For seven days I will be posting that which I believe God is saying in this time. Through prayer God has revealed several things in which I will share. The other day I was watching Billy Graham on TBN and I remembered when I was a child and his crusades would come on primetime television. Then I thought about how much the world has changed and how many fight against the very thought of the gospel of Jesus Christ being spread. Our nation which stood on, “In God we trust”, have seemed to move far away from God. We as a nation are in serious trouble as many have seemed to forgotten about God and followed their own ways. As with the Children of Israel whom God delivered out of Egypt would follow God one day and then turn away from him the next. By doing so they would eventually bring judgment on themselves. God is calling those who have turned from him to return. Now is not the time to straddle between the fence. You are either on the Lord’s side or not. You will have to choose which side you are on. We are approaching the holy days, the appointed feasts and times of God. We are approaching the end of the Shemitah (Sept 13), approaching the year of jubilee, the Jewish new year (Sept 14), day of atonement (Sept 23), the last blood moon (Sept 27) that is apart of the tetrad that fell on feast days. God is and has been speaking. God wants the heart. In 2 Chronicles 7:12-14 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon by night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a house of sacrifice. When I shut up heaven and there is no rain or command the locust to devour the land or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and TURN from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
And I said after she had done all these things return to me but she did not return (Jeremiah 3:7). Have you received the call to return to God? Have you thought that you were too far out there that you could not return? This is far from the truth. You are never too far away that you can’t return to the arms of God. In fact he calls us daily, but do we hear the call? Do we hear and ignore? There is nothing we can do that can separate us from the love of God. His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23). So when we wake up, we are waking up in new mercies. God is calling for the hearts of his children to be turned toward him. Will you answer the call?
