CLOSE the Revolving Door
Matthew 12:43-45 (Amplified Bible)
43 But when the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, it roams through dry [arid] places in search of rest, but it does not find any.
44 Then it says, I will go back to my house from which I came out. And when it arrives, it finds the place unoccupied, swept, put in order, and decorated.
45 Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and make their home there. And the last condition of that man becomes worse than the first. So also shall it be with this wicked generation.
This Word has been marinating in my Spirit. God is not pleased. The saddest part is that His wrath is against those in the Church…those in leadership…those in the ministry. God is saying, “Close the revolving doors in your life!”
Saints of God, we have taken advantage of God’s grace far too long. Where is the holiness? Where is the sanctification? Where is the RELATIONSHIP with our Heavenly Father? So many are professing His name, but God says many of us have a form of godliness, denying the power thereof. Many of us are playing with God, because we don’t really believe He will spread His wrath. We don’t believe God truly has the power to wipe us out or expose us before the church and NATIONS!
Many are sitting on the pedestals of ministry – national and international fame. From the most famous down to the smallest of churches, there are people claiming a part in the ministry that need to SIT DOWN. "Stop thinking that success is measured by the size of your ministry, the type of car you drive or the size of your house. Are you saving souls? Are you saved yourself??!! Can you hear my voice? Do you walk in my will? I am not impressed with physical things. I want your heart. I am moved by your faith! Repent, Repent, Repent!!! Stop returning to your vomit, as the dogs do!" Stop living in sin. Stop apologizing just to return and do the same thing again. Unclean habits MUST CEASE. Where is your victory in Christ??!!
Addictions must cease. “Choose ye, this day, whom you will serve,” says God. Give up the fornication, and DON’T TURN BACK. Give up the nicotine, and DON’T TURN BACK. Give up the lying, cursing and backbiting, and DON’T TURN BACK. My God! Stop the witchcraft and divination, and DON'T TURN BACK. “I am shutting the revolving doors,” says God. A day is coming where the people of God will choose sin over the Heavenly Father, and will not be able to return again. As the Word says, those demons will return with many more to inhabit the same space. There will be no escape. God will turn them over to a reprobate mind!
Obedience is better than sacrifice!!! Be obedient. Repent, and do the work of the Lord. Sanctify yourselves. Seek God like never before. Fast, pray and study the Word. Fight in the Spirit. Fortify yourselves, for a mighty battle is at hand! Take on the full armor of God! Close the revolving doors in your life…or God, in His wrath, will do it on your behalf.
Praise God. Saints, I beg you... If this Word is for you, take heed and be obedient. Be blessed!
