The great Derek Prince teaches how to be ready for the coming of the Lord in this video. Here is a summary from myself; but, it is best to listen to his rich message.
- RECOGNIZE : The parable of the fig tree tells us to recognize the season by the signs. The fig tree is often compared to Israel; hence, her re-establishment in 1948. Jesus tells us to recognize the time because when prophesied events begin to happen our redemption draws nigh. Are you excited or depressed? Praise God always, because the baby is coming and it is good news.
- DO NOT BE SURPRISED : Do not be concerned with the cares of this world. You will be delivered from the things of this present evil age. Stay involved but detached.
- WATCH : Pray always that you may counted worthy to escape. We must pray!
- ACT RIGHTEOUSLY : The fine linen is the righteous acts of the Saints. Matthew 24:14 : This gospel of the kingdom must be shared. How will you be involved? None of us are exempt. Give food in due season. It is not getting any easier. But our rewards will be great!
The devil will do all he can to get you to procrastinate getting ready because he knows the lateness of the hour. We need to recognize when he is causing delays or disruptions and pray through!
