IT IS MY PRAYER THAT YOU WILL NOT SLEEP THE SLEEP OF DEATH IN JESUS’ NAME BY PASTOR MRS FOLU ADEBOYE
Many years ago, when I just became BORN AGAIN and began to seriously serve the Lord, the message of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ was preached often. It was so rampant that we had to beg University students to continue their education; after all, Jesus said “Occupy till I come” (Luke 19:13). The Yoruba Christians had a common greeting amongst themselves that says “Eku afojusona ipada Jesu Christi” meaning “Well done as you look forward to the return of Jesus Christ.” Today, however, there are very few messages that remind people of the Lord’s return. People pleasing sermons have taken over the pulpit. You would hardly see many Christians living in expectation of the Lord’s return.
A man who is preparing for the Lord’s return will never MALTREAT HIS WIFE. A wife who knows the Lord will return suddenly will RESPECT HER HUSBAND. An employee who is expecting the Lord’s return will not CHEAT HIS OR HER EMPLOYER. A preacher who is preparing for the Lord’s return will not WITHHOLD THE TRUTH from the people of God in his congregation. Every child of God who is truly serious about his walk with the Lord will avoid anything and everything that could hold him or her back from going with the Lord. WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT, THE LORD WILL RETURN.
On the last day, only the faithful of God will be raptured. No matter how deep the world sleeps, Jesus Christ will still return. Therefore, you had better stop playing around and begin to live holy. I have done my duty by telling you the truth, God will not hold me responsible for not telling you. Where you will end up is now left to you.
HEAVENLY FATHER, PLEASE HELP ME NOT TO SLEEP THE SLEEP OF DEATH. KEEP ME AWAKE TO WATCH AND PRAY UNTIL YOU RETURN.
YOU WILL NOT SLEEP THE SLEEP OF DEATH IN JESUS’ NAME.
