In the day of calmaity will you curse God or Cry out to God
Jeremiah 2:25-28 (NLT2)
25 When will you stop running? When will you stop panting after other gods? But you say, ‘Save your breath. I’m in love with these foreign gods, and I can’t stop loving them now!’
26 “Israel is like a thief who feels shame only when he gets caught. They, their kings, officials, priests, and prophets— all are alike in this.
27 To an image carved from a piece of wood they say, ‘You are my father.’ To an idol chiseled from a block of stone they say, ‘You are my mother.’ They turn their backs on me, but in times of trouble they cry out to me, ‘Come and save us!’
28 But why not call on these gods you have made? When trouble comes, let them save you if they can! For you have as many gods as there are towns in Judah.
The modern day church especially here in America and spefically in Colorada because of apathy has been caught alseep.
Alseep to the spiritual warfare that has started to intensify against the Prescribed Order of God, which this great nation founded the constitution upon.
This has occured due to the water down gospel that is preached in so many church’s weekly.
2 Corinthians 6:14-17 (NLT2)
14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?
15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?
16 And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
17 Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.
Does God use nature to work His purpose to awake people out of their apathy?
Fires, Floods, Earthquakes, such adverse weather that men shake their head and wonder what is happening.
Amos 7:1-2 (NLT2)
1 The Sovereign LORD showed me a vision. I saw him preparing to send a vast swarm of locusts over the land. This was after the king’s share had been harvested from the fields and as the main crop was coming up.
2 In my vision the locusts ate every green plant in sight. Then I said, “O Sovereign LORD, please forgive us or we will not survive, for Israel is so small.”
This swarm of locust that is now swarming over the land of America is called Apathy in the church and Socialism in the government.
Apathy has abounded in the church since the hippie revolution in the 60’s. Now in 2018 many pastor’s are preaching inclusion of all religions instead of coming out from among them.
Will God repent of this that has been sent upon the land?
2 Chronicles 7:14-15 (NLT2)
14 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.
15 My eyes will be open and my ears attentive to every prayer made in this place.
Now is the time to awake and become engaged

Very good Paul. I was curious about the first verse of Amos 7.
1 The Sovereign LORD showed me a vision. I saw him preparing to send a vast swarm of locusts over the land. This was after —-“the king’s share had been harvested from the fields”—- and as the main crop was coming up.
If I understand this verse correctly, the king and his court, got fed, but the people suffered the swarm. Why did God not let the king to suffer with the people?
Lyndon, good question.
The reason the king was spared judgment in verse 1, is to be an example to the modern day church.
Jeroboam can be compared to the many modern day government officials that have their position only because of the apathy of those that profess chrisitianty.
Although Jeroboam was a wicked King that ruled for 41 years, God used him to restore the coast of Israel to prevent invasion. 2 Ki 14:25 However the sin of Jeroboam did not go unpunished as seen in 7:8-9
Amos 7:8-9 (NLT2) 8 And the LORD said to me, “Amos, what do you see?” I answered, “A plumb line.” And the Lord replied, “I will test my people with this plumb line. I will no longer ignore all their sins. 9 The pagan shrines of your ancestors will be ruined, and the temples of Israel will be destroyed; I will bring the dynasty of King Jeroboam to a sudden end.”
The people suffered the consequences of their apathy, and the idolatry that they chose to continue in.
God hates hypocrisy!
God does not need to repent, but the sinners do.
Thank you for addressing the corruption in the church, where too many “pastors” love money more than God and who are full of themselves instead of The Holy Spirit.
