Living within the culture of today’s society, we as the body of believers must embrace the fact that just around the corner something supernatural will appear. The teaching of Jesus Christ’s return echoes throughout our everyday belief. Our continual prayer and meditation wraps itself around the biblical truth of “the catching away or rapture.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
This promise of our personal Savior’s return has become the motivation needed for every born again believer during some point of their journey. But, the true question remains among the CHURCH today, are we working enough to witness others make the life changing decision toward eternity. A glimpse of HEAVEN along the journey of life definitely keeps our feet walking through the darkness of this world. But, what about those who do not know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior?
Most would agree the end times are surrounding us with every passing second. The Word of God speaks specifically in the Gospel of Luke (10:2) concerning the harvest being great and the laborers being few. The revelation of this message correlates a desire needed for your obedience to work for God while sharing the good news of hope.
Our thought this week would go one step further. Allowing us individually to remember the gleanings that will be left behind. Many people pick through the harvest and gather every piece possible. But, how about those that have slipped through the hands of different churches, people, and even ministries. Those that have been treaded over by others, picked over, or just simply forgotten. Remember, every soul matters!
Enable us to work the harvest field while there remains time. The harvest is ripe. The gleanings remain untouched and overlooked. Our walk amidst this foreign soil has almost concluded. Let us put the demonic spirits, satan, and hell on notice, we are determined to take everyone possible with us on our escape HOME.
