I know many of you as myself are very sad at much of the goings on in this wicked world. As the Lord warned us of things to come, and we see it in Isaiah the following:
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isaiah 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isaiah 5:23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
For those of us that are trusting Jesus as Lord and Savior we have hope and peace, but sadness for those rejecting Jesus. Sadness for those who have neither hope or peace.
The Lord also warns us of how things will be in the last days in 2 Timothy he tells us:
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.
2Timothy 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.
In years past I used to think how could all these things come to be. I didn’t understand there ever being a time that the Sodom and Ghmorrah would be repeated but again he tells us in Romans:
Romans 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Romans 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Romans 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Romans 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
After so long of rejecting God will turn us over to what we desire. We have free will, and he will never make anyone love him, trust him, or spend all eternity in Heaven with him if they choose not to.
This world is so pushing so many awful things and so many are buying right into it. There are people apologizing for the color of their skin, God created each and everyone of us; how do you suppose he feels when we hate our own skin color, or hate someone due to the color of their skin? We are telling him he did an awful job. People are idolizing criminals and yet young children being executed, murdered, and people still don’t speak up just keep defending the wicked. We have to realize the Lord tells us man will let us down, there are some wicked people in all walks of life God tells us to pray for them and to allow him to take care of the wicked…
Romans 12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
Romans 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
Romans 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Romans 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
Please don’t listen to me PRAY AND ASK THE LORD what he wants of you. Please if you’re not saved, born-again come unto Jesus TODAY…Time is short..we are not promised tomorrow…When we stand before the Lord and all will someday we will not be able to blame anyone for our bad behaviors. Our choices that we make, we will answer for good ones and bad ones. Pray for one another, pray for the lost, the hurting, the children.
So much more I could say but most important is for all of us, black, white, red, Jew, Gentile (which is how the Lord sees us not by color of our skin). He also sees only his children and the rejectors which are of Satan (the Lord tells us this). The important thing is to call upon Jesus today. If you are his child through his precious blood, and his grace’ then pray, and pray more for all the world to see the Truth, hope, and peace in Jesus.
John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
