GOD IS JEALOUS, AND THE LORD REVENGETH; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies. The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. THE LORD IS GOOD, A STRONG HOLD IN THE DAY OF TROUBLE; and he knoweth them that trust in Him. Nahum 1:2-3,7. We have two opposites here. The Lord is angry at the wicked, and He is a Stronghold to the just. You are in one camp or the other, the choice is yours. Here's how it works. This earth is half way between Heaven and Hell. You have opportunity to enjoy the gifts, goodness, and Glory of the Lord, or you can live a "Godless" existence and go it alone. Everything that comes into your life is designed to encourage you to seek out the Lord. Everyone starts off living and loving the ways of the world. The Lord offers a better Way and anyone who will listen, can find it. ALL are offered the better Way, sadly, most will reject it. God's offer is serious and strong enough to stand on Judgment Day. If you reject His offer, it to is serious and strong enough to stand on Judgment Day. Don't take His offer lightly and blow it off as "Ho-Hum". Your Eternity will be determined by what you do with His Offer. For those who choose to listen to His Offer, they will find that Life is much more tolerable because His Hand will be in it, and that will be a Great Comfort. It doesn't make life "Easy", but it does make life very do-able. Everyone has pain and suffering in their life, the question is, does your life end in eternal destruction, or everlasting Glory? This life ends in death, and only Christ can transform a dead life in a Glorious Life Eternal. It's your choice and you have your whole life to decide. The problem is, no one knows if they have a tomorrow, or does it all stop today? Choose Christ, and, Be Blessed.
