“Please don’t go. I love You, so. The seasons are dying – the enemy lying. He thrashes to and fro, and all the more this fig tree’s generation grows. Where Your Love once stood has now become a reprobate hood.
Revelation 12 is here, and Your people perish, unaware – some who know and most do not. Will Your shepherds stay silent? Will they continue to sleep? Where is Your fire down in their deep? Wake them up, Lord! Move their dry bones. Breathe on them, or more will die. Don’t they hear the cries of mourning?
Take me to Your secret place, where Your love abounds and peace remains. ‘Cast down your cares, dearest soul; and, put your mind to rest. I’ve got this. God is Love; and the joy of the Lord is My strength; and joy comes in the morning.’
Thank You, Lord.”
Bible GateWay Word of the Day: [ Comfort in Suffering ] Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4, NKJV)
“Enter through the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who go through it..” (Matthew 7:13 HCSB)
Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in loving kindness and truth; who keeps loving kindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.”Moses made haste to bow low toward the earth and worship. He said, “If now I have found favor in Your sight, O Lord, I pray, let the Lord go along in our midst, even though the people are so obstinate, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your own possession.” (Exodus 19:6-9, NASB)
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from serving as My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your sons. (Hosea 4:6, HCSB)
..if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14, NKJV)
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit. (James 5:16-18, NKJV)
Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. (1 Timothy 1:13-14, NKJV)
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:8, NIV)
Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto him for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye grieved; for the joy of Jehovah is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10, ASV)
His anger lasts only a moment. But his kindness lasts for a lifetime. Crying may last for a night. But joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5, ICB)
