We Cannot Do that which Defies God! (An Important Read,)

Isaiah 65:1–12  Judgment and Salvation

65:1   I was ready to be sought by those who did not ask for me; I was ready to be found by those who did not seek me. I said, “Here I am, here I am,” to a nation that was not called by<a class="fn" href="http://logoscreative.co/api/bcp-reading.php?passage=Isa.%2065%3A1-12#f1-1&quot; id="fb1-1" title="Or that did not call upon“>1 my name.
  I spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, following their own devices;
  a people who provoke me to my face continually, sacrificing in gardens and making offerings on bricks;
  who sit in tombs, and spend the night in secret places; who eat pig’s flesh, and broth of tainted meat is in their vessels;
  who say, “Keep to yourself, do not come near me, for I am too holy for you.” These are a smoke in my nostrils, a fire that burns all the day.
  Behold, it is written before me: “I will not keep silent, but I will repay; I will indeed repay into their lap
    both your iniquities and your fathers’ iniquities together, says the LORD; because they made offerings on the mountains and insulted me on the hills. I will measure into their lap
payment for their former deeds.”
  Thus says the LORD: “As the new wine is found in the cluster, and they say, ‘Do not destroy it, for there is a blessing in it,’ so I will do for my servants’ sake, and not destroy them all.
  I will bring forth offspring from Jacob, and from Judah possessors of my mountains; my chosen shall possess it, and my servants shall dwell there.
10   Sharon shall become a pasture for flocks, and the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down, for my people who have sought me.
11   But you who forsake the LORD, who forget my holy mountain, who set a table for Fortune and fill cups of mixed wine for Destiny,
12   I will destine you to the sword, and all of you shall bow down to the slaughter, because, when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not listen, but you did what was evil in my eyes and chose what I did not delight in.”

Note from Bob: When we (as a Nation) do not SEEK Him, nor call on his name, We will be judged! He will separate the righteous from the others at His Judgement.
