Words for Today!!! THE WICKEDNESS IN THIS WORLD!! Call Upon The Lord!!!
Have we forgotten what all the Lord has done for us? Have we forgotten to pray in these wicked times? Are we so caught up in the distractions of the enemy we have no time for the Lord? What do you think the Lord is thinking looking at all the wickedness? His heart must be so grieved at what we have become!!
Matthew 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
Matthew 27:26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
Matthew 27:27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
Matthew 27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
Matthew 27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
Matthew 27:30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
Matthew 27:31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
Matthew 27:32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
Matthew 27:33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
Matthew 27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
Matthew 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
Matthew 27:36 And sitting down they watched him there;
Matthew 27:37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Do you really think if Jesus didn’t want to go to that cross, if he didn’t want to pay for our sins, anyone of them soldiers could have held him against his will??
No way he could have spoke and all would have been killed. He went through all this for each one of us. He did it for everyone, all people all over the world regardless of color, income, nationality.
Even through knowing all of this, and what he did, why do we doubt his power, his forgiveness? We all have an opinion of all that we see going on right now. The Lord told us the last days will be as in the days of Sodom and Gomohhra rampant sin, idolatry, lust, fornication, PRIDE.
Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Ephesians 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Ephesians 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Ephesians 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
Ephesians 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Read these verses and ask are we not seeing this right now.
2Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Tmothyi 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
We can all voice our opinion on all the wicked events at hand but…..have we been in prayer for our country? Have we been in prayer for one another? Have we called out to the Lord for peace, salvation of the lost, and eyes to be opened. Too many people are being dragged right into Satan’s plans of causing division, causing us to hate and the Lord tells us not to hate. We are seeing the outcome of not keeping the Lord as our focus, and it is caused from denying God and making ourselves God. This is all caused by sin and allowing our flesh to rule us. This is what sin can do to a nation, to people of all races; which by the way the only race the Lord sees is the human race. He looks at us as Saved going to heaven with him for all eternity, or Lost rejecting him and spending eternity in hell. At the judgement seat we will not be able to say I did this because of the black person, I did this because of the white man, I did this because my wife, my husband, the government, the Police. Do any one of us really believe God the creator, he who parted the red sea, gave sight to the blind, and raised himself and others from the dead can’t see what is going on in anyone of our lives? He knows our every thought, our every hurt, our every tear. Do you know he has our tears in heaven (not sure how that works but it sure shows who he is). Did you know sometimes he doesn’t intervene because we try and handle it yourself thinking I know better than you God. We as PEOPLE need to get on our knees in prayer and get over ourselves, and ask the Lord what he would have us to do. If we are making choices that are questionable ask yourself if Jesus was sitting here with me would I continue on this path. People also need to take responsibility and accountability for all the choices we have made.
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
1John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
1John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
After what he has done for us, maybe it is time to do as he would have us to do according to him and not ourself.
