The smoke of their torments


The smoke of their torments

‘And Abraham gat up early in the morning … and he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah … and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.’ Genesis 19:27–28

Suggested Further Reading: Jude 5–18

The assurance that God is just, even in the midst of his hot displeasure, must ever be cherished. The Judge of all the earth cannot but do right. 

Though he is terrible and dreadful in his anger, as a consuming fire, yet he is still our God for ever and ever, full of goodness and full of truth. 

There is a deep-seated unbelief among Christians just now, about the eternity of future punishment. It is not outspoken in many cases, but it is whispered; and it frequently assumes the shape of a spirit of benevolent desire that the doctrine may be disproved. 

I fear that at the bottom of all this there is a rebellion against the dread sovereignty of God. There is a suspicion that sin is not, after all, so bad a thing as we have dreamed. 

There is an apology, or a lurking wish to apologise for sinners, who are looked upon rather as objects of pity than as objects of indignation, and really deserving the condign punishment which they have wilfully brought upon themselves.

 I am afraid it is the old nature in us putting on the specious garb of charity, which thus leads us to discredit a fact which is as certain as the happiness of believers. 

Shake the foundations upon which the eternity of hell rests, and you have shaken heaven’s eternity too. ‘These shall go away into everlasting punishment; but the righteous into life eternal.’ 

There is precisely the same word in the original. 
We have it translated a little more strongly in our version, but the word stands the same; and if the one be not eternal, the other is not. 

Brethren, this is a fearful thing.
 Who can meditate upon the place appointed for the wicked without a shudder?

For meditation:

 ‘For ever’ sounds wonderful when applied to heaven, but appalling when applied to hell. If devils believe and tremble when they think about God (James 2:19), we should tremble and ensure we are trusting in Christ when we contemplate the suffering of the unsaved, which will never end (Mark 9:48; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 14:11).

Clearly Supernatural


Clearly Supernatural
"In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem: 
and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, 
as the angel of the LORD before them"  
 (Zechariah 12:8).

One of the best methods of the LORD's defending His people is to make them strong in inward might.
 Men are better than walls, and faith is stronger than castles. 

The LORD can take the feeblest among us and make him like David, the champion of Israel. LORD, do this with me! Infuse Thy power into me, and fill me with sacred courage that I may face the giant with sling and stone, confident in God. 

The LORD can make His greatest champions far mightier than they are: David can be as God, as the angel of Jehovah.
 This would be a marvelous development, but it is possible, or it would not be spoken of. 

O LORD, work with the best of our leaders! 
Show us what Thou art able to do--namely, 
to raise Thy faithful servants to a height of grace and holiness which shall be clearly supernatural! 
LORD, dwell in Thy saints, and they shall be as God; 
put Thy might into them, and they shall be as the living creatures who dwell in the presence of Jehovah. 

Fulfill this promise to Thine entire church in this our day, 
for Jesus' sake. 
Amen.

God’s barriers against man’s sin


God’s barriers against man’s sin

“Fear ye not me? 
saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, 
which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, 
that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, 
yet can they not pass over it? 
But this people hath a revolting and rebellious heart; 
they are revolted and gone.” 
Jeremiah 5:22-23

Suggested Further Reading: 
Isaiah 1:1-4

God here contrasts the obedience of the strong, the mighty, 
the untamed sea, with the rebellious character of his own people. 
“The sea,” saith he, “obeys me; it never breaks its boundary;
 it never leaps from its channel;
 it obeys me in all its movements. 

But man, poor puny man, the little creature whom I could crush as the moth, will not be obedient to me. 
The sea obeys me from shore to shore, without reluctance, 
and its ebbing floods, as they retire from its bed, 
each of them says to me, in the voices of the pebbles, 
‘O Lord, we are obedient to thee, for thou art our master.’ 

But my people”, says God, “are a revolting and a rebellious people; they go astray from me.” 
And is it not, my brethren, a marvellous thing, that the whole earth is obedient to God, save man? 
Even the mighty leviathan, who maketh the deep to be hoary, sinneth not against God, but his course is ordered according to his Almighty Master’s decree. 

Stars, those wondrous masses of light, are easily directed by the very wish of God; 
clouds, though they seem erratic in their movement,
 have God for their pilot; “he maketh the clouds his chariot;” 
and the winds, though they seem restive beyond control, 
yet do they blow, or cease to blow just as God wills. 

In heaven, on earth, even in the lower regions, we could scarcely find such a disobedience as that which is practised by man; 
at least, in heaven, there is a cheerful obedience; 
and in hell there is constrained submission to God, 
while on earth man makes the base exception, he is continually revolting and rebelling against his Maker.

For meditation:

 Jonah, a great wind, a great fish, a plant, 
a worm, an east wind (Jonah 1:3,4,17; 2:10; 4:6-8)
—which is the odd one out?

Answer: God’s servant Jonah
—the rest obeyed God at once. 
This should humble us!
