The Lord in his mercy is giving a strong exhortation.
This is a word that I am taking to heart, and bringing before Him in repentance. For there is much He’s given me to say and do, and I have tarried.
In love and in mercy He is wanting to turn our nation and the world back to Him.
He has given many messages to deliver, words to share, so that people would hear and turn – hear and repent – even as Ninevah did – in sackcloth and ashes, in fasting and prayer.
So that He will turn and relent.
He desires to bring a blessing. He desires to turn back judgement. But our sins have reached up to heaven.
So often we think that our words aren’t that meaningful. We feel like our rebelliousness is only between us and God.
But, beloved there is so much more at stake.
It is time for the voices of God to arise. It is time for the trumpets to be blown. It is time to declare – in love – repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.
Just like our Savior Jesus did. In love He spoke these words, right before He told Peter and the other disciples, follow Me.
For soon we will be saying…”Look up….for our redemption draws neigh.”
As in the days of Noah
As in the days of Jonah
As in the days of us.
