TAKING STOCK IN THESE LAST DAYS

Revelation 3:15-17, NIV
“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.”
The Lord isn’t fond of cultural or woke “Christianity” that seems to be so prevalent in our day. For a long time now, people have professed a form of Christianity but haven’t lived up to their testimony. At one time years ago it seemed somewhat fashionable to attend some sort of church or pretend to have a semblance of faith. Possibly somebody reading this grew up in a home like this. Or possibly your parents had you baptized as a baby but they never brought you back to church. Maybe they never prayed for you or read the Bible in the home but hey, they got you sprinkled. Possibly they thought that getting you wet could fix you. Still there are others who just didn’t want to go to church at all (except for the occasional, obligatory funeral) or to ever worship God. But to make grandma and grandpa happy; you had a pretty church wedding….but with no intention of ever coming back. It was a one time event for the photos and to pretend that you and God were cool.
However, it doesn’t have to be this way.
You and I need to take stock of our own lives, dear friends. Our Lord’s words in Revelation 3:15-17 are serious business because multitudes of people and entire apostate denominations are in danger of being spewed out of His mouth. We had better take Jesus’ warning to heart in these last of the last days and return to our First Love and to His Holy Word. Again, it’s time to repent, revive, and renew, America.
