If I Preach Not the Gospel

“For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!” – 1 Corinthians 9:16

In the previous verses Paul explains that it is scripturally correct for a minister of the gospel to make a living from that gospel. He points out how willing people are to pay for cornel things that bare no weight in eternity, therefore how much the more ought they see value in the labors of those who bring them spiritual things that are far more important.

An example of this would be paying for a meal at a restaurant with your family that took someone 30 minutes of labor to prepare but being unwilling to offer that same amount for a spiritual meal served to your family on Sunday morning that took someone a lifetime of labor to prepare and a week or more of seeking for the right word (or meal) needed to fulfill the spiritual needs of you and your family.

No it is not wrong to support those in ministry so that they can seek the Lord for an on time word, rather then spend their time waiting tables as the the book of Acts tells us. However, Paul continues in our opening passage to state something that I think is quite prudent in the economical climate that we are now in. He makes it clear that money can never be the motive for ministry or else you have no reward or glory for it in eternity. Furthermore, if you choose to forfeit the physical things do you receive a greater glory for it in eternity as it bares a better witness to the message being preached. Yet most important of all, does he make it very clear that even when there is no compensation or physical reward for it are you still required to preach it less you face a judgment before God for selfishness and disobedience.

Woe unto me if I preach not the gospel. Even if there is no income for it. Woe unto me if I preach not the gospel. Even if there is no earthly glory for it. Woe unto me if I preach not the gospel. Even if they come to kill me for it. Woe unto me if I preach not the gospel.

So my question to you today is, if the economy falls tomorrow and does not rise again will you keep preaching? If it is determined that Christians are to blame for the woes of the nations (as has been the false accusation throughout history) and believers are suddenly hated, will you keep preaching? If persecution rises up against us, even unto martyrdom, will you keep preaching. I pray so, Paul did.

I can say only for myself (even as Paul said) that I have preached my whole life without financial compensation. I have my whole Christian walk been despised and hated. So it is but a small step into what is coming and I pray that for that I may not stumble at it. Yet for many among the church today I pray the more intently because so few are ready.

Economies will fall and with them many ministries. I pray that God raise up among the least of these a new few who will preach with selfless fervency, not bridled by a love of currency, who will say as Paul did that day, “woe unto me if I preach not the Gospel.”

“Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” – Acts 20:26-28

Lament

“Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street.”

Lamentations 2:19

The book of lamentations is a record of the proper response to a nation facing judgment. It’s a serious thing and is worthy of weeping over in prayerful petitions for the youth who will face it. This is not unlike Ninevah’s response to the warnings of the prophet Jonah. They humbled themselves with prayer and fasting to show their faith and sincerity and cried out to God for mercy, understanding the sincerity of the situation facing their nation.

For Ninevah’s sincere show of repentance prior to judgment, God gladly relented, for He delights in mercy. Yet for Israel who ignored His warnings so mercifully given for generations, there was no repentance or lamentation until after the judgment had been enacted. Therefore was it not so easily retracted. Yet still was God present with the faithful through it and attentive unto their cries, while the prideful where stripped and humbled and their children received deliverance through their parents trial of affliction. These were a people who would not correct their children, so God corrected them that their children might learn trough them to walk in humility, selflessness, compassion, and obedience to the mercies of God.

They had been hard hearted and selfish, now would they be broken and desperate, learning empathy and the fruits of God’s spirit. Now would they lay down the idols and the vain glory for a quiet humble prayer to the Lord. Fasting and weeping in unseen places for the sake of the betterment of the next generation. No more building kingdoms for themselves, for they had done that and it all fell. Now a true work, sacrificial care for the lowly, weak, and meek of the earth, selfless prayers for those who hurt. Intimacy replaced ambition, attention replaced distraction, weeping replaced vain babbling, real time spend on their knees interacting with a very real, and powerful, and present King.

Redemption in judgment, lamentation in uncertainty, selflessness among the hurting. They found everything they ever needed, on their knees in their place of stripping. Judgment is never among God’s greatest desires, but it is among God’s greatest mercies.

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” – Psalms 46:1

“The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.” – Psalms 34:18

“Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.” – Lamentations 3:19-26

It’s Time! A Prophetic Word to America

The Mayflower Compact was the first legal governing contract or constitution of Plymouth in the newly discovered America, it was a covenant between God and men that America would be used for the furtherance of the Christian faith to all the world. Those early puritan founding fathers left everything, risking life and family to fulfill their part in the covenant to go not even knowing where they were going just like Abraham did, and God will keep His part in it. He will use the nation to spread the true Gospel of Jesus to all the World. He is a God who keeps His covenants.

November 21, 2020 was the 400th year Anniversary of the making and signing of this covenant.

When God wants to prepare a person for a mission, to come out in the power of the Holy Ghost, He requires 40 days with them. Like Moses, Elijah, and Jesus.

When He wanted to prepare a nation for a mission, to come out in the power of the Holy Ghost, He took 400 years. The Israelites were in Egypt 400 years, then Moses physically led them out with first a pressing, then in power! The Israelites were governed by judges for 400 years, then King David politically led them out, first in the pressing, then in power. Israel was in spiritual darkness 400 years, then Jesus spiritually led them out, first in the pressing then in power!

What happened for the children of Israel in Egypt wasn’t because of them, but because of the covenant that God made with Abraham before them.

“And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.” – Genesis 15:13-14

They had to go through a pressing, a Gethsemane. Through Plagues and opposition but it was all part of God’s plan of physical deliverance, and they came out of it with great physical gifts and abundance.

After 400 years of spiritual darkness in Israel Jesus shows up, and again there is a pressing, a Gethsemane. Opposition and crucifixion, but it was part of God’s plan of spiritual deliverance and they came out of it with great spiritual giftings and abundance.

America has always been a nation divided whether you saw it or not. It had Christian Puritan roots (making it a spiritual Israel) and dark Masonic roots (making it a spiritual Egypt). Two kingdoms at war within itself but now after 400 years they are being pulled apart. What seems like division I think is actually Deliverance. It might get a little shaky like it always does, but the true saints of God will come out of this spiritual Egypt and Israel into the true Kingdom of God not made with hands with both physical and spiritual blessings and giftings.

Yes we will have to go through a pressing, a Gethsemane, but it is all part of God’s plan of deliverance and the anointing that will flow out of the faithful who stand in faith through what is coming will cover the whole earth with God’s glory. Not because of us, but because He is a God who keeps His covenants to a thousand generations.

Do you know how long a thousand generations is?

4,000 years…

Not only is it now 400 years since God’s covenant with the Christians of America, it has also been 4000 years since His covenant with Abraham. God keeps His covenants, so nothing is going to stop the shaking that is coming. It’s simply time for things to happen. So get in the prayer closet and find your place in it, because you were born for such a time as this.

Not Moses, not Elijah, not Smith Wiggelsworrh, not all the greats of the past that we like to talk about. God chose you for now. It’s time to come out of Egypt and Isreal because the greatest outpouring the world has ever seen is coming and He chose you for it. Don’t miss it because you’re distracted by the plagues of Egypt like Pharaoh. Don’t miss it because you’re fighting to keep the old system alive like the pharisees. Follow God into whatever He leads us to next. He won’t send us where He isn’t with us.

It’s time for the whole world to be blessed by the true teachings of Jesus and He will do it if He has to press it out of you, because He made a covenant 400 and 4000 years ago and He will keep it. Are you willing to say, come what may, “Lord use me to do it”?

Ask God for the Impossible

“A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” – Matthew 12:35-37

James tells us that the tongue is an unruly thing that no man can tame. Yet when the Holy Ghost came on the day of Pentecost, the first place it manifested was in their tongues. That thing which no man could control, the Holy Spirit could, and did, and does; when we ask Him too.

The Holy Spirit is a gentlemen (gentleness being one of the fruits (or evidences) of the Holy Spirit). He will do nothing unless you ask Him too. You must welcome Him, you must humble yourself and ask of Him, you must acknowledge your need for deliverance, and you must express to Him your want of His indwelling life changing flesh crucifying presence before He will step in and take action. In this way do we know that it was Him that brought the change and not our own strength, will, or ability.

Therefore in every area of sanctification we must come to the place we’re we recognize the need for change, then we must humble ourselves and ask for the grace to do it. Then we must walk in the faith that it is done and not return to it. When honest mistakes happen, rebuke it, ask for forgiveness and continue to walk in victory over it. Keep pressing toward the mark of the high calling of Jesus Christ.

Victory is assured in the abiding. In that place of His presence, He comes and indwells us. The more He fills us, the more we feel Him living through us. His wisdom comes from us. His gentleness moves us. His revelation reassures us. His holiness radiates through us. His love drives us. His Spirit empowers us. More of Him and less of us is gained and crucified in His presence. No teaching can do for us what the teacher can, except the teaching be “run to Jesus.”

In that place will all the things that can’t be changed, be changed. The tongue is tamed, the heard and hurt heart is replaced, the lies erased, the truth embraced. A moment in His presence can heal a lifetime of negligence. The experience of being loved and excepted by the King of everything will pierce through every wall, desire, lie, wound, and bondage of the enemy; except pride. Because pride will keep you from asking for help, from acknowledging that you need it, and from receiving what has freely been given by the blood of Jesus.

Pride will keep you in your mind. Pride will keep you in the lies. Pride will keep you bound to sin. Pride will steal your purposes. Pride will speak through you much foolishness. Pride will keep you dead within. Pride will keep you fruitless, hopeless, helpless, and graceless because pride will keep you out of God’s presence. So for whatever impossible thing you need today, whatever change, whatever grace, run to Jesus and ask in faith.

“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” – James 4:6-10

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” – Matthew 7:7-8

“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:26

The Strength of Your Covering

My husband put forth great effort to building a chicken coup and rabbit yard for me. It was very strong and secure. The yard area was completely enclosed with wiring to protect from predators from all sides and tarps were placed over the top and wired down to provide shade.

Then a Hurricane came. The eye wall passed very close to us. The winds were horrific. So I prayed and praised God in the storm and He promised me that it would not touch anything on my property. Not one thing would be damaged. He would cause it to pass over and not touch His anointed or even our possessions as a testament to His ability to protect in any situation and a demonstration of His great mercy and faithfulness. What an amazing promise!

At morning’s first light, I went outside to see what had transpired during the night and true to God’s word, nothing was damaged at all. The winds had been strong enough to push my husbands large utility trailer sideways across the concrete several feet, but not one thing was damaged. Not even a single tarp from my chicken yard was torn! They weren’t even loose, they were perfectly positioned like the day we built it! How amazing! God can do anything!

However, I did not move in wisdom from this point on concerning this situation. In telling people about this great miracle of the tarps survival of 100+ mile an hour winds, I gave credit to my husbands strong construction. I mentioned how he always over does things, but how this time it came in handy!

So what happened? A week or so later a cold front came in, bringing with it a little rush of wind. Very miner in comparison to the hurricane that had done no damage. Yet those mild short lived winds tore the tarp right off my chicken yard and I knew instantly what it meant. God was showing me with all assurity that it did not withstand the hurricane because of the strength of the hand that built it, but because of the strength of the hand that covered it. I knew it in my heart but what I spoke had misrepresented what God alone had done. So He gave me a reminder that I might walk in better wisdom.

How often do we do this? I believe that the Lord allowed this to happen to show me something far larger then my chicken yard covering. Because I see this happening also, on a national level. God has moved miraculously to help America withstand the National hurricane of a storm that we have been facing lately. Yet far too often the credit is given to the strength of a man and what His hand has built, rather then to the strength of the hand that covered those men and what they built. So I think a storm will still come to show us where our help really came from.

Maybe it will be a light one in comparison to the one we have been protected from (just like my cold front), but yet enough to show us that no man made covering can withstand the onslaught of the enemy when he rages against us, no matter how strong, well conceived, or well constructed it may seem to be. Yet even the weakest of things can withstand the mighty hurricane winds of the enemy’s plans when God is their covering. Because when God is their covering, even death itself has to Passover them. Don’t ever forget that. Don’t ever fail to speak that. Don’t ever give anything else credit for what God alone has done or you’ll do something as foolish as saying that a tarp (tent/sukkot) is stronger then a hurricane and God will send a breeze to set you straight.

Thank you Lord for the wildernesses, the winters, and the storms that draw us into Your saving arms. Thank You for the clarity that they bring to the reality of how much we need our King. Of how much we are at Your great mercy. Of how deserving You are of praise and thanksgiving. Of how amazing are Your limitless abilities. Of how matchless is Your faithfulness. Of how real and personal is Your closeness. Of how immense is Your patients. And how enduring is Your willingness to teach us how to walk in holiness. Keep us on the straight and narrow path even if it takes chastisement to run us back to it when we get off track. Be it personal, corporate, or national. You love us enough to send us a cold front when we need it. To tear some stuff up to get our eyes back on Jesus. Let us be mature enough to receive it and to learn and grow from it in humility that we don’t have to repeat it.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” – Proverbs 9:10

The hurricane that our tarp covering survived came at the end of Sukkot, which means “tent”. It’s a time to remember when God allowed many plagues and hardships to come upon Egypt that His people might be freed from the bondage of it and be willing to follow Him out into a wilderness where they would dwell in tarp covered tents called booths. (Like my chicken yard) Yet in this time of uncertainty (like the storm) would they be protected and provided for from every onslaught of the enemy, every attack, every lack, every storm, nothing could harm them! He did it all miraculously, building their faith in His wisdom and faithfulness through dependency and necessity in this hard season of following and trusting His leading! Yet when they got to the promise land on the other side of this wilderness, He warns them. Don’t forget that it was Me that did this impossible thing, less you be tempted to take credit and I be forced to remove My hand of protection; and what I once blessed and protected come to perish because of your arrogance.

Church of Jesus Christ, do not be guilty of this. God has covered us from unimaginable hardship. He has protected us from plagues and from the attacks of the enemy. He has turn their curses into blessings. He has exposed the Hamans. He has confounded the Balaams. He has covered us with His mighty right hand while death itself passed over our land. Don’t make the grave mistake of giving credit for it to man, no matter how much God may have used him to build up less you upset the Lord and He pull back His hand and it all be torn down in an instant. He alone has done this. Be vigilant to speak that to others and to every generation after us, that we might continue to be blessed with great unmerited victory’s as we march on into the territories of our destinies! Or don’t, and loose your true covering in the face of the spiritual cold front that’s coming.

“When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end; And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.” – Deuteronomy 8:10-20

“Standing in the Way of Sinners”

“In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you [teaching] in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

Matthew 26:55

It is truly revealing when you really ponder on the Biblical fact that it was truly not the sinners Jesus sat with, nor the Gentiles who had received His words & wonders of His divine supremacy (of whom we might expect), but it was the religious ones, the “churched” ones, the teachers, the leaders, and the the elders of His day that were the culprits of crucifixion.

The church in many ways today, are like that of the temple’s congregants then, who crucify Jesus by the purposeful and intentional stifling of the moves of His Spirit. When God wants to move, He doesn’t force Himself. He comes to those who actually want and believe Him. (See Matthew 13:58)

Sadly because of this, the people in large part will miss what “could have been” when they go to feed spiritually in churches of empty “cupboards.” They themselves “stand in the way of sinners” becoming the very stumbling block Jesus warned about instead of being the launch-pad for His will and ways.

Why in the world and how can this happen?! This is the church we are talking about, right? Well, I’ve been in ministry my whole life, currently in ministry with my wife of whom the same to be said of her, and from our experience, sadly, pastors in many ways today have become drunk with power and notoriety that they end up quenching any opportunity for the Holy Spirit to truly move: in themselves or in others (especially of little to minimal ‘societally-perceived’ significance) in the body of Christ.

“For he [Pilate] knew that for envy they had delivered him.”

Matthew 27:18

A lustful envy in the church is a cancer of sorts that is deeply rooted in pride. It says, “I deserve this” or “It should be me” We find ourselves pulling others down as the momentum & leverage to climb to the “top.” This unfortunately is undoubtedly a backsliding of sorts as it depicts the church in this category. For you see, the crucifixion itself is due to our sin, and when we fall away in this manner, we are literally as was the religious ones of Jesus’ day, crucifying Him all over again.

“If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify [to themselves] the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.”

Hebrews 6:6

The key of notation in Hebrews 6:6 is that we must repent after having backslid. The blood is shed, no less thanks to our rebellion, but we must receive of it in the same way we received of it when we first were born again: in humility and repentance.

The conclusion of the opening passage shows that when Christ was taken away by the very leaders that should’ve supported and celebrated Him, a devastating consequence ensued:

“…Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.”

Matthew 26:56

In conclusion, no doubt there is mercy for the humble and repentant, but there is only judgment for those who remain in their envy & pride. Today we must reflect on where each of us are and see if we are standing in the way of His Spirit to move. It’s not about us, me, or you; it’s about Jesus, for His glory! That all might come and find rest, healing, and restoration! We are His body, jointly fit together! In Jesus’ Name!

A Day of Prayer

Today we remember the 19th anniversary of 9-11. We remember all the lives lost and pray for peace,comfort, and God’s blessing on their families.

Today is also the 19th anniversary of when God remove the hedge of protection off of America. America’s sins have increased to the point of judgment coming on the land. We see that has increased since that day 19 years ago. Since the start of the year 2020, we have seen a massive up swing in calamities and destruction across this nation. Massive fires, hurricanes, lawlessness, lying, murder, disregard for life, sexual immorality on all levels, selfishness, disease could go on and on.

This judgment will only continue to increase. The people of the nation need to wake up and see that,

Joe Biden will not fix the problem.
Donald Trump will not fix the problem.
The Democrats or Republicans will not fix the problem. Socialism/Communism will not fix the problem.

This nation needs a heart transplant.
This nations needs to turn back to God in a real way and not with schemes to just fix the current situation.

If you are born again, please take time today humble yourself before God, repent, and pray like you never have. Recommit to Him and His ways. He is drawing us and wants us closer to Himself.

If you are not born again, then today is your day. Today is the day of salvation. Call out to God, repent of your sins and trust in Jesus.

He is the only way, the only truth, and the only life.

Even in this judgment we are in and the greater judgment that is near, there is mercy in the judgment.

“If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attend unto the prayer that is made in this place.” -2 Chronicles 7:13-15

Jesus is the only hope for this nations and as long as you have breath then there is opportunity to turn to Him.

God bless you all on this day of remembrance.

Wait for Your Reward

“Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered. Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.” – Malachi 3:14-18

God is so merciful and patient, because that it is not His will that any should parish but that all might come to salvation. He delights in mercy and give space for repentance so that it may seem at times that He is turning a blind eye to sin, pride, selfishness, and rebellion. Yet I assure you that no hidden thing escapes Him. He see all and knows the heart of both the wicked and the righteous.

The root of all open sin, selfishness, vain glory, and rebellion is pride. The pride that tells the sinner that God does not see, does not care, and will not eventually be forced to judge them for their sin. The pride that convinces them that their own logic, will, plan, and ideas of what ought to be right is more beneficial to them then to trust in God’s wisdom and revelation. It’s pride that drives the selfishness that says, I’ll do what’s easy and pleases my flesh and not expect to eventually pay a price for it. Yet the humble fear God and His great wisdom enough to walk in His righteousness even when it doesn’t make since, and eventually they will reap the rewards of it.

This is the theme of today’s passage. The prideful and selfish are not willing to pay the price to walk in righteousness, they would rather walk in the rewards of wickedness for a season and pay the price of Judgment in the end. All the while, those who fear the Lord must encourage each other, because though they pay a price to walk in humble obedience in the temporary, they receive their rewards in eternity.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” – Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

However, not only in eternity. Though we be tried and purified in the furnace of affliction to the point that the world might even question rather or not God is truly with us for a season, still will He reveal a great weight of Glory unto His Name and our validation in the revealing, once that He has done His great work of perfecting. He does a perfect and complete work so trust in His timing and in His wisdom. Don’t be tempted to reveal yourself before He is finished. Don’t exult yourself. Don’t be tempted to indulge in the error of the wicked. Fear God and keep His commandments. It will be worth it. Keep believing. He will reveal and reward His faithful ones in their proper season.

He’s looking for fruitfulness. Not flaunting, flattering, faker self elevating, seekers of attention.. He wants fruitfulness and fruits are only produced in their proper season. Trust Him and wait patiently for it. He knows what He is doing.

“Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked; For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out. My son, fear thou the Lord and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?” – Proverbs 24:19-22

“Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.” – Malachi 3:16-18
