Where are the God-fearing people of our day?
Problem is the majority of humanity don’t fear God and it shows in their actions and attitudes. Mouthing off on camera about everything they “deserve” and everything they are “entitled” to because they belong to a certain group. Sorry to burst your bubble but we all belong to one group/one blood, the human race, and news alert the only thing we deserve is death, hell and condemnation. None of us are good, no not one. None of us are victims, we are all the problem.
Why, because we don’t fear God. It is evident in society and in our churches everywhere and it played out in our streets last night.
Murder is a SIN.
Racism is a SIN.
Looting/rioting is a SIN
All SIN is lawlessness
We must remember that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”, this wisdom that is incomprehensible and not accessible to the man separated from God.
The murder, the racist, the rioter, they don’t fear God because they look to themselves for self-sufficiency, self-government, and self-rule all bound within his self-absorbed “wisdom”
God has rooted ethics/man’s conduct into His relationship with man. When that relationship is severed or compromised it is only a matter of time before any shred of ethical and moral integrity will die.
And died it has.
I mourn, grieve and am angered by what happened to George Floyd and I will call out with my last breath that the hammer of justice needs to be swung swiftly and with great power to send a message that this is not acceptable.
It is said that this problem has been going on too long and I do understand that, so why do we use the same methods and strategies we have always used to get these same results. Why is it not working?
Because people are attempting to attack an ethical and moral problems without facing the principle that the fear of God is the only soil out of which godly living and stable ethics can grow.
Romans 3:17-18 “and the way of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God in their eyes.”
Calling all God-Fearing men of EVERY nation, color and creed to rise up, have courage and stand in the gap.
Be angry, and do not sin.
We need God-Fearing men to stand before these opposing masses with an open Bible and the uncompromising message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Standing in the gap with nothing to help us or defend us except the gospel and the God who has promised to work through it.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and this godly wisdom is explained in James 3:17, “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.”
Pure, peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, IMPARTIAL and sincere. Now that is a wisdom I know can start to fix our issues.
