God warns Israel
God makes His plans and purposes very clear so that everyone has the opportunity to repent and put their trust and faith in Him. He is especially concerned about Jerusalem as the prophets continually warn her inhabitants.
“I will stretch out My hand against Judah,
And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place,
The names of the idolatrous priests with the pagan priests—
Those who worship the host of heaven on the housetops;
Those who worship and swear oaths by the Lord,
But who also swear by Milcom;
Those who have turned back from following the Lord,
And have not sought the Lord, nor inquired of Him.”
The holy God of Israel will not tolerate the sin of unbelief evidenced by worshiping idols or false gods.
PRAY WITH TEARS THAT ISRAEL WILL HEAR GOD’S OFFER OF FORGIVENESS AND SALVATION.
