MOAB HAS BEEN AT EASE FROM HIS
YOUTH....HE HAS SETTLED ON HIS DREGS AND HAS NOT BEEN
EMPTIED FROM VESSEL TO VESSEL NOR HAS HE GONE INTO
CAPTIVITY THEREFORE HIS TASTE REMAINED IN HIM AND HIS
SCENT HAS NOT CHANGED....
|● "Moab has been at
ease from his youth"......
Often we hear Australia being called 'the lucky country'
well we all know there is no such creature called 'luck'.
We are either blessed or cursed creatures...amen? Moab
was an ancient kingdom before Israel who enjoyed good
living, wanted for nothing, was surrounded by powerful
neighbours and compared with other countries was
small....kind of a lucky country, what ya reckon?
● "He has settled on his dregs and has not been
emptied from vessel to vessel".
Moab changed not for nothing, never really did Moab ever
have any serious unsettlings in comparison to Israel.
And the same with the 'luck country-Australia',
compared with the third world, middle east etc.
As wine settles on the dregs not racked off or drawn off
by which it retains its strength and body. Even so, the
Church in Australia and Australia itself has been
unruffled, unquestioned, without change, dormant. And
God Almighty has been one big teddy bear, who is
dictated to by a nation of unGodly, ungrateful,
unbelieving, unloving hypocrites who think because they
are part of an organisation, have social acceptance, the
favour of men and the malpractices of the majority
behind them that they are going to enter the .....New
Jerusalem...I can't see how.....Proverbs 8:17.
A BURNING LIGHT DENOTES SINCERITY, PAINTED FIRE MAY BE
MADE TO SHINE BUT THAT WHICH BURNS IS TRUE
|● "Nor has he
gone into captivity".....
Moab never received the treatment that Israel had to put
up with. Yet Moab was an Idolatrous Nation. Yes, that's
right, just like Australia and just like the church in
Australia right now.....Idolatrous!....idolatry,
witchcraft, rebellion and stubbornness are all of the
same family........1 Samuel 15:23.
Rebellion and his/her family bring not liberty but
captivity and the church is being held 'captive'
this very day by rebellion and his/her family. The
country of Moab rested on it's dregs and drew all it's
strength from these dregs, like unracked wine sits upon
sediment. Moab, like Australia was secure and sensual in
● "His taste remained in him and he did not
Like Moab, Australia, the church can't go on ignoring
the Almighty's Requests, we have come down to the dregs,
the lees, the sediment in this country. There may appear
and I do say 'appear' to be prosperity here and
there in this nation and in the church and this may well
be true but if the people of this nation do not repent
.. saved and unsaved alike, this little prosperity will
be "Blown Away"!...Haggai 1:9B...Selah....click.
This whole message to Moab, to Australia, to the Church,
is to awaken the people not only to 'personal
repentance but also to National repentance' to
prevent their destruction, whether it be spiritual,
physical, financial or eternal ...1 Samuel 15:22B
Traditions step aside, patriotism step aside, peddlers
of God's word step aside, Yahweh is going to ruffle a
few feathers, question a few stewards and change a few
