Topic: Repent And Be Saved [08/01/2017]
Seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he humbleth himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days: but in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house. 1 Kings 21:29 Read: Gen 18:23-32
When you punish a child that did something wrong but admit it and repent of his/her wrongdoing, that will amount to wickedness. God is a righteous God and everyone that does righteousness pleases Him and becomes His favorite. God cannot destroy the righteous with the wicked, He will save the righteous and also save the wicked that repents of his sin because He is not interested in the death of sinners. Sinners dont give Him joy but cause Him sorrow. When the cry of the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah got to God in heaven, He Himself visited to find out the truth. Abraham tried to save the cities from destruction through intercession, but their was no ten righteous men in the cities that would have caused God to show mercy on them. Lots family were not up to five let alone ten. They were destroyed without mercy.
On the other hand, when God Almighty sent a prophet to inform Ahab of the calamity He would bring upon him, Ahab repented and God immediately told the prophet that because Ahab has repented, He will no longer bring evil upon him but will pour it upon his children. It doesn't matter what grievous sin you've committed, you can save yourself by repenting.
* Father, I admit all my wrongdoings and repent of them, forgive and save my soul from destruction in Jesus name
