Remember, believe is a verb. A verb requires action. Jesus tells us that to be His disciple, you must give up your life and follow Him. That is action; to lay down your life to do the will of the Father.
Jesus tells us love is above everything. Having love is more powerful than faith, courage, strength, and sacrifice. Jesus also tells us the greatest love is to lay down your life for your neighbor or your brother. The love of God is eternal life, so we must lay down our lives to reach the lost, so they will have eternal life.
We were not put on this earth to build our own kingdoms and get glory for ourselves. We were put on this earth to Love God with all our lives, to love our neighbors as ourselves and to bring glory to God. So, in order to do what we were put on this earth to do and to receive eternal life for ourselves, we must do the works God requires; to believe in the one He sent. To believe requires works. You cannot believe with your mouth, you can only believe with your actions, (our heart). For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Our lives mean nothing if we let our neighbors die without telling them the truth. If you offend people for telling them the truth, then you have followed Jesus, because Jesus offended everyone He spoke the truth to. Some were convicted by being offended and turned from their sin, others became bitter by being offended and hardened their hearts.
Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults; whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse.
Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;
rebuke the wise and they will love you.
Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;
teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.
The truth (JESUS) will set you free if you receive the Truth (JESUS). In order to receive Him and be set free, you must believe which is a verb; action. To believe requires you to love your neighbor as yourself and love God with all your life.
The lost are crying out to God to send them someone to show them the way, just like the Israelites cried out to God and He sent them Moses. It Is Time Jesus is calling His disciples to rise up and do His will. If God has not given you a vision to gather in the lost, get on board with those who have been given a vision to gather in the lost. Moses was the only one with the vision. Everybody else had to trust and follow Moses. God has given several a vision for these last days for many to follow and help bring it to pass so the lost will be reached.
“The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’
“‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’
23 “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full. 24 I tell you, not one of those who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’”
IT IS TIME
