Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet My people have forgotten Me days without number. Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways. Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these. Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely His anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned.
“Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet My people have forgotten Me days without number.”
When women prepare for the hour of marriage, they hardly ever forget their ornaments, but yet we as a nation have forgotten the God of Israel. Not only have we forgotten Him, now our nation seems to relish in the idea that we do not need God in our nation. This is why president Obama said that we are not a godly nation. We cannot and must not be an Obama-nation.
Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love?
Our nation has become skilled in adultery, forsaking the idea of marriage by living together with-out a marriage covenant. Not only are we guilty of this atrocity, but we have taught this to our children that we have raised up in these homes. I am not saying any of this to condemn anyone, I am just stating facts. I myself lived with my husband before we were married. I had four children out of wedlock by another man, their father who has since died. Things just have a way of going south and we seem to flow with the tide.
I can look at the news and see that the tide is gaining momentum and this is happening more than ever, folks living together, rather than instilling a covenant of marriage.

I met a wonderful lady who used to walk to the Oregon State Capitol every night and say a prayer in front of every flag there that represents all states in the union that abortion would be abolished in that state. She still may be doing this, I haven’t spoken to her in awhile.
This same women makes skirts out of different materials, in different shapes and patterns, but in the front, near the bottom of the womb entrance, she always places a piece of red material. I wondered this morning if she had read this verse. Perhaps this is where she got the idea to make them?
We don’t hide the fact here in America that children are aborted on a daily basis.
“Tens of millions of unborn children have been aborted for the sake of the convenience of the mothers or of society. Abortion advocates talk about the “right to choose” to justify this practice, but little is said about the unborn child’s right to choose. The mother has had the opportunity to make many choices in her life, but for the sake of the convenience of the mother, every choice that the baby could ever make in his or her life is taken away. Despite the “pro-choice” label abortion advocates place on their position, abortion is NOT “pro-choice”. It is anti-choice because it robs the unborn child of every choice he or she could ever make. God has harsh words for those who have innocent blood on their hands, and you can’t get more innocent than a baby who has never even had the opportunity to choose between right and wrong. “ ~ Author un-known
“Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned.”
We can claim that we are innocent all we want, but we are not. Even those who sit quietly in church pews are guilty of this atrocity because we are not standing up in defence of these innocent babies who have yet to breathe life.
1st John 1:8 ~ ¶ If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Proverbs 28:13 ~ ¶ He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
1st John 1:9 ~ If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
2nd Chronicles 7:14 ~ If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
One thing that has always stood out to me in this verse is that it is ‘His people’ Not your average Joe. It is the people who claim to be children of the God of Israel , those that are called by His name. This means that those who are called into servant hood by the God of Israel, are the ones who are to humble themselves and seek His face in prayer and supplication, turn from our wicked ways so that Yahushua, whose name we pray in, will hear from heaven, will forgive us and heal this nations land.
How is all that for a morning awakening in your spirit? Sure shook my world…….
“And whereas, it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history: that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.” ~ Abraham Lincoln March 30, 1863
