How God views believers

Mo. 10/27/14: Micah 2:4 – 5a                  How are we destroyed?
      In that day one shall take up a proverb against you,
      And lament with a bitter lamentation, saying:
      ‘We are utterly destroyed!
      He has changed the heritage of my people;
      How He has removed it from me!
      To a turncoat He has divided our fields.’”
How are we destroyed? God has changed our heritage.
Tu. 10/28/14: Habakkuk 2:6 – 8                  How long can we plunder others?
      “Will not all these take up a proverb against him,
      And a taunting riddle against him, and say,
      ‘Woe to him who increases, What is not his—how long?
      And to him who loads himself with many pledges’?
      Will not your creditors rise up suddenly?
      Will they not awaken who oppress you?
      And you will become their booty.
      Because you have plundered many nations,
      All the remnant of the people shall plunder you,
      Because of men’s blood
      And the violence of the land and the city,
      And of all who dwell in it.
How long can we plunder others? God will put a stop to us.
We. 10/29/14: Zephaniah 2:15                  How did desolation occur?
      This is the rejoicing city
      That dwelt securely, That said in her heart,
      “I am it, and there is none besides me.”
      How has she become a desolation,
      A place for beasts to lie down!
How did desolation occur? This will occur while the city is rejoicing.
Th. 10/30/14: Haggai 2:3                  How does the temple compare?
‘Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison is this not … as nothing?
How does the temple compare? The new temple is nothing in comparison.
Fr. 10/31/14: Matthew 5:13, 16                  How can salt lose its flavor?
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
How can salt lose its flavor? We, the salt of the earth, don’t proclaim God’s word.
