Rebellion against God’s will is the oldest Sin, a sin which is greatly manifested in the Kings of Israel (1st & 2nd Kings) often referred to as the sins of Jeroboam. Jeroboam did alter worship practices and times, introduced worship to false idols and these sins have been transmitted to several other kings to his succession.
The only fact that there are hundreds of religions and spiritual ideologies (not to mention the several branches within the same religions) clearly shows that many try to create their custom god. A god which suites their lifestyle and/or mind set.
This only leads to one conclusion. Rebellion is in our midst since we are not ready to surrender our will and let God take the throne of our lives, a place which only He deserves to have.
We are living in a ‘do not tell me what to do’ society, while everyone has the right to do what he or she feels its best, when viewed from God’s eyes it is pure rebellion. This never changed and it never will as God was, is and will always be the same and so does His eternal Word.
Discovering a true relationship with our creator is discovering our very purpose in life. Yes you have the right to do you ‘YOUR WAY’ but that will be short lived. So let us all humble ourselves, repent and ask for forgiveness for our rebellion. God is faithful enough to forgive our sins and heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
