Make your vows to the LORD your God and perform them; let all around him bring gifts to him who is to be feared, who cuts off the spirit of princes, who is to be feared by the kings of the earth. —Psalm 76:11-12

            How many rulers of the earth truly fear God?   Where are they in authority whose concern it to be faithful to our Lord as first priority? Is there any such a one who truly understands that their life is in His hands? Of all the nations of the earth do any in authority exist that fear Him? If so, may they look to the Lord and be faithful to Him at all costs. May they govern for the glory of our Lord God Almighty and for the good of the people they have been given responsibility over.

            The rulers of the Lord should fear the Lord. They should live and rule in such a way as to honor Him.   Unfortunately it does not appear to happen very much. I do know all the rulers of the nations. Hopefully there are some that truly fear the Lord, but the vast majority surely do not.

            But there will be a generation of earthly rulers who will come to a point of fearing our Lord God Almighty. Unfortunately they will be fearing the judgment that will be upon them. We read this in Revelation 6:12-17.

I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”

            Yes there is coming a time when everything will be put into perspective and the rulers of this world will know that they are not ultimately in control.   They will see the Lamb coming, but He will be coming as a Lion in judgment. They will be fearing Him at that time, but not to serve Him. No they will be fearing because they will know God’s wrathful judgment is upon them and they will seek to hide from Him. But there is no hiding from Him.

            So it is now. People may not fear Him now. They may not want to live for Him now. But whether they are alive at the time of Jesus’ return or not, they will see Him.   All who do not fear Him now in desiring to love and live for Him will experience His wrathful judgment and be thrown into the Lake of Fire where they will be forever (Revelation 20:15).  

            Praise God for all who fear Him now and are loving and living for Him now. No judgment will come to them. For those who do not know Him… today is the day of salvation! Do not hesitate to call on the Name of the Lord to save you from sin and to a relationship with Him.

Thank You Father that I need not fear judgment in Jesus.   May I truly love and live for You!
