“Separated From God”

By: Min. Devon Wilford-Said

 “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity: your lips have spoken lies, your ...tongue has muttered perverseness.

None calls for justice, nor any pleads for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

They hatch cockatrice eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eats of their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.

Their webs shall not become garments; neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.

Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.

The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goes therein shall not know peace.”
Isaiah: 59: 1-8 Holy Bible KJV

There’s an urgent call and cry from the Spirit; Yes, a voice that has cried in the wilderness for many centuries to make straight paths for the coming of the Lord. People of the world will you hear before it is too late?

How long will you go between two opinions? If you believe that there is no true and living God then continue on in your ways to see what your end shall be. But, and if you believe that the Lord God of our Fathers is the true and living God; and that he sent His only begotten Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to die for your sins then follow him. Why would you be separated from the only hope there is for eternal life?

We live in a world of hatred and violence…where the love of many has waxed cold. Many people choose to live in fear and subject themselves to a hopeless state of being. They choose to carry on in turmoil with feet swiftly running into mischief and by hastening to shed innocent blood.

We live in a world with men of power that have corrupted our nation with their pride, selfishness, greed, and insatiable lust for money in order to acquire wealth that they may hoard up everything for themselves, and to oppress the disadvantaged and disenfranchised.  
Will you be inclined to know the peace of God that surpasses all understanding, and to receive of His unconditional love that he has for you to heal your broken heart and to mend your lost soul? If you would humbly repent which is the act changing one’s mind; and to do that which is right? And give yourself completely to the one that is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than anyone could ask or think?

And if you would say, “yes” to His will—your separation from God would be ended thus giving you an ability to walk faithfully with your Heavenly Father who has chosen to bring you out of darkness and into His marvelous light. Think about it! ###
