Soul Snack 75/13 ... Resurrecting Sodom
With one hand God is motioning man to come to Him, with the other hand He is holding back His wrath. Soon He will drop both hands. ~ Paul Washer
There is a foreboding depth to this quote that brushes a nerve and palpitates my spirit.
This world continues to live, choosing the days of Sodom with no regard for divine realities. It ignores judgements that are already spoken and suspended over the earth.
The season of grace is finite - the season of damnation isn't.
There is nothing that keeps wicked men at any one moment out of hell, but the mere pleasure of God. ~ Jonathon Edwards
(Well over two centuries of Christian devotion separate the above quotes.)
The canon of life is indulgence. Our moral compass has been smashed. Sodom is re-built.
We rest our heads and fill our wallets; we plan our own betterment and are even consumed for it. Yet who even knows what their next moment holds?
We live as if we own tomorrow but we don't even own today.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. (I Thess 5:6)
Today's Soul Snippet:
"Many have a SAVING faith, not a LIVING faith. Jesus wants us to live all our lives with His name on our lips." ~ P. Morley
