They hid in the garden from Him when they had sinned against Him, they were hidden in the ark from the wrath of God that was soon to fall. They hid behind doorposts and lintels covered in blood, from the angel of death. “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” (Col. 3:3)
The wrath of God has not been experienced by anyone living today on a worldwide scale, but some living today may soon experience it. The Almighty always keeps a remnant for Himself, in these days they are called born-again believers, those who have given the entirety of their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ, those who have been crucified with Him.
This planet is under the judgment of God, it has been condemned, but for us the verse is truth, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1) We will be spared from the coming wrath, just as Noah and his family were, just as Lot and his were.
It is called by the common man the rapture, or removing of the church, those that are chosen of God, but there will be many left behind who will become in those days of Jacob’s Troubles our brothers and sisters in Christ. It is those that we are to reach out to, those that we are to set the example for today in our lives, our walk with Christ.
To those of you who are witnessing for the Lord, remember this, that each one that you speak with may be a fellow believer, just not yet, when the wrath of God begins to fall upon this earth, those that you spoke to will remember your words, and I am not speaking about those who only invite others to church, but those who love the Lord enough to take the time out of their busy day to do a work for the Almighty, those who know for a fact that they are to speak of Him at every opportunity.
If you have been blessed to be present when someone is born-again, then you understand the importance of these words, if not, yet you still continue to speak to all who will listen, then you have done as you have been commanded to. Those who know where the hiding place is and do not invite all in will have some very serious explaining to do, if you believe that because you have the appropriate haircut, wear the proper clothing, and always have a good demeanor about you that those who meet and speak with you will automatically think you are a Christian, think again.
Unless you open your mouth and begin professing the Lord Jesus Christ to them, you are no more in their eyes than a good person.
And if you think that the Almighty is going to overlook or excuse your inactions, think again.
You have been shown what is happening in the world today, you know what is approaching, you know where the only safe hiding place is, if you will not openly speak of those things, you need to ask yourself why? Why do I fear to speak His name, what is causing me to not offer to all who will listen the way of escape, the way of salvation. “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matt. 10:28)
It isn’t difficult to know who understands where that hiding place is, they are out in the open, walking in the light of the Lamb, professing and confessing His love to nearly all they meet.
You will not find them hiding.
