Witness Him Now
I want to speak what the LORD is telling me. He has been speaking the same word to me since January of 2009, but I see this day fast approaching. It is the Day of the LORD, a day of the LORD's judgment on the whole earth. This morning as I look out across the land, I see the fast approaching armies. They are coming from all directions, and I see no way they will relent. They are coming close. What is happening right now is world wide. It is a power play. It is ruthless. It is cruel. So I want to tell you what the LORD says. I don't want you to be caught unaware.
Look! The LORD is about to destroy the earth and make it a vast wasteland. He devastates the surface of the earth and scatters the people. Priests and laypeople, servants and masters, maids and mistresses, buyers and sellers, lenders and borrowers, bankers and debtors - none will be spared. The earth will be completely emptied and looted. The LORD has spoken!
The earth mourns and dries up, and the land wastes away and withers. Even the greatest people on earth waste away. The earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God's instructions, violated His laws, and broken His everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse consumes the earth. Its people must pay the price for their sin. They are destroyed by fire, and only a few are left alive...The city is left in ruins, its gates battered down. Throughout the earth the story is the same - ONLY A REMNANT IS LEFT, like the stray olives left on the tree or the few grapes left on the vine after harvest.
But all who are left shout and sing for joy. Those in the west praise the LORD's majesty. In eastern lands, give glory to the LORD. In the lands beyond the sea, praise the name of the LORD, the God of Israel. We hear songs of praise from the ends of the earth, songs that give glory to the Righteous One! (Isaiah 24)
Can you hear it? Can you hear the sound of praise rising up from the earth. Stray olives and a few grapes praising the Righteous One. I can hear the sound. It is growing louder and louder. Melodies and harmonies joining together as one to bring praise to our King. In the middle of all of this chaos, a song is being sung, and it is beautiful! And it is rising until it fills the whole earth.
My prayer is that your heart will be singing this amazing song, too. May the God of all music enter your heart with power to bring you a joyful song of thanksgiving and praise. May this song fill your heart to overflowing so that you can join in this joyful assembly that will usher in our soon coming King. I am asking this in the mighty name of Jesus! AMEN
The scripture says, "May you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
