My heart is still broken over the election results in our little corner of the world. Barely a Christian conservative won a seat (congrats to Ross Spano who did). Amendments stopping Obamacare and taxpayer-funded abortions were defeated.
Our solid red county is now a deep shade of socialistic, socially-liberal blue. We don’t want responsibility, we expect handouts. We don’t want to live by the biblical laws of our Creator, we want grey and compromise and fit within today’s declining culture.
And on a national level, traditional marriage went down in a blazing inferno in Maine, Maryland, Washington as those states now welcome, embrace, and celebrate the abnormality called “homosexual marriage.” If my heart is broken, I can only imagine how our Father must be feeling.
I can only think of two reasons America is now at this tragic place of demise ...
1) We are now suffering the consequences of disobedience and unbelief
Romans 1:28-32 “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”
2) The prince of the air is running out of time
We are living in the age of deception and confusion, both orchestrated by the Enemy. We need look no further than the past election to see how very deceived and confused professing “evangelical Christians” were and are.
False teaching (heresy) is the new norm from far-too-many pulpits ... trading truth for the lie that “grace covers all sin,” allowing people to live carnal lives and supporting those things Yehoveh Himself calls an abomination. Satan is alive and well and wreaking great havoc in America’s churches. And the masses are buying his lies hook, line, and sinker.
My guess is ... both reasons are true. I believe He’s spoken. You’ve made your bed, now lie in it.
Do not expect things to go well in this country. In fact, I would say the looming “fiscal cliff” will be mild in comparison to what awaits us ... but it will set off the unstoppable domino effect. Those who choose to keep their heads in the sand; give in to compromise; embrace political correctness; and pervert the Word of Yehoveh will pay a horrible, eternal price.
Lest you think I exaggerate, read the book of Revelation (there is a promised blessing when we do) and then, turn to 2 Kings 6 beginning in verse 24 and read what resulted from one great famine, which will be mild in comparison to the famine -and depravity- which is coming.
