Quote for 11/13/2021

The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.    2 Peter 3:9

******************************

God gave Israel centuries to forsake their sinful ways of not holding His annual Sabbath, the Shemitah.  He gave them that long to stop making their children burnt offerings to Molech.

That’s forbearance!  He gave them every opportunity and many warning before wiping the northern kingdom from the earth and letting Babylon take the southern kingdom into captivity.

Of course, that was centuries for the country!  We don’t have nearly that many years as individuals.  Still, God will bear with us and try to get our attention that we should all come to repentance.

He wants no one to spend their eternity in torment.
