721 Those Who Do Not Obey God Oppose God

Verse 1

Why do you believe in God?

Most people can’t answer this.

They have two different views

about the practical God

and the God in heaven.

Therefore, they believe in God

not so they can obey Him,

but for things He can give them,

or so they can escape

the pain of the disaster.

Only then do they obey.

Their obedience is for

their personal prospects.

It’s conditional

and they’re compelled to obey.

Pre-chorus 1

Your faith must be based on obedience to God,

or you’ll be punished for opposing Him.

Chorus

Those who do not obey God oppose God.

God asks that people seek the truth,

that they crave and take in His words,

and that they live them,

so that they achieve obedience to God.

Verse 2

If this is your true purpose,

then God will raise you up,

and He will give you grace.

Of this, there’s no doubt,

and it never will change.

If you don’t mean to obey God,

if you have other aims,

then all you do and say,

even your prayers to God,

will only oppose Him.

Bridge

You may be soft-spoken,

you may have good manners,

you may have the look

of one who obeys.

But when it comes to your intent

and your views about faith,

all you do opposes God,

all that you do is evil.

Chorus

Those who do not obey God oppose God.

God asks that people seek the truth,

that they crave and take in His words,

and that they live them,

so that they achieve obedience to God.

Verse 3

Those who look obedient

as if they were good sheep,

but inside of their hearts,

they hold evil intent.

They are wolves in disguise.

They directly offend God,

He will spare none of them.

The Holy Spirit will show

that all these hypocrites

will receive God’s contempt.

Pre-chorus 2

Do not be concerned, God will reckon with them all

and dispose of every last one.

Chorus

Those who do not obey God oppose God.

God asks that people seek the truth,

that they crave and take in His words,

and that they live them,

so that they achieve obedience to God.
