Thus saith the LORD God of Israel (Galatians 6:16)...
But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.
Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do unto you, as I thought to do unto them.
What are the lessons learned from the above status of the LORD God's stern commandments of the ancient Israelites and their utter failures over and over and over again to come out from the wicked world?
2 Corinthians 6:14
Be YE NOT UNEQUALLY YOKED TOGETHER WITH UNBELIEVERS: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and WHAT COMMUNION HATH LIGHT WITH DARKNESS?
2 Corinthians 6:15
And WHAT CONCORD [AGREEMENT, PART] hath Christ with Belial? or WHAT PART hath HE THAT BELIEVETH with AN INFIDEL?
2 Corinthians 6:16
And what AGREEMENT hath the TEMPLE OF GOD WITH IDOLS? for YE are the TEMPLE of THE LIVING GOD; as God hath said, I will DWELL IN THEM, and WALK IN THEM; and I will be their God, and THEY SHALL be my people.
2 Corinthians 6:17
Wherefore COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, and BE YE SEPARATE, saith the Lord, and TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING; and I will RECEIVE YOU.
2 Corinthians 6:18
And WILL be a FATHER UNTO YOU, and YE SHALL be MY SONS and DAUGHTERS, saith the Lord Almighty.
