Proverbs of a 36 yr old man

Get out. Get out of the shadow of judgment and step into the light of grace. While you were sitting in the gateway of your heart the Lord came to meet you. You said, "My Lord, come to my home to wash your feet, and be my guest for the night. You may then get up early in the morning and be on your way again.” But The Lord replied, "Oh no, I will spend the night out here in the city square of your life.” You fear judgment now because your life should have been moving towards pastures of Canaan but you drifted towards the lusts of the east. You have been pleading with the Lord because sin had compounded in certain areas in your life. And now He has shown up to show Himself strong. It is not safe for you though and your ashamed of the sin around you. You ask the Lord to come and eat with you here in this part of your life and to spend time with you. Over time, sin even came to the area where you told the Lord to dine with you. Sin has taken over your city, your home, your life. Just like The Lord had said, many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. Jesus, forgives though and closes the door of your heart to hold back evil. Holding your hand and telling you to follow Him out of this pretend life your are living. Walking through the filth and stench with you, He carries you out of the wickedness. Allowing Himself to be around the unclean to make you clean. Striking blindness to your enemies you are able to escape away from the fires of hell around you. Jesus also asked if there are any other relatives or friends taken by your sin here in the city? He says, "Get them out of this place, judgment is coming and mercy will follow. Your outcry to the LORD was so great that God sent his son to destroy the works of the devil in your life. Even when you hesitated and wanted to return to the vomit of your sinful life. Jesus grabbed you by the hand quickly enough as He rained fire and brimstone over the sin breached areas of your life. You got out of sins way and ran to the hills of righteousness from where your help comes from! Why should you look back and take pleasure in reminiscing about sin and evil. You will be swept away, destroyed by pride and selfishness. You were told to get out, get out of the shadow of judgment and step into the light of grace.
