Thought for the Day 2

"Dont get this mixed up. You are not going to get more saved than you are right now becaue you gain knowledge and wisodm and get into a deeper realtionship with Gods.. This is not about intellect, i. e., 'The smarter people get more of God.' That isn't true. This is not about works, as if by working you could achieve or receive salvation. That isn't true.  This is about moving forward with God and becoming as close and intimate as possible with God. It is about understanding, that only by growing in Christ can you move forward and enjoy more of what God has available.

  • Do you remember a time when you did not know Christ?
  • Do you have the same power and authority over your life that you had then?
  • Since you came to a personal relationship with Christ, has your faith increased?
  • Recently, have you learned or received from God new truths or revelation that has helped you develop a better understanding of yourself and increase your faith? 
OK. God is pouring out His Spirit in these last days. For those who don't think it is the last days or for those who just haven't given it much thought, that's OK, but God's foreordained timetable for the length of years that He intends to allow mankind to function under this current dispensation (the dispensation of grace) is coming to an end.  And at this end of the age or the completion of the dispensation of grace, there will be an escalation of all things. Everything will increase, multiply, advance, escalate at rapid rates, more rapid than any other time in all history. The close - or the end of the age will be ushered in by God, very, very fast."
