THE Day…

Just finished reading and re-reading Isaiah 42 and thinking about it, yet again. It is one of my favourite passages about Jesus, and has informed my ministry and hopefully my living over the years:

“He will bring justice to all who have been wronged..,” including all those unborn little ones, forbidden to see the light of day on earth, but learning to praise God in heaven at this moment with perfect praise, the sound of which will silence every godless celebration for all eternity to come (Psalm 8). For them and for every one – past, present and future – powerless in the face of being wronged, “He will come forth as a mighty hero; he will come out like a warrior full of fury. He will shout his battle cry and crush all his enemies.”

Have you sentimentalised the love and grace of God for the world, become lopsided in your outlook on The Day of The Lord? It willbe a day when people will call on the rocks and mountains to cover them and hide them from the wrath of The Lamb, but the rocks and mountains will not respond for they will have been removed and will provide no hiding place. For many, the words through the prophet Amos will prove accurate: “It will be as though a man fled from a lion only to meet a bear, as though he entered his house and rested his hand on the wall only to have a snake bite him.

Praise God for Jesus, the hope for the destroyed and the damaged, and the hope too for the most destructive and damaging of lives. There is hope for all, even as the Lord buckles on His armour once more…

God bless
