SATURDAY BIBLE STUDY MESSAGE
TEXT: Matthew 11:28, Luke 14:17-23, John 7:37
TOPIC: The Final Invitation
Everyone should know that we are in the very last days for the rapture of the saints, and many signs are bound to happen to that effect. Many prophecies of the last days are bound to prove the prophecy of His coming(Matthew 24:3-8)(Matthew 24:12).
No one should walk in isolation to this fact knowing fully the need for our readiness. We must know these things and be ready( Matthew 24:44).
Everyone is required to be on duty as a representative of our Lord Jesus Christ(2nd Corinthians 5:20)(Matthew 4:23-24). Also, we all know why He called us and what He commissioned us to do(Matthew 4:19)(Mark 16:15)( Luke 14:21).
POINT 1: THE REASONS, EXAMPLES AND COMMISSIONED
When we consider the present situation in this end time, we all can agree that there is no more time (2nd Timothy 3:1-5)(Matthew 24:7)(Matthew 24:12-14)( Matthew 24:33-44).
So all these prophecies are being fulfilled and the rapture is at hand( Mark 1:14-15). Everyone should know that there is no more time. It is injury time and we should know that it’s time to handle the things of this world with a light hand (1st Corinthians 7:29). We should also take the gospel to every creature knowing well the shortness of time(Matthew 24:14).
Let’s ensure that we are standing on the holy ground(Matthew 24:15)( John 7:37). We should invite all to come with all seriousness(Mark 16:15)(Luke 14:23)( Revelations 22:17)(Mark 1:35-36).
In the last days, let us follow His foot steps and do the final invitation.
POINT 2: OUR EXPECTED RESPONSE AND THE EFFECT.
Everyone must take up to our responsibility and begin to do them because there is no more time(1st Samuel 21:8). If the trumpet should sound, many will not be saved and it will be too late to do the Father's business. It is urgent now to do His work( 2nd Corinthians 6:2). We must not misuse this time but we must take advantage of every moment to do our Father's business of soul winning.
We should follow Jesus example(Luke 2:48-49)( John 4:30)(John 5:17)(Matthew 5:17)( Matthew 24:33-34).
The coming of Jesus is very near. Everyone should wake up before it will be too late( John 7:37-38). We must do the final invitation; Let’s invite them to be saved( Mark 16:15)( Luke 14: 23).
We should work like Jesus who showed great commitment to the Father’s work( Matthew 9:35)(Matthew 4:25)(Matthew 5:1)(Matthew 8:1).
So as we do His will, we shall record great success and multitudes shall follow(Acts 2:40-41)(2nd Timothy 4:6-8).
As we go on to do this final invitation, we must also take heed to ourselves and ensure righteousness on every side( Revelations 22:17).
Let us go out and do the final invitation before it is too late and as we do so, we shall receive a crown in Heaven.
For Sinners and Backsliders, confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and personal Saviour (Romans 3:23)( 1 John 3: 8 & 9)( 1 John 5: 17a)(Isaiah 59: 1).
Sin is dangerous. It is destructive and yet almost the whole world has gone into sin.
Unbelief is sin. Selfishness is sin; Covetousness is sin, Insincerity is sin; backbiting, murmuring, speaking evil of others, these are terrible sin.
Going to native doctors, stealing from Government, stealing from companies and individuals, that is sin.
If you are among those people that are involved in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion; that is terrible wickedness.
Fighting and quarreling, smoking and drunkenness; all these are evil. Ask for the mercy of God.
Are you into polygamous marriage or you have sent away your wife or you moved away from your husband? that is sin.
Are you a woman dressing like a man or a man dressing like a woman, all that is sin.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
