The Lord gives warnings to the inhabitants of the earth,When God's restraining hand is removed, the destroyer begins his work. Then in our cities the greatest calamities will come....The Lord is slow to anger.
This should inspire the heart with gratitude. [Nahum 1:3 quoted]. The Lord puts constraint upon His own attributes. Omnipotence is exerted over Omnipotence Himself. Notwithstanding the perversity of men who are cumberers of the ground, the Lord Jehovah bears with them because there are some in the wicked cities who are within the possibility of forgiveness and acceptance with God.
The plagues of God are already falling upon the earth, sweeping away costly structures as if by a breath of fire from heaven. Will not these judgments bring professing Christians to their senses? God permits them to come that the world may take heed, that sinners may be afraid and tremble before Him.
We must remember that though they have lost their first estate, the fallen angels are wise above the wisdom of earth, for they have been in the councils of heaven....He who is closely connected with Christ will be strengthened to withstand human and satanic devisings.LAST DAY EVENTS (chapter 14 calamities)
