“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
The God of the bible is out of fashion in His own world. He is ridiculed, jokes are popular about him and His Son. He has been reduced to slogans and billboards and bumper stickers. His name has become a good luck charm, an insurance policy and whatever people need Him to be at any given time.
Being a Christian now is just claiming you are one. It doesn’t matter if you are living with someone without being married, a homosexual, drunkard or drug addict. You can attend a “church” and be received as you are and you won’t ever have your sin mentioned because god is love after all, and we aren’t to “judge”. Preachers use God’s name to lie to people, to manipulate them, entertain them and say, “Give god a big handclap”, “God show up and show out”.
Rebellion is in style from Main Street to the back streets and alleys and in the pulpits across our country, women and homosexuals are popular as preachers.
But I do know what God said, “Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10).
There will come a time when everyone on who has been and is now on this earth will know God as He is!
He will be exalted on this earth; every one will know His power, see His glory and experience His justice.
Every rebel, every lying preacher, every one who used Him as an insurance policy or fire escape from hell and took His Holy Name in vain will have their mouths stopped as they experience His power and justice when He confines them to an everlasting hell.
I also know that when He is exalted in the earth, and brings judgment it will not change anyones nature or view of God. If God doesn’t change your nature here where you know Him as He is and delight in Him as He is, death will not change a soul’s nature.
We who know that He is God and beside Him there is none else are still and find rest and peace in Him.
