Address the current climate of the world today.
At least the climate and temperature of the USA. The country that my husband swore an oath to.. An oath to fight for its citizens’ rights and freedoms. An oath to protect, serve and uphold its Constitution as an active duty member of the United States Military until he was medically discharged after the First Gulf War in 1993.
It disturbs me to see how far removed we have become from our Christian roots. From the ideals of our founding fathers.
Far removed from reason, sanity and humanity. I agree that things need to change. Many, many things…
Currently, we’re at the tipping point in so many ways and in so many areas. It makes me weary to think about all of the trouble in this world right now. I also feel like I just used ‘many‘ too ‘many’ times.. but, there it is..
COVID-19, loss of jobs, people at odds with who should or shouldn’t be wearing a mask, the actual death count/rate, Government overreach, kids missing a whole half year of school, high suicide rate, the murder of George Floyd and others at the hands of ill-trained or jaded / tired / weary police.
A FEW bad apples ruining the careers and lives of the honest, hard working, heart to serve the public police officers who are now unfairly targeted by angry mobs that have overtaken whole sections of cities.
I understand anger, I understand the need for change HOWEVER; burning down, looting and vandalizing honest business owners’ properties solves nothing. The tragic current events are just an excuse for a select group of persons to take advantage of a situation for their own greed and gain.
Another issue brewing is the move for people who were decedent from slaves want reparations from current day folks who had nothing to do with their ancestor’s owning slaves.
The truth is, most peoples were slaves at one point in history or other.
The Irish, Italians, Africans, Hebrews and others.. . No one in modern day is responsible for ANY of these peoples’ being enslaved. Not one. So I do not agree with reparations. If reparations are given to one group, then they should ALL be paid for former pain and suffering.
However; NO amount of monies can bring back, heal those who had been hurt, abused or lost at the hand of cruel masters. So why are reparations needed? NOTHING can “repair” that damage. NOTHING except forgiveness and a desire to move forward instead of dwelling on past grievances.
Forgiveness is to set YOURSELF FREE. Forgiveness does NOT mean letting the offending party “off the hook” but, instead forgiveness is necessary so that you are NOT weighed down by bitterness, anger and hatred in your heart. You can never move forward if you’re always looking back. . .
AND.. Another truth while we’re speaking it. . .
No group of people have been more persecuted and enslaved throughout history than the Jewish nation. Hebrews, Israelites. Whatever name you wish to call them, THEY ARE the MOST persecuted and enslaved, hated race on the face of the planet.
Present day issues are clouded, muddled and confusing.
Friends ‘unfriend’ or ‘block’ each other on social media because of polarized views on the latest news / event / crisis / upheaval.
Voices with reasonable and legitimate concerns are drowned out by violent mobs of “protesters” who loot, burn, vandalize and just want to further their own lawless, selfish agendas.
Clarity is lost. Lawlessness and violence rule the day.
God’s Word said these days would come. Hello! They’re here.
Evil in the Last Days Timothy 3:1
1 But understand this. In the last days terrible times will come.
2For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,…
Cross References 1 Timothy 4:1
Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons,
2 Timothy 4:3
For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires.
when they said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow after their own ungodly desires.”
If these scripture passages don’t describe the current conditions and climate of our world, I don’t know what does. . . These were written thousands of years ago. Predicted, prophesied by people of great faith by inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
The times are only getting worse. They will continue to build and get worse UNTIL. . .
A false sense of peace and safety falls on the land. It will be short lived.
THEN… The LORD will return and call His church home. All those who believe in Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior shall be taken up in the clouds with Him in the blink of an eye. . .
I, for one, cannot wait until that day. Until I can leave this messy world behind and sit at the feet of my Jesus.
I wish you all peace. May the LORD be with you and come quickly to save us all from ourselves.
