“Where are you, my children?”

Light had turned to darkness that day, petals of brightness slowly faded away, in seclusion they hid, as their Father appeared, asking the question – “Where are you [my children]?” Genesis 3:9 –And down
through time His search for His children has gone through the earth, spoken through His servants – Noah pleading with the people to hear, that the flood would not take
them away, to Jeremiah, the Weeping Prophet, searching for God’s people with

the same question “Where are my children?” But they would not answer, placing him in a pot of boiling oil, for his beseeching cries. And many more men crying to God’s people with the question “Where are you?”

In my last post the Prophet Ezekiel, was used by God using
prophecies. . . .signs and symbols to dramatize God’s message to a an exiled people! Some verses are very graphic, in Chapter 16
Relating a beautiful story of God’s love, in search of His people. . .

Beginning in Verse 1 – And the Lord came…Saying

Thus says the Lord God to Jerusalem. . .

Your birth and your nativity are from the land of Canaan…

As for your nativity on the day you were born, your naval

cord was not cut, nor were you washed in water to cleanse

you, you were not rubbed with salt nor wrapped in

swaddling clothes, no eye pitied you to do any of these

things for you, to have compassion on you, and you were

thrown out into the open field”

And when I passed by you and saw you struggling

in your own blood…I said to you in your blood,

“LIVE!’ Yes I said to you in your blood “LIVE!”

“I made you thrive like a plant in the field, and you grew

and matured and became very beautiful…But you were

naked and bare. When I passed by you again . . .I spread my
wing over you. . . And you became mine, washing you
in water. . . I anointed you with oil and clothed you

with fine linen and covered you with silk, I adorned you

with ornaments, put bracelets on your wrists and a chain

on your neck, and a jewel in your nose…Your fame went

out among the nations…But you trusted in your own beauty”. . .

[Having need of nothing, going about your own ways!]
And once again God searches for His children
with the question “Where are you?”
