Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
4 “Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith.
The vision is yet for an appointed time. This is a very intriguing scripture because God says I am going to share something with you that right now the timing is not perfect, but it will be soon and I want you to be ready. We must understand that God is at work in, around and through our life. What we face, we face with Him. What we experience, we experience with the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. God says here in His Word that this vision will speak and not lie, though it tarries, WAIT FOR IT. Did it really say wait for it? Man that is some pretty serious stuff. We don't like to wait, we want it right now, we want it immediately. God says, when the timing is right I will take care of it perfectly. If we are to be "just," we must live by faith. That means we will always have to depend on God; however, we should always be working for God in the present. Now I want you to apply this scripture differently. Do you realize that where you are at this very moment is not by chance or accident? God's timing is perfect and He is always at work in and through your lives. We must understand this. We must embrace His timing, but we must ask ourselves why does God have me right here right now? What does He want from me? You see, you are because He is, and thus there is work to be done where you are because of who He is. With that said, preach the gospel, proclaim Jesus Christ as your Redeemer, as your Savior tell those around you what God has done in your life. Speak boldly your God Story. Take the difficult stand for Jesus. Walk mightily and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Feed the hungry. Clothe the sick. Teach those who are in need. Spread the gospel. Love those who are hurting. Speaking the Word of God to those who are proclaiming but profaning. Have courage to take a stand. RAK CHAZAK! God demands it, surrender now! Love Now! Worship Now! Live Now!
Call what is Holy, Holy, but if it is unholy let it be known. Do it lovingly and with the intent of bringing home the wayward son, but love them enough to tell them. Help them through their struggle. Do not compromise what you believe is the Truth. God is perfect, His timing is perfect and His love is perfect. How is your love? It is not perfect if it is not Christ loving through you. So let go of you and hold tightly to Jesus and DO HIS WORK. Realize that today is an appointed time in your life for you to do certain things for Jesus and DO THEM!
For my people of The Way Church I ask that you do something before Sunday, please read the book of Esther. It is 10 Chapters; however, chapter 10 is very short. So read Chapters 1-3 today, 4-6 Friday and 7-10 on Saturday. This will prepare you for Sunday's message.
You need this to be prepared for the message Sunday so lets all lock arms and agree to bring our worship to church Sunday. We should walk through the door prepared for God's Word and surrendered to His direction.
