There is a point where God gives up. He no longer sends his spirit to prompt you. He lets you go and do whatever your heart desires, and the evil of your ways will produce fruit. There will be consequences. He lets you see that there is a natural law, and negative feedback. The leaders of Israel were sacrificing to pagan Gods and worshiping them while neglecting the Law of the land and the Gospel.
There are parallels with our situation and our time. Again, it is not time to worship with the publick religion of the greens, the woke and the religions they foolishly think they have tamed. Instead, turn to God alone.
39 “As for you, O house of Israel, thus says the Lord God: Go serve every one of you his idols, now and hereafter, if you will not listen to me; but my holy name you shall no more profane with your gifts and your idols.Ezekiel 20:39-44 ESV
40 “For on my holy mountain, the mountain height of Israel, declares the Lord God, there all the house of Israel, all of them, shall serve me in the land. There I will accept them, and there I will require your contributions and the choicest of your gifts, with all your sacred offerings. 41 As a pleasing aroma I will accept you, when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered. And I will manifest my holiness among you in the sight of the nations. 42 And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I bring you into the land of Israel, the country that I swore to give to your fathers. 43 And there you shall remember your ways and all your deeds with which you have defiled yourselves, and you shall loathe yourselves for all the evils that you have committed. 44 And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I deal with you for my name’s sake, not according to your evil ways, nor according to your corrupt deeds, O house of Israel, declares the Lord God.”
The consequences for a nation? They will loathe what their fathers have done, when they repent.
It is better that we turn to God now.
