‘Be Still And Know That I’m God’

by Pastor Sammy Haynes

Psalms 46: 6. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. 7. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. 8. Come and see what the LORD has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. 9. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shield with fire. 10. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” 11. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

If we were to look around today, we will see that sin is running rampant all over the Earth. Nations are trembling and awaiting judgment by Almighty God for rejecting the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, who by the way is Jesus the lamb slain before the creation of the world. With attacks on the very core of the Word of God, hatred the source behind the violence in this world has made its stand against all that is good and has caused the heart of many to wax cold. Even this great Nation, who once could stand proud and proclaim that its beginnings were orchestrated and ordained by God, is now a Nation that it’s leaders have become politically correct turning their backs on the very foundations of truth, which is the Holy Word of God.
In the Christian community there is confusion and chaos, and the Bible tells us in Galatians 1: 6. I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel- 7. Which is really no gospel at all? Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9. As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!
The gospel preached today is that anything goes, no matter what if you feel good doing it do it! Some have even stated that everything is acceptable to God and that there are many roads leads God and to Heaven. I can only tell you what Jesus said, John 14:6. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Put down the books of witchcraft, reading tarot cards looking for answers in all the wrong places and look to Jesus the Author and finisher of our faith. Jesus is the answer, and if you pick up the Word of God and ask Jesus to come into your life he will come. Pray this prayer: Jesus, forgive me for all I have done in my life. I believe you are the Son of God, and You were born of a virgin. I believe You died on a cross, and for three days and three nights you lay in a borrowed grave. And on the third day You rose from the dead triumphing of death, hell and the grave. Come into my life, in Jesus Name! Amen! After you have prayed this prayer be still and know that He is God, and he will be exalted no matter what’s happening in the World, for he is Mighty to save. Find a good church to attend; it will help you grow in Christ.
