LORD, “Why are your products purchased today costlier, less healthy, inferior in size, taste, quantity, performance, longevity, etc.?”

By Dr. Jacquelyn Simmons

Scripture: Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage. Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil (Micah 2:1-3).

Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes; That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid, to profane my holy name (Amos 2:6-7).

Dear LORD, our Heavenly Father, if we, Your children, ever needed Your blessings, protection, and guidance, we need them now! Please forgive those of us who are continuously exhibiting blatant disobedience and ignoring Your signs and warnings You sooo lovingly and faithfully have blessed us with. To Your agonizing grief, shedding of tears and dismay, some of us are deliberately traveling down the road to destruction. Alas!!!

As stated in Your subject for this message, those of us who have been deliberately placed at the bottom of their evil contrived economic scale, to our “horror”, have been forced to accept and purchase Your products and distribute them according to their wishes. You entrusted them to distribute them fairly, but as of today, we, Your children are forced to accept exceedingly high priced, poor performance, short longevity, many unhealthy products in order to survive. It is obvious that these measures will escalate in the future. Please have mercy, LORD.
LORD, thank You for hearing our prayers.

In Your Son, Jesus’ Name, Amen.

My friends, a few nights ago, to my horror, this writer again, heard a baby crying. Some of you may remember earlier God’s dire warnings with babies crying… He also warned us during that same time frame He was shedding tears, also, due to His upcoming punishments to some of us, His beloved, disobedient children.

This writer has also been commissioned to tell you to read the entire book of Lamentations, written by one of God’s prophets, Jeremiah, as he cried over God’s destruction of Jerusalem, one of His beloved cities. They refused to obey His commandments, as many of us are doing today.

In chapter 4, a vivid description of how the infants’ tongues clung to the roofs of their mouths due to thirst. The young children asked for bread, but there was none to break for them. He also mentioned that rich people were looking for foods in ash heaps. He added that those slain by the sword were better off than those who died of hunger because it was a quicker death.
Now, my friends, the worst part to this writer is this verse, “The hands of the compassionate women have cooked their own children; they became food for them” (Lamentations 4:9-11). Pray!

P.S. LORD, please let our textual scriptures speak for themselves.
