When you hear the word, lukewarm, what do you think of? A cup of coffee that you forgot in the microwave? A piece of pie after it cools? A relationship gone sour? Tepid water to bathe a baby?
It’s a word I rarely hear, or use. But what about “warm”? Is it the same as lukewarm, or little bit hotter?
The seventh and last church of the Bible is the Laodicea Church, better known as the, “lukewarm” church. Revelation 3:15–16
Here’s what God has to say about the Laodicea or the lukewarm church:
 I know your works, but you are neither cold nor hot: I wish you were cold or hot.
God knows their works, but they are done half-hardheartedly, with little zeal.
 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.
Remember your reaction, when you expected hot coffee and it was lukewarm and you wanted to spit it out? That’s how God feels about the lukewarm, dormant, disenchanted, fed up, bored Christian, who He wants to bless, and use for His glory, but he thinks all is well.
God expects us to be a bright light in this dark world and not be lukewarm, scared to tell a lost person going to Hell, about the great sacrifice of Jesus before the cross, during the cross, and after the cross, so they can believe on Him and be saved.
Live for Him simply, everyday and stop pretending it’s okay to be neutral, mopish, and lukewarm. When you settle for mediocre, you are missing the thrill of finding your purpose, and what your soul longs for. His destiny for you is what you crave deep in your heart to do, and He will make a way for you to find it, and do it, only when you repent, believe, and totally surrender to life to Jesus.
The cold, frigid Christian is easier to take to than a lukewarm, unmoved Christian. He knows he’s grown cold, and he doesn’t hide the fact he’s a back slider. He admits he needs to come back to God, or come to God in the first place. He admits he’s a sinner and doesn’t deserve God. But, the only thing is, it usually takes a catastrophe before he does anything, and not always then, either.
When the cold, apathetic Christian makes the least move toward God, God accepts him immediately, because he knows the cold, withdrawn Christian means it. God enjoys blazing hot . He tolerates frigid cold. But, He loathes milk-toast lukewarm.
The lukewarm or laid-back Christian can be self-righteous and do good deeds without much prayer, church or Bible study. They want to get things done for praise of man. The drowsy, unconcerned Christian is hard to reach and that’s why God wants to spew them out of His mouth. That doesn’t mean they will lose their salvation, but they miss out on blessings and being used by God.
Lukewarm or self-righteous Christians can be in-the-box, closed-minded, and judgmental. They will resort to doing good deeds to get noticed, and think they’re pleasing God. The unexcited Christian’s good works can be self-serving, when they’re too lazy to pray and wait for God’s guidance.

POSTER BY KATHY STORRIE USING STENCIL
A HOT Christian is the best, because his relationship with God is real and a big part of his daily life as he prays, reads the Bible, repents of sins, and treats people with respect.
For A “HOT" christian, these synonyms were on Dictionary.com

THE SUMMERY HEAT DIDN’T STOP HER FROM SHARING CHRIST.
These are the synonyms of “Lukewarm” Attitudes found in the church and on Dictionary.com See if any of them describe your attitude. If so, ask God for forgiveness and for strength to become “HOT” for HIM!

THE LUKEWARM CHURCH OF
THE KINGDOM AGE
THE KINGDOM AGE
You and I are living in the last of the END DAYS, which has been going on for the past 2,000 years since the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in 33 A.D. Something spectacularly, supernatural and wonderful is coming upon the Earth that has never happened before. It was prophesied in Joel chapter two of the Bible. This phenomenal period of unbelievable miracles will be so wonderful, they will talked about for thousands of years into the future.
It will start as Joel 2:28 says in the Holy Bible: God will pour out His Holy Spirit upon ALL FLESH, which means every person in every nation, on all seven continents, on the Earth will feel the magnificent presence and love of God. There will be signs and wonders in the sky, and miracles that most have only seen in the movies.
People ‘s missing body parts will grow back; diseased organs will be replaced with new ones from Heaven by angels; at a funeral, the dead will come back to life and the dead's cremated dust will whirl back, giving life to the deceased; lava and fire from a volcano eruption will reverse and go back into the volcano; hospitals will be emptied of the sick and injured.
Jesus said to pray this way:
Our Father which art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom Come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. (Kingdom Age)
Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Many unbelievers will find out there is a real GOD! They can accept and believe in His Son Jesus Christ as their Savior and go straight to Heaven or reject Him and go straight to Hell when they die. THIS WILL BE THE LAST CHANCE FOR EVERYONE ON EARTH TO DECIDE WHAT THEY BELIEVE. Not sure how long the Great Awakening will last but I personally believe it will last 7 years, based on the 7 prosperous years of Joseph in Egypt
