He Could Not Change

Something to think about.

He Could Not Change.

See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. Even though he sought the blessing with tears, he could not change what he had done.
Hebrews 12:16‭-‬17

These are sobering verses. “He could not change what he had done.” We are taught in Christian circles that there is always redemption for our sin. That we can always return to God and he will accept us. I look at these scriptures and others and find this endless claim of redemption not to be so. I believe there is a point where God will not call or hear you. A time when he will say, I will leave you to your own devices. I will not intercede on your behalf. We do harm to those who have assimilated this belief from us. We need to inform them that the patience of God is not limitless. That there is a time in a person’s life when God will not hear their cry of repentance. We need to instill the reality of the fear of God back into our lives as well as the lives of those around us. I am not referring to the reverence of God I referring to bone shaking fear of God. The ultimate judgment of God is in deed something to be feared.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
