For those who seek the Lord know there is no greater protection over them and when we put our complete confidence and trust in him our lives gain more worth. “The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee”.(Psalm 9:9,10).
When we love and seek the knowledge of God there is a myriad of blessings that follow the life of the believer. We inherit durable and unspeakable treasures as we read in proverbs as wisdom is speaking to us of it’s sound doctrine if followed! “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgement: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures”.(Proverbs 8:17-21).
The time will come when all decision making is over and the time of choosing has arrived for all. If the wicked still choose their wickedness they will be tormented and even if they seek death then death will flee from them for not wanting to serve God. For when the fifth angel sounds as revelation says there will be a great locust army that will have power upon the earth to harm those who have not the seal (God’s wisdom) in their foreheads. “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree,; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them”.(Revelation 9:4-6).
If we seek God out of a sincere heart and true repentance he is merciful and hopes than none should perish. Now is the time of repentance for no one knows the hour of which the Lord returns and we need to be prepared to see him with a clear conscious. “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart”. (Jeremiah 29:11-13).
