FROM JAMIE WALDEN:IT IS WITH A HEAVY HEART THAT I SHARE WITH YOU WHAT THE LORD GAVE ME THE OTHER DAY. THIS IS ONLY THE SECOND TIME THE LORD HAS SPOKEN TO ME, 'THUS SAYS THE LORD.'
MY LAMENT BEFORE THE LORD 01/23/2019:
Oh Lord, my heart is downcast within me. The wicked strut about freely because what is vile is honored among men! -This nation is so wicked and accursed; who can understand it?!
All day long evildoers shake their fists against the Most High; they devour the innocent; they crush underfoot the defenseless ones.
Every image is vile. Every ringing sound of laughter is offered in contempt of your Holiness.
Those who say, “We are His people; we are highly favored and a delight to the King,” are the very ones who consume the ways of the wicked with great delight. They cast their lots with the vile and detestable and proclaim, “it is good.”
It is your people, those who say to the world, “We are the light; we are the hope,” who deprive the innocent ones of justice. Those who say, “Ours is an Everlasting Kingdom,” are the one who crush the little ones underfoot. In silence and cowardice, they have become all things to all people, but have no regard for the Holy One of Israel.
How long, Oh Lord, will the mockers, mock and the scoffers, scoff? Who long will the abominations of the lawlessness reign in the land? How long, Oh Lord, can your heart endure such grief? Your burden, Oh Lord, what your eyes bear witness to day after day, no one can fathom!
I hate the wickedness; their smiles and jeers and shouts of triumph over truth, justice, and goodness! They go on from bad to worse, with no fear of the Lord. Each day their hearts plot evil against your Anointed One. They drink the blood of the innocent down to the dregs and then shout aloud for more!
And you people, Oh God, make their agreement by their cowardice! Your people find no delight in your commands and decrees. Your people rebuke your correction and shut the mouths of the Watchmen. Your people increase the noise of their merriment and seek to forestall the Coming of your Anointed One.
Oh Lord, how do those who fear you, who revere your and name and renown, live on in this generation?
THE LORD SPOKE:
WRITE, “THUS SAYS THE LORD”:
IF YOU WILL WEEP AND MOURN, IF YOU WILL WAIL AND TEAR YOUR CLOTHES, I WILL COME NEAR TO YOU. I WILL RESTORE YOU AND BE YOUR REFUGE; BUT YOU MUST CONSECRATE YOURSELF.
MY ANGER IS KINDELED; I CAN HOLD IT IN NO LONGER. I HAVE SEEN AND HEARD WITH MY OWN EARS THE CRIES OF THE INNOCENT. I HAVE SEEN AND HEARD WITH MY OWN EARS THE TAUNTS OF THE PROUD AGAINST MY GLORY AND AGAINST MY SON.
I WILL REPAY. I WILL DO IT SWIFTLY FOR THEIR TIME HAS COME. I WILL NOT RELENT.
THIS IS A NATION OF DEMONS; A HIDE OUT FOR ALL THAT IS FOUL AND UNCLEAN. WICKEDNESS IS AT HOME WITHIN HER; HERE SHE HAS NO FEAR OF REPROACH.
FROM LEAST TO GREATEST, ALL HAVE TASTED THE FRUIT OF DECEPTION AND SAID IN THEIR OWN HEARTS, ‘I AM SATISFIED’.
A CRUEL PEOPLE WILL CRUSH THEIR DELIGHT; A PEOPLE FROM AFAR. A PEOPLE WITHOUT COMPASSION EQUAL TO THE COMPASSION YOU, YOURSELVES, HAVE WITHHELD FROM THE INNOCENT. AS YOU HAVE CUT, DASHED, AND DEVOURED ALL INNOCENCE, SO TOO WILL THIS PEOPLE DEAL WITH YOU.
WHIILE YOU ARE CONTENTED IN YOUR LUXURY AND DELIGHTED IN YOUR REVILARY I, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, WILL DO THESE THINGS TO YOU. FOR WHAT ELSE CAN I DO WITH THIS PEOPLE? THEY HAVE NO SHAME AND THEY FEAR NOTHING!
THEREFORE, THIS PEOPLE THEY DO NOT KNOW WILL BE TO THE ALTOGETHER FEARSOME; THEY WILL TASTE THE SORROW OF THEIR SHAME.
THE TIME IS AT HAND; I, THE LORD, HAVE SPOKEN.
