|The Final Fall
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
Today we breaking down the destruction of Nineveh. It hard not to think of the information in the book of Nahum of the fall of a great city of Nineveh, as well as it poetic nature. Yet life love and hope remains even in the chapter of destruction. As Babylon comes in to destroy Nineveh one knows destruction has come. The noise of chariots has they come in. The destruction of the city with death in the streets. People everywhere and death in multitude and not one at a time. This battle is down with sword and spears. If done today it would be machine guns and weapons of war. Death coming without delay of time. With images of war on the news in recent past, no one can ever forget horror and cheering at the same time. The sound of war and images of war never pretty. Yet the images of war is necessary in the cases like Nineveh. Nineveh destructors will also be taking Israel into captivity. With that in mind the godless nation of whoredom was only be taken by a bigger nation of whoredom.
Adam and Eve kicked out of Heaven because of their whoredom. Whoredom or idolatry causes future destruction. The idea of the tower of Babel in the book of Genesis, of building on tower to heaven. Is that not the temple of God bringing one group of people to God alone. The tower of Babel is really about people wanting to get to God on their own merit and not by the will or salvation from God.
The tower ideology of one faith. Why would it be destructive. The queen of Nineveh was to be worshipped. King Nebuchadnezzar was to be worshipped. The point is the ideology is who God are you serving and worshipping. If you worship a false God or obeying a false god like Satan, then you dealing with Eve and Adam plight, before they care cast from the garden. Instead of worshiping and obeying God that created them, they bowed to the serpent/Satan. Those that follow a false god or ideology is following in opposition to God. It is spiritual idolatry, adultery , from the true redeemer of mankind. I believe God gave man a choice by not creating him perfect. A choice to sin. Though that choice remains until Christ comes then the choice is done away with. No longer trapped by our humanity, but free to live sin free for those in Christ Jesus. Christ talked about the devil killing himself. That the devil would be divided if they fought against himself and with that in mind the devil could not stand.
The siege against Nineveh and the destruction of Nineveh would destroy the whole city. Army of men being like grasshoppers marching through. There would be no healing for those that had escaped from this great city, and yet the people who heard the story, the enemy of Nineveh would praise the Lord for the victory of the destruction. No matter the side you are on in victory or defeat, their will rise again victory and defeat until the final battle is over and done. The final victory of Godís people will rejoice in that day.
I am overcome by the thought of victory of Godís people. But amazed that the devil can not see it own destruction. God allows the devil to rise and destroy itself. Yet Godís people know that the end will surely come. They know the victory of serving God despite which devil acts to be in charge. When we trust in our own power and own might we will be defeated. If we trust in the Lord he will destroy and deliver his people. Even in exile Godís people are victorious. They still sit in the palace not as kings, but servants. Better to serve in the palace where you know what going on then in the gutter where you only year the gossip of what maybe. Godís people protected in the sense of the servants are not the enemy but those who lead in military brigade and the government. God warns of destruction and yet your job just changing from one place to the next. It might not be the place you want, but it is the job you got. When God destroys the enemy for the final battle, Godís kids will rule in the palaces, and those palaces will have no end. As long as the devil is rising up with deception as it power, then the devil is going to keep falling time and time again. May Godís people clap there hands together with the destruction of the devil.
Dear Heavenly Father thank you for the victory that comes in knowing you, despite the fact we live as pawns in the devils courts. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
