Do not take joy in human suffering but rejoice that the hour is near…

Isaiah 24:5-6 The earth is polluted because of its inhabitants, who have transgressed laws, violated statutes, broken the ancient covenant. Therefore a curse devours the earth, and its inhabitants pay for their guilt; therefore they who dwell on earth turn pale, and few men are left.

“My child, have no fear of evil news. All this must take place before the day of the Lord. It has been decreed, so be joyful when you see all sorts of calamities. Do not take joy in human suffering but rejoice that the hour is near. I say it again, ‘Rejoice!'”

Lord Jesus, come and do not delay. Have mercy on us all and come Lord Jesus to our hearts and homes. Come to rule the world with justice and the peoples with fairness. Amen.
