Theme: God Does Not Forsake His People
Text: “And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brazen altar”. – Ezekiel 9:2.
Comment: The text above is from the record of the prophet Ezekiel, about a vision that has to do with the commission given to the ministers of God, to impart true knowledge to people and the destruction work that follows the completion of their mission.
To lovers of truth and righteousness who express anger and disgust at the wickedness of this age, God caused the truth to be expounded to them so that they will acquire an intelligent understanding of His purpose, which they put into practice, by so doing, exhibiting the “mark” or knowledge of the truth in them.
At the expiration of the propagation of the gospel message, (Matthew 24:14) slaying of unrepentant sinners shall commence, beginning at the place of knowledge, God’s sanctuary (Jeremiah 7:1-14) inhabited by fully devoted servants of God, entrusted with the task of teaching God’s people His ordinances. (1 Peter 4:17) We all should make good use of the spiritual education we are now getting through the truth so as to have life. In Isaiah 28:21, 22, the Bible says: “For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.” – Isaiah 28:21, 22.
We pray the God of the harvest to open the eyes of our understanding to behold wondrous things out of His law and do them by His grace.
