turtle30cshell Daily Devotions For September 11, 2022

Daily Devotions:
by Christina Farris

Revelation 16:14-21 KJV
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Is there comfort to know the day of remembrance is coming. Today marks the annivesary September 11, 2001. Is it a day we want to remember or a day we want to remind us how vulernable all nations in the world truly are. The insurrection on the capital only claim our nation vulernability as well as the vulernability of all nations. Queen Elizabeth knew the vulernability first hand because of World War II as Hilter marched toward her and yet did not take her and many European nations including the United States that stood up to him. The horror of the people watching their beloved nations being destroyed because one in power. Yet the allies of our nations stood their ground and won. On 911 it may of been the warnings of war, but not a war that could not be won and continues on today against the acts of terror both abroad and on the home front.

God and Christ are returning to the earth and like the day of judgment came to Babylon. It came without warning it came with speed of a take over, and it came with Israel experience freedom in one since different then they had ever known. As Assyria, then the Greeks and then the Roman's moved in a new freedom imerged in their world. A freedom from the laws of God, but not freedom from their God. God had called them to be separate people of faith. Meaning a faith to invoke the laws of God privately and outwardly in their daily living. A different type of freedom emerging. Not of God but of man. Our own nation celebrates freedom of religion and freedom of the press, and yet their are times these two seem to be intrapped by the government. If any groups is causing and uprising then government will come, investigate and maybe destroys or seeks to divide. The devil often trying to lay blame to these group because they are trying hard to be wolves in sheep clothing disguised and yet seem to be able to remove themselves from the line of fire. There are groups that terrorize the church world and yet act like sheep, to only try and suck the life our of the church, not understanding the power of God to keep his people protected.

God is sending his Son like a thief in the night, to take his people home, to bring them to Beulah land, a New Jerusalem in which to live. Until that day, we remember the day when the enemy thought he could win and could not. He gave his best effort only discover the true colors of freedom rang throught the land and people united together to fight the terror of extremist that did not understand what freedom was. Freedom meaning to live in a world where we choose our faith, our jobs, our home, and who we are friends with and who the enemy truly is.

Meaning the comfort of home sweet home in our land that is often shakened by the outside world where men and woman agree to disagree based on laws. That same freedom God gave man that walked on the earth. He destoryed not until sin reach the heighth of his (home)heaven. When it was reaching the perimeter God destruction always came. Once by flood, once by confusion, several times by exile, and other times by sending his people abroad to find places they could live in peace and harmony among people of the world.

When the final battle comes, God's people will be in sweet Beulah land, the New Jerusalem. None of us can image to be taken from where we stand homeward bound. Yet death of people in the workforce, to the hospitals is only a reminder of it. Instant no way of stopping when death calls. All the plagues in the world preparing the world for the final judgment call before the wrath of God comes like lightening to the earth.

Those that try and destroy like God fail to understand the wrath of God is not by the force of man. He needs us not to kill, he need us to show his love to those that are not listening to his call or his Spirit. We need to love so they might see the light of God's love and embrace the love of Christ. On 911 to hate is to say we do not believe love can overcome. In truth love can overcome. What happened in 911 we set captives free in foreign lands that had dictators holding the people hostage from freedom with abuse of religion, control and so forth. There other nations still without freedom. God when he comes for his people will be giving them a land of faith and continual light. Something we fully do not grasp. It different then tyrant control, it about love and peace, one faith, unity of a people under one power with freedom of what, one anchor who is Christ the Lord, and all else free to explore that not evil or destructive. To being builders and not people of destruction. A kingdom of faith to seeing love always wins and brings about peace.

God is only giving the final judgment to people of destruction, people that desire evil and not God's grace. God is giving people what they are asking for, yet they truly in reality do not want it. No one wants to be the person in the lions den or the fiery furance, but it sure brings about a lot of spectators. Those without God knew not God grace of either a quick death or being pulled from the dangers of the pit or having the fourth man walking through the fire with them, like Shadrach, Meshrach, and Abednego. They knew no doubt the fourth man being Christ himself. No scars, no pain, maybe no heat, but the flames licked their feet.

No one wants to be in the judged with out Christ, without the grace and mercy of God. No one wants to be terrorized day and night. If God allows you a time of seeing his wrath in the world we live in, thank God you are only the spectator of it and not the victim. God has his Son return, it will be seen in the eastern sky by the world, and yet none of us understand it. We just know that every eye will see him. That takes faith, for our world is round. Yet we all will see his coming. Is it enough as a believer to know eternity is coming. That eternity in a new world of love and hope. The things of this earth will grow strangely dim at the light of his word. Our reality is without full understanding, but not without hope.

May the rememberance of 911 only remind us what a united front really means in our world today. May we hold to truth, and keep the enemy knock down, because love always wins.

Dear Heavenly Father you bring us to reminder of what victory with you is about. That freedom is special thing you gave upon our earth. And yet with that freedom man corrupts and works hard to leave you out, only not to have the power to win for eternity. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Continual Scripture Study: 1 Corinthians 15:51-58 KJV
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
