Do Not Grow Weary
5 August, 2018
Is there any greater nobility for man to witness than a willing submission to an unjust and cruel death?
Is there any greater wickedness to be conducted by the perpetrators?
Surely the settled, understanding heart cries out with he who is noble, and laments those cowards who wickedly acquiesce?
The season is heavy in pregnancy to interpret the times spiritually.
Understand the days of wickedness multiply, these are those days when mankind yet again approaches a pre-history Genesis:
The Lord saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that all inclinations of his heart were only evil all the time. (Genesis 6:5)
The call for a holy Christian perseverance rings louder, to not weaken and to cast the heart's eyes to ever true nobility.
Each new day earth's birth pains arise further. These are reported through the air waves:
- wars and rumors of wars, nation rises against nation, kingdoms against kingdoms
- multiplied by famines and earthquakes and many deceivers claiming 'I am the Christ'. (See Matthew 24)
- people are lovers of themselves, pleasure, money and abusive - not lovers of God. They are boastful and proud, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, without self-control and disobedient to parents. (See 2 Timothy 3:1-5)
- the truth is suppressed, it is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil has become a prey. (See Isaiah 59:15 & Romans 1:18)
Set your gaze upon the noble Christ that you may endure the hardships, bitterness, resentments, malicious judgements and so much more that is sure to come...
Fix your eyes upon Calvary for it is those who persevere to the end who are saved...
Lift your eyes to that unmovable, unshakeable Crown of Glory...
look to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured from sinners such hostility against Himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. (Hebrews 12:2-3)
The time is now for each who names Christ as Lord to remain firm, steadfast and strong. Each will soon live in a permanent unsurpassable light where the Lord has made everything brand new.
The task ahead of you is never as great as the Power behind you. ~ anon
