Summary: Look around and see its almost time.
DON, T YOU THINK IT,S TIME TO WAKE UP
Eph.5: 14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
If the real Christians would stop, long enough and look deep enough, and search hard enough, the trouble could be found, fixed and forgiven and fully furnished for the task ahead. Amen
(1) Awake to your sacred responsibility
Gal,5: 1Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
Freedom of speech and press
Faith in Christ, Country, Church
Family safe and secure
(2) Arise ye sluggard and repent
Rev.2: 4Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Because of a cold heart
Because of a critical spirit
Because of a careless life
(3) Assurance of his salvation received
John 1: 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Because a cold heart produces doubt
Critical spirit produces double talk
Careless living produces disobedience
(4) Abiding in the scriptures revelation
1st Peter 1:
1Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
2As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
3If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
The light of the world
The life in the word
Your love for his word
(5)Aware of his soon return
Matt.24: 44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh
Looking at all times for his return
Living like you are looking
Longing for this grand occasion
(6)Awaiting the saints rapture
Titus 2: 11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Drawing near all the time
Dawning of a new day approaching
Disappearing of all believers
(7) Amazed at Savior’s reward
Rev.22: 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Far beyond our expectation
Faith reaches its final and fullest fruition
Follow his call, receive him now
