What Angers God?

Scripture: 2 Kings 23 v 27:

"And the Lord said, I will remove Judah also out of My sight, as I have removed Israel, and will cast off this city Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, My name shall be there."

- Our God is the same yesterday, today and forever! He never changes and His judgment is always righteous after great provocation.

- If He can turn away from and remove beloved Israel from His sight and all their blessings and favour, we need to be sure we are not doing any of those things or we will get the same result.

- Verse 24 gives the reasons: Mediums (working with familiar spirits - they mimic your dead parents and deceive you) its where Ancestor Worship originated. Wizards, witches, idolatry, statues, and all abominations: orgies, sexual perversions, rape, murder, lies; were seen in the land.

- When a nation is in decline these are the fruit in evidence. God is angry at sin everyday. He has sent His Son Jesus to remove sin from us so He can forgive us. All who turn to Him from their secret sins will be washed in the Blood of Jesus.

 Prayer: Lord Jesus, You saved us from God's anger but please reveal to me any secret sins that could cause God to remove me from His sight. Cleanse me with Your Blood. Amen.
