Sin Destroys Any Willing to Turn Their Back to God
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame. (Hosea 4:6-7 KJV)
Sin destroys anyone who willingly chooses to turn their back on God.
God left footprints of Himself in nature, an inner desire in man’s heart, and His Law at work in this world. The Age of Grace has given mankind God’s completed Word and the presence of His Holy Spirit as a promise, or a down payment, for possession of a spiritual relationship with God both now and in the eternal realm.
The reality of God is readily apparent in this world and for all eternity. However, many choose to turn away from knowledge of God while they spend much time cultivating roots upon this earth. It is a deliberate choice many make to ignore God’s law, His Word, His presence, His commandments, and His shed blood upon Calvary while living on this earth aligned with the god of this world.
