Showing Your Muscles - Radio Broadcast for November 26, 2012I used to love it when my brother would show off his muscles. I would try to show mine, but at age four, there wasn't much to show. There were times in my youth that muscle bearing either spared me trouble or brought me some depending on the challenge. I have little urge to show off today.
In Isaiah 52:10 we read: The Lord has made bare His holy arm In the eyes of all the nations; And all the ends of the earth shall see The salvation of our God. (NKJV)
I love it that the Lord will show His strength and will deliver His people from all their troubles. Everyone will see His strength. He came as the Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world the first time. Next, He comes to make war on the enemies of God and of God's people. Every nation will see and every nation will bow before Him. God has a plan for Israel to restore and to fulfill every promise ever made to her.
When God bares His arm, only the foolish would take the challenge, and fools they are who have and will challenge God. It is so much better to respond to the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of all who will surrender their lives to God. Resistance only makes sure just judgment at the end of time. I take comfort in knowing that all will see the salvation of our God, I have hope that more of you will respond to His love and grace and come into fellowship with Him.
