Amos - Prepare To Meet Your God
Prepare To Meet Thy God This is how we lay up treasures. Preparation to meet God in peace is the supreme question in redemption. As God prepares to meet His people, as He prepares to speak with God as believers did in days of old, we must be prepared to meet Him. At his final Crusade, Billy Graham preached about Jesus' return to earth. Will you be ready to meet Him?.
No amount of contrary belief or unbelief can ever change this fact. No amount of theorizing or philosophizing will ever change this fact. No amount of objection or protesting will ever change this fact.
Prepare To Meet Thy God
It is one of the unalterable and eternally fixed decrees of an unchanging and unchangeable God. Good standing, good deeds, good relationships, attainments, etc.
- Preparing to Meet God
Works are only to increase our rewards in heaven. The meeting will be one of joy or grief, blessedness or anguish, triumph or defeat, salvation or condemnation. There is an absolute desire to meet God in all people.
But there is no hope for a peaceful meeting without preparation. Because no one in his natural condition is fit for heaven. Heaven itself would be the hottest hell for the soul that would enter without preparation. Once all of these things were accomplished, God showed up on the mountain.
How do we prepare to meet the Lord or do we make preparation at all? Many have not spent any time with God all week. When was the last time you shut off the TV and spent some time praying or reading His Word? When was the last time you thanked Him for all He has done?
When was the last time you decided you wanted to change so much that you turned down your plate as a form of sacrifice? We say all the right spiritual things like how we want God to bless and how we want Him to move but what preparation are we making to see this happen?
What atmosphere are we creating for Him? I encourage you to think about a normal Sunday service.
God's Hidden Nuggets for the Endtimes
Has any time been spent in prayer before the service to invite God in? Does God feel welcomed in our services? He will not come in where He does not feel welcome.
I pray that each one of us develop the attitude that every time we go to church, we are preparing to meet the Lord. There is no sense in going to church if you do not believe He is going to be there. Some make inadequate preparations.
Preparing to Meet God - liahona
Secular education is not proper preparation to meet God. He "was educated in all the learning of the Egyptians, and he was a man of power in words and deeds," Acts 7: We will be no more prepared to meet God in judgment than Moses was with only what man can teach us.
Denial of the afterlife by the arguments of atheism, the self delusion of either rationalism or emotionalism, or the false comforts brought by false doctrines are all equally inadequate. Even morality, which many practice to the point of penance, fasting and prayer, without the truth that is known only in the gospel, is inadequate. We can never be good enough to meet God on our own terms or accomplishments. By keeping it according to Thy word.
For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil. But having begun your preparations is not the same as completing your preparations.
Consider Noah, who "in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household. Do you think he would have been willing to risk his life and the lives of his family without making all the preparations that God said to make? But how many Christians risk their souls with so much left undone, inside and out, when it come to morals, faithfulness, and service?
How many need to heed of the warnings of the Lord?
