30 “Therefore I will judge you, house of Israel, each one according to his ways.” It is a declaration of Adonai. “Return, and turn away from all your transgressions, so they would not be a stumbling block of iniquity for you. 31 Cast off from you all your transgressions that you have committed. Make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, house of Israel? 32 For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies”—it is a declaration of Adonai—”so return, and live!”
God has given us free-will in deciding how He will honor us. By placing our trust in Yeshua’s sacrifice and living a life with a new heart and a new spirit is how we honor Him. But if we choose not to and cling to our selfish heart and spirit, God will honor that freewill choice too, with justice.
