Promise,position,purpose

Our God is a promise maker and a promise keeper.Whatever he has promised you got to believe that He will fulfill.
With the promise comes the process.He divinely position you to attain the promise.The best we can do in the positioning stage is remain focused.
Finally the purpose is unveiled and when you understand His purpose in your life,the greatest character is to fear the Promise keeper, the divine positioner,the Purpose fullfiller.

Judgment is real

When I was sixteen years old, in 1993, I had 4 visitations in form of dreams. I wasn’t born again and though I experienced dreams, which I never bothered about, these particular ones were so extraordinary that they couldn’t escape my notice. I have described the first one in a different article but here I will describe the second one.
In the dream, we were in a very large flat field where the people of the whole world were assembled. I was standing on the edges of the field but I was able to see Jesus standing in the middle of the field addressing people. I got to know that it was judgment day. The instructions he gave were that when he spreads his hand over the people, if his hand touched you, then you would not go to heaven. Because I knew that I was tall, I decided to squat upon seeing the hand of Jesus. After squatting, the dream ended.
The revelation here is that the judgment of the world is real, and everyone will be taken through it. The qualifying factor is humility symbolized by squatting. When one accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and savior, it shows they have humbled to the only way God gave humankind to access eternal life. Jesus will be the judge. The dream is not the actual picture of what will happen but a confirmation of the description in the bible:

11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.                        (Revelations 20:11-15) NKJV Bible

The humility comes when one acknowledges that Jesus is the son of God, sent to redeem us from the curse rendered to us by God when we erred in the garden of Eden, then confess Jesus as Lord and then surrender to gradual sanctification by the Holy Spirit until Christ’s second coming

9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
(Romans 10:9 NKJV Bible)

Anyone who denies Christ is under the influence of the antichrist.

7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
(2 John 1:7 NKJV Bible)

The judgment of the world will not be a one day event. It begins with God judging various demons, beginning with the great harlot, the mystery Babylon in Revelations 17 and 18.Then Christ will come back to the world with the saints that were persecuted because of Him. With the two swords from His mouth, He will strike the rebellious people, trend the wine press of the wrath of God and the dead will be fed to the birds of the air. This is the supper of the great God. (Revelation 19:17). Christ will then throw the antichrist and the false prophet that have been lying to the world into the lake of everlasting fire.

20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
(Revelation 19:20 NKJV Bible)

Christ will then bind the devil for a thousand years when Christ will be reigning with the saints. Afterwards, the devil will be loosened. The devil will deceive as many as the sand of the seashore, that they should fight Christ and the saints, after which he will be defeated and  thrown into the lake of burning fire and brimstone.( Revelation 20).
Lastly, the other great demons that caused people to die, Death and Hades will be judged, thus there will be no more death. The wicked people will be cast into eternal fire while the righteous get to eternal life in Revelation 21.

Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
(Revelation 20:14 NKJV Bible)

Therefore brothers and sisters, judgment is real. Wash your garments clean and do righteous acts for you will account all of them to God.

Remaining Relevant

Everyone has a need to be needed.
Sometimes the people who needed you may need you no more.
When it dawns on you that you are no longer useful to them anymore,
Take account of your stay or time spent with them. Step up and move on to your next assignment.
Transition to the next level of assignment has been the root of stress to many.
Change has been unacceptable to many even when it is inevitable.
Accept changes in seasons and phases of life. Sometimes holding on past due time only causes heartache.
A mother who can not let go of her grown up children still wants to feed them,check on them, and soon it becomes a source of conflicts……
Mamas let go of them ,give them space and remain relevant to them.
In times of need, they will call and say, mamma, I love you or mama I need your advice.

Fathers, It goes without saying, not many would do like the father of the prodigal son.

Then He said, “A certain man had two sons. The younger of them [inappropriately] said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of the property that falls to me.’ So he divided the estate between them. A few days later, the younger son gathered together everything [that he had] and traveled to a distant country, and there he wasted his fortune in reckless and immoral living.
Luke 15:11‭-‬13 AMP

Many wants to give inheritance to your children on your death bed. Unfortunately, many die before writing a will and all the wealth accumulated over your years is dispersed and gone within a short while. Let go and remain relevant to them.
Sometimes relocation is necessary and a new season is birthed. Unless we let go of the past we may not fully experience the new and the now.
Stop feeling sorry for yourself or holding on to grudges because you have not received the reward you expected from the souls you invested in. Keep sowing the seeds, in and out of season. Harvest time is coming.
Let go what needs to go and maintain relevance by serving the purposes of God in our Generation.
