From my Bible reading today: Isaiah 29: 11-16 “These people make a big show of saying the right thing, but their hearts aren’t in it.”

God impressed upon me that what is written in this scripture is the state of the hearts and minds of many “Christians” today. They align themselves with what they “think” Jesus is and should be instead of Jesus Himself and thus they do what they “think” is right instead of what actually is right. God has shown me that they will pay a heavy price for this if they don’t repent and ESPECIALLY (WOW!!! He emphasized this) those who lead people down the wrong path with their “Christ-like” teachings that are devoid of His truth (I pray and feel sorry for these “Christians”. This made my heart sad because some of them are family and friends…didn’t want to say that but I must be obedient:

Isaiah 29 11-16:

11-12 What you’ve been shown here is somewhat like a letter in a sealed envelope. If you give it to someone who can read and tell her, “Read this,” she’ll say, “I can’t. The envelope is sealed.” And if you give it to someone who can’t read and tell him, “Read this,” he’ll say, “I can’t read.”

13-14 The Master said: “These people make a big show of saying the right thing, but their hearts aren’t in it. Because they act like they’re worshiping me but don’t mean it, I’m going to step in and shock them awake, astonish them, stand them on their ears. The wise ones who had it all figured out will be exposed as fools. The smart people who thought they knew everything will turn out to know nothing.”

15-16 Doom to you! You pretend to have the inside track. You shut God out and work behind the scenes, Plotting the future as if you knew everything, acting mysterious, never showing your hand.
You have everything backward! You treat the potter as a lump of clay. Does a book say to its author, “He didn’t write a word of me”?
Does a meal say to the woman who cooked it, “She had nothing to do with this”?

Be blessed!
