Fighting the good fight and running the race.

Too Late- We’ve Passed the Tipping Point

Then the LORD said to me, “Do not pray for the well-being of these people. If they fast, I will not hear their cry of despair. If they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I will not accept them. Rather, I will finish them off by sword, famine, and plague.” And I replied, “Oh no, Lord GOD! The prophets are telling them, ‘You won’t see sword or suffer famine. I will certainly give you true peace in this place.'” But the LORD said to me, “These prophets are prophesying a lie in My name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a false vision, worthless divination, the deceit of their own minds.  “Therefore, this is what the LORD says concerning the prophets who prophesy in My name, though I did not send them, and who say, ‘There will never be sword or famine in this land.’ By sword and famine these prophets will meet their end.  The people they are prophesying to will be thrown into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword. There will be no one to bury them–they, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. I will pour out their own evil on them.”  — Jeremiah 14
