Still

The magnitude of sin in the world is great, for chapter upon chapter has been written to entice man into a world of the unknown; a world of darkness and evil of every kind. Much to the dismay of man, this practice has been honored and protected, kept alive by the court system once developed to protect.

Shame

My heart cries out for the innocent, the unprotected, the children of the lost. My little lambs bleating for a mother. A Savior bleeding for the mothers that refuse to receive–refuse to believe

Refuse

It is a hard life one chooses to live, in a cold and loveless state of bitterness. A hard heart, encouraged to callous, becomes harder still then–

Still

The opportunity gone, for the life was taken. And still the lambs bleat–still the Savior bleeds for the lost.

Another life was taken; refusing to believe…

They wouldn’t receive…

Still.

“The earth lies polluted under its inhabitants; for they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse devours the earth, and its inhabitants suffer for their guilt; therefore the inhabitants of the earth are scorched, and few men are left.” Isaiah 24:5-6

“Do you not know that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But by your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. For he will render to every man according to his works; to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immorality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are factious and do not obey the truth, but obey wickedness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for every one who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality.” Romans 2:4b-11

“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning in travail together until now; and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.” Romans 8:18-23

“Wail for the day of the Lord is near; as destruction from the Almighty it will come!” Isaiah 13:6

“Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! Why would you have the day of the Lord? It is darkness, and not light; as if a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house and leaned with his hand against the wall, and a serpent bit him. Is not the day of the Lord darkness, and not light, and gloom with no brightness in it?” Amos 5:18-20

“I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pride of the arrogant, and lay low the haughtiness of the ruthless.” Isaiah 13:11

“Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will be shaken out of its place, at the wrath of the Lord of hosts in the day of his fierce anger.” Isaiah 13:13

“Open the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps faith may enter in. Thou dost keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusts in thee. Trust in the Lord for ever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” Isaiah 26:2-4

“The way of the righteous is level; thou dost make smooth the path of the righteous.” Isaiah 26:7

“Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the wrath is past. For behold, the Lord is coming forth out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity, and the earth will disclose the blood shed upon her, and will no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20-21

“‘Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 12:2

    • I’ve missed all of you and blogging too! It was so hard for me to post this. When He spoke this to me and I read it, I shuddered. So sobering. As you said ‘warning’ and a wake up call. But, the good news is, it is not too late and there is hope and forgiveness for all!

  1. You know I used to tell the Lord that I wanted to see the day when He would come. One day He simply said “You don’t want to see that day.” and then sent me to that scripture, Amos 5:18-20. I had not read that before. I don’t ask to see that day anymore. I am very thankful that He waits.
