Behind the Back

"Go, tell Jeroboam, Thus saith the LORD… thou hast… cast Me behind thy back" (1 Kings 14:7-9).  "Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still, when God arose to judgment" (Psalm 76:8-9).  "Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things" (Proverbs 28:5).  "If our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not" (2 Corinthians 4:3,4). 

When Jeroboam was inclined,
He cast the Lord behind his back,
So this explains his darkened mind
And why he thought the Lord was slack. 

How sadly men reject God's Word,
Dismissing judgment with their scorning,
Though God has made his judgment heard
To those who have refused His warning.

The time to turn to Christ is now,
While there is time to seek the Lord. 
Soon every knee on earth shall bow,
And He shall no more be ignored. 

Behind the back of those now lost,
O Lord, the Gospel has been cast.
We pray that they will count the cost
Before their time to choose has passed.
