An inward look through Sanctuary glasses

Updated: Feb 14

W.A.P - Watch and Pray “An inward look through Sanctuary glasses.” Meditate: 1 Corinthians 9:25-27 It is one thing to know what’s coming before it comes. God has given us a gift by which we can see and know what is coming and how close we are to the coming crisis but also the coming Christ. Meditate: Isaiah 46:9-10 John 14:29 Matthew 24:32-33 2 Peter 1:19-21 It is another thing altogether to be prepared for what we know is coming. How easily and unconsciously we fall into the trap of just “watching” without “praying.” One should inform the other. In addition, the fruit borne of this union is “working.” Meditate: James 2:20, 26 Hebrews 11:7 Working is the outward evidence that you believe what you are seeing and you believe that the power needed to do your part of the work, even finish it can be supplied. So you ask for it in prayer! If any one of these elements are missing, there is a disconnect somewhere and the promised power cannot be fully functional in the life. Meditate: Proverbs 22:3 “...foresees the evil and hides himself...” The evasive action is taken when the prudent man sees destruction on its way. But those who see the preparation without seeing the predicament label the prudent man “a mere alarmist,” “fanatical,” strange. However, the second half of the text justify the prudent mans actions while condemning the foolish. Meditate: Matthew 26:41 Let us, while we still have time, take an inward look to see where we’re standing in relation to eternity. Meditate: The message of Noah was to him a reality. Amid the scoffs and jeers of the world, he was an unbending witness for God...How simple and childlike, amid the unbelief of a scoffing world, was the faith of Noah...He gave to the world an example of believing just what God said.
