Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near:
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.
This suggests a time when God cannot be found.
6 times sinners cannot find God:
1 – When they turn their hearts away from Him and will not hear [Dt. 30:17-18; 1 Sam. 38:6; 1 Chron. 10:13-14; Jer. 11:10-12; Ps. 95:7-11; Matt. 13:13-15].
2 – When they mock God and scorn at His dealings until calamity comes [Pr. 1:23-31].
3 – When they become too proud and stubborn to humble themselves before Him [Num. 16].
4 – When they neglect to settle all matters with Him until judgment falls [Acts 5:1-11].
5 – When they die in sin [Heb. 9:27].
6 – When they blaspheme the Holy Spirit [Mt. 12:31-32].
