We call them judgements. I call them Devine prophecies, what will happen because of this or that. God knows. And He wants us to know too. He told Israel; they would not listen. Just like today. Men don’t listen. Maybe an example of God cursing those who won’t, will cause someone to reconsider. You are welcome to share.
“He has told you, mortal one, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, to love (mercy) kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God?
The voice of the Lord will call to the city—
And it is sound wisdom to fear Your name:
‘Hear, you tribe. Who has designated its time?
Is there still a person in the wicked house,
Along with treasures of wickedness,
And a short measure that is cursed?
Can I justify dishonest balances,
And a bag of fraudulent weights?
For the rich people of the city are full of violence,
Her residents speak lies,
And their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
So also I will make you sick, striking you down,
Making you desolate because of your sins.
You will eat, but you will not be satisfied,
And your filth will be in your midst.
You will try to remove valuables for safekeeping,
But you will not save it all,
And what you do save I will turn over to the sword.
You will sow but you will not harvest.
You will tread the olive press but will not anoint yourself with oil;
And tread out sweet wine, but you will not drink any wine.
The statutes of Omri
And every work of the house of Ahab are maintained,
And you walk by their plans.
Therefore I will give you up for destruction,
And your inhabitants for derision,
And you will suffer the taunting of My people.” (Micah 6: 9-16 NASB)
They had their gods, and their god’s ways enslaved them. Same thing today. How many do you think have heard the name above all names, Jesus? Most have turned away, not wanting to be exposed by truth. God’s children know what their Father requires of them. Love! His children are given His Holy Spirit. Instead of being cursed and destroyed we are experiencing more of His life every day. How can this happen? Repent and believe the gospel of salvation.
A narrow path isn’t necessarily a straight one. What does your path look like? Not talking about snow.
