I will give a very unpopular response.
God runs the world on a set timetable.
He appoints leaders and leads them to do His bidding.
The end of the age is almost here. People feel it regardless if they are of faith.
The entire Old Testament chronicles His children being faithful and unfaithful to Him.
They were blessed when they were faithful and severely punished and chastised when they disobeyed Him.
Punishments were often in the form of invasion by enemies, and many lives were lost.
This, however, does not make an unjust Father. Similar to a human father who must raise a child except for the death part!
Now, the entire Word of God is a lesson of both encouragement and awe to His Children.
Who are they? Those who love and believe in His Son Jesus Christ, basically most of the western nations.
Which countries are being rotted from the inside? The same ones.
Which ones are being made bankrupt? The same ones.
Which ones are building mega churches yet the decline in morals is continuing? The same ones.
Which generation of children are growing up hearing that their Holy Book is a fable? The same ones.
Which generation of children are abandoning the God of their fathers in favour of aliens, Egypt mysteries, Sumerian tales etc? The same ones.
My point is this: can you not see that the western nations are being systematically led down a similar path?
And that the good old USA is at the forefront in seeming contradictions? We're the most generous at helping those in need yet we are the ones
producing this crap that that is morally bankrupting our own people?
All of the most sophisticated weapons on the planet will not protect us if it is God's will that in addition to using the wicked to take out the
wicked, He deems it necessary to start with HIS OWN HOUSE FIRST?
Prophets were sent time and time again to tell His People to repent and to come back to Him. Did they? For the most part-NO. They died or were exciled
Does that sound a harsh punishment to you? Well it shouldn't as it is a message about eternal life not this physical life here on a blue planet
called Earth. It is the lesson that our disobedience to God has an even worse fate than a physical death, and that is that in the spiritual realm, it
is an eternal death.
I write this today as there are many of you expressing such confidence in our military ability. I'm a proud ex-Navy wife. But I'm here to remind
that little piece of your heart that still remembers God that we are nothing without His blessing. And just as in the Old Testament, Revelation
chronicles the decline in true faith leading to the spiritual, if not physical, death of many. If I could ask all to stop and think for a few minutes
about where this world is creeping and why, perhaps one or two might take to heart the following:
"For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all
things were created by him and for him."
"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Our God is true and faithful to His Word. But we have grown up in the hardest generations. We watch as the zeal of Islam continues to spread and grow
more bold around the planet whilst many people in the western nations grow cold or wilfully believe that our own One True Almighty God doesn't exist.
Do not get be the one who sells their birthright for a lie.
