Good morning my heavenly Father! I come to You in Jesus’ name to pray. Dear God! All glory is Yours! How great You are! What message do You want to give? I’ll pray it! Lord, I pray Your revealing of Your glory would persuade sinners to repent!
Jesus said, “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.” (Luke 15:4-7) How great it is when one lost sheep is found!
Hallelujah! There will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents! When one lost sheep returns to the fold, rejoice! Lord, I pray that we would stop and study this truth. Since You said it, it is important for us to understand it. Since You said it, it is important for us to preach it! The fact is this; the bible is absolutely true! Everything in Scripture is for our spiritual edification. And Scripture gives us many warnings!
Jesus said, “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.” (Matthew 24:21-22) By how long, dear Lord? How long will these days be shortened? This is the second three and a half years of the tribulation! The terror of the anti-Christ will end! And Your time, dear Lord, is always perfect! The elect are they who will be redeemed during the tribulation, for the church has already been raptured!
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” (Matthew 24:29-31)
Be warned, oh sinners of this world! For many truths were spoken by my Lord Jesus! Another truth is this, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” (Matthew 24:35) Yes, the entire universe will shake and pass away, but Your words will never pass away. Never!
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your Word is true! You always keep Your promises. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9) One lost sheep is found! Rejoice! Bless You, my Lord this day, for all You do. Your kingdom come; Your will be done! In Jesus’ precious name I pray, amen!
