Thus saith the LORD of Hosts, the GOD of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to My Words? saith the LORD. The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father's commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto Me. I have sent also unto you all My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto Me. (Jeremiah 35:13-15)
The destruction of the city was swift and complete when it came, just as GOD had warned. His warning of the future destruction of this world is just as sure. He is coming again, and will pour out His wrath on all those that have rejected Him to worship themselves, or others, or false gods in their religion. GOD is Holy, and cannot tolerate sIn. He provided Himself in our place to pay for that sIn, but there are those who by not choosing Christ, have already rejected Him and under condemnation. He has warned us, and we are all without excuse, knowing the righteous anger of our Judge and King. Even in the Church we must observe to do all that He has commanded, we trusted Him for our justification, we must continue to trust and obey for sanctification as He conforms us to the image of His dear Son, Jesus Christ until we are glorified in His presence.
That process of discipleship and fellowship with Him only comes to those that believe and receive Jesus Christ by faith in His finished work on the Cross of Calvary. GOD is not willing that any should perish, but wants you to come to the knowledge of the Truth. He loves you, and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. You must repent, surrender to Him on His terms and be born again. He will give you a brand new life in Him that is abundant and everlasting.
Be obedient to His Command and Commission today.
