MORNINGTIME 2658
 
After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, BUT THE LABORERS ARE FEW: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. BEHOLD, I GIVE UNTO YOU POWER to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather REJOICE, BECAUSE YOUR NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN HEAVEN. Luke 10:1-2,17-20. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT. Matthew 7:14. From that time MANY OF HIS DISCIPLES WENT BACK, and walked no more with him. John 6:66. Let's touch on a few, of the many things going on here. Christ sends out labourers into the fields to be about His Business. These are people who, at least for a time, are willing to be obedient and do as Christ commands. They are "on fire" for a season and some will  fizzle out when the going gets tough. Many followed Christ, AND MANY LEFT CHRIST, but while they were willing, even for a short time, they were willing and Christ used them to preach the gospel. Many of the "TV Preachers" actually started out sounding good and preached the real Gospel. Many have been Saved under their Gospel Preaching. Later, some of those same Gospel Preachers sold out for Love of Money and have since shipwrecked back into worldliness. Here's the point, the Lord will use anyone available to further the Gospel, even if that "availability" is only for a short time. Examine yourself, are you in this for the Long Haul? Finish your race, stay in Christ, and, Be Blessed.
