When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes. Luke 14:41-42
Ever had someone show up unexpectedly? We commonly say things like, “Well, if I had known you were coming, I would have...” The reason we say these types of things is because we were not expecting company.
The Jews of Jesus’ day were expecting a political Messiah, not a spiritual leader. Much like our day, we are looking for a political leader to help solve our economic problems. Therefore, the people of Jesus’ day missed a real visitation from God. They missed out on real deliverance, real salvation, and real peace. How can anyone miss the time of God’s visitation?
Evidently if we hold fast to false expectations of how God moves or should move, we can miss His visitation. Lets face it, none of us knows the Lord as well as we think we do. The result of missing God’s visitation is that real peace is now hidden from our eyes!
As we roll further down the path towards the end of days, it is imperative we get a clear picture of how the Lord moves and how to walk in His ways. Lay aside useless information that doesn’t benefit your walk with God. The good news is we can know the Lord and be a part of His return! Are you ready to meet Him this time around?
