Olympians turning on the flag. Men suing to use ladies restrooms. Competing riots. Political finger pointing and name calling rather than problem solving. Etc., etc., etc.! Other than not wanting people to love God, why do you think Satan is working so hard to tear apart the very fabric of our society? I think it’s because he hates the freedom that we have. He wants to see us under the control of a tyrant. And anarchy is the surest way to bring that about! Our God, on the other hand, wants us to be free! It’s interesting to note how He starts out the Ten Commandments: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.” God sent ten plagues, He killed the firstborn of Egypt, He crushed Pharaoh’s army in the Red Sea, all so that His people could be FREE! Then the first thing He did is give His people a set of moral instructions to live by, because we can’t live freely without morality! Immorality leads to chaos, chaos leads to mass destruction, mass destruction leads to a willingness to accept tyranny! It’s the same plan followed by Mao, Stalin, and Hitler, all of whom were led by their father, Satan, and I’m sad to say our country and our world is marching to that same drum beat. I’m hoping (and the news on the political and science fronts lead me to believe) that Christ’s return is near, but I have to also recognize that other generations have believed the same thing as they’ve watched their nations crumble. If Christ doesn’t return, we better work and pray for national revival. We can’t last the way we are going.
“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.”Revelation 22:20-21
