“I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before Mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.”
I am also reminded of Galatians 6:7. ” Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. “
If people want to believe a lie, then God will choose the delusions they want to believe, and will allow their worst fears to come upon them.
Why? Because He’s a petty, spiteful God? Absolutely not. His warnings, pleadings, calling to those who will not answer, have been clear for hundreds of years. Eventually, His patience will come to an end.
