Good Morning My Loves,
April 15th has been know as “Tax Day” for decades, however it’s been moved to April 18th this year. Irregardless, every American tax-payer must render to the United States government what is due in the next few days. No citizen in their right mind would withhold from the IRS, because of the hefty penalties and future problems that would inevitably ensue.
Paul addressed this subject when he said:
Romans 13:1 (AMP)
Be Subject to Government
13 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God [granted by His permission and sanction], and those which exist have been put in place by God……
5 Therefore one must be subject [to civil authorities], not only to escape the punishment [that comes with wrongdoing], but also as a matter of principle [knowing what is right before God]. 6 For this same reason you pay taxes, for civil authorities are God’s servants, devoting themselves to governance. 7 Pay to all what is due: tax to whom tax is due, customs to whom customs, respect to whom respect, honor to whom honor.
8 ]Owe nothing to anyone except to love and seek the best for one another; for he who [unselfishly] loves his neighbor has fulfilled the [essence of the] law [relating to one’s fellowman]. 9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not covet,” and any other commandment are summed up in this statement: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor [it never hurts anyone]. Therefore [unselfish] love is the fulfillment of the Law.
As I was meditating on this passage, I thought:
-What if every believer felt the same moral obligation and civil duty to pay their tithes (firstfruits-honor) to the Lord?
-What if every believer paid their love, respect, and honor to Him, His established authority, and each other, with the same sense of responsibility that we pay our taxes?
-What if we “wouldn’t think” of withholding these things from God and each other?
-What if every believer awoke from spiritual complacency and realized what time it is?
My beloved, it’s time to settle these things, and be completely sold-out to Jesus. To love Him and each other as never before!
While many are growing cold, I also see an army arising that is sold-out to Jesus. They walk in love, honor, respect for God, and their fellow man. The largest wealth transfer the world has ever known is about to be transferred into their hands for the purpose of bringing in “the great harvest,” right before the second-coming of Christ.
God is calling ALL His people to get on board! No one should be vacillating with regards to these questions, and we MUST DO THIS NOW, KNOWING THAT THIS IS A CRITICAL TIME!
We "are" facing a spiritual DEADLINE, and it’s high time to AWAKEN!
Romans 13:11-12 (AMP)
11 DO THIS, KNOWING THAT THIS IS A CRITICAL TIME. It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]; for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ]. 12 The night [this present evil age] is almost gone and the day [of Christ’s return] is almost here. So let us fling away the works of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.
Remember, we live in a superior Kingdom, and unlike the IRS, we are not “forced” to do these things. However the return on our “willing,” and “regular deposits,” are INCALCULABLE!
This is a season of sowing and reaping, like never before! Don’t miss out! Let’s be those who AWAKEN, AND DO THIS!
I love you all! PV
