AWAKE, O SLEEPERS!
Read: 1 Thessalonians 5:1-24
Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly]; Do not quench (suppress or subdue) the [Holy] Spirit. (1 Thessalonians 5v17,19)
It is becoming more evident in our time that the kingdom of darkness is fighting tooth and nail to hijack the affairs of man by force. Leaked audios and videos of secret conversations/convocations of high ranking satanic agents that went viral during past global predicaments bear testimonial volumes. The various conspiracies, subtle and sinister attempts of depopulation, pandemic, economic sabotage, high level corruption and blood shed prevalent in almost all crimes are more than complementary justification for this. But, are these horrible worrying indicators not pointing to the end of the age, telling us that something is seriously amiss spiritually?
A Christian sister said she recently saw an angel of the Lord, with a long multi-layered whip, approaching intimidatingly from the North Pole toward the South. This may mean God’s own way of waking up His sleeping people as He had purposed and earlier promised. Unstable economy, bad government, unemployment, syncretism, explosion of occult practices, needless killings, and bloodsheds, travesty of justice, persistent persecution of the Church, general insecurity and faithlessness in God are all suggestive.
We may be able to reduce these plagues by heeding the great Apostles counsel to the Thessalonians, unceasing prayers and rekindling the fire of the spirit. Just as well as staying away from all appearances of evil. May the God of peace, Himself, truly preserve us to the end-spirit, soul and body, in Jesus name. Wake up from your sleep, brother/sister in the Lord! Behold, the Bridegroom has come! Come, Lord Jesus. Amen.
1. O you seed of sin, be gone from me, henceforth, in the name of Jesus.
2. Holy Spirit, rekindle the fire of spiritual sensitivity in me, in the name of Jesus.
3. O Lord God of Elijah, let the fire of faith in our homes, churches, altars and nations be rekindled from above, in Jesus name.
