This morning while praying against this evil of the N.Y. Governor making law for babies to be killed up to their time of birth, the thought came to me (PLUNK) that this EVIL has woken up God’s people to action just like Obama’s presidency woke us up to action – seeing what we were about to lose.
When God’s people are self-satisfied and complacent instead of active and watchful, tails instead of heads, self-serving instead of servants of God, carnal instead of godly, idolaters instead of true worshippers of the Lord our God – evil runs wild and free. And we can see this has happened because evil has been free to bear its evil fruit throughout America.
What is the ‘fruit of evil?’ When a nation’s laws and courts protect evil and condemn righteousness. When parents give their children over to be taught by the wicked; taught that good is evil and evil is good. When the nation’s citizens become the government’s slaves and the slaves like it. When men want to be women and women want to be men. When a ‘family’ is considered any group of people with the same goals and desires. When the godless that govern rule over the godly differently than how they rule over the godless – with a definite double standard. Let’s see…….what else? What else do we see in America’s decline?
How very sad that America’s culture has had to become all this for God’s people to wake up, wise up and get to work in the Name of the Lord – for the good of society.
“Justice has been driven back, and righteousness just stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, and honesty is not allowed to enter.” (Isaiah 59:14)
“She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her – but now murderers!” (Isaiah 1:21)
“Rise up, O Judge of all the earth….How long will the wicked gloat and triumph? They pour out arrogant words; all workers of iniquity freely boast without a fear. They viciously crush Your people. They kill and murder, and think, ‘God does not see; He pays no attention.” Take notice, O senseless people! O fools, when will you become wise? Your Creator, the One who affixed the ear, can He not hear you? The One who formed the eye, can He not see you? He who cautions and rebukes the nations, does He not discipline and punish? He who teaches man, does He lack knowledge? The Lord knows the thoughts of man, that they are futile. BLESSED is the man YOU discipline, O Lord, and teach from Your Law, to grant him relief from days of trouble, until a pit is dug for the wicked. For the Lord will not forsake His people that cry out to Him; He will never abandon His promises to them.
“The Lord says: ‘SURELY JUDGMENT WILL AGAIN BE RIGHTEOUS, and all the upright in heart will follow it. WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME against the wicked? WHO WILL STAND FOR ME against the workers of iniquity?……Can a corrupt government be My ally – one devising wickedness by decree; when they band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death?….I will bring upon them their own iniquity and destroy them for their unrepentant wickedness.’” (Psalm 94 in part)
“Return, O faithless children, declares the Lord; for I AM your master!” (Jeremiah 3:14)
“To HIM who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His own blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve our heavenly Father – to HIM BE GLORY and POWER for ever and ever! AMEN!” (Revelation 1:5-6)
