This photograph provoked the direction of my moments of reading God’s word this morning.
Are We Ready To Meet Him?

By myself I have sworn; from my mouth has gone out in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance.’
For it is written, As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God [acknowledge Him to His honor and to His praise].
“I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.
That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, And every tongue [frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him.
Come, bless the Lord , all you servants of the Lord , who stand by night in the house of the Lord ! Lift up your hands to the holy place and bless the Lord ! May the Lord bless you from Zion, he who made heaven and earth!
All scripture point to Jesus, To Yeshua Hamashiah, that is the Messiah, the Christ.
He came that none should perish. Today is the day of salvation. Today there is still grace, mercy, forgiveness and love. Today is the day of turning away…
To to turn to Him. Today the Son is given as a Saviour and as a Lord of Salvation. Today Jesus is still the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of all who believ in Him.
Today the God of Heaven still cries out as he did through the mouth of the prophets of old, Repent, turn to me.
2 Chronicles 7:14
if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
Today there is yet time to make ammends and get our crooked paths straightened. Today…
But there will come a day where those who would not bow, must bow. They will bow down not of humble hearts but of fear. For the Great God will judge those who turned a dead ear. Those that refuse mercy and laugh at truth…
Sadly, that day will come. God will judge all people for the crimes commited in His name against people. God will judge for those who killed the unborn. God will rectify the sins commited against the innocent and the blind. God will not stand and ignore the frivolous treatment of those who have suffered.
There will come a day when every ruler, leader, government official, king and president, dictator and governor, mayor and clergy man will all have to give an account to God for how his people, the ‘Human Race’ have been treated.
There will be justice for the slaves taken. There will be a judgement against the traffickers, those who caused others to become victims of addiction and every kind of malice they have committed against other human beings, God’s own creation.
God will not allow there to be wickedness forever. One day he will judge every word and every dead from every father and mother, husband and wife, son and daughter.
We will all be measured for our actions and our lack of action. We will be judged for knowing how to do what is right and yet not doing it.
Lord, help us. We need you. Today there is still time. Time for us to bow the knees willingly. Today there is still time for a reconciliation. Today God wants to turn the hearts of the children toward their parents and the hearts of the parents toward their children.
Today the Lord wants to mend the broken hearted and cover a multitude of sin.
His desire is written well in John 3:16 -18
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
Lord help us believe. Help us cry out for our souls and turn away from sin.
Lord forgive our selfishness and forgive our behaviors. The thought process that we can lay back and let it be someone else’s problem. Lord God have mercy on us your people. Lord have mercy on the church in America.
Here in this, our country, we have been blessed beyond Measure.
But he who did not know and did things worthy of a beating shall be beaten with few [lashes]. For everyone to whom much is given, of him shall much be required; and of him to whom men entrust much, they will require and demand all the more. [Num. 15:29, 30; Deut. 25:2, 3.]
May we be found ready when He comes.
