Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for He hath torn, and He will heal us; He hath smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days will He revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight. Then shall we know if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
This message is a call for repentance to God's people as we here in America is in the midst of a changing season (life experiences) where evil has reared its ugly head, and it appears as though no one or thing can stop these evil forces. Wrong, deceit and lies have become the norm; let me assure you that there is one mightier than Satan and his evil minions; His name is Jesus Christ, the Lord Almighty. The Lord is waiting for all believers to return to Him and make Him first in our lives and He will heal us, and we will witness mighty destruction of the evilness that is raging in this country and around the world. As stated in our lesson text that He will bind us up, which means He will protect us from all of the wickedness that is rampant worldwide. He will put a new found love of Him and His glory as He will put running in our feet that we will be more than willing to tell others about the goodness of the Lord.
Believers, we will be able to follow God when we get to know Him and will that if we stand firm on His truth and doctrine our light of righteous living will shine bright in this sin-darkened world.
God promises us that if we truly repent and turn back to Him because He already prepared the way for us, which is as sure as the coming of each morning. God also promises that the coming of the Holy Spirit is as assured as the rain that is sure to fall on the earth.
Let me close with these encouraging words repent and turn back to the Lord and then we will see His blessings and protection rain down from heaven as a mighty rain flooding the earth. We will be then able to live in peace knowing that this evil has no power over us and no effect on us. We are the children of God; family members of His holy nation who are peculiar to the world (1 Peter 2:9 KJV). Our confidence is in the Lord as He protects us under His mighty wings because as Christians we are dwelling in the secret place of the Almighty God (Psalm 91:1-4 KJV).
Therefore, regardless of the changing of the seasons, believers we must remain steadfast in God who changes not.
