TOPIC: GOD TAKES NOTE✍️
TEXT: REVELATION 14:4
“These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they kept themselves pure. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among men and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.
If you look closely at the verse of the scripture, the record about some persons was written in heaven and when it was being read, every of their acts appeared as past tense except the statement
“They follow the Lamb wherever he goes .”
Whatever good deed a person does, when the Lamb looks back and notices that one is not present, all the good deeds of such individual are unnecessary.
This is how the writer ✍️ saw what happened:
” Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father *written on their foreheads
● standing on mount Zion
● on their Forehead
Any leader who oversees does that by standing on something and in a particular location(Mount Zion!)
He is not just a seer but he is overseeing because of what he is standing on in a particular location!
That is why he could see their foreheads!
They were counted based on what is written on their foreheads!
A follower is not someone who follows with his or her legs but the one whose face is set as a flint.
‘Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame. ”
Why turn away your head when your body is present?
As a leader, read what’s on their foreheads! The more I follow Jesus, the more am able to read what’s on the people’s foreheads!
Are you following Christ? Are you counted? Are you wearing helmet ???? of salvation? Is your name included in the book?
God doesn’t do numbering; He does counting!
Where are you now? Are you present here with us or isolated? Are you facing the front or you are looking elsewhere?
Are you in the company that is being counted by The great Shepherd or you have been counted out?
Whose name is temporarily written on your foreheads? You know there are people who say in their hearts “I will receive Christ when am done with this sin and that”
So, the name of their girlfriend and boyfriend is written on their foreheads!
There are believers who are present but turned their heads away because another name had replaced the original one.
I have said again and again that I do not know any methods to finishing strong than to keep following Christ day after day!
Remember, the word “follow” is the only word that is used as present tense!
Sir/ma, we thank God for your past records but shall we find your name when the home page is refreshed?
I want to encourage you today to keep following The Lord with the gladness of heart and truly your eye will behold The King in His beauty!
PROPHETIC : Do you need a space to stay? The Lord will make room for you! Has your axe???? head(productivity) fallen(sank) in the river, it will float to the surface again!
God bless you!
