Scripture reading: Psalm 139:23-24

Matthew 25:6, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.” Let me tell you a little bit about midnight. Moses knew when it was going to be midnight. The children of Israel knew exactly what time it was; they were told what to do. It was very easy for them to have the lamb prepared, eat the meat with their waist girded and their bags packed, and ready to go at midnight. Amen. There was midnight when Jesus Christ ate the Passover with the brethren, and they knew exactly when midnight was going to be. But in the fullness of the word “midnight,” we do not know when midnight will be. It is only the Spirit of the living God in us that is telling us when midnight will be. We know we are pretty close. Very, very close to it. I would say we are close in just a few years, and yet I can be wrong, for I never thought that the war would have started from now. That means that midnight can come anytime according to God’s calendar. At midnight, the world will face annihilation. We, the people of God, will be called upon to have our lamps burning bright as the five wise virgins; for I believe that there are more souls that are going to be saved in the destruction than at any other time.

We are living in the end of time, time when God says, “You must begin to look about your lamp and your vessel. Make sure your lamp is bright, for it is only this way that you will be delivered.” There are three types of people: Those who take the mark of the beast, those who take the mark of God, and those who are killed. If God wants to save you and you will not take the mark of the Holy Spirit in your forehead, in your mind, so that you can resist the mark of the beast, in order to deliver you from the mark of the beast, what would God do? He will allow you to be killed, to be saved. That is what He did with the people in the flood, at the time of Noah. The Bible says, in the time of the flood they all drowned, only eight people were saved. Yet, the Bible tells us that when Jesus Christ went down to hell, He brought out people from the flood who were to be saved, who heard His voice. They heard the message from Noah, but they didn’t pay heed, and got killed, but they were saved (1 Peter 3:20).

So, God is telling us something. People, search your soul! For God’s sake, brethren, search your soul, stop searching other peoples’ souls, but search your own soul, and say, “See if there be any wicked way in me. Cleanse me, Lord.” Look into your emotions; look at what your emotions are doing. I don’t need to name it out, but the emotions are leading some of you into dark areas. Look at your emotions, and say to your emotions, “I don’t like that feeling. I don’t like how I felt.” Oh, yes! “I don’t like the temptation that I had when I was talking to that sister, or to that brother.” Nobody knows. You and God know it. “I don’t like that temptation.” Go to God with it secretly and say, “Deliver me, oh, Lord God, for in Thee do I put my trust. Let me never be confounded or put to shame.” Hallelujah.

We look around and see the stars falling and yet, we do not know that it is the Bible coming to pass. We see the ministers which are the stars, falling. I read of different ministers, some arrested for being adulterers, some pedophiles. They are falling everywhere. The stars are falling. When you see all that around you, say, “Oh God, preserve me, for in Thee do I put my trust. Let me not be confounded or put to shame.”

Thought for today: Search your soul and say, “See if there be any wicked way in me. Cleanse me, Lord.”
