Topic: Escape From His Coming Wrath
[DCLM Daily Manna 28 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
Text: Isaiah 26:12-21 (KJV)
Key Verse: “Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast” (Isaiah 26:20).
The entire world is presently passing through a period of pain, agony and anguish, and the Church of Christ is not left out. In fact, the Church suffers much both from the hands of Satan and his cohorts that are daily inflicting all sorts of wicked devices against her with the expectation of wanting her to surrender. This could be likened to a period of pain and anguish that a pregnant woman passes through before delivery. The closer that day, the greater her pains become. But there is joy and happiness after the delivery and the period of agony will be completely forgotten.
The Bible says there is no peace for the wicked. Judgment is coming upon the world and every wicked being will be thrown into the lake of fire. Before that time comes, God will unleash sorrows and pains upon the entire world. Nobody living at that period will be able to escape the wrath of the Almighty. However, God’s elects will be taken away so as not to partake in the suffering. But, provision will be made for the retreat and safety of the righteous during the storm.
The Lord is a Strong Tower in the time of trouble. The safety place is in Christ Jesus and His blood. He is a Stronghold for prisoners; the Hope, Peace and Safety in the midst of this present troublous world. Enter into His closet therefore, and be delivered from the tribulations which are slowly but assuredly gathering momentum.
Thought For The Day: Christ’s righteousness secures one from condemnation and wrath.
