God is calling us back to our first love—and He's calling the prodigals home. In a recent Mornings with the Holy Spirit broadcast, He showed me too many have moved into the fringes of Christianity.
It reminds me of Christ's words to the Laodicean church: "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of My mouth" (Rev. 3:14-16).
Indeed, a lukewarm spirit is moving through the body of Christ and tempting many to settle for less than deep intimacy with the Lord who loved them enough to die for them. Others are moving into New Age philosophies that put out the fire they once had for God.
I heard the Lord say:
"I'm calling you back to the center because the enemy has tried to force you out of My presence. The enemy has tried to cause you to withdraw from My heart. I am calling you back to the center—out of the fringes and back to the center.
"This is where you will hear My heartbeat, and this is where you will see My face as you seek My face. This is where you will hear My voice and understand My will for your life. And you will see and know and understand that the attacks of the past season were to keep you out of this sweet spot—to keep you out of the next glory. And you will rise up and fight against the enemy that tried to take you out.
"I cannot see you. I am looking for you in My heart, and you've strayed. But now it's time to come back. Now it's time to come back. Now it's time to come back. Where are you? I don't see you in your place, on your post. I don't see you on your knees in your prayer closet. Where are you? That familiar place where I used to meet you, you're not there because you strayed to the fringes, and you strayed from My heart because the pressures of this world squeezed you out of My presence, but you're not out of My life."
