My Beloved Vineyard
Like a vineyard planted on the best of soils and vines, God planted you in the richness of His grace in Christ. In due time, the Gardener looks for His fruit – the character and conduct of His people. God cannot be blamed for a fruitless life, for fruit reveals the root.
The LORD of Hosts is Exalted in Justice
God not only denounces our sins (declaring it evil), He laments over them (grieving at how it hurts us). These are not so much the sins done against us, but the sins indwelling within us. Over social-reform, God’s justice exalts in self-reform.
The Anger of the LORD was Kindled
The anger of the LORD is kindled on those who deliberately and continuously bait, challenge, and reject God’s Word. His judgment will be swift, thorough, and unavoidable. Let us cut the cord that draws over denies sin. Fear departing God’s side!
Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD
Before a calling from God, there is a conviction within man. See the LORD sitting on His throne, controlling the uncontrollable. Hear the angels of fire endlessly declare His holiness. Feel the burning coal that transforms fleshly power into holy passion.
… do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7)
