“Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not” (Proverbs 8:33).
Our end is near; our days are fulfilled, for indeed the end is coming one day. For those who refuse to come to knowledge of the truth through the word of God, God has forewarned:
“When your fear cometh as desolation and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me. For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD” (Proverbs 1:27–28).
“The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death” (Proverbs 14:27).
“Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup” (Psalm 11:6).
