II Chronicles 36:15-16 ” The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent word to them through His messengers again and again, because He had pity on His people and on His dwelling place. But they mocked God’s messengers, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets until the wrath of the Lord was aroused against His people and there was no remedy.”

Mankind has always been a stiff necked and stubborn lot…while in contrast, our Lord has always been the One to try again and again to patiently bring us back. But as Jeremiah 11:7 sadly tells us, “I warned them again and again, saying, ‘Obey Me.’ But they didn’t listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubbornness of their evil hearts.” But make no mistake, God’s longsuffering has limits…His tolerance for disobedience only to a certain point. And as we see above, when that fateful point is reached, God’s anger will flare without remedy.
