“Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver?”
In God’s Word, there is more than one occasion when the LORD asks if His hand has grown short.
In other words, God was asking if He lacked the power to do what He had earlier declared He would do.
One of those times occurred in Numbers, when the LORD was talking to Moses.
“And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD’S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.”
When God asks such a question, He usually provides an an immediate answer. Therefore, God’s question is RHETORICAL, in nature.
HOWEVER, a great many–during the times in which we now live–believe that God is a FICTION; a FIGMENT of an over-active imagination. Because a great many have NO experiences with God, they believe what they are told: that God does NOT exist; that God was an invention of PRIMITIVE man, useful for primitive times,
BUT not so useful for present times when man has grown so much more clever and so much more intelligent; when man has SO MUCH MORE information at his fingertips.
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”–Daniel 12:4
One reason for the end times is to reteach the hard lesson that the Creator lives–and will govern His Creation as He see fit.
And NOT as His Creation wishes it to be.
In other words: a great many believe that God–if He even exists at all–NOW has shortened hands.
God has stated more than once–in His Word–that His Word will accomplish what He stated it will accomplish.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
–Isaiah 55: 8-11
“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:…yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
To the many bound with Satan’s invisible chains of deception, the words of the Bible are just that: so many words.
Blah, blah, blah.
Yada, yada, yada.
Hogwash, hokum and hooey.
One BIG reason for the end times is to demonstrate TO MAN who is the boss.
And, it is NOT man.
It is NOT Satan.
It is NOT familiar spirits.
Along the way, a great many–after they have uttered what will, no doubt, be the most popular reaction to the events of the last days (“It IS all real!”)–will finally understand that God’s hand has NOT grown shorter during this time.
“Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”
DOES the reader believe that God was something thought up by primitive man who nothing else better to do?
HAS the reader’s life changed, IN ANY WAY, for the better or for the worse?
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.”
