God's Soon And Coming Judgment

With the recent U.S. election now behind us we are seeing what is likely the beginning of the end of the U.S.A. as we know it. The people have voted for the most part to follow the leading of a president whom is pro-abortion, pro-gay and pro-gay marriage. He is also anti-Christian, anti-Zionist but pro Muslim bowing to a king of a pro-Islamic nation. He has apologized to Muslim nations for the success of America. The success of America came about because America was founded on Biblical beliefs and principals by the founders of America who believed in the tenants of the Bible.

But, over the years the people of America have begun to turn away from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and have begun to follow the god of this world Satan. Satan is the father of lies ("and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." John 8:44 King James Version) and has been misleading people from the beginning with Adam and Eve. He has not changed the course since, nor the ways in which he deceives.

Our God is a God of mercy and is "longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Pet. 3:9 (King James Version). But, just as a loving human father cannot allow the sins of a child to go unpunished, our Heavenly Father likewise cannot allow the sins of this world to go unpunished forever. If He were to do so, what kind of a Father would He be? It is neither wise nor loving to allow sin to go unpunished. For to do so, allows the unpunished soul to think that it is okay to sin, and therefore they will continue on in their sins. An unpunished soul will not only continue on in its sins, but its heart will become hardened not wanting any longer to be told what is right and do only what is wrong and will therefore live life accordingly doing always what is  wrong. We have a recorded scenario of just such a people in Genesis 6:5 "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." (King James Version)

God therefore commanded Noah to build an ark (huge boat) so that his family would be saved from the coming wrath (punishment) of God upon an unrepentant people. God however is not unjust and as said above is longsuffering. An earthly parent will often give warnings of a coming punishment if a child does not stop doing something wrong. God also gave plenty of time between the time of the building of the ark to the time when the rains came for the people to change their ways. God used Noah to preach to the people. He told them that God was going to destroy the earth and all of its inhabitants with a flood because of their wickedness. But, God also extended His grace to the people.  They all had the opportunity to change their ways and join Noah and his family on the ark to avoid the coming cataclysm and to be saved. But none heeded Noah and all the peoples living on the earth at that time perished in the flood except Noah his wife, his three sons; Shem, Ham, and Japheth and their wives.

The whole world today is facing the coming judgment of God because the whole world goes on today as it always does doing its own thing, neither caring for the welfare of others nor for the care of their eternal life. For they, as Jesus prophesied "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 Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Matthew 24:37-39 (King James Version). If we continue to read this discourse we see how many will be taken away when the wrath of God comes upon an unrepentant people, while those like Noah, whom hath entered Noah's ark under the umbrella of belief and obedience to God, will be saved.

God, like in the days of Noah as in the days of Adam and Eve, as in the days of the several conquests of Israel, always gives plenty of prior warnings of coming judgment because of unrepentant people. Unrepentant people go on about their business daily caring nothing about the will and ways of God. They follow the lusts of the world which are the pride of life, the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh. All sins fall under these three categories.

We only need open up the daily newspaper to see the reality of this. We read of rape and murder, of robberies of unnatural sexual lusts of every imagination. We read of liars and thieves in the halls of the government and among the business elite, the lawyers. We read of wars which are nothing but the lust of others to control the lives of other in unjust, immoral ways. And this list goes on. Every day we read of the lust of many in so many different ways, grotesque imaginations played out to the death and destruction of others. These scenarios are being played out right now, at this very moment throughout the world and in America. These scenarios are being played out 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year long, day after day.
We look to our politicians and leaders to be an example of how to live. We look to our heroes in sports and in movies to show us how to live by example. But all of these are living immoral lives just Paul wrote about in Romans chapters 1 , where every imagination of evil is listed, how they have given their lives over the follow the ways and will of Satan, living out their lives in gross sins of every kind, not willing to obey god, but creating gods of their own and following the lusts thereof of these gods.

God's Wrath on Unrighteousness (Romans 1:18-32 King James Version):

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."

Does this not sound exactly what is going on in the world today? Does not the America you once knew sound more like the above passage from the book of Romans?

And so, God has said that in the last days, the world will be just as in the days of Noah where every imagination of evil (sin) will be in the hearts of the people.  But, they will not be prepared for the coming of Christ to take away from the world the righteous in Christ.

Matthew 24:37-39 (King James Version):

"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, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

But those left behind will suffer the wrath of God as outlined in various scripture passages from Daniel, Ezekiel, Jerimiah, Revelations etc. And Jesus also prophesied what signs will be that points to the last days as given in Matthew 24:5-14 (King James Version):

"For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."


Are we not surely now witnessing these prophetic events? Surely we are.
Jesus went so far as to outline the very first sign which will show that the beginning of the last days has indeed begun . He said in "The Parable of the Fig Tree" (Matthew 24:32-33 King James Version):

"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors."

The fig tree in scriptures very often refers to the nation of Israel. There when Israel became a nation in 1947-48, this was the beginning of the last days.

Jesus gave the example in scripture of the coming tribulation sign also when he talked about a woman, when she is about to deliver the child, she begins to have birth pains. Likewise when we see these signs we know that the time of His soon coming and of the soon coming of judgment upon an unrepentant world will soon begin.

When the flood began, the door to the ark was shut, so that none could enter in. Gen. 7:16 (King James Version): "And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in."

Likewise when He sends His wrath upon the earth, none whom are not of His will enter into His coming, but they that are not of His shall be shut out, with no hope of entering in.

The wrath of God is well laid out in Revelations. It will not be a time of joy and partying. It will be as Jesus said; "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be." Matthew 24:21 (King James Version)

So, with all this said, we know that we are in the last days. God has been giving many warning signs with earthquakes and many other natural disasters as outlined in Matthew 24. All of the early warning signs have been prominently displayed for us. God's spokesmen and prophets have been warning of the times for a very, very long time. But as in the days of old the prophets were stoned and killed. Today likewise in many countries Christians are persecuted and killed. Unbelievers do not want to hear God's words. They would rather live as in the days of Noah and as some have said before, we shall party on for tomorrow we die. They do not want to believe in a loving gracious, judgmental God. They would rather live in denial. After all, if we deny we can do as we will, for nothing will happen if we deny.

How foolish we are as a people. To deny something just because we do not want to believe it is totally foolish. It is like when your mother says do not touch the wood stove when the fire is burning because you will get burned. You can deny and disbelieve all you want, but the fact is if you deny and disbelieve and indeed touch the hot stove, you will get burned. Adam and Eve chose to rather believe the liar than the truth giver, and learned the hard way, disobeying God and found out that they would indeed die if they disobeyed. No, they did not die immediately but they eventually did die. God does not always give out punishment immediately, but eventually you will face the consequences of your sins. You can deny all you want the truth, but that does not mean you are right and that the truths are wrong. Just because a seeing person tells a semi-blind person that the colour of the rose is red, the semi-blind person should believe the truth rather than deny the truth and argue that the rose is yellow. Yes, there are yellow roses, but likewise there are many out there who have and postulate half-truths, and many lies to deceive others. But those who outright deny because they do not want to believe what God says in the scriptures will one day know the truth because one day every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Rom. 14:11 "For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God." (King James Version)

"I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear." Isaiah 45:23 (King James Version)

I strongly believe that we are indeed in the last days. All the signs are in place showing us this to be true. America as well as the rest of the world has been given many natural signs with the likes of many, many natural disasters and much, much more. I suggest that perhaps hurricane Sandy and the storm following it are great signs showing God's discontent with not only America's choice of an immoral president, but also because of America's continuous flagrant denial and disobedience to God. After all a president is only a reflection of the people he is leading. God puts into place and removes kings and governments at His will. The fact that He has left the current president in place shows the hardening of the hearts of the people of America and the world. After all, if the people want to deny and disobey as in Romans chapter 2, He will harden their hearts and allow them to live as the like and allow them to reap the consequences of their sins.

Is there hope for America and the world? Yes there is. God says: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 (King James Version)

The time, however, seems to be running out. God will not allow sin to continue forever. He has laid out for us a prophesied timeline of when His judgment is coming and what the punishment and end will be. It is up to you and I now to repent and believe the simple Gospel message. "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

The choice is up to you each as individuals to believe and obey and escape the coming wrath. Your denials will not save you. The people in the days of Noah denied and did not believe in the coming flood. After all, it had never rained up to that point in history. So the people would not and did not believe that a flood was coming. Deny as much as they would, it happened. History has recorded it in books and in the geology of the world over. You can deny or accept and act accordingly.

Joshua said as he was leading the people into the Promised Land; "as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." (Joshua 24:15 King James Version) The choice is up to you. Whom will you follow and obey? Will you follow the ways of the world and Satan, or the ways and will of God? Your choice.

My Heart

Tonight my heart is in a place where, as a child, I never thought it would ever be.

As I child I was taught to trust those in authority. As a child I was taught to respect the elders in my community. As a child I was taught to respect the government. As a child I was taught to respect my parents, my siblings, even myself.

Now, some 50 plus years later, I am no longer a child. All those whom I was taught to respect, I have no respect for. They all have been an illusion, a lie. For, to have respect of another, the other must also respect that which should accept their respect. But these have all let me down. There is no respect among my fellow human beings, one to another.

I look across the seas, and I see disrespect between nations, one to another. I see across the seas, that the people within these other nations likewise have no respect for one another. So, logically this would lead me to believe that disrespect is not just a local problem, but a worldwide problem.

As a child I was taught that we are to love one another. But watching the news, reading the newspapers, hearing the talk of others, one to another on the street, shows me that we do not love one another.

If we all loved one another, if we all respected one another, would we lie, steal cheat, hurt, diss one another, call others names, cause division between each other  etc. Apparently we do. Because I hear the phrase everywhere, "I love you." Is it a lie? I think perhaps it is a lie. It is a deception, being manipulated by the god of this world.

Satan from the time of Adam and Eve has been playing with people's minds all over the world. He manipulates situations to make it appear that what we say, think, hear, do is all right and wonderful. Is it all right and wonderful when there is no love, no respect between fellow human beings? I think not.

Tonight as I read the headlines and heard of the terrible tragedy in Connecticut, where a young man shot and killed 20 innocent children, his mother and others, my heart was grieved. I was reminded of the many shootings in recent years, where young men shoot others, massively and otherwise for no apparent reasons. I was reminded that my theory that there is no love, no respect for others is true.

Scripture tells us that in the last days, it would be like this. It tells us that as it was in the days of Noah, likewise it would be here on earth in these last days. For then, as in now, men's hearts were bent on all things evil continually. And so it would appear to be true.

The source of evil, though begun by Satan, also lives in our hearts. There is no good thing in our hearts, there is none good the Scriptures tell us.
Is this our fate? To be a dying world, where evil will triumph and that man would destroy himself as some have predicted?

It is said, that a young man who had been playing basketball, upon entering the change room to take a shower, found the janitor sitting on a bench reading the Bible. He asked the older man: "Do you understand what you are reading? Do you believe it?" The janitor replied, "yes I understand and believe. In the end we win!"

Do we win, on our own strength? Or is there another whom will lead the battle and lead us in the charge, lead us to victory? Or are we doomed to see our own destruction, with the world being destroyed by the thousands of nuclear bombs that are scattered among the nations?  Will this be our end?  Will this be our legacy to be found maybe millions of years from now from another race, another planet, when perhaps they scrape through the ashes and discover a planet that destroyed itself because there was no respect, no love among its inhabitants?

If I were to come up with another word which describes the malady of this planet, it would be pride. It was pride that caused the adversaries downfall. It is pride that is behind every source of evil. For it is because the world all over which cries "Me, mine, I," that there is evil in this world. It is because of pride that there is no respect, no love between the nations, between individuals.

Shall I cry myself to sleep tonight fearing that Satan has won the battle, that there is no hope for this fallen world? Shall I bend over and kiss my butt goodbye? For today I party on, tomorrow I die.

Thankfully, the janitor is right, we win, or rather should I say we become the victors, for we have an advocate in Jesus Christ whom has already won the war. The end has already been proclaimed. The victory has been won. It is just a matter of the Great Judge to pass sentence on Satan and his followers.

Once that is done, there will be no more tears, no more pain, no more hate. Love will reign, pride will be no more. Disrespect will have been vanquished.
Have you read the book? Have you believed in the One in Whom will be our hero, our King, our Lord and Savior?

What will you do with Jesus? That after all is the ultimate question. Will you love and respect Him, or will you chase after pride and meet your own destruction?

Now, that I have surveyed the beginning to the end, I am no longer saddened, but am filled with joy, knowing like as the janitor knew, we win.
However, there is still one last point. Shall I wait till the Lord comes to respect and love my fellow inhabitants on this earth? Or shall I repent and have a change of heart and begin now to have respect and love for my neighbor?

As I child I was taught to trust those in authority. As a child I was taught to respect the elders in my community. As a child I was taught to respect the government. As a child I was taught to respect my parents, my siblings, even myself.

Yes, I point my finger at myself when I say there is no respect and love in this world. I too am guilty, I too have a prideful heart.

But, to Him I owe, my love, my respect, my devotion, my loyalty till we shall meet Him in eternity because of the cross. How about you?
