And I shall not hide My face from them anymore: for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel;” says the Lord God. Ezekiel 39:29 NKJV
God chose Israel to be set apart for Him. He chose Israel to live in a special relationship with Him. Israel disobeyed God. They rebelled against Him. Israel served false god’s. They worshiped idols. God never stopped loving Israel. He never gave up on them.
God told Israel He would love them regardless of their sin. God would reveal Himself to them. The Lord would pour out His Spirit upon them. Israel will love honor and worship their God.
God told the children of Israel He would forgive their sins. He would bless them. He would protect them. They would live in a special set apart relationship with God in this age and throughout eternity in the age to come!
God is saying the same things to us today. We failed to live up to the righteous standards of our God. Jesus does not want us to be separated from Him. Jesus wants us to live in a special set apart relationship with Him today and throughout eternity!
We have been forgiven of our sins. God will make His face shine upon us. He will pour out His Spirit upon us. Jesus will receive the glory praise and honor He deserves from us.
We will love Jesus just as we were created to love Him. We will receive His blessing and protection. We will live in a special set apart relationship with Jesus in this age and throughout eternity in the age to come!
God will bless us if we receive His salvation. God will do all the work. He does require something of us. The Lord requires that we accept the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ for our sin.
The Lord wants us to admit that we deserve the just punishment for turning away from Him. He wants us to accept that Jesus took the punishment we deserve!
If you are not sure that you have received God’s forgiveness you can be. Ask Jesus to forgive you of every sin you ever committed. Surrender your life to Jesus. Ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior today!
Ask Jesus to make you a new creation. Ask Him not to hide His face from you. Ask Jesus to pour out His Spirit upon you. Ask the Lord not to leave you to yourself!
Give Jesus a chance to convince you beyond all doubt He is the Lord your God!
