Renungan harian alkitab, 2 Kings 17, Senin;” rebellion character, karakter pemberontak”

2 Kings 17:13-14 (NKJV)  Yet the Lord testified against Israel and against Judah, by all of His prophets, every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways, and keep My commandments and My statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by My servants the prophets.”

Nevertheless they would not hear, but stiffened their necks, like the necks of their fathers, who did not believe in the Lord their God.

Tuhan telah mengirim begitu banyak Nabi untuk menyampaikan pesan pertobatan kepada umat Israel, mereka sama sekali tidak mendengarkan.

Umat Israel sengaja memberontak kepada Tuhan, memberontak terhadap pimpinan para Nabi, bukan hanya sekali tapi beratus kali, dan beratus tahun lamanya.

Para pembaca  umat  Israel telah memilih jalan mereka sendiri, mereka menolak Tuhan, dan mereka menuai hasil pilihan mereka sendiri, menjadi budak dan terkalahkan bangsa asing, mereka tidak hanya diperbudak kerajaan lain tapi juga oleh kuasa penyembahan berhala.

Ketika Tuhan terus menerus mengirim hamba -hamba Tuhan untuk menegur, memimpin umatnya, tapi umat memberontak, maka umat telah memilih keluar dari jalan terang dan hidup dalam jalan kegelapan.
