No doubt some professed Christians are upset with me and others of God’s faithful prophetic voices at this hour for exposing and calling out their corruptions in word and deed along with holding all of the great number of guilty responsible for His judgments upon our land. They want a false hope and future rooted in this present world proclaimed to them. My telling the truth from God’s Word keeps messing that up.1 Be assured O professed Christian corrupting yourself in all of your wicked ways, the children of Israel before you were also infuriated with God’s faithful prophets whose words from Him were thoroughly vindicated in their punishment (Jeremiah 26; Matthew 23:29-39)!
Did anyone take heed to what the Lord had me to write in the final two paragraphs of last week’s post?2 God would certainly know if His people have been disobedient to His Word and care or do you actually believe God does not see you and what you do moment by moment of every day? If you do not really believe that God sees you, then, you must not be serving the God of the Bible who is omnipresent and your imagined god very small. Indeed, God sees you to the core of your being as well as your actions before you carry them out (Psalm 139:1-12; Jeremiah 23:23-24)! Israel often failed to consider this truth as God had to continually send prophets to cry out against their sins.
Through the prophet Jeremiah, for example, God queried the people of Judah about their sinful ways carried out before they assembled at the Temple, then upon arriving, false belief that being there protected and enabled them to keep practicing those sinful ways. He declares, ‘“Behold, I, even I, have seen it,’” (Jeremiah 7:8-11, NKJV). But you say, “It’s not like that with me.” Isn’t it though? You also willfully disobey the Lord’s transcendent spiritual principles, moral precepts and ethics in His Law written in your mind and on your heart throughout the week then, show up to church falsely believing your presence (and for some, work too) is His approval and release from fear of judgment.
Yet, says the Lord again as He did to Judah, ‘“I have seen your adulteries and your lustful neighings, the lewdness of your harlotry, your abominations on the hills in the fields,’” (Jeremiah 13:27, NKJV). But it is not just the wicked corruptions of the people, it is also their guilty leaders the Lord sees and speaks of through His faithful prophets (Jeremiah 23:11-14). He supernaturally takes the prophet Ezekiel on a show and tell of the Temple itself; graphically showing him what He had been seeing the leaders and people in rebellion do in His holy house (Ezekiel 8:1-6). Repeatedly throughout the tour, God directs Ezekiel to “see” what was going on (Ezekiel 8:7-17, NKJV).
Revealing to them by His faithful prophets He had been seeing their sinful conduct, God also reminded all of Judah as Israelites of their covenant obligation to obey Him and called them to repent for failing to do so. But they stubbornly refused desiring instead to follow ‘“the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts and went backward and not forward.’” ‘“They did worse than their fathers’” as they listened not to God’s prophets, but their deceitful leaders and false prophets. Thus, they left Him with no option after long forbearing with their refusal to repent or ‘“receive correction.’” He would and did severely punish them (Jeremiah 7:16-8:13; Ezekiel 8:18-9; Zephaniah 1:4-13, 3:1-7, NKJV)!
The same end approaches for our nation because professed Christians also defiantly will not repent or receive correction from God’s Word and ongoing judgments (Jeremiah 18:1-17)! For God sees the idolatrous exaltation of self, family, the nation, money, material things and success by large numbers of His professed people in America. As well, He has seen the willful corruptions and casting aside of His Word by the guilty to justify their idolatry and rejection of other transcendent spiritual principles, morality and ethics of His written Law. He most certainly sees how many of His professed people have shamelessly taken a stand with the world against His set order of mankind decrying His allowing men to lord it over women as some falsely assert--oh, how deceived (1 Timothy 4:1-2)!3
The foregoing is another confirmation the God who sees is consistent. Our way is not hidden from Him and He is about to punish the guilty accordingly!4 It is also validation of my calling and ministry for good in the American Church as before that day near, I cry out in the midst giving warning (Ezekiel 33:1-9) and calling for repentance (Jeremiah 8:14-17; Zephaniah 2:1-3).5 This is in lockstep with all of God’s prophets of the Bible’s Old Testament, the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles in the New as well as my faithful contemporaries. Many honest Christians know I do the Lord’s work, but because of fearing men that claim in persecution I am “controversial,” have not openly stood with me in support (Jeremiah 18:18; Matthew 5:10-12; John 7:12-13).6 God already vindicates me!7
1 Contrary to the instruction of biblical Christianity the guilty love this present world that “is passing away” in spite of their wishes; having not embraced the hope we have in
Christ at His return (1 Peter 1:13-21; 1 John 2:15-17, NKJV).

3 This latter departure from sound doctrine is very egregious since the guilty leave themselves with no ground for which to stand against the world’s rebellion against God and
His Word without hypocrisy; being guilty of the same themselves.

6 Since when is the Word of God controversial except among those who do not know and love Him in faithfulness or wish to be obedient? Labeling God’s faithful as contro-
versial for declaring His Word in truth and as it is written is only a clever way for disobedient, compromised and corrupt professed Christian leaders of manmade Christianity
the religion to tarnish those they consider opposition. I stand in excellent company as the Scripture references show!
7 As an example, see the two-part post that begins April 30, 2023, God’s Warning To Non-Christians, under the category, Call To Repent. In it the Lord causes me to speak of
His “violent whirlwind” in these “latter days,” (Jeremiah 23:18-20, NKJV). The uptick in the frequency and severity of His violent whirlwind along with other incredible weather
events that have been occurring and that will not diminish going forward until Christ returns vindicates the truth of His Word spoken through me. I am not anything, but the
Word of the Lord by the Holy Spirit and paying heed to His call to repent by His people are very important (Acts 11:27-30)!
Woe to those that for gaining members and building churches lie to prospect unbelievers about becoming Christians indicating they do not have to adopt all of the transcendent spiritual principles, morality and ethics in God’s Law (Habakkuk 2:12-14)! You are deceived and deceiving people!1 You will not go unpunished as one that misrepresents the faith of Jesus Christ who perfectly fulfilled God’s written Law and died on the cross to save us from every thought, attitude, word, deed and omission God in it declares is sin (Matthew 5:17-20; Mark 9:42-48; Galatians 1:6-10; 2 Peter 2:1-3; Jude 3-5). Christians are called out of the world to God to live on purpose to please Him and do His will!2
After Adam’s disobedience to His single command in Eden and punishing him (Genesis 2:15-17, 3:6, 17-19), God in amazing longsuffering progressively made known His Kingdom’s transcendent spiritual principles, morality and ethics to his descendants through judging them. He judged Cain after warning sin was near in his murderous anger and destroyed the world in the flood in part for its violence; instructing Noah and his sons to treat man’s life as precious. He also destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for gross sexual sin (Genesis 4:1-12, 6:11-13, 9:1-7, 19:4-25). God worked this way until He spoke and wrote His Law with Moses (Deuteronomy 4:1-14, 31:9-13, 24-26; Romans 5:12-14).
Though His written Law was given to Israel, the surrounding Gentile nations with them were to admire the righteousness of and live by it. Alas though, the righteous Law condemned men because they could not keep it. Nevertheless, it stood exposing mankind’s depravity and inability to be saved from the sin it revealed that enslaved them and frustrated their best efforts to live it out (Romans 7:7-23). But God knowing all of this, already had a plan in place to make the Law a “tutor” that would bring men to and save us through faith in His “Son,” Jesus Christ, by whom He has spoken in a final way to the world (Romans 3:10-31, 7:24-8:4, 10:11-13; Galatians 3:19-4:7; Hebrews 1:1-5, NKJV).
Thus, it is true no one has to keep Jewish specific aspects of the Law such as circumcision, the Sabbath, dietary regulations, rituals or the seven Annual Feasts to be saved. Born again Gentiles in Jesus Christ do not have to keep these as part of our faith and its practice either. However, our observant Jewish Christian brethren keep the God ordained covenant requirements such as circumcision, the Sabbath, rituals and seven Annual Feasts in the written Law as part of their ethnic identity and heritage. The Lord, His apostles and elders in the first century church at Jerusalem settled all of this once and for all (Mark 7:14-19; Acts 13:26-39, 15:1-31; Galatians 2:1-3:9, 5:1-15).
Evident in the consensus decree of the Jerusalem Church Council is that the transcendent spiritual principles, morality and ethics of God’s Law are to be honored in the living of all Christians--Jew and Gentile! Indeed, God by the Holy Spirit puts His laws in the minds and writes them on the hearts of all who are saved by grace through faith in Christ as part of His New Covenant so that we cannot claim ignorance or have any excuse for our disobedience (2 Corinthians 3:1-6; Hebrews 8:7-13). The fact that His transcendent spiritual principles, morality and ethics also appear in God’s written Law communicated to Israel in commandments, ordinances etc. does not nullify them!3
Just like Israel, Christians are called out of Egypt (the world, if you will) to be royal ‘“priests,’” ‘“a holy nation’” and “His own special people” in the Promised Land of God’s Kingdom reign (Exodus 19:3-6; 1 Peter 2:9-10, NKJV). As He spoke to Israel, so, He speaks to us saying, ‘“I am the LORD your God. According to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, you shall not do; and according to the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, you shall not do; nor shall you walk in their ordinances. You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances to walk in them: I am the LORD your God,’” (Leviticus 18:1-5, NKJV). Do you hear Him, professed Christian?4
From the forgoing eternally transcendent spiritual principle of faithfulness to God to issues of morality such as sexual purity and ethics to include just measurements, all appear in the written Law He gave Israel (Leviticus 18:6-20:27). As Christ exemplified, love for the Father and Him is our motive for walking in obedience to His transcendent spiritual principles, morality and ethics embodied in the written Law (John 8:28-29, 14:15, 21-24, 31). In so doing, we serve as preserving “salt” and illuminating “light” for those we live among and “glorify” God (Matthew 5:13-16, NKJV)! If however, we do as those we live among, for example bow to idols, practice sexual immorality and greedily cheat folk while refusing to repent, then, as Israel of old, punishment is the end (Jeremiah 4-5).5,6

3 This lie has been planted by Satan and widely spread over the centuries such that much confusion and discord exists in the Body of Christ because of it. Chris-
tians are to highly esteem and fulfill through obedience every transcendent spiritual principle, moral and ethical instruction of God in His whole Word even stumb-
ling and fumbling as we go, but receiving His forgiveness after our appropriate confession and repentance (1 John 1:9-2:2).
4 Don’t miss God’s prohibition of walking in the ordinances of the worldly nation, state, county, city or religion that directly conflict with His! Is there a price to pay for
this? Yes! Faithful Christians have been paying the price for obeying God’s Word in whatever form it has taken up to and including martyrdom since Christ in the
first century A.D. warned about and experienced it followed by His apostles and many disciples up to this very hour all over the world (Matthew 10:16-39; John 15:
18-16:4, 18:1-19:30; Acts 4:1-22, 5:12-42, 6:8-7:60).
5 Idolatry, sexual immorality and unjust measures (producers are shrinking product amounts while charging the same or a greater price) with other wickedness has
permeated and overtaken our society at this hour. Professed Christians are supposed to stand out against the backdrop of such a corrupt and consequently crum-
bling society, but are found among the wicked in no few numbers as not only the prophet Jeremiah witnessed of Judah, but others too (see for instance, Micah 3,
7:1-4). Because professed Christian men and pastors are well represented among those practicing sexual immorality which also involves pornography and mastur-
bation (see the Barna.com article), the Lord led me to devote an Appendix in The Strong Man Of God: Back To Basics to help deal with these from a biblical world-
