First of all greetings in the most High Name of our Lord Jesus!
Second, I plead the Blood of our risen Savior over the entire Body of Christ all over this world.
We pray for those outside of covenant that God will forgive this worlds rejection of His Love and warnings
that they will awaken, and repent for the Kingdom of God has come near us all.
I'd like to share this passage of scripture:
Psalm 91 English Standard Version (ESV)
My Refuge and My Fortress
91 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say[a] to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge[b]—
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Def. Few= a small number of. not many, hardly any. In a sentence-"may I ask a few questions?"
Luke 13:23-28,= 23 And someone said to him, “Lord, will those who are saved be few?” And he said to them, 24 “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 When once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us,’ then he will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from.’ 26 Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’ 27 But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!’ 28 In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but you yourselves cast out.
Our Lord could have answered generically, Instead, He answered directly to the person asking the question pretty much saying " will you be saved?"
Remember Jesus is responding to religious Jews who do already believe in the One True God. They were not agnostics or polytheists. They believed in the Hebrew Scriptures and lived in basic accordance with them. In giving His answer, Jesus was not addressing a pagan audience. He was talking to the “religious” crowd, most of whom assumed that they would go to heaven because they were good Jews. And He gives us church folks some important and practical lessons on the subject of salvation:
In this time in our lives with uncertainty all around us, not sure what tomorrow will bring.
Who can we really trust? Government, Scientist, Ourselves, Or God and His word? Our government wants to inject Trillions into Industry, airlines, auto, cruise, and only a few thousand dollars into the common everyday people " Living Souls" that make up those industries, bear children to fill the vacancies left by the last generation that props up and is the real engine of our country.
Jesus said we must "STRIVE" make great efforts to achieve or struggle and fight to obtain something; the Gate is strait "NARROW" not everyone is going to fit, it's not a given, it's going to require real effort in earnest. times like these World wide Pandemics Jesus told us about 2000 years ago he told us this and other things would happen to alert the church he's coming back very soon, Also he's shaking the Pagan, Materialistic, Non believing world trying to awaken them saying look, look to me all you ends of the world and be saved.
He's screaming at us, look" I LOVE YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE BELIEVE IN ME, I AM THE LORD AND BESIDE ME THEIR IS NO SAVIOR" I AM your healer if you keep my word i will put division between you and the world, I am your provider remember the widow woman in Zarephath with the handful of meal in a barrel 1 Kings 17:12-24
Many shall seek to enter in and shall not be able, why will these not be able , the answer is in next verse: and when once the Master has risen up and has shut the door... Here it sure seems that He,Jesus is making reference to a time limit, till the DOOR is SHUT! Saints there is only so many hours in a day, we need to get our affairs in order, so that we can carry out the will of our God the Ministry of Reconciliation, being LIGHT, being SALT, being a WITNESS for the KINGDOM.
No man knows the hour when we'll hear BEHOLD the BRIDE GROOM COMETH, I can with certainty tell you that our redemption is much closer than when we first believed. Jesus is giving us a fire drill so as to understand whats happening and whats important and what we should do,
Look this is a soft warning before real Judgement comes, He a good God He always warns Saved and Lost before something happens. He told Israel that one stone would not be left one upon another before their destruction in 70 ad. He's given a taste of what he can do to the greatest of countries in a short span of time, and when we come out of this trial of our faith it will not be because of the President, our Government, Science it will be what it ha s always been, the GOODNESS, MERCY, GRACE OF A LOVING AND PATIENT GOD.
Lets take serious inventory while this moment is fresh in our minds and lives, we don't want to be found OUTSIDE KNOCKING, open to us Lord we have eaten and drank at your table ;don't you remember me, you even taught me gave me revelations.
I don't want to hear depart from me I never knew you:because I didn't believe on Him as the" SCRIPTURE SAITH" I wanted to tweek the parts I was not comfortable with or were just not convenient. I had some of my own Ideas of how to help YOU out LORD, I didn't follow the recipe, I thought I could Improve Your Plan.
I'm sorry Jesus:please forgive me I don't want to find myself on the outside looking in; In case the next drill is the real thing.
LETS PRAY CHURCH, lets re-orient ourselves and family, re-prioritize whats really important, GOD,GODS WORD, GODS PEOPLE, THOSE THAT KNOW NOT GOD and the "GOOD NEWS"That He has gone to prepare a place for us and He's coming back! @4:39 pm
