Most people tend to think that folks are basically good. But the Bible shows something very different.
Speaking of humankind — it tells us: “The way of peace they do not know, and there is no justice in their paths” (Isaiah 59:8). “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked ... who can know how bad it is?” (Jeremiah 17:9). “Their feet are swift to shed blood: destruction and misery are in their ways and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Romans 3:10-18).
Consider some of the major wake-up calls that have shouted for Americans’ attention in the past few years: 9/11/2001, the 2008 global financial crisis, the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, the California fires, the riots and protests in 2020. A number of police stations were attacked.
“Every city, every town, burn the precincts to the ground!” became a popular chant. Over 1,300 officers have been injured, more than a dozen killed, and one shot in the head from behind.
Our national blessing has disappeared. We have forgotten God.
Excluding Fox, the news media is the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party. Example: for Donald Trump’s triumphs in the Middle East, he received no air time when he was nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. The Democrat-controlled House recently voted to allow illegal immigrants to vote in U.S. elections. They want to knock down all border barriers, give illegals free health care and education, and defund the police. Seventy percent of Democrat voters favor socialism (communism).
HBO’s Bill Maher said “One way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy, so please, bring on the recession!” In 2016 they talked about the need to impeach Trump and remove him from office by “any means possible.” First, the Russia hoax, then fanning the flames of nationwide riots and looting in hopes this would help them seize power on November third.
Make no mistake, powerful forces are at work to destroy America and other nations whose history and culture is rooted in the Bible. And it will grow far worse as this age of human misrule draws to its dangerous end. Make no mistake: Joe Biden and his allies are a “Trojan Horse” and what’s in that horse is an angry leftist plot to take down America.
The deadliest virus that we have now is the human heart, but a new heart can come through the transformative power of God’s Holy Spirit. We can’t do this on our own. Only when we repent of our sins, turn to Jesus Christ and believe in Him as our Lord and Savior, can this be accomplished. Are we willing to seek the cure for the “deadliest virus?”
“Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:6-7). Revelation 19:11, 13 & 16 proclaims that Jesus is the “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” For everyone who puts his or her faith in Jesus, heaven awaits.
The Rock that I’m standing on will still be here when the world is gone, the “Rock of Ages,” Jesus Christ my Lord.
