Repent and turn from your idols and renounce all your detestable practices. What was spoken long ago applies to all of us today.
… ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Repent! Turn from your idols and renounce all your detestable practices! (NIV)
… ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Repent, turn away from your idols, and turn your faces away from all your abominations. (NKJV)
Lord, reveal to us where we have set up idols in our lives. Expose them, so we can break them down, get rid of them, and repent. Show us where our abomination and detestable practices are so we can turn our faces away from them. Lord, forgive us our sins, transgressions, and iniquities. Thank you, in Jesus Name I pray.
Everyone will have to give an account of their words on Judgment Day to the Lord God. No one is exempt.
36 But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the Day of Judgment for every empty word they have spoken. 37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Lord, help us to keep guard over our words. Help us to control our tongues; to use our tongues for good and not for evil. In Jesus Name.
God always makes known what He is going to do before He does it. He always gives warnings. Usually, God gives several warnings. The problem comes in because the people were not listening, paying attention, or just plain ignoring or rejecting it. God’s desire, which He states many times in the Holy Scriptures, is that NO man (human) perish.
God will be made known above all. “Then they will know that I am the LORD.” There will be no doubt about it. What God says is true.
7 … and you shall know that I am the LORD.
10 And they shall know that I am the LORD; I have not said in vain …
13 Then you shall know that I am the LORD,
14 … Then they shall know that I am the LORD.’ ”
Are you tired and weary? Are you worn-out, frustrated, or burdened? Are you carrying a load to heavy that’s pulling you down? Here is the solution for you. Call on Jesus, follow Him, learn what He says and he guarantees you rest; you will definitely find relief.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
John the Baptist was not the only one in the New Testament who preached repentance. Jesus also taught repentance.
Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand. If you don’t know what is meant by “the Kingdom of Heaven or the Kingdom of God” I suggest you go directly to God and ask Him. Search the Scriptures. He will reveal to you what it means. It is better for you to go directly to Jesus and the Holy Scriptures than for me to tell you. You will truly be blessed.
The overall message is to proclaim the Good News – Jesus Christ is Son of God and Saviour. Repent of your sins, follow Jesus and you will be saved. You will have eternal life in heaven with the Mighty One.
