” The Nations Weighed “

thCAST5TI9

If we would stand back and see just how vast God is it is hard to comprehend that he has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and even weigh’s the mountains in scales! How can we not reverence such majesty? Yet to him the nations are a drop in a bucket and are as dust in his sight. (Isaiah 40:12-17). Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him? With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding? Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

 

 

The scales of injustice are dipping deeply toward such a judgment from God that he cannot stay his hand from pouring his wrath out upon the ungodly. It is easy for some to get puffed up with pride, yet the actions we choose will all be weighed by him one day. (1 Samuel 2:2,3).There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.

 

 

For all who truly love the Lord this wrath is nothing they fear, as he has said he will keep his people from the hour of temptation and for the elect’s sake will he shorten the days. (Revelation 3:10,11), Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.(Matthew 24:22).

 

No one wants to think God would ever be so angry he would pour out wrath, but how long is he suppose to look upon evil and wickedness some choose over him without stepping in to say ENOUGH! To those who worship the beast and receive his mark then God who is righteous is left to carry out his will, and herein shows the patience of the saints who do his commandments. (Revelation 14:9-13). And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
