Modern Baal Worship

2 Kings 17:7 And they burned their sons and their daughters as offerings, and used divination and sorcery, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking him to anger.

What was Ahab thinking? I would never sacrifice my child to the altar of Baal.

1 Kings 16:30. And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that [were] before him.

Take notice of every word. Ahab did evil in the sight of the LORD. It was obviously not evil in his own sight.

1 Kings 16:31 And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat,

It was a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam.

1 Kings 16:31 that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.

16:32 And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.

16:33 And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.

What an unstable man. If you were a king, would you bow down to a graven image? Would you go to the bush and choose some wood and engrave it and bow down to it? That seems ridiculous. It would be the most unrealistic thing a human could do. It doesn’t even enter into common sense. Would you pick up a stone and carve it and bow down to it every morning?  Are there any here that worship Baal? Shall I finish speaking now? We need to understand Baal worship.

In rejecting the truth, men reject its Author. In trampling upon the law of God, they deny the authority of the Law-giver. It is as easy to make an idol of false doctrines and theories as to fashion an idol of wood or stone. GC 583.1

I thought making an idol out of wood or stone would be fairly difficult.  I wouldn’t have the skill to do it and it wouldn’t even look nice. The statement says doctrines and theories. For Ahab it was an easy matter for him to go and worship Baal but it in the sight of the Lord it was wickedness and in Ahab’s sight it was not wicked.

By misrepresenting the attributes of God, Satan leads men to conceive of Him in a false character. With many, a philosophical idol is enthroned in the place of Jehovah; while the living God, as He is revealed in His word, in Christ, and in the works of creation, is worshiped by but few. GC p 583.1

Do you worship God or Baal?

Though in a different form, idolatry exists in the Christian world today as verily as it existed among ancient Israel in the days of Elijah. The god of many professedly wise men, of philosophers, poets, politicians, journalists–the god of polished fashionable circles, of many colleges and universities, even of some theological institutions–is little better than Baal, the sun-god of Phoenicia. GC p 583.1

In the dark ages they thought that the earth was the centre of the universe and everything evolved around the earth but in ancient Israel they knew that the earth rotated around the sun. Satan uses a truth and turns it into lies. Baal was the sun god and the centre to everything man observed. Everything was centred around Baal. It was the hub. It was the main attraction as all the celestial bodies circle this great ball of fire, Baal. Like our belief of God we get to become partakers with the divine nature. By worshiping Baal they were to be partakers of the centre of the universe. There was a profit to be made by worshiping Baal in the minds of ancient Israel.  To be the centre with their god whom they worshipped. They would appease Baal by their works and gain a substantial position with him. Even today in the high ranks of this world, the elitists believe that God is in everyone. There is divinity and a high standard that exists in everyone and in Baal worship this was the thing they observed. They saw the sun and the centre of everything they could comprehend. They wanted to be part of that hub, they wanted everything to revolve around them so they really had to appease Baal. With every false religion the father is Satan.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

To be the centre and have everything revolve around you, isn’t that what Satan wanted? Everything to revolve around him instead of Jesus. Why does everything have to revolve around Jesus, can’t he share it?  He thought I’ll make a religion that had all my subjects the centre of the universe with me. So all these false idolatrous understandings came through. Satan thought what a better god than the sun god, everything revolves around the sun. The sun gives warmth to the people so it doesn’t do them any harm (until the rain stops). There Baal worship began. King Ahab really just wanted to be the centre. He really didn’t want to bow down to a piece of wood. He wanted to be the centre, that’s all. How ridiculous is idolatry that they would take their first born and burn them. Just imagine the stink of it.  It is non-human to do that. But the Word of God says that which was shall be. Tell me, would you do it? No! Where did the mentality come from? God tested Abraham but never required the death of Isaac. God has never required the death of any child and never will but somehow the minds of the people go so crooked that they did that. The Word of God says we are in a worse generation that ever before.  Pick up the sentiments of the prophet Micah as he writes.

Micah 6:6 Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, [and] bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?

6:7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, [or] with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn [for] my transgression, the fruit of my body [for] the sin of my soul?

6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what [is] good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

Do you see the sharp contrast between idolatrous workings and God’s requirements? What shall I do to please God? The nations all around had a mentality of giving something to please Baal.  They offered sacrifices like the Jews did to God. They burnt offerings with goats and lambs to Baal, almost the same, but they put their children in there.  The question is shall I take this first born for the sin of my soul? What does the LORD require of me? The answer is clear. How reasonable is our God. Such common sense, to do justly to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God. That is all he says. Just walk with me you don’t have to kill anyone. You don’t have to make a ridiculous object and bow down to it. Just common sense. Compare a god that requires your children or a god that requires common sense.  There is not even an option. You would be mentally unstable to say Baal literally.  The problem is we are literally unstable.

Isaiah 57:1 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth [it] to heart: and merciful men [are] taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil [to come].

57:2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, [each one] walking [in] his uprightness.

57:3 But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.

57:4 Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, [and] draw out the tongue? [are] ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood,

57:5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?

The picture drawn is the righteous and the ridiculous slaying their children in the rocks. If you were walking along in a rocky place and you saw a person cutting their child you would have nightmares about what was going on. In verse 5 it says they were enflaming themselves. What does the word enflame mean? It can have a few different meanings. Firstly burning but what else does it mean? If you have a sore throat and it gets enflamed what does that mean? It gets worse. If you are ill and are enflamed you are not healing. It is opposite to healing. It is dying. How can someone sacrifice their own comfort, their own family and their own reason to a god that does not listen and cannot see? The fact is we do it today. How many times to we enflame ourselves and do things to our own hurt because it is fun? How often do we do that? Do we do things that are detrimental to our health because it is fun so we are the centre of the universe?  When I was in high school I did some silly things to impress people so I got the recognition. I hurt myself, I put myself down and I made people laugh at the cost of my own dignity. I went to extremes to be with Baal. How ridiculous but the thing is in our own eyes. There is no evil, it’s a light matter. Just to be light about it but in the sight of the LORD what is it? EVIL. Enflaming ourselves, making ourselves worse, corrupting ourselves, just in the name of pleasure and to gain influence.  This is Baal worship.

But notice it is not just enflaming yourself, it is the death of your first born. Fair enough to be the centre of the universe in your own mind you extend yourself for that, but expending innocent children would you do it? Would you slay your child for the sake of fun and for the sake of being the centre of the universe?  That is heathenism to its worse degree. Satan wanted to be the centre to the expense of the Son of God himself, the angels and to the expense of you and me. To the expense of everyone even himself just so he could be the hub. This Satan offers his subjects. If you worship me you will be popular. It is programmed into society today if you do certain things you will be popular. You will be the hub with me says Satan. That is the religion of the devil. To contrast this read 1 John and see the common sense of our saviour and our King. The Word of God is invigorating. You read a text and it is so precise you don’t have to add to it. It contrasts error so clearly – reading.

1 John Hereby perceive we the love [of God], because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down [our] lives for the brethren.

That is the total opposite to I will lay your life down for me. God will lay down HIS life so we can be partakers of the divine nature, not the other way around. God does not say you have to kill yourself and hurt yourself then I will think about it and be immoral to be with me. It says hereby perceive we the love [of God], because he laid down his life for us and we ought to lay down [our] lives for the brethren.  When two parents decide to have children the decision has to be made with the parent’s knowledge that it is their responsibility all their lives. There is an understanding in many cultures especially in the eastern world that ‘we will have lots of children so when they grow up they support us and feed us’ and therefore they have many children. To sacrifice of children so you are the hub. As Christians we are to raise families at the expense of ourselves. We are to expend ourselves for the salvation of our children. Not to have children for our own pleasure. It is the culture in many countries today that the more children you have the more you will be looked after for when they grow up and work they will work for you like little employees. Indeed there is a truth in that. The children are to honour the parents as long as they live but idolatry has gotten into it.  In regard to slaying your first born as Baal requires, there is a principle written in Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 17:1, 2 The sin of Judah [is] written with a pen of iron, [and] with the point of a diamond: [it is] graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars; Whilst their children remember their altars and their groves by the green trees upon the high hills.

Parents Sacrificing Their Children

The parents sin in written in their body and children remember those things which they have done.  This is the law of hereditary when you commit a sin even though the child was not there they will remember but not so much as in a memory, but something that craves inside them. What we do is to the detriment of our children.

In past generations if mothers had informed themselves in regard to the laws of their being, they would have understood that their constitutional strength, as well as the tone of their morals and their mental faculties would in a great measure be represented in their offspring. Their ignorance upon this subject where so much is involved is criminal. Many women never should have become mothers. Their blood was filled with disease transmitted to them from their parents and increased by their gross manner of living. The intellect has been brought down and enslaved to serve the animal appetites, and children born of such parents have been poor sufferers, and of but little use to society. . . .  HL 151.3

These are hard words.  Many a mother should never have become mothers because of what they have done for pleasure, relaxation or fun at the expense of their first born who becomes useless to society. Jesus even said to some people it was better if you had never been born.  They are hard words to a human being but when the human being has been slashed burned and cut by the indulgence of parents they are dead. You have offered your child to the god of Baal.  This rocks my system because I’m eating it. To a certain degree I’m suffering for my offering to Baal. What I have done in the past never leaves outside of God’s religion. Heavy words but true to remember. What has been engraved in the heart, your actions no matter whether you are two, twenty, or two hundred, whatever you are doing is engraved and will come through your offspring. It was once said to me the world needs my off spring. I thought that was an interesting contemplation.  What sort of offering would come from such a mentality?

There Is Reason for Double Understanding and Patience.–Fathers and mothers may study their own character in their children. They may often read humiliating lessons as they see their own imperfections reproduced in their sons and daughters. While seeking to repress and correct in their children hereditary tendencies to evil, parents should call to their aid double patience, perseverance, and love. AH 173.

Do you know why it says double patience?  You are dealing with you and them. They are still themselves, they still have their own choice but you are in there as well. Double patience.  This is the sacrifice made to Baal enflaming yourselves physically by disease, degeneracy and no mental capacity to think, you then need double patience on top of your degeneracy when you have had children all for a bit of fun.

Baal Worship Still Exists Today

Children still get slain by their parents yet no one is considered mental nor unreasonable. You think you are reasonable. It sits lightly in our eyes but in the Lord’s eyes it is EVIL. This is Baal worship.

When a child reveals the wrong traits which it has inherited from its parents, shall they storm over this reproduction of their own defects? No, no! Let parents keep a careful watch over themselves, guarding against all coarseness and roughness, lest these defects be seen once more in their children. {AH 174.1} Manifest the meekness and gentleness of Christ in dealing with the wayward little ones. Always bear in mind that they have received their perversity as an inheritance from the father or mother. Then bear with the children who have inherited your own trait of character. {AH 174.2}

What a nice inheritance to give your children.  We love our children. We read in the Old Testament the vast amount of money, land and goods they gave their children which was a blessing. Moses blessed the children of Israel as an inheritance. Jacob even lied to get it and today its, “Here children, here is some trash, that is our inheritance for you.”  How insensible unrealistic Baal worshipers.

Parents must trust implicitly in the power of Christ to transform the tendencies to wrong which have been transmitted to their children. {AH 174.3}

Have patience, fathers and mothers. Often your past neglect will make your work hard. {AH 174.4}

See that hard work. That is the hard work the Baal worshipers had to do. When you come out of Baal worship you still have consequences of worshiping because your children have been sliced and cut up. Have patience.

Deal wisely and tenderly with your children. AH 174.4

What a depressing state to find out that everything we do is to self-glorify our being.  That is Baal worship to be the sun that we worship. To be the main star, the main attraction. The main star in our solar system is the sun. The main star is Baal. There are many stars in this world that are just a reflection of Baal. That is all they are. It is anything to do with self-glorification and pride. That is Baal worship because that is everything that has to do with Baal and the devil to be egocentric. It’s not so much the sun, but we are the centre every celestial being revolves around. Our children at the cost of their lives revolve around us just to get a bit of pleasure and satisfaction. Can we break these idols and bash them down?

How Do We Get Rid Of Baal Worshiping?

1 Kings 15: 11 And Asa did [that which was] right in the eyes of the LORD, as [did] David his father.

15:12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

15:13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from [being] queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt [it] by the brook Kidron.

Has your father or mother built an idol that is in your grove or presence that you are suffering under? Consider your hereditary tendencies and your self-egocentrism’s. Has that been put there by your father or your mother? How did you get to worship Baal? How did it all happen? How did we get so wrapped up with our ego and ourselves? How did that happen? Think about it. Has your mum and dad built an idol? They may have repented from it but it is still there. Yes we can build idols and we can pull them down. But can we pull some down that we didn’t even put up that we got when we were born.

I used to say, I don’t have to teach my daughter to be naughty but I taught her before she was born. I taught her in my loins. There is a text there that says Levi paid tithe to Melchisedec through the loins of Abraham. How can that happen? Levi pay tithe through the loins of Abraham.  It is a reality that what you do comes through to our children. Have we built an idol that has come through our loins into our children? Asa removed all the idols that his father’s made. Who made them? Fathers plural. It goes back a long way and also his mother.  He even removed her from being queen.  That is a bit rude, No it is not because she had made an idol in a grove and Asa destroyed it by the brook Kidron.

1 Kings 15:13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from [being] queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt [it] by the brook Kidron.

Let us break our parent’s idols. What our parents have done to excite us, to produce in us this tendency to worship Baal, let us break it down by the brook Kidron. Let us do it. It is pretty difficult. When your parents have made an idol they obviously like it and you come and break it down. What do you think Asa’s mother said when she was no longer queen? Do you think there was still in good connection? No, no It takes moral strength and determination to turn against your own family because they have caused you to worship Baal. Smash them and say these are my father’s idols and smash them and say these are my mother’s idols and smash them and then you had better run before you get hurt because they will get very upset. I can understand why Elijah ran he just killed 400 of Jezebel’s prophets. It was not a good thing to do in Jezebel eyes but can we do it. Can we break our parent’s idols? Our parents may have already repented of them and if we do it, it will be to their pleasure but if they are still worshiping those idols it will be very hard for them. This is what Asa did. There is another reality.

Smashed Into Dust

2 Kings 23:12 And the altars that [were] on the top of the upper chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made, and the altars which Manasseh had made in the two courts of the house of the LORD, did the king beat down, and brake [them] down from thence, and cast the dust of them into the brook Kidron.

How did it go into the brook Kidron as dust? Mark that word dust. King Josiah broke down his father’s idols. The idols of his parents were smashed into dust and taken to the brook Kidron.

1 Kings 18: 40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

Kishon is the same brook as Kidron. The brook Kidron is on the border between the wilderness and the Promised Land. They took to this brook all the dead and if anyone went past there they were going to die basically. On the other side was the holy land and it is the threshold between the living and the dead. No dead thing can come into the land of the living. It had to be taken back to the threshold and killed there. When we break down our self-idol, we need to go to the brook Kidron to the threshold of the living and the dead and die there. Jesus died at the threshold of the living and the dead without the camp and He was made dust for us. He took our idols down there and killed them. The idols of our working he took to the book Kidron the prophets and the egocentric humanity he took and wiped it into dust and he was resurrected back into the land of the living. This is so encouraging that we can break down the idols and we don’t have to be slave to the sun god and we don’t have to impress people at the cost of our own dignity and the cost of our children and of any unreasonable act. We do not have to do it. God requires us to do mercy and justice and walk humbly with him.

Reformers Are Around the Bend

That is what God asks but somehow humanity sees that any reformer is around the bend and that normal humans that do all these things are normal. It is the most mind twisting exercise to think that someone will say ‘What! Your children don’t watch TV? What are you doing to them? You are depriving them of educational programs!’ My neighbours give me a hard time because I don’t watch TV. I was actually shocked how they even know I don’t have a TV. Who are they even to come and talk to me about what I do in my own home? But somehow I’m around the bend and unrealistic because I don’t have a shrine of Baal in my own home. Would you put an axe through a TV in your own home? Would you ever do that? Your parents might get upset but would you?  The LORD would be happy with all the TV’s being broken because that is the hub, the TV.  Whatever comes through we become. We become like little robots getting programmed through this medium. It is a medium as in the spirit world there are mediums. The media is a medium and the stars that are on the medium are just reflections of Baal. It is all idolatry and people give me a hard time over it. I do not say anything; I don’t tell them they are heathen, idolatrous and wicked. I don’t say that but somehow they think I am depriving my children.  But the LORD says do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with thy God. The fact that God has said that gives me great relief because I know in the sight of God I can be reasonable.

Isn’t that a blessing that we don’t have to be lunatics? This is reality. Let us make these idols into dust. When the calf was made at the base of Mt Sinai what did they do to the calf? They ground it into dust. Now some of that metal that was in there you may think don’t grind it, make it into something else to the glory of God. It was just ground into dust.  God is at war with Baal. God will recompense Baal and any of his worshippers and Baal being the devil will die. God is a jealous God. He sees the ridiculous requirements of Baal and he will kill and destroy Baal. The vengeance of God’s consuming fire will consume anything that is not reasonable.

Matthew 21: 44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone (talking of himself) shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Tell me, where is Baal enshrined? In the heart. If God wants to get Baal out of your heart he must break you to get him out. We sometimes put things in a moneybox and we have to break it to get it out. In this case it’s something really bad and God has to break you to get it out. But what if you don’t want it out? He hates Baal and the wrath of God is against Baal and his worshippers and anyone who holds onto Baal will be ground into powder. Where about? At the Brook Kidron. You can die at the Brook Kidron with Jesus and be broken and you will come through with Jesus into the land of the living. But if you don’t you will go to the same place but you will be pushed out to the other side to the land of the dead. This is what destroying Baal is all about and Christ is saying on him we will be broken. Have you ever noticed when you are listening to a sermon and you hear something that really hits hard at you?

Sometimes we blame the preacher but that hitting is the arrow of God at Baal. That is what it is. God despises Baal and he gets his arrows and he sees Baal. He loves the human but he sees Baal and he despises Baal and aims and shoots his arrows at Baal and we interpret in our own eyes that the preacher is having a go at me or say I’m so offended. You have hurt me and you have hurt Baal. We are all little Baal’s. God is going to shoot Baal. The fiery darts are quenched reasonably easily with God’s armour.

God Is Shooting Arrows

The indulgence of lustful appetite wars against the soul; it is a constant hindrance to spiritual advancement. Those who yield to these lower impulses bear an accusing conscience; and when strait truths are presented, they are ready to take offense. They are self-condemned, and think that these subjects have been purposely selected in order to reprove them. CTBH 152.3

He said that just to get at me. He designed that just for me he knows me. How dare he shoot at Baal in me. That is what we perceive.

They feel grieved and injured, and withdraw themselves from the assemblies of the church. CTBH 152.3

Have you ever seen people leave the church because they are offended? You know that is no reason to leave the church. That is the wrong reason to leave. There is no reason to leave God’s church but a very wrong reason to leave because you have been wounded. I like Baal too much and I want to protect him.

Then the conscience is not so disturbed. Thus they soon lose their interest in the meetings, and their love for the truth. If these will crucify fleshly lusts, the arrows of truth will pass harmlessly by them. CTBH 152.3

If the idol is not in there, there is nothing for God to shoot at because he has died for us and laid down his life for us that we may have eternal life and if that idol is gone they will go harmlessly past us into our friends or into others but they won’t hit us and we won’t be offended.

I’ve sat in sermons and thought wow this sermon is brilliant and I’ve come out and everyone says oh that hurt and I thought it was wonderful.  If we can sit through sermons and not get offended that is a blessing. It is a post sign along the way that is what it is. It says

“But while they indulge lustful appetite, and thus cherish their idols, they make themselves a mark for the shafts of truth; if the truth is spoken at all, it must wound them.  {CTBH 152.3}

Sometimes we can parrot things that we are meant to do. Oh you should do this and this and this. But it should not be said at all.

If the truth is spoken at all, it must wound them. God is an accurate shooter. He will not shoot if it will not damage. He has to damage Baal. In an army God is the sniper and he does not miss.  CTBH 152.3

If the truth is spoken at all it must wound. That is a command of God. Baal is to die. We are in a war against Baal. Are you on the LORD’s side in this war? If you are, they will go past you harmlessly.

God’s plan is not to send messengers who will please and flatter sinners: he delivers no messages of peace to lull the unsanctified into carnal security. But he lays heavy burdens upon the conscience of the wrongdoer, and pierces his soul with sharp arrows of conviction. The ministering angels present to him the fearful judgments of God to deepen the sense of his great need and prompt the agonizing cry. CTBH 152.3

The Death Cry

That is a good cry to hear when you are on the enemy’s lines if God shoots Baal and you hear the death cry. When Baal gets shot sometimes we get a bit worse. Concupiscence happens as we are so vulnerable and the death cry happens and we think wow. That cry is a good thing because Baal is dying.

A bare assent to the truth is not Bible religion . . .. There are many Christians whose hearts are encased in a self-righteous armour that the arrow of the Lord, barbed and true, aimed by angel hands, would fail to pierce. The truth glides off, and the soul is not wounded. CTBH 152.3

If Baal is never wounded it is not because God misjudged his arrow it is because we have manufactured a case over him ourselves. Have you ever sat in a sermon and said this is so boring and other people say wow this is invigorating but for some reason you leave? That is not hurting Baal. Baal is encased nicely. This is the thing God is aiming at, Baal. Will we open up our hearts to let him get hit? Will we be vulnerable enough to say LORD here is the idol, take it away, crush me pull it out please. The experience you will go through is the experience of Elijah and every earthliness will be taken away and we can ride into the heavenly chariot to go home.

In all this understanding of Baal worship God is says “offer your bodies a living sacrifice for this is your reasonable service”. Baal says, ‘Offer your children, for this is an unreasonable service. Offer your health and offer your schooling’ or whatever it maybe just to have a bit of fun and you are worshipping a god that is deaf and he can’t even hear. Elijah mocked them and said maybe your God is asleep or maybe your god has gone on a trip somewhere. What is your god doing is he deaf? Baal is deaf, he does not hear you. When you cry I’m not the centre anymore Baal does not care. He doesn’t care about his subjects, he just wants people to die with him that is all.

A Deaf or a Listening God?

I want to present to you the ear of the LORD and how ready he is to hear the death cry. His ear is inclined. The psalmist is praising his reasonable God.

Psalms 116:2 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice [and] my supplications because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon [him] as long as I live.

116:3The sorrows of death compassed me,” He is having a death cry. but he says I love the LORD because he hears me.

When we have sinned utterly and transgressed and done a worse sacrifice to Baal whether it be drugs, bad behaviour or whatever it may be God will hear your death cry. He has inclined his ear. There is a verse that says, “He inclined His ear and heard.” It gives a representation that his ear was inclined before he even heard anything. He was actually waiting and listening for his children.  Baal didn’t even hear when they were on top of the altar screaming as he didn’t hear them but God is already waiting to hear you. He is already waiting to hear the death cry. I love the LORD.

Amen.
