When you a accelerate you need to shift to get to the next level. If you don't you could mess up what you have already done. Dr. Larry Timmerman.
ITS TIME TO SHIFT.
“Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.” Jonah 1:1-3 KJV
When you drive a car you have gears, don't shift some time and see how it goes. You have to shift at the right time to maximize power. Call on the name of the Lord. But.. Take it to a new level.
Part one, Jonah fled.
When you flee the will of God you will find a storm in your life.
Q: Are you going to sleep through the storm?
1962 one lady took prayer out of our schools, the church was asleep.
1973 the supremacy court said its was alright to kill unborn children, the church was asleep.
2015 same sex marriage was approved by 5 judges, the church was asleep.
The Bible is being marginalized, the church is asleep.
Christian businesses are being find and put out of business, the church is STILL asleep.
DO: The church must awaken, Jesus is our only hope today.
Churches are in decline, decently is being discarded, holiness is portrayed as out of date, the message is being changed to make everyone welcome.
Jesus is the way the truth and the life, there is NO other way. All religions are NOT the same. The different faiths don't have the same message.
Make a declaration to not take another step unless God goes with you, say
"I can't make it without you, I know the stone I am facing, I can't win without his presence, it is the end of struggle, and the beginning of out victory."
Some church's are moving away from the presence of God.
Everyone on the news can have their opinion, but not Christians. There is a storm coming.
Compromised churches are on the rise, a storm is coming.
People are calling on other gods, little G, or no God at all, a storm is coming.
Governments are making laws that infringe on your Christian rights, a storm is coming.
Q: Where is the Christian church in the midst of the storm?
IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP! - TIME TO CALL ON THE NAME OF GOD.
Not the little g God, but the capital G God.
It is time for the church to shout "My God is a big G God"
TIME FOR THE CHURCH TO PRAY.
Don't fear God will see us through.
“And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.” Ezekiel 9:4 KJV
