I am confident that we are in our final hours here on earth as believers and more importantly as His Bride, The Church. We are in a time where it is a must to be called faithful and as His people our walk with Jesus has to be strong, steady and ready to endure. We can no longer shrink back, stand still, settle for mediocrity, throw up our hands and say good enough. The Spirit of the Lord and the Word of the Lord have to direct our spiritual compass. Our directive from Jesus Himself is to be a movement of people that go into the world and have a Kingdom impact for an outcome that will last forever.
