For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans
Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.
In that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no more lean on him who struck them, but will lean on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.
For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will return. Destruction is decreed, overflowing with righteousness.
For the Lord GOD of hosts will make a full end, as decreed, in the midst of all the earth.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD of hosts: “O my people, who dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrians when they strike with the rod and lift up their staff against you as the Egyptians did.
For in a very little while my fury will come to an end, and my anger will be directed to their destruction.
And the LORD of hosts will wield against them a whip, as when he struck Midian at the rock of Oreb. And his staff will be over the sea, and he will lift it as he did in Egypt.
And in that day his burden will depart from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck; and the yoke will be broken because of the fat.”
God will always have a people. We can look at the storm around us or we can lean on Him. He destroys in anger those who would try to supplant him, but there are always those who truly love and serve Him alone. And the work and growth of the kingdom of God continues though the whole world be in unrest.
Evil is destroyed by the Holy One. Jesus said we will worship in spirit and in truth. We know our Father, our Creator. That knowledge is truth and separates us from evil. That knowledge allows the spirit to grow and mature. That truth brings power in the middle of despair. Something the unbeliever cannot experience…
“do not be afraid…”
