ALL WHO FORSAKE ME SHALL BE CONSUMED! Posted 060920 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: ALL WHO FORSAKE ME SHALL BE CONSUMED. It is written in Isaiah 1.28: And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. I have nourished and brought up children and they have rebelled against Me. This sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters; they have forsaken Me, they have provoked Me, the Holy One of Israel, unto anger, they are gone away backward. The whole head is sick and the whole heart faint. From the sole fo the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores; they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire; your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers, as a besieged city. How is the faithful city become a harlot! It was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers, thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water. Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves; everyone loveth gifts and followeth after rewards. They judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
Except I had left unto you a very small remnant, ye should have been as Sodom and Gomorrah. Your oblations are vain, your incense is an abomination unto Me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. My soul hates your new moons and your appointed feasts, they are trouble unto Me; I am weary to bear them. When ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you; when ye make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood. I will ease Me of Mine adversaries, and avenge Me of Mine enemies; and I will turn My hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin. And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning; afterward thou shalt be called: The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
Wash you and make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before Mine eyes; cease to do evil; learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, let us reason together; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land; but if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword; for I have spoken it. Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water. And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them. I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? ALL WHO FORSAKE ME SHALL BE CONSUMED. Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
