Glory to The Righteous One
We are to share in the pervasive, infinite sorrow and grief of our heavenly Father’s heart over the wickedness of humankind and the rebellion displayed as they flaunt their sin proclaiming their hatred for Him.
“The city [the world] of chaos is broken down; Every house is shut up so that none may enter. There is an outcry in the streets…All joy turns to gloom. The gaiety of the earth is banished. Desolation is left in the city and the gate is battered to ruins [no more protection against our enemy is left]. For thus it will be in the midst of the earth among the peoples, As the shaking of an olive tree, As the gleanings when the grape harvest is over. They raise their voices, they shout for joy; They cry out from the west concerning the majesty of YAHveh. Therefore glorify YAHveh in the east, The name of YAHveh, the Elohim (God) of Israel, in the coastlands of the sea. From the ends of the earth we hear songs, “Glory [glory, glory] to the Righteous One….” [HalleluYAH! In the midst of all that is being described of YAHveh’s impending, dissolving, destroying, burning up, leaving few inhabitants, there is a very important interlude. They raise their voices, they shout for joy, they proclaim the majesty of YAHveh, and they sing glory to the Righteous One! Who are they in the midst of all this? They are the righteous, redeemed elect who are left on the earth, who are rejoicing that in sovereignty YAHveh is doing what He had to do to the earth as in the days of Noah.] “Terror and pit and snare confront you, O inhabitant of the earth. Then it will be that he who flees the report of disaster will fall into the pit, And he who climbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare; For the windows above are opened, and the foundations of the earth shake” (Isaiah 24:10-18).
YAHveh says in Isaiah 13:13, Haggai 2:6, and Hebrews 12:26, “In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth.” Everything in the earth that can be shaken will be shaken. Only what is of YAHshua (Jesus) will remain. YAHveh’s desolation of the earth is to prepare a home for His redeemed—the blood-covered, consecrated, circumcised in heart, set-apart-as-holy-to-YAHveh people, His beloved bride. HalleluYAH!
Prayer: Thank You, YAHveh (LORD), You are preparing me to stand, not only to endure to the end, but to endure so I can help others to make it, snatching them from the fires that are coming to burn up this earth. I pray to be victorious in courage and bravery and to allow You to work in and through me. Thank You, YAHveh, that I am in the process of working out my salvation with fear and trembling, in order to be completely dead to my flesh, that YAHshua (Jesus) is completely living, emanating, and proclaiming His love, majesty and salvation in and through me. HalleluYAH!
