KEY VERSE: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it” (ISAIAH 2:2).
An atheist was invited to a church by his neighbour. The middle-aged man always felt that Christians were wasting their time. In the church, the presiding minister asked everyone to ask God for just one thing. The neighbour prayed for one thing: the atheist’s repentance.
But the atheist was angry, left the church and rushed to a bar where he ordered for a beer. On tasting it, it was like poison in his mouth. Going to another place, it was the same experience. He decided to go back to the church. On getting to the church this second time, he noticed tears dropping down his cheek. Something had happened to him. From then, he became a Christian and was later ordained a pastor.
The children of Judah fell from grace to grass because of their pagan practices. They had relied on soothsayers and worshipped the works of their own hands. Nevertheless, their land was full of silver and gold, signifying God’s blessings. He also promised them through Prophet Isaiah that His house would be established in the top of the mountains for all to see and come in. Pagan worshippers and all those who violated His word shall flow into this house to obtain forgiveness, and many of them would be willing to drag others to His temple to learn of His ways.
We are in the last days. The Church is a city set on a hill which cannot be hidden. It is also the light that attracts sinners to the Saviour (Matthew 5:14).
All nations – white, black, rich, poor, young and old – are flowing into it in repentance. Spiritual renewal and revivals are happening. Many sinners are coming to Jesus and are convicted by the Holy Spirit. Are you left out of this move?
The Holy Spirit is still convicting Andrew converting sinners these last days. Whosoever, therefore, shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Make hay while the sun shines.
