The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the Lord has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the Lord our God will destroy them. Psalm 94:21-23
It seems that we are living in a “WORLD of LAWLESSNESS,” a world where wrong doing has become the norm and RIGHTEOUS LIVING has become a THREAT to society. There is something TRAGICALLY wrong with this scenario. But I believe that we are living in the last days, and are seeing biblical prophecy unfolding before our very eyes.
In 2Thessalonians 2:7, the Apostle Paul is telling the believers in Thessalonica that: “the secret power of lawlessness is already at work;” and if Paul felt that way in his day, I wonder what he would think about today. In 1 Timothy 1:8-9, Paul tells Timothy that: “we know that the law is good if one uses it properly. We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for the lawbreakers and rebels.” Amazing how we see just the opposite happening NOW, the lawbreakers are allowed to break the laws and the law enforcement officers are told to ‘stand down’ and do nothing. (i.e. Riots, looting, arson, and murders).
We have one running for the highest office in our land, who has openly stated their support for an organization that upholds the LAWLESS behavior of those who break the law. And yet a righteous person is NOT allowed to run their OWN business the way they feel God would have them run it. “The wicked band together against the righteous.”
But the righteous can take heart, because, the Lord is our FORTRESS, and God is our ROCK and our REFUGE. There is SOON coming a day when He will repay them, the wicked, for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness. God’s judgment is coming, and the time is NOW, to get things RIGHT with Him. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to Him, you will be considered among the wicked, and will face JUDGMENT at the hands of the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE. However, He is giving you the opportunity NOW, to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become His RIGHTEOUS CHILD, and TRUST Him as your FORTRESS, ROCK, and REFUGE. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
