weep and moan you wicked cities

God drives his plowshare through cities, and they are upheaved like furrows in the field. “Behold,” says Isaiah, “the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance; behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing.… All nations before Him are as nothing; and they are counted to Him less than nothing, and vanity.”

Think of this, if you are a student of history, all the great cities of the world that have once existed are gone. Cities that would put our modern cities to shame. The queen of Babylon had over two million men build her city.

Ephesus in Paul’s day had buildings bigger than the white house.

All that man can boast of God can destroy, but Heaven that eternal city that waits for all believers will never grow old, never tarnish, I guess because I’m older I think of it more, death is the doorway to eternity.

A city where our Savior lives and greets us, there will be no break in our conscious thought when we cross over (sorry I know I said I hate that term, but it fits so well).

It should be one of our chief thoughts, we are pilgrims, sojourners, aliens, this is not our home, hopefully you’re not to comfortable here because like the cities of old, earth is going to fade away.

God bless
