“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came and destroyed them all. “And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business—eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building— until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. Yes, it will be ‘business as usual’ right up to the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”
Luke 17:26-30 NLT
Just like in the days of Noah, so it will be before the Son of Man is revealed.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being My priest.
Hosea 4:6 MEV
The Lord wants to release His wisdom and knowledge in this time but many don’t even know Him. And because we don’t truly know Him we open the door to the enemy.
“My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me.
Hosea 4:6 NLT
We as believers are so consumed with ourselves and our busyness that we have been blinded. We are blinded because we don’t have a relationship with our Father.
And because we don’t have that relationship we’ve allowed the enemy to use jealousy, strife, offense, arrogance, pride and, most of all, ignorance and this is within the body of Christ, the church!!
The devil doesn’t mind us getting together, going to church and he doesn’t care how loud we sing; he just doesn’t want us to turn that excitement into unified prayer. If the church was unified we could tear down the Kingdom of darkness!!
In this season, prayer is essential for advancing the kingdom. So when we come together (because we can’t do it on our own) we push back the gates of hell. We pull down strongholds. When we come together we shift the spiritual atmosphere.
It’s time for the church to arise! To come together in unity not to be divided because of pity issues such as politics, vaccines and offense!! We have work to do. We have priestly work but if we reject His knowledge he will reject us as His priest.
Don’t be consumed with business as usual; be concerned with the things of God. Repent, spend time reading His word and be in prayer.
Prayer and intercession is the key to prepare His church for what’s to come so we won’t to be caught off guard.
So get wisdom and understanding while you can. Listen to His voice, don’t ignore Him. He is calling you.
“Come and listen to my counsel. I’ll share my heart with you and make you wise. “I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come. I reached out to you, but you paid no attention. You ignored my advice and rejected the correction I offered. So I will laugh when you are in trouble! I will mock you when disaster overtakes you— when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster engulfs you like a cyclone, and anguish and distress overwhelm you. “When they cry for help, I will not answer. Though they anxiously search for me, they will not find me. For they hated knowledge and chose not to fear the Lord. They rejected my advice and paid no attention when I corrected them. Therefore, they must eat the bitter fruit of living their own way, choking on their own schemes. For simpletons turn away from me—to death. Fools are destroyed by their own complacency. But all who listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.””
Proverbs 1:23-33 NLT
This is a warning to turn to our Father God and hear His voice today, repent, accept His correction and move forward as the army He is calling us to be.
