I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS!!!
2 Peter 3:5-7,10-13 NLT
They deliberately forget that God made the heavens by the word of his command, and he brought the earth up from the water and surrounded it with water. Then he used the water to destroy the world with a mighty flood. And God has also commanded that the heavens and the earth will be consumed by fire on the day of judgement, when ungodly people will perish. But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and everything in them will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be burned up. Since everything around us is going to melt away, what holy, godly lives you should be living! You should look forward to that day and hurry it along—the day when God will set the heavens on fire and the elements will melt away in the flames. But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness!
I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS TO HAPPEN!! This sends chills of anticipation up my spine. There is nothing in all this world that I look forward to, that I earnestly desire and long for, more than this: The day when God brings his righteous judgement upon this earth, this entire universe infested with sin and wickedness and destroys it all, burns it down, consumes it all in blazing fire, melting away all the wicked, all the evil, all the corrupt, utterly wiping it all away, and with the word of his mouth, once again, speaks into being the brand new heavens and earth, where only the righteous can live! A universe filled with the righteousness of God forever and ever, and ever!!
Recently a good friend wrote to me and asked if I think we are in the end times, if I see a one world government coming? I responded with the passage above. Why? Because this is what I choose to look forward to!! “You should look forward to that day and hurry it along—the day when God will set the heavens on fire and the elements will melt away in the flames.”
This is what I cannot wait for, and in my heart, every day, like a little child eagerly wishing the days to pass quickly by so Christmas day will arrive, I hurry it along, in my heart, in my prayers, and in my hopes and desires.
Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon, or seen pictures of it? Do you know what the Grand Canyon really is?! It is a massive, breathtaking monument to the judgement of God, carved out in stone and rock, by the mighty, raging waters of the flood that God promised Noah he would bring upon the earth and all the wicked!! It is the Grand Canyon of promise that God will do this all again, but this time with fire, this time utterly destroying everything, melting it away, then creating something brand new, and righteously indestructible and pure for all time!
In a world right now consumed by turmoil, wickedness, corrupt governments and officials, with many alarmingly asking, “What’s coming next?” Let me tell you: THIS IS WHAT IS COMING NEXT!! The Day of the Lord is coming, and He will burn it all down to nothing!! What a glorious day that will be!
“This world has nothing for me, This world has nothing for me, Burn it down, burn it down, O God burn it down!” One of my all time favorite worship songs!
Hey Antifa, BLM, soon your wish will come true, God will burn it all down, at the same time He’s burning all of you!
So let me urge you today, fill your thoughts with this coming reality, today and every day. Let this be the great anticipatory hope that gets you through these days of trouble, sorrow, injustice, evil and pain. Sooner or later God will cut them down!! We will be free at last! No more masks! No more wicked, immoral laws. No more injustice! No more tyrants and hypocrites! No more sharing the earth with the wicked, liars and the profane!
HERE COMES THE JUDGE!
“God’s Gonna Cut Them Down”, One of my all time favorite Biblical songs. You gotta hear this one!!
