God asks: “what will you do?”

stormyGod asks questions.what will you do?” On  ” the days of reckoning”, when adversities and adversaries engulf “like a flood, when disaster comes” and sweep everything away? For each individual, there will be only a day to make decision. For the group of people as a whole, days (of specific length). There is no option to not answer God’s questions.

What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches?
The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?
What will you do on the day of your appointed festivals, on the feast days of the Lord?
The days of punishment are coming, the days of reckoning are at hand. Let Israel know this. Because your sins are so many and your hostility so great, the prophet is considered a fool, the inspired person a maniac.
Hosea 5:9-10 New International Version (NIV)

Ephraim will be laid waste
    on the day of reckoning.
Among the tribes of Israel
    I proclaim what is certain.
10 Judah’s leaders are like those
    who move boundary stones.
I will pour out my wrath on them
    like a flood of water.

Terrors overtake him like a flood; a tempest snatches him away in the night.

All day long they surround me like a flood; they have completely engulfed me.

After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed.

At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood.
Judah’s leaders are like those who move boundary stones. I will pour out my wrath on them like a flood of water.
[ A Prophecy Against Babylon ] A prophecy against the Desert by the Sea: Like whirlwinds sweeping through the southland, an invader comes from the desert, from a land of terror.
As often as it comes it will carry you away; morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through.” The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror.

I will send famine and wild beasts against you, and they will leave you childless. Plague and bloodshed will sweep through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I the Lord have spoken.”

Seek the Lord and live, or he will sweep through the tribes of Joseph like a fire; it will devour them, and Bethel will have no one to quench it.
