Turn yourselves and Live
“Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.”
This shows the fairness of God, he reserves executing corporate judgment on a land unless needed. That’s why it so important to pray for others. There can be a small number of evil doers cursing and wreaking mischief. So you need to let your light be shown befor men.
“Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”
While God can can give a new heart and spirit to those injured and under duress, example (Jeremiah 27:7, Ezekiel 36:26) but not to those sinning by choice, probably oppressing others and doing evil. He is asking them to step out of darkness also by a free will choice and repent and start to fear him.
“For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.”
Now is the time to repent, remember Jesus Christ died for many, you can be one of them – just stop being evil.
