For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans
Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.
The LORD said:
Because the daughters of Zion are haughty
and walk with outstretched necks,
glancing wantonly with their eyes,
mincing along as they go,
tinkling with their feet,
therefore the Lord will strike with a scab
the heads of the daughters of Zion,
and the LORD will lay bare their secret parts.
In that day the Lord will take away the finery of the anklets, the headbands, and the crescents; the pendants, the bracelets, and the scarves; the headdresses, the armlets, the sashes, the perfume boxes, and the amulets; the signet rings and nose rings; the festal robes, the mantles, the cloaks, and the handbags; the mirrors, the linen garments, the turbans, and the veils.
Instead of perfume there will be rottenness;
and instead of a belt, a rope;
and instead of well-set hair, baldness;
and instead of a rich robe, a skirt of sackcloth;
and branding instead of beauty.
Your men shall fall by the sword
and your mighty men in battle.
And her gates shall lament and mourn;
empty, she shall sit on the ground.
It would be wise to know there is a part of God that is shared with us that alerts us to the knowledge of judgment. Not a judgment imposed by mankind upon one another, not a judgment similar to that of the Pharisee elevating one over another, but a judgment imposed by God Almighty; one more severely intense that is placed against His people for their pride and their rejection of Him, all that He is. In Christ we have forgiveness and with a that acceptance comes responsibility. Genuine believers respond to Him out of love and gratitude and there is no rebellion in them. Let’s be sure to be a part of the remnant saved from total destruction. Let us be a light in a dark world. Peace.
