Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land,
who do his just commands;
seek righteousness; seek humility;
perhaps you may be hidden
on the day of the anger of the Lord.
Busquen al SEÑOR, Todos ustedes, humildes de la tierra Que han cumplido Sus preceptos; Busquen la justicia, busquen la humildad. Quizá serán protegidos El día de la ira del SEÑOR.
God cannot and will not allow the evil and injustice keep prevailing on this Earth. He has allowed it for a time, but there will be a day when his wrath will prevail over all the wrong. This tells us how we can escape and hide in His amazing love.
15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
15 Y los reyes de la tierra, y los grandes, los comandantes, los ricos, los poderosos, y todo siervo y todo libre, se escondieron en las cuevas y entre las peñas de los montes; 16 y decían a los montes y a las peñas: Caed sobre nosotros y escondednos de la presencia del que está sentado en el trono y de la ira del Cordero, 17 porque ha llegado el gran día de la ira de ellos, ¿y quién podrá sostenerse?
It really won’t matter what the position is of any man or woman on that last day. No matter how rich or powerful you are, you will still answer to God. Is it all really about gaining riches and power for ourselves? No way! It is all about Jesus!
For their heart was not right with him, neither were they steadfast in his covenant. But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath. For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passes away, and comes not again.
Pues su corazón no era leal para con El, ni eran fieles a su pacto. Mas El, siendo compasivo, perdonaba sus iniquidades y no los destruía; muchas veces contuvo su ira, y no despertó todo su furor. Se acordaba de que ellos eran carne, un soplo que pasa y no vuelve.
Our Father is merciful! Many, many times He could have easily destroyed us all and all of our devices. He knows us better than we know ourselves. Why would we keep pushing against Him? Why would we live in sin and misery when we know it wrong? God loves us and has compassion upon us. Let’s give Him the honor and worship He deserves. Thank You Father!
