Welcome to one of the online diarys of Gloria Poole of Missouri!
It is written, 'moreover the word of THE LORD came unto me, sayng, 'now thou son of man, wilt thou judge the bloody city? Yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominatioss.' Then say thou, 'thus saith THE LORD GOD, 'the city that sheddeth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself to defile herself. Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years; therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries. Those that be near, and those that be far from thee, shall mock thee, which are infamous and much vexed. Behold,the Princes of Israel, every one were in thee to their power to shed blood. In thee, have they set light by father and mother; in the midst of thee have they dealt oppression with the stranger; in thee have they vexed the fatherless and the widow [or women with no husbands] . Thou hast despised mine Holy things, and hast profaned MY Sabbaths. In thee are men that carry tales to shed blood; and in they they eat upon the mountains; in the midst of thee they eat upon the mountains; in the midst of thee they commit lewdness. In thee have they discovered their fathers' nakedness [ Old Testament uses this term to describe incest or children seeing their mother naked since the wife's body 'belongs' to the husband according to scripture.]; In thee have they humbled his sister,his father's daughter [refers to incest] . And one hath committed abomination with his neighbor's wife; and another hath lewdly defiled his daughter in law; and another in thee hath humbled his sister [raped his sister] his father's daughter. In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase; and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbor's by extortion; and hast forgotten ME, saith THE LORD GOD. Behold,therefore I have smitten Mine hand at this dishonorable gain which thou hast made, and at thy blood which hath been in the midst of thee. Can thine heart endure or can thine hands be strong in the days that I shall deal with thee? I THE LORD have spoken it, and I will do it. And I will scatter thee among the heathen, and disperse thee in the countries, and will consume thy filthiness [ungodliness] out of thee. And thou shalt take thine inheritance in thyself in the sight of the heathen, and thou shalt know that I AM THE LORD. "
Ezekiel 22: 1-16,, King James Holy Bible.
Posted here today for obvious reasons--the bloodshed in the US and around the world in the killing centers and in the fields; and the refusal by legislators to outlaw the premeditated killing of innocents in the womb.
