When an individual or group of people breaks God’s commandments, their heavens close. God said that when one decides to disobey His Word, his or her heavens will be closed. Refusing to hear God’s Word is the same as being disobedient to Him. Hearing the Word of God and deciding not to do anything equally is despising God.
God made known in the Scriptures that He will appoint terror, consumption and burning ague that consumes the eye over those who despise or disobey Him
then I will do this to you: I will bring on you sudden terror, wasting diseases and fever that will destroy your sight and sap your strength. You will plant seed in vain, because your enemies will eat it.(Leviticus 26:16)
Disobedience to God’s Word is the primary reason for sorrows of heart and profitless hard labours that have filled the world today. When a person’s heaven is closed, his enemies eat from the fruits of his labour.
God can depart from such persons. Their enemies will defeat them even in minor battles. Enemies of such people are usually much and they always suffer from hatred and rejection. They become servants to their supposed servants. Such people fear easily over nothing and feelings of insecurity overwhelm them.

The punishment for refusing to obey God’s Word and keep His commandments will be multiplied seven-fold
If after all this you will not listen to me, I will punish you for your sins seven times over.(Leviticus 26:18).
Everything that will happen to disobedient people has been outlined and written down by God so that no one will have any excuse.
‘And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits’(Leviticus 26:19-20).
Your Eternal Thoughts
If you think that your immense wealth and prosperity will shield you from God’s judgment and ensure you enjoy eternal life, you are either deceived or deceiving yourself. It is only a matter of time and your pride and strength of prosperity will be broken. All that gives you the power and make you proud will be dealt with. If you are enjoying open-heaven as a sinner, it will not last. The strength of your power and prosperity will be broken and you will be left with nothing. The flow of financial successes and material wealth do not last for a long time. God promised to make heaven as iron and earth as brass for disobedient and rebellious people.
‘And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:’(Leviticus 26:19-20).
It is foolish to gather wealth and enjoy life on earth without obedience to God’s commandments. God’s Word declares that sooner or later, the works of your hands will no longer prosper, and your strength and efforts in life will become wastes.

However, God may not take away your life immediately. He may even allow you to regain your strength for a while, but you will spend it in rain. When you operate under a closed heaven, every investment you make will yield nothing. Your heaven will be caged and become as hard as iron and your earth as brass. You will suddenly begin to face impossibilities and experience business failures. Witches and wizards will invade your hard work on earth and your children will be brought under satanic attacks.
Your life and anything you do on earth will come under manipulations and become exposed to satanic attacks. Pestilence, increased number of enemies and lack of good things will characterize your life. At some other times, the earth will be made as iron, while the heaven above as brass. A person whose heavens are closed needs an urgent visitation of God.
