Survival in The Last and Final Days!!
Acts 1:8 –“ You shall receive power, after that The Holy Spirit is come upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem ,and in all Judaea and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
How are you going to make it through? What will it take to make it in this world that is falling down around you every day? This world where there are wars, rumors of wars, earth quakes in diver’s places, tornados, floods, famines, pestilences, and love has grown cold. In this world where there is apostasy or people are falling away from God.
What is it going to take for you to hold on to God’s unchanging hand? Know that God will never leave you because He promised in Hebrew 13:5 that He will never leave you nor forsake you. So you see the problem is people are leaving God because the devil is telling them that all the praying that you are doing is not working. All that praising that you are doing is useless. How many of you know that the devil is a liar? Don’t let Satan trip you up.
You might say “I have it made. I feel so saved that I can go along and do nothing. I am safe. This is no time to be trying to make it on your own. This is not the time to waver. Satan is standing right beside you, ready to step in. He is waiting to catch you at your weakest moment. We all are weak if we don’t reach out and receive strength from our Heavenly Father, by reading The Word of God energized by precious Holy Spirit. So how do we continue to keep that strength? This is what we must do:
Be filled with The Holy Spirit
Commune with The Holy Spirit
Assemble with the saints of God
Read the Word of God
Praise God through your situation
Remember many are the afflictions of the righteous but God will deliver you from them all. Don’t set around with such assurance that you will not fall into divers temptations. Prepare yourself for the battle by:
Feeding on the Word of God
Putting on the Armor of God
Praying without ceasing
Keeping your focus on Jesus
Keeping in constant fellowship with The Holy Spirit.
You can’t take a chance on resting from this fellowship, not one day-not one minute. You must stay in constant fellowship or else you will be worn down. You will be trying to do things on your own without the leading of Precious Holy Spirit. You will not survive without the Trinity; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. You are not strong enough to make it on your own. The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy you. So how do you survive in these last and final days? You survive by allowing the Holy Spirit to take full control of your life, your every action, your every thought. Jesus said my sheep know my voice and a stranger they will not follow. Be careful who you are listening to.
Know that you know, that you know, who holds your tomorrow.
God Bless you
