The LORD will wash away all of our filth, our sin and shame. And He will purge the blood, from the actions of our sin, from within our midst.
The spirit of judgment is making its way across this land and it will fall upon each one of us. None shall escape. This judgment comes because we have turned away from THE GOD who created us and the world we live in, and turned to gods of our own making and the god of this world Satan. Times are changing, and with it the hearts of mankind.
Consumation will be our end. Those who choose to stay in their sin will be consumed by that sin.
Sin, when fed and nurtured, becomes like a small spark in a very dry forest. We as a nation have turned from hearing the voice of God, namely our conscience. We intellectualize our reasons and compromise our beliefs, therefore nullifying any morality we have and causing a famine of the spirit.
Amos 8:11-12 "Behold, the days are coming," says the LORD GOD, "That I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD. They shall wander from sea to sea, and from north to east; they shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, but shall not find it."
Are thes words true of today? You better believe they are.
The fires, floods, droughts, diseases, tornadoes, hurricanes are the tell-tell signs of this coming famine.
All that we hold dear will become as the withering grass and fade away.
Take heart people of this earth, for God has made a way of escape. His name is Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the only hope for mankind. Not for the physical things of this world, but for you and I, the spiritually lost and dying. Jesus' death on the cross of Calvary does for us what the judgments of God will do upon this nation. HIS blood will wash away the filth of our sin thereby cleansing us and making us new. HIS blood, will purge away the blood upon our hands and clothing, thereby making us righteous in the eyes of God once again. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour a new dwelling place is created within us for the Holy Spirit of God to now fill. Now, we are covered within and without (inside and outside). With the covering of the blood of Jesus on the outside and the Holy Spirit on the inside, the Glory of God will now cover all that is His.
Back to my origninal question. How precious are we in the sight of the LORD?
VERY PRECIOUS. We are now His chosen. Priests and Kings and Queens.
The cloud of knowing is the very presence of God over us.
The cloud of knowing is the voice of God being heard daily in our lives.
The cloud of knowing is the Spirit of God leading us.
The cloud of knowing is the Son of God coming down to rapture us and take us home.
