Psalm 78:32 In spite of all this, they kept on sinning;
in spite of his wonders, they did not believe.
33 So he ended their days in futility
and their years in terror.
This cautionary tale from the Psalms tells of the history of the Israelite people. The Psalmist is quite naturally taking God’s part and recounting the many blessings of God upon the Israelite people and the ungrateful and self-serving nature of their response to His grace and provision. It is fascinating to look at this and understand the history behind it all and to measure our current times against these principals of God’s love.
A time is set, and is surely coming when the scene above will be acted out in ways we cannot fathom from our perspective. Only those who have turned to God through the atoning sacrifice of our Lord Jesus the vey son of God will be spared.
New Testament apocalyptic theology is very clear on the subject. People will in the main get worse and worse. We cannot stop it. We can, however act as voices of reason in the midst of the insanity. Speaking the love of Jesus in His name and accepting people where they are and pointing to the better way of following Jesus and shedding all of the sinful trappings of this world.
With all the attention on the Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of the 1973 Roe V Wade decision it seems like the liberal press if such it should be called is at great pains to attempt to popularize and use any means necessary to promote the need for universal abortion access. Do not be misled. The whole concept of responsible citizenship is foreign to the fools who trumpet this kind of idiocy. Even Scripture is being twisted in their vain and foolish attempts to justify the murder of babies.
I recognize that there is no easy answer to the problems of living in a sex maddened society, but we must now be even more vigilant in prayer, more compassionate in our interactions with lost people especially expectant mothers, and available to come alongside the ones who most need help.
