And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies; but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and for they know not me, saith the Lord. Take ye heed every one of his neighbor, for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will walk with slander.
If the question was raised, Why discuss the evilness and devastation that is facing our nation? Let's reflect on the prophet Jeremiah and his weeping for the nation of Israel and the sins he witnessed. The more Jeremiah cried out to the people for them to repent the more the people rebelled against God.
That being said, today we are witnessing all manner of sin and evil and it appears that the greater the sin the more people strives to wallow in sin. The louder God's spokespersons cry out for repentance the deeper this country sinks into to spiritual apostasy. These questions come to mind, How did this happen when this nation was founded upon godly principles? Has this country forgotten its first love-God the Father, Jesus Christ our Savior and the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us? Does this current generation believe there is a God the one who created the heavens and earth? There is a God and He is real and alive. Does modern day man believe God will punish sin? Yes He will and does punish sin just at He did to the nation of Israel during the Bible days. He surely will punish this nation. His anger is being witnessed through the many natural disasters that are being heaped upon this country. Many will say it is because of climate change; let's be clear nothing is out of God's control and His permissive will. God's perfect will is that for all men to be saved and be in fellowship with Him, but if rebellion continues He will turn you over to a reprobate mind. Romans 1:24-32 describes God's response to the degeneration of man in his evil ways.
God's word is going to stand forever, believe it or not. Just as He punished sin in the past His judgment is forth coming. Repent and be saved or reject God and His Word and perish.
