I prayerfully asked the Lord yesterday if He had a message for His Church when suddenly the following vision unfolded. A great number of people was standing outside somewhere. I asked: “Who are they?” Reply: “They Have No Life. They Are Asleep.” A large upside down balloon was shown – it was not floating the way a balloon should. It remained stagnant.
Buoyancy In Christ
These are people from all walks of life and nations who are void of light and of life made available only through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. They also include back slidden and lukewarm Believers occupying different roles, offices and titles in lifeless churches. Wrongful doctrines and mindsets, disbelief, adversarial attacks, latter-day tensions and stress, weariness and sin have turned even Believers upside down. But! GOD has a plan for them if they will abide in Him and receive His uplifting and life-giving Holy Spirit. Praise the Lord and Light of the world!
But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest (they are asleep) and arise from the dead (they have no life) and Christ shall give thee light (all that gives life, all that is righteous) See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. (Eph. 5:13-15)
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. (Jn. 10:9-11)
Not Just an Ordinary Balloon
A balloon is an object that is opposite to heaviness – it is light and airy and should float in the air. Instead, this large balloon was upside down and earthbound for as many reasons as there were people. Yet not all is doom and gloom! These people were also standing. It means that many during these latter days are beginning to awaken and will arise. Albeit, some will tragically awaken to eternal contempt and some joyfully to everlasting life! (Daniel Chapter 12)
The Church must be prepared and ready to accommodate a large influx of people seeking answers: the latter day harvest! Its doctrine must be pure, illuminating and based on Jesus Christ and His complete plan of salvation. And its five fold teachers, pastors, apostles, prophets and evangelists without concrete and justifiable reproach. (Eph. 4:11). It follows that the non-redeemed Church, along with Israel, are being warned to make haste carefully while time is still a commodity. “They” are being called to turn in repentance and receive salvation. To stand uprightly and take their places in redeeming the times on a planet that is increasingly being enveloped by darkness. It is being called to awaken and to arise with faith and belief in the One and only merciful Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
