The Lord Hears and Sees…

 

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

Revelation 20:4

 Then [I saw] the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received [his] mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

Job 24:12

The dying groan in the city, And the souls of the wounded cry out; Yet God does not charge [them] with wrong.

It is time to read and understand. Because God does not yet charge the oppressor for their crimes against humanity and those who bear the name of the Lord does not mean He is unaware. As Job learned, we do not question the Creator; we accept His will knowing He keeps the souls of His people; they rise to meet Him and are placed with Christ. Yes there is groaning, the souls cry out for mercy and vengeance and they will receive it. The eyes of the Lord are upon them and the oppressor. There is coming a judgment. Let us who are blessed and remain raise our voice to heaven for our brothers and sisters. Let us sit with them before the throne, weep with them in their pain. We are one in the spirit, we are one in the Lord.

 

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,

And we pray that all unity will one day be restored.

They’ll know we are Christians by our love,

Yeah, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

 

We will walk with each other we will walk hand in hand

We will walk with each other we will walk hand in hand

And together we will spread the news that God is in our land

They’ll know we are Christians by our love,

Yeah, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

 

 

We will work with each other, we will work side by side,

And we’ll guard each one’s dignity and save each one’s pride.

They’ll know we are Christians by our love,

Yeah, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

 

 

All praise to the Father,

From whom all things come,

And all praise to Christ Jesus

His only Son,

And all praise to the Spirit

Who makes us one.

John 13:35 

 “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Isaiah 59:1

1 Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.

Numbers 23:19

19 “God [is] not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

 

The blood of the people of God fills the land.  The light of God's Son exposes the evil.  The souls rise to meet Him.

Daniel 2:20, 22

20 Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. … 22 He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what [is] in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.

 

Attributes of God we can count on… Not only does He see the atrocities, the evil; He sees those who take action against it and those who sit silently by, turning their head not to see, blocking the news, investing only in their own life, piece of ground, piece of action. We cannot sit silently, ignoring, hoping it will go away or SOMEBODY will do SOMETHING so it won’t come here. Pray without ceasing…listen for the voice of God giving direction…and do not be silent!

Pride goes before a fall…

Ezekiel 28:1-10

 

The word of the LORD came to me again, saying, 2 “Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD:

​​“Because your heart is lifted up,

​​And you say, ‘I am a god,

​​I sit in the seat of gods,

​​In the midst of the seas,’

​​Yet you are a man, and not a god,

​​Though you set your heart as the heart of a god

3 ​​(Behold, you are wiser than Daniel!

​​There is no secret that can be hidden from you!

4 ​​With your wisdom and your understanding

​​You have gained riches for yourself,

​​And gathered gold and silver into your treasuries;

5 ​​By your great wisdom in trade you have increased your riches,

​​And your heart is lifted up because of your riches),”

6 ‘Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:

​​“Because you have set your heart as the heart of a god,

7 ​​Behold, therefore, I will bring strangers against you,

​​The most terrible of the nations;

​​And they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom,

​​And defile your splendor.

8 ​​They shall throw you down into the Pit,

​​And you shall die the death of the slain

​​In the midst of the seas.

9 ​​“Will you still say before him who slays you,

​‘​I am a god’?

​​But you shall be a man, and not a god,

​​In the hand of him who slays you.

10 ​​You shall die the death of the uncircumcised

​​By the hand of aliens;

​​For I have spoken,” says the Lord GOD.’ ”

When the Lord speaks it is so.  May we find ourselves at the foot of the cross, covered by the blood of Christ, raised with him to new life that when the Sovereign Lord looks upon us he sees his Son’s shed blood for our sin and speaks favorably to us.  We have the promise of a relationship with Him that was denied this king.  This king paid dearly for the pride within him.  Let us recognize that who we are and what we do is only because He is. Be careful to give the praise to the Lord God Almighty.
