I believe that God is trying to reach the heart of someone out there who is in desperate need of His love. Someone who feels as though they are at the end of their rope and can not take on anymore of the issue and stresses of life alone. If this is you, God is calling you! He is sending forth the call of "REDEMPTION" for you if you would believe and receive it.
Everyday, for the past week, The Holy Spirit has given me messages of "Salvation" and I am being obedient to what He gives me to write.
God's messages are with urgency to man, women, boys and girls around the world.
Today' message is no exception for Jesus is again calling the lost to come home on today in this parable of the prodigal son.
This parable is a picture of "REDEMPTION." A picture of God the Father and "sinners."
A picture of God's love that heals, restores and reconcile us back to God as if we never left.
Luke 15:11-32 11 Then He said, “A man had two sons. 12 The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of the property that falls to me.’ So he divided his estate between them.
13 “Not many days later, the younger son gathered everything together, and journeyed to a distant country, and there squandered his possessions in prodigal living. 14 When he had spent everything, there came a severe famine in that country, and he began to be in want. 15 So he went and hired himself to a citizen of that county, who sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 He would gladly have filled his stomach with the husks that the swine were eating, but no one gave him any.
17 “When he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have an abundance of bread, and here I am perishing with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” ’ 20 So he arose and came to his father.
“But while he was yet far away, his father saw him and was moved with compassion, and ran and embraced his neck and kissed him.
21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him. And put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet. 23 Bring here the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and be merry. 24 For this son of mine was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ So they began to be merry.
Many today have left God for the world, but God is calling you back home.
Yes, it is time to come back to the Father.
Like the prodigal son in this text who came to his "senses", it is time for you to do the same. It is time to realize that life everlasting is not found apart from God but with God.
Regardless of how many pig pens you may have wallowed in, regardless of how far you may have gone in sin, if you confess your sins to Him, God is faithful and just to forgive you. He is willing and able to reconcile you back to Him through Christ.
The key to restoration, reconciliation and redemption is the fact that we have to admit our need for God, even while we are yet in our mess. We must admit that we can't save ourselves, for apart from God we can do nothing.
As with the prodigal son, God is watching and waiting in hopes that you too will come running down the road back home for when you do, He Himself will welcome you and there will be a great celebration on your behalf.
There are many great blessings that awaits your arrival back to the Fathers' house.
Will you return to the Father on today? Will you admit your need for Him and come back to Him?
Battered and bruised by the world and all it's cares? God wants to cover your every sin with His love. Will you come?
Today is the day to leave the "far country called the world and all it's pleasures" and come back home to the Father. Your "REDEMPTION' awaits you there.
Yes, it is time to come back home.
