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.
They lift up their voices, they sing for joy; over the majesty of the LORD they shout from the west.
Therefore in the east give glory to the LORD; in the coastlands of the sea, give glory to the name of the LORD, the God of Israel.
From the ends of the earth we hear songs of praise, of glory to the Righteous One. But I say, “I waste away, I waste away. Woe is me! For the traitors have betrayed, with betrayal the traitors have betrayed.”
Terror and the pit and the snare are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth!
He who flees at the sound of the terror shall fall into the pit, and he who climbs out of the pit shall be caught in the snare. For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble.
The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken.
The earth staggers like a drunken man; it sways like a hut; its transgression lies heavy upon it, and it falls, and will not rise again.
They will be gathered together as prisoners in a pit; they will be shut up in a prison, and after many days they will be punished.
Then the moon will be confounded and the sun ashamed, for the LORD of hosts reigns on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and his glory will be before his elders.
There is a parallel to this in Revelation-the final judgment, Christ coming to reign. However it is interpreted, the truth is God overcomes evil, God reigns, God passes judgment, God provides for His own. We take comfort and place our hope and trust in Him and Him alone. All others fail, He does not. Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
