“And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” 1 John 5:19
IT HAPPENED INCREMENTALLY …or it could not have happened at all– that social swing, that reconditioning of the collective mind, that losing of society’s moral conscience. Oh, yes, it happened incrementally–a slight chipping away, a little tap, tap, tapping on long-standing societal proprieties and sensitivities. The media stealthily did its work. Do you remember the old black and white televisions that invaded our homes? Quite the invention, right? I say, quite the venue. Whatever the chosen channel, Hollywood crept in with its immoral agenda. We watched, and we listened, and we started to conform. The billboards, the books, the movies, the music–they all worked as one insidious beast to break down any bastions of godliness in the people.
We hardly knew what was upon us. Whirlwind-like influences shook until things were turned so up-side-down that people do not know what right-side-up is anymore.
With multitudes donning green, red, or purple hair, tattoos, very revealing clothing–the streets of our towns and cities look incredibly different now! Politicians march front and centre in LGBTQ Pride parades. (Forty years ago, one might guess LGBTQ to stand for Little Girls’ Basketball Team Quest.) The madness is further advanced by governments in some places that will now take children away from parents who seek to dissuade their child from any homosexual/transgender leanings. Christian parents are especially suspect.
Consider, if you will, this spiritual law: When a person sins, that sin will make room for another…and another, and so on it goes. The sins committed in the 1960s were the seed for a harvest in the ensuing decades. Oh, the proliferation of evil! Out of it vomits the Jeffrey Epsteins of the land. Yet, Mr. Epstein’s pedophilia and sexual trafficking is but a small indicator of the cesspool of corruptions behind the closed doors of the rich and powerful elite.
Indeed, the whole world lieth in wickedness! As one fully reclined in a chair, the multitudes have given themselves over to all manner of sin. They lay back, seemingly content to have lost their footing, though they have landed in the mire. Enslaved to their lusts and emboldened by their numbers, the unregenerate mass even calls for the sacrifice of Innocence, saying, “Give us the children!” Educators, psychologists, librarians, judges, entertainers, and governments heed the call. With a murderous drive, they work furiously, changing school curriculums, changing laws, changing minds. Unsuspecting and defenseless children are groomed for the sacrifice. The number of victims to Molech’s altar pale by comparison.
Some even insist on the fruit of their own womb joining them in their miry repose, as though it were a new kind of love. Other parents, not having joined the maddened crowd and longing to protect the innocence and dignity of their children, fight to protect them from the darkened regions of sin and hurtful lusts. “To the courts, with you!” the voice from the corrupted mass cries. The courts, predictably compliant, pass the sentence–the parent is guilty of abuse against his child by resisting their participation in the popular agenda of Satan.
This is 2019 and the whole world is lying in wickedness! The cup of God’s wrath is soon to spill over. Jesus Christ is returning in flaming fire to take vengeance on them that obey not His gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8). And we, who know that we are of God (1 John 5:19), sound forth this urgent warning to this sin-laden generation: “Awake to righteousness, and sin not”! “Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.” Ezekiel 18:30b.
O that the multitudes would awaken from their sinful sleep! This vain life will soon be over, and all will be leaving this world to meet their Creator and Judge. It is time to arise, and prepare to meet God! “O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord”! Jeremiah 22:29.
