MORNINGTIME 2063
 
But WE ARE ALL AS AN UNCLEAN THING, and all our righteousnesses are AS FILTHY RAGS; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Isaiah 64:6. To say this in today's English, before Christ, we are all as that thick stuff at the bottom of the sewage tank, in every sense of the word. Isaiah was being nice with his description of us. The sooner we understand and get this picture in our mind, the sooner we can move on. Real Salvation, not the standard church fare of, "All eyes closed and no one looking around", but the real Thing, is when you see where you started from, (bottom of the tank), and what Christ has done for you. That comparison is like night and day, AND YOU SEE IT, and it causes you to RUN to Christ and never look back. The 7 Days of Creation was easy, Salvation is the tough one. That's where the Holy Spirit takes you up out of the sewage tank, big time cleans you up, starts the process of Purifying you, AND PUTS YOU RIGHT BACK INTO THE TANK TO BE A LIGHT TO THOSE AROUND YOU. This time, the Oil of the Holy Spirit covers you and the world can have no affect on you at all, as you Obediently follow the Leading of the Holy Spirit. You can't hide that kind of change in you, you WILL be different, and you WILL NOT be the same. There is no such thing as a casual Christian. You WILL desire and move towards CHRISTLIKENESS. You will gladly seek the Face of Christ, His Word, His Will, and His Ways. Remember, you've seen where you've come from, and KNOW where you're going. A lukewarm "christian" has no idea what we're talking about here. Don't compare your life in Christ to ANYONE around you, you can't. Judge yourself by the standard of Christ and ask Him to change you to be more like Him. As He changes you day by day, step by step, you'll KNOW it will be done right, the first time. And when you do fall, GET BACK UP, brush yourself off, and keep on going, all the way into Christ, where you WILL, Be Blessed.
