Heaven Is Not For the Lazy


If You Are Not Working With Jesus And Being About GOD Business, Then You Are Lazy!!

Shared by Apostle James R Winfree Sr, Making The Truth Of Jesus Christ Known.

I preached this many, many many years ago when my Dad asked me to have words at my brother Charles home going service, "I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is the day; the night cometh, when no man can work" (John 9:4).

Although our Lord's ministry began late, it was marked by incessant activity. No moment was lost with trifles. His disciples marveled at this. The Lord accounts for this from the fact that Jesus had so much to do while so little time to get it done. This put a "must" into everything Christ did.

It is somewhat of a natural metaphor to speak of life and death as day and night. Every man and woman have their day some longer, some shorter. The day for some may seemingly look bright; for others, their day may seem shady and stormy. Then, night falls on all, and it is likely to come, as it does in the tropics, where there is little or no twilight. The Scripture has been faithful in reminding us of this in order that we may thereby layout our short day to good account.

Our day, though short, will be long enough to finish our work. How brief was the life of Jesus Christ! , Yet with calm trust, He worked on and found it long enough in which to finish the work. In spite of the opposition of carnal men and the devil himself, Jesus could look up into the face of the Father and confidently say, "I have finished the work You Father gave Me to do" (John 17:4). His life, though short, was full; He left nothing undone. It is not the length that counts, but rather what we have been enabled to crowd into that span of time. Have we been loitering along the way or perhaps engaging ourselves with trifles? We look with sadness on some premature deaths. The suggestion might even arise that they were given no time to prepare. Although short, yet it was long enough for them to accomplish what was required of them. No one will ever be able to accuse GOD of not giving him enough time. GOD called me into His ministry at a very early age, and I did my very best Not to answer His call.

For all, there is but a day. No matter where we are in the day, no one has anytime to lose; it is too short to allow for any trifling. It is well when men begin early in the day. How sad when some become just another "morning" Christians. When the heat of the day comes, because of their love of ease, they drop out. Others postpone their work to the evening, but to do so, is to run a dreadful risk. The night comes suddenly. Alas, some may be caught just preparing when they should have been fully ready.

Our work must be accompanied by a "Must." This is what enabled Jesus to fully fulfill His mission. "I must work the works of Him that sent Me." "I must be about My Father's business." "He [Jesus] must need to go through Samaria." When duty arose, there was never any debate with Him. He came into the World with One mission the fulfilling of His Fathers will. That was not to be achieved without work. In all of His varied activities, He never hesitated, recalled a step, or regretted one. He was "faithful unto Him that appointed Him" (Heb. 3:2). Without that "Must," we are going to fall short. Many go far enough to feel "I need to" or "I ought to," but this still leaves the ground for not fulfilling the Father´┐Żs will. Yes even if your family never help or support you or your spiritual family or even your spiritual leaders. GOD'S Work Must Go On!!!.

The work we are engaged in Must Be GOD's Appointed and Anointed. "The works of Him that sent Me." No one has been left out of having a divine commission. Many have the feeling, "I must work to support my family and to make provision for the future." This is true, but in doing so, we can easily allow the lesser to outweigh the greater. and most of you have really Believed All the Lies of those lying fake and false leaders who told you to Pay them to do your work.

It is not enough to work; we must work in the right way and do the right thing. Our calling will never be accomplished haphazardly. GOD'S Holy Word depicts our mission here as a warning, a wrestling, a resisting, and agonizing No lazy Believers up in heaven.

The lateness of the hour or the urgency of the mission has not caused GOD to change the requirements for entrance into His Blessed Kingdom. Popular evangelism, alas, has overlooked the necessity of conviction, repentance, and a turning from sin. Consequently many have been left with a name to live, but still void of eternal life. Of what use is a religion if, in the end, it fails to solve the sin question in man's heart and leaves him void of a title into the Celestial Heavenly City, and just because Women can do a Man's job in ministry, this does not mean GOD wants her to do it. Jesus allowed John to baptized Him even John said he should be baptized by Jesus. Humble yourselves Women of GOD.

The Scripture so often has reminded us of the all-too-common truth: "The time is short." The literal meaning could read, "The time is pressed together." Even a casual observation lets us know that things are fast closing in this our day.
We must be a worker of one thing. The concentration of effort must accompany our GOD-called task. We must not be, as the saying is: "A jack of all trades, but master of none."

When does the night come? As long as I have life, I can work. As long as I have a spiritual church to attend, I am secure. As long as I am surrounded by praying people, I am safe, but resting in these assumptions can hasten the coming of the night for us. When our mind is set to do no more, the night has already arrived.

The warrior who loses the battle may yet live to win the another fight. The bankrupt may yet live to become rich, but if we lose the battle of life, we will never have the opportunity to fight again. We may never reach the point where we can say as our Savior said, "I have finished the work You gave Me to do." Nevertheless, with The Holy Ghost help, our life can finish completely. Our eternal satisfaction will be in hearing those words, "Well done, you good and faithful servant for you have loved My Bride just as you have loved your wives and took awesome care of her" (Matt. 25:23). Amen.

We Are Leading All Souls To GOD Our Blessed Savior Jesus Christ.
