It is said that if you laugh the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone. Jesus told us of these days to come, a world in turmoil, a world of greed and intolerance for the righteous believers in Christ.
We are a people set apart from the rest of the world.
We will not be forsaken in our time of need.
Our bellies shall be filled, our backs shall be clothed and our spirit lifted. In the time of fire and brimstone, we shall be covered by His wings of love, and in the times of war we shall be shielded by His shield of mercy and power.
I have not seen the righteous forsaken, for the promises of our Lord are true and binding. We may hunger for a time, but after the will of God is done, we shall be filled and want not for any good thing.
Do you believe that the Lord has left you, do you believe that some strange thing has happen to you, do you also feel alone?
Think not that these things are a punishment, or that the Lord has forgotten you. For if the spirit of our Lord and His Christ dwell within you, you are secure in the beloved.
What we all must remember is that the Biblical prophecies shall be fulfilled, many say in this generation.
Let us read and understand God will.
“He wandereth abroad for bread, (Speaking of the unrighteous.)saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.”
The fear of these times shall make many afraid, they shall consume them. They shall ask for aid but it will not come, they shall ask for food and it shall be withheld from them, they shall say peace and safety and sudden destruction shall come upon them quickly. Praise be unto the Lord.
In these end days we are seeing, earthquakes, famine and disease. We have been told that these days shall come and will not terry. As Jesus suffered, we shall also suffer, but not to the point that we lose our faith in Him.
I cannot feed the world, I cannot heal every Christian, but I know that my Redeemer liveth. I know that when it is time we shall all be delivered, be fed, be healed and clothed with the righteousness of our Father in Heaven. Do not despair in these troubling times, but rejoice, again I say rejoice that we are counted worthy to suffer as a righteous people, for the sake of Christ and the Glory of the Father.
They have found whale bones in the middle of the Sahara Desert, fish bones, and sea shells, on top of the alps, but men still require proof that Gods word is true. God turned this world into a vast sea to destroy the wicked, He has turned lush ground into a desert place, He turned Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes because of their sins, can He not fed His children?
We as believers in Christ do not turn to the world in times of danger, nor troubles, but we turn unto Him whose riches out weigh even this entire world.
To show our faith in Him, we must turn to Him before any, we must believe and trust in Him, never forgetting that we have an audience with Him, a High priest before Him, taking our prayers directly to Him. For as it is written, we are justified, sanctified and glorified in Him.
“He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.”
King David knew of the righteousness of God, he knew of Gods mercy, and he knew of Gods love for His Children.
From the psalms of David we are reminded;
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. (When you are tried and tested, the Lord is still with you.)
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.(Davids testimony of Gods provisioning power over hunger that will face many.) (We are the seed of Abraham, we are the seed of God, we are made in His image and in His likeness.)
He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.(Those that believe in Him, and follow His Son.)
Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. (Life everlasting.)
For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints(To abandon; to renounce; or to reject.); they are preserved for ever(To keep or save from injury or destruction; to defend from evil.): but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.”
Shall we not believe in Him, shall we perish at the hands of hunger, of hate, of unrighteousness? Shall we perish at the hands of war, or persecution? Shall we go naked, shall we forsake Him that preserves? Shall we not do all we can do and then stand? Shall we not praise the Lord for His excellency greatness, standing tall, testifying of His Christ and live?
This is not the time to cry alone, this is not the time to doubt, this is the time to stand upon our feet, shouting the praises of God, sing a song of greatness, play a tune of invitation to others, bring offering of love, offering ourselves as a living sacrifice unto the Lord, which is our reasonable duty.
Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice(To experience joy and gladness in a high degree; to be exhilarated with lively and pleasurable sensations; to exult.). My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.”
You are not crying alone, you do not hunger alone, you do not stand alone, we are with you, we are your brothers and sister in Christ, seek not the things of this world but the things that are of God.
Luke 1:53 Job 15:23-24 Psa 37:23-29 Psa 63:1-11 Webster,TSK,KJV.
