MORNINGTIME 3950by Benjamin Munsell on February 18, 2022
(The bad news). And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood. Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. Therefore was the Wrath of the Lord kindled against His people, insomuch that He abhorred His Own Inheritance. And He gave them into the hand of the (worldly) heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. Many times did He deliver them; but they provoked Him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity. Psalm 106:36-43. When the Hand of the Lord brings Judgment against a country, or the whole world as even today, there is nothing man can do to wriggle out from under that "God brought on Judgment" unless and until man cried out in Repentance seeking Forgiveness. Whether a man, a country, or the whole world, JUDGMENT STAYS until man cries out to the Lord. "Cheap man-made hope" won't work in the long haul, and at best will only make changes for a short time. I'll illustrate. People in Canada are trying to pressure the government to bring change to make their lives better. This won't work "in the long haul" because the Lord is using the government IN JUDGMENT AGAINST HARD HEARTED AND REBELLIOUS MAN. Understand, the whole world is fighting against the Lord and His Judgment, not just Canada. Godly Judgment has started worldwide and will end with the world going up in smoke. But YOU, reader, can find Forgiveness for YOUR sins and rebellion by asking the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive YOU and give YOU a new Heart. Judgment WILL continue worldwide, and ALL people will suffer the results of sin, but even in the midst of YOUR physical suffering, YOU can have Peace, and, Be Blessed.
