The Journey Towards Bethlehem
Year of Our LORD, 12.6.2008
But My people would not hearken to My voice;
and Israel would none of ME.
So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust:
and they walked in their own counsels.
Oh that My people had hearkened unto ME,
and Israel had walked in My ways!
I should soon have
subdued their enemies,
and turned My hand
against their adversaries.
O Gracious Heavenly FATHER,
