"Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands far away; for truth has stumbled in the public squares, and uprightness cannot enter. Truth is lacking and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.” (Isaiah 59:14-15)
June 12, 2018 - How true do these words of Isaiah from so long ago ring today? Where can one find truth or righteousness in the world today?
For when anyone stands against the evil forces in this world, he is immediately ridiculed and make to look as if he is the evil instead of those who are persecuting him.
As we see the great injustices being perpetrated in America and around the world we must take heart and know that there is a time coming, which we do not know, when all will be reconciled to the Lord God. A time when all will be judged and repaid for their works on earth, both good and evil.
Let us as followers of the Most High God remember this and have faith in him who controls the universe, knowing that he will take care of his own, that no one or no thing can separate us from the love of God, that only our own lack-of-faith can do so.
“According to their deeds, so will he repay, wrath to his adversaries, repayment to his enemies;” (Isaiah 59:18)
For all those who profess alternative life styles to what the Bible teaches, he will bring wrath, but to those who follow his words and his will he will bring an eternity of bliss, lived with him in the new heaven.
“For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” (Galatians 6:8)
“Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealously, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19-21)
Wow!!! The very things we see that the world is full of today. The earth is controlled by Satan and his works are in full bloom for all to see and take part in. I warn you, stay away or perish and suffer for eternity.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)
Is this not what you seek, the joy and peace that the world cannot give you?
“And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.” (Galatians 5:24-26)
May you walk with the Lord today, may you be redeemed by our Lord this day and may his grace and peace be yours forever…
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.” (Galatians 6:18)
