Unsettling Words from God
Man shall not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. The words that Jesus speaks to us are not easy words, they are often alarming, unsettling, frightening. If we listen to the Holy Spirit we will always be on our toes. We will be tuned in and attentive to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
Many believers are settled in their ways because they have grown numb, they ignore the voice of the Holy Spirit, they have become self-content, lazy, blunt and they do not respond to the Holy spirit. They are disrespectful and thus they are in danger of hell fire. If we listen to the Holy Spirit He will keep us on our toes so that we can bear fruit for the kingdom of God. If you are lukewarm Jesus Christ will spew you out. If you are not ON FIRE for Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God you are in danger of hell fire. If you have become settled in your ways then it is time to ask Jesus to light a fire under you, to wake you up so that you can be worthy of Him.
If we are not eagerly working for the kingdom of God then we are tearing it down. If we are not bearing good fruit then we are taking up space and we are in danger of being cut down and burned.
The five foolish maidens did not have extra oil in their lamps and therefor when the bridegroom came they were left outside in the cold.
Wake up and get some extra oil. Be attentive to the Holy Spirit. Listen , OBEY and follow Jesus Christ every day and do not allow yourself to settle down . Be alert , watchful, listening, willing and eager to do the will of God and He will use you for His kingdom.
If we are not available and are not useful we will get cut off and burned. Wake up before it is too late.
May Jesus bless you.
