The One True Living God is a Holy God!
He is an all consuming fire………
God is a God of love and grace
He sent His Son to make a way of peace with man.
However…….without repentance YOU WILL BE JUDGED!
I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.
I will be filled with joy because of you.
I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.
My enemies retreated;
they staggered and died when you appeared.
For you have judged in my favor;
from your throne you have judged with fairness.
You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked;
you have erased their names forever.
The enemy is finished, in endless ruins;
the cities you uprooted are now forgotten.
But the Lord reigns forever,
executing judgment from his throne.
He will judge the world with justice
and rule the nations with fairness.
The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed,
a refuge in times of trouble.
Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.
Sing praises to the Lord who reigns in Jerusalem.
Tell the world about his unforgettable deeds.
For he who avenges murder cares for the helpless.
He does not ignore the cries of those who suffer.
Lord, have mercy on me.
See how my enemies torment me.
Snatch me back from the jaws of death.
Save me so I can praise you publicly at Jerusalem’s gates,
so I can rejoice that you have rescued me.
The nations have fallen into the pit they dug for others.
Their own feet have been caught in the trap they set.
The Lord is known for his justice.
The wicked are trapped by their own deeds.
The wicked will go down to the grave.
This is the fate of all the nations who ignore God.
But the needy will not be ignored forever;
the hopes of the poor will not always be crushed.
Arise, O Lord!
Do not let mere mortals defy you!
Judge the nations!
Make them tremble in fear, O Lord.
Let the nations know they are merely human.
What is wrong with mankind? Why do we persist in believing we are so intelligent and so wise that we need not fear a real God?
Look around you! The world is a mess!
It is a result of what mankind does when given free will. God gave us our free will when He created the world. Everything that happens on this earth is OUR fault! We are arrogant fools that believe we are in control and can do anything we want.
God has always known how pitiful mankind would be without Him. Even so…..He in His wisdom decided to give us free will to choose our paths. Every time……. mankind chose evil!
So…..in His infinite love and grace…..God made a way through His Son Jesus Christ. He is the only way. Choose Jesus Christ and God has mercy on your evil ways and forgives you. He will guide you and help you choose life and holiness.
It is your only chance. The alternative is God’s judgement. God will judge each person according to their deeds. All would perish except for their faith in Jesus Christ and obedience to Him. Without Jesus there is absolutely no hope for man.
Only a fool shakes his fist in defiance of a living God.
He created all things and controls all things.
God will also judge the nations in these last days! Do not think for a minute that life will just go on as it is. How foolish can you be? The nation that defies God will be brought to its knees. How long do you think the nations can decree their laws that go against His holy laws? How long can a people rebel in their wickedness?
How does a nation bring the rain? Or the sun for the crops?
How does a nation stop the hurricane or earthquake?
Mighty nations……mighty men
How will you stop the fury of the Lord?
