Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself and opened her mouth without measure, and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth shall descend into it – Isaiah 5:13:14 – This took place when Israel was exiled to Assyria and Judah to Babylon, they brought judgement to themselves by turning away from the laws of God. Turning away from God exposes us to judgment. Many Christians are turning away from God because of other religion, selfish desires as well as faith-less. God loves everyone, but He doesn’t love neither does He accept our sin. The penalty of sin is both spiritual and natural death. Spiritual death comes when we turn a deaf ear from the instructions of God; we no longer can hear His voice or being sensitive to His Spirit. Natural death comes when we continue in sinful actions that destroy’s the body, mind and the soul. Hell is just as real as Heaven, and the only way we will enter into Heaven is not being conformed to this world, our minds being transformed by the Word of God knowing what is acceptable and the perfect will of God. God is instructing His people to be holy; meaning they have turned away from their desires to God desires, turning away from the actions of the unbeliever, desiring God’s will to be done in and through them, for His glory and for your blessings!
