Hebrews 10:26-27 (KJV) For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Cain and Abel were siblings. A time came that they offered a sacrifice to God. Cain’s sacrifice was rejected while Abel’s was accepted (Gen 4:4-5). Cain was displeased and was angry because God had no respect for him and his sacrifice. When God saw this He spoke to Cain and warned him saying ‘‘If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it." (Gen 4:7 ESV). But Cain chose to reject God's warning, refused to rule over sin, and eventually murdered his brother Abel. God again came to him and asked, ‘‘where is Abel your brother?’’, but even at this, Cain showed no remorse but responded arrogantly, ‘‘I don’t know, am I my brother’s keeper?’’. Because he chose to reject God willfully, God cursed him and sent him out of His presence (Gen 4:11-12), even after this he would not ask God for forgiveness, he left the presence of God instead and started a civilization that was against God (Gen 4:16).

Esau and Jacob were also children of the same parents, Esau sold his birthright to Jacob and Jacob eventually stole Esau’s blessing (Gen 27:36). Esau became angry and sought to kill Jacob his brother, but when he heard his father’s word concerning his future (Gen 27:40) he changed his mind concerning his plan and in the cause of time, he also became great (Gen 33:4-9).

Anyone who refuses God’s forgiveness by willfully continuing in sin has chosen the path of destruction.

Hebrews 2:3 (KJV) ‘‘How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him''

Go into today knowing that to willfully continue in sin is to willfully depart from the presence and covering of God.

Prayer: Ask the Lord for grace to always submit to the Holy Spirit.
