Jesus’ Advice for Living in the Last Days: Don’t Ignore This Crucial Guidance | God Message

in these final days before the return of our Lord Jesus Christ it is crucial for

every Christian to be vigilant and watch out for certain warning signs the first sign is the spirit of

slumbering this is a spiritual influence that weakens a person’s dedication to

spiritual matters leading to disinterest and lethargy towards God Jesus used the

parable of the virgins to illustrate how the kingdom of God will be in these

last days in this Parable Jesus emphasized that both groups each

comprising five virgins symbolized Purity signifying the children of God

this Parable wasn’t just a story but a cautionary tale for believers who

already possessed the light or in the case of the virgins the lamps and the

oil Jesus pointed out that all the virgins both wise and foolish fell

asleep while waiting for the bridegroom during their Slumber the announcement was made of the

bridegroom’s arrival they woke up and prepared their lamps to welcome him

however the foolish ones lacking extra oil symbolizing the grace and support of

the Holy Spirit couldn’t keep their lamps lit until the bridegroom arrived

when they sought to buy oil it it was too late he had already entered the celebration with the virgins who were

prepared with extra oil another Parable Jesus shared on this subject was the

story of the wheat and the weeds in Matthew chap Jesus recounted a man who so good

seeds but awoke to find both good seeds and weeds in his field the spirit of slumbering renders

the believer passive or inactive towards matters they should be be actively engaged in this is one of the warning

signs every Christian should be alert to in these last days the distractions that

seek to draw you away from prayer studying the word attending church

services or obeying God’s word are the ones trying to lull you into Slumber a

clear indication that you’re slipping into spiritual Slumber when you realize

that the things that once captivated you no longer hold your interest you’ve begun to Slumber when

you find it difficult to pray study your Bible or fellowship with fellow

Believers the Bible urges us to wake from our Slumber and receive the grace

of the Lord to empower us to be vigilant and await his coming Ephesians to

States this is why it is said wake up sleeper rise from the dead and Christ

will shine on you be very careful then how you live not as unwise but as wise

making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil therefore do

not be foolish but understand what the Lord’s will is one Peril of spiritual

Slumber is that like the farmer who soak good seeds and then slept you give the

enemy the devil room to come in and plant seeds needs of distraction and

destruction in your life before you know it you might find yourself becoming

comfortable with things you would never have tolerated before this is a sign of

slumbering when you Slumber you permit the enemy to seow things in your life

that eventually dull your spiritual Sensitivity I pray that the Lord will

Rouse each one of us from every slumbering state and shine his light upon us in jesus’ name another crucial

sign to watch for in these last days as a Christian is the second one the surge

in sin and sinful Behavior Jesus prophesied that in the

end times iniquity would abound nowadays you don’t need a

television or the news to understand the moral degradation that has permeated the

world while the world has always been spiritually desolated there used to be

some solid moral values upheld in society however today nearly every sense

of morality has been discarded every form of sin and Abomination imaginable is being explored

and normalized we may lament but it doesn’t change the fact that these are

unmistakable signs that the end is near though Christianity encompasses more

than just moral ity we understand that good moral conduct has a place in our

worship of God the Bible imparts much wisdom regarding morals because they are

integral to our faith the present level of sinfulness in the world serves as

evidence and a warning sign that the end is approaching and we must be

vigilant Once Upon a Time certain things were done discreetly and many were

hesitant to engage in them due to societal disapproval this served as a deterrent

against numerous Temptations and pressures however the enemy has since

erected pillars of Temptation throughout Society various forms of ungodliness and

diverse Abominations are presented to us daily even within the sanctity of our

homes we must utter The Lord’s Prayer lead us not into temptation but Deliver

Us from all evil and ensure we steer clear of anything that entices us to sin

recognizing this warning should fortify our resolve to maintain Purity and

Holiness for God Our Redeemer for one day we will stand before him to give an

account of our lives and none of us knows when that day will arrive another

sign that demands the attention of every child of God in these end times is the third one prioritizing self love over

love for God Timothy cautions but

Mark this there will be terrible times in the last days people will be lovers

of themselves lovers of money boastful proud abusive disobedient to their

parents ungrateful Unholy Without Love unforgiving slanderous Without

self-control brutal not lovers of the good treacherous rash conceited lovers

of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power have nothing to do with such

people one of the underlying causes of sin and the heartbreaking decay in our

societies is the substitution of love for God righteousness and good morals

with selfish love and pursuit of personal gain I once heard a man say

that selfishness is at the root of all sin people love themselves too much to

deny themselves things God instructs them to avoid the flesh does not rever

God nor does it love him so it craves things without concern for whether God

sanctions them each time we yield to the desires of our flesh we commit a sin

against God the flesh prompts you to slander to harm others to retaliate

against those who wrong you to love only those who love you in return and to

pursue your own happiness even if it does not glorify God look around you

today the world vividly illustrates what transpires when self-love eclipses love

for God individuals have been encouraged to embrace their carnal desires and we

are now witnessing the consequences of this reign of the flesh unnatural appetites various Abominations

corruption crime and Injustice Against Humanity many parents have turned to

homeschooling their children due to the contamination infiltrating our Educational

Systems as daunting as it sounds this state of affairs will persist until the

Lord returns nevertheless as children of God

we must recognize that these are warnings from God signaling the end and

what what did Jesus instruct us to do he said in Matthew

– then will appear the sign of the son of man in heaven and then all the

peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the son of man coming on the Clouds Of Heaven with power and great

glory and he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call and they will gather

his elect from the Four Winds from one end of the Heavens to the other now

learn this lesson from the Fig Tree as soon as its Twigs get tender and its

leaves come out you know that Sumer is near even so when you see all these

things you know that it is near right at the door these signs serve the purpose

of reminding us that God Faithfully fulfills his word and never falters so if you find yourself in a

state of spiritual Slumber like The Virgins it’s time time to Rouse yourself and acquire extra oil to keep your light

burning ensuring you don’t lose your way these warning signs prompt us to stand

firm for the truth of God’s light and never give up regardless of the

circumstances they encourage us with the assurance that soon the trials and tribulations of this world along with

the challenges we Face will come to an end the Lord who promised his return

will indeed come and we will be with him forever be emboldened dear

believer your weight will be rewarded keep your faith in the Lord do

not Despair and do not be afraid he will come and he will rescue

those who trust in him from the contaminations of this world once and for all we are in the last days the days

preceding Christ’s return to to gather his followers to Heaven if there’s ever

a time to be vigilant it is now everything Jesus prophesied in the Bible

regarding his return is unfolding right before our eyes there’s no doubt that

the word of God and its prophecies have been accurate all along however only those whose eyes have

been opened By the Light Of Truth will perceive it the information presented in

this video is me for those in Christ not for those without him if you haven’t yet

established a relationship with Jesus there’s no better time than now you

don’t even need to finish watching this video before you do so you can do it

right where you are pause this video and invite Jesus into your life to become

your lord and savior he’s not looking for flawless individuals who have

everything figured out before they can be saved he already declared anyone who

believes in his Redemptive work for Humanity and calls upon him to save them shall be saved Romans –

it’s as simple as that I urge you to take this step immediately then return

to this video to heed the Urgent Message about the signs every believer should be attentive to before Christ’s arrival you

see Jesus impending return as the reigning King to gather his holy people

is a message of Hope for those who have yet to entrust their lives to him in faith however to those who are called

Believers and are genuinely walking in the grace and mercy of God this message

brings hope and good news every time you switch on the TV or

computer screen the news seems to reaffirm every word of God regarding the

imminent return of Jesus Jesus in fact Jesus himself informed us in Matthew

so also you when you see all these things know that he is near right at the

door hence when you hear the apostles in their letters to the church cautioning

us to always stay vigilant and watchful so we’re not caught off guard by the

great day of the Lord they are reiterating what Jesus already stated

these signs will proceed and serve as evidence that he is about to appear and take his church with him you must ensure

that you are not left behind due to being unprepared either due to careless living or the world’s deceit tempting

you to stray from the faith you profess so what are the signs every

believer should be on the lookout for before Christ’s return here are some of them false

claimants who come in the name of Jesus is it wrong to go out as a servant of

God and a messenger of Jesus no it’s

not however Jesus cautioned us that in the days leading to his return there

will be a significant surge of individuals falsely professing to be from God but are in fact imposters in

sheep’s clothing Matthew to their primary objective is to

deceive and leave lead God’s people astray therefore it is imperative to he

Jesus’s Words Be watchful for them and make certain that you are not

deceived we have witnessed the emergence of these false teachers since the days

of the Apostles in the early church these are the ones who prioritize

their own desires over gods they show no concern for your soul

they do not teach the truth they either lie or preach half truths cloaked in

hypocrisy corrupting the minds of their followers they set a bad example and

attempt to justify it by taking Bible verses out of context they redefine Holiness and

Purity permitting what God forbids and dissuading people from doing what God

commands Jesus stated that when you see them proliferating know that his return

turn is drawing near the appearance of wars and threats of

Wars this is another significant sign we currently live in an era marked by

constant fear of warfare numerous Nations have been torn apart by Civil Wars and many others

Teeter on the brink of conflict due to the uncertainty of what might trigger

hostilities more nations are forming alliances against one another and it

seems as though the world is spiraling into chaos well I can tell you Jesus foretold

that such a time would come Matthew – you will hear of wars and rumors of

wars but see to it that you are not alarmed such things must happen but the

end is still to come Nation will rise against nation and Kingdom against

Kingdom this is a sign of the the impending return of Jesus it may appear as another era of

conflict but it is not Beyond just being another era Believers in Christ must

recognize that it serves as a reminder that the Lord is returning so instead of joining those

who only focus on the latest news Trends political alliances government

complaints and speculations about which nation will dominate the world Believers

should ensure they are preparing their hearts for the true king the Lord food

shortages earthquakes and other natural disasters we are witnessing this sign

more than ever in history it has become so commonplace that some national media

Outlets no longer consider it newsworthy earthquakes other natural

disasters economic and food crisis especially those brought about by

natural disasters are the signs Jesus said would precede his return Matthew

to Nation will rise against nation and Kingdom against Kingdom there will

be famines and earthquakes in various places all these are the beginning of

birth pains it may not signify the end of the world yet but it is an indication that

we are nearing the great day of the Lord and therefore we must be prepared

increased persecution of God’s people although persecution of the Christian

faith has been a recurring theme throughout history before the return of Jesus there will be an escalation in the

intensity of the persecution of Believers like never before in fact

governments societies and almost everyone surrounding Believers will turn

against us before Jesus returns Matthew then you will be handed over to be

persecuted and put to death and you will be hated by All Nations because of me we

may already witness this in some Nations and communities do not be deceived when they

attempt to use legal terminology the truth is that it is a direct attack on

the saints of God a sign our Lord stated would precede his coming

apostasy and division within the faith this is already unfolding around us

Believers are divided over what to believe and how to live many have mixed

their faith with the values of the world losing sight of who they once were and

what they once professed you can observe some Believers and see that they have forsaken their

faith and embraced the world Jesus for warned us that when the troubles or

distractions of this world lead many astray from the faith it is a sign that

the end is Drawing Near Matthew at that time many will turn away from the

faith and will betray and hate each other this is not the time to be fighting with fellow Believers dear

child of God but to wage war against the kingdom of darkness attempting to snatch

your brother or sister from the faith escalating wickedness and selfishness in

the world the magnitude of atrocities and violations of God’s word that we

witness today like never before are signs Jesus said would precede his

coming Saints should be on the lookout for them brothers and sisters betraying

each other people turning against themselves for personal gain people harming innocent individuals just for

personal gratification various forms of such Behavior are

occurring Jesus stated that this is a sign to be vigilant for Matthew

because of the increase of wickedness the love of most will grow

cold the final sign is the encouraging news and hope for every believer before

Jesus returns the gospel will be preached all over the world and the church WIll begin to experience more

revivals than Retreats Matthew in this Gospel of the Kingdom will

be preached in the whole world as a testimony to All Nations and then the

end will come this is uplifting news because God will be working powerfully

through his sons and daughters across various parts of the world reaching out to lost and broken souls for Christ so

each time you and I share the gospel via social media on the streets in villages

and through every means possible we are acting as the signs ourselves hastening

the coming of the Lord Jesus said that when the gospel successfully spreads

throughout the Earth then the end will come the positive aspect of this is that

at the end of it all God emerges Victorious there is no scenario in which

the kingdom of darkness prevails in this mission yes there will be challenging

times yes there will be casualties and yes it may seem like the enemy is

winning but the truth is in the end Jesus tells us not to lose heart because

he has already secured the victory no demon in hell can hinder the Lord’s

appearance and no devil can fought God’s Triumph hence the words of Jesus in John

I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace in this world you

will have trouble but take heart I have overcome the world the purpose of being

watchful for these signs is not to terrify or induce panic but rather to

find peace in the knowledge that one day soon your Lord and Master will appear

and bring enduring peace to all who sincerely and Faithfully call upon him

may your joy be multiplied dear believer you are on the Victorious side and your

hope in Jesus is secure so stand firm and ask God to Grant you grace through

the Holy Spirit to remain steadfast in the faith until the end and may that

blessed day find us anticipating the Lord and entering into his rest when he makes his appearance one of life’s

greatest privileges after salvation is to be called called into God’s service

do you sense that God is calling you what does God’s calling look like are

you currently fulfilling God’s assignment for your life what might be

hindering you questions like these help us gain perspective and understand our

place in life and in God’s purpose for us first and foremost it’s important to

understand how God’s calling operates Ates there are three types or levels of

God’s calling the call to Salvation this is a universal call by

default the Bible teaches that all have sinned and fall short of God’s glory

every person born of a man and woman into this world is a sinner in need of

the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ the call to Salvation invites every person

to accept Jesus Jesus as Lord for their salvation and to receive eternal life

Titus says for the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all

people to respond to this call all you need to do is believe and receive Jesus

as Lord over your life and turn away from a life of sin in Repentance the call to service or

Ministry this call is slightly more specific because it is only extended to

those who are saved in Christ only those who have become children of God can

offer acceptable service this mirr is the ancient practice where only consecrated

individuals from the family of Aaron could serve as priests in the house of

God no one else no matter how much they love God was permitted to serve in the

capacity of a priest today the Bible tells us that through Jesus we have been

made Kings and Priests unto God therefore only those saved in Christ are

eligible to be called into God’s service answering this call means

Allowing God to use the gifts and talents he has placed within you Romans

says we have different gifts according to the grace given to each of

us if your gift is prophesying then prophesy in accordance with with your

faith if you read further in this chapter you’ll find other areas where

our gifts can be utilized number three the call to the

five-fold ministry this summons is not in any way

General it is designated solely For Those whom God intends to execute his

plan whether as Apostles prophets evangelists pastors or teachers

Ephesians – asserts so Christ

himself gave the apostles the prophets the evangelists the pastors and teachers

to equip his people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith

and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ thus

the five-fold ministry is devoted to Preparing the rest of us in Christ to fulfill our services according to the

work God has granted us the grace and capacity to perform now the word of God is explicit

concerning how our calling should be however today my emphasis primarily

revolves around you and God’s call on your life a significant indicator of

your devotion and fervor for God is the genuine Longing To discern and undertake

anything you believe would be pleasing to him when you love the Lord you might

find yourself eager to identify opportunities to serve him it could be

sharing your faith with as many people as possible or contributing in various

capacities within your local church it might involve becoming a financial supporter of God’s kingdom or

even supporting those engaged in the five-fold ministry regardless of the specifics this genuine

desire often arises naturally at times you might perceive it

as an overpowering urge to pursue God other times you might observe that your

inclinations are gravitating more towards this direction compared to previous

interests this in itself is a sign that God is beckoning you to serve it could

very well be the indicator that God’s calling is upon your life in addition to

the profound aspiration to engage in God’s work what other manifestations can

you expect when God calls you number one God May orchestrate encounters as a

means to affirm your desire and provide guidance on where when and how he wants

you to serve these encounters may come through dreams Visions or specific

messages from another another believer such as your pastor or spiritual leader

I recall when as a young teenager newly devoted to Christ I was fervently eager

to share my faith with others my friends could all tell that something

transformative had occurred in me I was always on the lookout for tracks or

small Publications that I could share with anyone who seemed in need I also

recall participating in Pro programs and receiving prophetic affirmations of God’s calling on my life these

experiences affirmed the desire that God had already planted in my heart it was

undoubtedly Supernatural as some of those delivering the affirmations hardly knew me yet they were being used by God

to convey his calling to me additionally I had dreams visions and even heard the

Holy Spirit speaking to me about certain certain things that I am currently engaged in it’s crucial to understand

that when I speak of God’s call on you I’m not exclusively referring to a call

to become a preacher or Prophet I’m encompassing every form of service

within God’s kingdom be it as a Pulpit Pastor a field missionary or a volunteer

in youth ministry the Bible itself teaches that every one of us is indispensable and

contributes to the effective functioning of the whole body Corinthians

– emphasizes there are various kinds of gifts but the Same Spirit distributes

them there are different kinds of service but the same Lord there are

different kinds of working but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God

at work now to each one the manifestation of the spirit is given for

the common good further in verses –

so that there should be no division in the body but that its parts should have equal concern for each other if one part

suffers every part suffers with it if one part is honored every part rejoices

with it now you are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it so

this is the essence of what I’m conveying regardless of what God calls

you to do it holds as much significance as the calling of another which you

might perceive as loftier you are as anointed for your calling as they are

for theirs number two another discernable sign when God calls you is

the sense of peace that accompanies your service in that capacity it’s important to differentiate

between being called to to a specific role and being directed to leave behind all other Pursuits as often observed in

the full-time fivefold Ministry if for instance you’re a doctor

God may call you to serve as a pastor while still continuing your medical

practice however the core principle remains that you’ll find genuine peace

and contentment only in the area that God has unmistakably pointed out number

three a distinctive event is when others begin to affirm the same calling for you

I can recall people tagging me as a pastor even though I hadn’t officially taken on that role and was actively

involved in the choir they could discern my Zeal and the evident Grace and

gifting of God when it came to discussing the kingdom and Christ it’s

crucial to exercise caution and not allow others to pressure you into role r

that God hasn’t specifically called you to this affirmation should align with

what God himself has revealed or begun to reveal about his call on your life

number four you will notice an increase in the anointing within that specific

area of service I’ve witnessed individuals whom God was beckoning towards a life of

prayer and intercession exhibit a profound anointing that surpassed their natural abilities

imagine a person who struggled with speech fluency leading and praying with unwavering intensity without a trace of

stuttering it might be surprising to hear that they once struggled with speech but it’s the anointing associated

with their calling the same principle was demonstrated in the lives of David

the disciples and numerous others who were anointed for their specific calling

you might look at yourself and harbor concerns about your capabilities to serve God I want to assure you that

you’re not alone in this sentiment God never called individuals

based on their perceived qualifications he was well acquainted with their shortcomings limitations and fears he

knew they would face challenges yet he called them why Paul elucidates this in

First Corinthians chap –

brothers and sisters think of what you were when you were called not many

of you were Wise by human standards not many were influential not many were of

noble birth but God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise

God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong God chose the lowly

things of this world and the despised things and the things that are not to

nullify the things that are so that no one may boast before him ultimately no

one can boast in themselves but all the glory must be ascribed to him while

being called by God is an immense privilege we must always bear in mind

that his honor and Will are the focal points of his calling not our personal

aspirations another outcome might be encountering ing spiritual attacks from

Satan he recognizes that your response to God’s call Will pose a threat to his

kingdom hence he may instill fear and self-doubt however do not be dismayed

You Are Not Alone God has pledged that he will always be with you through his holy

spirit just as he was with David Moses Daniel and the

apostles he will never forsake you you can can rely on him for strength when it

is needed and to use you until he is Thoroughly satisfied you can pray now seeking the

Lord’s guidance in Discerning his call on your life and be prepared to respond with obedience when he communicates it

this marks the commencement of a life filled with fulfillment have you ever felt as if

you’re in a valley of dry bones where your dreams relationships and plans seem

withered and forsaken let me reassure you that God is testing you preparing you for something

Superior you see God has a purpose for each one of us he has inscribed a

destiny over our lives and planted dreams in our hearts nevertheless the path to

realizing those dreams is seldom smooth it’s fraught with challenges and

trials this is because God intend tends to refine us and equip us for the place

of Promise he has set aside we often assume that serving God in Ministry

guarantees Comfort however the truth is anything worthwhile demands effort and encounters

opposition God allows difficulty on the path because he desires to draw from us

that which our adversary might exploit against us the good news is this God

cares too much for us to elevate us prematurely he knows precisely what we

require to fulfill our destiny and he is preparing us for it when the time is

right he will advance us to the place of Promise he has prepared I’ve always yearned for my life

to magnify God I aspire to lead a life that showcases God’s boundless power and

worthiness ensuring that he receives all the glory not me perhaps perhaps you

share this sentiment here is the key when God employs individuals to demonstrate his

power he employs trials not Comfort trials are God’s most prevalent tool as

they refine us and ready us for the place of Promise therefore if you find yourself

navigating a rough patch do not lose heart God is readying you for something

Superior trust in him and press onward you are closer to your place of Promise

than you realize God is testing you preparing you for something better consider this God

has a track record of employing individuals who have faced significant

trials recall the narratives in the Bible of figures like job Joseph Daniel

Moses and Paul they all confronted extraordinary trials yet God used them

in extraordinary ways in fact we remember them for how

they confronted their trials were it not for their trials we

might not even know their names so if you aspire to be an instrument of God’s

glory you must be willing to face trials sometimes we must endure a

multitude of them yet here’s the thing God never says oops or my bad he is

always in command even when we fail to discern how we can have confidence that

God is laboring for His glory I acknowledge that pain can be

overwhelming but remember pain is not without purpose as Psalm advises

be still and know that I am God I will be exalted among all nations I will be

exalted in the earth furthermore Romans assures us for those who love God

all things work together for good if you are growing in your willingness to serve

and love God irrespective of whether he grants your specific requests it is a

positive sign that he is preparing you to receive it trust him and persist in

your endeavors remember God is Not idly watching events unfold he is

orchestrating them let’s dispel our worries about the outcome and trust that

God has a blueprint for our lives as we confront trials and tribulations let’s

mirror the faith Heroes who preceded us let’s stand firm knowing that God is

equipping us for something better and once the Tempest subsides we will emerge

stronger and more poised to serve God than ever before be courageous and

maintain your faith God walks with you every step of the way and he will never

abandon or forsake you rely on him and he will create a path even where it

seems impossible it’s simple to become fixated on something we desire fervently to the

extent that we neglect to consider if it truly aligns with God’s plan for our

lives James reminds us that at times our desires may be misguided and we need

to exercise discernment it is plausible that the blessing you are seeking is not in line

with God’s will for you at this particular juncture allow me to pose

this question are you prepared to have faith in God even when he responds with a no to your

petitions can you continue to love and serve him even if the blessing you yearn

for is not granted this constitutes the true lious test of your faith and relationship with

him in Mark to we encounter a woman who sought a blessing for her

daughter initially Jesus appeared to decline her request but she persisted

and demonstrated that her intentions were sincerely aligned with God’s will

she sought the blessing for the glorification of God not merely to SA satisfy her own

desires so if you feel that God is testing you and withholding blessings

take heart it is conceivable that he is preparing you for something even more

remarkable than what you initially sought have faith in him and prioritize

his will above your personal desires remember he understands what is

best for us even when we struggle to grasp it in the moment let us maintain a

robust faith and keep our hearts fixed on God’s plan for us he loves us and

desires the best for us even if it entails subjecting us to tests along the

way let’s embrace the journey and Trust his guidance knowing that he is

preparing us for something greater than we can fathom allow me to encourage you

by stating that much like how Jesus responded with a no to the woman in the Bible there are instances when God

denies our requests to Foster our growth in faith and prepare us for something

better his intent is to bless us but he also desires us to possess the faith to

receive those blessings this occasionally necessitates traversing a period of testing during

which we must trust God even when it appears that he is not answering our

prayers in such moments our genuine character is unveiled

will we recoil from God or will we continue to trust him even when our

desires aren’t met God is not endeavoring to withhold blessings from

us he yearns for us to be equipped to receive them however here’s the

heartening news just because God initially answers with a no doesn’t imply that he won’t eventually respond

with a yes if we greet his no with faith and confidence he can employ this to ready

us for something even more extraordinary than what we initially

requested sometimes we must navigate a valley of decision where our dreams and

desires are assessed yet it is Within These valleys that we can cultivate our faith and

develop into the individual’s God en Visions if you’re feeling disheartened

today because it appears that God is not heeding your prayers I want to inspire

you to persist in trusting him utilize this time to bolster your faith and

transform into the person God intends you to be and bear in mind God’s refusal

is often merely a stepping stone to his affirmation in Ephesians we are

reminded that God desires to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we

ask or think nonetheless there’s a caveat it’s in accordance with his work

within us this implies that the more we permit God to work in us the more

spectacular things he will accomplish through US hence during seasons of

refining it is imperative that we lean into and entrust ourselves to the loving

guidance of our dear savior Ponder on those dry bones in the valley they

symbolize the relationships dreams and marriages that many individuals have

forsaken because they are unwilling to let go of their own desires and allow God to have his way yet we need not

permit our dreams to wither away in the valley rather we should humble ourselves

and strive to comprehend what the Lord is orchestrating around us yes it’s

tough going through seasons of refinement is no walk in the park

nevertheless bear in mind that on the other side of this refining period awaits a fresh perspective and a shower

of new mercies let’s begin by rejecting any sense of entitlement and refraining

from demanding to be understood instead let’s place our trust

in God’s plan and purpose for our lives he will Faithfully guide us and we

will find strength as we press forward so let’s humble ourselves under the

mighty hand of God in due time we will be exalted and honored before a watching

World God employs trials to shift our Reliance entirely onto him he desires us

to cling to him and find peace in him alone and remember he is preparing us

for something Superior something abundantly beyond all that we could ever ask or think so if you’re in a season of

refin hold on steadfastly to your faith trust in the Lord and know that he is

orchestrating all things for your good don’t let your dreams fade away in the

valley instead fix your Gaze on Jesus and let him lead you to the other side

recall he desires to accomplish great things through you but it commences with

his work within you therefore let’s surrender to him and witness as he does

exceedingly above and beyond all that we could ever ask or think trials and

weaknesses may be challenging to confront but they are actually God’s way of preparing us for something greater

when we navigate through these tough times we learn to lean on him rather than on our own strength we come to

understand that it is God alone who deserves recognition and honor we

realize that he is our source of strength not our own abilities in Corinthians to it

is stated that God selects what is considered low and despised in the world to nullify things so that no human being

might boast in the presence of God and you know what this includes our trials

and weaknesses God entrusts us with these challenges as a gift because he knows

they will ultimately draw us closer to him when Trials come your way remember

that they are not intended to break you but to shape you they are meant to

facilitate growth in your faith and Holiness and when you respond to these

trials with faith and Holiness you can take joy in knowing that you’re storing

up rewards in heaven but if you respond with fear and complaining you miss out

on the that opportunity for reward remember God is testing you

because he is preparing you for something better so don’t lose heart

when things get tough instead lean into God and trust that he is with you every

step of the way he has magnificent plans for you and he will never abandon you or

forsake you in a world filled with numerous voices and Spirits seeking to

to commune with you you must listen when God’s spirit speaks to your heart one of

your most valuable assets as a Christian is the holy spirit he serves as the

conduit through which God the Father communicates with you in your spirit either directly through the word or

through other means sometimes the Lord may be speaking to you but because you don’t understand

nor know how to listen you may think he’s silent the Bible attests that there are many

kinds of languages in this world and each one has meaning not one is without

significance it’s also crucial to emphasize that even in our relationship

with God every word from God carries meaning instruction promise and intent

from God to us if we miss the meaning or the central message when God speaks to

our hearts we miss everything he intends tends to work in our lives I say this to all believers one of

the primary reasons we wander and struggle is that we often fail to let God lead us one of the most common ways

God leads his children is by speaking directly to our hearts how does God do this he speaks to

our Spirits through his own Spirit residing within us if you’re a child of

God the Holy Spirit dwells within you God doesn’t need to descend to

communicate with you he now resides within you through his Spirit Jesus

discussed the holy spirit with his disciples in John

to I have much to say to you more than you can now bear but when he the spirit

of truth comes he will guide you into all the truth he will not speak speak on

his own he will speak only what he hears and he will tell you what is Yet to Come

he will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you all that belongs to the

father is mine that is why I said the spirit will receive from me what he will

make known to you through the Holy Spirit the Lord illuminates the meaning

of the Bible through the holy Spirit the Lord provides you with guidance

regarding your decisions and how you should approach them let me walk you

through this a bit to ensure you understand how the Lord communicates his words to you like I mentioned earlier

God speaks to his children in many ways he can use different methods to

communicate with you than he does with another person some individuals may

testify that God speaks to them through dreams or visions another person may say he speaks

to them through an audible voice as if someone is with them in the same room

another may come and say they just sense a witness within their Spirits over

something they can tell that it’s God speaking to them about something

whichever way God uses one thing is clear regardless of how God speaks to

each one of us we must know how to recognize and pay attention when he speaks one of the distinguishing marks

of a Believer who is intimate with God is their ability to discern when he speaks to them by his Spirit Jesus said

in John my sheep listen to my voice I know them and they follow me when you’re

close to someone you can easily identify their voice no matter where you are I

remember the first time I met a close friend of mine whom I’d met online we’d known each other for years

and shared Great Moments however we’d never met face to

face except through video calls and photographs yet it felt like we known

each other for ages that day I arrived in the city late at night due to traffic jams and he had

to come pick me up from my cab stop when I saw him coming from a distance in the

darkness I could tell he was the one even though I hadn’t seen his face in

the light yet all I could see was the silhouette of his image and that was

enough that is the true power of intimacy if you’re close to someone you

can recognize their voice and presence even if you can’t see them do you know

that you can get that intimate with God in in fact do you know that God wants

you to be that intimate with him he wants you to know his presence and

identify his voice he wants you to know how to differentiate between the voices

of the world the voice of the devil and the voice of his spirit in your heart

you may not know this but the devil also tries to speak to your heart just like

God does and this is exactly why you must listen and know how to obey when

God’s spirit is speaking to your heart if you can’t you’ll fall into many

troubles Jesus said in John the gatekeeper opens the gate for

him and the Sheep listen to his voice he calls his own Sheep by name and leads

them out when he has brought out all his own he goes on ahead of them and his

sheep follow him because they know his voice but they will never follow a

stranger in fact they will run away from him because they do not recognize a

stranger’s voice in these verses Jesus was confirming that there will be voices of

strangers who try to communicate with you but if you’re his follower you won’t

pay attention to those voices but rather run away from them when God’s spirit

speak speaks to you he communicates with your heart he doesn’t speak to your

physical ears I believe that one reason most Believers struggle to hear God is

because we want to hear him with our physical ears that’s not how God

communicates you see the Bible says that God is a spirit and must be worshiped as

one as a spirit he communicates with his children through their own spirit

Spirits when the spirit of God is communicating with you he uses the voice

of your Consciousness sometimes this may sound like you’re the one thinking to yourself

but the truth is that God’s spirit is speaking to your heart now the devil can

do this too but there are ways to tell if it’s God’s spirit speaking to your

heart or the devil number one when God’s spirit speaks to your heart his words

don’t contradict what the Bible says this is the first and most important

measure of God’s word remember that when the devil tempted Jesus he quoted verses

from the scriptures how did Jesus recognize and counter the

deception he revealed that Satan was taking those verses out of

context you see not every word taken from the Bible and echoing in your heart

is from God’s spirit you need to be able to connect the words being said with the

character and power of God the enemy or your flesh will not give you

Inspirations that agree with the character of God for example when you

hear a voice telling you to avenge yourself of a hurt that’s not from God’s

spirit why because it doesn’t agree with the character of God from the Bible

which says vengeance is mine says the Lord the voice that tells you not to

apologize when you’re at fault is not from God’s spirit either even if it

backs you up with verses from the Bible why because it doesn’t align with the

character of the Holy Spirit which is love sacrifice and

humility this is why you need to get close to your body Bible the more you

understand God’s word the more you’ll know about his character as the Bible tells us a lot about God and how he

operates develop your Bible reading and prayer habit the success of your journey

with God depends on it number two when God’s spirit speaks to your heart his

words come with peace and not anxiety another very important way to

know God’s voice is that whenever he speaks to your heart you’ll sense his peace as well God’s word doesn’t lead

you to confusion or Panic instead Like A Gentle Wind it blows away anxiety and

gives you Clarity and comfort no matter the situation involved the psalmist wrote in Psalm

I will listen to what God the Lord says he promises peace to his people his

faithful ful servants but let them not turn to Folly what God may be instructing you to

do may seem difficult or even impossible to the human mind yet in your heart

you’ll have an assurance of Peace the Bible calls it a piece that passes all

understanding so how do you listen to God’s spirit when he speaks to your

heart one silence the outside not noise

the world is full of many voices so in order for you to create an atmosphere

around yourself where you can easily listen to God’s voice you need to learn to shut out the

noise how do you do this give attention to the things that add more value to

your spiritual life instead of paying attention to the carnal things the more you feed your spirit the

stronger it gets and the stronger your spiritual sensitivity

becomes the more your heart can hear God without confusion or mixups with other

voices you can also silence the Noise by speaking the word of God out loud over

yourself habitually make it a habit to always speak God’s word and Promises over

yourself you’re more likely to hear God speak to your heart through the words

you’ve been speaking over yourself just like the devil uses the negativity

in your mind to speak to you too two spend time in prayer especially time

praying in tongues the more time you spend praying in tongues the more you subdue your mind

when you pray in tongues your mind isn’t participating but your spirit is at that

time God can speak to you and you will hear here this is one of the reasons the

devil is constantly trying to influence your prayer life negatively prayer is not just dashing in

and dashing out it’s communicating with God talking to and listening to God

speak during prayer you can become silent meditating especially when you’re

fasting most times we underestimate the power of fasting we think we should only

fast when we have a big problem or need power but the truth is that fasting is

meant to help you hear what God saying and give your spirit more strength over

the flesh if you’re going to succeed in your Christian journey and in life as a

whole dear Saint then you need to take these words to heart you have to start

listening so that when God’s spirit speaks to your heart you’ll hear and

you’ll obey in in these final days before the return of our Lord Jesus

Christ it is crucial for every Christian to be vigilant and watch out for certain

warning signs the first sign is the spirit of

slumbering this is a spiritual influence that weakens a person’s dedication to

spiritual matters leading to disinterest and lethargy towards God Jesus used the

parable of the virgins to illustrate how the king kingdom of God will be in these last days in this Parable Jesus

emphasized that both groups each comprising five virgins symbolized

Purity signifying the children of God this Parable wasn’t just a story but a

cautionary tale for believers who already possessed the light or in the case of the virgins the lamps and the

oil Jesus pointed out that all the virgins both wise and foolish fell

asleep while waiting for the bridegroom during their Slumber the announcement was made of the

bridegroom’s arrival they woke up and prepared their lamps to welcome him

however the foolish ones lacking extra oil symbolizing the grace and support of

the Holy Spirit couldn’t keep their lamps lit until the bridegroom arrived

when they sought to buy oil it was too late he had already entered the celebration with the virgins who were

prepared with extra oil another Parable Jesus shared on this subject was the

story of the wheat and the weeds in Matthew chap Jesus recounted a man who so good

seeds but awoke to find both good seeds and weeds in his field the spirit of slumbering renders

the believer passive or inactive towards matters they should be actively engaged

in this is one of the warning signs every Christian should be alert to in

these last days the distractions that seek to draw you away from prayer

studying the word attending church services or obeying God’s word are the

ones trying to lull you into Slumber a clear indication that you’re slipping

into spiritual Slumber when you realize that the things that once captivated you

no longer hold your interest you’ve begun to Slumber when you find it difficult to pray study your

Bible or fellowship with fellow Believers the Bible urges us to wake

from our Slumber and receive the grace of the Lord to empower us to be vigilant

and await his coming Ephesians to States this is why it is said wake up

sleeper rise from the dead and and Christ will shine on you be very careful

then how you live not as unwise but as wise making the most of every

opportunity because the days are evil therefore do not be foolish but

understand what the Lord’s will is one Peril of spiritual Slumber is that like

the farmer who sowed good seeds and then slept you give the enemy the devil room

to come in and plant seeds of distraction and destruction in your life

before you know it you might find yourself becoming comfortable with things you would never have tolerated

before this is a sign of slumbering when you Slumber you permit

the enemy to seow things in your life that eventually dull your spiritual

Sensitivity I pray that the Lord will Rouse each one of us from every slumbering state and shine his light

upon us in in jesus’ name another crucial sign to watch for in these last

days as a Christian is the second one the surge in sin and sinful

Behavior Jesus prophesied that in the end times iniquity would

abound nowadays you don’t need a television or the news to understand the

moral degradation that has permeated the world while the world has always been

spiritually desolate there used to be some solid moral values upheld in

society however today nearly every sense of morality has been

discarded every form of sin and Abomination imaginable is being explored

and normalized we may lament but it doesn’t change the fact that these are

unmistakable signs that the end is near though Christianity encompasses more

than just morality we understand that good moral conduct has a place in our worship of God the

Bible imparts much wisdom regarding morals because they are integral to our

faith the present level of sinfulness in the world serves as evidence and a

warning sign that the end is approaching and we must be vigilant Once Upon a Time certain things

were done discreetly and many were hesitant to engage in them due to societal

disapproval this served as a deterrent against numerous Temptations and

pressures however the enemy has since erected pillars of Temptation throughout

Society various forms of ungodliness and diverse Abominations are presented to us

daily even within the sanctity of our homes we must utter The Lord’s Prayer

lead us not into temptation but Deliver Us from all evil and ensure we steer

clear of anything that entices us to sin recognizing this warning should fortify

our resolve to maintain Purity and Holiness for God Our Redeemer for one

day we will stand before him to give an account of our lives and none of us

knows when that day will arrive another sign that demands the attention of every

child of God in these end times is the third one prioritizing self love love

over love for God Timothy cautions but Mark this there will be

terrible times in the last days people will be lovers of themselves lovers of

money boastful proud abusive disobedient to their parents ungrateful Unholy

Without Love unforgiving slanderous Without self-control brutal not lovers

of the good treacherous rash conceited lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of

God having a form of godliness but denying its power have nothing to do

with such people one of the underlying causes of sin and the heartbreaking decay in our

societies is the substitution of love for God righteousness and good morals

with selfish love and pursuit of personal gain I once heard a man say

that self fishness is at the root of all sin people love themselves too much to

deny themselves things God instructs them to avoid the flesh does not rever

God nor does it love him so it craves things without concern for whether God

sanctions them each time we yield to the desires of our flesh we commit a sin

against God the flesh prompts you to slander to harm others to retaliate

against those those who wrong you to love only those who love you in return and to pursue your own happiness even if

it does not glorify God look around you today the world vividly illustrates what

transpires when self-love eclipses love for God individuals have been encouraged

to embrace their carnal desires and we are now witnessing the consequences of this reign of the flesh unnatural

appetites various Abominations corruption crime and Injustice Against

Humanity many parents have turned to homeschooling their children due to the contamination infiltrating our

Educational Systems as daunting as it sounds this

state of affairs will persist until the Lord returns nevertheless as children of God

we must recognize that these are warnings from God signaling the end and

what did did Jesus instruct us to do he said in Matthew

– then will appear the sign of the son of man in heaven and then all the

peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the son of man coming on the Clouds Of Heaven with power and great

glory and he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call and they will gather

his elect from the Four Winds from one end of the Heavens to the other now

learn this lesson from the Fig Tree as soon as its Twigs get tender and its

leaves come out you know that summer is near even so when you see all these

things you know that it is near right at the door these signs serve the purpose

of reminding us that God Faithfully fulfills his word and never falters so if you find yourself in a

state of spiritual Slumber like The Virgins it’s time to to Rouse yourself and acquire extra oil to keep your light

burning ensuring you don’t lose your way these warning signs prompt us to stand

firm for the truth of God’s light and never give up regardless of the

circumstances they encourage us with the assurance that soon the trials and tribulations of this world along with

the challenges we Face will come to an end the Lord who promised his return

will indeed come and we will be with him forever be emboldened dear believer your

weight will be rewarded keep your faith in the Lord do not Despair and do not be

afraid he will come and he will rescue those who trust in him from the

contaminations of this world once and for all we are in the last days the days

preceding Christ’s return to G gather his followers to Heaven if there’s ever

a time to be vigilant it is now everything Jesus prophesied in the Bible

regarding his return is unfolding right before our eyes there’s no doubt that

the word of God and its prophecies have been accurate all along however only those whose eyes have

been opened By the Light Of Truth will perceive it the information presented in

this video is meant for those in Christ not for those without him if you haven’t

yet established a relationship with Jesus there’s no better time than now

you don’t even need to finish watching this video before you do so you can do

it right where you are pause this video and invite Jesus into your life to

become your lord and savior he’s not looking for flawless individuals who

have everything figured out out before they can be saved he already declared

anyone who believes in his Redemptive work for Humanity and calls upon him to

save them shall be saved Romans – it’s as simple as that I urge you to

take this step immediately then return to this video to heed the Urgent Message

about the signs every believer should be attentive to before Christ’s arrival you

see Jes Jesus’s impending return as the reigning King to gather his holy people

is a message of Hope for those who have yet to entrust their lives to him in faith however to those who are called

Believers and are genuinely walking in the grace and mercy of God this message

brings hope and good news every time you switch on the TV or

computer screen the news seems to reaffirm every word of God regarding the

imminent return of Jesus in fact Jesus himself informed us in

Matthew so also you when you see all these

things know that he is near right at the door hence when you hear the apostles in

their letters to the church cautioning us to always stay vigilant and watchful

so we’re not caught off guard by the great day of the Lord they are reiterating what Jesus already stated

these signs will proceed and serve as evidence that he is about to appear and take his church with him you must ensure

that you are not left behind due to being unprepared either due to careless living or the world’s deceit tempting

you to stray from the faith you profess so what are the signs every

believer should be on the lookout for before Christ’s return here are some of them false

claimants who come in the name of of Jesus is it wrong to go out as a servant

of God and a messenger of Jesus no it’s

not however Jesus cautioned us that in the days leading to his return there

will be a significant surge of individuals falsely professing to be from God but are in fact Impostors in

sheep’s clothing Matthew to their primary objective is to

deceive and Lead God’s people astray therefore it is imperative to he

Jesus’s Words Be watchful for them and make certain that you are not

deceived we have witnessed the emergence of these false teachers since the days

of the Apostles in the early church these are the ones who prioritize

their own desires over gods they show no concern for your soul they do not teach

the truth truth they either lie or preach half truths cloaked in hypocrisy

corrupting the minds of their followers they set a bad example and attempt to justify it by taking Bible

verses out of context they redefine Holiness and Purity permitting what God forbids and

dissuading people from doing what God commands Jesus stated that when you see

them proliferating know that his return is drawing near the appearance of wars

and threats of Wars this is another significant sign we

currently live in an era marked by constant fear of warfare numerous Nations have been torn

apart by Civil Wars and many others Teeter on the brink of conflict due to

the uncertainty of what might trigger hostilities more nations are forming

alliances against one another and it seems as though the world is spiraling into

chaos well I can tell you Jesus foretold that such a time would come Matthew

– you will hear of wars and rumors of wars but see to it that you are not

alarmed such things must happen but the end is still to come Nation will rise

against nation and Kingdom against Kingdom this is a sign of the impending

return of Jesus it may appear as another era of conflict but it is not Beyond

just being another era Believers in Christ must recognize that it serves as

a reminder that the Lord is returning so instead of joining those

who only focus on the latest news Trends political alliances government

complaints and speculations about which nation will dominate the the world Believers should ensure they are

preparing their hearts for the true king the Lord food shortages earthquakes and

other natural disasters we are witnessing this sign more than ever in history it has become

so commonplace that some national media Outlets no longer consider it

newsworthy earthquakes other natural disasters economic and food crisis

especially those brought about by natural disasters are the signs Jesus said would precede his return Matthew

to Nation will rise against nation and Kingdom against Kingdom there will

be famines and earthquakes in various places all these are the beginning of

birth pains it may not signify the end of the world yet but it is an indication that

we are nearing the Great day of the Lord and therefore we must be prepared

increased persecution of God’s people although persecution of the Christian

faith has been a recurring theme throughout history before the return of Jesus there will be an escalation in the

intensity of the persecution of Believers like never before in fact

governments societies and almost everyone surrounding Believers will turn

against us before Jesus returns Matthew then you will be handed over to be

persecuted and put to death and you will be hated by All Nations because of me we

may already witness this in some Nations and communities do not be deceived when they

attempt to use legal terminology the truth is that it is a direct attack on

the saints of God a sign our Lord stated would precede his coming

apostasy and division within the faith this is already unfolding around us

Believers are divided over what to believe and how to live many have mixed

their faith with the values of the world losing sight of who they once were and

what they once professed you can observe some Believers and see that they have forsaken their

faith and embraced the world Jesus for us that when the troubles or

distractions of this world lead many astray from the faith it is a sign that

the end is Drawing Near Matthew at that time many will turn away from the

faith and will betray and hate each other this is not the time to be fighting with fellow Believers dear

child of God but to wage war against the kingdom of darkness attempting to snatch

your brother or sister from the faith ES escalating wickedness and selfishness in

the world the magnitude of atrocities and violations of God’s word that we

witness today like never before our signs Jesus said would preced his coming

Saints should be on the lookout for them brothers and sisters betraying each

other people turning against themselves for personal gain people harming

innocent individuals just for personal gratification their various forms of

such Behavior are occurring Jesus stated that this is a sign to be vigilant for Matthew

because of the increase of wickedness the love of most will grow

cold the final sign is the encouraging news and hope for every believer before

Jesus returns the gospel will be preached all over the world and the church WIll begin to experience more

revivals than Retreats Matthew in this Gospel of the Kingdom will

be preached in the whole world as a testimony to All Nations and then the

end will come this is uplifting news because God will be working powerfully

through his sons and daughters across various parts of the world reaching out to lost and broken souls for Christ so

each time you and I share the gospel via social media on the streets in villages

and through every means possible we are acting as the signs ourselves hastening

the coming of the Lord Jesus said that when the gospel successfully spreads

throughout the Earth then the end will come the positive aspect of this is that

at the end of it all God emerges Victorious there is no scenario in which

the kingdom of darkness prevails in this mission yes there will be challenging

times yes there will be casualties and yes it may seem like the enemy is

winning but the truth is in the end Jesus tells us not to lose half because

he has already secured the victory no demon in hell can hinder the Lord’s

appearance and no devil can fought God’s Triumph hence the words of Jesus in John

I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace in this world you

will have trouble but take heart I have overcome the world the purpose of being

watchful for these signs is not to terrify or induce panic but rather to

find peace in the knowledge that one day soon your Lord and Master will appear

and bring enduring peace to all who sincerely and Faithfully call upon him

may your joy be multiplied dear believer you are on the Victorious side and your

hope in Jesus is secure so stand firm and ask God to Grant you grace through

the Holy Spirit to remain steadfast in the faith until the end and may that

blessed day find us anticipating the Lord and entering into his rest when he makes his appearance one of life’s

greatest privileges after salvation is to be called into God’s service do you

sense that God is calling you what does God’s calling look like are you

currently fulfilling God’s assignment for your life what might be hindering

you questions like these help us gain perspective and understand our place in

life and in God’s purpose for us first and foremost it’s important to

understand how God’s calling operates there are three types or levels of God’s

calling the call to Salvation this is a universal call by

default the Bible teaches that all have sinned and fall short of God’s

glory every person born of a man and woman into this world is a sinner in

need of the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ the call to Salvation invites every

person to accept Jesus as Lord for their salvation and to receive eternal life

Titus says for the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all

people to respond to this call all you need to do is believe and receive Jesus

as Lord over your life and turn away from a life of sin in Repentance the call to service or

Ministry this call is slightly more specific because it is only extended

ended to those who are saved in Christ only those who have become children of

God can offer acceptable service this Mir is the ancient practice where only

consecrated individuals from the family of Aaron could serve as priests in the

house of God no one else no matter how much they love God was permitted to

serve in the capacity of a priest today the Bible tells us that through Jesus we

we have been made Kings and Priests unto God therefore only those saved in Christ

are eligible to be called into God’s service answering this call means

Allowing God to use the gifts and talents he has placed within you Romans

says we have different gifts according to the grace given to each of

us if your gift is prophesying then prophesy in accordance with your your

faith if you read further in this chapter you’ll find other areas where

our gifts can be utilized number three the call to the

five-fold ministry this summons is not in any way

General it is designated solely For Those whom God intends to execute his

plan whether as Apostles prophets evangelists pastors or teachers if

Ephesians – asserts so Christ

himself gave the apostles the prophets the evangelists the pastors and teachers

to equip his people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith

and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ thus

the five-fold ministry is devoted to to Preparing the rest of us in Christ to fulfill our services according to the

work God has granted us the grace and capacity to perform now the word of God is explicit

concerning how our calling should be however today my emphasis primarily

revolves around you and God’s call on your life a significant indicator of

your devotion and fervor for God is the genuine Longing To dis ER and undertake

anything you believe would be pleasing to him when you love the Lord you might

find yourself eager to identify opportunities to serve him it could be

sharing your faith with as many people as possible or contributing in various

capacities within your local church it might involve becoming a financial supporter of God’s kingdom or

even supporting those engaged in the five-fold ministry regardless of the specifics this genuine

desire often arises naturally at times you might perceive it

as an overpowering urge to pursue God other times you might observe that your

inclinations are gravitating more towards this direction compared to previous

interests this in itself is a sign that God is beckoning you to serve it could

very well be the indic Ator that God’s calling is upon your life in addition to

the profound aspiration to engage in God’s work what other manifestations can

you expect when God calls you number one God May orchestrate encounters as a

means to affirm your desire and provide guidance on where when and how he wants

you to serve these encounters may come through dreams Visions or specific

messages from another believer such as your pastor or spiritual leader I recall

when as a young teenager newly devoted to Christ I was fervently eager to share

my faith with others my friends could all tell that something transformative

had occurred in me I was always on the lookout for tracks or small Publications

that I could share with anyone who seemed in need I also recall

participating in program RS and receiving prophetic affirmations of God’s calling on my life these

experiences affirmed the desire that God had already planted in my heart it was

undoubtedly Supernatural as some of those delivering the affirmations hardly knew me yet they were being used by God

to convey his calling to me additionally I had dreams visions and even heard the

Holy Spirit speaking to me about certain things that I am currently engaged in

it’s crucial to understand that when I speak of God’s call on you I’m not exclusively referring to a call to

become a preacher or Prophet I’m encompassing every form of service

within God’s kingdom be it as a Pulpit Pastor a field missionary or a volunteer

in youth ministry the Bible itself teaches that every one of us is indispensable and

contributes to the effective functioning of the whole body Corinthians

– emphasizes there are various kinds of gifts but the Same Spirit distributes

them there are different kinds of service but the same Lord there are

different kinds of working but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God

at work now to each one the manifestation of the spirit is given for

the common good further in verses –

so that there should be no division in the body but that its parts should have equal concern for each other if one part

suffers every part suffers with it if one part is honored every part rejoices

with it now you are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it so

this is the essence of what I’m conveying regardless of what God calls

you to do it holds as much significance as the calling of another which you

might perceive as loftier you are as anointed for your calling as they are

for theirs number two another discernable sign when God calls you is

the sense of peace that accompanies your service in that capacity it’s important to differentiate

between being called to a a specific role in being directed to leave behind all other Pursuits as often observed in

the full-time five-fold Ministry if for instance you’re a doctor

God may call you to serve as a pastor while still continuing your medical

practice however the core principle remains that you’ll find genuine peace

and contentment only in the area that God has unmistakably pointed out number

three a distinctive event is when others begin to affirm the same calling for you

I can recall people tagging me as a pastor even though I hadn’t officially taken on that role and was actively

involved in the choir they could discern my Zeal and the evident Grace and

gifting of God when it came to discussing the kingdom and Christ it’s

crucial to exercise caution and not allow others to pressure you into roles

that God hasn’t specifically called you to this affirmation should align with

what God himself has revealed or begun to reveal about his call on your life

number four you will notice an increase in the anointing within that specific

area of service I’ve witnessed individuals whom God was beckoning towards a life of

prayer and intercession exhibit a profound anointing that surpassed their natural abilities

imagine a person who struggled with speech fluency leading and praying with unwavering intensity without a trace of

stuttering it might be surprising to hear that they once struggled with speech but it’s the anointing associated

with their calling the same principle was demonstrated in the lives of David

the disciples and numerous others who were anointed for their specific calling

you might look at your yourself and harbor concerns about your capabilities to serve God I want to assure you that

you’re not alone in this sentiment God never called individuals

based on their perceived qualifications he was well acquainted with their shortcomings limitations and fears he

knew they would face challenges yet he called them why Paul elucidates this in

First Corinthians chap veres to

brothers and sisters think of what you were when you were called not many

of you were Wise by human standards not many were influential not many were of

noble birth but God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise

God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong God chose the lowly

things of this world and the despised things and the things that are not to

nullify the things that are so that no one may boast before him ultimately no

one can boast in themselves but all the glory must be ascribed to him while

being called by God is an immense privilege we must always bear in mind that his honor and Will are the focal

points of his calling not our personal aspirations another outcome might be

encountering spiritual attacks from Satan he recognizes that your response

to God’s call Will pose a threat to his kingdom hence he may instill fear and

self-doubt however do not be dismayed You Are Not Alone God has pledged that he will

always be with you through his holy spirit just as he was with David Moses

Daniel and the apostles he will never forsake you you can rely on him for strength when it is

needed and to use you until he is Thoroughly satisfied you can pray now seeking the

Lord’s guidance in Discerning his call on your life and be prepared to respond with obedience when he communicates it

this marks the commencement of a life filled with fulfillment have you ever felt as if

you’re in a valley of dry bones where your dreams relationships and lands seem

withered and forsaken let me reassure you that God is testing you preparing you for something

Superior you see God has a purpose for each one of us he has inscribed a

destiny over our lives and planted dreams in our hearts nevertheless the path to

realizing those dreams is seldom smooth it’s fraught with challenges and

trials this is because God intends to refine us and equip us for the place of

Promise he has set aside we often assume that serving God in Ministry guarantees

Comfort however the truth is anything worthwhile demands effort and encounters

opposition God allows difficulty on the path because he desires to draw from us

that which our adversary might exploit against us the good news is this God

cares too much for us to elevate us prematurely he knows precisely what we

require to fulfill our destiny and he is preparing us for it when the time is

right he will advance us to the place of Promise he has prepared I’ve always yearned for my life

to magnify God I aspire to lead a life that showcases God’s boundless power and

worthiness ensuring that he receives all the glory not me perhaps you share this

sentiment here is the key when God employs individuals to demonstrate his

power he employs trials not Comfort trials are God’s most prevalent tool as

they refine us and ready us for the place of Promise therefore if you find yourself

navigating a rough patch do not lose heart God is readying you for something

Superior trust in him and pray press onward you are closer to your place of

Promise than you realize God is testing you preparing you

for something better consider this God has a track record of employing

individuals who have faced significant trials recall the narratives in the

Bible of figures like job Joseph Daniel Moses and Paul they all confronted

extraordinary trials s yet God used them in extraordinary ways in fact we remember them for how

they confronted their trials were it not for their trials we

might not even know their names so if you aspire to be an instrument of God’s

glory you must be willing to face trials sometimes we must endure a

multitude of them yet here’s the thing God never said

oops or my bad he is always in command even when we fail to discern how we can

have confidence that God is laboring for His glory I acknowledge that pain can be

overwhelming but remember pain is not without purpose as Psalm advises be

still and know that I am God I will be exalted among all nations I will be

exalted in in the earth furthermore Romans assures us for those who

love God all things work together for good if you are growing in your

willingness to serve and love God irrespective of whether he grants your specific requests it is a positive sign

that he is preparing you to receive it trust him and persist in your

endeavors remember God is Not idly watching if events unfold he is

orchestrating them let’s dispel our worries about the outcome and trust that

God has a blueprint for our lives as we confront trials and tribulations let’s

mirror the faith Heroes who preceded us let’s stand firm knowing that God is

equipping us for something better and once the Tempest subsides we will emerge

stronger and more poised to serve God than ever before be courageous and

maintain your faith God walks with you every step of the way and he will never

abandon or forsake you rely on him and he will create a path even where it

seems impossible it’s simple to become fixated on something we desire fervently to the

extent that we neglect to consider if it truly aligns with God’s plan for our

lives James reminds us that at times our desires may be misguided and we need

to exercise discernment it is plausible that the blessing you are seeking is not in line

with God’s will for you at this particular juncture allow me to pose

this question are you prepared to have faith in God even when he responds with a no to your

petitions can you continue to love and serve him even if the blessing you yearn

for is not GR granted this constitutes the true Lous test of your faith and

relationship with him in Mark to we encounter a woman who sought a

blessing for her daughter initially Jesus appeared to decline her request

but she persisted and demonstrated that her intentions were sincerely aligned with God’s will she sought the blessing

for the glorification of God not merely to satisfy y her own

desires so if you feel that God is testing you and withholding blessings

take heart it is conceivable that he is preparing you for something even more

remarkable than what you initially sought have faith in him and prioritize

his will above your personal desires remember he understands what is

best for us even when we struggle to grasp it in the moment let us maintain a

robust faith and keep our hearts fixed on God’s plan for us he loves us and

desires the best for us even if it entails subjecting us to tests along the

way let’s embrace the journey and Trust his guidance knowing that he is

preparing us for something greater than we can fathom allow me to encourage you

by stating that much like how Jesus responded with a no to the woman in the Bible there are in instances when God

denies our requests to Foster our growth in faith and prepare us for something

better his intent is to bless us but he also desires us to possess the faith to

receive those blessings this occasionally necessitates traversing a period of testing during

which we must trust God even when it appears that he is not answering our

prayers in such moments our genuine character is unveiled

will we recoil from God or will we continue to trust him even when our

desires aren’t met God is not endeavoring to withhold blessings from

us he yearns for us to be equipped to receive them however here’s the

heartening news just because God initially answers with a no doesn’t imply that he won’t eventually respond

with a yes if we greet his no with faith and confidence he can employ this to ready

us for something even more extraordinary than what we initially requested sometimes we must navigate a

valley of decision where our dreams and desires are assessed yet it is Within These valleys

that we can cultivate our faith and develop into the individual’s God en

Visions if you’re feeling disheartened today because it appears that God is not

heeding your prayers I want to inspire you to persist in in trusting him

utilize this time to bolster your faith and transform into the person God

intends you to be and bear in mind God’s refusal is often merely a stepping stone

to his affirmation in Ephesians we are reminded that God desires to do

exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think nonetheless there’s a

caveat it’s in accordance with with his work within us this implies that the

more we permit God to work in us the more spectacular things he will accomplish through US hence during

seasons of refining it is imperative that we lean into and entrust ourselves

to the loving guidance of our dear savior Ponder on those dry bones in the

valley they symbolize the relationships dreams and marriages that many individ

indviduals have forsaken because they are unwilling to let go of their own desires and allow God to have his way

yet we need not permit our dreams to wither away in the valley rather we

should humble ourselves and strive to comprehend what the Lord is orchestrating around us yes it’s tough

going through seasons of refinement is no walk in the park nevertheless bear in

mind that on the other side of this refining period awaits a fresh perspective and a shower of new mercies

let’s begin by rejecting any sense of entitlement and refraining from demanding to be

understood instead let’s place our trust in God’s plan and purpose for our

lives he will Faithfully guide us and we will find strength as we press forward

so let’s humble ourselves under the mighty hand of of God in due time we

will be exalted and honored before a watching World God employs trials to

shift our Reliance entirely onto him he desires us to cling to him and find

peace in him alone and remember he is preparing us for something Superior something

abundantly beyond all that we could ever ask or think so if you’re in a season of

refining hold on steadfastly to your faith trust in the Lord and know that he

is orchestrating all things for your good don’t let your dreams fade away in

the valley instead fix your Gaze on Jesus and let him lead you to the other

side recall he desires to accomplish great things through you but it

commences with his work within you therefore let Sur surrender to him and

witness as he does exceedingly above and beyond all that we could ever ask or

think trials and weaknesses may be challenging to confront but they are

actually God’s way of preparing us for something greater when we navigate

through these tough times we learn to lean on him rather than on our own

strength we come to understand that it is God alone who deserves recognition

and honor we realize that he is our source of strength not our own

abilities in Corinthians to it is stated that God selects what is

considered low and despised in the world to nullify things so that no human being

might boast in the presence of God and you know what this includes our trials

and weaknesses God entrusts us with these challenges as a gift because he knows

they will ultimately draw us closer to him when Trials come your way remember

that they are not intended to break you but to shape you they are meant to

facilitate growth in your faith and Holiness and when you respond to these

trials with faith and Holiness you can take joy in knowing that you’re storing

up rewards in heaven but if you respond with fear and complaining you miss out

on that opportunity for reward remember God is testing you

because he is preparing you for something better so don’t lose heart

when things get tough instead lean into God and trust that he is with you every

step of the way he has magnificent plans for you and he will never abandon you or

forsake you in a world filled with numerous voices and Spirits seeking to

Comm commune with you you must listen when God’s spirit speaks to your heart

one of your most valuable assets as a Christian is the holy spirit he serves

as the conduit through which God the Father communicates with you in your spirit either directly through the word

or through other means sometimes the Lord may be speaking to you but because you don’t understand

nor know how to listen you may think he’s silent the Bible attests that there

are many kinds of languages in this world and each one has meaning not one

is without significance it’s also crucial to emphasize that even in our relationship

with God every word from God carries meaning instruction promise and intent

from God to us if we miss the meaning or the central message when God speaks to

our hearts we miss everything he intends to work in our lives I say this to all believers one of

the primary reasons we wander and struggle is that we often fail to let God lead us one of the most common ways

God leads his children is by speaking directly to our hearts how does God do this he speaks to

our Spirits through his own Spirit residing within us if you’re a child of

God the Holy Spirit dwells within you God doesn’t need to descend to

communicate with you he now resides within you through his Spirit Jesus

discussed the holy spirit with his disciples in John

to I have much to say to you more than you can now bear but when he the spirit

of truth comes he will guide you into all the truth he will not speak on his

own he will speak only what he hears and he will tell you what is Yet to Come he

will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you all that belongs to the

father is mine that is why I said the spirit will receive from me what he will

make known to you through the Holy Spirit the Lord illuminates the meaning

of the Bible through the Holy Spirit the Lord provides you with guidance

regarding your decisions and how you should approach them let me walk you

through this a bit to ensure you understand how the Lord communicates his words to you like I mentioned earlier

God speaks to his children in many ways he can use different methods to

communicate with you than he does with another person some individuals may

testify that God speaks to to them through dreams or visions another person may say he speaks

to them through an audible voice as if someone is with them in the same room

another may come and say they just sense a witness within their Spirits over

something they can tell that it’s God speaking to them about something

whichever way God uses one thing is clear regardless of how God speaks to

each one of us we must know how to recognize and pay attention when he speaks one of the distinguishing marks

of a Believer who is intimate with God is their ability to discern when he speaks to them by his Spirit Jesus said

in John my sheep listen to my voice I know them and they follow me when you’re

close to someone you can easily identify their voice no matter where you are I

remember the first time time I met a close friend of mine whom I’d met online we’d known each other for years

and shared Great Moments however we’d never met face to

face except through video calls and photographs yet it felt like we known

each other for ages that day I arrived in the city late at night due to traffic jams and he had

to come pick me up from my Camp stop when when I saw him coming from a

distance in the darkness I could tell he was the one even though I hadn’t seen

his face in the light yet all I could see was the silhouette of his image and

that was enough that is the true power of intimacy if you’re close to someone you

can recognize their voice and presence even if you can’t see them do you know

that you can get that intimate with God in fact in fact do you know that God

wants you to be that intimate with him he wants you to know his presence and

identify his voice he wants you to know how to differentiate between the voices

of the world the voice of the devil and the voice of his spirit in your heart

you may not know this but the devil also tries to speak to your heart just like

God does and this is exactly why you must listen and know how to obey when

God’s spirit is speaking to your heart if you can’t you’ll fall into many

troubles Jesus said in John the gatekeeper opens the gate for

him and the Sheep listen to his voice he calls his own Sheep by name and leads

them out when he has brought out all his own he goes on ahead of them and his

sheep follow him because they know his voice but they will never follow a

stranger in fact they will run away from him because they do not recognize a

stranger’s voice in these verses Jesus was confirming that there will be voices of

strangers who try to communicate with you but if you’re his follower you won’t

pay attention to those voices but rather run away from them when God’s spirit

speaks to you he communicates with your heart he doesn’t speak to your physical

ears I believe that one reason most Believers struggle to hear God is

because we want to hear him with our physical ears that’s not how God

communicates you see the Bible says that God is a spirit and must be worshiped as

one as a spirit he communicates with his children through their own spirit

when the spirit of God is communicating with you he uses the voice of your

Consciousness sometimes this may sound like you’re the one thinking to yourself but the truth is that God’s spirit is

speaking to your heart now the devil can do this too but there are ways to tell

if it’s God’s Spirits speaking to your heart or the devil number one when God’s

spirit speaks to your heart his words don’t contradict what the Bible says

this is the first and most important measure of God’s word remember that when

the devil tempted Jesus he quoted verses from the scriptures how did Jesus recognize and

counter the deception he revealed that Satan was taking those verses out of

context you see not every word taken from the Bible and echoing in your heart

is from God’s spirit you need to be able to connect the words being said with the

character and power of God the enemy or your flesh will not give you

Inspirations that agree with the character of God for example when you

hear a voice telling you to avenge yourself of a hurt that’s not from God’s

spirit why because it doesn’t agree with the character of God from the Bible

which says vengeance is mine says the Lord the voice that tells you not to

apologize when you’re at fault is not from God’s spirit either even if it

backs you up with verses from the Bible why because it doesn’t align with the

character of the Holy Spirit which is love sacrifice and

humility this is why you need to get close to your Bible the more you understand God’s word the

more you’ll know about his character as the Bible tells us a lot about God and how he

operates develop your Bible reading and prayer habit the success of your journey

with God depends on it number two when God’s spirit speaks to your heart his

words come with peace and not anxiety another very important way to

know God God’s voice is that whenever he speaks to your heart you’ll sense his peace as well God’s word doesn’t lead

you to confusion or Panic instead Like A Gentle Wind it blows away anxiety and

gives you Clarity and comfort no matter the situation involved the psalmist wrote in Psalm

I will listen to what God the Lord says he promises peace to his people his

faithful servants but let them not turn to Folly what God may be instructing you to

do may seem difficult or even impossible to the human mind yet in your heart

you’ll have an assurance of Peace the Bible calls it a piece that passes all

understanding so how do you listen to God’s spirit when he speaks to your

heart one silence the outside noise

the world is full of many voices so in order for you to create an atmosphere

around yourself where you can easily listen to God’s voice you need to learn to shut out the

noise how do you do this give attention to the things that add more value to

your spiritual life instead of paying attention to the carnal things the more

you feed your spirit the stronger it gets and the stronger your spiritual

sensitivity becomes the more your heart can hear God without confusion or mixups with other

voices you can also silence the Noise by speaking the word of God out loud over

yourself habitually make it a habit to always speak God’s word and Promises over

yourself you’re more likely to hear God speak to your heart through the words

you’ve been speaking over yourself just like the devil uses the negativity

in your mind to speak to you too two spends time in prayer especially time

praying in tongues the more time you spend praying in tongues the more you subdue your mind

when you pray in tongues your mind isn’t participating but your spirit is at that

time God can speak to you and you will hear this is one of the reasons the devil is

constantly trying to influence your prayer life negatively prayer is not just dashing in

and dashing out it’s communicating with God talking to and listening to God

speak during prayer you can become silent meditating especially when you’re

fasting most times we underestimate the power of fasting we think we should only fast

when we have a big problem or need power but the truth is that fasting is meant

to help you hear what God saying and give your spirit more strength over the

flesh if you’re going to succeed in your Christian journey and in life as a whole

dear Saint then you need to take these words to heart you have to start

listening so that when God’s spirit speaks to your heart you’ll hear and

you’ll obey
