THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. (Luke 1:5-10)

Text: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. (Revelation 5:10)

Tweet: All God’s priests have their lot in life; that is, their allotted service. It’s when we aspire to something outside the parameters of God’s plan for our lives that we doom ourselves to endless disappointment, discouragement, depression, and despair.

Text: To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. (Isaiah 1:11-17)

Tweet: The practice of religion by the unrepentant is repugnant to God.

Text: Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. (Isaiah 5:25)

Tweet: When God’s hand is stretched out to us, but slapped away by us, it will be raised in judgment upon us.

Text: I have stretched out My hands all day long to a rebellious people, who walk in the way which is not good, following their own thoughts.
(Isaiah 65:2)
Text: But to Israel he says: All day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and defiant people. (Romans 10:21)
Text: Jerusalem, Jerusalem! She who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her. How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, yet you were not willing!
(Matthew 23:37)

Text: Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? (Job 38:2)

Text: Then Job answered the Lord, and said, I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. (Job 42:1-6)

Tweet: In Job 38:2, God asked Job how he dared to question divine wisdom with ignorant human words. After getting what he demanded, an audience with the Almighty to argue his righteousness and God’s injustice, Job repented of his hubris and pleaded to God for divine pardon. In the end, Job, who admitted that he had dared to counsel the omniscient and omnipotent One, acknowledged, having personally encountered God for himself, that he knew nothing and God knew everything. Furthermore, Job confessed his abhorrence of himself for having been so arrogant as to argue with the Almighty—He who not only knew everything, but could also do anything.

Text: Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:21)

Tweet: Woe to him who believes his “wisdom”—fallible opinions—superior to God’s Word—His infallible oracles . Such woeful foolishness proves one to be a human nitwit who believes he can outwit divine omniscience .
