When the Israelites rebelled against the Lord and His commands, practicing evil and dealing corruptly as a people and a nation, His charge against their sin and iniquity was stern and absolute. The word of the Lord came to them:
“Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before My eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” – Isaiah 1:16-17
Like the children of Israel, this is where we are in America. We have disobeyed the commands of the Lord and transgressed against His word. Evil is not only practiced, it is celebrated. Corruption is rampant in every sector : national and local government, business, media, entertainment, education, healthcare, even in the Church. Sin is accepted, as iniquity plagues our nation and injustice cries out.
It is time to wash ourselves and remove the evil from the eyes of the Lord. We need an awakening in America again.
