One day, possibly early in the morning, a worn sandal touched the edge of the Jordan River. The time had come for the next portion of the plans of God to be set in motion. Quietly, with no fanfare except for the comments made by John the Baptist, the eternal consequences of people’s choices from that time onward would be made known to them. The people who lived in that time period would need to conform to the plan that unfolded before them, whether they wanted to or not. Their lives had changed from that very moment. No one could stop what had been set in motion. This season in the plan of God will continue until He says it’s over.
Shortly before this season concludes, it is generally believed that an application of grace will be available to the end-time generation, so that they might reveal to the world the true character of Jesus Christ. It is also an accepted teaching that there will be a wooing, or heralding, to draw intimately close to Jesus shortly before the final call for those Christians who choose to be a part of that move of God.
For several years now, the discerning ones within the church have sensed that particular wooing to holiness, an exhortation to deep repentance, a bridal call to single-heartedness, and complete submission to the will of God. He is calling His men to restore their offices of husband and father. He is asking them to rescue their children from the influences of the world.
Make no mistake, as sure as the times changed when that sandal of the Messiah met the edge of the Jordan, the present times will change when God decides to finalize His current bridal call. Have you responded? Maybe you should consider doing so before He says, “Enough; all is completed.”
