Visit us online at www.telehelppublications.com/Christianbookstore.html Thought For Today - April 7 Righteous or Wicked? "Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe to the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3: 10-12. Is this not true today in the world, and in our country, and in our homes ,that children are our oppressors, and that women have the rule over us? This was never intended by God to be. God's plan for a happy and harmonious life is for children to be in subjection to their parents, and to be brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and for wives to lovingly follow the leadership of godly husbands or fathers. The situation in our homes and country today is, I believe, partially the judgment of God on those who have wickedly fallen away from him. Verse 16 to the conclusion of Isaiah chapter 3 describes the revealing, haughty attire, and attitude of women in the world at the time it was written, but it also is descriptive of many today.. Instead of being loving wives, and mothers and sweethearts, they are for the most part, scheming, arrogant, and boldly aggressive. "Moreover the Lord saith, because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts. In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon, the chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, the bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, the rings and the nose jewels, the changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins, the glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vales. and it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness, and instead of a stomacher a girdling of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty. Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy might in the war. and her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground." Isaiah 3: 16-26. Could this be a warning for us today as well as it was in Isaiah’s day? Posted by: Telehelp Publication's Christian Bookstore - www.telehelppublications.com/Christianbookstore.html
