Day 162- Richmond, Virginia: The Promised Land
We are all heading to a place that is much better than the evil and sin of this world, aren’t we? The “Promised Land” is for everyone, but we also must follow the illuminated path, from God, that leads us there. If we do not follow the signs on the roadmap Jesus has given us, we will eventually go over a cliff, end up in another state (hell), and or run out of gas before we reach our destination. The realization is that we do not have to look any further than the cemetery to realize that our lives on this planet will eventually come to an end.
There is no cheating death, there is no liquid we can drink, and there is no special food that we can eat that will keep us alive on Earth forever. At some point our bodies, and minds will fail us, and usually this will happen when we least expect it. At that moment is when it really hits us. We most likely will begin to wish that we could try to go back and reverse our past sins immediately. We may beg and pled with God for forgiveness in the 11th hour, but it may be too late. If it is, what will we do? How will we reason with God to forgive us for turning our backs on Him, when He cried out for us to repent over and over again throughout our lives?
From Joshua, “Now behold, today I am going the way of all the earth, and you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one word of all the good words which the LORD your God spoke concerning you has failed; all have been fulfilled for you, not one of them has failed. It shall come about that just as all the good words which the LORD your God spoke to you have come upon you, so the LORD will bring upon you all the threats, until He has destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God has given you. When you transgress the covenant of the LORD your God, which He commanded you, and go and serve other gods and bow down to them, then the anger of the LORD will burn against you, and you will perish quickly from off the good land which He has given you”. Amen.
