What we would call the second coming; meaning that it has yet to happen. God speaks to his enemies and ours and says, “get ready for war.” Get ready for judgment; sanctify and prepare yourself to the best of your ability because you’re going to war with God. On one hand this is scary to think of; there’s a sense in which God is mocking the very people He’ll will one day judge. No one goes to war with God, He’s God! Also, wrapped up in this message of coming judgment is the sliver of hope that The Gospel message contains . . . “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.” There will be a day of judgement for all who’ve unrepentantly sinned against God and His people, the way of escape is to return to God.
"Repent, The Kingdom of God is at Hand!"
CALL TO WORSHIP
“I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works,
I will meditate.”
Vs. 9-12 - Prepare For War with God
Vs. 13 - Time’s Up!
"Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”
