Aloud voice crying out in the streets looking for someone to hear what the Lord has to say, though after the He has saved them and restored their households they blew their trumpets declaring and calling out a war against Him; the Lord looked but there was no good men there was not one righteous intercessor..instead all has grabbed hold to sin and rejected Him and turned their back to Him, intentionally sabotaging His good deeds and belittling His identity’s fruits in their lives..
Human-beings by nature we gravitate toward peoples who we believe enough in them to go to war with us and they believe enough in us to go to war with them.
Imagine what God our Father might say —After He prepared us for His army by many ways, and conditions, through various tribulations, calamities, setbacks and extreme hardships- to come out of it all restored, pure and our hearts are white as snow, feeling much joyful, our trust and faith much stronger. He sees what is in our hearts and He knows our intentions..
What just might He say?
If we deny Him, His Love, grace and mercy, if we become ungrounded, rooted instead in this life over His glory, forgetting His long history of long list of the lifetime Blessings that He has imparted into our lives? And not only so but more so ignoring and rejecting Him as our only God, our Father and our only King.
As a parent dealing with my children’s ups and downs I can only feel what He feels and it can be joyful and rewarding or stressful, crushing to my soul, wildly painful and radically miserable..
God did not send Moses to Pharaoh to ask him saying “Let my people go” so they can go back to the promised land, no God asked Moses to bring them out of Egypt to the wilderness so He can meet them as their only One true living God and savor and prepare them for war and transform them to be holy people complete in Him before they go into the Holy land. God always looking for ways to help us be prepared and ready for war and be complete in him to be in his image pointing people back Him to be saved before the end of times. God wants us to be like Him and in His image in our acts whenever we encounter peoples and look at them through the eyes of love, redemption and grace, Not judgment, condemnation and disgrace..
Think about this for a second, I assure you it will transform your life, to live it in a way that you will see yourself and your fellowship with God our Father much deeper, much closer, it will offer the path to a greater bond which no one or anything can break out for eternity..
27 who say to a tree, ‘You are my father,’
and to a stone, ‘You gave me birth.’
For they have turned their back to me,
and not their face.
But in the time of their trouble they say,
‘Arise and save us!’
28 But where are your gods
that you made for yourself?
Let them arise, if they can save you,
in your time of trouble;
for as many as your cities
are your gods, O Judah.
My anguish, my anguish! I writhe in pain!
Oh the walls of my heart!
My heart is beating wildly;
I cannot keep silent,
for I hear the sound of the trumpet,
the alarm of war.
20 Crash follows hard on crash;
the whole land is laid waste.
Suddenly my tents are laid waste,
my curtains in a moment.
21 How long must I see the standard
and hear the sound of the trumpet?
22 “For my people are foolish;
they know me not;
they are stupid children;
they have no understanding.
They are ‘wise’—in doing evil!
But how to do good they know not.”
-but what will you do when the end comes?
(Psalm 34:9) “Oh, Fear The LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him HAVE NO LACK!” (have everything)
It’s true that the Bible repeatedly tells us to fear God: “Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him” (Psalm 33:8)
The Word of God the “Bible” Defines fear of the Lord in (Proverbs 9:10) “10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” and it isn’t until we understand this fear we can measure the level of our daily commitment to our fellowship and constant clinging to His Holy Spirit.
It isn’t until we know the Fear of the LORD;
we gain wisdom and find His love, mercy and grace and then from there..
We Praise Him,
We obey Him and submit to Him,
and live by Faith in Him to honor Him for who He is..
And we move, and we run,
and keep on running to pursue hard His heart,
Then we lead others to the same level of fear to be transformed to be renewed into a new image, the image of “Christlike”.
Many nations found it and many tribes ignored it,
This is the Love of fear that generates the ultimate Love itself.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. 8 It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bone.
16 Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.
The Holy Spirit is a person like us but very different, He is a Spirit not made out of matter like us, He is God,
The 3rd member of the Godhead (God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit),
We live by the Spirit and Faith not by sight,
He is within us,
Always ready to take away our sorrows and fears, And
Always ready to help us conquer,
Always on the standby to bring us peace, healing and comfort,
Always points us to Christ,
Always wondering why on earth we wander off away from this path?
Always points us to forgiveness not condemnation,
Always intentionally praying for us and for our salvation and sanctification,
Always seeks us, always waiting for us to do what is right, and let it out of our mouth, And
Say the word “Come, come, come to me my God, my helper and my healer, come and take over.. When we do not..
It grieves Him when resist His voice and doubt Him,
It really makes Him feel unhappy when we turn not to Him but on Him..
If we confess our sins..
He is faithful to us, waiting to forgive us all our trespasses, all our unrighteousness,
He protects us, only if we let Him and restores our hearts when we ask Him,
He gets sad and insulted when we deny Him and ignore Him..and
It breaks His heart when we do not pray and do not listen to His voice speaking to us.
He is shy, kind and mighty
He is God, He created all we know and what we do not know, and what we see and what we can not see, the book of Genesis tells us He was here from the beginning hovering over the earth and moving everywhere and we know that He is everywhere..He is in need of nothing and..Always in control of what is in control..
He gives us the gifts which are important but more important are the fruits, He cares about what He can do through us, for us and in us more than what we can do for Him (Good works/deeds). Truly, that we have been saved by His grace through faith never by our good works.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV) 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
