Seek the Lord While He May Be Found!
Isaiah 55:1-13 Amplified Bible “Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing].
2 Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy].
3 Incline your ear [submit and consent to the divine will] and come to Me; hear, and your soul will revive; and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with you, even the sure mercy (kindness, goodwill, and compassion) promised to David.
4 Behold, I have appointed him (Him) [David, as a representative of the Messiah, or the Messiah Himself] to be a witness [one (One) who shall testify of salvation] to the nations, a prince (Prince) and commander (Commander) to the peoples.
5 Behold, you [a][Israel] shall call nations that you know not, and nations that do not know you shall run to you because of the Lord your God, and of the Holy One of Israel, for He has glorified you.
6 Seek, inquire for, and require the Lord while He may be found [claiming Him by necessity and by right]; call upon Him while He is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have love, pity, and mercy for him, and to our God, for He will multiply to him His abundant pardon.
8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
12 For you shall go out [from the spiritual exile caused by sin and evil into the homeland] with joy and be led forth [by your Leader, the Lord Himself, and His word] with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the Lord for a name of renown, for an everlasting sign [of jubilant exaltation] and memorial [to His praise], which shall not be cut off.”
Jesus IS Lord! Jesus IS coming soon! One day, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD! Leave behind your hurt, bitterness, critical words! Run from skepticism and unbelief!! It only brings hurt and harm to you! You are forfeiting God’s treasures, for what will one day burn up and no longer exist! You are forfeiting the very call to salvation for things that will not even matter and will no longer even be remembered! God is calling you. You have time, but it is not long. That day IS fast approaching! GET IT RIGHT! GET IT RIGHT! Look, even now the Lord is holding His hand out to you! Stop deceiving yourself!! God is not mocked!! Don’t turn your face away from the cries of a good and righteous God. The God who sent His Son to die for you!! He loves you, but there is only one way to be reconciled to Him and that is through the blood of Jesus!! Put it off no longer! Accept Him while He may still be found….His return is sooner than you think!
God gave this to me in prayer tonight! It is a cry from His heart, I promise you! If you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, please pray this prayer with me….
Dear Lord, I confess to you that I have sinned. I ask that you forgive me. I make, Jesus, Your Son Lord of my life! According to Romans 10:9-10 which says, “Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.
I confess this now with my mouth and receive the promise of Your salvation and I will from this day forward live my life to the best of my ability for You! Thank you Jesus for coming into my life and saving me! In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray…Amen!
Find a Bible believing church, one that teaches Jesus is the ONLY way to salvation! Get rooted there and read and meditate on the Bible daily. Pray to God as though He is your best friend, because He is! You can now stand assured you are in the family of God and on your way to heaven, glory to God!! Tell others about Him! Always remember, Jesus loves you and He loves the ones that will be brought into your path to be given the same chance we have been given and that is to proclaim that JESUS IS LORD Of OUR LIVES!! God bless you as you grow in Him!!
