Commentary by: Gordon King
As the world turns uglier each and every day, the wicked and sinful behavior of man grows stronger. As man becomes more distant from God Almighty, He becomes more distant from the world. It is not God who causes these evil deeds to occur and persist, but it is man and evil, demonic spirits.
God loves the world and those in it. He wants nothing more than the world to love Him back. But the majority of the world has pushed Him aside, out of their lives, out of their world, out of their very existence. The continuation of rebelling against God will end in Judgment.
Without God, the world will endure increased pain and suffering. We will see an increase in evil, violence, natural disasters, man-made disasters, accidents, pestilence, starvation, and death. God will lift his veil of protection from the world, except for those who love Him. That does not mean that Christians will not suffer pain, suffering, and tribulation, we will indeed.
But God does use pain and suffering for the good of those that love Him (Romans 8:28). Pain and suffering can bring us closer to God, closer in our faith.
I believe that we are about to see a significant increase in pain and suffering that the world has never known. An increase in disasters, both man-made and natural, disease, starvation, war, and death. I can see it increasing as I write this post. Earthquakes have been increasing in intensity and frequency throughout the world. Disasters have been increasing throughout the globe. Diseases have been increasing and killing in mass. Things that were considered good and moral, are now being seen by most of the world as evil and abominable.
Sometimes God uses disaster to wake us up from our slumber, to give the world a wake up call. To bring them to repentance and salvation. Yet more times than not, the world does not heed His call.
America is in deep trouble. Our government is pushing God out. Out of government, out of schools, out of society in general. This is a terrible and cataclysmic mistake. The further our country pushes God away, the more we will see an increase in moral decay and evil acts. God has given America more protection and blessings than the world has ever known. Yet America has been turning it’s back on God in rebellion. How much longer will God have mercy on us? How long will His patience last?
We must pray for America and our leaders to come back to God. To embrace God in all that it does. It is not too late.
Father in heaven hear my prayers. America has been on a fast track away from you oh Lord God. Running in the opposite direction. I pray God Almighty, that you have mercy upon us, have patience with us, and forgive us of our sins against you oh Mighty One. I pray that you lead us back to you Lord God. That our leaders and citizens recognize the errors of their ways. That they repent of their evil ways and accept you into their lives. I pray for you to pour out your Holy Spirit upon us all in truth, love, kindness, repentance, forgiveness, and acceptance of you oh Lord. I give you thanks, praise, worship and all of the glory! Amen
God Bless my friends!
