verse 1: “A man who hardens his neck after much reproof Will suddenly be broken beyond remedy.”

What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object?

In a recent incarnation of Justice League of America, Solomon Grundy thought he was that immovable object, trying to take on the Red Tornado. But when the Tornado fired wind vortexes at him in excess of an F-5 tornado (somewhere over 225 miles an hour?), he literally was torn apart.

In the Bible, Pharaoh thought he was that immovable object. Even after God warned him through Moses and the ten plagues to let the children of Israel go, he wouldn’t relent. Finally he did, but then tried to pursue them and kill them. Pharaoh’s army met the irresistible force of God in the form of the parted Red Sea crashing down on them.

There’s a footnote in my Bible referring to 1 Samuel 2:25 and this verse. That’s the verse where Eli is warning his wicked sons to turn from their evil. They didn’t, and they were met by the irresistible force of God’s judgment.

God is true and just and will rebuke us. He also is willing to forgive us if we will just repent and seek His forgiveness. But if we think we can stubbornly be immovable, set in our sin…then get ready for the irresistible force of God’s judgment and wrath.
