Come Back Quickly

Let Me briefly explain to you the meaning of the word apostasy. I have those on My heart who once walked with Me and received blessing from My hand, but their hearts were shallow, as were their roots. A firm foundation they did not build, and they languished.

Their eyes and hearts began to drift to other things–delights to the eyes and ears. Their hearts became leaden and their delight in Me became wearisome–a chore–no longer captivated with My love.

A coldness and hardening settled upon the once fervent heart, now stagnant, indifferent. And so, they turned away.

Apostasy

  • The deceitfulness of sin entered in.
  • Love no longer captivates.
  • A soul no longer hungry.

Apostasy

Dead in their sin and turned away–a lifeless form.

Come back quickly

Apostasy!

“For this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them.” Matthew 13:15

“For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.” Hebrews 6:4-6

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear; but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you so that he does not hear.” Isaiah 59:1-2

“–Truly, truly, I say to you, every one who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not continue in the house for ever; the son continues for ever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:34-36

“Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7

  2. Men of One Accord has posted a message that God gave him almost simultaneously with this one that I posted tonight. The two seem to be twin messages. His leaves off with a man hoping to hear God speak in answer to his distress and condition of the heart and in this post the Lord seems to answer him. The Lord never ceases to amaze me! Read Men of One Accord’s post by following the ping back link above.

  3. Thank you for this post. It is a horrible thing to watch one who formerly walked with God slide into apostasy because he needs to be the one who was right. Only God can breach such a person’s defences and move him to tear down the wall he has built. I still believe such a miracle is possible.
