There is little doubt the world is turning from God, what little faith they had has waned. The antichrist has done his job well; he has led willing people away from the love of Christ.
Mathew 24:37-39 When the Son of man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered the boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them away. That is the way it will be when the Son of man comes.
In the world people are concerned with only what they can have pleasure with. God brought the flood in Noah’s day; it was God’s judgement on sin. We have reached critical mass; the world does not want God to call them to accountability. Before the flood, in Noah’s day God said:
Every imagination of the thoughts of man’s heart was only evil every day.
This is where our world is today, it has no moral compass whatsoever. Government passes laws where men can marry men and women can marry women. When a Christian calls them out, they are branded as haters. Has God changed? Does He honor the laws of governments? Will He exempt people from judgement because they are protected by man’s laws? The focus of Noah’s flood is not the destruction of all those people, but rather Noah and his family lived above God’s judgement.
Noah was a preacher of righteousness, but the world refused to hear him. They were scoffers. They had no faith in Noah’s God. They spurned Noah and made fun of him, they went about their business of sinning. There were eight righteous people in the Ark. They began to have children and once again the world had a population, but the devil began to turn them away from God and once again sin reigned. God rained brimstone and fire upon Sodom and Gomorrah and this has not bothered homosexuals one little bit.
2 Timothy 3:1-2 There will be difficult times in the last days. People will be selfish, greedy, boastful, and conceited; they will be insulting, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful and irreligious; they will be unkind, merciless, slanderers, violent and fierce, they will hate the good, they will love pleasure rather than God.
We are living and witnessing the fruition of this prophecy. Many have no natural affection and because they don’t, millions of unborn babies have been torn from their wombs. I think the world’s favorite phrase is this: Don’t judge me! They do not want to be accountable and they don’t want to hear what God says about their choices.
January 12, 2020
I can now sow my seed in faith, because I overcame the Spirit of fear.
God isn't trying to humble me, He is trying to bless me.
I need to cooperate with Him, and let Him pour me out the blessing.
The more I trust Him, the more I will give.
Our focus the rest of January will be to continue to pray for our Church Body. Taking the Word the Holy Spirit has spoken during our corporate prayer week, meditating on His direction and guidance and being obedient to His Will.
Prayer slips will be available for anyone who would like to request personal prayer.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.
