This is not our world, we are foreigners in a strange land, lawlessness rules this land, there is no respect for life, in our world.
The unborn are murdered as they wait to be born, the living are stalked and killed as they go about their day, people are killed because of their ethnicity or beliefs, those in authority over the last 30 years have diminished the value of life in America so much that it is a dangerous place too serve and protect our citizens, our cities have become war zones, and killing streets, places of worship have become slaughterhouses and mankind believes they can do anything and be justified because it is what they believe and they are right.
The enemy may seem bolder but in truth, we are just becoming more aware of his tactics, and with 24 hour world news it is in our face. The enemy uses the news feeds as propaganda, too mold the minds of those who watch and wait , whose eyes are blind whose hearts are turning to stone.
Every generation has seen the society they live in change, sometimes slowly others rapidly.I think of the world I grew up in now that I am in my 50s,and it has changed very rapidly at least outwardly.
Today’s world seems to be more violent, more selfish, more arrogant, bolder and definitely more unloving and hateful.
The truth is it has always been this way, it has always been getting worse day by day. As the world passes away slowly, it pulls away from God, for it is corrupted and serves a cruel taskmaster who blinds its eyes and steals the truth from its dying hands.
The more God’s children are silent, the more the truth is buried and not recognized, this is why we must speak of the good things of God of what He has done, of what He is doing and what He will do, if we don’t speak, who will?
From the moment Jesus ascended before the crowd of witnesses, mankind has been waiting on His return, and one day soon He will come again until then we need to be about our Heavenly Fathers business.
We must be the voice of one crying in the wilderness, to prepare the way for Christ return, how do we do this you ask?
Simple we share the gospel message one person at a time, we do our part and God will do His, we aren’t going to save the world but God made a way that through His Son Christ Jesus so the world can be saved, we just need too tell them ,and let them see Him in us.
Don’t get discouraged, don’t loose heart, keep fighting the good fight of faith and know that God is in control.
God’s word says this:
“While he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what is the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these events are the beginning of labor pains. “Then they will hand you over to be persecuted, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of my name. Then many will fall away, betray one another, and hate one another. Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”Matthew 24:3-14 CSB
“Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him: We ask you, brothers and sisters, not to be easily upset or troubled, either by a prophecy or by a message or by a letter supposedly from us, alleging that the day of the Lord has come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way. For that day will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s temple, proclaiming that he himself is God. “Don’t you remember that when I was still with you I used to tell you about this?”And you know what currently restrains him, so that he will be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one now restraining will do so until he is out of the way, and then the lawless one will be revealed. The Lord Jesus will destroy him with the breath of his mouth and will bring him to nothing at the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders, and with every wicked deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth and so be saved.”
2 Thessalonians 2:1-10 CSB
“He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” After he had said this, he was taken up as they were watching, and a cloud took him out of their sight. While he was going, they were gazing into heaven, and suddenly two men in white clothes stood by them. They said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up into heaven? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come in the same way that you have seen him going into heaven.” Acts 1:7-11 CSB
“so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life. For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Anyone who believes in him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.”John 3:15-18 CSB
