Religion can be so dangerous. Intimately knowing Him, an intimate relationship, is what He desires.
‘What sorrow awaits you who say, “If only the day of the Lord were here!”
You have no idea what you are wishing for. That day will bring darkness, not light.
In that day you will be like a man who runs from a lion— only to meet a bear.
Escaping from the bear, he leans his hand against a wall in his house— and he’s bitten by a snake.
Yes, the day of the Lord will be dark and hopeless, without a ray of joy or hope.
“I hate all your show and pretense– the hypocrisy of your religious festivals and solemn assemblies.
I will not accept your burnt offerings and grain offerings. I won’t even notice all your choice peace offerings.
Away with your noisy hymns of praise! I will not listen to the music of your harps. Amos 5:18-23 (NLT)
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to Me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and cast out demons in Your name, and do many mighty works in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.’ Matthew 7:21-23 (ESV)
Jesus replied ‘… you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your Soul, all your Mind, and all your Strength.’ Mark 12:30
