The Message-The Lord Said, November 2021

There are many unbelievers who don’t think they need our Lord and Savior Jesus. They are prideful in their sins. They say: Yes we know what sinners we are. We have rebelled and denied the Lord. We turned our backs on God. That used to be me, before I fell in love with Jesus. We planned our deceitful lies, were prideful and arrogant, betrayed and deceived.

The Lord said: I was ready to respond, but no one asked for help. I was ready to be found, but no one was looking for me. I said here I am, here I am, to people that did not call my name. All day long I open my arms to a rebellious people, but they follow their evil paths, and their own crooked schemes. You deliberately sinned before my very eyes and chose to do what you know I despise. The people do not listen and Satan has struck them, but they paid no attention to God. They are crushed but they refuse to be corrected. They refuse to repent. Their rebellion is great and their sins are many.

Isaiah 1-3 I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; but was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call my name, I said, Here I am! Here I am! All day long I have held out my hands to an obstinate people who walk in the wrong path, who follow their own imaginations, to a people who continually provoke me to my face…

That was me, before I asked Jesus to forgive me of all my sins. I rebelled and kept doing what pleased me, never caring how displeased it made God. I paid no attention to God but kept running with the devil, for decades. Even though I had to suffer the consequences of my sins, I refused to repent. My rebellion was great and my sins many.

It is so dangerous to not pay attention to God. To continue to do the things you know for a fact, He does not want you doing. How disrespectful I was. How arrogant and full of pride. My sins were heaped up, until Jesus.

Finally, yes finally, I turned to Him. I asked for Salvation, forgiveness of sins and eternal life through Jesus Christ. Praise God Almighty He hadn’t given up on me. I will never go back. My sinful past is washed white as snow, separated as far as the east is from the west. All because of Jesus, my Lord and Savior. Thank You, thank You, thank You, for all You have done for me and mine.

In the Scripture below the Lord is speaking of Israel, but it may as well had been me, before I followed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Pay attention to how God treats His servant’s, verses those who choose to do what displeases Him.

Isaiah 65:11-15 But you who forsake the Lord, who forget my holy mountain, who set a table for Fortune and fill bowls of mixed wine for Destiny, I will destine you for the sword, and you will all kneel down to be slaughtered, because I called and you did not answer, I spoke and you did not listen; you did evil in my sight and chose that in which I did not delight.

Therefore this is what the Lord God says: My servants will eat, but you will go hungry; my servants will drink, but you will go thirsty; my servants will rejoice, but you will be put to shame. My servants will shout for joy with a glad heart, but you will cry out with a heavy heart and wail with a broken spirit. You will leave behind your name as a curse for my chosen ones, and the Lord God will slay you; but to His servants He will give another name.

There are blessings and curses. You get to choose which you will receive while on this earth and beyond. Remember, the Lord cannot bless sin. Choose Jesus and receive forgiveness of sins, eternal life and blessings while on the earth and beyond. You will not regret it, ever.

For the rest of my life, as long as the sun shines and the moon remains in the sky I will thank You for not giving up on me. Yes, forever, I will thank You Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit. Praise Your Holy Name my God.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
