I know this is a rhetorical question, but can somebody please answer that question?
Think about these points:
1) People are calling evil good, and good evil.
2) More people are turning away from God than ever. Lot's of angry atheists out there...
3) Humanism is on the rise.
4) History has been re-written to exclude any references to God-even if it happened!
5) Occultism is on the rise. Just watch TV, or go to the movies (Twilight). This is accepted as the norm.
6) Terrorism is on the rise.
7) Wars and rumors of wars are on the rise.
8) We are being taxed to death by our own government. Aren't they supposed to protect us against this?
9) Our leaders only want to push their own agenda forward-no matter what the cost to us.
10) Drug use is on the rise.
11) Drinking is on the rise.
12) Pornography is more prevalent than ever. Just watch a sports event and stay for the commercials!
13) Gas & heating oil is on the rise.
14) Food prices are on the rise.
15) Suicide and depression are on the rise. Just watch TV commercials between Christmas & New Years...
I am writing this post, because something earlier today set me off. I saw a news update about some New York City agency that printer a "Guide to Heroin Use". The title of the article was: "New York City-Funded Guide Teaches How to Shoot Heroin Safely". I am not going to include the link-just Google it if you want to read it. Is anyone else out there absolutely STUNNED that this happened?
OK-Now that I depressed everyone, think about this-We have a PROMISE! A promise of an afterlife, a new life!
Well-thank God that Jesus is in control! Let me share something with all you brothers & sisters out there-We're all just sojourners. We're just passing through. Jesus has already prepared a place for us (John 14:1-4). It's ready for that moment when Jesus calls us home. We will close our eyes on this earth, and open them in the presence of our Lord & Savior. He has a mansion ready for us! He has an "all you can eat" buffet ready for us, and He will be dining with us! We will be praising and worshipping Jesus for all eternity!
Is anyone else excited? I know I am!! Praise His Holy Name! Hallelujah!
So-while you are out there in the world seeing all of these things going on-remember the precious promised of The Lord!
SOMEBODY PLEASE GIVE ME AN AMEN!!!
