Scripture reading: Hebrews 11:8-10

We are now entering into the end of the Great Tribulation, which is the worst part of the tribulation and when many things are going to happen, like losing our houses, our bank accounts, and our present way of life that we know and love so much. In this time, we must still hold fast to the promises of God and carry on His work for the deliverance of men. God is strengthening us at this time in our walk with Him. God is not expecting us to do it by our own will, but He is expecting us to believe Him.

Somebody was sharing about Abraham and depicted him as an ordinary person, which he was. But at the same time God testified of him several times in the Scriptures that “Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.” Abraham was righteous in his generation, although the requirements in his day were not what God would require of us today. The Blood of Jesus was not yet shed and the Holy Ghost was not yet given. How blessed we are!

In order for us to be found in the same heavenly places where faithful Abraham was, we have to be part of what the Bible calls the Firstfruits company. Some of us might be saying to ourselves, “I do not know if I am in the Firstfruits company. I do not know if I am worthy. I do not know if I will make it. I probably am not because I slipped and fell last week, and nobody knows. The people in church do not suspect that I get mad sometimes, and curse other times, etc., etc.” All these thoughts are designed by the devil to convince us that we are not of God. But the truth is that for us to be worthy, we only have to trust God. God has a different design. God’s design is that by faith we can lay hold of His promises and that by faith we can enter into His everlasting Kingdom. If we sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ; and with the remission of sins comes purity and holiness.

God is not asking you to do it by your integrity or by your own personal character. God is asking you to put your character, integrity and abilities aside, by faith lay hold of the promises, and like the publican (Ref. Luke 18:13) to drop on your knees and admit your unworthiness. Ask God to help you and to save you from the traps and snares of the devil; and say, “Lord, I believe; help Thou my unbelief.”

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, April 1997, pg. 14-15)

Thought for today: Remember it is by faith that we can lay hold of His promises and by faith we can enter into His everlasting Kingdom.

Scripture reading: Matthew 5:48

Do you know that you can read one passage of Scripture a thousand times and every time you read it, it is new? Some people say, “Oh, we have heard all this before. We do not need to go to conventions because we are just going to hear the same old time thing all over and over again.” But the truth is the Word is new every morning! Great is Thy faithfulness, oh God! Hallelujah!

Let me tell you, brethren, something about Abraham. Abraham was righteous. It was not because he lied. The Bible was careful to tell you how Abraham lied, and the Bible was careful to tell you how Abraham had his maid at the behest of his wife. The Bible is careful to tell you these things to show you that Abraham was not a superman. But, he believed God. He believed God, and God counted it to him for righteousness! How are you going to be righteous? You have to believe God. You have to do what God tells you what to do. You have to move in the way God tells you to move.

We have to know that we are being created. The moment Abraham lifted the knife and decided to drive it down into his son, a new life came into him! God said, “Now, I know.” Do you think there is anything God does not know? Brethren, the things that are happening to you in life are happening because God is tempting you to walk in an area that will create in you SOMETHING NEW! Hallelujah! The Spirit of God, moving upon David, said, “Lord, create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me.”

We are being created in the likeness of God. We are being made in the likeness of God. How are we being made? How is it happening? Everything you do, everything you think is part of the creative process. It will either hinder the creation or it will foster it! There is a delicate point in the creation of anything, when it can either turn one way or the other. We are at that point where God is trying to birth Christ within us, and the world is trying to birth Satanism (the devil himself) within us. And the one hinders the other!

May God help us, brethren. May God help us to understand the truth that we are in a point of creation. Everything you see in the movies, everything you see in the world, everything you see in your mind—it has a process. IT IS EITHER ASSISTING OR RESISTING THE PROCESS OF YOUR CREATION IN THE IMAGE OF JESUS CHRIST! Amen!

So, we have to be careful. God is saying to you, “Be ye perfect.” Why would God say that to me if I have no power to be perfect? The power is in my hand, either to submit to the perfecting process, or to resist it. Now, how can it be, that I resist the process, and I do not even know what I am doing? It is because, if I submit to the devil, he will cause me to resist it without my even knowing. Therefore, I become a fool! An innocent fool who resists God without knowing that I am resisting God.

God is saying to us as a people, “Rise up, rise up, shake yourself from the dust.” Claim your rightful place in God. Hold on to the good that God has done, the good that He has given you, the way that He has prepared for you to escape out of the dust! Hallelujah! Don’t you see that He wants a lively Body? God looked down and He saw a people rising up in the end of time who will serve the Lord. The Scripture calls it the “generation of the righteous” (Psalm 14:5). In other words, a generation of people who will obey God! Glory to God! God is at this time finding people who He can flow through. If God flows through you, you become righteous because you are doing exactly what God wants you to do. That is righteousness; that is holiness. And when you do it for a time, it becomes a habit and God calls you holy. He said, “Be ye holy, for I am holy.” May God help you and bless you.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, November 1999, pg. 15-16)

Thought for today: Let God flow through you so that you may become righteous. The power of your creation in the image of Jesus Christ is in your hand.
