"Speak to us pleasant words."

- Isaiah 30:10 KJV

We have become an ear tickling generation, and not just the people of the world but a multitude within the church. Of course, this was foretold in the Scripture. We have been warned that there will be those who “by their smooth and flattering speech will deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.” How will they deceive them? They will tell them what they want to hear! Therefore, “they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires.” Jeremiah wrote, “Whether it is pleasant or unpleasant, we will listen to the voice of the Lord our God.” The Word of the Lord tells us we are all sinners deserving of death and eternal condemnation. Those are very unpleasant words. “Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” The most pleasant words you will ever hear. Be encouraged!
