Deliverance Of Gods People
Scripture tells us the time before Christs return will be as labor pains of a woman travailing in childbirth, God says the earth will be in great upset and travail to usher in HIS Kingdom. He is preparing HIS people for the New World HIS New Jerusalem. But things will get worse before they get better, for the sins of man will fill the cup of Gods wrath to the tipping point and then it will be poured out upon the nations! (Isaiah 13:8-11). And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
How can we look around today and not see the sign of the times as we turn on the news channel to see yet another hit by Isis as our President claims calmly we will put an end to this madness, yet is it any wonder that after days that have turned into months he has no plan and we are left feeling hopeless. WE NEED to open our bibles and read of the only hope given us of this time that was foretold of the liberty which can only be found in Christ! As the whole creation travails in pain together. (Isaiah 26:17,18) Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O Lord.We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen…..(Romans 8:21-25).
God will at once deliver HIS people and not forsake them! How can a Loving and Sovereign God sit still any longer when man has chose his way over Gods and not think there would not be a penalty or for serving a graven image and say it is their god! (Isaiah 42:13-17). The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies. I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once. I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.
