Sin Hurts God’s Heart
The Cause of Coming Judgment: Idolatry
In Ezekiel chapter six, God speaks to the judgment of Israel and tells the prophets to prophesy against them. He then says that He will destroy their high places so that their alters will become desolate and their incense alters will be smashed; and He says He will make their slain fall in front of their idols. “In all your dwellings, cities will become desolate, that your alters may become waste and desolate…..” God is a jealous God and the Idols and false worship of other god’s is forbidden and brings judgment upon a nation. Idols are anything someone worships rather than God. It could be money, sex, sports, or the love of the world and the things that are temporal and passing away and forgetting God.
God however, left a remnant, those who escaped the sword among the nations, when they were scattered among the countries. In verse nine God makes an astonishing statement:”….how I have been hurt by their adulterous hearts which have turned away from me, and by their eyes which played the harlot after their idols: and they will loathe themselves in their own sight for the evils which they have committed, for all their abomination. Then they will know that I am the Lord; I have not said in vain that I would inflict this disaster on them.” Then in verse 12 God says “He who is far off will die by the plague, and he who is near will fall by the sword, and he who remains and is besieged will die by the famine. Thus shall I spend My wrath on them.
Chapter seven goes on in verse five “Thus says the Lord God, A disaster, unique disaster, behold it is coming! Violence has grown into a rod of wickedness. None of them will remain, none of their people, none of their wealth, nor anything eminent among them. “They shall fling their silver into the streets and their gold shall become an abhorrent thing; their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord. Disaster will come upon disaster and rumor will be added upon rumor….According to their conduct I will deal with them, and by their judgments I shall judge them. And they shall know that I am the Lord.”
There is coming a time very soon when silver and gold will be worthless, when food will be the most valued commodity and survival will depend on whether people stocked food for the coming end of the age or whether they will take the mark of the beast to eat and lose their souls forever. Ezekiel six and seven are for the all the nations in today’s timeline warning of the coming judgments. Because of their idols and turning away from the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, judgment is coming. Sin fills the land of all nations in disgusting examples of human depravity and wickedness. Sin hurts the heart of God but because He is Holy and Pure and Righteous, He will deliver all the judgments He foretold of and prophesied. Jesus is coming back again, but this time as a Judge, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. His anger is at the nations, at their leaders and at the humans who love to sin.
What is amazing to me is God swore He would not be angry with you or me ever again. Why? Because all the wrath of God was put on Y’shua Jesus on the cross and our sins are covered. God the Father loves us with an everlasting love because of His Son Y’shua Jesus and by simply believing with our hearts and confessing with our mouth that Jesus is Lord, the Holy Spirit comes into our spirit and resides with us forever and seals us for the day of redemption (Eph 4:30) Perilous times have begun already and the worst is yet to come, but knowing our life is Hidden with Christ for all eternity, what can man do to us? The trying of our faith is more precious than gold and whoever is faithful to the end, not loving their life, but willing to lose it for Christ will be saved.
Remember unique disasters are coming, the Lord says, but to us, they are only a reminder of His soon coming return and His warning to all men and women that He wishes that no one would be lost, but turn and be saved…I believe that disaster is coming to the west coast of America very soon. I believe that earthquakes will rumble across America, stronger and in places where they have never been. I believe the coming winter will be killing cold for some parts of the country. I believe floods and water will wreck havoc on cities and lands. I believe riots will be breaking out in major cities. I believe the pumped up economy will crash in the near future and Europe’s economy will precede it. I believe food prices will soon skyrocket along with gas prices and famine will hit many. I believe the Islamic Muslim nations will unite and come against Israel and be destroyed by the hand of God who watches over Jerusalem. I believe Islamic radicals will bring terror across America in a coordinated effort and timeframe. I believe many who have been lukewarm or have never known Y’shua Jesus will see the light finally and turn and be saved. I believe the greatest outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit with signs and wonders will soon sweep the land and the world, right in the mist of horrible times, and millions will be saved and healed and prosper even in the worst of times. The end of the age is upon us and all the signs of the end that Y’shua Jesus spoke of the Matthew 24 and the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel and John the revelator foretold about are beginning and shortly will be upon us. “But you will not be deceived, that the day will overtake you, “ The signs are all around us, look and seek the salvation of the Lord………
