“I would rather tune up my instrument before the concert, than after the concert is over” ~ Martin Luther on spending time alone with God early in the morning
Our first priority, my first and only option, our First Love, is the first place I go every morning for daily bread and living water; all else is secondary. I choose to live in constant communion with God; apart from Christ we can do NOTHING.
Would you rather come to Christ Jesus and receive Christ in you, before the door shuts and the Holy Spirit leaves this world? The descriptions of the “great tribulation” in the bible alone would cause me to run to Jesus Who has already overcame this world, and promises IN HIM you will have peace. His Words are the Living Hope, Faith and Love that never fail. In Christ and Christ in you, His Spirit is given freely, as a River of oil, fire light and power, helping us overcome this world (1 John 2:12-28); conquer to be seated with Christ in heavenly places while walking in the Spirit on earth (Ephesians 2:1-6); never die, but live in union with Him now and is to come in His eternal life, eternities to eternities, glory to glory, grace upon grace.
The time is now, full time, to come out of “the haunt of demons” and into Christ. Jesus is the Word made flesh; if you abide in Christ and His Words abide in you, you can ask anything of God our Father and he will do it, giving all glory to God (John 15:1-7). I give all thanks and honor and praise and worship and majesty and glory and dominion and power and authority to God our Father and His Christ. Apart from Christ you can do nothing but be prey for “the roaming lion” who seeks to devour those who do not know our Lord Jesus Christ, thus do not know God our Father, by the Holy Spirit.
The article below that I am linking to may open a few eyes to what may possibly be going on in the darkness; a hidden agenda planned centuries ago, and warned about in the bible. History has repeated itself, circling into more and more darkness and deception and antichrist-like strategies to cause so much chaos and disorder that people will gladly give up their God-given freedom and rights to take a solution provided by satan himself.
“The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy, but I came that you may have life and life more abundant” ~Jesus the Christ of God, our Messiah, Lord and Savior, Healer, Deliverer, Redeemer, Son of God/Son of Man, Source of resurrection life and Spirit, righteousness, wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge of God and His glory, and reverential awe or fear of the Lord.
Use spiritual discernment. Ask God for all His spiritual gifts that include discerning spirits. Awaken in the light of Christ, stay awake, and make sure you are full of oil, Holy Spirit, at all times. Do not be like the five foolish virgins who wait to find oil, or those invited to the wedding banquet who make excuses or fail to put on the white garment Jesus can give you. Only Jesus can give you gold refined by fire, the white garment, and anointed eyes to see (Revelation 3:1-21).
