Stirring Up Your Pure Minds

Peter wrote by THE SPIRIT in his 2 epistle chapter 3:

1 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder),

2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior,

3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts,

4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,

6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.

7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Are you ready for a major societal change on the earth?  I know I am.  Nations continue on the precipice of war, economies are teetering toward collapse, and lawlessness is abounding.  However, FATHER is not slack in HIS judgment nor HIS longsuffering:

8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

It is critical for us to focus on our individual purposes rather than world events.  FATHER will administer change on this earth according to HIS timing, not ours.  HE continues to mature HIS remnant so at the appropriate time, the remnant will be lifted up as a worldwide standard and expose the sin and lawlessness which has crept into society.  HE will express HIS power and authority through those who have maintained pure hearts and minds in the midst of all this lawlessness.  Those who continue in HIS Word and implicitly trust It will be rewarded accordingly.  It is not how you start the race that counts, it is how you end it.

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Ephesians chapter 2:

10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

We must hold onto this revelation no matter what challenge comes our way.  Let us not be discouraged by what we see and hear but let us rest in the Truth that we are HIS workmanship and placed on this earth at this time to fulfill HIS Will.  When we truly grasp this particular verse, we will rest though chaos is all around us.  We will not be moved by world events or the rhetoric of those who are in power… temporarily.  FATHER will lift up men and women who HE determines to be vessels of honor to be a light unto the world.  The vessels will be fully empowered to express HIS Divine Intent moment by moment.  Signs and wonders will follow this ministry so that there will be no question left in anyone’s mind.  The harvest will truly be great and the focus of men will turn back to the Kingdom.  Heaven will come to earth and spread like wildfire.  The fiery Word will come forth from the mouths of the remnant and will burn away the wood, hay, and stubble of the doctrines of men.

Are you feeling a little discouraged?  If so, stir up your mind with HIS promises for HE is not slack concerning them!
