Grace to you. Amidst trial, amidst fault and sin, My grace abounds, but only for a time. I call through My Spirit whom the Father calls to Me. I Am Jesus the Christ. I call many, but few respond. Some enter, but not by Me, and in the end do not receive. I know My sheep. You know My voice. Do not delay in the full coming, for time is short, and even extended is not enough for delay. You have been given life that you would know Me, that you would follow, that you would bring with you many, and your good works would abound, eternal fruit of My Kingdom. The pursuit of self is circles, never ending toil void of true joy. Come fully, that you would have great joy. My mercy awaits the repentant heart. They that receive My message know the Father’s voice and call. Do not delay. Raise your head, turn from the food that hungers, then starves, leading to death, for I Am real food. Come to the banquet, I have much to give you. Bring others as you toil for the days. Show the light that opens the eyes, the Word, that their ears would be open. You too come, a closer walk. Abide for the journey, for the end comes quickly, and the grace of the time will then be lifted. You have been called, then closer. I Am Truth, be not deceived.
John 1:14 (ESV) – And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Titus 2:11-14 (ESV) – For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
Luke 14:16-24 (ESV) – But he said to him, “A man once gave a great banquet and invited many. And at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. Please have me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them. Please have me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ So the servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house became angry and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’ And the servant said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.’”
Bottom Line: The world around us might be in upheaval. Fear, sickness and sin run rampant through the headlines and unfortunately, through many of our lives. History and His Word tell us that it is the repeating circle of a Godless world, and men alone have not been able to remedy the repetition, but we are not alone. Close to 2000 years ago, one Name has risen above the chaos and confusion of men, and through every era of history has lifted those who answer His call. This is the Name above every other name, time and calamity – Jesus, the Christ, the promised one, Emmanuel – God with us. And with Him He has brought God’s great gift, His Grace offered to each of us, that we would know Him, and His love, that we would draw close to Him – a glorious exit from the endless cycles of worldly want and emptiness. He called me by name many years ago, and daily calls me closer. He does the same for you, inviting you to His Throne of Grace and His Table of Plenty. Don’t delay in the coming. Abandon the excuses. Come and experience the timeless anchor of God’s grace.
