“But you gave the n’zirim (Nazirites) wine to drink and ordered the prophets, Don’t prophecy!”
Amoas 2:12 CJB
Nazirites are supposed to be separated from the world and worldliness, just like us! Here they are given wine to stumble them and keep them from speaking of the LORD’S coming!
People are doing this today by lifting up preachers and teachers who become drunk on popularity and fame, then neglect sharing God’s truths!
“For the time is coming when people will not have patience for sound teaching, but will cater to their passions and gather around themselves teachers who say whatever their ears itch to hear. Yes, they will stop listening to the truth, but will turn aside to follow myths.”
2 Timothy 4:3-4 CJB
Also we see many teachers today, neglecting to teach prophecy about the coming of our LORD, which we all should be looking for! Our hope is in the LORD and spending all eternity with Him, not living in this falling disastrous world!
“For it is in You, Adonai, that I hope . You will answer, Adonai my God.”
Psalm 38:15 CJB
Today, don’t get caught upon the trappings of the world, but instead get caught up in Him!
Have a blessed day looking to the LORD.
