Long ago in the history of man, there were civilizations that made the grave error of not just ignoring or even deliberately breaking the laws of God and then flaunting their sin as if it were something to celebrate. As the Scriptures tell us “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God”. And it is in the nature of the internal denial, which is really a statement that says to God or to Jesus, “We will not have this man to rule over us”. Man rejects the appointed authority of God and from this point the slide to perversity, and murder and all manner of depravity begins.
When God is our authority we have His “umbrella” of protection over us and our families. Don’t take that to mean that tragedy will not strike or awful things happen to some of us. We do not know what God will allow evil to do to us but we can always count on His love for us and His commitment to the agreement that exists between those who claim His Son as Savior and Himself.
The world may think that for a time they do not have to answer to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but know this, the time of judgement is coming and the creator of the universe will hold court and be righteous in His judgements and there will be no denial of His power and His righteousness when all will bow the knee to Him. For some that day will be a terrible day, but for some it will be “heaven sent”.
Blessings on you and your families as we go through the travail that is day to day life in the America, a nation that was once dedicated to serving the true God, but has walked away from both its first love and its commitments and is even now sliding on its way to judgement. May God see fit to spare the righteous and if not that he will pour His love and grace into and through us as we walk through the fire.
