Call to Return and Commit

October 2, 2012

Revelation 3:14-22
“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. 15I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17You 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. 18I 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.
19Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. 20Here 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 him, and he with me.
21To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Call to Return and Commit

Hear what the Lord is saying this day. His exhortation to return into Him. The time of religion and pretense is past and His warnings grow short. Father is speaking to all of us that have spiritual ears and that can hear. “Turn your attention away from the world and unto to Me,” says the Lord. “I redeemed you and gave My life for you. I bought you with the price of My blood. It is not in your spiritual knowledge that you are made spiritual, it is in your walk and intimacy with Me. I have been knocking on the hearts of My people for some time now, but so many have grown dull to My calling. They shut out the intimacy of my presence and fellowship, for the busyness of their schedules and lifestyles. My people have become to busy for Me, they are so caught up in the technology and distractions of this age. Hear My people what I say unto you, “Cursed is the man that rejects me and is offended in me. You have cursed yourselves, because you have gone to you idols of technology, comforts and convenience.
Awake, oh you that sleeps, from the dullness of mediocrity and selfishness. I rebuke you because I love you. I call out to you because I want My highest for you. Let not the sacrifice I paid for you be for nothing. Do not crucify Me afresh.
Repent, My people, and return to Me. Your time is short. Return unto Me with all of your heart and I will cleanse and restore you once again. Open the door of your heart and allow me to come and sup with you, to have fellowship and sweet communion with you. Pull down the cardboard exteriors of pretense and hypocrisy and make yourselves real and available to Me.
I am calling out to My own and My sheep will hear My voice and respond to it. A mediocre faith is not what I have called you too. I have called you to be My disciples, to pick up your cross and follow me. Follow me with all of your heart or not at all. Choose to be hot or cold, but be no longer complacent, for that is abhorrent to Me and not acceptable. Choose this day whom you will serve. If you are on the Lord’s side then come and follow Me with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength. ”

Blessings,
kent
