New International Version (NIV)
11 This is what the Lord says to me with his strong hand upon me, warning me not to follow the way of this people:
12 “Do not call conspiracy (conspiracy will lead away from the lord making it harder to get back)
everything this people calls a conspiracy;
do not fear what they fear,
and do not dread it. (For it will take longer to get back)
13 The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy,
he is the one you are to fear,
he is the one you are to dread.
14 He will be a holy place;
for both Israel and Judah he will be
a stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall. (And every time it takes longer to get up)
And for the people of Jerusalem he will be
a trap and a snare.
15 Many of them will stumble;
they will fall and be broken,
they will be snared and captured.”
16 Bind up this testimony of warning
and seal up God’s instruction among my disciples.
17 I will wait for the Lord,
who is hiding his face from the descendants of Jacob.
I will put my trust in him (Be patient at all times God shows when he knows your ready)
18 Here am I, and the children the Lord has given me. We are signs and symbols in Israel from the Lord Almighty, who dwells on Mount Zion. (Believe all that we do good or bad is for our childrens next generation, our responsibility as adults)
The Darkness Turns to Light
19 When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?
20 Consult God’s instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.
To continue in desolation because of something adults need in my opinion ( gay marriage for one) is unacceptable. An adult is an adult and should act like one, be responsible and learn how to do things to not offend a childs interpretation of Gods will and Gods will was not to have two people of the same sex marry, there is no outcome two of the same sex cannot have their own children and only a waste of Gods precious image ( I am so sorry not meaning to be painful only true.) We are here to bring Gods light through children and if we keep going on and on the way we have been the light will never shine through and just again wasting Gods precious gifts.. A child is a child and needs a responsible God full filling adults to help that child stay innocent and unharmed as when they had been born ( children are born into a sinful world for for heavens sakes not born of sin.. Please step forward and realize we have a huge responsibility as adults especially these days because of how MAN HAS ALREADY DISRUPTED THE UNIVERSE. This is not intended to be a statement to hurt but to only hurt enough to help!!!! So please help AND LISTEN
