The desolations of the Lord, the consolations of his saints.


The desolations of the Lord, the consolations of his saints.

“Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.”
 Psalm 46:8-9

Suggested Further Reading: 
1 Samuel 5:1-7

Jehovah still standeth, “the same yesterday, to-day, and for ever.” One generation of idols has passed away, and another comes, and the desolations stand—memorials of the might of God. 

Turn now your eyes to Assyria, that mighty empire. 
Did she not sit alone? She said she should see no sorrow. Remember Babylon, too, who boasted with her. 

But where are they, and where are now their gods? 
With ropes about their necks they have been dragged in triumph by our archaeologists; and now in the halls of our land, they stand as memorials of the ignorance of a race that is long since extinct. 

And then, turn to the fairer idolatries of Greece and Rome. 
Fine poetic conceptions were their gods! 
Theirs was a grand idolatry, one that never shall be forgotten. 

Despite all its vice and lust, there was such a high mixture of the purest poetry in it, that the mind of man, though it will ever recollect it with sorrow, will still think of it with respect. 

But where are their gods? Where are the names of their gods?
 Are not the stars the last memorials of Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus?
 As if God would make his universe the monument of his destroyed enemy! Where else are their names to be found?
 Where shall we find a worshipper who adores their false deity? They are past, they are gone! 
To the moles and to the bats are their images cast, while many an unroofed temple, many a dilapidated shrine, stand as memorials of that which was, but is not—and is passed away for ever. 

I suppose there is scarce a kingdom of the world where you do not see God’s handiwork in crushing his enemies.

For meditation: 

The gods created by man can be destroyed by man, but the Lord made the heavens (Psalm 96:5; Isaiah 37:15-20). 
The false religions of today become the museum pieces of tomorrow.
