“A people living in a time of peace cannot comprehend the daily emotions of a people living in a time of war.” -HSTB
Join us Monday Nights for the
Discernment Bible Study on Zoom
Time: 7:00-9:00 pm (EST)
My husband and I have extremely busy lives. Between work, family, ministry, friends...you name it, and it calls for our attention. Therefore, we take plenty of road trips to simply recharge.
On one such trip, I sat by the beach and I watched the peaceful waters gently hit the sandy shores and I remembered this Scripture:
“Do you not fear me? declares the Lord. Do you not tremble before me? I placed the sand as the boundary for the sea, a perpetual barrier that it cannot pass; though the waves toss, they cannot prevail; though they roar, they cannot pass over it.” Jeremiah 5:22 ESV
Yes, LORD, YOU indeed are worthy to be feared.
Then I did something I do often, and I asked the LORD, “What have these sands (lands) experienced? Since YOU created them, what have they witnessed from when YOU set the foundation of the earth upon the waters (Psalm 24:1-2)?”
HIS response shocked me. HE said, “Blood.”
The lands have seen and experienced blood.
Then HE, the HOLY SPIRIT of the LORD of HOSTS, took me to Ezekiel 14:12-14, and Ezekiel 14:21-23.
“And the word of the Lord came to me: ‘Son of man, when a land sins against me by acting faithlessly, and I stretch out my hand against it and break its supply of bread and send famine upon it, and cut off from it man and beast, even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness,’ declares the Lord God.” Ezekiel 14:12-14 ESV
How can land consistently sin against GOD? It must be the people living on it. See Numbers 35:33; Ezekiel 36:17-18; Psalm 106:38; Isaiah 24:5; Jeremiah 16:18; Leviticus 25-27; 2 Kings 10-13; Jeremiah 2:7, 3:1-10.
We cannot expect the justice and righteousness of GOD to be silent, not find expression, simply because the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST is on the Mercy Seat. Mercy is only for those who choose to access it and play by "mercy rules," meaning, holiness, righteousness, sanctification, and all those words that mean letting JESUS be the LORD and KING of our lives, rather than a buddy, boyfriend, best friend, warm feel-good blanket.
We must ask ourselves:
Is our nation under the righteous judgement from a HOLY and Righteous GOD? Or is it under blessing?
Analyze your nation with these three simple questions, based on the standards set out by the HOLY Bible, New King James Version (NKJV), King James Version (KJV), and other versions that have been around longer than 20-50 years.
1. Do we call evil good and good evil?
2. Do our church institutions teach the fullness of GOD’s WORD or do they bend it to fit the traditions and will of men?
3. Does your nation mistreat the widow, orphan, stranger (immigrant), poor?
If the answers to these questions is "yes," expect the justice and judgement of GOD on your nation.
This looks like economic decay, lawlessness, pestilence, national shame, famine, and even war. Look around you today. Do you see these signs in your communities and/or nation?
Yet in the midst of HIS Righteous Judgement, HE, the LORD SABAOTH, chooses to show mercy to HIS people by raising up a remnant.
“For thus says the Lord God: How much more when I send upon Jerusalem my four disastrous acts of judgment, sword, famine, wild beasts, and pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast! But behold, some survivors will be left in it, sons and daughters who will be brought out; behold, when they come out to you, and you see their ways and their deeds, you will be consoled for the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, for all that I have brought upon it. They will console you, when you see their ways and their deeds, and you shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, declares the Lord God.”
Ezekiel 14:21-23 ESV
This seems harsh to us, but which parent does not correct HIS children? Isaiah 1:9 tells us why GOD leaves a remnant. To preserve a nation. We, HIS remnant, preserve the nations of the world we live in.
Thank YOU, LORD, for leaving for YOURSELF a remnant. Those who hear YOUR Voice and obey.
Because we all know what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah. May this not happen in my nation, LORD, in JESUS’ NAME, Amen.
Rise up and be the remnant.
