“Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth,” Daniel 2:34, 35.

“The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days they shall be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His ancients gloriously,” Isaiah 24:20-23.

God does not ask you to die for Him,
But to live and to prepare to live!
All of life to prepare for Life!
To you He doth freely give!
The one who is in constant dread,
The one who is afraid to die;
Is the one who is not prepared to live
In the city of Gold so nigh!
The one who doeth the Master’s words,
The one who sings of His love_
Is the one who is not afraid of death
For he’s prepared to live with God!
