I see what this world loves,
and it angers me,
maybe I'm wrong for that,
but this is who I am,
and for an even longer period of time,
my whole adult life,
to be exact,
I've sacrificed my beliefs,
out of fear that others
might get upset.
I was afraid of hurting
when they showed no concern
I remained lukewarm.
But those days are over, Father,
and if people get mad
I can't please everyone,
no one can.
Even you said:
"Do you suppose that I
came to give peace on earth?
I tell you not at all,
but rather division. (Luke 12:51)
I see singing stars and movie stars
leading the people astray
with promises of speaking to God
by placing a magic red charm on their wrist
and meditating on symbols
which represent different gods.
But I take comfort in this judgement:
"Woe to the women who sew
magic charms on their sleeves
and make veils for the heads of people
of every height to haunt souls!
Will you hunt the souls of My people
and keep yourselves alive?
And will you profane me among My people
for handfuls of barley
and for pieces of bread,
killing people who should not die
and keeping people alive
who should not live,
by your lying to My people
who listen to lies?"
Therefore thus says the Lord God:
"Behold, I am against your magic charms
by which you hunt souls there like birds.
I will tear them from your arms,
and let the souls go,
the souls you hunt like birds.
"I will also tear off your veils
and deliver My people out of your hand,
and they shall no longer
be as prey in your hand.
Then you shall know that I am the Lord.
Because with lies
you have made the heart of the righteous sad
whom I have not made sad;
and you have strengthened
the hand of the wicked,
so that he does not turn
from his wicked way to save his life.
"Therefore you shall no longer
envision futility nor practice divination;
for I will deliver My people out of your hand,
and you shall know that I am The Lord." ' "
Make it come to pass, Father,
I ask this in Jesus' name,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.
This judgment is from Ezekiel 13:18
