NOW IS ALWAYS THE CORRECT TIME TO ASK FOR HELP FROM GOD !!!
Matthew 12:25 “…..Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”
This statement seems to be fairly simple to understand and no interpretation should be able to alter the meaning, but let us examine one aspect that may not be so obvious. Jesus makes this statement so, therefore it is not only true but it is a guarantee. He does not say that it “may” not stand, He tells it that it “shall” not stand. It is arguably a fair statement to say that there is very little going on in the world today that it not divided in some way. And, if this is the case, then it is only a matter of time before this whole mess collapses on top of us. Some would say that it already is and they are correct. Now is not the time to argue politics and various political party platforms because it is all meaningless anyway. Now is the time to take our heads out of the sand and recognize what is happening. If we continue as we are, we are doomed to failure and it is very possible that we have already reached the point of no return.
Making changes is never easy, but before anything can change, people have to want it to change. The problem that we face is that the very individuals that have the ability to make the changes are the people that got us into this mess in the first place. A person or an entity needs power in order to make a change, but there is no reason for these people to want to change since they are the greatest beneficiaries of the status quo. It makes no difference if we talk about government, business and even the church, people are benefiting from the mess that we are in and the leaders of these groups are not willing to offer anything that will reduce their power or benefits.
Absolutely nothing is happening in our government with the exception of everyone trying to raise money for the next election. We all are aware of the fact that we are essentially bankrupt and yet we continue funding programs that produce nothing to help our situation. NASA is sending up the last rocket soon and then it is over. Why are we spending millions of dollars on something that we know is over in a month or two ? Of course, we know it is all about money, yet our representatives are spending millions taking trips all over the world instead of dealing with the problems that face us here.
The price of gasoline is totally unbelievable and there in absolutely no explanation for the daily rises in price, and no one is doing anything about it. Our leaders are not even asking questions because the oil companies will be donating huge sums of money to their campaigns. And, we can go on about all sorts of issues that are destroying our way of life, but the average citizen can do nothing about it. Groups are forming to attempt to make reasonable changes, but even they are dismissed as radicals. So, what does this mean ? It means that no one has the power to stop the destruction of our civilization and that is probably true. Except for one thing !!! We have God on our side….
Now, we know that God allows certain things to happen in order to get our thinking straight and come to Him for His help. This certainly sounds like one of those times. The unfortunate aspect of this is that even the Church is so divided that it has no power. We must unify into a Church based only on the doctrine as given to us from within the Bible and then and only then, we would have the power to do what we are supposed to do and that is to help others. If we do not do this then it is better to be old now, because our younger generation is going to live in an entirely different world than what exists today.
You are absolutely right on with what you are saying. I observe alot of the same as I am sure many other people do. I am comforted by the fact that we do have God on our side and that He will always be there for us in times of need. I just concentrate on strengthening my personal relationship with Him and telling others He is there with open arms waiting for you to join His family. He is watching out for us. Give no thought for the morrow, be comforted that all is in the Lord's hands while some fall by the wayside and the wheat continues to be separated from the chaffe. Our hope and salvation is Jesus. The next world will be much better and you never know when it will come.
