It has been quoted in the past that “man is the noblest of all animals, but when separated from law, justice and divine principles governing the conscience, he is embolden in the worse he can be, Ecclesiastes 8:11.
The rapid advance of evil unfolding in our nation’s history and the world, should provide us with ample evidence that dark forces are at work, sin in the heart. We must realize that God will not be silent when confronting sin whether individually or collectively, as a nation or the world. His judgement hand is revealed bringing consequences, a result of our ungodly sinful thought patterns and behaviors. Romans chapter 1, verse 18 declares that the righteous God and Creator, intervenes in the aﬀairs of men when they become an aﬀront to Him in rejecting and opposing His immutable truths. “For God does not overlook sin, His wrath is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth.” You would think that the direction our nation has undertaken would force us to pause and reconsider, but it appears to have the opposite eﬀect of “embolden and empowering us in our rebellion,” as if God doesn’t exist.
Collectively our hearts declare … “With our tongue we will prevail; Our lips are our own; who is lord and master over us?” Psalm 12:4; Those given authority by God to govern the people, have usurped His sovereign will deciding to lead us away from His divine laws and commandments. Thus they have redefined the moral framework, perverted justice, and in doing created an atmosphere of no “reverential fear of God residing in the heart of the people. Romans 3:10-18;
“There is none righteous, none that meets God’s standard.
“There is none who understands, there is none who seeks for God.
“Together they have become useless.” They habitually deceive with their tongues.” “Their mouth is full of cursing and hatred.”
“They shed blood, destruction and misery, they have not known the path of peace.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
In eﬀect, we are transitioning from a nation that in the past believed and depended on the God of scripture. The foundations of our government institutions and educational systems were built on His principles, declaring boldly “In God We Trust[ed].” Nowadays however, our technological advancements and unchecked pride proclaims us “the gods,” in the age of Homo Deus. Let us be reminded of the King of Tyre, in Ezekiel 28, verse 2, God says to those who mock Him and pervert the knowledge of good and evil, I will prevail. … “Son of man, tell the ruler of Tyre that this is what the Lord GOD says: Your heart is proud, and you have said, ‘I am a god; I sit in the seat of gods in the heart of the sea.’ Yet you are a man and not a god, though you have regarded your heart as that of a god.”
