One more warning
Good Morning all. Today I have just one more scripture and then we will decipher these last two scriptures together. We have to look back to see where we are headed. The things of the old were done so we would learn and not repeat them. But I can see that we are repeating them again. Today I am going to Micah 3. "Listen you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel. Should you not embrace justice, you who hate good and love evil; who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones; who eat my people's flesh, strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces; who chop them up like meat for the pan, like flesh for he pot? Then they will cry out to the Lord, but he will not answer them. At that time he will hide his face from them because of the evil they have done. This is what the Lord says, As for the prophets who lead my people astray, they proclaim peace if they have something to eat, but prepare to wage war against anyone who refuses to feed them. Therefore night will come over you, without visions, and darkness, without divination. The sun will set for the prophets, and the day will go dark for them. The seers will be ashamed and the diviners disgraced. They will cover their faces because there is no answer from God. But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might to declare to Jacob his transgression, to Israel his sin. Hear this, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right; who build Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with wickedness. Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they look for the Lord's support and say, Is not the Lord among us? No disaster will come upon us. Therefore because of you Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets. Has God turned his face from us because of our sin? Better yet, we HAVE turned from God. We no longer follow what he commands of us. We do our own thing. We go our own way. We allow evil to overshadow good. We sit back and let it happen. And we I say we, I mean those who call themselves Christians. It is time we stop being "Christians" and being Christ followers. We need to walk in his footsteps and stop following man. Have a blessed day! RISE UP!
