Why Have You Forsaken Me? {Warning!}

“You have forsaken Me,” says the LORD,
“You have gone backward.
Therefore I will stretch out My hand against you and destroy you;
I am weary of relenting!
Jeremiah 15:6 NKJV

“You have abandoned (rejected) Me,” says the LORD.
“You keep going backward.
Therefore I shall stretch out My hand against you and destroy you;
I am tired of delaying [your punishment]!
Jeremiah 15:6 AMP

The prophetic Word* as given to me, Rosemarie, His servant:

In the hour you know not of the thief will come to destroy. He will rob you of your little faith and leave you begging for mercy. He will destroy your family, finances and your future. Yet, you have decided to keep me in a box hidden away for only those {selective, chosen} to see, but in your quiet time you have done the unthinkable and have abandoned your teaching of the Gospel.
If I were standing in front of you, you would be convinced, but I tell you I have sent many with my truth to warn and lead you from the lies and still you have chosen to cling to pleasure. You have forsaken holiness and sound doctrine for a false teaching and your judgment is nigh. You have chosen to forsake the commandments to keep holy and separate. You have linked yourselves with the world and are now harlots. You have slept with the enemy and your due justice is nigh.
Why have you forsaken me? Why?

I consider this to be a Word from the Lord and I publish it in obedience to the Spirit of God who instructs and guides me as He wills.

How many times will you pursue fame, fortune, and success and forsake the commandments? The Lord is asking questions. He’s also sending a warning.

If you’re on the fence, feeding on a soft gospel or false teaching, doing the unthinkable hiding in secret and showing only Jesus to those some of the time, God is aware and judgment is near.

Still, if you have breath left with your mind made up, return to the Lord before the thief is at your door. Don’t delay! This could be your last chance before it’s too late. God is asking that I do His bidding that you would not perish but have everlasting life. Run to the Lord!

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8

The Lord bless and keep all those who are returning to Him this season. May they find refreshing waters and peace that surpasses all understanding in His care as they read the Word of God and grow in the knowledge of Christ. Being lovers of God rather than lovers of the world!

Study to shew thyself approved unto God.
2 Timothy 2:15a

Jesus the Good Shepherd
John 10
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. 11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.

Life Application Study Bible: A hireling (hired hand) tends the sheep for money, while the shepherd does it for love. The shepherd owns the sheep and is committed to them. Jesus is not merely doing a job; he is committed to love us and even lay down his life for us. False teachers and false prophets do not have this commitment.

Things to Avoid
James 4 AMP
4 You adulteresses [disloyal sinners—flirting with the world and breaking your vow to God]! Do you not know that being the world’s friend [that is, loving the things of the world] is being God’s enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 

Life Application Study Bible: There is nothing wrong with wanting a pleasurable life. God gives us good gifts that he wants us to enjoy (1:17; Ephesians 4:7;1 Timothy 4:4,5). But having friendship with the world involves seeking pleasure at others’ expense or at the expense of obeying God. Pleasure that keeps us from pleasing God is sinful; pleasure from God’s rich bounty is good.

We can be released of our self-centered desires by humbling ourselves before God, realizing that all we really need is his approval. When the Holy Spirit fills us, we see that this world’s seductive attractions are only cheap substitutes for what God has to offer.

The Rich Man and Lazarus
Luke 16
19 “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. 20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, 21 desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’

27 “Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ 29 Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’”
