Jeremiah 50:24,31-32 reads as follows:
I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the Lord. Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee. And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
The Lord is always the one who guides and directs the times and things that take place. A lot of what we see is due to the fall and we want to say that it’s God’s fault. I tell you today, we can’t even understand the vastness of the smallest sin. We can’t understand this truth when it comes to the HOLY GOD ALMIGHTY. No matter how far we come in this spiritual walk, we are still so far from being GOD. We see in verse 24 that they were not aware and then they were found and caught.
Today realize that you are unaware
We’re all unaware of much that goes on all around us. We can either look to the protection that only God gives us or the sin that runs rampant. Keep your focus on Him and stay on your knees. Stay in the understanding that we are not worthy but You have counted us worthy Lord. Be ready to serve in any way He sees fit. Take God’s Word and truly understand how dangerous it is to strive against The Lord. Hit your knees now and repent if God has dealt with you about a sin in your life. Do you need Jesus today and have never accepted Him as your savior? Call unto Him and He is faithful to save you. He died and rose again so we may be able to place our trust on what He did (not what we do).
Accept that Jesus is the only answer and trust in Him now
Praise The Lord we are joint heirs with Christ. We are adopted and loved by God today through Jesus Christ. Don’t let the Old Testament get you mixed up. Mercy is what we live under today. We are living in the day of seeing such mercy from God. He is only allowing this so those that will accept Jesus for salvation will do so. I believe the time is short and we must share this truth more and more. The rapture of the church will happen on His timing and only when God says so and not one minute sooner. That said, we need to live as if today is the last day and those that we come in contact with might need salvation. Wake up soldier and understand the eternal difference if we don’t speak up and allow those needing Christ to not hear.
Ephesians 2:1-6 reads as follows:
And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
