“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!
