8bc72ed7-copy-copy[1]“He restores my mind, and with His healing hands, I’m made whole He makes my life complete My reunion is so sweet I’m a living testimony that God restores” (Darwin Hobbs, God restores) Yes my friends God restores, But something I heard in church yesterday, someone stated “if you can’t spend twenty four hours with God” in these last days of the History of mankind “when many false prophets [are] appearing and deceiving many people.

[And] the increase of wickedness [has abounded to astronomical levels], while the love of most grows colder and colder” Matt. 24:1-13 (KJV) “How can we spend an eternity in the presence of a pure and holy God” the end of (v,13) states “but the one who stands firm to the end will be save.”

In the context of our salvation firm would mean “securely fixed in place, steadfast not unwavering, about if it is God, or god we serve. My friends, eternity is a long time, it’s never ending. Isaiah 66:23 (KJV) tells us “From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the Lord.”

My friends, it is time we begin to question, are we truly preparing for eternity. Just to say God restored me, are only thTY4O6F82void or ineffectual words with not much substance if restoration does not take us to another level, because, “this to will pass” in this ever-changing world we live in.

So restoration, must be about a daily encounter we have with the invisible God that tells us “miracles still happen,” and now that I have found who He is, and what His will for my life is, nothing else in this world matters. For Paul it was on the Damascus Road, “For one hundred and twenty disciples it happen when they spent ten days in the upper room and they received the promise of the Holy Spirit.”

“When Christ took human nature upon Him, He bound humanity to Himself by a tie of love that can never be broken by” [“death nor life, neither angels nor demons, our fears for today or our worries about tomorrow. Not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. Rom. 8:38-39 (NLT)] (White, Steps to Christ, p 72-73) But self can. Yes, it’s our choice that decides to make that separation.

Our choice that says, I am a willing testimony that Christ restores, but I am still not willing to enter daily “through that small gate and [walk that] narrow road that leads to life, that only a few are willing to find. My friends “The final movements” of what is taken place in our world today “will be rapid ones” and restoration must be daily.

psalm_23_31[1]Seeking God’s presence and His will for our life through His word and Spirit must never be optional. “At this time a living testimony is to be borne in the lives of God’s professing people, so that the world may see that in this age when evil reigns on every side, there is yet a people who are laying aside their will and are seeking to do God’s will.

In addition, a people in whose hearts and lives the law of God is written” (White, In heavenly places p 347) And this can only happen if our time with Christ on this earth is only and extension of our time with Him throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.
