The Lord dropped the following passage of Scripture into my Spirit last night.
Rom 13:11 — Rom 13:14
Put on Christ
And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
A second passage of Scripture came to me as I was posting the one above.
1Th 5:4 — 1Th 5:8
But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
We all need to examine our walk with God as the time is short. Now is the time to make sure your house is founded upon the Rock and not when all hell breaks loose. Persecution is coming to the church. It will embolden some and offend others. Now is the time to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. Now is the time to know who it is we are trusting in for our salvation.
