Judges 21 'Consequences of decisions made without considering the possible fall out'
We live in a world where 'Right' is wrong and 'Wrong' has become right. Let's face it folks, this is not going to change! The scriptures don't lie!
As I watch the catastrophic fall of America, and how those in power seem only to be concerned with their own agendas, I am reminded of what God's word says to God's people...Let not your heart be troubled....I have a place prepared for you! I can rejoice because this place, PLANET EARTH, is not my home. I have made an investment in my ultimate dwelling place called, Heaven.
In the mean time, my request of God has been to 'Rule In The Affairs of Men', so that His people can live a peaceful and quiet life marked by godliness and dignity here on the earth (1 Tim.2:2).
It is disturbing to see the great moral decline of our world, let alone the entire country. It is deplorable that men who lack integrity, and respect for human beings are praised and given positions of power and authority. It is mind boggling how so many go along with what seems to be blatantly wrong. But again, I am reminded of the Words of My Lord which clearly outline for us what we can expect while living in the last days of 'The Last Days'.
As I read through the entire book of Judges, It is clear that although things have changed, things remain the same. There were decisions made by Israel, whose fall out they later regretted because they simply didn't think things through. They failed to take into consideration what would happen as a result, and the outcome for all.
So here we are. There is a tremendous price to be paid for willful acts. The things we do in our youth do follow us, be it good or bad. Never get it twisted! There is a consequence for every action that a man takes. It may not appear to be so, or vividly seen by the naked eye, but God's Word tells me it is so, and I believe it.
We, as a nation, will reap the rewards of all bad decisions made by those in power. We are going to see the spill out like never before. Things are going to get so bad, that many will fear and tremble. It's coming sooner than we think.
So, I say to all those who profess to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, 'Cast not away thy confidence'! God's promises are sure and true. It's all going to go down just the way God said it would. We know how the story ends.
If you have been slack with your walk with God, indifferent, or carnal, now is the time to get up and mean business with God! Don't take Him for granted. Don't trample on the Grace of God. Remember this, judgement will begin with His people!
Let us hold fast to His promises. Let us look to Him from whence cometh our help. Let us keep the faith no matter what. Let us be the best representative for Him on the face of this earth!
WE ARE UNDER GOD'S UMBRELLA! WHAT BETTER PLACE TO BE?
