Moments with Jesus
Time is short and the task is great
I am preparing to use you greatly in the days ahead to get my messages of truth to the world. The people of the world are languishing to hear messages that guide them and lead them to know me and my requirements for salvation. As the world deteriorates, people are fearing for their very lives. Nations are in commotion, kingdoms are tumbling, disasters are taking place in monumental proportions, and a great fear is coming upon the people of every country. This is because I am allowing things to happen as harbingers of my coming and the close of human probation just preceding that event. The sins of the people of the world has reached a high pass, and I am no longer going to permit Satan to continue his high-handed course of spreading his rebellion against me without retribution from my throne. Were it not for my continual protection of those who love and serve me, there would soon not be another person or animal left upon the face of the earth. And so it will be when in majesty and power I return to take my faithful people home to be with me for the ceaseless ages of eternity.
But between now and then, there will be a time of trouble such as never was and you must warn the people of what is coming quickly, even at the door. But most importantly you must tell them how to prepare themselves so that they will not be among the lost, who will be refuse upon the face of the earth. Oh, how many are going to be surprised at my coming who are now feeling secure in their salvation and believe themselves to be saved because of their good works, but have no personal connection with me at all. So I want you to tell them this before it is too late and while there is yet time for repentance unto salvation. I do not hold you responsible for the outcome, but I do hold you responsible to get the message of warning to every person who will listen. I did the same while I was on earth, for I saw the bloodbath that would take place in 70 AD when the Roman army destroyed the temple. That is why I wept over Jerusalem, and so I weep now over so many people who will be lost when they thought that they would be saved.
Now go to the activities of your day, but keep in mind the seriousness of the hour, and the importance of the task before you. Time is short, and the task is great, but by my grace you will reach every soul as you go forward. Just listen to my still small voice as I lead and direct you and you cannot fail to accomplish everything that I require of you. And when I come, you will hear my words to you, "Come, ye blessed of my Father, enter into the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." Lovingly, Jesus.
Relevant quotes from today's worship [6-17-19]:
"Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites.... Say to them, "This is what the Sovereign Lord says"... whether they listen or fail to listen.... Do not be afraid of them or their words.... You must speak my words to them whether they listen or fail to listen.... I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me." Eze. 2:3-7; 3:17.
"The heavenly messengers seen by Ezekiel, like a bright light going among the living creatures with the swiftness of lightning, represent the speed with which this work will finally go forward to completion." 4 BC 1161.
"The Lord has a people on the earth, who follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. He has His thousands who have not bowed the knee to Baal. Such will stand with him on Mount Zion. But they must stand on this earth, girded with the whole armor, ready to engage in the work of saving those who are ready to perish. Heavenly angels conduct this search, and spiritual activity is demanded of all who believe present truth, that they may join the angels in their work.
"We need not wait till we are translated to follow Christ. God's people may do this here below.
We shall follow the Lamb of God in the courts above only if we follow Him here. Following Him in heaven depends on our keeping His commandments now. We are not to follow Christ fitfully or capriciously, only when it is for our advantage.
"We must choose to follow Him. In daily life we must follow His example, as a flock trustfully follows its shepherd. We are to follow Him by suffering for His sake, saying, at every step, "Though he slay me, yet will I trust in Him." His life practice must be our life practice. And as we thus seek to be like Him, and to bring our wills into conformity to His will, we shall reveal Him." 7 BC 978.
