“The Lord’s Hand is Not Shortened, Nor is His Ear Dull of Hearing”
Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or His ear dull, that it cannot hear; but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. Isaiah 59:1
God has the POWER to SAVE mankind from their iniquities or sins. However, it is MANKIND’S sins that will deter Him from not HEARING them when they offer up their prayers. Regardless of their situations, their SINS will hinder their prayers from being HEARD and ANSWERED by the ALMIGHTY GOD, the One who controls EVERY NATION.
Even though He controls EVERY NATION, their SALVATION is their choice, and when the PEOPLE are SINFUL and LAWLESS, the NATION tends to be SINFUL and LAWLESS. Sodom and Gomorrah are a good example of what I am talking about. Their SINFUL nature and REBELLIOUS attitude brought about their DESTRUCTION. You cannot flaunt your sinfulness in God’s face and not expect repercussions from the RIGHTEOUS, HOLY GOD.
SALVATION is as close as a PRAYER of REPENTANCE. God is READY and ANXIOUS to HEAR the PRAYER of REPENTANCE from those who are SEEKING FORGIVENESS. He relates to mankind on the basis of the CONDITION of their HEART, in other words, He will NOT hear if there is iniquities in their HEART, unless, it is FIRST the PRAYER of REPENTANCE. Then He will ANSWER the other PRAYERS, and will be willing to HELP in any situation. He will ABIDE with that person and will prepare a FOREVER HOME in HEAVEN for them.
However the person MUST be willing to TURN AWAY from their SINFUL lifestyle, because their sins are like a thick brick wall that SEPARATES them from the ALMIGHTY God, who LOVES them so much, that He sent His Only Begotten Son to take ALL the SINS of ALL mankind and die upon an OLD RUGGED CROSS, in their place. Sins SEPARATES us from our Heavenly Father, and Confessions PENETRATES the wall of sin that SEPARATES us.
You, however, can BREAK DOWN the wall of your sins that SEPARATES you from God , by TURNING AWAY FROM your sins and TURNING TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God , then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and have the ASSURANCE that He HEARS your PRAYERS and will see you through EACH and EVERY situation, because He LOVES YOU, and wants to SAVE YOU from an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL of its HORRORS. So do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
