In today’s world, there is a lack of reverence for the Lord. And it seems to be that no one is fearful of the outcome of judgment. We do as we wish, pretending God is not watching, as if He is not listening to our every conversation. The truth of the matter is, He is watching, He is attentive to us, and in the same way we expect Him to be when we pray toward Him.

The Bible told us, God will not be mocked, He knows our hearts, whether we are for Him or not. God Is not an absent God, but an ever present God, beholding the face of the earth, and all mankind. He will judge, He will deliver, and He will reign forever. God has reserved judgment for the wicked, and He will cut them off from the earth and the remembrance of them forever.

Numbers 16:31-35 “And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation. And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, lest the earth swallow us up also. And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.

  1. it seems harder in these last days for people to get into the kingdom of heaven….The Lord has warned us of the last days through his apostles and the word of God. Luke 16:27-31. True believers must keep the faith and stand on the promises of Jesus Christ.

    • I agree, the world is begining tobecome a very hostile palce to those whoare standing for Christ. The sad thing is, who will stand when times get hard, will professing christians pray and show th elove of God, or will we fall back into the world. This will happen for sure, and many will turn against their brothers and sisters. Mark 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
