DOUBLE FOR TROUBLE
“As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit where no water is. Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee.” Zechariah 9:11-12
The prisoners in the “…pit where no water is…” refers to those chained down in hades; those doomed for destruction through physical annihilation and spiritual separation. The good news is that the blood of Jesus has answered the question.
There is rescue for the captive and reward of double honor for all the troubles gone through. We have an Advocate that is not just moved by the feeling of our infirmities but so compassionate to even render double for our troubles. However, the challenge to everyone is the commandment to turn to the strong hold to receive help in time of need.
Don’t stay helpless in your situation; turn to the strong hold. Help is readily waiting for you!
Please take note of this; “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” – Romans 3:23
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ”- Romans 6:23
If you don’t have Jesus Christ in your life yet; you are not safe. Call on Him today; He will not turn His back on you.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Romans 10:13
