 The sad reality of our days

Ezekiel 22:23-31

As we read this passage we are faced with modern reality. Here there are three classes of people:
The Priests, the Princes and the Prophets.

The Priests, responsible for teaching the law to the people, do not know how to differentiate right from wrong.
Who never stopped to learn, will never know how to teach.
Those who have never sat down to listen will never be able to speak.

Today's priests cannot teach the people, because they know nothing about right and wrong. They know more about Old Testament hero stories and less about the God of Heroes.

The princes - the rich, who should help, are the ones who mistreat the most. They murder and commit all kinds of evil against people in the name of wealth. My country Brazil in 2032 will be almost 100% evangelical, according to a survey. But the greater the number of evangelicals, the greater the impiety and sins of the people.

The prophets, instead of prophesying repentance, prophesy victory. They care more about the hands of God than about God Himself. They want blessings, but not the God of blessings.
Many within the churches, in adultery, pornography, lies and many other sins, receive a word of victory, "God heals you today", "God opens the doors Today" - When He never spoke.

The description of this scenario, perhaps, resembles his. I don't just want to talk about the error, because identifying an error does not make us right. Many can see mistakes, but fail to do what is right.

The question is, does God look for Men to put in the gap. Can he count on you?

I have a cry for everyone who reads this meditation and feels this calling. Please get out of the entertainment, lock yourself in a room and seek the Lord.
It is time for us to seek God so that He will come down again and make us experience days like the old days.

God is the same, His word is the same. But are you still the same?

 Re: The sad reality of our days


Thank you for posting Brother!

Jesus came preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God.
, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:15)

I searched for a man among them who would build up a wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.
(Ezekiel 22:30)

For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. (James 2:13)
