OPENING COMMENT by Robert
Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. Isaiah 26:20
Into chambers of devotion, “Enter into thy closet, and shut thy door, Matthew 6:6. Be private with God: Enter into thy chamber, to examine thyself, and commune with thy own heart, to pray and humble thyself before God” This work is to be done in times of distress and danger. Thus we hide. That is, we recommend ourselves to God to protect us, and he will defend us either under heaven or in heaven.
This current Malady has presented the world and the population an opportunity to recognize one fundamental issue in their lives their “mortality.” Fear has brought the world to a standstill, it has forced a halt, in modern terms, society has had to push the pause button on their lives.
For the multitudes walking in the world, it had placed them before lifes mirror and placed the reality, their time here in this world could be ended, and a final judgment faced, the fear they face is possibly falling short or plainly not having been obedient.
Those walking with Yeshua, as well are, being placed before lifes mirror, to reflect on their walk and possible connection to the temptations of the world, which might affect their eternal position. It’s a time to reflect on how mingling with those walking in the world may cause a stumble and how at this time, are being cautioned and called to depart from those ways and habits.
