I don’t want to hear that message
“Neither the king nor his attendants showed any signs of fear or repentance at what they heard. Even when Elnathan, Delaiah, and Gemariah begged the king not to burn the scroll, he wouldn’t listen.”
Jeremiah 36:24-25 NLT
The message calls for repentance, behavior change and correct the sinful way of life; it will never be a popular message.
The rejection of this message is accentuated when, having some “degree of power”, we believe self-sufficient and with the power to ignore, question or even challenge the call to repent.
But this type of behavior will not change in any way the truth and the fulfillment of the God’s word; is for this reason, that is better to use the right time to repent and enjoy God’s forgiveness.
