Where to Start?

Blog for the Lord Jesus exists to draw attention to the omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent God – our Lord Jesus Christ.

We who speak in His name are to draw attention to Him, not ourselves – just as Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:5.  God is revealing today that the pathway to revival, to a great awakening, is to return to Him from whom we have deeply defected – that is, return to our first love:  Jesus.

Through centuries of tradition upon tradition, we have lost sight of Him who released us from our sins by His blood.  We have been caught up in building all sorts of tabernacles for Him.  Not only does He not need these tabernacles, they obscure His light.  We have unwittingly made our traditions more important than the commandments of God.  It is time that we repent.  And if we as Christian leaders repent, we have reason to hope that those who listen to us will repent as well.  And thus we can have the revival, the awakening, that we so desire and that He so deserves.

Then our hearts will thrill because we will see the bountiful harvest for which we have labored.  Then we will hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant!”  But even if they do not believe us, we will know that we have obeyed Him.  And that is enough for us.  For this is our relationship with God: that we love Him and keep His commandments.

Now is the time to go back to His light and let it shine in all its glory.  Declare the omnipresent Jesus.  Declare the One who will answer to whoever calls on His name in sincerity and truth.  Declare the One who stands triumphant over death, ruling the heavens and the earth:  Jesus Christ, Savior of the world.

    This comment is primarily a test to see if this process works. I have tried once and failed … I am technologically challenged. So, try again. I have read several of your essays and found a lot to agree with. But, I would caution that we must be careful and avoid throwing out the proverbial baby with the bathwater. Godspeed
