The Fragility of Mankind
A voice was saying, “Cry out!” Another said, “What should I cry out?” “All humanity is grass, and all its goodness is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flowers fade when the breath of the Lord blows on them; indeed, the people are grass. The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God remains forever.”--------Isaiah 40:6-8
Mankind and ALL its good deeds are dispensable. In other words, mankind and the works of man cannot and will NOT be able to stand the test of time. This world and EVERYTHING in it will be destroyed, according to God’s ULTIMATE plan.
Man is a fragile being with limited capabilities and the Word of Almighty God says that from the dust of the earth man was formed and when his time has ended he will return to the earth from whence he came. The prophet Isaiah says that mankind and his goodness is liken to the grass and flower of the field. The grass withers, and the flowers fade when the breath of the Lord blows on them. Which is really an EXCELLENT picture of how FRAGILE man is and how POWERFUL God is. Yet mankind has, through the ages, TRIED to usurp the POWER of ALMIGHTY GOD, only to fail miserably in their meager attempts.
God is God and there is NO COMPARISON!! Mankind and ALL his goodness will wither and fade, but the Word of God will REMAIN FOREVER. The goodness of God is and will be FOREVER exemplified by His mighty works and will last throughout ALL ETERNITY.
If you have NEVER given your HEART and LIFE to the Lord, then your destiny will be like that of the grass and flower of the field. You will WITHER and FADE away without the GOODNESS of Almighty God. You will spend ALL eternity in torment, misery, and void of ANYTHING good. However, YOU can change your destiny by: CONFESSING your sins to God 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. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
