"Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you! O Israel, if you will listen to Me! There shall be no foreign god among you; Nor shall you worship any foreign god. I am the LORD your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
"But My people would not heed My voice, And Israel would have none of Me. So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart, To walk in their own counsels.
"Oh, that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways! I would soon subdue their enemies, And turn My hand against their adversaries. The haters of the LORD would pretend submission to Him, But their fate would endure forever. He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat; And with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you."
Look the progression in these few short verses. 1) The LORD, God, the Almighty promise a rich reward if Israel will listen to Him and shun other gods. 2) Israel pigheadedly refuses to listen and obey. 3) The LORD holds out an olive branch and promises to subdue all their enemies and return Israel to their favored nation status, if they live in obedience to Him.
Sound familiar, America. Are we sliding down that that same slope? Is it time to return the LORD's day to a day of worship and not a day of games, relaxation, and parties?.
