Have you ever gotten a present and you wondered what was inside? We have the greatest present of a lifetime. The Bible. Do you know what is inside?
Last night the Lord reminded me of a verse. I was praying for our nation and the world at 7:14. I encourage you to join me and many others to cry out for the nations from 2 Chronicles 7:14. You probably can quote it, but now is the time to put it into action.
Jeremiah 10:23-24 says, “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps. O Lord, correct me, but with justice; not in Your anger, lest You bring me to nothing.”
I linked that this morning with Proverbs 31:8 which says, “Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die.”
We, the ones who believe in Jesus, can cry out for those who are appointed to died. Hebrews 9:27 says, “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.”
I recently read the book of Revelation. There is judgment coming that is unparalleled with anything the world has ever known. God’s wrath was poured out on Jesus for our sins. What is coming will be His wrath poured out on all mankind.
Only the Lord knows what is inside man. He is a heart-reader. Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?”
Our role, according to God’s word, is to cry out for those who are perishing. Unbelievers are blinded, and have been squeezed into the world system. They are like mindless-robots being led by a master into destruction. They are being controlled by the lies of the deceiver. We have the Truth INSIDE us that we need to give out to those who are trapped.
They are being controlled as Ephesians 2:2-3 says. “…according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience…fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind…”
