Even from the fall of Adam's glory following the sin of disobedience, the LORD God had since begun to call the entire race to His refuge.
"CALL to Refuge" is the predicted word of knowledge for churches from the year 2001.
The modern technological developments, posing threats in several fronts: and the increase of deaths by wars and loudness of crimes in general, and the increased agonies of wildfire, hurricanes,cyclones, typhoon, earthquakes and compounded natural disasters seem to suggest the biblical predicted signs of the end of the world as the Lord said (Matt. 24:4-31 and Daniel 12:4). Beware, we have not come to tell anyone that the world shall end up in such and such day. No, God who said the world has an end, knows when...
We are rather telling you that the Lord has come for our rescue and to offer us a refuge in Himself. The first three scriptures above from Psalm 46, simplify God's unfailing now and eternal provision for mankind in general.
WHAT WE MUST KNOW
I) That God is our refuge.
ANALYSIS: That is, he is our shelter from pursuit of danger and troubles.
II) That God is our strength
ANALYSIS: That is, He is our ability in the place of our weakness and the joy of our confidence.
III) That God is a present help in trouble times
ANALYSIS: That is why He says, "call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and you shall glorify me" (Ps. 50:15).
He is a present help confirms His willingness and readiness as an instant Deliverer. In Isaiah ch. 14 vs 10 the Lord says: 'Fear you not; for I am with you (if you are for Him): be not dismayed-confused; for I am your God; I will stregthen you; yes I will help you, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness. We are in the position of God as our camp of refuge.
POSITION OF THE BELIEVERS
I) Therefore we will not fear
II) Though the earth be removed
III) Though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea
IV) Though the waters roar with troubles
(a) God is our Refuge
V) Though the mountains shake with swelling
(b) God is our Refuge
This is faith resisting the horrible and terrific challenges of situations. There is assurance and unmovable confidence in the unfailing will of God. It is God's will to do all He has pronounced to do. Our position is to believe it, no matter the conditional threats. Don't jitter and do not be afraid. Only the Lord you shall fear (Isa. 8:12-13).
Why must you believe what God says? You must believe what God says because your faith comes from His word. Faith overcomes the world, so have faith in God.
Have you been so disappointed with many thongs in this life? You feel so unfortunate, don't you? This open door can be the chance forever, so, make haste to believe Him and return. Amen
