Lack of Knowledge
Lack of Knowledge
Why are people destroyed? Why do they perish?
My people are destroyed (perish) from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children. Hosea 4:6
What knowledge did they reject which caused them to perish?
My people perish and are destroyed because they reject the Word of God. They have rejected Jesus Christ as Lord. The world’s system of knowledge recognizes and rewards man and self-effort more than coming under the authority of creator Holy God. The world’s system seeks the cravings and pleasures of this temporal world.
Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]–these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself].
And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever. 1 John 2: 15-17
The world’s system esteems knowledge about everything except the creator, redeemer and sustainer of life, Jesus Christ.
It is appointed unto all men to die and then face judgment. What kind of knowledge will you have when you stand before the judgment throne of God? Knowing, believing and trusting that Jesus Christ took all judgement, the curse of the law and all sin past, present and future on the cross will spare you from this judgement. This wisdom which comes from the Lord which the world cannot understand.
Jesus is the Word of God which became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus is Holy God who died for your sins so no one should perish because of a lack of knowledge. If you will seek HIM, you will find HIM when you seek HIM with all of your heart.
The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him. Lamentations 3:25
Seek the knowledge of God’s love, peace, joy, comfort, protection, provision and contentment today. Seek HIM with all of your heart.
