  Rejecting God's Warnings


Note: God warned His rebellious children, then comforted those who loved Him -- those who "tremble at His word":

“ they have chosen their own ways,
And their soul delights in their abominations,
So will I choose their delusions, and bring their fears on them;
Because, when I called, no one answered,
When I spoke they did not hear;
But they did evil before My eyes,
And chose that in which I do not delight.”
Hear the word of the Lord,
You who tremble at His word...” 
Isaiah 66:3-5

"...thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:
'In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.'
But you would not..."
Isaiah 30:15-16

They refuse to return. I listened and heard, but they do not speak aright.
No man repented of his wickedness, saying, ‘ What have I done? ’
Everyone turned to his own course as the horse rushes into the battle."
Jeremiah 8:5

“ have polluted the land with your harlotries and your wickedness.
Therefore the showers have been withheld,
And there has been no latter rain. 
You have had a harlot’s forehead;  you refuse to be ashamed."
Jeremiah 3:2-3

"The people will be oppressed,
Every one by another and every one by his neighbor;
The child will be insolent toward the elder,
And the base toward the honorable."
Isaiah 3:5

"For they have brought evil upon themselves....
As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them.
O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err,
And destroy the way of your paths."
Isaiah 3:9, 12

"I will go before you and make the crooked places straight;
I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.
I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden riches of secret places,
That you may know that I, the Lord, Who calls you by your name,
Am the God of Israel....

I am the Lord, and there is no other;
There is no God besides Me
Isaiah 45:2-5

“Then all the men who knew that their wives had burned incense to other gods, with all the women who stood by, a great multitude, and all the people who dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying: 'As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we will not listen to you! But we will certainly do whatever has gone out of our own mouth, to burn incense to the queen of heaven...." Jeremiah 44:15-17

"...when they say to you, 'Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter, should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? " Isaiah 8:18

"I will utter My judgments against them concerning all their wickedness, because they have forsaken Me, burned incense to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands." Jeremiah 1:16

“Thus says the Lord: 'Stand in the ways and see,
And ask for the old paths, where the good way is,  and walk in it;
Then you will find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
     "Also, I set watchmen over you, saying,
‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’
But they said, ‘We will not listen.’
“Therefore hear, you nations,  and know, O congregation....
Behold, I will certainly bring calamity on this people — the fruit of their thoughts,
Because they have not heeded My words,
Nor My law, but rejected it.
Jeremiah 6:16-19

“...the Lord has sent to you all His servants the prophets... but you have not listened nor inclined your ear to hear. They said, ‘ Repent now everyone of his evil way and his evil doings... and do not provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands; and I will not harm you. ’ Yet you have not listened to Me, ' says the Lord, ' that you might provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt."  Jeremiah 25:4

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined."
Isaiah 9:2

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6

"He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."  John 1:10-13
