MORNINGTIME 2210
 
Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; [25] But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: [26] I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; [31] Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. [32] For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. [33] But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.    Proverbs 1:24-26, 31-33. Let's put a different slant on these verses that hits closer to home. Verse numbers are important here. Between 25 and 26, your church has no Pastor and the search committee is not listening to the Lord on whom to fill the position with. They have their own agenda and qualifications and will find the man THEY want. At verse 26, the Lord will wait patiently, knowing it will take a while before church problems start to show up. Verse 31 is saying, You chose a man I did not send you, and when his faults start to manifest, YOU WON'T SEE THEM because your eyes are blinded. Verse 32, Because of the teaching and theology of YOUR choice, his watered down "gospel" will send your congregation straight to Hell. They will not stand in their day of calamity. Your (false) teachers will lead them to Hell also, they won't listen to me either. Therefore, because you ALL have a heart for a preacher and teachers who will NOT listen to me, I WILL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU WANT. I WILL GIVE YOU THE DECEPTION YOU WANT TO HEAR. Your (4 walls) church will grow and prosper in attracting deceived people, they will walk in their own Love of Man, AND WHEN CALAMITY STRIKES, I WILL HAVE ALREADY LEFT AND PUT ICHABOD OVER THE DOOR. I WILL NOT HEAR YOU. And verse 33, That is your future if you continue to ignore Me. TODAY is the Day of Salvation, turn your hearts to me NOW, while I may still be found. If you don't Seek ME, you will NOT, Be Blessed.
