God has spoken over & over again through his Prophets and he has followed through on every single word! So why do we think God will not do as he says,we seem to think that because of his grace we can get by with doing wrong.God has said his judgement would first start in the Church(his people in Christ) like I mention in one other post,it's us that's causing trouble.When Ahab was chasing Elisha he claimed Elisha was a trouble maker,not looking at himself but pointing his finger at someone else.Much like today you can blame others all you want but God is aware of all that's in your heart and it's not by any means pleasing to God. How can you say you love God and cannot stand someone that's different from you in race and religion,why blame others religion for problems we've caused ourselves. You can look at others and hate them steaming with angry at the thought of them,where is the Love of God. Jeremiah,Daniel and many others saw that God Loved everybody the same and we're to be no different,we cannot get by calling evil good and if what you do is not pleasing to God it's considered evil.Isaiah also cried out to God's people concerning things to come and we know this,I mean we are born again,we know what God desires and we also know that God will do as he pleases! God always warned his people before tragedy and today instead of being truthful about God's wrath we're trying to cover it up,but it want work because God is not pleased with our thoughts and ways!!! In God's sight we are all the same sinners that are loved and in need of a Saviour,there is "not one person" alive who is better than another,even if you do think you are. I see hurting and oppressed people in need of their Saviour but they are being pushed aside because of your agenda,things of this world has clouded your mind and now you're walking in dangerous territory!! God is not pleased,God is not pleased and his judgement will come,for God has said vengeance is mind I will repay. We are also reminded of Isaiah 45:15 Truly, O God of Israel,our Saviour,you work in strange and mysterious ways. When we chose to turn away from God,he will turn away from us,when we chose to overlook what's "important to God: Then trouble stands at the door. It time for the Church to "Repent".
Love in Christ Pat
