No Balm in Gilead by Jacob Prasch


“Wail, for the day of the Lord is near! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore, all hands will fall limp, and every human heart will melt. They will be terrified, Pains and anguish will take hold of them; They will writhe like a woman in labor, They will look at one another in astonishment, Their faces aflame. Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, Cruel, with fury and burning anger, To make the land a desolation; And He will exterminate its sinners from it. For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash their light; The sun will be dark when it rises and the moon will not shed its light. So, I will punish the world for its evil And the wicked for their wrongdoing; I will also put an end to the audacity of the proud And humiliate the arrogance of the tyrants. I will make mortal man scarcer than pure gold And mankind than the gold of Ophir. Therefore, I will make the heavens tremble, And the earth will be shaken from its place At the fury of the Lord of armies In the day of His burning anger. And it will be that, like a hunted gazelle, Or like sheep with no one to gather them, Each of them will turn to his own people, And each of them will flee to his own land. Anyone who is found will be thrust through, And anyone who is captured will fall by the sword”. Isaiah 13: 6 – 16

Jeremiah asked: “IS THERE NO BALM IN GILEAD”?

No, once the 7th Seal is broken there will no longer be any cure. God’s Wrath is to be poured out on the nations and unbelieving Israel will be plunged into the ‘Time of Jacob’s Trouble’. Yet even now there is an ever-shortening time for the unregenerate, and for professing Christians in the Apostate Church, to be saved from this ‘Wicked and Perverse Generation’. We are not alarmists, nor scaremongering sensationalists or self-proclaimed prophets, but rather biblical realists. This present time is fundamentally different from other times in history when Christians thought it to be the Last Days. Time is evaporating and events are transpiring at a pace that is already becoming exponential.
