I have been touched today by a scripture I read this morning. Jeremiah 48:36, God speaking, “So my heart sounds for Moab like flutes, and My heart sounds for the men of Qir Heres like flutes. Therefore the wealth they made shall be gone..” I opened YouTube and listened to the sound of a flute as I sat meditating on that scripture. I challenge you, dear reader, to do the same. Feel the loving heart of God who has given up on any segment of people or culture who have turned their backs on him choosing other gods instead. Just a chapter or two before that, Jeremiah is telling of the people who are choosing the “Queen of Heaven” over the true God. Unbelievable!
What if in the writings of the future, I were to read that God says, “So my heart laments for the USA, and the men of Oklahoma City, as the sound of a flute.” (Of course, you can fill in the name of the city with your own dwelling place.) From my heart today “Oh, America, my land, my home, my cradle of love – return to Him while we yet have a choice.” We can never be saved by the “Queen of Heaven” or any worthless idol no matter how beautiful and enticing she/it appears to be.
