Oh Lord, I pray that people will wake up to their sins. That people will no longer put off the day of their repentance. Surely, every person that is into idolatry will one day experience the wrath to come, come death. We cannot trust in anything or anybody else, but you, Lord, for salvation. There is only one Name under heaven that we can be saved, and it is Christ Jesus. So please help people that are living in a state of idolatry to wake up. I do not wish anyone else to die and open their eyes in the fiery depths of hell. This is so terrible just to imagine, so I know that experiencing hell first hand must be absolutely terrifying in every fashion of the word. This is the place that was prepared for the devil and his angels, but has been opened up to wicked people as well. It just kills me to think of all the people that are now in this dark place, where there is no water to quench their thirst. Lord, while people are alive now, help them know what their idols are. I am not just talking about carved idols and statues, which are absolutely wrong, but the idols people make for themselves outside of that. God, people do not realize that serving their smartphones, their TVs, gaming consoles, and other things, while only saying they believe in You. This is not true faith. Surely, if people are caught up in what they have accumulated because of money, it will be their downfall come death. Lord, awaken people like this. Help them know that giving their attention over to things that go against you is so wrong. Also, help them know that who they give their time to is their god or idol instead of You. What I wish is that people would understand the need to give You time instead of other things. This I pray that they may live in Your love and one day go to heaven. Every idol that is in a person’s life can be loosed from them, but they must be willing to give things up. A humble person, who wishes to live for You and not the world, is what is required. I love You, Lord. You are my greatest joy. Amen.
2 Kings 1:13-15 (KJV)
13 And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight.
14 Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight.
15 And the angel of the Lord said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king.
God’s wrath is upon the wicked. Only the humble, people who trust in God, will escape the quenching fire of hell come death.
