While the world knows they are in need of the Saviour Jesus Christ, Yahweh’s people have been playing the harlot and have become entrenched in disobedience! Neglecting the things of the kingdom of heaven trading them for filthy lucre; the drunkards, prostitutes, liars, the murderers, adulterers, adulteress, the fornicators, the thieves and all those who sow discord know they are in need of Jesus Christ but have we, Yahweh’s people, have we forgotten 1 John 5:17-18 “All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.” (18) “We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not,” the Word is raising an alarm all across the globe but especially here in the Bahamas from the book of Jeremiah twenty- five (25) which predicted 72 years of captivity for God’s people and fore told of the destruction of Babylon. (1) “The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah (which was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon). ” (2) “Which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying;” (3) “From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, even to this day, this is the twenty-third year in which the word of the LORD has come to me; and I have spoken to you, rising early and speaking, but you have not listened.”(4) “And the LORD has sent to you all His servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, but you have not listened nor inclined your ear to hear.” (5) “They said, ‘Repent now everyone of his evil way and his evil doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD has given to you and your fathers forever and ever.” Have you and I gone after other gods and are we serving and worshiping them? (6) “Do not go after other gods to serve them and worship them, and do not provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands; and I will not harm you.” It is urgent! Repent (me too) people of Yahweh, for the kingdom is at hand and the fierce anger of God is about to be poured upon us!
Could what we are doing as a people and as a nation kindling the wrath of God against us? While you are thinking about this, allow me to share an enlightening experience with you. About a year ago, I was given three kingdom assignments and the time they were to be completed even though I had lots of time but I still allowed procrastination, the thief of time to cause me to put off the completion of this work. After nursing my husband and youngest daughter back to health, they were suffering from a stomach virus; the unthinkable happened, I became extremely ill, vomiting and making frequent trips to the bathroom. In less than 12 hours my life seemed to be rapidly slipping away. At twilight I awakened feeling so sick and as I made my way towards the bathroom, my spirit began communing with Abba Father, “But Father, I did not complete my assignments!” Just then my body grew even weaker and I did not know whether to throw up or sit, well I sat and reached out my hand to tap on the wall to alert my husband but was too weak, did not have enough strength to call out his name. I lost all consciousness and was awakened by an awful scream. My spirit said to Abba Father, “Is that awful scream coming from me?” There seemed to be a fierce fight going on. Something was trying to take me away and it was my spirit fighting back, the body was drained and felt absolutely nothing. My husband came running, he said he heard a loud sound; it sounded like something had dropped from the roof to the floor. He was astonished to discover me lying horizontally on the bathroom in what looked like a sea of vomit. As he picked me up off the floor, I could hear him asking me, Margaret, “how did you get to lie out on this floor like this?” And at the same time still communing with Abba Father, “Father, I feel as light as a feather!” my husband placed me upon my bed and all I could think about was giving God thanks for another chance to complete my kingdom assignments and I asked the LORD for the strength to attend a divine appointment which had already been scheduled for the next day, God is so faithful He granted my request!
What about you? Have you really completed your kingdom assignments? This is a clarion call to the sons and daughters of Yahweh to repent for the kingdom of God is at hand! How can we win the drunkards, the prostitutes, the murderers, the fornicators, homosexuals, lesbians, thieves, the liars, backbiters, the witchcraft workers and all who sow discord. How can we win the lost and administer healing to the broken and wounded when we ourselves are so disobedient and rebel willfully against Yahweh in our actions, words and deeds? The Word is speaking from Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” The Word from Jeremiah 25:4-5 is resounding even louder, (4)”And the LORD has sent to you all His servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, but you have not listened nor inclined your ear to hear.” (5) “They said, ‘Repent now everyone of his evil way and his evil doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD has given to you and your fathers forever and ever.”
Repent! The kingdom of Yahweh is within you. We are in a battle and it is not against flesh and blood. Ephesians 6:10 reminds us, “Finally my brethren, be strong in the LORD and in the power of His might. Do you and I dare enter the battlefield without first repenting of our disobedience and rebellious ways before the LORD? The Word is speaking this time from 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” We as Yahweh’s people must repent first and turn from our wicked ways!
Repent (me too) while the breath of God is in you, for neither you nor I knows at what hour Yahweh will call your soul away! My life seemed to be slipping away rapidly yet I was not confessing instead I was protesting with these words, “But Father, I have not completed my assignments!” I am humbled and am giving Abba Father thanks for His grace, mercy and forgiveness! Question is though, Will you continue on with business as usual even after hearing the Clarion Call, Repent! The Kingdom of Yahweh is Within You?
Much Love as you calmly think about this!
