2014 November 4 - Morning Manna

that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
(Psalms 96:9-13)

Today's Morsel: Are you ready for the Savior to come?  I don't believe it will be long.  Jesus said, "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:25-28).  Nations are being stretched at the seams.  They are falling apart faster and faster day by day.  People are confused and weary. Immorality has gone crazy.  The love of many has waxed cold.  People who forecast weather, are guessing; but of course that's what they've always done.   And Jesus said that when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.  And the psalmist said that the Lord would come to judge the earth.  So my question to you today is, "Are you ready?"  He will judge in righteousness and in truth.  Really what  the psalmist is saying is that Jesus is coming to judge us because He is the Truth and He is Righteousness.  We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, as Paul said. John wrote that Jesus said, "He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day"(John 12:48).  The same word that we hear every Sunday in our churches from the Bibles, and the same Bible that we read during our daily devotions, is going to be the same standard that Jesus uses to determine our final destination Himself.   There will be no surprises.  "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth"(John 1:14).  I know that many have changed the Bible to try to make it tailored to meet their wishes and desires.  But if it mentions Jesus in any of its words, the standard for judgment is printed.

Sing: Oh my brother are you ready for the call?  To crown your Savior King and Lord of all.  The kingdom of this world, shall soon before Him fall, we shall see the King when He comes.
We shall see the King, We shall see the King, We shall see the King when He comes; He's coming in power, we'll hail the blessed hour, we shall see the King when He comes.

Thought for Today: The truth shall make you free.
