Thinking of the remnant this evening, wondering if they are experiencing many of the same emotions I have been experiencing for many months. The Spirit led me to Ezekiel chapter 9: 1-4
Then I heard him call out in a loud voice, “Bring near those who are appointed to execute judgment on the city, each with a weapon in his hand.” 2 And I saw six men coming from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with a deadly weapon in his hand. With them was a man clothed in linen who had a writing kit at his side. They came in and stood beside the bronze altar.
3 Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim, where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the Lord called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side 4 and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”
Are you lamenting and grieving over what we call Christianity here in America? Does it break your heart to see the emptiness within the eyes of those you pass on the street or see at work daily…or worse yet, the fact that many others don’t have a clue as they keep living their lives as though there will be no day of judgment…no “calling to account” what has been done in this life?
I believe the remnant is deeply grieving and lamenting what we are witnessing. Silently.
