Proverbs 1:28 - Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD.
What a solemn reality! God is longsuffering with sin, but not forever. He extends his hand of mercy and salvation, but only for a time. After this comes judgment. We would be fools to think we will refuse God now and turn to obey Him whenever we desire to. The Bible is clear, that there will be a time when God will not be found by men. Those seeking His help in that day will do so, not out of faith and love for Him, but out of self preservation. They will seek refuge from Hell, longing to escape the terror of God's wrath, but it will not be at their availability. Because they despised all of God's goodness to them in the past, they are left to receive what they truly deserve. NOW is the time of salvation! Seek God today, for tomorrow is not promised. You can have peace with God through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, whom God has sent to be the perfect sacrifice and Substitute for sinners. It is through Jesus alone that we can have forgiveness with God. Redeem the time and seek God's mercy today!
