“For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him” (Isaiah 59:12-16).
Thought for today: I often wonder why today it seems that it is so hard to get people to be Christians. We see the state of the world in which we live, but many do not seem to be too concerned with what is taking place. Church and winning the lost don’t seem to be on people’s radar screen. The mighty greenback seems to have taken people’s attention away from God and the things of God. Isaiah said that judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. He said that everyone is in opposition to judgement, justice, truth, and equity. He said that truth fails. God’s word doesn’t seem to be able to accomplish its purpose because so many of God's people are in opposition to God’s word. Now is not the time to be in opposition to God’s word, now is the time to embrace it. Now is the time to cling to it like never before. Jesus said that when we see the things that we are now seeing coming upon the earth, we should look up, because our redemption draws nigh. Are you ready for His appearing?
Sing: I’m getting ready to leave this place, I’m getting ready for those gates of pearls; keeping my record right, watching both day and night; I’m getting ready to leave this place.
Thought For Today: Buy the truth and sell it not.
