So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. You shall eat plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And my people shall never be put to shame.
Then you will know that I am in the midst of Israel; I am the Lord your God And there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame. Joel 2:25-27 NKJV
God is speaking to the children of Israel in biblical times. The Lord is speaking to His children today. God’s mercy triumphs over judgment today!
God judges sin. He judges nations for the sins of their people. God has poured out His wrath on the ungodly people of the world in the past. He will pour out His wrath on the ungodly nations of the world in the future.
God will show mercy to all people who call on the name of Jesus!
God deals wondrously with the people He created. The Lord made a way for His mercy to triumph over His just judgment. Jesus Christ is the way!
Jesus is the Lord of second chances. He is the God of new beginnings. Jesus wants to make all things new in your life today. He wants to make you a new creature. Jesus wants to give you a new future. He wants to give your life new meaning.
How will God do these things in your life? By faith in Jesus Christ. The Great I Am will bring healing and restoration into your life if you trust Him with it!
God is going to pour out His Spirit on all flesh. The sons and daughters of His people will prophesy. The old among us will dream dreams. The young will see visions. The poor in spirit and resources will be filled with the Spirit of God. The will serve Jesus in amazing ways. Will you be one of them?
Great wonders will appear in the heavens and on the earth before Jesus returns for His people. And all people who call on the Name of the Lord will be saved! Have you received the salvation God longs to pour out on all people?
The most amazing time in human history awaits us. Will it be a blessing beyond measure for you? Or will it be a curse?
The God of New beginnings longs to bless you from this day forth and on into eternity!
Human beings are reward driven. Jesus will grant the desires of our hearts when He returns. People who love honor and worship the lamb of God will spend eternity basking in the Sonlight of His love. We will worship the God of new beginnings night and day.
People who thumb their noses at the love of God in this life will be greeted by the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. They will spend eternity separated from the love of God.
Jesus is at the door of your heart knocking. Will you choose a new beginning with the God of mercy and grace or a horrible ending not designed for the people God created in His image and likeness?
