*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*ARE YOU AWARE OF GOD'S VENGEANCE?*
Rom 9:17 *For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
The reason why the enemy is still raging is because they do not understand the mystery of vengeance
Those who fear God fear His anger.
Nahum 1:6-7 says, "Who can stand before his indignation?" And who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.*
His vengeance is real. His recompense will be worse than the trouble you originally afflicted, 2 Thess 1:6.
When you fear God, you will first think how God would feel if you did the wrong you were thinking of doing.
God is love, and He is exceptionally loving, but He can be angry.
Our enemies are raging at us today because they do not know the mystery behind vengeance.
God vengeance is not mild. It is very fierce.
Many in the scriptures did not live or how much more wished they had life to regret their actions. Life of Eli is a good example.
Those who suffered His anger were made extinct. The city of Sodom and Gomorrah is an example.
Those who were spared of their lives lived with consequences unabated for a very long time. Life of misery, family disintegration, etc. The life of David is an example.
To read that God slays is enough to frighten anyone of how God can be angry when the sin of a person or nation gets to the point of no return. The death of King Saul is a big lesson, 1 Chro 10:13.
It should not surprise anyone to read Deut 32:39 *See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.*
If you know the evil that befalls mankind when God avenges, then you have unveiled the mystery behind God's anger, and you will avoid it.
Remember God is not quick to punish, Ps 86:15, 103:10, 145:8. He issues several warnings to us in order that we do not perish, 2 Pet 3:9.
Do not justify your sinfulness. You have no excuse. In fact, you should have been metted with His immediate anger.
Your being alive today is to give you an opportunity to quickly make amends.
If you do not, then you are justifying your sinfulness without remorse.
Are you aware that God avenges?
Well, He does!
Avoid His vengeance.
God is terrible. He is to be feared, Ps 47:2.
Do not tempt Him
Change now and go to God!
Do not tempt or provoke God to anger!
You may not live to wish you could appease God. It will be too late.
*Call to Word action.*
Romans 12:19 *Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
God can be unstoppable in His vengeance.
1 Sam 2:30 *Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.*
Lord, help me so that l do not provoke You to anger, in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
