AND HE DOES NOT HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING.
He could let us go to our end without saying a word, but He speaks. Today, social media is flooded with living water, God’s word, wisdom to live by.
“Wisdom shouts in the street,
She raises her voice in the public square.
At the head of the noisy streets, she cries out.
At the entrance of the gates in the city she declares her sayings:
GOD’S NOT WILLING THAT ANY PERISH, BUT THAT ALL COME TO REPENTANCE.
How long, naive ones, will you love simplistic thinking?
And how long will scoffers delight themselves in scoffing
And fools hate knowledge?
Turn to my rebuke,
Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you.
I will make my words known to you.
Because I called and you refused,
I stretched out my hand and no one paid attention.
And you neglected all my advice
And did not want my rebuke.
REBELLION BECOMES PERSONAL WITH SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES.
I will also laugh at your disaster.
I will mock when your dread comes,
When your dread comes like a storm
And your disaster comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.
Then they will call on me, but I will not answer.
They will seek me diligently but will not find me,
Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord.
They did not accept my advice,
They disdainfully rejected every rebuke from me.
So, they shall eat of the fruit of their own way,
And be filled with their own schemes.
For the faithlessness of the naive will kill them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them.
BE THANKFUL FOR VERSE 33
But whoever listens to me will live securely
And will be at ease from the dread of evil.” (Proverbs 1:20-33 NASB)
