If we look at a day with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day, all your good and bad aspirations come to settlement. Nothing is hidden with Him. The very question you must answer for now is how you’re going to face the great challenges with a steady; unshakable position. Haven’t you wonder the pursuits of evils in this world is so strong? Why you’re having hard times winning in every battle? It’s obvious, you’re entrapped, glued to lies or weak in your faith!
There have always been wars, rumors of wars, martyrs, oppression, mandates that stripped freedoms, and we even had a merging of all religions into one in 325 AD by Caesar Constantine …which was actually a one world religion and followers of the way of Jesus were told to take the book and eat it up…for this is what they are now serving again. Used your clear lenses, see the struggles of the innocents in this world are mainly by the works of devil. It hurts to still see people unmindful and asleep of the manipulations where they are brutally targeted. Would you stay cold to the cries around? Remain hot, strong with fire to stand up for Christ? Or a wavering coward, double minded , lukewarm that need to be spit forcibly?
TO THE CHURCH IN LAODICEA
“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.” Revelation 3:14-17
The Laodicean Church was a Christian community established in the ancient city of Laodicea. The church was established in the Apostolic Age, the earliest period of Christianity, and is probably best known for being one of the Seven churches of Asia addressed by name in the Book of Revelation. Wikipedia. Out from the Seven churches, Laodicea was hard to understand, pitiful and spiteful to the Lord. In times as this (Revelation Generation) one has to choose one side, a stand he should proclaim to defend for life. It takes a solid unwavering faith . What it is then?
WHAT MAKES IT LUKEWARM?
It was once been hot and on fire in its dealings, beliefs, commitments and love. One has made it through to be there, to belong , to mingle and be part of the chosen elect but was not for long. The intensity died down, compromised and there was belittling of the faith. That even God wish you were either one or the other to be identified. Hot water or a food turn cold when left untouched for the surrounding lay waste to the elements totally.
Anyone can be affected by the catastrophe produced in the world right now and no one has to be excused. There are different kinds of people evolving in this global end times events. Speaking mainly to those who are called or those who are saying they are Christians, believers and considered themselves as children of God. They are in the government, in the workplaces, in your sphere of influences , they’re even with your closer groups and alarming the most they’re inside the church. But actually they’re soon to be spit out from the mouth of God. They are those people whose talk is not what they walked. Whose actions are different from what they say. They are those who are mingling in the society, masquerading with the sheep. You can’t tell their true colors but not God for He knows clearly that they are neither cold nor hot and because they are lukewarm they are distasteful. “DISGUSTING” as what Stew Peter loudly say in his speech at AFPAC3! These people thought they’re stable , in good hands and safe in the side they’ve chosen to pretend, but they’re truly not!
But God said: “You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. Revelation 3:17 NIV
REMEDY FOR BEING “LUKEWARM” : A SPIRITUAL DISEASE
“I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.” Revelation 3:18 NIV
The world is combating with a temporary disease (Covid-19) but unmindful to the real disease that invading within. No other means to cure this “SPIRITUAL DESEASE” but coming back to God willfully and whole heartedly. Follow what God has told you Church in Laodicea : I counsel you to buy from me … 1. GOLD REFINED IN THE FIRE, so you can become rich. 2. WHITE CLOTHES to wear, so you can cover your SHAMEFUL NAKEDNESS; 3. SALVE ( ointment) to put on YOUR EYES , so you can SEE.
1. GOLD REFINED IN THE FIRE— so you can become rich.
Laodicea was a wealthy, industrious city in the province of Phrygia. So they’re proud to say: “I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.” If life for some was going well enough, things pertain to God are just secondary. But their sides are just temporary and defective. What this world offers you are actually things that torment your soul it’s more than just a disease of lukewarm faith. James wrote that your silver and gold are cankered. It will not save you. James 5:3 “Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.” The richness of life comes only in a gold refined in fire, a life tested by times. This will make you in a blazing fire for defending the truth. For His words in rage to be known in you.
“But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.” Jeremiah 20:9 NIV
2. WHITE CLOTHES TO WEAR… so you can cover your SHAMEFUL NAKEDNESS
Adam and Eve once trapped by the enemy and sinned; seen their nakedness and were ashamed before the Creator. A white garments that even Jesus wore it on His resurrection to show that the power of darkness was already been destroyed and cannot keep on enslaving God’s people. “His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. Matthew 28:3 NIV. The enemy is actually keeps on undressing humanity from the good things God has bestowed on them . You may never knew it, cause you’re not mindful with the things from God and so relax with you faith. The best remedy for darkness is purely the Light. Only a Holy God can restore what satan has dismantled. He alone can bring Light to the darkness. You don’t need to stay hiding in darkness full of shame and fear. It’s about time to take the side of Light without wavering of your faith! Put on the new white clothes of righteousness let the Holy Spirit cover your sinful nakedness!
3. SALVE ( ointment) to put on YOUR EYES… so you can SEE.
If the world offers you remedies, a medicine they thought could bring you the best life you wanted; remember the devil had offered that too to Jesus but failed and was rebuked. Through the church of Laodicea, you are told by GOD to buy a SALVE an OINTMENT OR A MEDICINE to HIM FOR YOU TO SEE THE REALITY NOW IN THE WORLD. To clear your eyes from any elements that caused it blurry and blinded your sight. To open your eyes SEE THE TRUTH AND LIES that were unfolding in front of you with this your faith will become stable in the Lord.
When the world has never been the same anymore will you stay with your obsolete views infuse by satanic lies? When the devil tripled its work will you keep on a laxest pace ? The spiritual war of this disease is not just inside the church where hypocrisy is the most and not even in your comfort zones. There’s no place for a LUKEWARM Christian in a raging battle where good must be victorious. You are required to stand your ground, choose your side, and boldly proclaim your FAITH IN JESUS WITHOUT FEAR AND HESITATION !
“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.” Revelation 3:19-21 NIV
As a popular spiritual disease, a lukewarm faith has so much indications of a double minded, fearful, doubtful and fake heart. THEY ARE FAITHLESS HUMAN BEING! AN IMPOSTOR! A HYBRID BLOODLINE! NOT A PUREBLOODED (DOUBLE HELIX) CREATED BY GOD BUT WITH ALTERED MIXED (TRIPLE HELIX) DNA! Do you want to be on that side? GOD is calling, keeps on calling, and calling again ! And still waiting for you to take His side strongly for HE DOESN’T WANT TO SPIT YOU OUT FROM HIS MOUTH! The choice is yours!
“Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”Revelation 3:22 NIV
