The Day of Vengeance
"And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know
that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to
the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and
let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days
of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled."
Today’s Morsel: When Jesus came out of the wilderness in Luke Chapter 4, having been tempted by the devil for 40 days, scripture says, “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a frame of him through all the region roundabout. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:14-19). For some reason, Jesus omits the latter portion of Isaiah chapter 61 verse 2, which states, “the day of vengeance of our God.” Jesus did not come at that time to vindicate, retribute, or punish for sin, so this may be the reason for the omission. He came to seek and to save that which was lost. But now in Luke 21, he tells them what to look for about this day of vengeance. He said, “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:20-22) I believe that time is drawing nigh. Are you ready?
Sing: Oh my brother are you ready for the call? To crown your Savior king and Lord of all. The kingdoms of this world shall soon before Him fall; we shall see the King when He comes.
