TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I am taking you into new places where even those you might not like will hear how good I am from your own lips. I am putting a burning fire within you to tell others of My goodness. It’s time to go!
THE FAMILY BUSINESS
I refuse to be the prophet of hell, bringing bad news to the unsaved. The church is not in the angel of death business. We’re in the blood of the Lamb business because that’s the family business, and business is good!
And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” – Luke 2:49
God is not indifferent. God loves people. He is not mad at anybody. Nobody.
“Well, I’m mad at everybody, so God has to be mad at everybody.”
God is not created in your image! The Bible says Jesus Christ reconciled the world unto the Father at the cross. The word “reconciliation” means the removal of all hostility. At the cross of Jesus, God put everything He’s mad at us about on Jesus.
Does this mean the world is saved? No. It means the world can now approach the Father for redemption. The upgrade of reconciliation is redemption.
How can you say, “Run to the Father because, by the way, He’s going to squash you and bring judgment because He’s so mad He might run over you with a tornado”?
You don’t! The message should be clear. Because of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, nobody has to be afraid to run to the Father for redemption. Don’t get in the way of that because you dislike or disagree with someone. God loves them as much as He loves you. He’s infinite. You have all of Him, and they need all of Him!
Today is a good day to be in the family business. Spread the Good News to the lost – even to your enemies – and watch reconciliation in action.
