
Don’t look back!
Lot’s wife did and she became a pillar of salt.
‘Come out from amongst them and be separate.
You are a chosen generation
and a holy nation.’
‘You are bought with a great price’
You are different.
You are washed.
You are consecrated.
You are set apart for the Master’s use
You are Mine!
Take My counsel and live!
Let your light so shine,
That men will see your good works
and glorify your Father in heaven.
Your life of grace is no excuse
for a life of disgrace.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock
Hear, heed, herald the good news.
Open the door and let Me in;
Into all the rooms –all the nooks and crannies.
‘If Jesus is not Lord of all
He is not Lord at all.’
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree,
19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in."
23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?Rom11
triving for a Crown
24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.
25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.
26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air.
27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
