Our God is a consuming fire and the day will come when He will cleanse the earth once and for all of all unrighteousness. Oh how longsuffering and merciful God is,yet He will not allow the murder’s,rapes,lawlessness and outright hate to continue. The day of reckoning is inevitable on the horizon and the day of the Lord will come upon many as a thief in the night. This is not a day God is looking forward to for He wants none of us to perish,but that we will come to repentance and turn to Him!(2 Peter 3:7-13) 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Even John the baptist told of the one who was to be after him that would baptize with the holy spirit and with fire! One who would purge His floor and would one day burn the chaff that is seperated from the wheat(Luke 3:16,17).
It is only those who are unshaken and standing firmly in the Lord that will remain in the earth,serving God in fear for we know our God is a consuming fire(Hebrews 12:25-29).
Now is the time to examine our life and make sure it lines up with the word of God,before the day comes when we will no longer have any time to change what we know we should have. When the sixth seal is opened there will be those who will be in immense fear wanting the mountains and rocks to fall upon them in hopes it will hide them from the wrath of the Lamb(Revelation 6:12-17) 12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
