Thanks for your kind but sobering affirmation of God's warning through Maurice Sklar.
Those Scriptures are certainly pregnant ones for our era.
For years now, it has grieved me to the bone marrow that so many folks I know . . . and more who hear or read my words . . . will stubbornly and
rebelliously maintain their death-grip on their tickets to hell--and there's absolutely nothing I can do about it.
"Not by might, nor by power but by His Spirit, says The Lord."
And when folks persistently stubbornly refuse to listen to Holy Spirit's still small voice . . . there's no other Voice to reach them.
That's frightful beyond words.
That you received those verses the last 24 hours almost sent chills up & down my spine. WOW.
The folks in Noah's time . . . carrying on, mocking abusively, scoffing, deriding, wise-in-their-own-eyes, until The Lord closed the door to the Ark
and the rains started.
It had NEVER rained before. Noah, in their eyes, HAD to be a lunatic.
Except that . . . he wasn't.
It's long been fascinating and sobering how incredibly delicate a microscopic fine line The Lord has constructed the evidence.
Plenty of solid evidence for those of good heart to exercise their personal gift of faith toward HIM.
But not so much soooo emphatically [USUALLY--NOT ALWAYS--HE does offer dramatic exceptions on occasion] . . . but not so much soooooooo emphatically
that folks have NO CHOICE BUT TO BELIEVE IN HIM.
He's not interested in "rice 'Christians' ."
He knows that such shallow contingency believers-for-the-goodies-only have shallow roots. And He's not interested in any more rebellion in Heaven's
Evidently you and I . . . and a host of others . . . are born for such a time as this . . . regardless of how we might shudder at what's looming on
the near horizon.
THANKFULLY HE IS well able and willing to be mighty in behalf of those who genuinely Love and seek Him.
