God tries so hard to relate to us and to get us to come out of a sacrificial world into His kingdom.
He is trying to get Israel to see God Through this sacrificial system they have known from being and resorting to all the pagan god’s of the day.
He understands when we are being intentional and unintentional but not when we chose to be defiant.
Jesus Christ is the example we are to follow and the sacrifice for our sin. And we are called to walk his path and not our own. Don’t pick up firewood when you know God has said not too. Don’t resort to your old ways in defiance and expect blanket forgiveness.
