Isaiah 5:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Jude 1:7 – Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Ezekiel 33 King James Version (KJV)
33 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live?
11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.
13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.
14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;
15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.
16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.
18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
20 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.
21 And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten.
22 Now the hand of the Lord was upon me in the evening, afore he that was escaped came; and had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more dumb.
23 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
24 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance.
25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall ye possess the land?
26 Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every one his neighbour’s wife: and shall ye possess the land?
27 Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
28 For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through.
29 Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.
30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord.
31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.
32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.

🎶She calls out to the man on the street
“Sir, can you help me?
It’s cold and I’ve nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?”
He walks on, doesn’t look back
He pretends he can’t hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there
Oh think twice, it’s another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it’s just another day for you,
You and me in paradise
She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she’s been crying
She’s got blisters on the soles of her feet
Can’t walk but she’s trying
Oh think twice…
Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
Oh lord, there must be something you can say
You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she’s been there
Probably been moved on from every place
‘Cos she didn’t fit in there
Oh think twice…🎶
I heard this song on the way home tonight. I absolutely loved everything Phil Collins has put out. My good friend Andrew Lee can nail Phil’s songs on vocals! (And about any other singer you can think of) “Another Day in Paradise” is a protest song recorded by Phil Collins. Produced by Collins along with Hugh Padgham, it was released as the first single from his number one album …”But Seriously” (1989). As with his song for Genesis, “Man on the Corner”, the track has as its subject the problem of homelessness, as such, the song was a substantial departure from the dance pop music of his previous album, “No Jacket Required” (1985). Collins told The New York Times how the song came together, “It was begun at the piano. I started playing and put it down on a tape so I wouldn’t forget it. Then I decided to see what would happen when I started singing. When I began, the words just came out, ‘She calls out to the man on the street.’ I didn’t set out to write a song about the homeless. Those were just the words I happened to sing. It was only then that I decided that was what the song would be about.” Many of the songs from …But Seriously were written in attempt to offset what Collins called middle-of-the-road song choices that made his reputation “a little more trivialized than I wanted to be.” He had just played the title thief in the 1988 adventure comedy Buster, for which he recorded a hit cover of the ’60s pop song “A Groovy Kind Of Love.” He told Musician: “‘Another Day in Paradise’ was chosen because it was a bit different from what had gone on before. It would bring people back to the starting line of remembering what I’m about. I write ‘In the Air.’ I’m quite capable of writing a ‘Two Hearts,’ but let’s not forget I’m also doing this kind of stuff.” Collins sings the song from a third person perspective, observing as a man crosses the street to ignore a homeless woman, and he implores listeners not to turn a blind eye to homelessness because, by drawing a religious allusion, “it’s just another day for you and me in paradise”. This addresses the consequences of ignoring the needy and homeless. It’s a rare Phil Collins hit with a socially conscious message. Many of you know I have a huge heart for the homeless. I will be going soon to http://www.ccolife.org/ I encourage everyone to help the homeless. Collins also appeals directly to YeHoVaH/God by singing, “Oh Lord, is there nothing more anybody can do? Oh Lord, there must be something you can say?” In the bible passage Exodus 3:1-10 we hear the cry of the city builders and listen in to the call of YeHoVaH/God on one mans life that will propel him into the places of seeking Justice. The complete focus of Exodus is found in Exodus 3:1-10 where moses hears the voice of YeHoVaH/God and recives the call to go and fight for justice with Pharaoh. His plan is to free the israelistes who have been made captive and given the role of city builders. By the work of their hands thay have toiled in building Pharaoh’s cities and palaces. The fundamental truth in the passage is that YeHoVaH /God hears their cry and sees their pain. The cry from the heart of the city and the pain from lives in captivity. Phil collins sings “Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do” “Oh lord, there must be something you can say” this is Collins response to homlessness in the city. We are not told what city but hear it is. Collins gives a contextual example of what it looks like and feels like to be homeless in the city. We are left with the question does any one hear and can anyone do something. This is exactly where the burning bush incident is equal. YeHoVaH/God choses Moses to be the instrument of freedom, peace, justice and comapassion. Please no that Yeshua/Jesus still walks the streets of the city calling for people to join Him in caring for the lost, the last, the least and the lonely. Facebook friends, let’s be peole who hear the challenge to work for justice and compassion in the heart of the city. Amen?
I encourage you to look into this ministry as well. https://chicagotinyhouse.org/
