7-30-18, * -- ‘Heard a lot of conversations over the weekend with friends and family about the state of our nation, the USA. Many believe we are in the midst of a revolution, even a civil war. The lack of civility among friends, family, neighbors and others over the current President continues to increase as the news media and the regressive left vehemently criticize everything the man does. ... Not to worry. Christians, take heart.
We are to overcome evil with good and not grow weary in doing it. Galatians 6:9; 2 Thessalonians 3:13; Hebrews 12:3; Revelation 2:3
Be encouraged and not offended; the Lord said:
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not thither, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”
”When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and you give him not warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”
No matter how long, no matter how difficult things become, do what the Lord tells you to do. As you do these things unto the Lord, you have made a transfer, so to speak, from yourself to others. It is now on them to act responsibly with the information. You have done your part.
“We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.” 2 Corinthians 4:7-19
God sent his only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins that we might have life everlasting with Him. It’s up to us to share the many facets of living out our salvation. Keep going. Keep doing. You never know when your action may be that last full measure needed to advance God’s plan. Never give up.
Isaiah 40:31; Joshua 1:9
