What is my beloved doing in my temple as she works out her evil schemes with many? Can consecrated meat avert your punishment: When you engage in your wickedness, then you rejoice
The Lord of Hosts Who calls Israel His beloved, issues a proclamation against the nation that made even me sad. He calls them by their “beloved” name, but tells them the holiness is gone from them because when they do evil, they rejoice. I am sorrowful when I read this. Why give up fellowship with The Living God for something that is empty and worthless.
