He Is Not Through, Yet (By David L. Brown)

I’ve been “sitting on this all day.” Can’t hold it back any longer.

God is not done with America yet. The steering of Joaquin away from our shores was a sign of His ability to preserve us, and keep us from harm, if we will continue to repent and pray. It has been because of devout Christians that have fasted and prayed for this nation that God is withholding His hand of judgement. It’s not to be taken lightly, God’s patience is meant to bring about repentance, and revival ONE LAST TIME to this nation. WE WILL NOT HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE.

“HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS!”

Brothers and sisters, you are holy partners in a heavenly calling. So look carefully at Yeshua, the apostle and chief priest about whom we make our declaration of faith. Yeshua is faithful to God, who appointed him, in the same way that Moses was faithful when he served in God’s house. Yeshua deserves more praise than Moses in the same way that the builder of a house is praised more than the house. After all, every house has a builder, but the builder of everything is God.

Moses was a faithful servant in God’s household. He told the people what God would say in the future.  But Christ is a faithful son in charge of God’s household. We are his household if we continue to have courage and to be proud of the confidence we have.

As the Holy Spirit says,

“If you hear God speak today, don’t be stubborn.
     Don’t be stubborn like those who rebelled
        and tested me in the desert.
            That is where your ancestors tested me,
although they had seen what I had done for 40 years.
    That is why I was angry with those people. So I said,
    ‘Their hearts continue to stray,
        and they have not learned my ways.’
So I angrily took a solemn oath
    that they would never enter my place of rest.”

Be careful, brothers and sisters, that none of you ever develop a wicked, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. Encourage each other every day while you have the opportunity. If you do this, none of you will be deceived by sin and become stubborn. After all, we will remain Christ’s partners only if we continue to hold on to our original confidence until the end.

Scripture says,

“If you hear God speak today, don’t be stubborn.
    Don’t be stubborn like those who rebelled.”

Who heard God and rebelled? All those whom Moses led out of Egypt rebelled. With whom was God angry for 40 years? He was angry with those who sinned and died in the desert. Who did God swear would never enter his place of rest? He was talking about those who didn’t obey him. So we see that they couldn’t enter his place of rest because they didn’t believe (Hebrews 3:1-19)

“GOD DOES CHANGE HIS MIND DEPENDING ON OUR RESPONSE, AND ACCORDING TO HIS MERCY.”

In those days Hezekiah became sick and was about to die. The prophet Isaiah, son of Amoz, came to him and said, “This is what Yahweh says: Give final instructions to your household, because you’re about to die. You won’t get well.”

Hezekiah turned to the wall and prayed to Yahweh, “Please, Yahweh, remember how I’ve lived faithfully and sincerely in your presence. I’ve done what you consider right.” And he cried bitterly.

Isaiah hadn’t gone as far as the middle courtyard when Yahweh spoke his word to him: “Go back and say to Hezekiah, leader of my people, ‘This is what Yahweh Elohim of your ancestor David says: I’ve heard your prayer. I’ve seen your tears. Now I’m going to heal you. The day after tomorrow you will go to Yahweh’s temple. I’ll give you 15 more years to live. I’ll rescue you and defend this city from the control of the king of Assyria for my sake and for the sake of my servant David’” (II Kings 20:1-6)
