WOE TO THE UNJUST


Habakkuk 2:9


"Woe to him who builds his realm by unjust gain to set
his nest on high, to escape the clutches of ruin!" NIV


"Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his
house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be
delivered from the power of evil!" KJV


There are people in this world, some of which are well
known business, political, sport, and evangelistic leaders
who build their empire in ways that are far from Spirit led.
They aspire to be known and live in an exalted manner
above the common man. These people believe they are
above danger or ruin. They feel secure in their man made
kingdoms. But, they will be exposed for what they are.
Ruin and devastation will come on them unexpectedly
and it will be indescribable tragedy.


Heavenly Father, we pray that we will not be among
those who build their live in this way. Keep us from
that kind of worldly and dangerous living. Help us
to have a heart of compassion for these people so
that we might pray for them and be a witness to them
of the true kingdom of God. Then they will be saved
from the devastation that otherwise awaits them.
In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

I have to agree. I wouldn't be in some of their shoes, for all the money in the world.
