Verse for the Month~ Matthew 24:37_39
What is the lesson for all of us in the above verse? To take heed to the warning of Jesus. We can safeguard ourselves by taking heed to the word of our God; by being watchful each day that the Lord gives us. Men have heard warnings from many prophets over the ages, yet they usually ignore the warnings and are caught off guard by the judgment that follows. The entire history of the nation of Israel testifies to this truth. Furthermore, Matthew 24 goes on to record Jesus Himself warning our world of another coming judgment, His Second Coming. Nevertheless, Jesus says the world will be caught off guard when He returns. Notice, the world will be surprised by the Second Coming despite the Bible’s many warnings (often repeated by preachers throughout the centuries) that this event will lead to judgment for the ungodly. The prophets warnings were ignored and Noah’s warnings were ignored. If Jesus’ warnings will be ignored before His Second Coming, then certainly warnings today will be ignored as well.There is the warning of the Scriptures. Even many who do not read the Bible know the story of the flood, which serves as a warning to them. But over and over Jesus and others in the Bible warn of the certainty of the coming judgment. A day will dawn for each of us that will not start any differently than any other day. But before that day is over, we will be face to face with God. Either Jesus Christ will have returned to judge the earth, or we will die and stand before God. Are you ready for that day? The Book of Revelation clearly shows that the world will be prospering right up to the final hour when judgment falls.
A Word From Pastor Steven Luke 17:26–27
“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.” Jesus called out the fact that the people in Noah’s day ignored the message that would have saved them. At the same time, the Lord warned us of people today making the same mistake: “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.”
What is our Point of Action? So, dear brothers and sisters, let’s walk in a new way from today. Let’s apply these truths to our lives, and say, Lord, I want to live in a way that glorifies you on this earth. Unfortunately, the sad reality is that many of those who call themselves Christian are not truly born again or saved. Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven”(see Matthew 7:21-23). The Bible exhorts, Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves (2 Corinthians 13:5), and make your calling and election sure 2 Peter 1:10.
We hope that the above verses and small exhortations not only encourage and strengthened but that it also alerts you to be more vigilant with your walk with our Lord.
We are working at and planning to develop our newsletter into a magazine format as time goes by. Please remember to visit our Christ Centered daily devotional page by clicking on our devotion link above where you will be empowered by the word of God each day. Also, for those who have prayer request; you can access our prayer request from our homepage or you could email us directly at email@example.com. You could also call us at: (647) 856-6030 or (647) 535-1874.
Its our prayer that this month’s letter not only inform you of what’s upcoming or happening at Christ Centered House of God but that it also encourages and edifies you to press on enduringly to a higher place in God. Where we will all grow from glory to glory, strength to strength, faith to faith, with deep calling us unto deep as we go up hither.
Our main goal at Christ Centered House of God – is to shine the light of Jesus to everyone so that we all can be transformed to the Image of Christ. Consequently, we can then walk as He walked, endowed and enabled by His divine grace. Jesus too was tempted and yet he never sinned. “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). Our goal is to clearly communicate a message of the hope that we have in Jesus Christ by our conduct, character and lifestyle.
This hope is not found in religion or anything that we can see, but only in a personal relationship with Jesus.
By His Grace,
With Love from Pastor Steven and Family and Christ Centered House of God
