God’s Message to an Ungodly Nation
Apostle Victoria Russell
“Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD’s house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD’s house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word…”(Jeremiah 26:2)
Bahamas, knowing that Jeremiah’s prophecy would offend people and cause hostility and opposition, Jeremiah may have been tempted to hold back some particularly severe words given to him by the Lord, the Lord told him not to omit a single word. The entire message of God must be proclaimed. Faithful ministers should not avoid speaking the harsh words of God’s commands and warning even thought they know some will turn away foam them, those who ignore parts of God’s Word and accomodate the sins of the congregation are unworthy ministers. Bahamas God’s word is harsh in this message; I will be persecuted and threatened but I cannot retract this message of doom. My authority comes from God and God is calling this nation to genuine repentence.
“Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye teh word of the LORD;…”(Ezekiel 13:2). God condemns the false prophets in this nation who are proclaiming that there would be no coming judgment. The false prophets of that day they were falsely predicting to the people that they were secure, even though they were living in sin and idolatry. God was and still is against such prophets. The false prophets seduced the people into a false sense of security by pronouncing God’s peace and salvation to them, while they contiued in rebellion against His laws. For this God would cut them off from the nation of Israel and from his salvation. Today in our Bahamas, there are false prophets in the church, who teach that a person can be a genuine believer and possess eternal life in Christ, yet at teh same time participate in and enjoy the sins of immorality, greed, homosexuality, sorcery or any other kind of abominable evil and say thus says the Lord God.”And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls!Will ye hunt the sould of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?”(Ezekiel 13:18)
Yes Bahamas, God is saying”Woe to the women…”these women were involved in socery, spiritualism and black magic, they were even using the powers of evil to bring death to certain individuals.”Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his inquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;…”(Ezekiel 14:4)Yes Bahamas the elders of Israel were guilt of idolatry
