Those who use the Truth and obey it, and don’t just listen to it like a “lovely song,” are blessed. They are blessed in their lives and with more and more Truth! The world will be cursed with a famine of Truth someday because so many refuse to use it or believe it.
Ezekiel 33:32-33, “And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
“And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.”
Ezekiel warned Judah before they were taken into captivity because they abandoned God. They ignored the Sabbath and served pagan gods. In principle His warning is also for our day. If people today listen to the Truth “like a beautiful song” but few obey the message, God will allow their nation to fall.
The world is strongly moving toward nature worship and science worship. Most are convinced of the Theory of Evolution. Few know that Darwin realized that his theory was wrong before his death. Someday we will all laugh at the idea of the complex creation happening by accident.It all occurs purely by chance? Unbelievable!
Our society today is not that much different from ancient Israel as they fell away from the Truth and God allowed them to be overthrown. One must obey the Truth of God, or lose the Truth.
Matthew 25:29 “For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
“And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
