The Lord is tremendously holy and some of this generation gratefulness is not directed to Jesus or God. Observing the U.S. media’s portrayal of the 2010 elections one would think our country is standing on the edge of the “WASTE-LAND.” Living like harden hearted people, only interested in budget deficit and things contrary to a lifestyle known to be correct. How can this country be so christen based and wicked at the same time? I understand 138 people are classified as Tea Party candidates. But, what does that mean? If you listen to their rhetoric, seems they want to promote change, just like other politicians. In the case of the republicans, the people awarded them a chance to act righteous but we received two wars, increased gas prices, and no reduction of government spending. They never achieved Middle East peace or reduce nuclear weapons, during the republican eight years of control.
The fact is the current administration, prevented our corrupt banking system, car industry from disaster, and tried to correct issues of greed and over leveraging practices leading to the housing disaster. Now that the financial crisis is over and aspects of our economy and other countries have stabilized. The current administration reduced and soon to remove our brave-ones from Iraq and Afghanistan. They talked about health care and did something about it. When control of government was in the hands of the republicans what if anything have they to show, regarding Health Reform. The time has yet to come for republicans or any other offshoot to take up again the failed mindset of the past.
With that said, the current state of this county brings to mind a story of a farmer who cleared land to plant a vineyard, hoping to harvest a crop of sweet grapes. The farmer did all he could do, built a fence and watchtower to keep predators out of the crop, and a vine press was created as well. But come harvest time, the crops of grape were sour and the farmer was displeased. So, he considers abandoning his efforts and letting the vineyard to be overrun with weeds.
The meaning of this story, the people of this land has brought cause of the Lord to take hold of it and shake thee into repentance. The farmer is the Almighty Lord, the vineyard is a perfect setting, the land, the rain, and the wisdom to do what is right in the sight of God and His Holy Son Jesus Christ. They have provided all we needed. Thus look to the pass, this country blessing have been rich in deed. Now the winds of misery have befallen it. Allowing weeds of discord and hearten and contempt to take hold of the people and the land. What will you do? The time is right to repent for your wicked way of corruption, as the foreclosure mess by the Banks and the portrayal of idols and unsavory lifestyle. You like to think of yourselves as the greatest nation on the planet, well lead them, stop letting the war complex direct your steps. Stop polluting the land. Turn away from bowing down to money and bow down to God. Just because the democrats are in control, but really big business is the culprit. Continue to call them out every chance an opportunity presents itself.
Look to the Lord to walk in faith and become holy in His sight. Today, 33 miners understand the holiness of our Lord. They will preach how great the Lord is throughout the world. However, the world’s ear and eye seeks only the things that please the flesh.
