IT WILL BE TERRIBLE IF YOU MISS HEAVEN
Sunday, December 20
1 Thessalonians 3:1-5
"1 Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone;
2 And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:
3 That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.
4 For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.
5 For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain."
"Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain."
The devil wants to make you labour in vain. He wants you to be a loser, so he comes to you to tempt you and make you to fall. Sometimes, it is persecution that comes to you. Severe persecution such that you are tempted to say, “My husband doesn’t want me to continue, so, there is nothing I can do anymore.” Is your husband greater than God? Or you may say, “My boss in the office is threatening to sack me because I refuse to dress in disobedience to God’s holy standard.” If you hearken to them, it means you have not understood Jesus for yourself.
Satan has sworn that if he could get any member of Holiness Revival Movement into hell, he will handle him or her personally because you have access to grace and knowledge of truth above many in the world and you wasted it. If you still disobey God despite all the abundant grace bestowed on you, even Satan will want to comfort the heart of God by judging you and punishing you for being a grace-waster and unprofitable child. The prodigal son came to his senses and went back to his father but if you choose to be stubborn and die in your sin, how will it be with you?
The Lord has been confirming these things and taking people to heaven and hell by revelation and telling us practical things about heaven and hell. We have books and materials that explain teachings of holiness and righteousness as well as emphasis on the realities of life. We have prophesies that come fresh from heaven. We have testimonies of people, clear revelations of people that made heaven. People speak from heaven and hell and we hear them, yet you are still on the way to hell! The grace of God and practical knowledge that is available to members of Holiness Revival Movement Worldwide is enormous.
The special things that are made plain and cheaply available to sincere seekers in HOREMOW are hidden in many Christian assemblies. This knowledge is veiled to many people. A veil covers them such that they have not been able to look to the holy of holies. Yet you are still practicing hypocrisy and witchcraft? It will be terrible for you on the last day. It will be terrible on your life when you miss the rapture.
Thought for the day:
Watch your life so that you do not labour in vain.
Song for the day:
When He calls me, I will answer....
Bible reading for the day:
Micah 4-5; Revelation 11
