SUNDAY COMBINED SERVICE
TEXT: Ezekiel 7:12-, Mark 8:36-38, Hosea 14:1-7, 2 Corinthians 12:1
TOPIC: THE VISION FOR THE WHOLE MULTITUDE.
HYMN: 111 & 24.
There is no more time. The time is at hand. The time is short and the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior is at hand.
Evidences abound. The signs abound of the end (2 Timothy 3:1-5). No matter what you are into, that has taken you away from the reality, from the purpose whereby you were created. There is nothing that can save you ,except the Blood of Jesus. (Mark 8:36, Ecclesiastes 1:1-2).
No matter what you see with your eyes, you can touch with your hands, or how important it may be, all these things are VANITY. (1 Timothy 6:6), We brought nothing in the world and it is very certain that we are taking nothing out of this world. So don’t let any man deceive you.
So make haste and surrender your life to God. Everyone should withdraw himself or herself from all entanglement that will hinder them from making Heaven. (Revelation 22:12;7, Revelation 22:20). The Lord is coming very soon. Let’s not allow any entanglement to hinder us. (Matthew 6:33). Lets take God serious so that we don’t make mistakes that others have made. Lets make sure we break off all entanglement (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).
Remember we are the Chosen People. The royal priesthood. He has chosen us to deliver others out of the power of darkness (2 Timothy 2:1-4). so let us break off all entanglement.
POINTS TO CONSIDER
Point 1: READINESS FOR THE RAPTURE AND WARNING:
Every believer should know that the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ is at hand (Revelation 22:12, Revelation 1:3, 1 Corinthians 7:29, 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonian 4:13-17). Very shortly, this event will take place, in the twinkling of an eye, them that are ready shall be taken. We should prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ and ensure purity and holiness inside and outside because no one knows the hour. ( Matthew 25:1-10).
We should prepare and do away with unforgiveness, immorality, pride, selfishness, murmuring, blasphemy, for the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9). Keep away from sin because all unrighteousness is sin. ( Ephesians 5:1-5)
Note: Christ is coming and since you are not in the program of God, What do you then? (Amos 4:12). If you must enter Heaven, you must be holy. Prepare to meet your God oh Israel. ( Matthew 5:8, 1 Thessalonian 4:3, 1 Peter 1:15-16, Hebrew 12:14). We should get seriously involved or committed in soul winning and be an instrument in the hand of God. (Ezekiel 11:12, Joel 3:14) I want you to know that Christ is coming very soon therefore warn every one around you.
Point 2: OUR EXPECTED RESPONSE AND DANGER OF NEGLECT:
We must not allow anything to hinder us from preparing to meet our Lord Jesus Christ (Amos 4:12, Matthew 24:44). He will not announce to you the time He is coming to take us Home. (Ezekiel 7:12, 1 Corinthians 7:29-35, Mark 16:15, Matthew 4:19, 2 Timothy 4:1)
We should maintain Holiness and purity at all time ( Luke 14:17;23). We must preach to believers and unbelievers. Preach to everyone where ever they may be, strengthen their faith and focus them to Heaven. We must make sure we preach to everyone to be saved and prepare them for the coming of Jesus Christ. They should remember that once the rapture has taken place, their properties and everything they have will be no more. Now that we have grace, One should be saved, because immediately after the rapture, it will be difficult.
My prayer is that , as many of us who will obey this message of holiness and not compromise, shall not be left behind when Christ comes in Jesus name.
