Quit Waiting

Many believers are content to focus only on prophecy because they want to rely on some future date for the miraculous power from On High to come down and suddenly anoint them to minister.  In the meantime, people are suffering and dying around them on a daily basis.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 6:

1 We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain.

2 For He says:

​​​“In an acceptable time I have heard you,

​​And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Each day you and I should walk in the sensitivity of The Holy Spirit.  Now is the time to minister Love to those around us, not on some future date.  We don’t need a sign or wait until some feast day to minister life to those who are in desperate need.  Did Jesus wait until Sunday to heal the sick and preach the Gospel?  Did He say “I am conducting revivals only on Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles.”?  Does FATHER only answer prayers certain times of the year and leave us to our own devices during off days?  I can assure you that every one of these writings which are posted virtually every day are given to me by HIS SPIRIT else I would only write a few times each year.  I thank FATHER that HE is a now GOD, not a future GOD or a past GOD.  HE is “I AM”, not I WAS or I WILL BE.

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 12:

16 Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully.

17 And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’

18 So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.” ’

20 But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’

21 “So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

People often lift wealthy people up on a pedestal because they think they have some type of special “anointing” on them.  I have seen this sad reality many times over the years.  People want to be closely associated with a wealthy person as though some of their wealth will transfer to them  and impact their future ability to gain wealth.  Their words and actions simply feed the ego of the wealthy person as well as their own.  In the meantime, they pass up many opportunities to minister to those in need.  The above parable provides the reality of the temporary nature of wealth and the sadness connected to its hold on people.  The rich man was found lacking in his relationship with GOD.  The rich man was a short-term thinker and lacked true wisdom.  We must realize that as we fulfill our purpose and fellowship with FATHER, HE will bless the work of our hands and we will have sufficiency.  As Jesus said, “Watch out and guard yourselves against every form of greed; for not even when one has an overflowing abundance does his life consist of nor is it derived from his possessions.”

We don’t have to wait until we have achieved some milestone in our life in order to serve FATHER in some capacity.  We can and should be walking now according to HIS SPIRIT.  Now is the accepted time; now is the day of salvation!  Quit waiting.
