“So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:16 (HCSB)
This is a day of shaking, a day of separating. It is a day for deciding who you will stand with. It is a day to get over past wounds and offenses and stand on the Lord’s side, even with people who have disappointed, or perhaps hurt you. Get over your petty excuses for cancelling other believers. Many believers are sleeping in the light. Some are crying out, “wake me!” While others have chosen their self-induced coma! But Jesus warns, luke-warmness is not an excuse! He says He will spit those who are lukewarm, out of His mouth (Revelation 3:16)! Each of us has a choice, and neutral is not one of them. So today if you have chosen to be distant from other believers or cancel anybody including me, you need to be sure to take it to the Lord. Be sure you are simply not operating under the devil’s orders! If you are lukewarm, canceling others, standing in offense, you are definitely not operating under God’s orders! This is a day of unity, but God’s unity is pure and true, and is not full of compromise and woundedness! Let Him re-ignite your fire and let His fire purify and realign your heart with His ways!
Cry out for God to re-ignite the fire in your heart for Him, to renew your passion for Him and His ways. Ask Him to burn away any place of woundedness or disappointment from this past season. Ask Him to shake off of you any place of compromise and/or offense. Repent where you have cancelled any other brothers or sisters. Cry out to Him to “wake you up fully!” Ask Him to align you with others who are fiery wholehearted lovers of Jesus, and to remove those that chose to walk in rebellion. Pray this for your pastor and your church. Pray that true unity, kingdom unity, would be established in our city!
