MORNINGTIME 2022

Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, COME , I PRAY YOU, AND HEAR WHAT IS THE WORD THAT COMETH FORTH FROM THE LORD. And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) THEN SHALL THEY KNOW THAT A PROPHET HATH BEEN AMONG THEM. Ezekiel 33:30-33. The day has come, and now is, that many will gladly come to church to actually hear a good word from the Lord, to desire to hear what the Lord has to say to the congregation. They will leave church declaring that they have heard from the Lord and that it was a very good message. They will go away satisfied that they have a good God and that God cares enough about them to still talk to them, to encourage them, and that they can share this Love of God to them, to others. These people will, in every way, look, act, and sound like they are Christian, that they are following Christ, and that they are doing many good deeds in the church and community. They will tell others that a real man of God has visited them. BUT THEY WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE THINGS THE LORD IS ASKING THEM TO DO. They will politely acknowledge that the Lord has spoken, TO THOSE OTHER PEOPLE WHO NEED TO HEAR FROM THE LORD. "The Lord and I are in fine shape, it's those other people over there that He's talking to, but thanks for asking". They are fully content in their own righteousness that they are going to heaven. "Having a form of godliness, BUT DENYING THE POWER THEREOF: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:5". Be Blessed?
