The Pomp of the Nations Shall Cease
7/27/12 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
This question was asked: What does The Lord think about the Olympics, and professional sports in general?
Thus says The Lord: It is an abhorrence to Me. For the athletes, who, for a pretense, give thanks in My name, do always offend. For they have surely taken the name of The Lord in vain. For what part do I have in their achievements? What part do I have in their vanity? In their sin?!
And look upon these monstrosities, which man has built for the sake of greed. Look upon the vanity and pomp of all these deceitful nations, and tell Me, what do you see? They enlarge themselves, while the needy are made to live in obscurity; behold they flaunt freedom, yet oppress their own people from birth to the grave! Not one does good - NOT ONE! All have gone the way of Sodom, every one of them follows in the way of Cain! And all, from the least to the greatest, have blasphemed My holy name!
Therefore as I have spoken, I declare it once again:
Let the glory of man be turned backward,
Let every countenance fall and every heart fail,
Until the pride of man is bowed down
And the arrogance of man is utterly humiliated!...
Declares The Lord.
