Turn and Return To The Lord

repentanceGod is asking NOW, that those who speak his son’s name from their lips, would be LIKE CHRIST….for scripture says of the true Christian, “By their fruits, you shall know them.” There has been a gradual “turning away” from Christ and the truth of the Word of God, even by those who “say” they are Christians, and the Spirit of God would like to have eyes opened to just how much we all have become desensitized and unaware of this shift “away” from God.

The Spirit of God inspired A SONG that I wrote and recorded that really illuminates this condition of His Church…and Father is asking us to be “reconciled” back to Him by a turning or returning back to Christ, and a following of His Ways in our everyday living.

Please, no matter who you are, after reading this blog, PLEASE TAKE A LISTEN… for this song is meant to shed light on hidden places of the heart that God sees, even though others may not.  Light dispels the darkness, so there need be no apprehension to listen through the song…rather, a feeling of being set free will come as you yield your heart to the Spirit of God. He gives this promise, “Draw nigh to God, and He Will draw near to you.”

THESE TWO VERSES from the Word of God are to bring YOU encouragement that the Lord stands ready to receive your repentance, and to abundantly pardon that which the Spirit may speak with you about.

“Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and let him return unto the Lord and HE WILL HAVE MERCY upon him; and TO OUR GOD, for HE WILL abundantly pardon.”  Isaiah 55:6-7

and

“For He says, ‘In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you.’ Behold, NOW  is the accepted time; behold, now IS the day of salvation.”  II Cor 6:2

Take a listen to this song and hear its message:

To repent means “to turn” … we turn away from revealed sin, and turn toward the Lord… He then empowers us to overcome. It is “A PROCESS”… so be humble and yet give your repentance 100%. Keep throwing your sin back on the altar of grace until you are “FREE” from it, for Christ did not only FORGIVE your sin at the cross…he FREED you FROM SIN at the cross. You have only to appropriate this power in your life.  How?  By totally abandoning yourself to Jesus. The Spirit of God is then given to lead and guide your life.

Why is this message important RIGHT NOW, TODAY? Because you have “A KINGDOM” available to you… to live in and walk in TODAY: The Kingdom of God.  Then, no matter what happens to “your country”, be it the USA or another country of the world, there need be NO FEAR, for your citizenship is in the Kingdom of God. God will soon send Christ for His Church, which is made up of believers everywhere, and the true believers will no longer be here. And when later we return with Christ, we will have HIM “reigning supreme over us all”! So, what better future and hope can there be than that? (smile) The thing is, God is to be reigning in all of “us, His Kids” RIGHT NOW, if we will allow him to have that authority in our lives. We each have a FREE WILL to choose to live for Christ. It is time for “The Church” to exercise its free will to radiate His Glory through our obedience corporately too, as God steers people here and there into their destinies and true purpose.

TURN — OR RETURN — TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.  He is the ONLY WAY to the Father (GOD). You will be left behind if you are not “ABIDING IN” CHRIST. Plain and Simple.  He doesn’t take people who have divorced him, even if once married to him, to share His Life. Liken it to a normal marriage…Have you abandoned Him? Have you gone away from your first love? Or are you living as ONE FLESH? Or are you just in a house together, pretending to others that you love Him? or are you in “Close Intimacy? (Only you can answer…but “do ask yourself”…and don’t assume all is well.) Truly…If it is not likened to a marriage, then why does Scripture use the word adulterers and adulteresses, to describe those who have chosen the World and its ruler Satan over Christ, the lover of their soul? Who gave everything to be wed to His Bride, the church…

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

IT IS TIME TO TURN, OR RETURN TO THE LORD, IF YOU ONCE KNEW GREATER INTIMACY WITH HIM. HE IS READY TO TAKE YOU IN HIS ARMS AND ABUNDANTLY PARDON…HELP YOU TO OVERCOME SIN… AND GIVE YOU JOY, PEACE, AND RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHICH IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Romans 14:16-18 Therefore do not let what is for you a good thing be spoken of as evil; for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. For he who in this way serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men.

 

To Respond is simple.

Accept Christ Jesus, asking Him to take over the Lordship of your life, and receiving the salvation His Blood shed on the cross to purchase for you. The Spirit of God will come live within your life, and speak to your spirit, which is now reborn. Heaven is your destiny if Jesus abides with you now.

OR return to Him…and His Word…if you had once made him your Savior but never have quite given Lordship of your life to him.  “Submit to God, Resist the Devil, and He will Flee from You.”  Don’t GIVE UP… The Lord will NEVER give up on you, but TIME IS SHORT and the window is closing. TODAY IS THE TIME. Grace is giving you this message, for one of the greatest gifts of grace that God has given man is the ABILITY TO REPENT and be met with open loving arms of the Savior.

Tomorrow may be too late…. So please heed whatever is going on in your spirit man right now…for the Spirit of God communicates within to your spirit. And as I release this blog, I am praying for YOU to respond to make Christ “your” ruler, whether you’re just coming to know Jesus or have walked as a Christian all your life.

I am going to be responding myself… for the Lord is always and forever going to be encouraging me to draw closer and become more attune to His Voice, more aware of His Word, and more obedient to The Truth. The Truth will set us all free. Hallelujah! We can all be thankful that He loves us SO MUCH!

In Closing, Please share this blog with others, so that God can speak to whomever He Wills. The more people who will hear and respond, the more God will be able to change lives.
