One thing is sure, the comfort of peace is much better than the harshness of war. God’s plan of redemption is to give humanity a reprieve from the chaos of the world. That reprieve comes according to what God’s Son Jesus Christ did for us on the Cross. In this scripture text today, Arabia found itself lodging in the forest to escape being traumatized by their enemies! During Arabia’s trauma, Tema brought them water and bread. Again, water and bread represents the Water and Bread of Life, which represents the nourishment given to our spirit and soul by Jesus Christ. War is demonic and of Satan because it kills and destroys humanity. God’s plan for humanity is for the redemption of our soul through the Spirit of Christ! Unless we accept reconciliation to God through the Spirit of Christ, we are just like Arabia in a forest! We need the Water of Life, we need the Bread of Life to feed our soul and spirit with compassion for the soul’s of humanity! Jesus says, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
The modern god of knowledge is an enemy to the soul and spirit of humanity! That false god shuts off the human spirit from the Spirit of God and shuts off the soul from the infilling of the Holy Spirit. There is no respect for the One True God as the Message of the Cross of Christ is seldom heard and the soul is desperately lacking the infilling of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. We need to be that person in the forest to bring a morsel of the Word of God and to bring a refreshing drink of the Spirit of Christ. The spirit of the anti-Christ is becoming more intense everyday as more and more people discover themselves in a forest full of hostility and hatred, where God’s name is cursed and no authority is respected except the authority of the god of knowledge. We need to be strong in the Spirit of Christ to remind others that Christ Jesus is alive and well, and we need to say words and do good deeds that reveal the compassion that God has for war-weary souls. Let us be the one who offers the invitation to others to come to Christ, to speak to those who are under a heavy burden and let them know that Christ Jesus will give them rest.
Please, believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is lord.
“The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall ye lodge, O ye travelling companies of Dedanim. The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they prevented with their bread him that fled. For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war. For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail: And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the Lord God of Israel hath spoken it.” Isaiah 21:13-17 King James Version (KJV)
“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
