Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest:
“Either Jesus Christ is the supreme Authority on the human heart, or He is not worth paying any attention to.
The people will oppress one another,
man against man, neighbor against neighbor;
the youth will act arrogantly toward the elder,
and the worthless toward the honorable.
This happening in America.
For Jerusalem has stumbled
and Judah has fallen
because they have spoken and acted against the Lord,
defying His glorious presence.
America has also “spoken and acted against the Lord, defying His glorious presence.” Notable that not just the city of Jerusalem was involved, but it took down the whole country with it.
The look on their faces testifies against them,
and like Sodom, they flaunt their sin.
They do not conceal it.
Woe to them,
for they have brought evil on themselves.
Oh! The numbers of people I could point fingers at! Repent! Come to Jesus! Let Him wash you clean! Turn from your wicked, sinful, evil ways, and follow Jesus. Truly open your heart and accept Him. He is the only way!
Youths oppress My people,
and women rule over them.
My people, your leaders mislead you;
they confuse the direction of your paths.
Wow, won’t this get the feminists up in arms?! This is a good example of God’s order. The man is supposed to lead–this also means he catches the heat, the flack, and the fallout. He’s the first to die.
16 The Lord also says:
Because the daughters of Zion are haughty,
walking with heads held high
and seductive eyes,
going along with prancing steps,
jingling their ankle bracelets,
17 the Lord will put scabs on the heads
of the daughters of Zion,
and the Lord will shave their foreheads bare.
18 On that day the Lord will strip their finery: ankle bracelets, headbands, crescents, 19 pendants, bracelets, veils, 20 headdresses, ankle jewelry, sashes, perfume bottles, amulets, 21 signet rings, nose rings, 22 festive robes, capes, cloaks, purses, 23 garments, linen clothes, turbans, and veils.
24 Instead of perfume there will be a stench;
instead of a belt, a rope;
instead of beautifully styled hair, baldness;
instead of fine clothes, sackcloth;
instead of beauty, branding.
25 Your men will fall by the sword,
your warriors in battle.
