Peace is Troubled to Death
What are the American people doing as the world is marching to a one world government?
Prepared by Robert S. Howard
Living in America is one of the most grateful things that I think God has allowed in my life. Giving me the opportunity to come to the knowledge that God sent his Son Jesus Christ to take away the sin debt that I owed has to be the most astonishing thing that has ever happened in my life. Being a crippled man and one with a thick skull at times, I think God for still speaking to me through the Holy Spirit. Seeing the way that our country, the USA, has been taken down to very low places This takes me to a few questions that I have for the American people. Are you living a life peace? Are you living a life that is trouble free and you don't have a care in the world? Or, are you living a life that death will not even take away your burden's? I know that these are some off the wall questions but I am going to prove a point, just read on and you will see...
12 Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.
13 O Lord our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.
14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.
15 Thou hast increased the nation, O Lord, thou hast increased the nation: thou art glorified: thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth.
16 Lord, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.
17 Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O Lord.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
The Lord Will Ordain Peace
Isaiah 26:12-16 -...
God has ordained peace for those who are saved. Now, I don’t know what God will have to put you through so you can obtain that bliss but, the Lord shall surely provide everything that you will need. The different things that you bring into your life daily are some of the lord’s that Isaiah was talking about, the lord’s that clutter your life as for as God is concerned, He is a jealous God.
- Exodus 20:5 & 34:14
20:5 - Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
34:13 - But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:
- Deuteronomy 4:24, 5:9, & 6:15
4:24 - For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
5:9 - Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,
6:14 - Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;
- Joshua 24:19
24:19 - And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the Lord: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.
Pleasure Will Come at a Cost
You may be at the position in your life to where you are living Holy and Righteously but, looking at America, I believe that the citizens of this great country have lost, forgot, never read, overlooked, or just have never studied scripture. You may be where you don’t need to hear this but, I digress, we are living in the last days. You say Trump won, I have nothing to worry about anymore, look at this...
1 Thessalonians 5:1-7
1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
As far as being a Born Again Believer, I don't know when the Lord will return to take us up in the catching away. Who doesn't have any of these little lords in their lives to worry about? If you don't have anything to worry about you can stop reading. But, for the others who do have these lords in their lives read on...
Are You Dead or Alive in Christ Jesus?
You don’t have to be dead anymore because...
- Jesus Death on the Cross Became the Punishment for Our Sins, He is the sin-bearer for all who believe.
1 Peter 2:24 - Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
- Jesus was the substitute for my sins -
1 Peter 3:18 - For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
- Jesus was the sacrifice for my sins -
Isaiah 53:5 - But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities:
- Jesus was the sin offering for my sins -
2 Corinthians 5:21 - For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
- Jesus was and is the Redeemer for my sins -
Galatians 3:13 - Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Assurance of Eternal Life...
1 John 5:13-21
13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
16 If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this.
17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.
18 We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.
19 We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ This is the true God and eternal life.
21 Little children, guard yourselves from idols.
If You Don’t Have that Assurance, Salvation is for Your Life...
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
If you want to see a revival in your own life you should pay attention to Isaiah.
