I appointed watchmen over you and said listen to the sound of the trumpet. But you said, we will not listen.Therefore hear this you nations. You who are witnesses, observe what will happen to them. Hear, you earth I am bringing disaster on these people because of the fruit of their schemes.Because they have not listened to my word. And rejected my law.What do I care about incense from Sheba or sweet calamus from a distant land? Your burnt offerings are not acceptablee your sacrifices do not please me.
This God said because the people kept messing up. Can you imagine? The people did not have to want for anything. Spoiled to the max. And there you have it, God got angry and told them what would happen to them. God does this so many times in the old testament. He finally shakes his head and says he has to do something different. And this is where Christ comes in. And is made to suffer horribly because God knew we as men and women would sin over and over again.
