(There is a special message at the end of this article for those who do not have Jesus in their life and are looking for peace and a way to better understand the present-day insanity and confusion.)
For anyone that has ever done this, the story is invariably the same. We would make a snowball at the top of a hill, making it as large as we could manage, roll it to the edge and push it over. Then watch it gain in size as it picks up speed. When it reached the bottom, depending on what “the bottom” was like, it would either collide with something or roll to a stop. If it collided with something significant, it would be destroyed. If it didn’t collide with anything but instead rolled to a stop, it would be destroyed by time and elements, OR, we would destroy it ourselves by jumping on it in a frenzy of fun. Either way, the end result was the same. Destruction and the end of it.
We have a snowball that is currently rolling downhill. It has attained a frightening speed. It is not a relatively harmless wad of frozen water. It is evil. Unbridled, uninhibited evil; rolling downhill and gaining momentum every single day.
God warned us about this in His Word in Paul’s letter to Timothy (2 Timothy 3:1-5).
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
“Without natural affection” explains a great deal in the present day. So also does “Traitors.”
God’s warnings have largely been ignored. So, here we are.
Over the centuries, this evil snowball has grown under the surface like a cancerous tumor, and no amount of human-initiated treatments are going to be able to stop it or even slow it down now. It has too much momentum. We have waited too long. It has grown; fostered and nurtured by the most evil one; unnoticed or willfully unacknowledged, because we were busy and distracted by everyday life or by the pursuit of worldly happiness or, perhaps, too busy ourselves to take note of it. I include myself in the “we.” I wish it were not so, but it is.
It has now become a malignant monster of not just “ordinary crime,” like stealing or general lawbreaking (here meaning breaking of basic laws of human conduct, which ARE based on the design of the Lord of creation). No, it has become a perversion of science, extortion by climate lies, terrorism by pandemic falsehoods, a proclamation of biological impossibilities, a forcing of vileness and sickening monstrous philosophies on innocent children and insisting on everyone else viewing it as normal or acceptable behavior, and, of people giving in to it out of fear or a desire for “peace and safety.”
A classic case of feeding the alligator, hoping it eats you last, and eat it will; it is never satisfied. It includes the murdering of defenseless elderly because they are viewed as “useless eaters.”
And murder, that’s the right term, murder, of soon-to-be-born human beings; innocent and alive. They will not be an aardvark, a horse, or a tyrannosaurus: HE or SHE would be a human being created by God, in His image. And now these monsters want to murder them AFTER they have been born!
Infanticide! A fluffy term for demonic, maniacal murder! Sacrificing to Molech. What would soon have been a walking, talking, reasoning, rationalizing, loving and worthy person. And worse, buying and selling children for the most abominable purposes in order to gain money to spend on… what?… gold and silver to hoard?
“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats” (Isaiah 2:20).
What does the Lord have to say about this? “And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord GOD;)” (Ezekiel 16:23). God does not slumber; neither does He sleep.
“There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community” (Proverbs 6:16-19). (Emphasis added by me).
What can possibly be the end result of defying and hating God? Moreover, even if they claim not to believe in Him but in their own “belief system,” what possible outcome can there be to this kind of behavior… being the rulers of the world?
What on earth do the purveyors of this madness think they are going to inherit? What on earth do the purveyors of this madness think they are going to rule over?
Reeled in like a dying fish by the globalist, God-hating mindset: “They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for ‘people are slaves to whatever has mastered them'” (2 Peter 2:19).
The fool* says in his heart, “There is no God” (Psalms 14:1). *The Hebrew words rendered fool throughout the Psalms denote one who is morally deficient.
“Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy” (Proverbs 6:15). (Emphasis added by me).
There are many who say, “but how does a loving God allow these things to happen?”
That is one bird that is not going to fly. We have laws prohibiting these kinds of things and the mechanism to enforce them. WE have allowed them to happen.
Humankind has intentionally ignored these laws or twisted them willfully out of context for so long that the snowball effect is now on an exponential curve that has developed a life (or, more accurately, death) of its own.
The world system is so corrupt that it is eating itself alive unto death. Fortunately, it is thus far restrained by the Mercy of God; but that is going to change.
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way” (2 Thessalonians 2:7).
Is it hopeless? In human terms, I think that is without a doubt. I think it has become obvious that human government is unable, worse, unwilling to repent. It is terminal, and it is worldwide.
In the case of America, our Constitutional laws are based on the following, defined by our own founders and based on the precepts, ordinances and counsel of God.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” (FROM JOHN ADAMS TO THE OFFICERS OF THE FIRST BRIGADE OF THE THIRD DIVISION OF THE MILITIA OF MASSACHUSETTS, 11 October 1798)
I think there is every likelihood that, as a nation, we have left that standard dying in the dusty desert of sin and rebellion against God. As a veteran, I hate to say it, truly I do, but the light shining on a hill has become a smoldering wick.
But there is hope. With our sovereign God and Savior and His beloved Spirit, there is always hope.
Now to the crux of this article.
Our God is still in control, and His promises still stand. He will complete all He has promised both to the nation of Israel and to the Church, but He has promised nothing to this country.
I believe that all of this heartache and heartbreak that we see around us is being restrained until the last person on this earth that will repent under God’s Dispensation of Grace does so.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
Like Eowen said before the charge of the Rohirrim in the movie, The Return of The King: “Courage Merry; Courage, my old friend.” We await the return of the true Author of our Salvation; King Jesus.
We must Trust God, set our faces to do His Will, and help spread the Gospel.
God has proven through fulfilled prophecy that He always keeps his Word.
For anyone who may read this article and has not trusted in Jesus Christ, and therefore, has no hope or peace in your life:
You can have that hope. You can have that peace that Jesus has promised in His Word. It requires that you come before God on His terms. And, what are His terms according to His Word?
- Genuine repentance (turning to God instead of continuing to reject or ignore Him).
- Confession of sins (that you are a sinner and acknowledge that to God).
- That you understand that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
- To acknowledge to God that you are unable to pay that debt.
- Belief that Jesus Christ paid your death sentence for you on the cross.
- To believe that Jesus is the Way, the only Way, that God has established by which humans may be saved from the consequences of their sin and rebellion.
God has made it absolutely clear that there is no one who comes before Him, under His terms, that will be refused.
- No one: no race, no color, no country of origin, regardless of any previous belief system: no one.
- No matter what your past sins have been, God can and WILL forgive you because He says He will.
- Salvation is available to everyone without any exceptions.
If you put all your trust for salvation in Jesus, and Him only, you can follow that prayer up by simply saying, “Thank you, Father God, for hearing my prayer and saving me,” because we can trust Him to keep His Word. He always has. He always will.
John 5:24: “Truly, Truly, I say to you that he who hears My words and believes the One who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned. He has crossed from death to life.”
There are no answers, and there is no hope in the world by governments, organizations, politics or politicians. There are only lies and deception. But you can have the Truth and the peace you seek.
The answers are in the Word of God. The Bible. If you ask God with all your heart, He will hear you.
“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
