II CHRONICLES 13:12

 

2 CHRONICLES 13:12  Now look, God Himself is with us as our head, and His priests with sounding trumpets to sound the alarm against you. O children of Israel, do not fight against the Lord God of your fathers, for you shall not prosper!

 

ABIJAH, KING OVER JUDAH WAS WARNING HIS PEOPLE THAT THEIR IDOLATRY AND REBELLION WAS ABOUT TO BE ADDRESSED BY GOD, AND IT WOULD NOT GO WELL FOR THEM.

HE REMINDED HIS PEOPLE OF EXAMPLES IN THE PAST (SONS OF AARON, REHOBOAM, SOLOMON)WHERE HIS SERVANTS BROKE RANK AND SUFFERED CONSEQUENCES.

WE WOULD ALL DO WELL TO HEED SUCH WARNING. IT APPLIES TODAY AS SURELY AS IT DID IN TIMES OF OLD.

WHEN WE RESIST, REBEL, AND STUBBORNLY OPPOSE OUR GOD, HANGING ONTO OUR OWN WAY, WE WILL HAVE CONSEQUENCES. IT WILL NOT GO WELL FOR US.

GOD OFTEN SENDS PROPHETS AND PRIESTS TO SOUND AN ALARM, TODAY ALSO, TO WARN HIS PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE HEADED FOR DESTRUCTION, IF THEY DON’T MAKE THEMSELVES RIGHT BEFORE HIM. WE ARE, IN FACT, RECEIVING MANY SUCH WARNINGS TODAY, IN AN EFFORT TO PREPARE GOD’S PEOPLE FOR THE DAYS AHEAD, THE TIME OF GREAT TRIBULATION WHICH IS TO COME UPON HUMANKIND.
