The word that you hear is not Mine but is from the Father who sent Me.
Why would anyone abandon someone who would never leave them, who would never forsake them, and who loves them with an undying, unchanging love?
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (John 14:15/21/23). This is how we show love to God, in God’s view. It makes sense, spiritually, even if we don’t agree or don’t want to.
Let whoever is wise understand these things,
and whoever is insightful recognize them.
For the ways of the Lord are right,
and the righteous walk in them,
but the rebellious stumble in them.
So stop stumbling over what you should do.
[this is] the Lord’s declaration-
turn to Me with all your heart,
with fasting, weeping, and mourning.
Tear your hearts,
not just your clothes,
and return to the Lord your God.
For He is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger, rich in faithful love,
and He relents from sending disaster.
