And the sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will
not be heard in you any longer; (no more calls to service and no more worship)
and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; (no more ministry)
and the sound of a mill will not be heard in you any longer; (no more Bread of Life)
and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; (no more Light of the World)
and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer;
(no more Jesus and no more Church)
for your merchants were the great men of the earth, (not men of God)
because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery.
(not amazed by the reality of the One True God's Authority,
Holiness and Faithfulness)
Satan's agenda is finally realized and it's the judgment against him...my challenge is to be aware of his agenda in my life today.
Father God, please help me be faithful in worship and always listening for Your trumpet's invitation to come closer. Let my work promote ministry as You would have ministry look. Help me to be faithful in growing more like Jesus that I may extend Your presence as Sustenance and Light to this ravenous and dark world. May I live as a pure bride-to-be as part of Your Bride, delighted and adoring. May my work and commerce reflect Your Name and glory with integrity, honor and accuracy. Let me never depart from the awe of You; let me live in Your shadow. Please never allow me to be deceived and be a part of the enemy's itinerary.
