The world is changing so fast we cannot keep up with all the crazy desires of an ungodly world. Christians are forsaking their faith to appease and embrace the desires of ungodly people. They have this notion that if they accept the evil desires of the world they can demonstrate the love of God. Men, void of any respect for God have redefined morality, they call it the new “norm”. In the name of freedom men have declared same sex marriage the law of the land. I believe the moral decline of the world will work to hasten the return of our Lord Jesus.
Hebrews 10:25 Let us not neglect our meeting together as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near.
God has a history of dealing with sin before it can overtake the whole world. In the day of Noah He brought a flood. In the day of Abraham He rained fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah. In every case He delivered the righteous first and then He dealt with the sinner. The world is blinded to the impending event they are soon to be a part of.
For there shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world this time, no, nor ever shall be.
The Lord tells us that some folks would see the day coming, they would warn the world, but no one would hear. We must find those who love the Lord and are willing to suffer shame rather than compromise His Holy writ. Though we be few in number we shall be great in our love for Christ and His ways.
Isaiah 1:9 Except the Lord of hosts had left us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom and like Gomorrah.
God established the nation of Israel and made a covenant with them. As long as they worshiped Him as their God, He would bless them with prosperity and divine protection. But when they became content they turned away from Him and no longer gave Him a place of honor in their hearts. So God let the world deal with His people, they struggled to feed themselves and their enemies overwhelmed them. The United States is making the same mistake. They no longer need God. They have all they want. Today, God is working with a remnant of the people He is Lord over. God is being honored by what is left of the greatest nation on earth.
Romans 9:27 Esaias cried concerning Israel through the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved.
What happened to Israel? How could a people chosen by God Himself self destruct? The same way the world is imploding right before our eyes. Men everywhere are turning away from God and his laws in order to fulfill their lusts. Some will speak of God as honorable, but their hearts are far from Him. A true believer will never accept a same sex marriage, nor will they approve of abortion. The world is so determined to fulfill the lusts of their flesh. They will discredit and kill anyone who opposes them. The signs of the times are apparent, look up for your redemption draweth nigh.

When the Word of the Lord came to me, I began to be built up.
God's will is deposited in my spirit, and my soul is in agreement.
The Word decides my thoughts, I ignore how I feel about them.
I prosper before I actually prosper, the Word is working mightily in me.
I will reap what I sow, and I will have what I say.
