"Awakened Dust"




"And the Lord formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."  There was an Awakening in the beginning, and there will be an Awakening in the end!  From the beginning of time, Almighty God has had problems with "sleeping souls."  He lives for the day that His Church becomes "Awakened Dust!" 

"And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them
asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch
   with me one hour?"
(Matthew 26:40)

It's an age old problem; the Lord is still asking the question, "What, could you not watch with me one hour?"   Prayer is the link between heaven and earth, the completion of the circle of God, the impetus that causes all things Godly to occur, the visitation of Angels and the dispelling of devils, the power for miracles, signs and wonders, the strength of the saint, and the horror for the devil, the mountain climber of faith, and "see" mail from heaven!  "Watching" on our knees takes us around the globe in seconds, provides for the missionary in Africa, the praying persecuted Pastor in Russia, and the struggling apostle in Brazil.  Prayer makes everything happen; without it, nothing happens!

                                       
Wise Virgins

           
Foolish Virgins

"Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise and five were foolish.  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.  And at midnight, there was a cry made, Behold the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him."  

The scripture states all the virgins arose and trimmed their lamps, but the foolish virgins' lamps went out and they asked the wise to lend them oil, but the wise told them "not so, lest there not be enough for us and you," and they told them they should go and buy for themselves.  While the foolish went to buy, the bridegroom came and took the wise with him to the marriage, "and the door was shut."  The foolish virgins came asking the Lord, "Open to us."  The Lord said, "I know you not."  The moral of the story: "Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh."  

The oil is symbolic of the Spirit and anointing of God.  The lamp goes out when we are not full to overflowing with prayer, fasting, consecration, holiness, and power in the Holy Ghost before God!  We are not "once saved, always saved."  Paul said, "But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." (I Corinthians 9:27)  He was saying, in essence, as long as we are in the flesh, in earth, we must daily live a life of repentance, because "in our flesh dwelleth no good thing," "our hearts are desperately wicked; who can know it?" 

"Now when the centurion saw what was done, he
glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man."
(Luke 23:47)



Anyone can be "Awakened!"  When Jesus died on the cross and said, "It Is Finished;" darkness fell over the earth, rocks split, lightning struck, the temple veil was rent, and the previously mocking centurion fell on his face and glorified God!  Sometimes it takes an earthquake, a hurricane, a fire, a flood, wonders in the skies, a miracle healing, a prophetic headline, or a blinding light that knocks us off our horse  ...  to "SEE" God!  Almighty God knows how to shake, stir, move, illuminate, reveal, and snap His creation to attention in a second in time; if He wants our attention, He can get it  ...

Awake, O Earth, prepare ye the Way of the Lord;
bow before His majesty
It's time to pray, fast and repent of our sinful ways,
our indulgence and satiety
Jesus Christ is coming in the clouds; He comes as
a thief for treasures of value
He asks while there's still time; Have you obeyed
Acts 2:38; Oh, tell Me; Have you?
Trim your lamps, let your oil be full, and come and
watch with me one hour
Awaken your soul, be strong in spirit, alert to the times,
 and filled with all power
There's no time for folly, no place for complacence,
for deep calleth unto deep
The trumpet will sound; the dead will rise, and you'll
be caught away  ... if you're not asleep!




We are the generation who will see the Rapture of the Church, the coming of the Lord, and the fulfillment of all things.  We know this because prophecy is in our headlines; the Bible is manifested daily in Israel; Matthew 24 is occurring before our eyes; Ezekiel 38 and 39 are imminent; One world government and One world currency are being discussed and anticipated  ...  We must be Awake!

"After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also,
and sent them two by two before his face into every city
and place, wither he himself would come."
(Luke 10:1)

We heard You, Lord!  Seventy are being sent out; homes are becoming churches, blogs are electronic preachers, the Church is marching in unity all over the world  ...  we're sounding the call  ...  it's being heard around the world; we're no more asleep; we have become "Awakened Dust!"

"From Glory To Glory!"



"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the
glory of the LORD rises upon you."
(Isaiah 60:1)

Look up, O weary saint of almighty God, for the Lord has
opened the heavens; breathe in His Glory  
You are His shining vessel, filled with His power, walking in
 His beauty, and you are now worthy  
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, washed clean by His
name and His Word; you stand tall in His light  
"Come out from among them," says the Lord, "and be separate
  unto me;" climb higher with all of your might
For you are chosen and called out, holy and mighty in power and
  wonders, used in the portals of aura
You are no longer in the lowlands of despair, you have reached
 the apex above the bitter waters of mara
It was a climb on your knees, fasting and praying for light to come
 and I AM here, now, lifting you from darkness  
You have entered a new dimension, beyond your last glory, and
 your air is lighter; your joy is unharnessed  
The valley had you bound, but when your hands reached over
 the crag, you felt the newness and the beauty  
Your strong endurance brought you here, with your sword and
  your armor; you went beyond the call of duty
There are mysteries to unfold, exploits to render, and the Word to
  perform among the Nations for the Lord
It's a New Day, a new aroma in the portals of the Lord's presence,
 and it's time for a New mindset and a New chord
The angels are restless, the trumpets are tuning, the hoofs are
  pawing, and the Lord searches to and fro  
He's looking for those who climb higher, dig deeper, see further,
  crave stronger; the Lord's mind they seek to know 
A matter of the heart, it is, of those who weep alone, those who
  strum their songs to the Lord, in soulful tones  
And they stalk Him in the night, begging Him to converse, as He
 arrives in the moonlight, responding to their groans
It's all about the God of Glory wanting a soul mate to walk with
  Him on waters, and go where no man has gone
Foregoing the earthly pleasures, and traverse another world in
 measure, with the Lord in the early dawn
It's simple, you see; the lover of man's soul longs for one to hear 
  with Vision, and See with sound, a paradoxical story
Of God Almighty "in earth as it is in heaven" with His creation,
  and take him "From Glory to Glory."

"End To Begin!"




"For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. 
And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith."
(1 John 5:4)

"For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so
 cometh as a thief in the night."
(I Thessalonians 5:2)



We're coming to the end of the Church Age,  the beginning of Glory for the "caught up" Christian, and the beginning of judgment for a sinful unrepented earth.  That day will be a day like no other!  The headlines will read, "Millions missing!"  Car crashes, plane crashes, train derailments, people wandering the streets crying, Nations in an uproar, Church buildings full  ...  Huh?  Oh yeah, the Churches will be full of unbelievers, who now are seeking, searching, weeping, wondering, scared to the marrow of their bones  ...  Why?  Their families, friends, acquaintances  ... are missing!  What happened?  Where are they?  People from every walk of life are missing  ... firefighters, police, officials, Senators, housewives, bosses, employees, preachers, children, babies  ... all missing, and they are unaccounted for.  It will be as it was prophesied; it will be a day like no other; it will be the day the earth gave up the righteous to the Lord in the air, and the remaining in earth entered into judgment; it will be a day of much deep pain, heartache, and tears for those who are left and "know;" it will be chaos and terror like the world has never known.  Guess What?  It happened  ...  Jesus Christ came  ... "like a thief!"

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in
Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught
up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
(I Thessalonians 4:16-17)

The Lord Jesus Christ will come like a thief in the night; He comes for something of value; He comes to remove His own before He pours out judgment on the earth for those who did not repent of their sins, for those who loved pleasure more than holiness, for those who ignored the Word of God and did their own thing, and for those who did not receive His love, His gospel, and His redemption message.  Jesus Christ is a Just God; He does not punish the righteous with the sinners.  He knows what's coming and He is pushing His Church to gather in all who will come, before it's everlasting too late.  He loves us so much; He is not willing that ANY be lost or perish.

"Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it,
and repent.  But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief,
 and you will not know at what time I will come to you."
(Revelation 3:3)


No man knows the day or the hour the Lord will come.  But, He will come  ...  and we must be ready! 

"Let me tell you a secret. Not all of us will die, but all of us will be changed-
in a moment, faster than an eye can blink, at the sound of the last trumpet.
Indeed, that trumpet will sound, and then the dead will be raised never
to decay, and we will be changed."
(I Corinthians 15:51-52)

Don't you think it would be wise of us to heed the call, get ready, and prepare for this event, repent, be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins, be filled with the Holy Ghost and speak with tongues as the Spirit of the Lord gives us the utterance?  It's not a hard thing He asks us to do; it's not difficult; it's just three things, and then live holy until the sound of the trumpet.  The Bible says it will be like it was in the days of Noah before the flood came and destroyed everyone.  They were eating and drinking, marrying, and they were warned over and over, but Noah was mocked, laughed at, and ridiculed as he patiently built the Ark.  Preachers today are ridiculed and mocked  ...  just recently a well known News Journalist asked this question on the air, "Where is the sign of His coming?"  They laughed then; they laugh now, but God doesn't make idle comments.  If He said He will come as a thief in the night  ...  He will!  And, if He said He loves You with an everlasting love  ...  He does!  If He said He Is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings  ...  He IS!

There is a God who rules the universe, who said to Job, "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the world?"  He did not leave us without information, without instruction, without the impetus to make our hearts, spirits, souls, and bodies ready for Him.  The Holy Bible tells us all we need to know, how to be ready, how to stay ready, and what to expect.  The Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are the gospels and they tell us about the virgin birth, life, death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The Book of Acts is where the Church began and this is where we go to find out how to be saved (Acts 2, Acts, 8, Acts 10, and Acts 19).  The Books of Romans to Jude tell us how to live holy "after" salvation, after repentance, baptism in His name, and the infilling of the Holy Ghost.  The Book of Revelation is the fulfillment of all things.  The Old Testament is a prophetic foretelling of the New Testament.  We have been well informed, and very well prepared for the One in whom we place our eternal souls.



You say, "I've heard about the end as we know it for years."  The people of that day heard about the flood for over 100 years in Noah's day too.  Many of the prophecies in the Bible have come to pass just as they were prophesied.  This is not to scare anyone; we prepare when the Weather forecasters tell us a tornado is in our area and to take cover; we prepare when hurricanes are shown to be headed for our States and cities; we prepare for cold weather and heat waves; we prepare for weddings and funerals; we prepare for just about everything we do in this life  ...  Don't you think we should prepare for the place we will live for all of eternity, the Rapture of the Church to make a way of escape for us before judgment comes? 

 

What should we do?  Get Ready, stay ready, get everyone we know and we see ready; He's coming  ...  It's the "End To Begin!"
