Simon, Are You SLEEPING ?

The NIGHT COMETH when NO MAN can work… 

St_Peter_Besenzi

MARK 14: 36-38 

And HE+ said, ABBA, FATHER, all things are possible unto THEE; take away this cup from ME+: nevertheless not what I+ will, but what THOU wilt.

 And HE+ cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, 

Simon, sleepest thou? 

Couldest not thou watch 

one hour?

 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

 Meditation ~ ~ 

 Simon Peter had two names:  Simon, son of Jonas, and Peter, the little rock, the familiar name given unto him by The LORD. 

 Two names… two names indicate two operations within this beloved follower of JESUS: the human, fleshy man and the Re-generated Man. 

 Notice in Scripture WHEN each name is addressed to Peter by The LORD.

 Luke 22: 31-32

  And the LORD said, Simon, Simon, behold, the satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:  But I+  have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

At Watch for One Hour With The LORD …. 

 How can we think to stand for CHRIST JESUS in these perilous times if we do not watch with HIM+ before the battle begins

 Do not be mistaken: if we SOW to the flesh, if we are so active and involved with even GOOD temporal things, that we MAKE NO TIME TO WATCH WITH HIM+ for an hour …   

 

… we will not be prepared 

to STAND with CHRIST JESUS 

when the wrath of the satan 

is stirred against those 

who follow HIM+. 

 Prayer  ~ ~ ~

 O LORD CHRIST, awake me from my slumber. Arouse the Spirit within me to draw me into wakeful prayer. Help me to be MORE ALERT to the spiritual work you have placed upon me, to fight with the NON-FLESHLY weapons of our warfare.        

   O LORD CHRIST, THOU+ hast given me Thy+ Word that the weapons of our warfare do NOT deal with the carnal but with the spiritual , and thus , are MIGHTY THROUGH GOD to the pulling down of strongholds built by the wicked spiritual entities parading across this globe … for a short hour.  

Help me to be diligent to use these weapons by staying close to THEE+, O CHRIST, and to hear Thy+ Directions, O Captain of the Divine Heavenly Armies. 

 

Amen, and thankfully so, through the Authority of the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST, and with all the Authority His+ Blood and His+ Name grants us, according to His+ Will….

 I do pray.

One thought on “Simon, Are You SLEEPING ?

  1. The world has many keeping watch over their earthly things, but this post says what is happening more and that is they have not even one hour out of their day to meditate upon the word to know the will of their Father in heaven. This is a sobering post and I pray many will stop and think of what is taking up most of their day………, heaven is a real place and this world is so temporary and fleeting! Father open hearts and minds to your most sacred truth of light and love in Jesus name Amen. God Bless you in the faithful work He has called you to.
