The cause and effects of the fall of Jerusalem…
How fitting that my daily Bible study, from the Ap Mission 119, began the book of Lamentations, which is written about the fall of Jerusalem after they’ve turned away from God. God allows cause and effect to occur in history because His people have turned away from Him.
Oh the similarities i see compared to the US of A at present. I believe this Bible study was recorded somewhere around 2010, long before our current president and the pandemic we face, along with the political cesspool that has polluted our nation.
Has God removed His favor? Would it be any wonder?
Though God may remove His favor from our nation, the Bible is clear that He will save His people for eternity. Eternity. That is far longer than the past year we’ve endured. Memes on social media provide some comic relief to the stress we are all facing, and highlight (or lowlight) the year 2020. The reality, however, is that eternity is a mighty long time. We will spend eternity either with the King or in the pit of Hell.
The time is short to get your life and your heart right with God. It is time to turn your focus to Him and not to the things of this world. Sure, we live in the world, but only so that we make disciples for Him.
He will not turn away from His people, the people who love Him and serve Him. The Bible says all you must do is believe in Him… accept the sacrifice He made for you for the forgiveness of your sins… ask Him to come into your heart. Today and reign as King Supreme over your life!
He is waiting for you… the Bible says He tarries not because he is slow but because He wants to give as many people as possible an opportunity to be saved. (2 Peter 3:9). What must you do to be saved? Ask Him to reign in your heart.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
In all ways, acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths. (Proverbs 3:5)
I am praying for you, today, my friends. Some of you may not know Gods saving grace. Some of you may not yet know His power and His love. I pray that you keep searching… for when you seek Him with all of your heart, you will find Him. Oh the assurance I have, knowing that this world is not my home… my home is to spend eternity with the King of Kings in the place He has prepared for me. Let that be your place as well, my friends.
