For thus saith the Lord, “I have stretched out my hands all day long to a rebellious people who walk in a way that is not good, according to their own thoughts; A people who provoke Me to anger continually to My face…” [Isaiah 65:2] blindly walking in their own selfish and greedy path and in their arrogance thinking that I will sit quietly by and do nothing. I tell you, the cry on the day of the Lord will be bitter, that day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish [Zephaniah 1:14-15]. Mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn and shall not be quenched. [Jeremiah 7:20]. For I am against you, O arrogant one. [Jeremiah 50:31]. This is the declaration of the Lord of Hosts. I will make your chariots go up in smoke and the sword will devour your young lions. I will cut off your prey from the earth, and the sound of your messengers will never be heard again.” [Nahum 2:13]. Because I have called and you have refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded, because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes, when your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then you will call on Me, but I will not answer. You will seek Me diligently, but you will not find Me. Because you hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord. You would have none of My counsel and despised My every rebuke. Therefore, you shall eat the fruit of your own way, and be filled to the full of your own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay you, and the complacency of fools will destroy you. [Proverbs 1:24-32].
Look at the Bible. Look at Noah and his generation. In [Genesis 6:3], the Lord says, “My spirit shall not always strive with man.” For 120 years, God said, “I want to save you.” For 120 years, God said, “Listen to Noah.” For 120 years, God was long-suffering. For 120 years, God was patient. For 120 years, God was merciful. But the day came when God said, “I’ve had enough. I’m fed up. My patience is gone.” Noah’s people were destroyed by the wrath of God in the flood. I tell you, when God has had enough, it ain’t gonna be nothing nice, you best believe that!
God has been generous to you, but the thanks offered in return is void and insulting. Know that the Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” [2 Peter 3:9]. Talking ‘bout “it’s your prerogative you can do what you want to. It’s the way that you wanna live. No one can tell you what to do, you don’t need permission, you make your own decisions.” You fool you should know differently. Every one of us shall give account of himself to God [Romans 14:12]. I tell you when God has had enough, you gonna wish you had listened. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. [Romans 1:18]. You better know that you know!
Run to God’s mercy while there is still time. Because one day, God will say, okay, I’ve had enough. I’m fed up. And God, mercy will be turned to wrath and God’s long-suffering will be turned to indignation and God’s forgiveness will be turned to vengeance.” [Hebrew 12]. Don’t be another Esau who refused to repent. Because as [Job 4:9] states, “By the blast of God they, [the unrepentant] will perish, and by the breath of His anger they will be consumed.
I tell you when God has had enough, it ain’t gonna be nothing nice! Repent before it is too late!
