“He allowed no one to oppress them;
for their sake he rebuked kings:
Do not touch my anointed ones;
do my prophets no harm.” (1 Chronicles 16: 22)
The Glory of the Lord has gone out as a testimony through His people. But who, among the world, has listened? Who, among his people, has believed?
The world does not perceive the Holy power of God among men. And so they continue in their way.
They hate God, for they perceive he interrupts their joy and ambition. They cannot touch him so they reach out to his people.
In the past God has reached out to such men. First to warn them. Then to restrain them. Finally to destroy them.
The promises of God are sure. And all his judgments are righteous and lasting. The Holy One is the same yesterday, today and forever.
While patient endurance escapes those who hate the Lord, they are brought back to sanity by the power of His Holy hand. As it was in centuries past so it shall be forever.
But who among men is wise to perceive what is? They attribute misfortune to the chaotic ways of this world. They do not perceive what is, as it might come from the Living God.
This is of their willing blindness. This is of their stubborn rebellion. They are blinded in their unholy desire.
Come then, and continue on with what you will not cease. Despise, ridicule and litigate against the Lord’s people. He is strong enough to cause all men endurance; the evil endure in their evil ways. While the righteous endure with holy perseverance.
His promise is true for those who diligently seek His face. His promise is also true against those who hate him and despise his rule over them.
Come then, and continue on with what you will not cease. If you love him, then continue. If you hate him, then by all means, continue. Both groups will see the end of God’s Just response.
By His Grace
