“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me,” Psalm 42:7.
“And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the Lord. And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play,” Exodus 32:1-6.
“I AM in the eye of the storm; for I AM there in the center. I will protect those who are mine.
When the waters of the deep come rushing in I will be a shelter to you. For in times past I guarded My People in many storms. The winds blow and they howl greatly and yet I calmed them when I was in the boat with My Disciples.
I tell you that there are winds in the natural and there are some in the spiritual. This storm that has now come upon your nation is nothing compared to the great one that is coming.
For now you are safe but when it comes you will be taken by surprise. Then the edges of your continent will be wiped out.
For you have been weighed in the balance. You have gone the way of Sodom and Gomorrah. You think that you are a righteous nation but I tell you that you are far from it.
Everyone has turned their ears from the plight of the poor. You go and sing your praises to Me in your Church services, and you hold your conferences to talk about the great moves of My Spirit, but then you return to your everyday lives being the same.
You have been weighed in the balance and there is no turning back now.
The one at the helm of your nation is propelling you into chaos and many of you are as blind sheep being led to the slaughter. You are no different than those who followed after Saul.
And yet My Mercy is everlasting. It extends from one generation to the next. But you have produced a golden calf in My Name!
Anything that has replaced Me and that you have given your undue homage unto, is an idol.
You say that you have not done this but you have,” says The LORD.
“You have been led down a road that is leading ever downward, and you have fallen into decay.
I would that your ears had been sharpened to all of this.
I would that you had gained some discernment, but instead you have chosen to gaze upon the beauty of the golden calf!”
