Why has God done this? When people or a nation walks away from God Almighty they will reap what they sow.
8 “People from many nations will pass by this city and will ask one another, ‘Why has the LORD done such a thing to this great city?’ 9 And the answer will be: ‘Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God and have worshiped and served other gods.’”
Do what is right and just. Rescue the one who’s being robbed. Do no wrong or violence to alien, widow, and orphan. Do not shed innocent blood. Carry out these commands and you will live and be blessed by the Lord God.
3 This is what the LORD says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of the oppressor the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place. 4 For if you are careful to carry out these commands, then kings who sit on David’s throne will come through the gates of this palace, riding in chariots and on horses, accompanied by their officials and their people. 5 But if you do not obey these commands, declares the LORD, I swear by myself that this palace will become a ruin.’”
The Lord God Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth, is the one true God. There is none other. He rules and reigns over all things.
15 “He made the earth by His power;
He founded the world by His wisdom
and stretched out the heavens by His understanding.
16 When He thunders, the waters in the heavens roar;
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth.
He sends lightning with the rain
and brings out the wind from His storehouses.
17 “Everyone is senseless and without knowledge;
every goldsmith is shamed by his idols.
The images he makes are a fraud;
they have no breath in them.
18 They are worthless, the objects of mockery;
when their judgment comes, they will perish.
19 He who is the Portion of Jacob is not like these,
for He is the Maker of all things,
including the people of His inheritance—
the LORD Almighty is His Name.
Wake up! God is stable; none changing. What happened in ancient times to Israel is a warning for all nations and leaders. If a nation or leader of a nation rejects the Lord God of Israel they were warned. So God’s Word stands true. They are responsible for their own actions and can’t blame anyone for what happens next.
America wake up! Wake up o nations of the earth. Repent! Turn from your evil ways and turn to the one true God who is all , in all, through all, and above all. Blessed be His Name – the Name Jesus Messiah
The truth of the matter is, a matter of fact. God throughout the entire Bible says over and over and over again “Keep the Sabbath Day holy!” Why? I ask, “Why do we ignore this fourth Commandment?” It is one of the Great 10 Commandments. If one says, “Well, that was then and this is now. Therefore, it is irrelevant.” To this I say: If one of the moral Commandments is not valid then that makes all the rest the same. So, murder, lying, stealing, and adultery is okay to do. How absurd! God says over and over that every action has a consequence. Obey and be blessed. Disobey and blessing is removed.
What does this mean for us today? It means as God stated in Exodus 20:8-11. Do no work; instead relax, go to church, spend time with God, pray, read the Bible. Enjoy your day with family and friends. Why do we not want to do this? God was very clear about the consequences of our actions. Which do you prefer – be blessed or lose out on the blessings of the day.
Hope and healing can be found only in the Lord God Almighty.
13 LORD, You are the hope of Israel;
all who forsake You will be put to shame.
Those who turn away from You will be written in the dust
because they have forsaken the LORD,
the spring of living water.
14 Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed;
save me and I will be saved,
for You are the One I praise.
There are two types of people:
1. Those who love God Almighty, believe Him, and follow Him.
2. Those who do what is right in their own eyes; who trusts not in the LORD, but in man.
Which one are you?
