MORNINGTIME 3719by Benjamin Munsell on March 31, 2021
For the time is come that JUDGMENT MUST BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the Righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore LET THEM (the House of God) THAT SUFFER ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD COMMIT THE KEEPING OF THEIR SOULS to Him in well doing, as UNTO A FAITHFUL CREATOR. 1 Peter 4:17-19. The American "church" with its 4 walls and grassy front yard is NOT the House of God. In these verses, the House of God is (are) the Believers, the Followers of Christ, those Washed in the Blood of Christ, ALL THOSE WITH A HEART FOR CHRIST. Judgment in us is like a Dr. doing surgery to remove something diseased, it hurts for a season, and when the Healing begins, the gladness FOR the surgery takes over. The Church, (Believers) is being Judged, (Cleansed and Purified of and from) worldliness AND the things of this world. Right now, we are feeling the start of that GOoD Judgment. We will WILLINGLY be giving up those things that try to pull us away from the Lord. Whatever it is that is trying to come between you and all the Lord has for you WILL BE FORCED TO LEAVE. Not because the Lord MAKES you move into Holiness, Righteousness, Purity and Patience, but because THOSE Things are your Heart's Desires and only the Lord can Clean, (Grow) you into CHRISTLIKENESS. This IS going to hurt, and we WILL thank Him later. That means Today is the best day to Praise Him, Honour Him AND Thank Him as He "works us over" into looking like His Son. Whenever Christ comes back, He's coming for His Bride and She will have NO spot, blemish, and wrinkle whatsoever. This won't be "easy" and it won't be "fun", but when the day comes that we look back on these days, WE WILL THANK THE LORD FOR HIS GREAT MERCY AND GRACE, as He Prepares us for our Soon Coming King. Christ has already "Paid in Full" for His Bride and we, (She) IS going to forever and ever, Eternally, Be Blessed.
