“Some days I want to write till I escape the cruelty of this world.”- Blessing Okoro

Originally written on Sunday, November 20, 2016

Being uneasy all day… I barely slept well on Saturday night and I’m still heavy in my spirit. 

Why? The cruelty of this generation…my God! 

As if the days of the slavery were not enough… Need I mention the modern day #Aluu4 lynching… And just recently, the lynching of a 7-year old boy. 

What exactly is witchcraft to some people? What? Not to talk about the lawlessness of the mob taking the so-called law into their hands.


I have two consolations at this writing moment, for usually I will not write about an escape… But I’m indeed too weary thinking about it.

Let’s take the first one; God will surely judge the wicked.

There’s some erroneous saying that was viral at some point, ‘only God can judge me (them)‘. It was never alright to me and then I was scrolling through Twitter and it was made plain. It can never be an inspirational statement for you to be comfortable with being judged by the Living God Himself! 

For our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:29

Who will God judge? Those that go against His commandments and have the effrontery to stay unrepentant.

“Thou shall not kill…thou shall not kill.”

Oh, so to judge a so-called sin, you use another sin to cover it up? Well, if you will not believe God’s Word…then you must be ready to be judged.

Let us even take a timeless quote…


My second consolation… There remaineth an escape for the people of God from the cruelty of this world.

“…but for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22b)

I know there shall be wars and rumours of war… And the gross wickedness of man is never an exception. But glory to God… These days shall be shortened.

And it brings me to the realisation… I don’t really know what we are doing here any longer. Except the blessedness of the Gospel being preached… There is no other thing happening! 

It must be time to really come and be going. Yes! Yes! 


That brings the conclusion of a better escape… An escape that is second to none, no level of writing in all the age can capture it. The escape of SALVATION. And sooner than ever, the escape of the rapture! 

You need to prepare and pick an escape along your spiritual race… You’re either getting caught up with the Lord in the skies during His coming or facing the tribulation. 

You need to pick an escape. I pray we pick the rapture. Amen!

All of the cruelty we see and worry about, is but nothing when compared to the coming doom over the children of disobedience and those that remain during the destruction of this present world.
“Escape for your dare life.” (Emphasis drawn from listening to my Dad)


Did I find an escape via this write-up? Yes I did! Matter of fact, the Escape was given to me by an act done over 2,000 years ago by Him who has promised a rest on every side.

“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.”- Hebrews 4:9

His Name is JESUS CHRIST. He has freely given salvation by dying on the Cross and rising up again on the third day. He is that Escape route yesterday, today and forevermore! 

Run into Jesus Christ today!

    Console yourself as the first century Christians did…with the knowledge that God is a righteous God who will condemn the wicked and none of them will get away! Think of the world Noah lived in. In Genesis 6, we are told that all men were so wicked that God was sorry He had made man on earth!

    The flood was the result and judgement on the world at that time. Now, we wait for the Judgment Day. And when this world becomes so wearisome, pray to God for strength to hold on! He gives His own the strength to endure…

      Amen! Amen!

      God bless you for referring to the days of Noah.

      It’s a replica of these our days according to the Scriptures.

      God will help us to endure till the end and overcome.

      Thank you Steve.

        It is God’s strength we draw upon and which sustains us. Can you imagine a world where God is completely absent? There would be no goodness of any kind at all!

        Amen to that!!!!!!! You know, that is what hell is, a place without the presence of God. Therefore there will be no goodness nor light of any kind. I shudder at such a place and want to avoid it completely…

        Amen. We shall see Jesus Christ, be like Him and reign with Him.

        Hell was made for the devil and his angels… not even for human beings (the devil is so evil).

        But, glory to God…He has overcome for us and has gone to prepare a place for us, that where He is, there we will be also. Amen.

        Rest in this Steve. Rest.

        I believe that those who ignore God in this life are angels of the evil one and will be “thrown into the fire” along with Satan. It will be so hurtful to God to do that, but He will stand for no evil at all in heaven. That’s why we need to keep ourselves from being polluted by the sin in this world, (James 1:27)…

        Yes, for those who walk with the Lord, we have a place prepared in heaven for us, and will rest with God forever. This is the hope which brings that peace that passes all understanding. Rest in His promises to be sure! Amen!!

    Wow! This is highly inspirational and spirit lifting!
    Sometimes I wonder how the days of Noah was and I could more clearly about that dispensation when compare with the present state of humanity.
    It broke my heart when I read about and saw the lynching and archaic jungle justice mete out to a seven years old boy for whatever reasons.
    What a wicked world!
    As children we have His assurance of consolation because the truth is this world will become more wild and wickedness will continue to manifest. It is a sad state but to anarchy.

    Thanks for sharing. More grace

    The wickedness is everywhere
    We are not called to give up, give in and become like the world
    I have been struggling with giving up for the last two months, all kinds of wild thoughts.

    This strangely enough is the way out.
    We are called to arise (stand)
    Shine (The Holy Ghost is the source of the light so all I need to do is let him)
    For the light is come (Jesus)
    The glory of the LORD is risen upon me (The Holy Ghost in me)

    Gross darkness covers the earth (I don’t want to imagine)
    The Lord will arise upon me and His glory will be seen upon me.
