MORNINGTIME 4057 

Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have Mercy upon him; and (return) to our God, for He will Abundantly Pardon. For My (Holy) Thoughts are not your (worldly) thoughts, neither are your (evil) ways (as) My (Righteous) ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My Ways higher than your ways, and My Thoughts than your thoughts. So shall MY WORD be that goeth forth out of My Mouth: It SHALL NOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE, and it shall Prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with Joy, and be led forth with Peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into Singing, and all the trees of the field shall Clap Their Hands. Isaiah 55:6-9,11-12. Imagine you're in a jail cell sentenced to life in prison, and the Warden comes by, tells the guard to open your cell door wide, and the Warden tells you you're free to go, if you'll just step out of your cell. You look over the situation and can make one of two choices. Either Trust the Warden and maybe walk out as a free man, or decide the Warden is really setting you up for you to walk out of your cell and immediately get shot for "trying to escape". Your fear of getting shot keeps you in the cell, even with the door wide open. Here's the point. The Word Of God is like the Warden telling you you're free to go if you'll just step out of your cell. That's the GOoD News no matter what you decide. Stay or go, you've been given Good News and getting that Good News TO you, for you to Consider, is what that News is required to do. It has accomplished its purpose successfully, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DECIDE. The Glory of the Lord and the Word of the Lord have already been given to you for YOU to decide what YOUR future will look like in Heaven, or Hell. Choose Christ, and, Be Blessed.
