“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.” Hebrews 10:26-27.
Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading: Isaiah 15-18, and Hebrews 10.
These verses are very blunt. Some may not want to hear them.
I make no claims at being an expositor of Scripture. I pray for insights before I read scheduled chapters and see what turns up from the readings. I say that in advance of trying to understand these verses.
If you have heard the Good News and understand what it means, you thereafter have two options: (1) accept it and move into a new reality, or (2) reject it and continue as you are.
The Good News is that God so loved the world that He made a way for the power of sin to be removed from us. With that sin removed we have new life (free from sin’s power) anda live accordingly.
If you know about the Good News and choose not to believe it then you are living according to you own choosing. You have, by that action, rejected God’s action.
The consequences are spelled out clearly for those who know and ignore. The gift was there in front of you but you chose not to take it. You will face Judgment Day with your sin problem still intact and there are no other ways to deal with it.
The Good News has happened. It will not “unhappen” whether you choose to believe it or not. It is there for the “taking.” Believe it and a new life is opened to you.
“Lord, I ask that Your Good News will resonate in the hearts/minds of every reader. Thanks You that it happened and thank You for the new life that follows it. Hallelujah!”
You have two choices. Consider them carefully.
