Time is Running Out

18 posts in this topic

Little lambs, why do you keep your God at arm’s length?  What are you afraid of? Are you so sure that if I take your life today you would be acceptable in My eyes? You would do well to ponder this.  Children, I want you to store up heavenly treasures. I need your cooperation to help me save the lost lambs. Don’t you want to help me? Do you think you love as I do?  Then show me.  How?  Cooperate.  Stop pretending you don’t hear me – stop making excuses.  Where are your priorities? How do you spend your time? What does this tell you?  Be honest with yourselves. Time is running out. Use it wisely.

 I post some things that are "controversial" shall we say - they are not meant to be taken personally by anyone - and hopefully a few will be moved by the Holy Spirit to reflect on one thing or another. We all have room to grow - and it's not easy as I am sure you know.

Hello MrG

Do you feel living a monastic life, being isolated from family and friends has brought you closer to God?

I certainly understand the need for quiet time for mediation and reflection but how do you then demonstrate the life portrayed in the gospel?

Certainly we have moved past the point of trying to please God by self deprivation, obedience being better than sacrifice.

How do you spend your time?

And Then

 

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

 

The Master Speaks

 

Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:3-4

Hello MrG

Without a doubt - putting aside human relationships and the world allows me to focus entirely on God - it's much easier to listen for and hear His will for me and carry it out.

 

My life consists of two elements (other than doing the obvious, such as keeping a clean and orderly residence, cooking etc.) 

 

Work - I work on the internet throughout the day and evening; making posts and answering questions. My postings are of 2 types - helping others reflect and meditate on the need for spiritual growth in their lives and the other is to help prepare them for the second coming of Jesus (which I believe will happen within 10 years).

 

Our Lord has given me more than 4,300 followers on G+ (Google Plus), more than 3,000 on Linkedin - I post in 8 Christian/Catholic forums and on several other smaller sites. I, on average, make 5 to 7 posts per day on G+ and Linkedin. I read prophetic messages each day and meditate on them and sometimes incorporate their ideas and warnings into my posts. The post above is a good example of this.

 

Prayer - when I am not working on the internet I speak with God, listen to Him, and meditate on many different things; such as my relationship with Him, my frustration over not reaching more people, my being rejected by some and how sad that is - drawing parallels between my hopes and disappointments with Jesus' life and many, many other things - I could meditate on reality and talk to God for eternity.

 

Yes, it's a difficult life to lead, my humanity yearns for human love and companionship but God has called me to give this up for a much greater good to serve Him and my brothers and sisters. I am happy, content, and at peace with my life, as difficult as it is I would want it no other way. 

 

 
O Good Jesus, shelter me from the evil one, shed Thy dew upon me to calm my soul, and dwell in me fully, that I may wholly love Thee. Amen

What do you think of the Great Commission, the instruction, 

 

Mat 28:18  And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 
Mat 28:19  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 
Mat 28:20  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
