Sacrifice: God would sacrifice the Jews on his altar Suffering: God would make them suffer grievously Search: God would search for every wicked Jew God would make Judah the sacrifice because Judah did not make sacrifice to God. Indeed, Judah would suffer at God's hands and God would use his enemies to carry out his justice, even while other enemies watched. No one escapes God's judgment, no one!
Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ: 1. Being a member of the church does not mean you are safe. You have to actively and faithfully commit yourself to the Lord's Word and live in obedience. Furthermore, you need to guard yourself against becoming complacent â€“ thinking that life is eat, drink, be merry, and having financial security. All of these things can disappear in a hurry. Let this memorandum sink in.
2. Bring this warning to the church as well. The church seems to be coastingďĽŚadopting new ideas and policies as they wish, and making idols of their numbersâ€¦and preachersâ€¦ but the church too is open to judgment when it embraces idols.
3. Announce the reality of judgment of all men by God so the world might be prepared to meet himâ€¦covered with the blood of Jesus.
Finally, if you are not a Christian and you want to be safe from God's judgment, ask him to make you safe by substituting Christ's death as your death.
