Jesus reveals himself to those who did not ask for him, is found by those who did not seek him and he came to all nations which did not call his name. He is looking for a man who;
Walk in ways not good, pursuing their own imaginations.
Who continually provoke him to his face, offering sacrifices in gardens and burning incense on altars of brick.
Who sit among the graves and spend their nights keeping secret vigil.
Who eat the flesh of pigs, and whose pots hold broth of impure meat.
Who say, ĎKeep away; donít come near me, for I am too sacred for you!í
Such people are smoke in my nostrils, a fire that keeps burning all day.
He says that it stands written before him. He will not keep silent but pay back in full, pay it back into your laps, Ďboth your sins and the sins of your ancestors,Ē says the LORD. Because they burned sacrifices on the mountains and defied me on the hills.
He will measure into their laps the full payment for their former deeds, destine you for the sword, and all of you will fall in the slaughter; for he called but you did not answer, spoke but you did not listen. You did evil in his sight and chose what displeases him.
Isaiah 65:13-15ďMy servants will eat,
but you will go hungry;
my servants will drink,
but you will go thirsty;
my servants will rejoice,
but you will be put to shame.
14 My servants will sing
out of the joy of their hearts,
but you will cry out
from anguish of heart
and wail in brokenness of spirit.
15 You will leave your name
for my chosen ones to use in their curses;
the Sovereign LORD will put you to death,
but to his servants he will give another name.
