SELAH Daily Devotions!
“The Message from God-of-the-Angel-Armies, Israel’s GOD; “Go ahead! Put your burnt offering with all of your other sacrifical offerings and make a good meal for yourselves. I sure don’t want them! When I delivered your ancestors out of Egypt, I never said anyting to them about wanting burnt offerings and sacrifices as such.
BUT I did say this, commanded this: “OBEY ME. DO WHAT I SAY AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD AND YOU WILL BE MY PEOPLE. LIVE THE WAY I TELL YOU. DO WHAT I COMMAND SO THAT YOUR LIVES WILL GO WELL.”
“’BUT do you think they listened? Not a word of it. They did just what they wanted to do, indulged any and every evil whim and got worse day by day.
From the time your ancestors left the land of Egypt until now, I’ve supplied a steady stream of my servants the prophets, but do you think the people listened? Not once! Stubborn as mules and worse than their ancestors!’
“TELL THEM ALL THIS, BUT DON’T EXPECT THEM TO LISTEN! Call out to them, BUT DON’T EXPECT AN ANSWER! Tell them, ‘YOU ARE THE NATION THAT WOULDN’T OBEY GOD, THAT REFUSED ALL DISPLINE. TRUTH HAS DISAPPEARED. THERE’S NOT A TRACE OF IT LEFT IN YOUR MOUTHS! Jeremiah 7:21-28 THE MESSAGE
We’ve heard the news, and we’re as limp as wet dishrags. We’re paralyzed with fear. Terror has a death grip on our throats.
Don’t dare go outdoors! Don’t leave the house! ….Death is on the prowl. Danger everywhere!
“Dear Daughter Zion: Dress in black. Blacken your face with ashes. Weep most bitterly, as for an only child. The countdown has begun…six, five, four, three…
THE TERROR IS ON US!” Jeremiah 8: 24-25-26 THE MESSAGE
…BUT SOME SAY, ‘THIS DOESN’T CONCERN US…WE’RE AMERICA, huh? #UUUUMMMMM…VERY SUPERSTITIOUS!
“Have a WONDER-FILLED day?”
