Theme: WHERE COULD SAFETY BE FOUND?

Text: “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time:  and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” – Daniel 12:1.

Comment: The Prophet Daniel was used by God to foretell the impending doom that will befall Satan the devil and all wicked persons when God Almighty will use Jesus Christ to “destroy them that destroy the earth”. – Matthew 24:21; Revelation 11:17,18.

Since no can withstand the power of God because He is Almighty. All those who love to be saved should, therefore, flee Satan’s stranglehold and place themselves under Jehovah’s protection in His kingdom organizations now set up so as to be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger. The Lord says:  “Fury is not in me: who would set the briers and thorns against me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together. Or let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me.” – Isaiah 27:4, 5. See also Romans 11:26,27.

“Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired” God declared through Zephaniah the prophet, “Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness:  it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.” – Zephaniah 2:1-3.
