What Will You Do?

That’s the question that God asks. And it is one He calls upon you to consider before you answer. Here are His words:

The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own authority. My people love it like this, but what will you do at the end of it?       (HCSB, Jeremiah 5:30)

It was a day of lawlessness. The people has ignored God and His prophets as He graciously offered them peace and prosperity {everyone sitting beneath his vine and fig tree) for their love and obedience. But they knew better! Or so they thought. And things seemed to be going quite well—for the time.

They loved it like that: a society in which each one could set his own boundaries with no Word from God saying yes or no to them. It was a time much like ours—don’t you think?

But God will put up with rebellion for just so long. Then He will act. The devastation that would come is prophesied throughout the book of Jeremiah-it might be well for you to read it! And when it came over one million people were killed or exiled as the Babylonians descended upon them. For 70 years those who were exiled would not see their homeland, and in the meanwhile, they would be subject to a foreign nation, no longer free to do their own thing!

“What can I do,” you ask? You can become one of those who turns in repentance and faith to God through the Lord Jesus Christ. And you can begin to live in a way pleasing to Him. You can then help others do the same by warning them as well.

If you do not know how to be saved and change your life to conform to God’s will, read our articles on salvation in the archives. Can you afford to wait until it’s too late? What we need is a great turning to God at this time beginning with you—don’t you think?
