God Did That?


Something terrible happened to God's people, and God is the One Who did it. Thousands, if not millions, of God's chosen people were taken into captivity (586 BC). That means people died, others were tortured, some were forever separated from their family. And God did that? Yes. God did that.
and Jehozadak went along when the LORD carried Judah and Jerusalem away into exile by Nebuchadnezzar (I Chron. 6:13).
Who "carried Judah and Jerusalem away into exile?" "The LORD!" You mean God was the One who carried His own people into exile? Yes. God. Granted, He performed His purposes through Nebuchadnezzar, but God was thoroughly in control of the entire situation.

Sin is a serious crime and God will not tolerate the continual rebellion of His people against His covenant. Let us live in the light!
And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God (John 319-21).
