Beloveth, I would say it was a quick one, another week has rolled by just in a jiffy. Everywhere is busy and am seeing more of “Red” than any other colour. Is that an indication of  what is in air? Whoop! Love I guess!

Anywhere, we may be talking about that on Monday by His grace, but for now we want to consider the practical side of our long week teaching. Is God unkind? Is He not a loving Father as we were taught in our catechism classes? Has He suddenly change? Do I still have a place in Him? When am done in this part of eternity what will happen to me? or where do I spent eternity after I have lived here on earth?

Beloved, this and many other questions are what goes on in my heart as I was writing and weeping at a time what my ears and spirit man is perceiving from the Word of God.

Beloved, that day will be great and terrible. The judgment day of God. Many will wish it can postponed but alas it will be late for such an individual who had spent 10, 20 , 30, or 60,70, 80 years or beyond without making it to eternity.

Beloved, run while it is still day, night cometh when you can no longer work again. Let us live with the Awesome and fearful Nature of God in mind than a loving and kind Father in our heart. No parent condoles a naughty child, you chide to correct because the harvest time will soon come, whatsoever was sown will be reap.

Beloved, the loving Father Who had a walk in evenings with our fore parents in the garden was the same Father Who put them out of the garden without breaking His law because He is Just.

Today, you are hearing God, do not harden your heart, surrender it Jesus and the Holy Spirit will do the purification and you will be save from the everlasting damnation. Praise God.

Beloved, you have a deal with God today, be wise and be save. God in His Loving Nature is calling on you today. Do not put it off for you know not the numbers of your days. People had die in their day of joy though it is not your portion but you are limited and do not know the next minute ahead of you, so don’t put off this appointed time. Praise God.

Accept God’s hands of fellowship and friendship to you today and you live like a god you were created from the very beginning.

Come to Him, now is the accepted time. If you have accepted Jesus before now this is the time to check how far you are doing in your relationship score card. God bless you.

And if you are yet to give your life to Jesus, your deal with God today must be a remarkable one. Your testimony will be full and the Holy Spirit will uphold you to the end as you decide today. Click here to do so now.

God care so much for you that He is having a deal with you. If I may ask you” do you care enough for that brother, sister, colleague, neighbor, boss, domestic helps, your repairers, parents and children to confront them when they are not living right?” Better still “if they are yet to accept Christ as their Lord and personal Savior?”

Have you bother to tell them about Jesus or correct them whenever they miss it in love or you feel you are not suppose to interfere? Some parents play this negligence role in the lives of their children on the claim that they are now “adult” be careful brother/sister, God will require from you all that He allowed you to see or hear concerning them.

God is speaking to you concerning being your brother’s keeper and your sister’s keeper as well. Read on and be blessed:

“I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man.” Hos. 11:9

The Lord thus makes known His sparing mercies. It may be that the reader is now under heavy displeasure, and everything threatens his speedy doom. Let the text hold him up from despair. The Lord now invites you to consider your ways, and confess your sins. If He had been man, He would long ago have cut you off. If He were now to act after the manner of men, it would be a word and a blow and then there would be an end of you: but it is not so, for “as high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are his ways above your ways.

You rightly judge that He is angry, but He keepeth not His anger for ever: if you turn from sin to Jesus, God will turn from wrath. Because God is God, and not man, there is still forgiveness for you, even though you may be steeped up to your throat in iniquity. You have a God to deal with, and not a hard man, nor even a merely just man. No human being could have patience with you: you would have wearied out an angel, as you have wearied your sorrowing father; but God is longsuffering.

Come and try Him at once. Confess, believe, and turn from your evil way, and you shall be saved. Also be available to be use by God in bring in the Lost or the wandering sheep back to the fold. Care enough to confront:

 On Caring Enough To Confront

A few years ago my wife and I spent the evening in the home of friends who were highly respected in the Christian community. While backing the car out of their driveway, I commented to her that I felt there was something amiss in the family.

Then I second-guessed myself with, “Well, I could be wrongits just an impression. Besides, we shouldnt meddle in other peoples lives.” Soon we were home and the thought dismissed.

Two years later the couple was divorced: The culmination of years of deep-seated, but well-hidden family problems. The wife and children were left devastated and desolate.

The question I must ask myself when faced with friends who may be in trouble is, “Do I care enough to confront them?

Or am I more worried about their rejection of me? About being wrong? Or about “getting too involved?”

Jesus cared enough to confront. When challenged by Peter to not go to the cross He retorted,

Get behind Me, Satanyou are not setting your mind on Gods interests, but mans.” (Matthew 16:23)

Pretty stiff confrontation, wouldn’t you say? Yet Christ’s love for Peter is unquestioned.

James, the half brother of Jesus writes,

If anyone has slipped away from God and no longer trusts the Lord and someone helps him understand the Truth again, that person who brings him back to God will have saved a wandering soul from death, bringing about the forgiveness of his many sins.” (James 5:19, 20 – Life Application Bible)

The opposite of love may not be hate but indifference. Therefore, when I choose to not confront a brother who may be in trouble, it is possible that I simply do not care… at least enough to confront?

That kind of indifference is not evidence of Calvary love.

Beloved, did you read that ‘Calvary love’ not worldly love that is displayed at this season, so be careful enough not to fall into the traps set by the devil in the name of love.

Search out someone this week end to care enough to confront and it also be “to encourage”. Let us not abandon our trying brothers and sisters in the house hold of God. Let us also encourage one another in love in the Lord, I think that should be another “deal” Your heavenly Father will smile at .

See you next week by His grace and remain “chaste” all through this week end. Remember to be involve in ‘only” those things God will put His blessings upon.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
