Do You Answer When God Calls?

The Lord explained to Israel why they would suffer Babylonian captivity, saying that they had forgotten His holy mountain (Isaiah 65:11). He explained further,
“Therefore I will number you for the sword,
And you shall all bow down to the slaughter;
Because, when I called, you did not answer;
When I spoke, you did not hear,
But did evil before My eyes,
And chose that in which I do not delight.”
(Isaiah 65:12)
He told them exactly why they would suffer, but this revelation did not change them until they experienced the horrors of a foreign invasion and captivity.
What does He have to do to get us to listen to Him?
