Do you ever get that annoying feeling that you have no control over anything in your life? Do you ever wonder why? You go and vote for a certain government official and it’s always the other guy that gets the seat? Have you ever worked your butt to the bone for a promotion and someone else comes along and swipes it right out from under you? If that is you, then maybe you are not understanding how this world actually works, maybe you have thought more of yourself than you should, what do you think?
“Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are” (1 Corinthians 1:25-28).
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:14).
With the verses above, I have answered your question as to why certain things take place in our lives, when we believe we have the better answer. Today, with Obama as the President, we have a divided country. We have a president making a litny of executive orders without congressional authority, about almost everything and against everyone, but is there anyone asking the reason, why?
Take a look at congress, regardless of party, now ask yourself the exact same question. You may have noticed the more than 800 FEMA camps that have already been setup across our nation. Have you asked why they are here and for whom are they going to be used? Hollywood continues to crank out filth on every level. do you know why this is taking place? Earthquakes shake this earth everyday, somewhere.
Death by starvation and disease and war is a constant drone every minute of every day. So have you ever examined the reason for this? Have you ever wondered why this is, enough to truly examine the evidence and make your own decision?
“And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the Lord, and served not him. And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon” (Judges 10:6-7).
Put the emboldened areas of the previous passages together and read them, then ask yourself if this is the situation in the USA today? Have we as a nation forsaken the Lord and no longer serve the Lord, as once we did?
Take this same thing down to your level, in every day life. Now determine if you have served the Lord in everything you do…or…have you forsaken the Lord?
Judges 10:6-7 shows the judgement of the Lord on the people of Israel, how does this compare with our own issues today? Are we being judged like the Israelites, for the disdain of our Lord and Savior? I would think, you would understand that the killings of our own people in large numbers, would be proof enough.
Evidently, the majority have not caught on to the “cause and effect” by a righteous God! It is evident that the “great delusion” of God has already begun. We surgically destroy unborn babies by the millions and no one is saying anything, no one is motivating others to rally against this abomination!
Diseases are increasing and these same diseases have never been seen in all of history for they’re incurability. We have droughts in one area, flooding in another and snowstorms in another and no one is asking why this strange phenomenon is taking place, for most it is simply weather, no one is paying any attention!
No one cares anymore, about the other Americans that are starving intheirown homes or that there are no jobs to be had! What is it going to take for everyone to wake-up and look around themselve, to see thehardshipand agony of others and ask the real question: Why is this all happening here in the greatest nation ever seen on earth?
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:12-14).
If satan was never able to pull it off (usurping God), what makes anyone human think they can? That’s utter stupidity! In my mind, this nation of ours is receiving exactly what they have been asking for and as far as history goes, this nation is NOT the first to try! Remember Noah and his Ark? Remember Sodom and Gomorrah (respectively below)?
Genesis 6.1-6: “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God[Nephilim] saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There weregiants [Nephilim] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, andthat every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.”
Matthew 24.37-38: “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark.”
Genesis 19.24-26: “Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.” (Be sure to read the entire chapter of Genesis 19 for the entire story.)
It makes no sense whatsoever, for this nation of people to continually entice the judgement of God upon them, simply because they can’t see fit to turn away from their evil activities. It should be understood, by the above verses, that God is a righteous God and HE will NOT tolerate our activities! It must be understood, that we are “reaping what we have sown” over the years! God is a patient God, but we also KNOW God is only patient to a point and we have crossed that line with HIS patience! We asked for what we now suffer, our decandent and oppressive leadership, because we are too stupid to choose otherwise!
Where once we were a great nation, we are now a cesspool of ignorance and filth, rising to the nostrils of God! What is so critical to understand is this: God knew this would take place long before HE created the universe, it has come true and we are guilty beyond doubt. It began with just one person, shaking his/her fist at God and daring God to do HIS worst. As time went on, others followed suit and did the same thing until we are now in the verythroesof grief anddespair! We have vexed the ONLY one that could ever save us.
We haveessentiallyspit in the face of God Almighty with our ignorance and arrogance! And then to make things worse, we now blame God, for our actions and once again we raise our collective fists at God,believingHE is at fault. We ask ignorant questions, “Where is God in this or that?”
“Why does a supposedly loving God allow this or that?” Is it NOT evident to you, that WE have asked for HIS anger toward us and now we are seeing the results of HIS anger laid out to us? Since the days of Adam and Eve, right up to today in each and every life, it is our SIN that has brought the condemnation on us of a righteous and just God! It is in how we think, the actions wecommit, because of those thoughts, in SIN anddegradation, that destroy us, WE ARE THE PROBLEM!
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
“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” (Romans 3:16).
Romans 6:23 tells us what is wrong with you and me and what the sentence is for committing SIN, by a righteous and just God. And then in John 3:16, God shows you and me mercy through HIS SON, Jesus Christ and that we can be saved from eternal damnation in the Lake of Fire.
The most important point of this is…IT IS OUR DECISION…it is our choice, from the depths of our soul, to ask Jesus Christ to forgive me of my SIN and cover my SIN with the blood HE shed on the cross at Calvary! That is the ONLY way you or I will ever see heaven!
“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 3:16).
