I had this dream. We were all working in this trailer and it was just another day. Coworkers were talking about general things and the new guy was talking about things he’d buy, how much he’d drink, calculating his take home pay out loud for all of us to hear, just odd things were being said. Then someone came in the door and said, “hey guys do you see whats going on? Somethings going on with the forecast”. We went outside, it was about 11:00, and the sun was still sitting on the horizon, it hadn’t come up. I found it odd he used the word “forecast”. The sun kind of looked the way it looks when a thin cloud covers it, to where you can kind of look at it without hurting your eyes. It was just an eerie feeling that sank in as I heard a faint siren in the background. My boss and another guy walked off as the new guy and I stood looking from the front. I quickly started going into sharing the gospel and repentance with this guy, pointing at the sun and talking to him about at the end the stars are going to fall away. Do you believe?, I ask. It was crucial to me that he’d receive what I was telling him, and it looked as though he was. I felt the need to get back home to my family. My keys were inside so I went to open the front door of the office to go get them, but it was locked, I couldn’t get in. I wake up.

I can’t help but to wonder how close we are to that last day…Nobody knows… Matthew 24:36 puts it this way…”But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

All we can say is we are closer to that day than we were yesterday. And for many today is their last day. That last day could be very soon.

On that last day, who would be on your heart?

At this moment, that door isn’t locked. The door is open.

The pattern:

I let go,
God moves,
I get distracted,
I take over,
I let go,
God moves….

It’s time to break the pattern and keep it broken,
because without him I myself am so broken.

God, I am yours. You, God, are too big for my comfort boundaries. Comfort boundaries gotta go. His love is more important than my comfort.

To have God-given faith in Jesus, and know we are going to be with our Lord in Heaven someday is a beautiful truth. To know that the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords wants to dwell within us is wow-incredible and sometimes a partially accepted or even an overlooked truth…

In the scripture below, I personally believe Judas was prompted by God to ask this question below so that it can be made clear to us. This word spoken isn’t just for the Disciples of that time, but for you and me as followers of Christ.

John 14:18-21,23
18. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19. In a little while, the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you also will live.

20. On that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you. 21. Whoever has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me. The one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him.”

22. Judas (not Iscariot) asked Him, “Lord, why are You going to reveal Yourself to us and not to the world?”

23 Jesus replied, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make Our home with him.

We serve an Awesome God! May we believe in him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.

A Prayer:

Lord, may you make your home with us. The inner workings of me who isn’t more like you needs to go. Lord I need your help with this, we need your help. Cleanse me of all unrighteousness, I know there’s some stuff in there that shouldn’t be. For this temple to go about loving the way you love, only by you living within me and expressing that love through me can this be made possible. With you all things are possible. Perhaps it’s not about asking you for boldness, but praying you make your home with me and cast out all that doesn’t belong. In your name Jesus, fear and anything else not of you get out. I can do nothing without your help and guidance. Please take the wheel so that Your Glory may be seen by all those we encounter, may your love for all be shown. May your will be done. ~ Amen
