We need to spend time thinking on the promises that YHVH gave to His People. The People of YHVH have such an amazing and incredible future to look forward too! We need to encourage one another and we need to reflect on what Abba has waiting for those who are His.
One day, this physical life will seem so far away and we will reflect on how short the time we had here really was. YHVH is calling a people out of this world and they are to be preparing themselves for the return of Messiah. What was the message that Yeshua brought with Him? What did He tell us to do? When was the last time you heard it? When was the last time you really thought about it?
17 From that time יהושע began to proclaim and to say, “Repent, for the reign of the heavens has drawn near.”
This IS the message that people STILL NEED to HEAR. We need to start with ourselves and get our own lives in order and in harmony with the Word of YHVH. Have you turned from your old life and ways and truly started walking in The Way of YHVH? How many people understand what it really means to teshuvah (turn, return, repent) of the lives they are living and turn back to YHVH with their whole heart?
As long as there are transgressions unaccounted for, they stand between us and Him. We MUST go and seek forgiveness and every transgression MUST be accounted for. Even though we have been redeemed, we still need to go to Him and seek forgiveness, cleansing and purification. Our garments must be made white and free from blemishes.
18 “I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, so that you become rich; and white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see.
The same message needs to be lifted up like a shophar NOW…people NEED to know that they MUST turn from their old lives and their old ways to be found acceptable by Him. Teshuvah, for the reign of the heavens has drawn near!!! Fix your sights on The Kingdom and do NOT look back! There is still time to turn back to YHVH…seek Him while He MAY be FOUND!
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
