Wrath Resistant Revival

March 6

"For the wrath of GOD is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, ..."  Romans 1:18




"... any understanding of GOD disturbed of this equation, produces a gutless gospel."






If you hold no fear of GOD, I question whether you have ever, even one time, heard GOD.  Is there not a willful and unholy deafness about us?  'NO FEAR' ... has become the  Neo-National Anthem, and even worse, has been added to the hymnal of the Church. The modern day false-prophet who seeks to fashion a sin friendly savior, really deserves the more appropriate title: false-profit: "Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD."  For their own ends, they have intentionally diluted the gospel, "...Making the word of GOD of none effect..."  Gospel, Biblically defined is: good news, but apart from bad news, the entire issue is moot.  Mercy is founded upon wrath, grace is founded upon mercy, and any understanding of GOD disturbed of this equation, produces a gutless gospel.  Wrath not only precedes mercy, it precipitates it.  In spite of much of what you hear, sin still inflames the heart of GOD; and HIS view of the works of our flesh has not been altered by the passing eons of time.  "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of GOD upon the children of disobedience."  There can be no clearer revelation of the wrath of GOD than the cross of CHRIST!  In glorious and holy eclipse, the SON of GOD satisfied the wrath of GOD.  Today however, men mock the cross, scoff at the cross, deny the cross, some perhaps even wonder at the cross, but few there be who rightly perceive the cross.  Paul bemoaned this same tragic phenomena in his day when he stated: "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; ..."

For the perceptive though, who do rightly interpret the language of the cross, there is mercy with the LORD. "For GOD hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our LORD JESUS CHRIST ... Much more then, being now justified by HIS blood, we shall be saved from wrath through HIM."

Habakkuk looked unto the gathering cloud of Babylonian hoards in his day and prayed: "O LORD, I have heard THY speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive THY work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy."  As the concussion of tribulation cannons approach in our day, pray earnestly for revival and: "Keep yourselves in the love of GOD, looking for the mercy of our LORD JESUS CHRIST unto eternal life." ...assured that the gathering clouds of wrath merely indicate that:

"... your redemption draweth nigh"

For Love of Country
William Samuel Johnson (1727-1819)
(Signature to the U. S. Constitution)
"Remember, too, that you are the redeemed of the LORD, that you are bought with a price, even the inestimable price of the precious blood of the SON OF GOD.  Adore JEHOHAH, therefore as your GOD and your JUDGE.  Love, fear, and serve HIM as your CREATOR, REDEEMER, and SANCTIFIER."
