4 Though they have officials in Zoan
5 everyone will be put to shame
8 Go now, write it on a tablet for them,
9 These are rebellious people, deceitful children, children unwilling to listen to the LORD's instruction.
10 They say to the seers,
11 Leave this way,
12 Therefore, this is what the Holy One of Israel says:
13 this sin will become for you
16 You said, 'No, we will flee on horses.'
17 A thousand will flee
18 Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you;
28 His breath is like a rushing torrent,
He places in the jaws of the peoples
God is loving and compassionate.
But He will not be mocked.
Our God is also a consuming Fire!
Any nation that defiles His ways will be judged.
I will win no awards for this post.
Good thing this is an award-free blog. ;-)
Most people will leave no comment here.
I pray you are not most people.
We close our ears to things like this.
We want to know only a loving God, not one who is angered by sin.
Some will label me a 'radical' or 'controversial ' for speaking the truth because it is harsh. Do they think I like writing this? These are not my words - they are God's Word! I believe the whole counsel of the Word of God. I can't pick and choose to throw out the parts that make me queasy!
His Word stands firm and true.
Jesus was a radical. Label me what you will. I follow Him.
His Name along brings controversy.
