 18F.   God Will Reject Those Who Will Reject His Words


We have learned that by Adam's rejection of the word or statute of God he was rejected by God, and deprived the right to deify God.  Adam was abandoned by God in order to suffer the consequences of his rebellion.

18F.1  Why is man no longer of God if the word of God is rejected?

God's answer is written in I Samuel 15:23

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.'' (NKJV)

If man rejects the word of God, he will also be rejected by God. He will be abandoned by God in order to suffer the consequences of his rebellion.

18F.2   What does the Bible say about a man who says he knows God but does not keep His commandments?

In I John 2: 3-4 is is written:

Now by this we know that we know Him,  if we keep His commandments.  He who says, "I know Him,"  and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. (NKJV)

The Bible call him a "Liar".   He who says he knows God but disobeys His commandments is a liar. 
Why? Because the truth is not in him.

It is not enough to know God.  He who claims to know God must obey His commandments. 

18F.3   In such a situation will God still listen to men?  Will He allow men under His curse to deify Him?

God says in Proverbs 1:28:

"Then they will call me, but I will not answer;  They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me."

God refuses to be deified by those who are under His curse. 


By man's rejection of the word of God, he was rejected by God.  Thus, the Lord God refuses to be deified by those who are under His curse. It  should therefore be man's priority to return back to God. Man must find the way to return to God, so he can fulfill God's purpose in creating him.

End Of Lesson    Thank You For Your Time!
We hope the lesson "The Meaning And Beginning Of Religion" was made clear and meaningful to you
by the verses of the Holy Bible.

Succeeding Lesson:
Adam and Eve transgress God's commandment and caused the fall of man from the grace of God. The peaceful relationship between God and man was disrupted. His right and privilege to deify God is lost, and   consequently, his right to an everlasting life. As a consequence, all men having sinned are destined to die the second death in the lake of fire. Man became God's enemy because of sin. Thus, even if man will call on God, He will not answer. Man must first find "the way to return to God", that is to actively search for the "Good Way"—the True Religion that will lead him back to God and find rest for his soul.
Understanding why and how man can return to God will be studied in detail in Lesson 22.  Man Must Find "The Way To Return To God" Or "The True Religion"
