Text: Revelation 2:9
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Our works cannot be hidden from God. Wherever we go, no matter how high or how low we go, God sees our works. God sees and judges even our thoughts and motives. You cannot hide it from God! Many people today live a life of lies, they offer services to people not because they truly want to do that but because they need appraisal from men, Some claim they are doing the work of God whereas deep down in their hearts they are only interested in enriching their pockets.
Sometimes I wonder why God permits pretense for so long, I wonder why he allows evil seem to dominate for so long. I have come to realize God has an appointed time for everything, his mercies are so great that he gives long ropes for men to turn away from their evil works. God calls in Isaiah 55:7, Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Now is the time God will abundantly pardon if you repent of your evil works. A time is coming when you shall knock on the door of Gods heart for mercy and he would never answer, in those days, if your works are evil, you will get the reward of your evil. If your works are Godly, you will get the reward of your good works.
What are you doing for God today? are you a minister of the Gospel? are you just a Christian enjoying Gods grace, or are you yet to know the Lord? Be rest assured your works will be judged!
Prayer: Lord deliver me from evil works, deliver me from unrighteous thoughts, help me father to bear good fruit just as you have commanded. Amen
