Daily Bread 11/9/2023


    Daily Bread – November 9, 2023 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Romans 13:12 – The night is far gone, and the day is near. Let us, therefore, cast aside the works of darkness, and let us be endued with the armor of light. We are in the last hour of time (1 John 2:18). The night is gone. It is not the early hours of the morning where the darkness begins to fade away, but it is the time of the brightness of God’s new beginning. The Light of the World has come and now shines with the effulgence of His glory like the noonday sun. He has caused the light of His glory to shine as a city set upon a hill. This light now shines in the midst of His Church. The day of His coming is at hand and we must be ready for His appearing. If we go to sleep spiritually by becoming entangled with the things of this world, then it is certain our hearts will grow cold, and we will become detached from any sense of expectation in God (2 Timothy 2:4; Ephesians 5:14; Colossians 3:1-4). The sense of urgency and awareness of the things of God are only realized in our lives because we give ourselves to communion with God (1 Peter 4:12-14; Psalm 36:9). In this communion with the Holy Spirit, we are filled, we are endued, and all of our spiritual senses are fully awakened to the reality of His presence and His will! This present world is fast passing away and the Lord is close at hand to restore all things. Let us lift up our heads for our redemption draws near! Lift up your heads, oh you gates; and be lifted up, you everlasting doors, and the King of Glory shall come in! Let our duty of watchfulness and preparation be without wavering.
