From my Bible reading today: Proverbs 30: 21-23

Posted: September 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

Wow! As I am reading the scripture above God instantly impressed upon me the state of our society…even among the brethren (and sisteren). “We the people” as well as we the people in the church far too often make excuses for and even laud the leaders in our society when they lie, are lewd, promote wanton sexual acts, degrade women (and men), and act like whores, drunkards, and everything else but a child of God.

Proverbs 30:21-23The Message (MSG) Four Intolerables

21-23 Three things are too much for even the earth to bear, yes, four things shake its foundations—

when the janitor becomes the boss,

when a fool gets rich,

when a whore is voted “woman of the year,”

when a “girlfriend” replaces a faithful wife.

Yet, here in these verses in the Bible that many of us claim to be our sources for wisdom, correction, and reproof the Holy Spirit shows us in these simple scriptures the state of our society yet many of us turn a blind eye to or even continually without repentance participate in the evil that our society presents as an alternative to our loving and gracious Father God through His most awesome Son Jesus Christ.

I’ve heard people on both sides of the aisles of the political spectrum and especially within the church make excuses for leaders that they side with politically when MOST if not all of them lie to get votes or hold onto power (this is true because the church is NOT the black church or the white church, the Baptist, Protestant, Catholic, Hispanic, Orthodox, or whatever church IT IS THE CHURCH!!!!)

We, even in the church choose one sin to be higher or lower than the other..I’ve seen this with adultery as we often give a pass to adulters, fornicators, liars, and thieves as we revile the pregnant teen, homosexuals, drunkards, etc., when we should always correct when necessary yet do so in the same manner with grace and love as Christ Jesus so willingly did for us reserving judgement for Him and Him alone (we are called to judge sin for what it is but judgement belongs to God).

I’ve seen people glorify people (stars) who profess a relationship with Christ yet produce some of the most vile music and videos all for a buck as they saturate ours and our children’s heart’s, mind’s, and soul’s with the enemies lies through these media yet those of us within the Church who fight against these things are called names lower than snail dung yet we somehow expect our society to get “better” because we elect a certain leader or pass certain legislation, or promote one group over another.

No my friends and as God has surely shown me….none of this will ever work and it is only Jesus that will save America and the rest of the world. Only by following and doing what He says through revelation in His word and via His Holy Spirit through constant relationship through, prayer, praise, and worship will “we the people” and we the people in the church here in this country and around the world ever see the ills that beset us as mankind solved.

With Jesus we can make the best of this fallen creation yet so many of us especially within the church refuse His word and even make up new ones attributed to Him that He has never said nor would ever say.

Rest assured that He is watching and it is only through repentance and a renewing of our minds in Christ Jesus that we will ever achieve the victory and that my friends is what it’s all about.
