WHAT NEXT?

EZEK.3:17-21

 

I RAN INTO AN INDIVIDUAL I CAN'T REALLY CALL A FRIEND MORE OF A CLOSE ACQUAINTENCESHIP IF THERE IS THAT KIND OF RELATION BECAUSE WE HAVEN'T BEEN THAT CLOSE. IT HAS COME TO A VERY LARGE POINT OF CONVICTION ON MY PART BECAUSE I HAVEN'T TALKED WITH HIM ABOUT SPIRITUAL THINGS. IN EZEKIEL THE 3RD CHAPTER THE PROPHET VERY STRONGLY WARNS ABOUT THE BLOOD OF THE MAN WHO MISSES HEAVEN BECAUSE AFTER MANY CHANCES YOU HAVEN'T WARNED ABOUT HEAVEN,HIS BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS.

THE MAN EXPLAINED TO ME THAT HE HAD RUN INTO A MAN FROM THE J.W. GROUP AND WAS QUITE INTERESTED IN WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY. HE CAME AWAY FROM THAT MEETING FEELING HE WAS ALRIGHT SPIRITUALLY.

 I WENT RIGHT TO THE POINT AND ASK HIM IF HE HAD A RELATION SHIP WITH JESUS AND HE ASK WHO THIS JESUS IS BECAUSE THE MAN FROM THE GROUP HE TALKED WITH HADN'T MADE IT CLEAR. THIS BOTHERED ME A GREAT DEAL AND I WONDERED WHAT WOULD I HAVE SAID TO THE LORD IF HIS COMING HAD OCCURED BEFORE I HAD SAID ANYTHING? THE WORD MAKES IT VERY CLEAR IF YOU ARE AFRAID TO CONFESS HIM BEFORE MEN HE WILL NOT SPEAK OF YOU TO THE FATHER.

TO USE AN OLD FASHIONED ILLUSTRATION; YOU CAN'T HIDE YOUR EXPERIENCE IN THE BUSH AND LIKE THE GAYS YOU GOT COME OUT WITH WHO YOU ARE. TO GO A LITTLE FURTHER IN THIS DIRECTION,ON AN OCCASION NOT TO LONG AGO, SOME J. W."S CAME TO THE DOOR AND MY FAMILY AT THE TIME TOLD ME TO GET RID OF THEM, I DIDN'T, I MADE A TIME FOR THEM TO RETURN AND TALKED WITH THEM. I LET THEM TALK A FEW MINUTES AND THEN TOLD THEM ABOUT MY FRIEND AND RELATIVE JESUS.

ROMAN'S SAYS HE IS MY BROTHER AND AT THAT POINT SEVERAL CONFESSED JESUS AS LORD IN THE PRAYER TIME.

THE WHOLE THEME OF EZEKIEL 3, IS THAT YOU CAN'T HIDE WHO YOU ARE. IF YOU RELATIONSHIP IN THE LORD IS REAL IT WILL COME OUT. YOU SEE THE WORLD WILL TELL YOU WHO THEY HAVE HAVE AS FAR AS THE WORLD GOES BUT THE GENERALLY THE SHYEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD ARE BELIEVER'S.

 I BECAME ACQUAINTED WITH A FAMILY MAN IN INDIA AFTER HE'S BECOMING A CHRISTIAN. THROUGH AN INTERPRETER I SPOKE WITH  him ON THE PHONE AND TOLD HIME A LITTLE ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT. AFTER TEACHING HIM A LITTLE HE WAS INTERESTED IN HAVING THE HOLY SPIRIT IN HIS LIFE. WE PRAYED ON A THREE WAY CONVERSTION AND IN MOMENTS HE BEGAN TO PRAY IN THE SPIRIT. 

WHILE ANNOINTED BY THE SPIRIT IN THESE MOMENTS HE BEGAN TO PRAY IN PERFECT ENGLISH AND  WORSHIP THE LORD.

 IFOUND OUT AFTER THIS, THAT  HE PREACHED JESUS WITH THE LITTLE KNOWLEDGE THAT HE HAD AND PEOPLE WERE CONVERTED EVERYWHERE HE WENT. AS A RESULT OF THIS GOVT. GUARDS CAUGHT HIM FOR PREACHING JESUS AND ARRESTED HIM FOR ATTEMPTING TO CONVERT PEOPLE FROM THE HINDU TO CHRISTIANITY.

 AT HIS TRIAL THEY FOUND HIM FOUND HIM GUILTY AND SENTENCED HIM TO THE CANE AND BEING HUNG IN THE PUBLIC IN THE SQUARE. IN THE SQUARE SEVERAL OF THE LARGER MEN BEGAN TO STRIPE HIM AND THE WHOLE TIME HE SPOKE OF THE LORD TO THOSE IN THE CROWD. GRADULLY FROM THE STRIPPING GREAT SHREDS OF SKIN CAME OFF AND HE DIED FROM THE INJURIES IN THE SQUARE. AS HE DIED HE PRAYED IN AND SANG IN ENGLISH WORSHIPPING THE LORD AS HE WENT HOME.

WHAT IS YOUR CONFESSION.
