“The Sure Foundation”
The LORD is exalted, for He dwells on high; He will fill Zion with His justice and righteousness. He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure. Isaiah 33:5-6
Many of us have heard the illustration of the WISE and FOOLISH builders. This story exemplifies the IMPORTANCE of having a FIRM, SURE FOUNDATION. The FOOLISH builder built his house on the ground without a foundation, and when the FLOOD came, the river CRASHED against the house and IMMEDIATELY it COLLAPSED. And the destruction was GREAT! But the WISE builder built his house on the ROCK, with a SURE FOUNDATION. And when the flood came, and the river crashed against the house, it could NOT be shaken, because it was built on a SURE FOUNDATION, that was on the SOLID ROCK. (Luke 6:48)
The Prophet Isaiah, was speaking to the remnant of Jews, telling them God is exalted and He dwells on High; He fills Zion with His JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS. And that He will be their SURE FOUNDATION for their times. This is a GREAT MESSAGE for God’s TRUE CHILDREN, today. He wants to be our SURE FOUNDATION, so when the FLOOD of UNCERTAINTIES beat against us, we can TAKE COURAGE, and have His ABIDING PEACE, in knowing we are built on a STRONG, SURE FOUNDATION, with JESUS CHRIST as our CHIEF CORNERSTONE. He is our ROCK on which we can run to and be safe.
However, if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, your like the FOOLISH BUILDER, who has NO SURE FOUNDATION, and when the STORMS and FLOODS of UNCERTAINTIES, like what we are going through now, with the Covid-19 virus, comes, where can you go for PEACE of mind, and just how COURAGEOUS can you be, without that SURE FOUNDATION?
We are facing PERILOUS TIMES, and we ALL NEED a SURE FOUNDATION, God is beckoning us to COME to HIM and receive from His rich store of SALVATION and WISDOM and KNOWLEDGE. The FEAR, that is: REVERANCE and RESPECT, of the LORD, is the KEY to this TREASURE. And there is ONLY ONE WAY to benefit from it. You MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and let Him be your SURE FOUNDATION, on which you will build your RIGHTEOUS RELATIONSHIP with Him. And you will GAIN Heaven with ALL its BLESSINGS, and be able to ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY TO ESCAPE. So, Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
