The Lord responded to Solomon’s prayer of dedication with 2 Chronicles 7:14 and so much more. And in that very verse The Lord used some words of action for his people. It is some kinda If/then clause. If The Lord’s people would do four things … The Lord would do two! Ain’t God Good! We always know where we stand with Him, we never need wonder. My question for us today is how can we turn from our wicked ways, if we don’t know and thus agree with The Lord as to what they are? Our wicked ways that is.
In the last days our wicked ways are noted in Revelation 21:8 (ESV)
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
Solomon also described wicked ways as vanity.
There is a vanity that takes place on earth, that there are righteous people to whom it happens according to the deeds of the wicked, and there are wicked people to whom it happens according to the deeds of the righteous. I said that this also is vanity. Ecclesiastes 8:14 (ESV)
Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
My life matters not, so much as to be concerned as to what might happen to me on a day-to-day basis.
Because my live is covered by The Blood Red Proxy of Jesus Christ!
