MORNINGTIME 3888by Benjamin Munsell on November 24, 2021
BEHOLD, I HAVE MADE THY FACE STRONG against their faces, AND THY FOREHEAD STRONG against their foreheads. As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: FEAR THEM NOT, neither be dismayed at their looks, though THEY BE A REBELLIOUS HOUSE. Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, ALL MY WORDS that I shall speak unto thee RECEIVE IN THINE HEART, AND hear with thine EARS. And go, GET THEE TO them of the captivity, unto the children of THY PEOPLE, AND SPEAK unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord God; WHETHER THEY will HEAR, OR whether they will FORBEAR (not hear). Ezekiel 3:8 -11. We have our marching orders and are commanded to go into all the world and Preach the Gospel. This implies to Teach and Pray for them also. Whether they will hear you or not, is not for us to decide. Just Preach the Word and the Holy Spirit will do the rest. Just like working in a garden, you can work for weeks and not see anything. It's the Lord Who brings the increase, so don't be discouraged by what you see, or don't see, just keep on working and trust the Lord to gather in all His. Again, Christ will not lose even one of His sheep. The Lord used Moses MIGHTILY, and he only had about 2 converts, AND WHAT MIGHTY MEN THEY TURNED OUT TO BE. It's idol worship to be discouraged by "low" numbers, and its Faith to keep on working JUST BECAUSE THE LORD ASKED YOU TOO with no consideration of numbers. The "flesh" wants recognition, but the Spirit keeps working whether you see Fruit or not. Don't be fearful or intimidated by what YOU think a man's response might be to you sharing Christ with him. Satan wants to keep all those he thinks are his, while Christ IS calling out all those who ARE His unto Salvation. And Salvation is just the beginning. Once Saved, ask the Lord to send them Teachers to help build their Faith in Christ. YOU MIGHT EVEN GET TO WATCH THEM GROW IN CHRIST!!! How's that for a "return" on your investment of time and Prayer. You Will forever, Be Blessed.
