Summary: If hero’s are they who save people from their calamities, how much more are they who get people saved from the wrath to come?
When we have an accident or a medical emergency we want emergency personnel to hurry because waiting could be fatal, and there is no way you can describe that feeling of urgency. Fear, impatience, anxiety, anger, all that is going through your mind is, hurry, please hurry.
There is no truer expression of love than that of a concerned mother about her child in the time of an emergency.
34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
He knew desolation was eminent.
I believe the Spirit is crying out to us to hurry because to wait could be fatal for too many souls.
I prayed for the Lord to lay upon my heart what He wanted for me to preach and it was as if He screamed in my ear “Hurry, Hurry,” there’s not much time left.
Hurry, preach my Word
2 Tim 4:2-4
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
(Preach that they might) receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Hurry, make personal preporations!
2 Cor 13:5
5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
2 Cor 13:5 NIV
5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you-unless, of course, you fail the test?
Hurry, tell them that there are hearts that they have not completely surrendered to me.
Some who still need deliverance.
Some who still have ill feelings toward others.
Some who have not kept their promises to me.
Some who have not yet experienced the change.
Going to church is not enough.
The five wise and foolish virgins tell us that some religious people are not going to make it.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father, which is in heaven.
Ps 119:59-60 NIV
59 I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes.
60 I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
2 Cor 7:1
7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Hurry, leave no one behind.
I think the church is asleep while souls are dying.
I think its time to awake out of our sleep because there is so much to do.
Souls are dying and at any price we should do what we can to save them.
