Is it any wonder that the Jews tried to kill every prophet God sent to them? After sending the prophets, they then killed the fulfillment of the word of prophets in Jesus himself. Read what all the prophets had to say, its the same message over and over again, take a look here:
Hosea 2:1'Say ye to your brethren -- Ammi, And to your sisters -- Ruhamah.
2 Plead ye with your mother -- plead, (For she is not My wife, and I am not her husband,) And she turneth her whoredoms from before her, And her adulteries from between her breasts,
3 Lest I strip her naked. And have set her up as in the day of her birth, And have made her as a wilderness, And have set her as a dry land, And have put her to death with thirst.
4 And her sons I do not pity, For sons of whoredoms are they,
5 For gone a-whoring hath their mother, Acted shamefully hath their conceiver, For she hath said, I go after my lovers, Those giving my bread and my water, My wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.
6 Therefore, lo, I am hedging up thy way with thorns, And I have made for her a wall, And her paths she doth not find.
And she hath pursued her lovers, And she doth not overtake them, And hath sought them, and doth not find, And she hath said: I go, and I turn back unto My first husband, For -- better to me then than now.
8 And she knew not that I had given to her, The corn, and the new wine, and the oil. Yea, silver I did multiply to her, And the gold they prepared for Baal.
9 Therefore do I turn back, And I have taken My corn in its season, And My new wine in its appointed time, And I have taken away My wool and My flax, covering her nakedness.
10 And now do I reveal her dishonour before the eyes of her lovers, And none doth deliver her out of My hand.
11 And I have caused to cease all her joy, Her festival, her new moon, and her sabbath, Even all her appointed times,
12 And made desolate her vine and her fig-tree, Of which she said, A gift they are to me, That my lovers have given to me, And I have made them for a forest, And consumed them hath a beast of the field.
13 And I have charged on her the days of the Baalim, To whom she maketh perfume, And putteth on her ring and her ornament, And goeth after her lovers, And Me forgat -- an affirmation of Jehovah.
14 Therefore, lo, I am enticing her, And have caused her to go to the wilderness, And I have spoken unto her heart,
15 And given to her her vineyards from thence, And the valley of Achor for an opening of hope, And she hath responded there as in the days of her youth, And as in the day of her coming up out of the land of Egypt.
16 And it hath come to pass, in that day, An affirmation of Jehovah, Thou dost call Me -- My husband, And dost not call Me any more -- My lord.
17 And I have turned aside the names of the lords from her mouth, And they are not remembered any more by their name.
18 And I have made to them a covenant in that day, with the beast of the field, And with the fowl of the heavens, And the creeping thing of the ground, And bow, and sword, and war I break from off the land, And have caused them to lie down confidently.
19 And I have betrothed thee to Me to the age, And betrothed thee to Me in righteousness, And in judgment, and kindness, and mercies,
20 And betrothed thee to Me in faithfulness, And thou hast known Jehovah.
21 And it hath come to pass in that day, I answer -- an affirmation of Jehovah, I answer the heavens, and they answer the earth.
22 And the earth doth answer the corn, And the new wine, and the oil, And they answer Jezreel.
23 And I have sowed her to Me in the land, And I have pitied Lo-Ruhamah, And I have said to Lo-Ammi, My people thou art, and it saith, My God!'
Theres a repetitive theme here, do you see it? Over and over again, the same things
Did you see it? I go and turn back to my first husband...............first husband...first love. Gee, that sounds familiar, where have I seen that before? Oh yea, right here:
Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. 6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
Gosh, I guess all the words of the prophets DO HAVE some importance for us today. What does he mean 'left thy first love?' If you ever wondered what that meant, now you know, go read ALL the prophets, read their message from the creator to men to STOP THEIR WHORING, stop their spiritual prostitution. Todays babylonian churchianity is a HARLOT. And by the way, 2 sentences after talking about 'leaving their first love' it talks about HATING THE SINS OF THE NICOLAITANS....coincidence? You decide.
The Lord wants you body soul and spirit, he wants ALL OF YOU. Half hearted committments, 'making a decision' for Jesus one day, then acting the prostitute the rest of your life WILL NOT CUT IT. Belonging to Jesus means belonging to an ELITE GROUP, a group that is FEW in number, a group that MOST people wont qualify for. Sitting on the throne at the center of eternity IS an elite privilege. We are told to die to ourselves so we may live with Christ, in Christ. We were'nt told to turn our backs on this world as some kind of cosmic killjoy project, we were told to put everything away from us so we MAY GAIN EVERYTHING. WAKE UP. "In Christ" we TAKE POSSESSION OF ALL THINGS, THAT MEANS EVERYTHING. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords and we ARE IN HIM. It really starts to get surreal when you sit down and think about all the things promised to us. We are children of the MOST HIGH GOD, members of the only TRUE royal family. Because of these things, you can laugh at the rich people of this world. What do they think they have? Who do they think they are? They are grass and mists, here for a moment then POOF gone away forever. Wake up, time is short. Jesus could come back today or next year, I don't know, what I do know is we must be READY and watching when he shows up. Love, grace and peace
