Dear Charles,

I enjoyed very much reading you post and symphatize with many things you said. I don’t quit the Church I’m attending because I feel the Lord wants me there and because we can make a difference regardless of some different views and of our conscience about the of urgency of times.

I believe our presence in our Church is very important and that we shouldn’t quit going even if our passion for prophecy isn’t as appreciated as it should be.

Today I came across chapter 8 of the book of Amos (which begins with “Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit. And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. …. (etc.)”

In the end of that chapter, it says:

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find {it}. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.”

So be encouraged to continue to be like bread and water for those who are hugry and thristy for the Word of God while we’re still here.

Even if that chapter isn’t talking about us Christians (or is it?), very soon all truly born again Christians will be gathered like “in a basket of summer fruit” and we will not be here anymore to share anything with those who remain. And we must also remember that many of the people who are not that much interested in prophecy shall be in the same “basket of summer fruit” because they have different roles in the body of Christ and are precious to the Lord too. So they must continue to do their part and we must continue to do ours. Be encouraged!

 

Blessings,

Eliane
