Your Works, Oh GOD, are awesome, and by YOUR Great Power YOUR enemies will submit to you.
Since the rebellion of Lucifer, who wanted to exalt himself above the FATHER, he, along with his world system, has tried to thwart the Will of GOD, “But GOD,” as the Psalmist says, Will prevail. The writer of Proverbs tells us that it is the Plan of GOD that will be Victorious, no matter the plans of man or powers in high places. Jesus spoke in like manner when HE told Peter that on the Rock of Peter’s testimony of who HE is, the Gates of hell will not prevail.
Since the Garden, Satan, has tried to destroy GOD’S creation and has over the years tried his best to get rid of the Word of GOD and anyone who stands for Righteousness, and in all this he has failed miserably. The Church, and before us, the devil has tried to destroy those of faith and in every attempt the faith of GOD’S People has grown. Seven thousand would not bend the knee to Baal in Elijah’s time, and the LORD ALWAYS, preserved a Remnant of HIS people no matter what was going on to dissuade it. When Babylon sacked Jerusalem, GOD kept back those of Faith that Israel might be preserved, and many learned a lesson from what they suffered. Great men of Faith like Ezra and Nehemiah stood in the gap along with Ezekial and other prophets who would not be quiet but Proclaimed the Will of GOD and HIS Word.
It is the same today, as the People of GOD continue to Pray and seek the LORD, and I am of the opinion that it is because of the Prayers of HIS people that we are not destroyed. We have forgotten Our GOD and yet because of those who are committed to the LORD, HE spares a complete destruction, allowing us to be ruled by men who are only interested in the power they may attain but subjegating those who they are Supposed to Represent.
As People of GOD, our First Allegiance is the HIM, for we are, as Jesus said, to LOVE the LORD above All others and to follow HIS way. Whatever we put above the LORD will not prosper, for then it becomes an Idol and Idols are for the Lost who seek vindication by something they can see and be seen by others. We are to Put our hand to the Plow and not turn back, as Israel wanted to do after Moses brought them out of Egypt. Jesus told us that those who turn back are not worthy of HIM, for the world is an enemy of GOD’S way. This is the Sin that destroys, denying GOD and HIS Work for our Salvation, for HE is not willing that Any should perish. In this Plan, GOD, sent forth HIS Son to Reconcile us to HIM, for HE Loves us So.
Many, today, would like to see another Great Awakening, but how can the dead be Awakened, unless those who Live are Awakened first? In this day the Church needs a Revival of Epic proportions, and usually that Revival begins in the Heart of a Few. A few who are totally committed to GOD’S Will and not their own, for it is GOD’S Will that will stand. The Great Awakening of the 1800’s was sparked by only 1, who would not be deterred from his need for Revival. Nehemiah Set his Face Towards Jerusalem and set forth to rebuild. We have suffered great loss because of our unwillingness to put our faith in GOD, and it is time to Return. It may be a small Church in some small town in America that will spark a Revival or it may be just one person whose heart is set on the things of GOD, one with a Pure heart, who will spark a Worldwide Revival. Christianity started with One, Jesus, and a Few set the World Upside down. I pray that others will join me in Prayer for Revival, Praying the LORD help them to draw nearer to HIM that HE may Work in our lives to Spark and set Aflame the Revival that this World Needs.
The nations of this world have All fallen away, the governments have All turned aside to chase Lucifer and his system, but in Every nation resides the Faithful, until the LORD says, “Enough is Enough,” then we will truly Reap what has been Sown. No one knows when that will be, could be today or in the next few minutes, but we Can Reach out to HIM and at least be saved from the Trouble that is coming on this world.
Salvation is an Individual thing, for the LORD works in One Heart at a Time, and through those One Hearts, HE Saves many more, for it is mainly through the witness of Us that others are also Saved. Let us show forth the LOVE of GOD to those who are Perishing, whether they receive it or not, that is not our business, for it is GOD who saves and Draws people to HIS SON that they may have life, our Job is to Proclaim HIM UNTIL HE COMES. Let the Redeemed Say So, and Let us not be accounted with the Unrighteous, but let our Testimony be Strong and Full of Faith, not just on the Surface but in the Spirit. For those who Worship do so in Spirit and Truth, and the fruits of the SPIRIT, will be evident in their lives. Our goal is for the World to See Jesus and not us, but HIM THROUGH US.
Seek the LORD while HE may be found, and turn, wholeheartedly, towards the LORD, for “Behold! I Am coming Quickly, hold fast what you have that no one may take your crown.” Rev. 3 HE is to be our First Love, Above All others! Jesus Loves You!!!
