Do you think Yahweh is joking? Do you take His grace for granted?
Maybe there is no better way to put how serious this is into words than to simply state it the way the Scriptures do in Hebrews 10:26-29. “For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?” Maybe, however, there is one thing even worse than willful sin.
Faking it! Y’shua described these counterfeits as whitewashed tombs, all bright and Christian-like on the outside, but on the inside filled with rotting and decaying bones. Pretty harsh words for gentle Jesus! What I am sure about is this; by obeying God you surround yourself with His blessings, and living in disobedience is worse than a horror story!
