Repent, repent, repent, for judgment is coming!
Obviously there can be no other message. Righteousness exalts a nation, and our God’s statutes and commandments have been rejected, scorned and laughed at. We have legislated on every level of government against righteousness as a whole population is subjected to the pain, torment and despair of every kind of evil practice.
“And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence among them, till they are consumed from the land that I gave to them and their fathers.” ( Jer. 24:10; top )
“…Repent now everyone of his evil way and his evil doings, and dwell in the land that the Lord has given to you and your fathers… Do not go after other gods to serve them and worship them, and do not provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands; and I will not harm you.” ( Jer. 25:5-6; top )OTHERWISE: “The anger of the Lord will not turn back until He has executed and performed the thoughts of His heart. In the latter days you will understand it perfectly.” ( Jer. 23:20; top )
Who will be the Lord’s servant, as was Nebuchadnezzer to Israel, to make the land desolate, to recompense us according to our deeds? Our enemies are increasing on all borders. Will we leave our sentimental Bible studies to enter into a place of deep repentance on our faces before God, or will we listen to the prophets who say “everything will be fine”?
“I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran (claim I did); I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in My counsel and caused My people to hear My words, they should have turned (My people) them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings.” ( Jer. 23:21-22; top ) “…But now He (God) commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has fixed a day on which He will judge in righteousness…” ( Acts 17:30; top )
Lord, may your judgment be subject to your great mercy!
