Rolling Up The “Spiritual Red Carpet”
Hosea 1:6-7 (KJB) And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away. 7 But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.
Is there a sin so great that God will not have mercy upon a soul or a nation?
This verse clearly states that in this particular instance God would not save the house of Israel. This verse seems to contradict the loving and merciful nature of God who implicitly loves all mankind despite his sin or circumstances in which he is found liberally being taught today.
We do serve the same God today that the house of Judah and house of Israel served in ancient biblical history.
We do serve a God of unconditional love. We do serve a God of great mercy.
However, God must turn a person, people group, or nation over to the consequences of their sin after a time of His own choosing. God cannot offer His unlimited mercy and grace forever. There is an eternal limit to His graceful nature and one day soon the whosoever gate, the ark door, the present spiritual opportunity available for any man to get things right with God will close bringing an end to any possibility of his personal salvation.
God cannot perpetually ignore unrepentant sin and lack of remorse at work in the heart of man.
When the event of His coming in the clouds for His saints comes to fruition God will roll up His “spiritual red carpet” shuttering His ark door tight. The possibility of obtaining a personal relationship with Him will come to an abrupt end as there will be only a handful saved during the millennial tribulation. The time is ripe to get your heart right with God.
