The virgin of Provo is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up. For thus saith the LORD unto the inhabitants of Provo, “Seek ye me, and ye shall live.” Seek the Lord, and ye shall live; lest He break out like a fire in the JFSB, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Utah Valley. They hate him that rebukes their unrighteousness on campus, and they abhor him that speaks uprightly.
As they tread upon the dead, and they take from them all that is left (their memories): they have built large social media followings, but they shall not benefit from them much longer; they have posted pleasant memes, but they shall not reap the reward. Because I know your many transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they seek followers for money, and they turn aside the struggling repentant in their midst. Therefore, the prudent shall keep silent; for it is an evil time.
Please Provo, seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in your tweets: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of righteousness left in your empty souls. Therefore the Lord, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus; “Wailing shall be in all social media; and they shall say in all the student housing, “We’re sorry! We repent!” And they shall call the Honor Code Office in mourning, and such as are skillful of lamentation to wailing. And in all Church Campuses shall be wailing: for I will pass through thee,” saith the Lord.
Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! To what end is it for you? The day of the Lord is darkness, and not light for you. You will repent in that day you will be like if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light for you who hate repentance? I hate, I despise your celebrations, and I will not be quiet in your moments of silence at your rainbow protests. Though you offer kind words to sinners and post affirmations for deviants, God will not accept them: neither will I regard the uplifting compliments of your fat beasts. Take away from me the noise of your podcasts; for I will not hear the screeching of your apostasy.
But let #DezNat‘s judgments run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. Have you offered unto God sacrifices and offerings on social media for years, O inhabitants Provo? No, but you have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and the idols of LGBT propaganda, the rainbows of your god, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I cause you to go into captivity beyond with Fat Mike in Reddit, saith the Lord, whose name is The God of Hosts.
