Joel 2:12 – Even now,” declares the Lord,“return to me with all your heart,with fasting and weeping and mourning.”
There is a clarion call that is resounding around the world and it is commanding us to “Repent” and turn back to God.
True repentance results in a change of mind, which results in a change of action, path or course. A turning away from sin and turning to God.
Repentance is a change of mind directed toward God that leads to a judgment of self and one’s acts by ones self. Looking at ourselves through the lense of God’s word that is written in the bible.
Before Jesus began his public ministry, John the Baptist came with his warning to God’s people telling them to “repent”. Luke 3:3- “John came into all the region round about the Jordan preaching the baptism of repentance unto remission of sin.” John called upon people to “repent.”
There is a clarion call form Heaven to earth and the message is clear. “REPENT! It is time to turn back to God!
This urgent call to repentance is not new. If we look throughout the bible, we will see where the Prophets of old constantly called the people of God to “repentance”, to turn back to God from whom they had strayed.
America has strayed away form God and all His principles and commands. He is calling us back to Him through “REPENTANCE.” There is no such thing as self help, self fix when it comes to Salvation! JESUS IS IT! He is the only highway leading to heaven, according to John 14:6- Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Now is the acceptable time! Now is the time of Salvation! Now is the time to “REPENT” and turn back to God!
The signs of the times are here. The days are evil. Read Matthew 24 in your spare time. The beginning of sorrows has begun. Run to Jesus!
Turn to God and do not look back! The worst thing that can happen to a Christian is to look back! To turn back toward a life of sin after finding Christ as savior is one of the most miserable ways to live, and can have horrible consequences.
The bell is ringing! There is indeed a clarion call form heaven to earth on today! Will you do as scripture commands all of us to do on today and that is to “REPENT”? Will you do it? God is waiting to hear from you. God wants you back and He is willing to forgive you. It does not matter what you have done, where you have gone, who had been with, what you have spoken against Him in the past, He wants you back! Will you turn to Him on today?
Begin you walk in freedom on today by turning back to God! 2 Chronicles 7:14 - “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you if you have already “repented” and accepted Him as your Lord and Savior on today.
Joel 2:12 is indeed a “Clarion Call” to “Repentance”! It Is time To Turn Back To God!
I love you all with the love of Christ!
