“See that ye refuse not him that speaketh.” —Hebrews 12:25
Read Hebrews 12:24-29
It is a most terrible thing to walk in spiritual darkness and to perish forever. But it is a thousand times worse to have walked in the light and to have refused to embrace the Lord through faith. It will be dreadful to fall into the hands of the living God!
The threat in the Old Testament was terrible and very frightening. Moses exclaimed, “I am sorely afraid and shaken.” But where the law frightens, the Gospel invites. No one was allowed to climb Mount Sinai – if they even touched the mountain they would be put to death. On the other hand, we have the liberty to go to the Lord with boldness.
God is good and kind in allowing us to enter Mount Zion. How patient He is with us, calling out to us, “I have no desire in your death but that you repent and live. Turn, for why will you die?”
The Lord is good, but He is also righteous and just. If we continue in unbelief, we will have to pay for our own sins, for “our God is a consuming fire.” If you refuse to believe, it will be your own fault when you perish forever. So what will you do with this message – repent or ignore it?
Do you fall upon your knees to beg God for saving grace?
