Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Romans12:11(NIV).
We are in a very critical time…the end is not only near but here. This is a deadly hour, too deadly for any Christian to be lukewarm! Jesus said in Revelation 3:16 ‘So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth’. How can anyone at this time choose to be a ‘yoyo’ Christian?! This is the period of awakening. This is the period of revival. This is the time to be on fire for the Lord.! This is not the time to be asleep, rather it’s a time to be awake and ready for the coming of the Lord!.
You’ll have to hire a complete dummy to help you deny the signs of the end time that are already upon us. Evil is so thick in the air, shameless acts of immorality have become fashionable, shedding of innocent blood is where some derive their joy and those in authority demonstrate their strength through their hardness of heart and callousness… everything in the world has gone upside down!
We see the prophecies concerning these last days written in the Bible playing out before us. Beloved Christian brother or sister, it’s time to wake up from your slumber! It’s time you begin again to take those spiritual exercises you once treasured and did diligently seriously again. The time is ticking and the Church of Christ is about to be taken out of the scene. You must not be found here after we are gone! Do all you can to escape the evil that will prevail and rule on earth after the Church. Remember the words of our Lord in Luke 21:34-36 ‘And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
‘SAY: I’M AWAKE, NEVER ASLEEP. I AM ON FIRE FOR GOD AND I’LL NEVER MISS THE RAPTURE IN JESUS NAME!SHARE WITH SOMEONE ELSE,SAVE A SOUL FROM HELL.
LEARN TO PERSIST How people fail and loose so easily in the battles of life because of their indiscipline to persist in prayer.
Proverbs 24:10 says “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.” You see why you should never be defeated by your situation?. Don’t ever give up your desire, go for it!!! The truth is, there are things you’ll never pull from the spirit realm and there are levels you’ll never attainwith God if you don’t persist in the place of prayer.
This is one way God tests the strength of your desire and the sincerity of your hunger for spiritual depths. Did you ever read of Jacob, how he wouldn’t let the angel of the Lord go until he blessed him?.(Genesis 32:26). The Bible says he wrestled in prayer with the Lord till day break(Hosea12:4,Genesis 32:24).Amazing!
Elijah wanted to hold back rain from falling on the earth, the Bible says he prayed earnestly and continually (James 5:17-18). My goodness! I understand exactly what that means because I’ve been there many times. This kind of praying is not what you do for 20minutes,then you get up and say ‘praise God,hallelujah, I have it’. No, this kind of prayer is what you do when you want a definite and immediate change in your persisting situation, when you want to move into higher realms with God, when you want to see the salvation of hardened souls,when you want to change the decrees and laws given by the government of your nation or state that don’t favour the gospel, when you want to bring revival to your world etc. You can also pray like this to change the course of your life! The sad thing is that so many give up easily. When they are just about to get the answer is when they give up. No, don’t be a failure!! My life is a testimony: persistent prayer is what brought me this far in my understanding of God’s word, manifesting spiritual gifts and hearing the voice of God.
The fact is, if you’re really serious about what you want then you’ll be serious about getting it. But remember, if you refuse to be serious about getting it then you have no option than to stay with what you have(which cannot actually take you far).
In the sections below I have included some facts about teeth that I’ve come across when writing various articles. If you’re also writing about teeth, feel free to use the facts below but please give attribution to this page. You may also find our page on dental statistics useful. What are teeth?
Teeth are the hardest substance of your entire body. Enamel is a rock-hard mineral! Once damage is sustained, enamel cannot regrow or heal itself. Strengthen your enamel with toothpastes and mouthwashes, and eat plenty of foods containing calcium.
Teeth aren’t bones , despite the fact that they are both hard, white, and contain calcium. Unlike bones, teeth can’t heal themselves or grow back if they suffer damage.
Enamel protects the dentine beneath it, which is made from living cells and calcified tissue.
Teeth look yellow when the white enamel is worn down , causing it to become translucent. The weaker the enamel, the more the yellow of the dentine beneath colours the tooth. Another way your teeth lose their whiteness is through regular contact with food and drinks that cause surface stains , such as coffee and tobacco. Whitening pastes have a higher abrasive quality which gently wears away surface stains.
Only two thirds of your teeth are visible . The rest is hidden inside your gum. Gums need just as much attention as teeth in your oral health care regime. Plaque left on teeth causes tooth decay. Don’t forgot to brush, floss and use mouthwash two to three times a day.
Flossing is important because it allows you to remove plaque from below the gum line, where a toothbrush can’t reach. Looking after your gums is important in preventing periodontal disease, which creates pockets around your teeth. This is just one way you can loose teeth by not brushing and flossing regularly.
