Ezekiel 15:8 And I will make the land desolate, because they have committed a trespass, saith the Lord GOD.
The land will be made desolate. The reason is that they have sinned against God. God loves His people. He is a God of grace but that doesn’t mean that He allows us to sin without their being any consequences. Obviously here He is talking to a nation but the principle applies to us as individuals as well.
If we willfully sin knowing better we can expect consequences. Let’s take the warning and avoid the suffering.
