We know that Satan is behind all blasphemy, ridicule, and mockery of God. It is his mission to garner disrespect, rebellion, and insurrection against the rule and authority of God. In fact, insurrection comes to us from the Latin word, insurgere, meaning to rise up.
God knows a life of disobedience to Him is a life destined to crash and burn. For example, Zedekiah, the young king over Judah and Jerusalem did evil, stiffened his neck and hardened his heart against turning to the Lord God. Others also including priests and officials chose to follow the abominations of the heathen nations around them.
God, in His great mercy, sent word to those defying His authority again and again because He had compassion on them. However, they continued to mock the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets until His anger could not be restrained and there was no remedy. (See 2 Chronicles 36:11-16)
Today, God and Jesus are also being openly mocked in our society, but “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
