There will come a day when the chance to choose sides is over. There
will be no more picking. You will be on the side of God with His
Angel Armies or not. It will have been your choice. The Word says we
all get to choose. Check this out and pick a side.
that I am making will stand firm before me”
—God’s Decree— “So will your children
and your reputation stand firm.
Month after month and week by week,
everyone will come to worship me,” God says “And then they’ll go out and look at what happened
to those who rebelled against me. Corpses!
Maggots endlessly eating away on them,
an endless supply of fuel for fires.
Everyone who sees what’s happened
and smells the stench retches.” Surf to: http://www.freshc.org for a Fresh Connection…

I enjoy reading the Message version, too. I like to compare the different versions so I can get a better overall “feel” for what is being said.
I once read a book by F. Peretti called, “The Oath”. This last part of the verses you posted reminds me of it. In the book, those who decided to do whatever they wanted, regardless of the consequences (and rejecting the good) had a black mark that formed on them…and smelled bad. Then it spread. It was very obvious to everyone that this person was going to die. There was only one who avoided death – and that was b/c he repented and turned back to God.
Sorry…went off on a tangent. 🙂
Loved the Peretti series! I think it helped form a more real imagination of how the evil ones may choose to work. I fell in love with the Word through a tough struggle and consuming the Message version.
