We should never disregard the warnings of holy Scripture. The Bible is God’s Word and will for sinful humanity. If we refuse to take note, we will suffer terrible consequences. God warned His people that if they refused to walk in obedience, He would severely punish them as a nation. Had they taken heed they would have enjoyed great blessings, rather than endure great suffering.
1 Kings 9:7 then I will cut off Israel from the land which I have given them; and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight. Israel will be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
