The Day of the Lord
Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy. For He shall make even a speedy riddance (end) of all them that dwell in the land (Zephaniah 1:18).There is a side of God no one wants to talk about, we talk about His unconditional love, His longsuffering, how God wants us to prosper, but there is a side of God people should be aware of. The messages today; is give the people what they want to hear to keep them happy. Teach the people to rely on Grace and no matter what they do they will enter into heaven. This lie is from the pits of hell, God has given us instructions through His written Word the way He wants His people live.
Some may say this scripture was only pertaining to the Babylonians, but this scriptures is for this present time and future of the coming of the Lord. God is the Teacher and we’re the students; just as s secular teacher gives written instructions and teach the students, they expect them to follow the instructions and comprehend in order to excel academically. God has left His written Word of instructions for us to follow and in order to excel to the kingdom of God, the student must follow the instructions.
We cannot live a life that denies the holiness of God and expect to enter into heaven. There will be a day the Lord will return and whether one believes He’s coming or deny there is a Son of God, it will not interfere or delay the day of His coming. We must be a prepared people for His coming. Jesus instructed His disciples whoever followed Him, had to deny themselves and take up their cross daily. Nothing is too hard to do when we have a made up mind and heart, and that is what it’s going to take to follow God’s written instructions.
