Spring will soon come to the Northern Hemisphere. And if the Beautiful Lord tarries we will see all the grandeur that is new life here. In this I speak of new leaves, flowers, babies a plenty, and a comforting season.
And if the Lord moves to close the window of opportunity in this place, His people will see a Spring that never ceases. Everything dressed in eternal splendor, that is the place of his promise. The joy of lambs leaping, and all beautiful things. Hearts that never cease to be glad.
Having said that, I consider what His moving means. How glorious things will be Life (Eternal reality) for so many; the sure promise of God unveiled to his people.
But I consider the meaning of his moving for those who have despised His rule. A winter of fire forever. A place where Spring is no longer spoken. A place where the warm rain is tears falling down. A place where hope is never realized. A place where impossibility is king. A place where ownership means shame. A place of horror and oppressive fear. As surely as they have chosen, alienation from the Living God’s beauty, is theirs forever. If they have suffered in this place, rejecting God’s offer of Help in Christ, how much more will they suffer for having despised the Grace of God? I have no right to speak of God’s promised Eternal Spring, without exposing his promise of destruction.
In my mind I meant to write this article exposing the beauty of God’s glorious Spring, as opposed to the glory of Man’s work. But I got caught up in his promise, for good and for shame.
What is of God is obvious. What is a Man is likewise. For I know that he has said that we are without excuse. So perhaps it is perfectly reasonable that my mind was turned to the glory of God’s wise and righteous judgement with pure justice.
I wish I had the words that would turn every soul for the love of God in his good will to save us all. Then I would have no need to speak of the promise regarding destruction. Then I would be full of joy that could be shared to the prosperity of all who could hear. But the word wish is proper.
God will grant eyes and ears to those who will humble themselves and seek His Holy Face. He has promised to lead all such people to his Holy Christ .There is a righteousness that is given. That is the righteousness that belongs to the Christian.
Let this be enough for this place of writing. By what I have written, I am not full of joy. For a vast number will see destruction. This is not my opinion or speculation, it is the word of the Living God’s Holy Son.
The Living God has promised to give strength to those who begin and continue to call out for mercy. Please do so, that you too may taste the joy that is Spring Eternal.
