Would you join me for a coffee talk this morning? Repent means to change the way we think, correct? Okay, so when we call for repentance, we are calling for people to change the way they think. Yet changing the way we think is actually harder to do than changing what we do in many cases. Our thoughts are the root while our actions are the fruit. It is easier to pick bad fruit, than to change a bad root. But to really repent we must change the way we think. This must be a deliberate decision, this is not something that just happens. Let’s talk about a thought we need to change in order to be ready for what is fast approaching.

In Matthew 24 it says “As in the days of Noah so it will be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man”. There were many things that happened in the days of Noah, but the main one is the flood. Who was swept away in the waters of the flood? The wicked. Who was left behind to replenish the new earth? Noah and his family. In Exodus 14, who crossed through the Red Sea on dry ground? Yes, the nation of Israel. Who was swept away in the waters of the Red Sea? Yes, Pharoh and his army. Were we not told in Exodus 14:13, “The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.” Okay, since this is all true, why is it so hard for us to believe God is sweeping away our enemies not us? Why do we struggle to believe we are called to be builders of the nations when the enemy is removed?

Isaiah 65 is what started this in me this morning, “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create.” As I read this I realized we have been taught this is in the “millenial reign” or for some time after Jesus returns, but the Lord keeps telling me this is for now not for some time in the future. We are in the days of Noah, we are in the days of the Red Sea crossing, we are in the Isaiah 65 days, but we must repent, change the way we think, for the enemy is going to be swept away and we are going to be left behind to replenish the earth, to rebuild the nation, to restore the people. We are about to get to work in a way that is going to be enjoyable. I hope you ready to live your best life!
