The word of the Lord came to me saying:
Oh how my children love to worship me! They love to come together to sing and dance! They come together to make their music and play their instruments! They come together to clap, to shout, to rejoice! They love to loudly declare and proclaim and heap blessings upon blessings upon blessings upon themselves when they continue to heap iniquities upon iniquities upon iniquities on themselves! They are foolish children; they know not how to worship me.
They are unrighteous children and their weights are imbalanced. They love to keep more weights for themselves and so they are stumbling blocks to themselves by their own unrighteousness. They know not that their cup of iniquities is filling up; drop by drop by drop, deed by deed by deed, word by word by word. Where are those who fear me? Where are those who love me? Where are those who worship me in the spirit? Where are those who fall on their face to worship me? They only sing and dance and think they are worshipping me. They sing and dance in the flesh, to fulfill the lusts of their own flesh. They love to enjoy themselves in my church but all this and all these children give me no enjoyment. They are but all a bitter taste and a foolishness to me.
There is no reverence for me in my bride but instead there is revelry and a rejoicing for themselves in my church, among my children. How long more do you think I will accept this? You come together to feed yourselves, you come together to comfort each other and comfort yourselves. ‘Oh the Lord blesses me’ you say. ‘Oh the Lord blesses and multiplies you’, the prophets say. I tell you the words of the prophets do not come to pass after months, even after years but you still cannot see that I never gave those words for you to the prophets. You see no blessings upon your life. You see nothing has changed in your lives after the prophets have spoken yet you continue to follow the prophets. You do not follow me. You know the prophets. You do not know me. You love the prophets. You do not love me. You are foolish children.
You have turned my church into a temple; a place to seek your own solace and seek blessings for yourselves, a place to fulfill your own desires. You give so that you may get something in return. You give not out of the abundance of your hearts. Have I not said from the beginning that if you will obey me and keep my ways, I will bless you? Do you not hear those words? The prophets cannot bless you and the church cannot bless you. Only I can bless you. Do you hear? Only I can bless you. But do you listen? Are you listening? Generation after generation after generation you continue to be stiff-necked people. I grow weary of this. I grow weary of your stubbornness and your foolishness.
Listen, my foolish children! Turn away from unrighteousness; clean your hands. Have you not heard I cannot bless those whose hands are not clean? Cleanse your hands and repent from your unrighteous ways. Turn away from the prophets who speak nothing but blessings to you. Turn to me. Learn my ways and keep my ways and I will tell you what you must do and I will bless you. Only I can bless you. And I will bless you so much, you will know that I am the Lord your God and then you will truly know how to worship me and give all the glory to me.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 1 Peter 5:6
