Word for the Week... JUNE 12 --- 18 / 2006

"After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in Heaven:and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me;which said,Come up hither and I will show thee things which must be hereafter".

Many Bible scholars beieve that this point is reached at the Rapture of the Church. This is because the preceding chapters focus on Church history through the ages, ending with the lukewarm Laodicean Church...(Ch.3:16).[ the Church of today???] Nevertheless, Praise The Lord...the Overcomers were found worthy to partake of this first Rapture. What does it take? what will it cost? A growing number of Christians, on a global scale, are awaking to the realization that the answer is...everything !!!   In the more ' developed' parts of the world comfort, complacency and compromise have ruled much of the Church, for far too long. The most dangerous place to be is on 'the Titanic, rearranging the deckchairs' !!! To rise up in Spiritual Warfare and Intercession, coupled with fervent Evangelism is not an option, but a command of our Lord Jesus Christ !(Matt.28:18-20). Those in 'developing nations' know that these are issues of spiritual life and death, maybe because physical life and death are never very far away ! May The Lord grant us the humility to learn from our brethren in those parts of the world where the fire has not 'gone out' but is blazing brightly to the Glory of God !

May The Lord Bless you.
