Isaiah 59:15 So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.
Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice.
Psalm 2:2-4 The kings of the earth rise up,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Isaiah 59:15 has been on my mind for several months. I have prayed for those who are sincerely covenanted with the Lord that they would stay true to Him. As those who worship Satan are emboldened, believers are increasingly victimized. People are scandalized at the abuse of Christians, but eventually the abuse will become “old news”.
Another aspect of the abuse of authority and power is the unified desire to cast off God’s restrictions. They are not afraid of the almighty Creator-God and are plotting ways to over throw Him. But they seem to be unaware that He watches from the heavens and is laughing in derision at their utter foolishness.
Little children, do not be afraid. Our Holy One is more than enough to take care of our every need. After all, God is the creator of mankind and all cosmic beings, evil and good. He is exceedingly abundantly able to do all that we ask or even imagine and He is listening to each and every cry raised to Him.
Hebrews 13:5-6 Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” 6 So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently say,
“The Lord is my Helper [in time of need], I will not be afraid.
What will man do to me?”
The same ones who hated Jesus hate Jesus’ followers today. Rome and Jewish religious leaders hated Him then, and governments and religious leaders of today hate His followers.
Man can take one’s life but man cannot take one’s eternal rewa
