Focus: Matthew 13:43 – KJV
43. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
God is not slack concerning His promises like some will want to believe. His longsuffering towards man is just to give room for further reconciliation so that many more may gain entry into the Kingdom as purposed by Him. The Lord has created us and made us rulers over the things He created. Yes, we messed up and cast Him aside as if an unworthy Father. But for His love, He sent His only begotten Son to deliver us from the bondage of deception in which we entered into. As far as the Lord is concerned, He has done everything necessary to restore us. If any refuses to take that opportunity, it is never the fault of God that anyone decides to live in enmity with Him. It is a thing of choice. Those who live in enmity with Him are those who decide to continue living in iniquity which is disobedience unto Him despite all He has done. And since He is the Owner of the space we occupy, He has the right to revoke the Certificate of Occupancy anyone holds to it. Hence, when He comes with His Holy Angels, He is going to have the enemies uprooted from His belongings. Ironically, unlike those ejected from houses or quarters built with hands that can find another place to stay or squat, there is no place that God’s enemy will go to that does not belong to God. Since they refuse to live by the tenets of God, they cannot be allowed anywhere within His sphere. They are therefore to be gathered as stubs and thrown in the lake of fire. The Bible says in the place, there will be weeping wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Beloved, never join the multitude to do evil. Stay on the righteous course. It does not matter whether you have approval of men or not. As long as you have the approval of God, your Certificate of Occupancy will be preserved. Many who fail to heed the warning are bound to forfeit theirs. As for you, your righteousness will cause you to shine forth as the sun in the end if you stick to being righteous.
SOLUTION: Be righteous in all your doings. Stay away from iniquity which is a challenge to God’s authority and invitation to God for war.
The Lord by His mercy shall preserve us to the very end in Jesus name. We shall never be reckoned to be among the tares for the fire in the mighty name of Jesus. Please run from iniquity. Fire burns.
