Do not feel despise or feel burden on Word of God – Take the Word of God Sword

Holy BibleTherefore the word of the Lord will be to them,  “Precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little;”in order that they may go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. (Isaiah 28:13)

We should have over enthusiasm to listen, obey and spread the Word of God.

11 for those who despise wisdom and instruction are miserable.
Their hope is vain, their labors are unprofitable,
and their works are useless.
12 Their wives are foolish, and their children evil;
13 their offspring are accursed. (Wisdom 3:11-13)

Sometimes we feel that we are hard working, but the result is zero or not up to the level as it should be. Sometimes we wish and hope good things, but the result is just the opposite. We send our children in good schools but their result is poor, their friendship is with wrong people. Wives are beautiful and look like very clever, but doing foolish things. When we feel our hope is vain, our labor is not profitable, our works are useless, our children are not listening to parents and elders and they are leading a life as per their wish with wrong friends, then that is the time for us to look back and think whether we have ever despised wisdom and instructions of Word of God. If yes, we must repent and ask pardon to Lord for this.

Never insult Word of God or discourse. Do not even touch the Holy Bible with impurity. If ever thrown out or put the Bible in fire, repent about that sin.

God ignore people do not have Word of God – Take the Word of God Sword

Holy Bible

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children. (Hosea 4:6)

Saul, the first king of Israel ignored the Word of God. Then God rejected him from the kingdom.

For rebellion is no less a sin than divination,
    and stubbornness is like iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
    he has also rejected you from being king.” (1 Samuel 15:23)

God rejected Saul ruined. Failed in the war. Saul tried to die leaning on his spear. His stomach cut opened, intestines came out, blood flowed. How can forget the last moments of Saul floundering to die. The sad picture of his end is in the last words to an Amalekite who passed through that way.

He said to me, ‘Come, stand over me and kill me; for convulsions have seized me, and yet my life still lingers.’ (2 Samuel 1:9)

Ignoring Word of God reached Saul at this stage.

But Lot’s wife, behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. (Genesis 19:26)

God rejected the wife of Lot who ignored the Word of God. Lot accepted and obeyed the Word of God. That lead him to life. People who reject the Word of God will become dead life.

Lack of understanding about the Word of God is ruin – Take the Word of God Sword

Holy Bible

  1. Is it enough to read the Bible as per our mood only?
  2. Does our duty finish by reading Bible?
  3. What the Lord want from us by reading and studying the Word of God?
  4. Ignoring the word of God how ruin the life?
  5. What is written in Bible about the benefits of the Word of God?
  6. How a Christian should see the Word of God?

Let us Pray – “My Jesus, send your Holy Spirit to teach me the ways to eternal life. Open my heart to understand your rules and commandments.  Praise the Lord. Thanks to Lord. (say Alleluia.. Alleluia many times with raised hands)

Lack of understanding about the Word of God is wastage.

13 Therefore my people will go into exile
    for lack of understanding;
those of high rank will die of hunger
    and the common people will be parched with thirst.
14 Therefore Death expands its jaws,
    opening wide its mouth;
into it will descend their nobles and masses
    with all their brawlers and revelers.
15 So people will be brought low
    and everyone humbled,
    the eyes of the arrogant humbled. (Isaiah 5:13-15)

In the bible the word ‘lack of understanding’ is not used about the world or worldly things, but meant about the God and the Word of God.

Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? (Mark 12:24)

……. a people without understanding will come to ruin! (Hosea 4:14)

When its twigs are dry, they are broken off and women come and make fires with them.
For this is a people without understanding;  so their Maker has no compassion on them, and their Creator shows them no favor. (Isaiah 27:11)

God does not give any value to a  person who do not have Word of God in the heart. He will be ignored like dried and decayed wood falling from tree.

Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:19)

Violating even a very small word of God will lead a person without value in heaven

….. “They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.” (1 Peter 2:8)
