MORNINGTIME 3578by Benjamin Munsell on September 15, 2020
For all this I considered IN MY HEART even to declare all this, that the Righteous, and the Wise, and their Works, ARE IN THE HAND OF GOD: no man knoweth either love or hatred by all that is before them. ALL THINGS COME ALIKE to all: there is one event to the Righteous, and to the wicked; to the Good and to the Clean, and to the unclean; to him that Sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: AS IS THE GOOD, SO IS THE SINNER; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath. This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that THERE IS ONE EVENT UNTO ALL: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead. Ecclesiastes 9:1-3. All this boils down to, pick an "event" and it will happen to both the Saved, and the unsaved, to the rich, and to the poor, to the fearful, and to the Fearless. And it's not about what happens TO you, but what are you going to DO about it. Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy, and he tries to do this with everybody. As a Believer, do you KNOW, do you BELIEVE, that Satan can't touch you until it goes Through The Throne Room First? COVID 19 is just "a shot across the bow" of this world. Where do you stand, in Christ or out, when a REAL pandemic covers the globe, when hundreds of thousands drop dead in their tracks as some man-made cloud covers the landscape? Maybe you'll die, maybe you'll live, what does Christ have to say about it? Is your Faith in Him to Keep you, AS HE WILLS? As the 3 Jewish young men were IN the 7 times hotter fiery furnace and COULD NOT DIE, because Christ was with them, will Christ be with you when you are in your "fiery furnace"? Maybe you Live, maybe you don't, will you Trust Christ that HIS WILL BE DONE? That either way, you'll Praise, Honour and Worship Him ALL the days of your Life? We're all going Home someday, so Live in Christ until He says otherwise, and Die IN CHRIST when He calls you Home, to, Be Blessed.
