God’s disobedient children are being chastised so that they can repent in time. Many are conformed to the world, chasing after money, pleasure, lusts of the flesh, entertainment, things of the world. Many are in sin. Others are unfruitful, they are not seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit, they are running after people. They are following their own minds, not praying. Many refuse to obey Jesus, they refuse to be baptized in water. Many have pet sins that they refuse to stop doing. Others have idols. Their earthly possessions, TV’s, computer games, sports, hobbies, worldly friends, churches, studies. These are keeping them from Jesus.
Your afflictions will be many, sickness, pain, loss. REPENT less you perish with the unbelievers.
There are reprobates who have blasphemed the Holy Spirit. Woe to them.
