Results Of God's Rejection - 2 Chronicles 7:19-22

2 Chronicles 7:19 "But if you don't obey my laws and commands that I gave you, and if you worship other gods and serve them,

2 Chronicles 7:20 then I will take the Israelites out from my land that I gave them. And I will leave this Temple that I have made holy for my name. I will make this Temple something that all the nations will speak evil about.

2 Chronicles 7:21 Everyone who sees it will be amazed. They will ask, 'Why did the LORD do this terrible thing to this land and to this temple?'

2 Chronicles 7:22 People will say, 'This happened because they left the LORD, the God of their ancestors. He brought them out of Egypt, but they decided to follow other gods. They began to worship and to serve those gods. That is why he caused all these bad things to happen to them.'"

If we reject God, it's a process, it won't happen overnight, God gives us chances to return back before, and during the process. Here are stages of what we call rejection of God's call and Words.

I. You don't obey God's Words

II. You Worship Other gods

III. You Will Be Taken Out Of The Promised Land

IV. You Will Be Left Behind By God

V. People Will Be Amazed and Ridicule You.

VI. You Will Return To Egypt

I. You don't obey God's Words

All God's commands and laws are in His Words, the Holy Bible. If you stop "listening" to it, you failed already at the first step. You suppose to study, have daily devotions, read meditatively and apply God's Words in your life regularly, if you stop doing this, you start to fall on that proverbial slide, you starts to slide down, and regress. Make it a habit to obey God's Words at all cost, it's for our own good.

Leviticus 26:14 "But if you don't obey me and all my commands, bad things will happen to you.

Deuteronomy 28:15 "But if you don't listen to what the LORD your God tells you--if you don't obey all his commands and laws that I tell you today--then all these bad things will happen to you:

Isaiah 48:17 The LORD, the Savior, the Holy One of Israel, says, "I am the LORD your God. I teach you for your own good. I lead you in the way you should go.

II. You Worship Other gods

Idolatry is anyone or anything that stands in the way between you and God. The love of money can also be one form of idolatry. It is your own hand's doing. Quit placing people, person, or things to stand between God and you.

Deuteronomy 4:16 So be careful! Don't sin and destroy yourselves by making false gods or statues in the shape of any living thing. Don't make an idol that looks like a man or a woman,

Acts 7:41 So the people made an idol that looked like a calf. Then they brought sacrifices to it. They were very happy with what they had made with their own hands.

1Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

III. You Will Be Taken Out Of The Promised Land

You will be defeated in your own territory and your properties will be stolen from you. Your expertise will lose it's glow.

Leviticus 26:33 I will scatter you among the nations. I will pull out my sword and destroy you. Your land will become empty, and your cities will be destroyed.

Leviticus 26:34 "You will be taken to your enemy's country. Your country will be empty. So your land will finally get its rest. The land will enjoy its time of rest.

Leviticus 26:35 During the time that the land is empty, it will get the time of rest that you did not give it while you lived there.

Leviticus 26:36 The survivors will lose their courage in the land of their enemies. They will be afraid of everything. They will run around like a leaf blown by the wind. They will run as if someone is chasing them with a sword. They will fall even when no one is chasing them.

IV. You Will Be Left Behind By God

You will be left behind by God. Your enemies will start to triumph over you.

Leviticus 26:37 They will run as if someone is chasing them with a sword. They will fall over each other--even when no one is chasing them. "You will not be strong enough to stand up against your enemies.

Leviticus 26:38 You will be lost in other nations. You will disappear in the land of your enemies.
