SUNDAY, JULY 24
Scripture: Matthew 24:43
Verse 43 says, “But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.” In this verse, Jesus gave us authority in our house. He gave us the authority to pray and save our children. He gave us the authority to make sure that when judgment falls, it does not fall on our kids who are not yet where they are supposed to be. This came out of His mouth. The thief came in judgment and everyone that was taken in this passage was taken in judgment. The thief here is the judgment that kills. If the master of the house had known what hour the thief was to come he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Can we trust the Holy Spirit to show us when judgment is coming and save our house from it? Of course we can! The job of the Holy Spirit in John 16:8 is to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. Nobody knows when judgment is coming, but He will reveal in order to save. He will alert us when judgment is approaching so we can get our kids ready to be saved. The church is very likely walking into a season where the last great frontier of the gifts of the Holy Spirit will be in the application of judgments. Are we ready to seek God for that realm. We need to because that time is rapidly approaching. He is the Judge of all the earth. And we walk with Him and represent Him. We want to stop the thief and it is time to walk in faith in the last days.
