God’s word is flawless and everything that God says will come to fruition. The seasons will change and years will pass but God’s word will remain forever! This is true as it relates to the warnings, directions and rebukes received when one does not adhere to God’s word. In the Bible are several accounts of individuals who went against God’s word concerning specific instructions and received the outlined consequences when one failed to obey.
For example, Ahab coveted Naboth’s vineyard and murdered him. The word of God was given to Ahab forbidding him the permission to take Naboth’s property, but Ahab along with Jezebel rejected God’s word and later obtained the detailed punishment God proclaimed through his prophet Elijah.
In Deuteronomy 28 God informs the children of Israel of the blessings they will receive if they follow God’s word and carefully obey his commands. God also informs them of the curses they will receive if they don’t follow His word or carefully obey His commands.
God’s word clearly states what will happen when one deliberately chooses to reject Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior. “He who believes and trusts in the Son and accepts Him (as Savior) has eternal life [that is, already possesses it]; but he who does not believe the Son and chooses to reject Him, [disobeying Him and denying Him as Savior] will not see [eternal] life, but [instead] the wrath of God hangs over him continually.” John 3:36 AMP.
God is very specific when it comes to His Word and in the Bible we see that everything God says He accomplishes. The Bible is our reference point and it would be wise to examine the outcomes of individuals who adhered to God’s word and the individuals who did not.
The choice is yours, take heed to God’s words today because God will follow through with everything He said.
