“Because God does not want us to be in disorder but in harmony and peace.” (1 Corinthians 14:33)
My dear Children, Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As believers we need to have a sharp discernment and understanding of the signs of the times we are going through to know the will of God for His people. But, if we lack contact and communication with God, it will blind us and eventually lead us into an environment that is dragging us down. Consequently, we lack in wisdom and discernment to under-stand the warning signs of the time by ignoring it.
In the gospel of Luke chapter 12, Jesus says that humans can interpret the face of the earth and sky and we know when the weather changes, but don’t know how to read the signs of the times. Jesus call on to us to learn to read the signs of the times. The key to understand the times is knowing God and have a relationship with him through His son Jesus Christ. God is looking and seeking faithful and unwavering people so that they can understand God’s will and correctly understand the warning signs of the times.
The gift of discerning good and evil is one of the gift that Holy Spirit has given to us. The Spirit of God through the Scriptures will enlighten the gift of discernment of a believer. Repentance, reconciliation and thankful heart to God are the steps required for this learning process. Take a moment, to find out our relationship with God, family and friends and where will you spend the eternity. Let us ask the interpreter, the Holy Spirit to help us to pay attention to the warning signs and to awaken us and give directions by removing the spiritual blinders.
God’s blessings upon you!
