This is a Day for the saints of God to take seriously what it mean to follow Jesus in serving the Father in the power of the Spirit.
It is a walk that separates one from the world and even from much of what is known as “the Church.” A walk that separates one unto Creator God and His Son Jesus, the final judge, for the sake of carrying out the work that He left for the Church to do until He returns. A work that has largely been ignored, and when attempted, has largely been done so by the power and program of man rather than that of God.
It is work that is to be of a grand nature. Of such a nature that it stands out as the work of God, done in His way and by His power and for His glory. Work that draws the hearts and souls of men to Him and which impacts both the worker and those who hear his word, for eternity.
It is work that unites the workers around one task and one Master in a way that diminishes their petty disagreements on theological topics that separate them today but which have no impact upon eternity. A separation that weakens them and dilutes their message and gives their enemies legitimate reason to dismiss them as lacking integrity and being worthy of attention.
The Day of the Lord is near. The “soon” of 2000 years ago is now 2000 years closer than when spoken. It was the word of God, not the word of man. He meant it for then and He means it for now, yet we dismiss it as irrelevant.
“Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, 15 but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; 16 because it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.’” I Peter 1:13-16 nasb1995
