Well, if you want the biblical reason.
It would seem that the world was struck with a curse. A long term one at that. So here is what happened going all the way back to Solomon and first
Kings 11. In the story Solomon did a stupid thing. He had pagan wives and he allowed them to do the following.
First Kings 11.
And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his
God, as was the heart of David his father.
5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father.
7 Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of
the children of Ammon.
8 And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.
9 And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice.
For all of this he received a curse. That his kingdom would be divided and most of it would rebel. And that happened in the time of his son
But after this time both nations suffered under the rule of evil kings and eventually triggered more curses. Eventually that led up to the curse of
the 390 years on Israel and the 40 years on Judah in Ezekial 4. As per the agreement of Leviticus 26.
After that time the Jews returned and rebuilt the temple. And that lead up to the time of Jesus Christ. And then another terrible thing happened.
Elijah the prophet was slain. John the baptist in the Christian new testament. And that action triggered the curse of Malachi. Here in Malachi 4.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a
And then it was just the matter of figuring out the details of the latest curse. And I found the major details of the curse in the book of Hosea.
3 And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for
4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an
ephod, and without teraphim:
5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the
12 Therefore will I be unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.
13 When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor
cure you of your wound.
14 For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall
15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
8 I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild
beast shall tear them.
The ancient of days is really ticked off at the Jews and Israelites. When a bibical verse says I this and I that it's really getting bad there. 4
I's in verse 5-14 all by itself.
And then it comes down to the time frame of the curse.
1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
The time frame of the curse is 2 days in the presence of God. And as per Psalms 90-4 and 2nd Peter 3-8 those days are thousand year periods of time.
The curse is 2 thousand years long. And verifiable by simply looking at the history of the Jews for the last 2000 years.
And that is the reason for your inquiry. God didn't leave. He was rejected by humanity. So he rejected them.
So here's hoping for the happy ending of Hosea 1.
9 Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.
10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in
the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of
the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
