And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the LORD
Shall be saved.
For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance,
As the LORD has said,
Among the remnant whom the LORD calls. Joel 2:32 NKJV
When we hear a small child crying, every mother in the vicinity listens as our ears perk up because every mother knows her child’s cry. If the child can talk and we hear, “Mama” we run to save our child from whatever is making them call us. God, our Father, knows the cries of His children and He will respond.
Considering the many gods people worship, I wonder which of them will respond to a plea for help when the people who worship them call on them.
Will Buddha respond to a cry for help?
Will any of the prophets respond to a cry for help?
Will any of the beads, the crosses, the idols that so many worship respond to a cry for help?
Nothing made by the hands of man can respond to a cry for help or anything else. They have no life in them and therefore cannot do anything to save life. The only thing that things can do is what they are manipulated to do by the hands of man.
A car–and so many worship their vehicles–is a non-living entity and can do nothing on its own unless manipulated by a person–someone controlling what it does.
Houses–those structures in which we live and that some people worship–made by the hands of man and have no life of their own–cannot save anyone.
Equipment–made by men and manufactured to save lives–is marvelous when used correctly by men/women and can save lives, but if we simply look at them and call upon them, they will not respond.
When we are in trouble as those were at the time Joel was prophesying as God spoke, we can know there is but One who will respond to our call for help and save us from ourselves–The Lord. And just as a remnant–a handful–were saved then, there will come a time when another remnant–those who refuse to budge from their faith and stance pertaining to The Word of God–will be saved when they call upon the name of The Lord.
Not one person–especially those running for political office has the power to save us–individually or as a nation and they should all stop lying to appease the media and the masses who are gullible enough to believe them.
What this country needs is total reliance and dependence on Jesus Christ–living every day according to The Word of God, seeking His wisdom–constantly and ignoring all the hoopla and loud noises of those who can’t save themselves and certainly cannot save others.
Okay–we still have time to seek God and His wisdom in order to put the right person in the White House–someone who cares about all Americans, not just the rich or 1%, but all who live in the land.
You said if we called upon You in the time of need You would save us and deliver us from evil. Right now, I’m calling on You to give us direction and wisdom to select the person who knows You and with whom You have an airtight relationship. Thank You for hearing and responding to this plea for help for the nation. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!
