I STAND IN AWE!
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses. Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him. For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. —Psalm 33:6-9
To not worship the Lord God Almighty but to ignore Him, to stand against Him, to dishonor Him, to despise Him, to speak against Him, to blaspheme Him and to encourage others away from Him… is truly foolish, wicked and an eternal living death sentence — “Then they will go away to eternal punishment” and “anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire” and “the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” (Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:10, 15).
Who would willingly stand in front of an on-coming train? What person would place themselves in front of a canon about to be discharged? It would be those who are not thinking correctly. So it is with those who “ignore Him, stand against Him, dishonor Him, despise Him, speak against Him, blaspheme Him and encourage others away from Him. But there is still “hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will” (II Timothy 2:25-26). Here what people who do not want to follower the Lord Jesus don’t understand— instead of doing God’s will they are actually 1- Don’t have a knowledge of the truth about life 2- Have not come to their senses 3- Are trapped by the devil 4- Are taken captive by the devil 5- Are doing the devil’s will. People are either following the Lord Jesus or they are following the devil. Those are the only two possibilities. A person can deny this but they are either following God or the devil. They are either fearing God, revering Him or they are being deceived by in following Satan. That is the fact of the matter.
Truly, how would you feel if you were in a spaceship out of control and headed for the sun? You know the end is not going to be good. Well, you are headed in time to meet the Lord, the One who created the sun and all the universe by just speaking it into existence. Do you really want to stand against Him? The end will not be good for you. Oh, if you have not called on the Name of the Lord Jesus, please do so and He “will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD6khv6pGkw&t=44s
Dear Father, what a Wonder You are. You are so grand and glorious and it is truly astounding that You would even consider me or any person on this planet. But I surely am glad that You have considered us, that You love us and have sent Jesus to save us. Out of loving gratitude may I love You and live for You in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZrvLRgHaVY
