Why art thou cast down within me, O my soul? and how has thou so soon forgotten the salvation of the Almighty?
Thinkest thou thy sadness deeper than the Red Sea where which thy God parted the waters thereof to deliver Moses and his company from their enemies whom were mightier than they?
Dost thou suppose thy tears to flow swifter than the waters of Jordan which thy God did dry that the news thereof caused all of the inhabitants of Canaan to tremble?
Considerest thou thine anguish stronger than the great walls of Jericho which did crumble before Joshua and the children of Israel that they might have victory over the stronghold?
How thinkest thou that thou art forsaken?
Dost thou presume the shadow of thy past more haunting that which Goliath did cast upon David as he stood before him? And yet with a small stone were the taunts and mockings of that Philistine silenced.
Verily I say unto thee, O my soul, that ye can do greater with much less than a stone; yeah, even a mustard seed.
So why doubtest thou, O ye of little faith?
Art thou so soon ready to faint in the heat of temptation despite thy brethren, Azariah, Hananiah, and Mishael, whom stood firm, even in the midst of the fiery furnace which burned hotter than the lusts within you?
Believeth thou that thy Righteous Father will suffer you to be overcome by your sins when even faithful Daniel was not overcome by the crushing jaws of the lions?
Repent from all thy doubting and turn to thy God that in Him, ye may find help and be able to stand in the hour of temptation which is to come upon the earth. Yea, and even now hast that hour come.
Trust not in man’s devices: neither their technologies, nor their governments; neither their sorceries, nor their pharmakeia.
Pursue not their ways: neither their traditions, nor their education; neither their careers, nor their riches.
Come out from among them and be ye separate, taking no thought for your life, neither for the things of this world.
Rather seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven, having all faith in thy Father in Heaven; for He is mighty to save and able to give thee far greater than all that which the world giveth; yes, even the desires of your heart.
Lastly, fear not the fears of the ungodly, for they shall come upon them; but rather fear ye God. For His wrath shall come swiftly upon all the world, and they that scoff, and all they that work iniquity shall cry out unto the mountains:
Fall on us, and hide us from the wrath of the Lamb!
but none shall save them, neither shall any stay the hand of the Most High. It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Be sober, therefore, and watch. For soon, He that cometh will come, and will not tarry. Then shall all be judged according to their works.
Blessed is the man that, when his Master cometh, shall find him doing that which he had been commanded.
O my soul, fear not, but be encouraged; for truly thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest. Continue, therefore, in good works and hope to the end in the engrafted Word which is able to save you.
