Genesis 6:5 "Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."
As we look around, it sure seems that the hearts and thoughts of many are evil continually! Are people hoping that America can be great again? The Bible says there is nothing new under the sun. History is repeating itself, and very few are paying attention. The churches are silent, and the protests are few, even to protect those innocent who can't speak for themselves.
In the post-mid-term election, we saw ominous bills passed in states like California, Vermont, and Michigan. They truly tell us what time it is. I think Pastor Jack Hibbs said it the best:
“Perhaps more than anything, the loss of Proposition 1 is a revelation of just how irrelevant the church at-large is in California. This reality is due to the lack of pastors understanding what the calling to the pulpit means. We must not only preach the gospel to the lost, but sadly there’s a profound disconnect at making disciples. Jesus said, 'Let your light so shine before the world,' and we did not. The California Christian community failed to show up to defend the unborn child, but for the few who did—their consciences are clear before the Lord.”
--Pastor Jack Hibbs, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills
We know from scripture that God will again destroy the earth, this time by fire. We continue to see the lawlessness and evil thoughts of man increase in intensity.
The mid-term elections showed the heart of America. America does not want God or His principles to rule the land. We are in a very dangerous position, and we should expect to see darkness increase.
Don't be weary, and don't give up! Paul said in Hebrews, "let us run with endurance the race that is set before us."
Don't grow weary, don't give up. Let us stand for righteousness and bring Him glory!
