MORNINGTIME 4015by Benjamin Munsell on May 20, 2022
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD, I will Joy in the God of my Salvation. THE LORD GOD IS MY STRENGTH, and He will make my feet like hinds' feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments. Habakkuk 3:17-19. After all that Habakkuk has seen and been through, he can now absolutely sing of the Great Mercy and Grace of the Lord. Here's the background. Habakkuk has seen the nation of Israel turn their backs against God. It got so bad; God had to judge them for their sins. God used a nation way viler and more viscous than Israel ever thought of being to take absolutely everything away from Israel until Israel was left with nothing. Israel finally understands that in their state of "nothingness" they can still turn back to God and rejoice that even in nothing, in Him they have everything. As the nation of Israel came to understand all this, (now mission accomplished), that nation that was used to bring down Israel was itself brought down to lower than low. In today's terms, when the church of the Living God turns its back on God, God will use an even more Godless people to bring the Church, the people of God, back to God in the Fullness of Pure Fellowship with their God. God Loves the church, the Body of Christ, worldwide. Judgment has now started to bring us out of Worldliness with itself, flesh and old man nature, AND INTO THE PURE HOLINESS OF CHRISTLIKENESS, even here on this earth. When this is accomplished and the Bride is without spot, blemish or wrinkle, this old world, used to judge the Church, will itself be severely and without Mercy, Judged. And yes, ALL of Christ's sheep will be brought into the fold with not even one lost. Repent, Seek Christ, Grow in Christ, and, Be Blessed.
