Aloud voice crying out in the streets looking for someone to hear what the Lord has to say, though after the He has saved them and restored their households they blew their trumpets declaring and calling out a war against Him; the Lord looked but there was no good men there was not one righteous intercessor..instead all has grabbed hold to sin and rejected Him and turned their back to Him, intentionally sabotaging His good deeds and belittling His identity’s fruits in their lives..
Human-beings by nature we gravitate toward peoples who we believe enough in them to go to war with us and they believe enough in us to go to war with them.
Imagine what God our Father might say —After He prepared us for His army by many ways, and conditions, through various tribulations, calamities, setbacks and extreme hardships- to come out of it all restored, pure and our hearts are white as snow, feeling much joyful, our trust and faith much stronger. He sees what is in our hearts and He knows our intentions..
What just might He say?
If we deny Him, His Love, grace and mercy, if we become ungrounded, rooted instead in this life over His glory, forgetting His long history of long list of the lifetime Blessings that He has imparted into our lives? And not only so but more so ignoring and rejecting Him as our only God, our Father and our only King.
As a parent dealing with my children’s ups and downs I can only feel what He feels and it can be joyful and rewarding or stressful, crushing to my soul, wildly painful and radically miserable..
God did not send Moses to Pharaoh to ask him saying “Let my people go” so they can go back to the promised land, no God asked Moses to bring them out of Egypt to the wilderness so He can meet them as their only One true living God and savor and prepare them for war and transform them to be holy people complete in Him before they go into the Holy land. God always looking for ways to help us be prepared and ready for war and be complete in him to be in his image pointing people back Him to be saved before the end of times. God wants us to be like Him and in His image in our acts whenever we encounter peoples and look at them through the eyes of love, redemption and grace, Not judgment, condemnation and disgrace..
Think about this for a second, I assure you it will transform your life, to live it in a way that you will see yourself and your fellowship with God our Father much deeper, much closer, it will offer the path to a greater bond which no one or anything can break out for eternity..
27 who say to a tree, ‘You are my father,’
and to a stone, ‘You gave me birth.’
For they have turned their back to me,
and not their face.
But in the time of their trouble they say,
‘Arise and save us!’
28 But where are your gods
that you made for yourself?
Let them arise, if they can save you,
in your time of trouble;
for as many as your cities
are your gods, O Judah.
My anguish, my anguish! I writhe in pain!
Oh the walls of my heart!
My heart is beating wildly;
I cannot keep silent,
for I hear the sound of the trumpet,
the alarm of war.
20 Crash follows hard on crash;
the whole land is laid waste.
Suddenly my tents are laid waste,
my curtains in a moment.
21 How long must I see the standard
and hear the sound of the trumpet?
22 “For my people are foolish;
they know me not;
they are stupid children;
they have no understanding.
They are ‘wise’—in doing evil!
But how to do good they know not.”
-but what will you do when the end comes?
