The Most Lethargic People at the Present Hour

Thought: To examine who the most carefree and careless people are at the present time.
What is the one warning that most everyone has heard from their doctors when their doctor ends up prescribing anti-biotics to help us fight an infection in our bodies? Take ALL of it even after you’re feeling better! Why is that so? It’s because naturally as the infection is killed, we begin to feel better, BUT, if we stop at that point prior to taking ALL of the medication, what little remains of that infection can then increase and become even resistant to that anti-biotic due to NOT taking all of it when told to. Thus, when our bodies are feeling like we’re fine with no problems at all, we’re at the most dangerous place we could be in. Hence, one reason being lukewarm as in Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: is such a deadly state to be in. We feel so comfortable and yet are dying because of our refusal to take all the medication needed for our welfare.
In the same way, those who have a dosage of ‘faith’ but NOT the full prescribed amount (for a better understanding of that statement read Matt 13:18-23) usually feel like they’ve got what they need, no more feeling the guilt of their sin, just a nice cozy comfy feeling of bliss and contentment of their ‘supposedly’ saved existence (or so they think!), BUT, are instead like the verses annotated in Rev 3:15-17 and are on the verge of dying on the Vine of the Lord as noted in John 15:6.
And, just as it with carnal or lukewarm Christians, so too it is with the present hour of foolish virgins as annotated in Matt 25:1-13 who stand on their confession that they’re God’s kids and have absolutely NO concern whether they are going in the upcoming rapture without any true anticipation that this may be the last breath they breathe in this existence. They sooo reflect the state of the ‘foolish doggies’ that I have penned as a thought titled, and is at, the following website; http://www.rubornagain.com/Doggies.htm in which the foolish doggies had no concern whether they were NOT going, they were just content to be in the Master’s house. So too, as I see the hour approaching where Jesus is very, very soon to remove His bride and how very few Christians are at the door doing the doggie dance AND how very few pastors are getting their group of doggies excited as well (due to being as complacent as their group of doggies).
Oh how my heart fears for these complacent brothers and sisters as they sit content each morning to be given their dosage of doggie treats that makes them feel like the loved children that they truly are, just totally unprepared for the greatest event since the coming of Jesus to this earth! For, the command to watch is given by Jesus Himself to those that confess Him as Lord! And, that time is now at hand and yet how many times are you hearing it from the pulpit??? Hardly any at all, so very sad! Here’s 5 scripture references showing how concerned Jesus is that those that know Him should be doing NOW!
Mat_24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
Mat_25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mar_13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Luk_21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
1Th_5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
1Pe_4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
Rev_3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
Those that are His are NOT exempt from missing the Tribulation as MANY complacent pastors are preaching! They will be like the 5 of 7 churches that Jesus Himself addresses in Rev 2 & 3 in which they needed to repent. But because He loves those that confess Him, as Lord, He is too loving to just allow them to perish so will punish them for their complacency so that they will repent. So, how much better to allow those to experience the Tribulation and have their heads cutoff so that they will repent of their lethargic attitudes and get into an intense love affair with Him and spend eternity with Him in Glory? And the reason this kind of attitude (absolute lethargy) is sooo prevalent amongst God’s people in this once great nation is because of the refusal of God’s appointed leaders to refuse to ‘fortify’ His believers with the spirit of fruitfulness as is warned in John 15:1-10 and instead are misguiding them by preaching ‘once saved, always saved’ which is TOTALLY against His Word! YES! IF Faith remains, NO, if it does NOT! Hence the reason to KEEP Trusting And Obeying (I love that old hymn, Trust and Obey, for there’s no other way…)
I see other ‘watchmen’ all over the internet raising their voices loud and strong trying their best to warn those that confess Jesus as Lord but seldom will you ever hear it preached locally. Soon and very soon, those that are hearing people like me yelling out LOUD AND CLEAR to those that confess Jesus as Lord, will no longer have to deal with people like me emailing or telling them for they will be gone and in endless delights with the King while they are then finally forced to either get into the FIRE of passion with Jesus, or into the COLD of following the anti-christ. Soon, there will be NO MORE FENCE to straddle. Jesus and the anti-Christ will make sure of that!
Heavenly Father, may each and every one that names Jesus as Lord be in a fervent and passionate love affair with Jesus and may each one of our hearts be full of the expectancy of His ‘catching away’ of His bride at any moment! For, it’s in the Infinite, Glorious, and Matchless Name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
