Greater Faith Apostolic Church blog. Nine ministers within our church will be submitting a blog each week. We want to create a conversation within our church, our organization, other churches, and other christians. We want to become Aquila and Pricilla's to our world. We want to expound the gospel more clearly in this dark world.

Company is Coming
is my very first blog.....I pray this will be a blessing and an encouragement
to all who reads it! The Lord dropped this thought in my spirit so here we
go........... Here we are at the start of the holiday seasons. Everyone is
hustling and bustling along; busy trying to make everything perfect. We start
making plans; you know families getting together and such. Then we start
looking at the house we live in and start noticing things that aren’t as
"clean" as they should be. We have gotten so busy with our own lives
and neglected some basic things. So here we go in a mad rush to get things in
order and cleaned up for our expected company. It is the same way with our spiritual
life. We get busy with our carnal life then we get stirred up by the news or a
great church service and then we start looking around "our" spiritual
house and see that it is not as "clean" as it should be. We have let
things creep in and have neglected some basic things with our walk with Christ,
you know like prayer, reading, going to church and such; after all company is
coming. The bible lets us know about our expected company coming:
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 KJV
(16)For the Lord himself shall descend from
heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of
God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
(17)Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the
air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
The thing is, we do not know exactly when:
Matthew 24:36 KJV
(36)But of that day and
hour knoweth noman,no, not the angels
of heaven, but my Father only.
he gives us hints when he will be here:
Matthew 24:37-38 KJV
(37)But as the days of
Noewere,so shall also the coming of the
Son of man be.
(38)For as in the days
that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving
in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Matthew 24:6-7 KJV
(6)And ye shall hear of
wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for allthese
thingsmust come to pass, but the end is not yet.
(7)For nation shall rise
against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and
pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
we need to get our spiritual brooms and swifter’s out and get our house back in
order for our expected company. We all know what we must do to clean our own
house. So I want to encourage you to do what you know to do, to slow down and
not get caught up in all the hype, and to remember what it is all about. The
first Black Friday has set things in motion for our expected company. Jesus is
coming!! So don't get ready but be ready!
Matthew 24:44 KJV
(44)Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think
not the Son of man cometh.
May your company
find you waiting and watching for his soon coming!
