Each week we select a popular teaching from Jon's archives. This week's teaching from Leviticus is "Come On In."

"Looking for and hastening unto the coming of the day of God..."
2 Peter 3:12

I think all of us are very aware that this ol' world is in most dire straits.

I am certain all of us agree we want our Lord to come quickly, even as John-the-Revelator prayed, "Even so, come, Lord Jesus!"

Now, in the text above Peter tells us we not only are "looking for that day," but can actually "hasten" or "speed up" that day, the glorious day of His coming for you and for me.

You may be wondering how can we do that?

I suggest two ways we can indeed "hasten that day."

1) Share the Faith

It seems as though there is a "last person" who will make up the "Fulness of the Gentiles" (Romans 11:25) and when he or she gets saved, we will all be going home!!!

So let us preach the gospel and hasten that day!!!

2) Pray in Faith

Jesus taught us to pray to our Father, "Thy Kingdom Come..."

In Daniel's day, as he was reading the Scripture, he realized the prophetic significance of the days he was living in, so he immediately went into a time of purposed and passionate prayer that would impact his day and give him further insight into The Lord's prophetic plan (see Daniel 9).

So for we who indeed desire to see Him sooner, let us Share the Faith and Pray in Faith, and in so doing, doing what we can to indeed "hasten the day." Amen?

Amen!!!

Looking Up,

Jon


Daily Devotional
July 28
 
And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.
Exodus 33:19
 
“If you ask anything in My name, I will do it,” Jesus said (John 14:14). For many years, I thought this meant I was to simply add the phrase “In Jesus’ name” to the end of my prayers, sort of like, “over and out.” But when I understood that praying in Jesus’ name means to pray according to His nature, I found I couldn’t pray a lot of prayers I had been praying prayers like, “Lord, deal with that guy who just cut me off on the highway,” prayers like, “I want this to happen now.”

“Am I unmerciful, impatient, or short-fused?” the Lord asked me. “Or am I longsuffering, merciful, and slow to anger? I only work in ways that reflect who I am.”

It was because Moses knew the name, the nature, and the character of God that he was able to ask for His presence, His pardon, and His eternal promise. Meditate on God’s nature as seen in the person of Jesus. Get a strong, firm grip on this, understand, and your prayers will become those God can answer.
