We continue to consider just what the Saviour tells us about Himself, the SHEPHERD and His sheep. We considered how the Lord knew his sheep but the sheep also know the shepherd
SINNERS EVER RUN AND HIDE FROM THE VOICE OF THE LORD.
We noted Genesis 3:8. All their lives they do so. And it is how it ends. They who wish to hide away from the gospel light have their wish granted! “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day,” Jude 6. Here is the darkness to which sinners are going!
“These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever,” 2 Peter 2:17. Darkness, eternal darkness awaits the gospel rejector!
“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Rev 6:15-17. The Lord’s voice will be hear by men however on that day. “The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel,” Joel 3:15-16.
Beware, boys and girls, of rejecting Christ’s voice of mercy.
