I recently saw the front cover of TIME magazine as we were in the checkout line at the grocery store. It had the “highlights” or year in review from 2015. As I looked at the front cover, I couldn’t help but notice two things in particular. One was a picture of the White House lit up like a rainbow in celebration of same-sex “marriage,” which is an abomination before God (Leviticus 20:13), and two “innocent children” and refugees in a boat “escaping” their homeland to “take refuge” somewhere else. It makes a person wonder as to how far the media and this administration will go to blatantly lie, deceive, and defraud the American people.
I could go into the fact that these “refugees” that are invading Europe are not innocent women and children, but rather a majority of military-aged men, who are destroying everything in their path. However, my real point here is the fact that as the world looks in reflection on 2015 and the highlights from the past year, what they see as victories, God looks on as abominable works.
The Bible says in Proverbs 6:16-19, “These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.” Does this not sum up as a whole to what we are seeing in America today?
Do you think that the Lord looks on and is pleased with this being the year that Planned Parenthood was exposed for selling the body parts of innocent babies and the American people, for the most part, and Congress did virtually nothing about it? (Proverbs 6:16-17) Do you think that the Lord is pleased that over this past year marriage between sodomites, ,hich has never been in the history of mankind, was thrust down the throats of the American people by lawless Supreme Court Justices?
Peter and the other apostles in the book of Acts chapter 29 said, “…We ought to obey God rather than men.” And so it is with any true Christian. We obey the laws of man so far as they are in agreement with the Law of God! Men playing God with marriage, which the Lord specifically designed for a man and woman (Ephesians 5:31), will not go over well with Almighty God and America is reaping and is sure to reap more repercussions because of it (Galatians 6:7).
Or what of another year of lawless activity by this administration? Do you think the Lord is pleased with the American people who have stood by and done virtually nothing about this lawless individual in the White House? I saw a post or two on Facebook where people were rejoicing that it was the last year of Obama’s presidency, but I do think they failed to realize how foolish that sounds and how absolutely inconceivable it is that the American people would let another year of lawlessness and abuses go by without doing anything about it?
That’s like telling a disobedient, lawless, and rebellious child, who is defying you as a parent, “Just wait until next year, you’ll be gone!”
“Great!” says the kid, “I got another whole year to defy you!”
How is that right?
I recently saw a movie that was based on the true story of what happened to the Jews in Austria by the Nazis. A line in this show struck me as two men were talking. One man was saying to the other about how the Nazis were going to take over the country and when he believed that would happen, and the other man said, “The Austrian people would never allow it to happen.” Boy was he wrong. The Austrian people did allow it to happen and many Jews were killed or had to escape for their lives because of it.
I don’t think much will change with the American people until tyranny comes knocking personally at their front door. We have been given many warnings by a very merciful God. He has uncovered thousands of lawless acts by this administration, and yet is there an uproar? No. Is there an all-out protest being held by the American people in capitals throughout the United States and Washington DC itself? No. For the most part, men and women remain silent, busy with their own little lives and nothing really ever changes.
I feel the American people will have to learn the hard way just as folks did in the Bible (Read the book of Judges). The disobedient people or nation would turn their backs on God and rebel in lawlessness against Him. And because of this, God would have to severely judge them and allow their enemies to overtake them before they would repent and turn from their wicked ways back unto Him. The fate of America lies in our hands, but that’s what scares me. It lies in the hands of a majority of apathetic, disobedient, immoral, and lawless people, who care more about their entertainment than about preserving freedom for their posterity.
This is the challenge we face in our generation. We will either rise to the occasion or take our place in history as another nation that fell, due to its apathy and its blatant rejection of God and His Law.
