You Brought This On Yourself

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com

Have you not brought this on yourself, by abandoning Yahweh your God, while he was leading you in the way? (Jeremiah 2:17).

There are significant consequences for leaving Yahweh.

The Jews abandoned Yahweh and they were taken into exile in Babylon.  After repenting and being restored to the promised land, they again were disobedient and disloyal, following the traditions of men not the word of God. And now they have lost Yahweh’s favor.

Jesus tells us definitively that the Hebrew leaders lost Yahweh’s favor and that Yahweh was going to turn his favor to the nations. (Mathew 21:43) This is why I say to ​YOU, the kingdom of God will be taken from ​YOU​ and be given to a nation producing its fruits.

How sad it will be on judgement day for those who chose not to be obedient and loyal to Yahweh. There are significant consequences for leaving Yahweh.
