Look I Am Coming Quickly!



LOOK I AM COMING QUICKLY –WORSHIP GOD
Revelation 22:1-21, (6-17,20),” Then he said to me,, These words are faithful and true, and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His angel to show His servants what must quickly take place, Look, I am coming quickly! Blessed is the one who keeps the prophetic words of this book. “Worship God”, He also said to me, Don't seal the prophetic words of this book, because the time is near, let the unrighteous go on in unrighteousness, let the filthy go on being made filthy; let the righteous go on in righteousness; and let the holy go on being made holy. Look, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me to repay each person according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral. The murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying, I, Jesus, have sent My angel to attest these things to you for the churches, I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star. Both the Spirit and the bride say. “Come!” let him who hears say, “Come!” and the one who is thirsty should come. Whoever desires should take the living water as a gift. He who testifies about these things says, Surely, I am coming quickly. Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!”
Jesus says for anyone who hears to come, and anyone who is  thirsty to come. The Spirit says come and the bride says come. Its time all to come in. God gives us the option. Those who are outside will remain outside. Then three times, Jesus says, I come quickly, be ready, I come quickly. Beloved, this year of our Lord 2016 is a year of action. Jesus will come quickly. Will we be ready? I pray so.

Experience the Joy of Helping the Man of God by Kevan Bartlett

If you want to be an obedient Christian, you have one of two choices: be the pastor of a Bible-preaching, Bible practicing church, or help someone who is. According to the Word of God, you need your pastor and he needs you! Here are some ways that you can be a tremendous help and blessing to your pastor.

1. Pray for Him and His family. Praying for your pastor daily will help him, and it will keep you tender toward his leadership. James 5:16, “ The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

2. Show up for the Preaching of God's Word. Pastors are commanded to feed the flock. However, they are not commanded to make “home delivery” of the feed. Your pastor cannot feed you if you do not show up for the meal.

3. Pick a ministry (a job) and be Faithful. Jesus taught that the primary attribute for His followers was faithfulness. Rare is the church member today who can always be counted on for serving faithfully.

4. Obey the Lord in your Stewardship. The church needs your offerings for the Lord's work. More importantly, you need to be obedient to the Lord and give it. If every church member were obedient about giving, churches would look for good ways to use the Lord's money. 2 Cor. 9: 6-7.

5. Teach your children to Respect their Pastor. Hebrews 13: 7,17, Honor, respect, and obey your pastor whomever he happens to be. He may not be “ideal pastor”. He certainly will not be perfect, but God has placed him in the office of pastor and that office is worthy of respect and honor.

6. Envision a Great Future for Your Church.

7. Take an Active part in making that vision a reality. James 1:22,-25

8. Be faithful in prayer for one another. James 5:16, Eph. 6:18

9. Be aware of those struggling and look for ways to help. Hebrews 3:, 12-13

10. Extend personal care to each other - function as the body of Christ. Gal. 6:2

11. Share Christ and your Church with others. Luke 14: 23

12. Keep a Positive Spirit Ps. 146:5, I John 5:4 Determine to focus on the good things in life and the good things about your church. Anybody can criticize. Encourage your pastor by sharing his vision for your church.

BLESSINGS OF OBEDIENCE
Deut. 7:9-15, “Then know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; Then it shall come to pass, because you listen to these judgments, and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the mercy which He swore to your fathers. And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you. You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock. And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you.” And He will love you and bless you, You will be blessed above all people. God's desire is to bless you! Deut. 28: 1-14 are fourteen verses of blessings. God, apparently, wants to bless us. We need to bless each other, pray for one another. Fathers need to bless there children. We need to pray a blessing over our children when they leave home, when they go to bed, when we wake up. The more we bless, the less we will curse those we love. I leave you with this great prayer God told Moses to bless the children of Israel. Numbers 6: 22-27, “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, this is the way you shall bless the children of Israel, say to them:” The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you; and give you peace.” So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them,” Remember God heart is to bless, let this be our heart also, Pastor Paul and sister Claudia
