Dear Church #1

warning

 

From Ezekiel 16

Dear Church in the west,

 

As I live, says the Lord God, Sodom your sister has not done, she nor her daughters, as you have done, you and your daughters.

Behold, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: pride, overabundance of food, prosperous ease, and idleness were hers and her daughters’; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

And they were haughty and committed abominable offenses before Me; therefore I removed them when I saw it and I saw fit.

Neither has Samaria committed half of your sins, but you have multiplied your [idolatrous] abominations more than they and have seemed to justify your sisters [Samaria and Sodom] in all their wickedness by all the abominable things which you have done—you even make them appear righteous in comparison with you.

You bear the penalty of your lewdness and your [idolatrous] abominations, says the Lord.

Yes, thus says the Lord God: I will even deal with you as you have done, who have despised the oath in breaking the covenant;

Nevertheless, I will [earnestly] remember My covenant with you in the days of your youth and I will establish with you an everlasting covenant.

Then you will [earnestly] remember your ways and be ashamed and confounded when you shall receive your sisters, both your elder and your younger; I will give them to you as daughters, but not on account of your covenant [with Me].

And I will establish My covenant with you, and you shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord,

That you may [earnestly] remember and be ashamed and confounded and never open your mouth again because of your shame, when I have forgiven you all that you have done, says the Lord God.
