441 ROD OF IRON.

Revelation 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

God is not going to be so nice the next time around.

God’s plan for mankind is to make us like Him; love, but that doesn’t mean being nice to every whim and wish that comes down the pike.

So far, God has been very kind to mankind and has tried to be patient, knowing we are just weak human flesh.

Psalms 78:38 But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.

Psalms 78:39 For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.

The first man, Adam, sinned and brought sin heritage upon himself AND his descendants, which means all the human race from Adam to eternity. We were born into this sin nature like a bear is born a bear, a snake is born a snake, or a fish is born a fish.

The second Adam, Jesus Christ God’s son, paid the price for our sin nature so we could escape the grip of sin on our heart and become like Him.

 Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

 It only took mankind 1656 years to become so wicked that only 8 souls were saved from the waters of Noah’s flood and Adam, the first man, who had a living, breathing, talking, and walking relationship with God, was alive for over half of those years; 930 years.

There were spurts of righteous men along the way, like Abraham, Israel, Moses, Joseph, Samuel, Daniel, etc., but most of humanity fell back into sin quickly.

Sin is not your physical actions but a disobedient and rebellious spirit (heart) before God and His righteousness. The actions are just the outward evidence of our wicked heart.

It took mankind approximately 2500 years to become almost totally wicked again when God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to be born of a virgin, fathered by the Holy Spirit, into the world. He was born to die on a Roman cross in payment for the sins of the world; your rebellious hearts and mine.

With the arrival of Jesus and the establishment of His church, there was a new, God revealing, show of God’s nature of love. It has taken us over 2000 years to dilute this nature down to an acceptable level for all mankind to think they are alright just the way they are without Jesus Christ and His gift of salvation.

So far, God has been very kind, and patient with our disobedience, BUT Jesus is coming back to an again failing, wicked world for the next phase. He is coming back to physically rule and reign as God’s king on this earth.

There will still be mercy and grace but it will be tempered with a rod of iron. Jesus will put up with very little foolishness from anyone.

Any Nation not giving God honour by worshiping His son, Jesus, will receive no rain for their crops and will experience famine.

Zechariah 14:17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

People will live long lives but Jesus will still judge in righteousness.

Isaiah 65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

Even with Jesus ruling over the world, satan will easily fool people into rebelling against Him in only one, short season.

Revelation 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

Revelation 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

Even after all that, mankind still rebels against God and His king and will bring God’s final judgement on all humanity.

Accept Jesus’ lordship and submit to His rod of iron now. Like a loving father that has to discipline His children are the punishments of God on His own.

Learn to submit early before Jesus comes back and you HAVE TO SUBMIT to His rod of iron.

Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
