The Weight of When God Speaks

“Work while it is day because great darkness is coming.” 9-24-2013 NACOG Revival Service

Last night during our revival services we had what I would like to call a Holy Interruption as the Evangelist was giving the invitation to prayer. The above words were the message of this interruption. I believe when God speaks we are to listen. Further I believe he has already spoken through his word; therefore, when a message is given to his people it will not be contrary or go against what is already handed down through his word.

The message last night through the unction of the Holy Spirit moving upon Gods messenger was “work while it is day because great darkness is coming.” I believe that when God pulls back the curtain and a word is giving it can be written down and the body needs to remember it. The weight of the word is still heavy on my heart and wanted to process it a little through writing. As I process it here are a few things I am reminded of from God’s word.

Jesus wants us to work hard. John 4:35 (NKJV) – Do you not say, “There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!

Jesus wants us to work now. John 9:4 (NKJV) – I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.

Ultimately we have to decide NOW to get involved in the work of Christ. Along with me, ask yourself…

“What work am I doing to advance the gospel of Christ?”
“Am I more concerned with things other than fulfilling the purpose God has for my life?
