Sin: God Has Not Changed
Jer.7: 7-8 says, “The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains. 8 Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.”
SIN is a reproach and God is always angry with the sinner everyday. If you think that God is happy with you, then you need to acquaint yourself with the history of what He did in the days of Lot, Noah, Pharaoh and his armies, the five heathen nations, and how 3,000 men that refused to be on the Lord’s side fell in one day.
If you are in sin and think God is not worried about you, then you need to know that even His own people that transgressed against Him in Baalpeor were slain. We should know that God drove Adam and Eve away from the Garden of Eden because of sin. Yet, He has not changed. The iniquities of present generation have superseded that of generations before it. And if there is no repentance, God will pour His wrath on humanity again.
Zeph. 1:14 says, “The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.” Beloved, this warning of God is enough to make sinners tremble. The great day of the Lord is coming. It is the day He will manifest Himself by taking vengeance on sinners. That day will be a day of trouble and distress to sinners.
They shall justly be left to walk as blind men, in the dark, without a guide and falling at length into the consuming wrath of the Lord because they refused to repent. On that day of the Lord’s wrath, there shall be no escaping, neither will their silver nor their gold, which they have hoarded, be able to deliver them.
Whether the world believes me or not, the truth is that God is angry with the people of this generation and is determined to destroy it, if we do not repent from our sin. Our feeling about the caution is immaterial and will not change God’s position. The only thing that will pacify the righteous God is absolute repentance. It is time to do something to ensure that you and your family are saved.
There is no more time; you have to make up your mind, now, for the day of trouble is at hand. The approaching ruins of the people of this world have been foretold, so that they might be awakened by repentance and thus prevent the wrath to come. And where they failed to repent, they will repent in hell fire and then, it will be too late for God’s grace to abide. My prayer is that you will not be among the obstinate ones, who take God’s word for granted.
