“The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.”
Many are the promises contained in the Word of God, of PROTECTION for those who put their trust in the LORD.
Several of these promises liken the LORD’s protection to a “strong tower.”
“For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.”
“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”
“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”
During the utter chaos and destruction of the last days, ANY place of refuge–a strong tower, if you will–will be in short supply AND in great demand.
THEREFORE, those who trust in the LORD have a place of refuge which He alone can offer.
The refuge may offer a respite from calamity for a few days, a few months or a few minutes: it makes little difference to one who is trying to catch his breath from all of the destruction and judgment which will be going on at the time.
Who doesn’t need a strong tower to run into during times of trouble?
Just one more benefit to being one of the FEW who trust God and His Son, Jesus Christ, during the last days.
HOWEVER, it should be pointed out that it matters not how strong the tower may be IF one chooses NOT to run to it in times of trouble.
“O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.”
DOES the reader understand how it is that the LORD is called a “strong tower“?
DOES the reader believe this wholeheartedly?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
