My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
What is knowledge?
awareness of something : the state of being aware of something.
But before knowledge is gotten, is through studying
When we talk about the knowledge of God, is when His word is pleasant unto your soul through studying His word to know His will (the truth) and principles and purpose for your life
Before the knowledge of God will be pleasant unto your soul, there is a fear in your heart for the Lord.
There are many Christians and Pastors who are anointed but are ignorant of knowing the Lord’s will more and more than what they are doing.
Remember the word of God says it is better to obey than to sacrifice.
Beloved , don’t forget , using Jesus Christ name carries power already and anyone who believes in that name, works for him.
2 Peter 1:5-9
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
Why was God saying He will reject the priest because of lack of knowledge?
By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.
Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.
Because there is no fear of God in them, God has rejected them.
When you reject the knowledge of God, you’ve rejected God Himself. Anyone who rejects God, God rejects that person.
If God rejects you, He hand you over to destruction
See what God did to Saul the first anointed King of Israel, remember what happened to Ananias and Sapharia. Acts 5:4
God rejected many people because they did not fear God and know His purpose and truth.
Pastors , Prophets, Apostles, Evangelists and Teachers of the gospel of our Lord Jesus, who don’t know the will of God and the knowledge of God are not permitted to enter into the kingdom of God.
This is because, they will always transgress against the Lord.
You can preach, but add knowledge, you can prophecy but add knowledge, you can do everything you want to do for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ but add knowledge.
No wonder in this end times, there are Pastors who are preaching with doctrines which are not of God but with familiar spirit.
When God rejects you, you follow after your lustful desires.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Let us add knowledge to the anointing. There are many who started with the grace of the Lord and the oil from above but because they rejected the word of God (ignorance) and refused to study the word of God which is the sword of the Spirit, the enemy has conquered them and they are being used by the devil, this shows how they’ve perishes.
Please let us be watchful and study to show our self approved.
The truth is that , the more you study the word of God, is the more you fear to sin against God.
2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
God richly bless you in Jesus name.
