Question? How much longer are you going to stay in the pig pen? How much longer will it be before you become like the prodigal Son and realize the pig sty has nothing to offer you but more slop from Hell? Time is running out, and I am calling the prodigals out of the pig sty and back into the House of The Lord. I am calling you also. Please don’t turn a deaf ear to My Call, for there is not another call on the horizon.
The Prodigal Son. The prodigal’s moral message is that a lost sinner who lives a very sinful life can and will be accepted by God (represented by the father) through repentance. Jesus begins the story by setting an example of how depraved the prodigal is.
Luke 15: 11 – 24 (ESV)
11 And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them. 13 Not many days later, the younger Son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living. 14 And when he had spent everything, a severe famine arose in that country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs. 16 And he was longing to be fed with the pods that the pigs ate, and no one gave him anything. 17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your Son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.”‘ 20 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. 21 And the Son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your Son.’ 22 But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. 23 And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. 24 For this my Son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate.
You do not even need to be in the pig sty. My Son’s blood has set you free. You are refusing to walk in the freedom that blood has given you.
CLING TO THE CROSS BEFORE IT IS ETERNALLY TOO LATE!
