The concept of reckoning or to be more accurate reconcilaition refers to the process by which All things are not simply made right, as in an accounting principal (balanced) no this is much more intent and complete, it is a clean slate, it has been wiped clean a new fresh start. Why would we need a fresh clean start, why isnt forgiveness, love, and kindness enough.
We are not dealing with man, or a false idea of who God is. Let the words of Asaph ring TRUTH into our ears and understand the prophetic nature of God’s Word and discern the time in which we as a nation hang in the balance.
Starting in verse 1 “The MIGHTY One, GOD, The LORD SPEAKS and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets”.
Intially we discover that first God, The LORD is Mighty and there is NONE like Him. also, there is a rising and a setting, a completion of a term or cycle. The END of it.
“Our GOD comes and WILL NOT BE SILENT, a FIRE devours before Him, and around Him a tempest rages. He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that He may JUDGE His people. [Psalms 50:3-4] NIV
The timing now is not one of silence but of clear and concise bold confession. There must be a distinct noticaeable and tangible difference between those He is about to JUDGE. God is a “Consuming Fire” as noted throughout scripture. Abraham, Moses, Elijah, John, Peter, and Paul they all knew that He consumes that which is offered up to Him. The chaos is all around, but it is NOT near Him for He is not moved or shaken by anything, He is The One that does the shaking!
“Gather to ME My consecrated ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice”. [Ps 50:5]
A fire, a sacrifce, a consectrated – devoted offering made unto the LORD, establishes The TRUE Covenant. Not just those who provide lip service with discontent in their hearts.
“And the heavens proclaim His Righteousness, for GOD Himself IS Judge.” V6.
God alone established His standard so it is God alone that will determine and JUDGE rightly, in regards to the adherence and the value a person they themselves have placed upon it, His WORD. So we see a seperation occuring in the midst of the chaos, those that would follow the principles of God and those that would cast off their restraints and pursue pleasure (safety) unto their own destruction. Here in verses 16-22 God deals directly with those that think themselves wise in this world, and seemingly mock God and His Holy WORD. Some familiar names might pop in to your head as you read.
“But to the wicked, GOD says: “What right have you to recite MY LAWS or take MY COVENANT on your lips? You hate MY Instruction and cast MY WORDS behind you. When you see a theif, you join with him; you throw your lot in with adulterers. You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit (lies). You speak continually against your brother and slander your own mother’s son. These things you have done and I kept silent; you thought I was altogether like you.
But I WILL REBUKE you and accuse you to your face.
CONSIDER this, you who forget GOD, or I will tear you to pieces with None to rescue.”
What an indictment against the “woke” “politically correct” “culture canceling” “religious-inclusiveness” and “race baiting” mantra of todays liberal left and demon-cratic party! Yes they pretend to stand up for God and even quote a scripture every now and again. How dare anyone think they can mock God and it will not return upon their own head. His Day of Reckoning is quickly approaching. And it would be wise to heed the WORDS of THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY..
Psalms 50:23 He who sacrifices Thank offerings honors me, and he Prepares the Way so that I MAY SHOW him the Salvation of GOD.
We as in ALL believers are called to Prepare The Way of the coming of The LORD, as Elijah/John the Baptist, we should be thankful for ALL Gods continued blessing and provision. And GOD Himself will reveal to us His Salvation.
A day is coming, it is not a pleasant day, but one of calamity and grief. The Day of Reckoning will reveal by fire what your house is made of.
The Way of salvation, God or Yah IS salvation, we call Him Yeshua or Jesus. Do you KNOW HIM?
