Why Hardship, Why Punishment

Jeremiah 4:18 Your ways and your doings have made these things come on you; this is your sin; truly it is bitter, going deep into your heart.

People get the leaders they deserve. Today, everywhere we look all that can be seen is wickedness, oppression and greed for gain. Where is the love? Where is the peace? People are losing their homes, their jobs, they cannot feed their families, and why not? Here's why:

Your ways and your doings have made these things come on you; this is your sin; truly it is bitter, going deep into your heart.

Do bad things happen to good people? Yes, however, the difference between the evildoer and those who are in Christ is this: the Lord ALWAYS takes care of his own, somehow, someway.

Psalm 37:25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

I have been young, and now I'm almost middle aged, and I have never seen the righteous forsaken. The Lord takes care of his own. What does the future hold? I don't know, I've been asking the Lord about it. We know where all this is headed, but in the short term, will we see a return to more normal days or do we slip further into the dark satanic system setting itself up all around us. My impression is this: this world will continue its descent into darkness, with small plateaus along the way. What characterizes this world today? I think this nails it:

men are lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

If this world and its filthiness does not vex you, theres something wrong with you. If you feel like everythings ok, theres something wrong with you. What do I mean when I say somethings wrong with you? The Creator of all things is NOT PLEASED with this world or the men in it. If you are pleased, and He is not, somethings wrong with YOU. If you do not hunger and thirst for our fathers kingdom to come, somethings wrong with you. We do not belong to this world, we are not of this world. This world is a sickening mess, thats what men have made of it. Your so called 'pastors' tell you that everythings ok, when EVERYTHING IS NOT OKAY. No, something is VERY VERY WRONG. Wickedness everywhere, no righteousness, no justice, just every man for himself. If you want to know why all the leaders of this world are wicked and corrupt, its because thats what THE PEOPLE DESERVE. Yep, you heard me right, thats what they deserve. Churches and so called christians blanket every corner of America and yet we are one of the most wicked nations on earth. We're not wicked you say? LOOK AROUND YOU. Turn on the TV and behold the filth and dissipation that people CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF. Markets are efficient in some ways, if nobodys buying something, people stop selling it. Its obvious then, that people cannot get enough of back stabbing, sex, lies and deceit. Thats what sells these days, which means theres a HUGE market for it.

The chickens are coming home to roost. So called christianity, and its hired hand nicolaitan pastors are going to reap the whirlwind for their IDOLATRY, wickedness, lust, greed and deception. The world considers christianity a joke, and rightly so, but they dont go far enough. The leaders of so called christianity have attempted to usurp the place of the head of the body, that place is reserved for CHRIST ALONE, thats called idolatry. Turn away from the babylonian harlot. Theres a storm coming and most people dont see it. Time is short, grace and peace
