DCLM Daily Manna 18 November 2022 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — Closing In
TOPIC: Closing In (DCLM Daily Manna 18 November 2022)
TEXT: Isaiah 13:6-16 (KJV)
6 Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.
15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.
16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.
KEY VERSE: “Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.” – (Isaiah 13:6)
DCLM Daily Manna For Today MESSAGE:
It is amazing how the world reacts to divine truths. The modern man responds to spiritual realities as though they were imaginative conjectures. While most people would not dare stand before a moving train (because the danger is real), they grin, chuckle and sneer at the revelation that a day of judgment will come, when God’s anger will be unleashed on the earth.
The events in our text describe the time of the great tribulation. This is one of the significant events in God’s end-time programme. It is variously described as the time of Jacob’s trouble; a day of darkness and of gloominess; a day of clouds and of thick darkness; a day of desolation. It will be characterised by woes, judgments, famines, bloody wars, explosions, plagues, terror, anguish, earthquakes, eruptions, etc. The purpose of the great tribulation is to make Israel suffer so that they can cry out to the Messiah whom they, at present, reject. It is also to judge the unbelieving men and women of all ages.
The Bible states that the great tribulation will happen after the rapture of the Church and will last for seven years. It will end at the second advent of Jesus Christ when He descends on Mount Olives for a-thousand-year reign on earth called the millennial reign of Christ. It is post-rapture because God will not want His children to pass through the tribulation, its judgment and destructions. So He will take His children away from earth before the great tribulation.
How we need to be conscious of this fact and make deliberate effort to escape God’s judgment. Whilst sinners must repent of all sins, believers must maintain a daily life of holiness. It is also important to continue to warn sinners of the need to escape this imminent day of doom before it is too late.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
The day of reckoning is closing in.
