I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.
2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day. Isaiah 65
“I can make all things possible, says the Lord. I can make all things possible for my sons and daughters. I cause the sun to come up in the morning. I bring out the rays of the sun to warm the earth and to provide growth for all living things. Without the sun you would quickly die away. For every living thing needs the warmth to survive. I bring sunshine and rain in their time and season.
I have brought you to a place where you are dependent upon these things. And yet man still does not acknowledge that all these things come from my hand. I created this world and everything in it. I placed man at the center of these things and I gave him a garden to till and to take care of. But he chose to rebel against Me, and so he was banished from that garden long ago.
And then I saw the evil of mankind growing, and I had to wipe out the world through a flood. I had my servant Noah build an ark, and only he and his family survived. And then through the years I raised up various prophets and patriarchs to warn the people. And through them, I delivered kingdoms and warned of the captivity of my people. The walls came tumbling down through my servant Joshua. Various kings came and went. Men of wisdom and renown came and finally my Son came and chose the death on the cross for the sins of mankind. And now after two thousand more years the earth and its inhabitants have fallen into utter depravity.
I still warn my people. I still have some who have spoken out against these things. But now many still scoff at them. And so now once again, after many millenniums, I have chosen to bring judgment upon the earth. I must get my people’s attention. For much of the world is still asleep. Much of the world lives out their lives without any regard for Me. Some still go to church and they sing their songs. They have their favorite Sunday school programs and classes. But many of these think that life will go on as usual.
Many of these go through the outward signs, but their hearts have drifted far from Me. They know of Me, but they don’t truly ‘know Me.’ Many have chosen the ways of entertainment. Many are so busy with their electronic devices that they can’t put them down for just one minute. My people, you have fallen prey to these devices. They have captured your every moment. How could you possibly think that I could get your attention? But I tell you, you will know. You will know when the waters rise. You will know when the great winds come. You will know when your great river overflows its banks. Maybe you will come to Me on that day. Maybe you will come to Me when your cites are burning. Maybe you will come to Me when your land is invaded. It is your choice. “
