Have you noticed the Kingdom of God is an either/or Kingdom? Jesus says “He who is not with me is against me and he who does not gather with me scatters abroad. The Lord is making a distinction between the Kingdom of darkness and the Kingdom of light. There is either light or there is darkness – there is no centre ground of both darkness and light – either there is one or the other. And so, it is with our walk. We are either with Him or we are against Him; we either live for Him or we live for ourselves; we either meet our selfish needs or we submit to His needs. We either have faith in Him or we don’t; we either fear or we have hope in Him.
And the Spirit of the Lord says today: “Now is the time to determine in your hearts whose side you will be on and to stay on that side. The divide is getting wider and no longer will I tolerate the mixture for I am calling my Bride to commit to My camp and My purposes. She must choose to live in faith or to live in fear, to live in the light or live in darkness. It is either/or choice.”
“But my righteous[a] one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”[b]
