Witness Him Now
I have to speak what I am hearing. It is not possible to remain silent now.
"To whom can I give warning? Who will listen when I speak?
Their ears are closed, and they cannot hear. They scorn the Word of the LORD. They don't want to listen at all. So now I am filled with the LORD's fury. Yes, I am tired of holding it in!"
"I will pour out My fury on children playing in the streets and on gatherings of young men, on husbands and wives and on those who are old and gray. Their homes will be turned over to their enemies, as will their fields and their wives. For I will raise My powerful fist against the people of this land," says the LORD. "From the least to the greatest, their lives are ruled by greed. From prophets to priests, they are all frauds. They offer superficial treatments for My people's mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their disgusting actions? Not at all - they don't even know how to blush! Therefore, they will lie among the slaughtered. They will be brought down when I punish them," says the LORD.
This is what the LORD says: "Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, 'No, that's not the road we want!' I posted watchmen over you who said, "Listen for.the sound of the alarm.' But you replied, 'No! We won't pay attention!' Therefore, listen to this, all you nations. Take note of My people's situation. Listen, all the earth! I will bring disaster on My people. It is the fruit of their own schemes, because they refuse to listen to Me. They have rejected My Word...
Therefore, this is what the LORD says: "I will put obstacles in My people's path. Fathers and sons will both fall over them. Neighbors and friends will die together." (Jeremiah 6:10-21)
LORD, I am asking that You would give us all eyes to see and ears to hear and a heart to understand what You are saying. Let a godly fear enter the hearts of Your people. Let us ask for the old, godly way, and let us walk in it. Forgive us, LORD, for being ruled by greed. We are sorry. Forgive us for not listening to You. We are sorry. Change our hearts. Take out this heart of stone and put in a heart of flesh. Sprinkle us with clean water so that we can be clean. Tear down our idols and pour Your Spirit into us. Send light and truth and mercy and grace. Send Your unfailing love. Send Your kindness that leads us to repentance. You have to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. I am asking this in the Mighty Name of Jesus! AMEN
The scripture says, "May you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
