SCRIPTURAL STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL IN THE LAST DAYS
By DIGC23 August 2020
You need spiritual sensitivity in this end time. Be sensitive to God’s instructions.
SCRIPTURE: Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:36.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: An essential requirement for survival in these last days is spiritual sensitivity.
Yesterday, we saw part of what to do to survive in the last days. We saw the need for the maintenance of a buoyant prayer altar and the refusal to be swayed by falsehood.
Today, we shall look further at other things to do to survive in the last days.
- The Maintenance of spiritual sensitivity
Many years ago, I returned home from school, and saw a woman prophesying and everyone gave attention to her as a great prophetess. Even a genuine prophet I knew also believed this woman. I then told this genuine prophet that what the woman was saying was not from God. Consequently, the woman was prayed for, the demon was cast out from her, and she never prophesied again. It took spiritual sensitivity to know that the woman was not genuine.
You need spiritual sensitivity in this end time. Be sensitive to God’s instructions. Don’t be like a donkey that must be pulled here and there before it obeys instructions (Psalm 32:8-9). Be sensitive. Know when to turn off the TV, when to stop a conversation, or when to quit an unprofitable relationship. You should know who should lay hands on your head and who should not; know when to fast, and when not to. An essential requirement for survival in these last days is spiritual sensitivity. So, maintain spiritual sensitivity.
- Living ready
Since we don’t know when the Son of man will come, it is advisable to always live in the consciousness of eternity. This is not the time to harbour un-confessed sins. You live ready by being watchful and prayerful (Luke 21:36).
- Being immersed in Kingdom assignment (Matthew 6:33).
This is not the time to procrastinate on the work of God. This is not the time to say you will work for God only after you are married, after you have given birth to children or after you have gotten a job.
I was working for God and preaching the gospel as a student on campus. People thought I was a full time pastor. I was in my second year in the medical school the first day I preached in the medical students’ fellowship. And the people seemed to be asking each other: “Where did this guest minister come from?” This was because even though I was among them as a fellow student, they didn’t know of a student ministering like that. That was the intensity of the preaching at that time.
Beloved, the maintenance of spiritual sensitivity, living ready and being immersed in Kingdom assignment are part of the scriptural strategies for surviving in the last days (Matthew 6:33).
Remember this: An essential requirement for survival in these last days is spiritual sensitivity.
- Maintain spiritual sensitivity always.
- Live ready.
- Be passionately and actively involved in Kingdom assignment.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive Your help to maintain spiritual sensitivity, live ready and be involved in Kingdom assignment, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
