When the Lord had something to say He would tell a prophet what to say and the unfortunate Prophet would have to go and tell the nation.
Many prophets died because they did the Lords bidding because many times the message was an unpopular one.
So the prophet would go to the temple and address the Nation and quite often an angry king.
It usually stated like this.
A wild eyed prophet with out of fashion robe and a bad hair day would March into the court of the temple with his smitting stick at hand. Then he would thunder out
” thus saith the Lord ” if you loved God you listened and repented of your sin if not well then you got paid you wages (the wages of sin are death).
THE POINT OF THE ABOVE IS SIMPLE.
THE only reason for God to create man was to have people who will worship Him for all eternity.
NOT BECAUSE HE WAS LONELY OR NEEDED A PAL CALLED AL OR JOE.
Further the children of disobedience who cause the havoc in the world will one day be paid in full for their sin’s and no excuse will prevent this happening.
GOD LOVES THE SINNERS BUT HATES SIN.
GODS REMEDY FOR SIN IS REPENTANCE, FAILURE TO REPENT THEN LEAVES GOD WITH ONLY ONE OPTION.
THIS OPTION HAS BEEN USED WITH GREAT AND GOOD EFFECT BY MAN BEFORE IN FACT CERTAIN GOVERNMENT ORGANS USE THIS TO PERMANENTLY FIX A PROBLEM THAT CANNOT BE FIXED IN ANY OTHER WAY.
BURN IT OUT.
permanent Disobedience to God’s plan for your salvation, commands and rules causes you to be placed outside of God’s perfect plan for your life and thus makes you cannon fodder for the devil and the deamons.
If you think that the devil is going to offer you a deal that will make your life on earth easier then are in for a surprise.
He doesn’t have to offer you a deal for your soul he already owns it.
Remember that little thing called original sin?
In fact the devil hates you because while you are alive you represent to him, his failure to win Heaven.
His humiliation when been cast from heaven was complete when God created man in his image.
The reason why music is such an important part of mankind’s history is because the chief musician in the heavenly choir was the devil.
The devil uses music to influence man with bands that play all kinds of music that take you away from God and cause you to forget that you were made for worship.
Even in the church this type of music is to be found, no longer do you find great worship songs in the church most of the time now all that is sung is commercial imitation with no saving power.
So who are you worshiping.
