The world has been evil since the first act of disobedience in the Garden of Eden. Every generation since has become imbedded with Satan and his minions and become more and more corrupt and degenerated. I don’t like being the gloom and doomer, professing the coming of the end of the world, but it sure looks like it’s upon us when you read the verses in 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
We are given key events leading to the end of days, but we are told that we won’t know the time the Lord will return. He’ll come as a thief in the night – in the moment we least expect him. It isn’t for us to know, it’s for us to be prepared.
With all the changes in our country’s moral fiber, governmental interference, media misinformation and just plain sin and lazy Christians, we are on the same road most civilizations experience before they go into decline. We need to wake up!
How do we fix it? We pray – we try to use the remaining time bringing the good news of Jesus to everyone – we become involved in the fight to bring back our nation to its origins. We can’t simply sit back and complain. We are to be in the world, but not of it.
We read that we should stay away from the ungodly, but they need to hear about God’s love too. We can’t avoid what’s happening. If we’re to be proud of our country again, we must stand up for its original precepts and design for its success.
Besides, it’s pretty hard to avoid a rainbow header on WordPress, It’s hard to see sin taking over as it has. We are not going to change the world we live in, but as a united group of Christians, we can still stand up for our country and fight to bring her back. In the end God will win. In the meantime, He has a lot of work for us to do.
