 Thought For Today - January 29
  Have We Been spanked?


    The bible tells us how the prophets of Israel warned God's people, the nation of Israel, that because of their turning away from him and their worship of idols, and committing all kinds of whoredoms, adultery, fornications, even offering their children to be burned as sacrifices in the fires of false gods, and turning their backs on him who had loved them and delivered them out of bondage from Egypt: that unless they turned back to him in repentance and obedience, he would have to bring judgment and destruction upon them which history has shown did actually happen. Just one example is the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
    I wonder if perhaps, through some of our natural disasters, which has brought so much misery to so many people, and has left so many dead and homeless, that God may be warning us as individuals and as a nation that unless we turn back to him in repentance and ask forgiveness for our sins and idolatry; unless we turn from our killing of our children through abortions; unless we stop our whoredoms and fornications; and stop worshipping the idol of sex, money, and power, and return to a revival of the Christian principles upon which this nation was founded; and instead of glorifying "mother nature" which is a non-entity, and recognize that it is God the father who is sovereign over the elements and the entire universe, that there may be worse things to come.
    We may have just received a mild spanking from a loving father to warn us of worse things to come in way of judgment. May we as individuals, and as a nation not wander so far away from God that he has to rebuke us or draw us back to himself through his anger, wrath, and hot displeasure.
"O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure." Psalm38: 1.
