Being God’s chosen people is a privilege that demands the responsibility of holiness. Sinners should be afraid. God’s mercy is only one aspect of His character; His justice and holiness are other aspects. Only the righteous can dwell in the New Jerusalem where there will be the Presence of God, His peace and His provision.
The sinners in Zion are afraid;
Fearfulness has seized the hypocrites:
“Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire?
Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”
15 He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly,
He who despises the gain of oppressions,
Who gestures with his hands, refusing bribes,
Who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed,
And shuts his eyes from seeing evil:
16 He will dwell on high;
His place of defense will be the fortress of rocks;
Bread will be given him,
His water will be sure.
PRAY FOR THE SALVATION OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE BY GOD’S GRACE THROUGH FAITH IN YESHUA.
