The contemporary message of “The Haters” has been going on for several years now and quite frankly that message is played.
Now, before y’all get all super-spiritual AND ultra-deep… The Bible does talk about having enemies. But, it’s NOT a main subject. In passing, it says that they will be your footstool and another passage it says that He prepares a feast (table) in their presence. I get all of that. My issue with this message is that all too often we are sooo focused on ourselves that we miss our true calling… Sharing salvation.
The commission is NOT, “Lord, deliver me from my haters”. Luke 14:23 KJV tells us that the commission is to “go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”
Why is this highway/hedge message so important? 2 Peter 3:9 MSG says, “God isn’t late with his promise as some measure lateness. He is restraining himself on account of you, holding back the End because he doesn’t want anyone lost. He’s giving everyone space and time to change.” But, how can people change if they are exposed to His message of love, salvation, and grace?
Did you know that, on average, 106 people die EVERY MINUTE? In the time that it take you to read this entire letter over 300 people will have died.
Luke 10:2 AMP says, “He was saying to them, “The harvest is abundant [for there are many who need to hear the good news about salvation], but the workers [those available to proclaim the message of salvation] are few. Therefore, [prayerfully] ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
There are millions of people that have the received message of salvation and truth. But, what are we doing with that message once we accept it. How many people have YOU shared that message with? How many out of the 106 dead per minute did you help lead to the Lord? Or were you too busy being concerned with your ‘Haters’?
I love you ALL!!!
