MORNINGTIME 2246
 
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times SOME SHALL DEPART FROM THE FAITH, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 1 Timothy 4:1. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except THERE COME A FALLING AWAY FIRST, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2:3. From that time many of his disciples went back, AND WALKED NO MORE WITH HIM. John 6:66. The question here is, who is leaving, and why? The answer is, NOT the Believers, the Christians, the Followers of Christ. They belong to Christ and He will NEVER lose one of His. Those who do leave Christ are the ones who came to hear Him out of curiosity, people who had heard good things about a man and wanted to "check Him out", and even people who were considering becoming a Follower of Christ. Granted, they never followed through, they only considered. We need to understand this because when everything starts to fall all around us, we need to KNOW, if we are of Christ, He won't let us go to fall away. Just to hear a man speak does not make you a follower of that man. You may follow him on social media, out of curiosity, just to find out where he's coming from, decide you don't care for his something-or-other, and not listen to him anymore. All that does NOT make you a Follower, a Believer, a person willing to die for his cause. You were just "window shopping" and left. MANY people have, are, and will, look at Christ this way. No commitment, just some interest, and move on. When a person TRULY DOES MEET CHRIST, he's in it all the way. There will be NO turning back, and NO regrets about leaving the world behind. No, Christ doesn't have his "hooks" in you and you can't leave, it's a Love for Christ that keeps you with Him. To Follow Christ is a 100% Willful Free Choice, Commitment, and Life Style that goes all the way to the day you die, AND FOREVER BEYOND. Be His, and Forever, Be Blessed.
