Now is the time to explore the riches of the treasures of the Lord in His Word. As the days seem to grow darker we have the more sure word of prophecy to encourage us. The Lord delights in revealing the future to us. He does not do this to satisfy our selfish curiosity, but so that we might be more expectant toward Him in our daily walk.
Your faith is the basis that God has given you to please Him. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him. For he that cometh to God (through prayer) must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek HIm.” (Hebrews 11:6)
When you pray, it must be in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was the greatest gift the Father could have given for you when He died on the cross for your sins, then rose again from the dead.
Prayerlessness is a great sin against God. There is no other way for God to hear you in prayer in these latter days than in that Name that is above all names: Jesus Christ.
We are living in a time that is just prior to the coming of the Lord to rapture His church to heaven. You and I have a great opportunity to make Jesus Christ known to many millions that are lost and in the grip of religions that do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God, or that deny that salvation is by faith alone, not in sacraments and rituals of church or religion.
“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For you have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God (by receiving Jesus Christ as your Savior, by faith), ye might receive the promise (eternal life, and to be able to go up with the Lord at the rapture). For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry (The Lord will not delay). Now the just shall live by faith, but if any man draw back (by not fully renouncing their sin and false religion) my soul shall have no pleasure in him. (Hebrews 10:33-38)
