“I Tell You Oh Man, Your Great Strength and Wisdom Will Not Guard You on That Day!”
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD,” Jeremiah 17:5.
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler,” Psalm 91:1-4.
“Many are like blind men in how they follow after the plans that they have made, not knowing what the outcome might be.
It is better to have a plan then not to have one. What are your plans my people?
Are your plans to remain having your heads buried in the sand, or to have your eyes opened to the world around you?
The wise man looks ahead seeing the danger that is in front of him. But the simple go on believing that all will be well.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon this earth, for in time they will rust and will wither away. But how does a wise man plan for the future?
How does one prepare for the dark days ahead?
Does he hoard-up money and bury it in the ground? Does he buy loads of guns and fortify himself against his enemies?
Surely, if a man had a thousand guns and built a fortress he could safely reside within.
But what of the many other dangers that a man might face? How would a man prevent an epidemic from coming upon his household?
Would he have on hold the most modern serums to ward off the diseases that might come?
How would a man prepare for an earthquake that would shatter everything around him? Would he hire a team of engineers to fortify his house?
When the great floods would come, would a man have a boat ready to sail away? Or when the winds come where would you flee to on that day?
I tell you oh man, your great strength and wisdom will not guard you on that day. You cannot have enough food to feed your hungry family.
For what will you do when the supplies run out? What will you do when the stores are all closed? When the system has lost its power and your money is gone, will you be ready?
Perhaps your emergency kit will save you on that day. I’m certain that you have the necessary ingredients at hand.
No I tell you, you cannot prepare in your own strength for the arm of flesh will always fail you. But those who put their faith and trust in Me will be kept safe on that day.
Did not Rahab save an entire city? Was not Elijah shown the miracle from above as the fire came down and destroyed the ministers of Baal?
No I tell you, many miracles will be wrought in my name. And after the dust has settled then a new breed of people will emerge. The earth will be cleansed and I will come back for my own.”
