We have to remember that our great God is outside of time so that which was written 100 yrs BC he knew would be relevant on the sharp edge & applicable to our day.. He knew BC that we would have the NAR & the “River” the Lakeland Outpouring Bethel Redding & everything else. Outside of time He has written & said this to us:
Psalm 12 (HCSB)
Help, Lord, for no faithful one remains;
the loyal have disappeared from the human race.
They lie to one another;
they speak with flattering lips and deceptive hearts.
May the Lord cut off all flattering lips
and the tongue that speaks boastfully.
They say, “Through our tongues we have power;
our lips are our own—who can be our master?”
“Because of the oppression of the afflicted
and the groaning of the poor,
I will now rise up,” says the Lord.
“I will put the one who longs for it in a safe place.”
The words of the Lord are pure words,
like silver refined in an earthen furnace,
purified seven times.
You, Lord, will guard us;
You will protect us from this generation forever.
The wicked wander everywhere,
and what is worthless is exalted by the human race.
