WHAT CAN I DO TO SOFTEN THE IRON EARTH AND THE BRASS HEAVENS?

1. IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM

2. ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEM

AND acknowledge GOD AS THE SOLUTION.

3. CONFESS.

4. REPENT.

5. CORRECT AND CHANGE.

We have a PROMISE.

Why do the heavens appear as brass and the earth as iron?

I want to ponder brass heavens, and an iron earth.

Again, our text will be:

Deut.28:23, And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth under thee shall be iron.

Our conclusion will be drawn from Psalms 107:15 Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! 16. For He hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

#1. WE HAVE A PROMISE.

God promised us: John 14:13. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14. If you shall ask anything in my Name, I will do it.

God has a promise, it is extended unto us.

We should be very bold and reach out and share God’s promises with others. We must learn how to be open to God and His Word.

Psalms 107:20, HE SENT HIS WORD, AND HEALEDED AND DELIVERED FROM THEIR DESTRUCTIONS.

Notice there is a "S" on destruction, it is plural.

All the enemy’s designs must have a way of escape, else he cannot use them.

Will we receive the promise?

Will we receive the Word?
