MORNINGTIME 3961by Benjamin Munsell on March 7, 2022
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father's Name written in their foreheads. And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are THEY which WERE NOT DEFILED WITH WOMEN; for THEY ARE VIRGINS. These are THEY which FOLLOW THE LAMB whithersoever he goeth. These were REDEEMED FROM AMONG MEN, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And IN THEIR MOUTH WAS FOUND NO GUILE: for THEY ARE WITHOUT FAULT before the Throne of God. Revelation 14:1,3-5. By the looks of these qualifications, these are some pretty serious Followers of Christ, HERE ON THIS EARTH. And that's just the point, they are VERY SERIOUS Followers of Christ. OK, so maybe you're not a Virgin, BUT ARE YOU A SERIOUS FOLLOWER OF CHRIST WITH A HEART'S CRY FOR MOST OF THESE QUALITIES? As an illustration, let's call these people "100% Believers" Preaching Christ and walking this earth. What % would you rate yourself in YOUR Walk with Christ? This walk is not "all or nothing", you're "fully in or you're fully out". No, this Walk is all about to what extent you want to make yourself AVAILABLE to Christ to Obediently do and say all that He asks of you. Would you say 25%? 50%? 75%? Whatever your %age, DO YOU WANT MORE? Is Christ First and Foremost in your Life? If He shows you some "flesh, self and old man nature" Junk He wants to remove from your Life, WILL YOU LET HIM? Can He do TO you and USE you anyway HE wants to, and you still say "Yes Lord" every time? If you can't answer these questions with 100% "YES", welcome to reality. START TODAY, say Yes to the next thing He asks of you and Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS farther than you've ever gone before. Ask the Holy Spirit to direct ALL your steps today, Grow in more and more Victories today than yesterday, and, Be Blessed.
