God the Almighty One
1. God the almighty One! wisely ordaining Judgments unsearchable, famine and sword; Over the tumult of war Thou art reigning:
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord! Amen.
2. God the all merciful! earth hath forsaken Thy ways of blessedness, slighted Thy Word; Bid not Thy wrath in its terrors awaken:
3. God the all righteous One! man hath defied Thee; Yet to eternity standeth Thy Word; Falsehood and wrong shall not tarry beside Thee:
Give us peace in our time, O Lord! Amen.

With all that’s goin’ on in the world you would think that many people would get the idea that there is God; not a god, as if one of many; but GOD. As one who created all that is, and sustains all that is. GOD did not just create the created order then leave it for His crowning achievement to oversee, and rule. He came down during a time in history, and gave His life for us.
With all that’s goin’ on in the world you would think that people would open their eyes about their own righteousness; that it just doesn’t exist. Even the most immoral people can have a good streak in them occasionally, but that sure doesn’t make them righteous. Our good deeds won’t; maybe even cannot out weigh the bad or evil we do; no matter if we do more good than bad. With God righteousness, goodness, doing right just doesn’t work that way.
Righteous is what God says is righteous; and that is not us. His Son Jesus is Righteous, and He died for our unrighteousness. He is the only Mediator between God, His Father, and humanity. Without Him we would all perish.
With all that’s goin’ on in the world you would think that there would be a lot of repentance going on, and people calling on the name of Jesus Christ; for He is the Lord of all.
It’s time for repentance and faith; even here on the banks of Flat Creek.
