If it seems right to you as an IDOK to adopt IDOP, I so encourage you to do so.  What is IDOP?  This link will explain. And while you are there check out stories of the persecuted Christians around the world.  I am moved to prayer.  Could it be that we IDOKs would adopt Wednesdays as our day to visit the NewsRoom and pray over each story written there?  I’m making a calendar note, complete with an email notice, to remind me that Wednesdays are NewsRoom prayer day.  I hope you will do something similar.

Sweet blessings to you all on this busy and eventful Wednesday!

How Ready?

Wednesday, October 6, 2010 — IDOK Devotion

Please click here to review Praying for These

Revelation 22:20. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, LORD JESUS. 21. The grace of the LORD JESUS be with all. Amen.   (NASB)

Quickly here according to my online Greek Lexicon means without delay.

Mark 13: 31“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.  32“But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.  33“Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come. (New American Standard Bible)

Just as He said it would be mockers have dismissed JESUS’ second coming.  Yet we have His word.

2 Peter 3:  2that you should remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles.  3Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”  (New American Standard Bible)

And so it is the Church has been waiting more than 2,000 years and His word is true, He shall come quickly.  He shall come without delay.  The moment ABBA says bring them HOME, He will NOT delay.  Immediately, He will come and we will be gone.

1 Corinthians 15:  51Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 52in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.  53For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.  (New American Standard Bible)

The usual question now is Are you ready?  But that’s not our question. Our question is How ready are you?  How ready are we if before this day closes, ABBA says, “SON, go get Your BRIDE, the HOUSE is ready.”

HOLY SPIRIT, make us ready; make us so ready we are on our feet, with hands occupied, showing You and others that You LORD JESUS are the LOVE OF OUR LIVES.  Amen and amen.
