I sometimes fear for our great country, that we might ever be becoming more ripe for the judgment of God, because, more and more it seems that in order to be politically correct, we must turn our backs on absolute truth, and be disobedient to the moral laws and commandments of God and the values of our fathers that once made our land, America, the leader among nations., but more recently those values are being compromised and corrupted, and turned inside out, so to speak, particularly in governmental circles.
A warning was issued by the prophet Isaiah to the nation of Israel many centuries ago that because of this very thing, judgment was pending, and history has proven that judgment did come just as Isaiah had predicted.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5: 20.
Who can deny that this is taking place in America today? That which God calls evil, men consider it to be normal and right, and that which God says is good, men ridicule as being old fashioned and irrelevant in today's society. Principles that are being taught and fostered in our educational system today are in direct opposition to the principles that a Holy God has laid down in his Holy Word. According to worldly standards, darkness is considered light, and light is to be considered to be darkness, and bitter is sweet, and sweet is bitter.
“Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight.” Isaiah 5: 21.
Men and women of science, so called, who in their estimation of themselves and their work, think that by their own intelligence and wisdom, they can solve all the mysteries of life and the universe without bringing into their laboratory any consideration of the supernatural intelligence and power of our living God. They prefer to give credit for unexplainable events in the universe to “mother nature” rather than to our “Father God”
“Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!” Isaiah 5:22.23
Instead of being influenced by the spirit of God as God had intended for his creation, men have in the past and still are today, making important and crucial decisions and laws under the influence of alcohol, and drugs, and mind controlling substances. Also, who will deny that many times the wicked are justified and criminals go free through bribes and payoffs of the wealthy in high places.
We must take heed to our ways lest we be judged and destroyed as a free nation under God. We as Christians, in particular, must take our head out of the sand, come out of our secluded closets, and let those in authority know that we want truth – God's truth, his morality and his righteousness to prevail in our country. God is not mocked, he is the same today as he was in Isaiah's day.
“Therefore, as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so, their root shall be as rottenness. And their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the holy one of Israel. Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.” Isaiah 5: 24,25.
God will surely spare us and bless us if we will sincerely turn back to him, confess our sins, and seek his righteousness. My God truly bless America!
