God’s people sat under a message of searing truth yet they turned away from it. They rebelled against it! They have made their faces harder than a rock;
I have been listening to your program a lot lately. Even though David
Wilkerson has been gone nearly 4 years, his daily messages are quite often
right on. So, i thought I would share with you.
For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is
given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one
dealeth falsely. . . . Were they ashamed when they had committed
abomination? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush:
therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit
them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord (Jeremiah 6:13, 15).
The prophet Jeremiah saw a horrible condition coming upon Gods people. To
hide their sins they had begun living behind a facade of superficial peace
and security. Greed and covetousness had so overcome their hearts that they
camouflaged their hurts with a phony brokenness. Their entire lives had
become superficialsuperficial tears, superficial repentance, even
Gods people had lost their sense of shame and grief for sinsin in society
and sin in their own lives. They no longer felt Gods hatred and wrath
against iniquity. Sin had become just one of those things.
Jeremiah cried out, Were they ashamed when they sinned? No! They were not
at all ashamedneither could they blush!
Holy Ghost blushing is not just red cheeks from simple modesty. It is
feeling wounded, ashamed, devastatedgrieved that the name and purity of
Jesus our Lord has been trampled, that His reputation has been smeared.
Gods people sat under a message of searing truth yet they turned away from
it. They rebelled against it! They have made their faces harder than a
rock; they have refused to return (Jeremiah 3:5). They were committing
adultery by romping with harlots and lusting after their neighbors wives.
In verse 11 of the same chapter, Jeremiah called it outright treachery
against the Lord!
In spite of all the prophetic warnings by Jeremiah, these people went their
merry way, saying, Neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see
sword nor famine (verse 12). Judgment is not Gods message for us, they
God warned His people to heed the instructions of the word being delivered
to them or He would depart from them. Be thou instructed, O Jerusalem, lest
my soul depart from thee (Jeremiah 6:8). And again God said: I am speaking
clearly! I am warning! But who is listening?
Jesus Christ is Lord!!
