BIBLICAL TRUTHS FROM NATURE
As I consider the fact that uprooting a plant can cause its life (I say can because there are methods that can be done to help the tree), I turned to the scriptures to see what God has to say about this issue. Let me share my findings.
An overall summary
When God uproots you, it is complete destruction, unlike the plant that there is chance for survival. Please consider:
1. YHWH does the rooting up of the wicked, including sodomites; he hates sin. Deuteronomy 29:28 (you can read the whole chapter)
2. YHWH roots up the wicked because of idolatry- exalting creation as God with God. 1 King s14:15
3. When the converted continues not to obey YHWH by keeping his commandments, he too will be plucked up by the root as well. 2 Chronicles 7:19-20. For sin is the transgression of the law. To sin is to be a Satanist- a child of the Devil. 1 John 3:8. One cannot be a child of God and a child of the Devil at the same time.
4.) The man who delights in wickedness will also be rooted up but the righteous will be protected by GOD. Psalm 52:1-9
5.) Transgressors will be rooted out of the earth, like how a plant is rooted out. This is destruction of the wicked. Proverbs 2:22
Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up, says Christ in Matthew 15:13. Man is likened unto a tree in the scripture and we see that the wicked will be rooted up. How can one escape the destruction of YHWH? You have to be converted. You must be changed from your wicked ways to escape the wrath of God. You must cease from sin and it is God in you that causes you to live righteously.1 Corinthians 6:9-11
“9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
God destroys because man robs him of His glory when they sin against him. Romans 3:23, but YHWH is God alone and his glory he will not share with another. Isaiah 42:8 Therefore choose this day to make YHWH your God alone, repent of your wickedness and be saved from sin and destruction.
