“And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.” Ezekiel 33:32.
“Do you not know and can you not see, that I had poured out upon you oh land of the free and home of the brave?
For you had once been a land born for freedom, but freedom has lost its way. It lost its way when you began to seek after other gods.
It lost its way when you butchered many children. It lost its way when you chose violence over peace.
For you chose the way of greed. You did not stand up for the fatherless and widow. You ignored the homeless on every street corner.
For I called you to bear fruit in this day and hour, but instead, I see rotteness across the land. You have ’causes’ but they are not my causes,” says The LORD.
“You hold your meetings and you plan for tomorrow, but you do not know what tomorrow will bring. Many of you are wayward children without a shepherd.
And yet I have loved you with an everlasting love. I poured out my love upon this nation, and yet you have trampled upon that love.
In your pride and arrogance you think that your land is safe; and yet you are not even aware that I lifted the safety net some time ago.
You remember the fallen, but tomorrow you will continue in your life as usual. Have you listened to the prophets or have you buried your heads in the sand?
Your television evangelists and preachers seek after mammon instead of Me. They promise you many things, but it is only for their own kingdoms that they build.
The world hangs in a balance. The winds are beginning to turn. There is a movement at foot. There is a fire ignited, but whose voice will they follow?
The governments of the world plot and debate, while the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
To what would I compare this generation? For you would think that I was like one piping out a message on a flute.
And yet you cannot hear the drums roll. You cannot see the march. You cannot see the flags unfurled. They bear the flags of freedom, and yet freedom is far from you.
For you are children that have mixed the cups of destiny. You chose to suck the breasts of your forefathers. But you chose patriotism over Me. “
