Beloved, how was your weekend? How did it go? Made a catch or did not go all? If you made an attempt but is yet to give result that is good enough as lest you have someone to follow up on but if did not, that too bad. Why did I say that? Is simple, you are the only one benefitting from the Word of God, you are not sharing; you are not let out.

Peradventure, you are visiting this site and you are yet to give your life to Jesus, here comes another opportunity you are looking for. Today’s ministration is exactly what  you have been waiting for, so don’t waste the opportunity, this is the Word you need as such a time like this to step into you next level. Come Jesus will do you good.

He is here again to do only that which only Him can do. May God help you as you go through in Jesus Name:

“Why sit we here until we die?” 2Kings 7:3

Dear reader, this little book was mainly intended for the edification of believers, but if you are yet unsaved, our heart yearns over you: and we would fain say a word which may be blessed to you. Open your Bible, and read the story of the lepers, and mark their position, which was much the same as yours.

If you remain where you are you must perish; if you go to Jesus you can but die. “Nothing venture, nothing win,” is the old proverb, and in your case the venture is no great one. If you sit still in sullen despair, no one can pity you when your ruin comes; but if you die with mercy sought, if such a thing were possible, you would be the object of universal sympathy.

None escape who refuse to look to Jesus; but you know that, at any rate, some are saved who believe in Him, for certain of your own acquaintances have received mercy: then why not you? The Ninevites said, “Who can tell?” Act upon the same hope, and try the Lord’s mercy.

To perish is so awful, that if there were but a straw to catch at, the instinct of self-preservation should lead you to stretch out your hand. We have thus been talking to you on your own unbelieving ground, we would now assure you, as from the Lord, that if you seek Him He will be found of you.

Jesus casts out none who come unto Him. You shall not perish if you trust Him; on the contrary, you shall find treasure far richer than the poor lepers gathered in Syria’s deserted camp. May the Holy Spirit embolden you to go at once, and you shall not believe in vain.

When you are saved yourself, publish the good news to others. Hold not your peace; tell the King’s household first, and unite with them in fellowship; let the porter of the city, the minister, be informed of your discovery, and then proclaim the good news in every place. The Lord save thee ere the sun goes down this day.

Amen! May the Holy Spirit perfect His works in you before the sunset in Jesus Name. Let’s keep reading:

“Then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.” Genesis 8:9

 

Wearied out with her wanderings, the dove returns at length to the ark as her only resting place. How heavily she flies—she will drop—she will never reach the ark! But she struggles on. Noah has been looking out for his dove all day long, and is ready to receive her. She has just strength to reach the edge of the ark, she can hardly alight upon it, and is ready to drop, when Noah puts forth his hand and pulls her in unto him.

 Mark that: “pulled her in unto him.” She did not fly right in herself, but was too fearful, or too weary to do so. She flew as far as she could, and then he put forth his hand and pulled her in unto him. This act of mercy was shown to the wandering dove, and she was not chidden for her wanderings. Just as she was she was pulled into the ark. So you, seeking sinner, with all your sin, will be received.

“Only return”—those are God’s two gracious words—”only return.” What! nothing else? No, “only return.” She had no olive branch in her mouth this time, nothing at all but just herself and her wanderings; but it is “only return,” and she does return, and Noah pulls her in. Fly, thou wanderer; fly thou fainting one, dove as thou art, though thou thinkest thyself to be black as the raven with the mire of sin, back, back to the Saviour.

Every moment thou waitest does but increase thy misery; thine attempts to plume thyself and make thyself fit for Jesus are all vanity. Come thou to Him just as thou art. “Return, thou backsliding Israel.” He does not say, “Return, thou repenting Israel” (there is such an invitation doubtless), but “thou backsliding one,” as a backslider with all thy backslidings about thee, Return, return, return! Jesus is waiting for thee! He will stretch forth His hand and “pull thee in”—in to Himself, thy heart’s true home.

Needless me telling you what awaits you at the end because it will not make a singular sense to you, but as soon as you experience new birth ten will broadcast it abroad from what the Lord saved you from. Then will you wept but this time, tears of joy will flow down your cheeks as you will realize that is only God, Who would done this great thing for you.

I call you beloved because that is what God calls you. Take up this opportunity and return back to your Maker. He is waiting, He is only waiting for your return. Praise God.

Beloved of the Lord, hold on to the salvation you have and don’t give up your trust in the Lord. He will bless you and honour you at the end.

This week is declared blessed in Jesus Name. Go in the strength of Lord and return with testimonies. The Lord will bless you and help you to save others that He will bring you way as you walk this week in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
