Who is God - VII?
“Your holy cities are destroyed…. The… Temple… has been burned down. After all this, Lord, …will you continue to… punish us” (Isa 64:10-12, NLT)? “I was ready to respond, but no one asked for help, …no one was looking for me. …All day long I opened my arms to a rebellious people. But they follow their own evil paths…. All day long they insult me to my face…. These people are a stench in my nostrils, and acrid smell that never goes away” (Isa 65:1-5, NLT). “Lord, you are looking for faithfulness. You have… punished them, but they won’t change! You have destroyed them, but they refuse to turn from their sins. They are determined… not to repent” (Jer 5:3, TLB). “Repent, all of you who forget me…. When God began killing them, they finally sought Him. They repented and took God seriously” (Pss 50:22; 78:34, NLT).
