“Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor…”
(JEREMIAH 22:3, 4).

DCLM Daily Manna Monday, June 20 2022 OUTLINE

Leaders of nations and great men among their citizens often spend long periods wondering and working at how best to rebuild their countries and improve the wellbeing of their people. Most times, they are unsuccessful; and when it works at all, it is only for a brief period before the rot sets in, and the country gets into distress. The corruption and disobedience ultimately court divine displeasure and judgment.

God alone has the blueprint for sustained peace, progress, development and prosperity of nations. From the text, He told the king of Judah to be just, execute judgment in righteousness, protect the weak among his subjects, treat strangers with love, care and respect, and defend the orphans and widows. He would not allow violence and bloodshed to reign in the land. If the king upheld these directives, his nation would prosper, his reign would be peaceful and his successors would ascend the throne in orderly manner and for long time to come. But if he rejected the command of God, the nation shall be invaded and ravaged, the cities shall not be inhabited, the land would be burnt down and turned into a desert. Passers-by would be shocked at the extent of the devastation.

To escape God’s judgment, sinners must repent, confess and forsake all their sins, and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. God desires that all men should obey His entreaties. Those who reject it today will face His judgment at the end of life.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Repentance opens the door of escape from God’s anger.
