They Forgot About God
“I will praise You, O Jehovah, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. When my enemies have turned back, they shall fall and perish at Your presence. For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging in righteousness. You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked, You have blotted out their name forever and ever. The desolations of the enemy have come to an end forever, and You have destroyed the cities; the remembrance of them has perished with them. But Jehovah shall endure forever; He has prepared His throne for justice. And He shall judge the world in righteousness; He shall execute judgment to the people with equity. Jehovah also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of distress. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Jehovah, have not forsaken those who seek You. Sing praises to Jehovah, who dwells in Zion; declare His deeds among the nations. When He investigates bloodshed, He forgets not the cry of the lowly. Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah; look upon my affliction from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death, so that I may declare all Your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will rejoice in Your salvation. The nations have sunk down in the pit that they made; their own foot is caught in the net which they hid. Jehovah is known. He has executed judgment; the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. The wicked shall be turned away into Sheol, all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten; the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever. Arise, O Jehovah; let not man prevail. Let the nations be judged before Your face. Put them in fear, O Jehovah; let the nations know that they are but men. Selah.” Psalms 9:1-20
If you are paying attention to the news nowadays, there seems to be an engulf of tragedies, violence, movements, oppression and troubles worldwide. As a friend mentioned recently, such things as the gay movement is not isolated to the United States.
“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12
Troubles increase upon troubles and we are all awakened to the news of yet another shooting, rioting and violence in Venezuela, problems with worldwide financial markets, disputes over who controls the South China sea, aggressions between Russia and the United States, as well as America’s upcoming election. To top it off, supposedly Osama Bin Laden’s son has issued a warning to Americans that he is going to take revenge with a “we are all Osama” threat.
Behind a lot of these issues there are political ideologies and motives. The shooting in Orlando was from an Islamist extremist who was bent on using violence to make a statement. The Dallas shooting was motivated by the Black Lives Matter movement and he was also bent on using violence to make a statement. Then the “we are all Osama” issued by Bin Laden’s son is yet another statement that could induce many followers, just as ISIS has.
The world is a very troubling place and in these last days events are becoming more and more disturbing. While there has always been violence, a lot of what is being done now is based upon individuals who follow very loose connections to ideologies. Most of these people who are involved in circles listed above are Generation Y and Z, also known as the Millenials (1975-1995) and iGeneration (1995-2015).
By time 1981 came and went, the Millenials had begun being born and the Churches in America were beginning to cease. Generation X (1961-1981) and the Baby Boomer Generation (1945-1964) had rode the wave of rebellion and pushed the hippy movement throughout the United States (and world) causing new flows of ideas that wrecked havoc on many true Churches throughout the country, as pastors who stood firm to the Word of God were politicked out of their own congregations for refusing to bend to the people. Instead they placed teachers who went along with the masses, changing the Truth of God, into watered down teachings and lies.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts, desiring to hear pleasant things, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to myths.” 2nd Timothy 4:3-4
In the meantime the Government took over education and science dropped bombshell after bombshell on darkening the Truth and purporting lies. Hollywood rolled out film after film that helped push our degradation of society into even lower levels of morality, the rock bands and hip hop/rap industry continued to play music that dishonored their Creator and promoted hysterical fans who came in droves to indulge in their fleshly lusts. Then came the internet…
“Professing to be wise, they become foolish, and change the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.” Romans 1:22-23
“Do not be led astray: Evil company corrupts good character.” 1st Corinthians 15:33
Suddenly the world had a link to each other, at first there was little information out on the internet. As the world wide web grew, so did it’s influence upon mankind. Suddenly information, both good and bad, became available at our fingertips with a simple search. As technology increased the ease of access became better and now people around the world have smart phones which allow for access to the net with minimal technical knowledge. In the meantime, most of the world forgot about God.
“But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, to the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4
If they had remembered God and His words to mankind, then they would have realized that much of what the world participates in is contrary to His Word. Yet those who warn are so far and few, the amount who listen to them are but a drop in the bucket of humanity. For many the internet opened up information that had been kept secret and hidden. We realized that there is a web of influence that motivates our leaders, education system and religions around the world. We realized that there is a vast conspiracy against We The People and also the world population as a whole. This caused ripples in the fabric of how society behaved, causing ideologies to turn into mass movements. Never before in the history of America would an unnecessary death cause something like Black Lives Matter to ignite and spread from corner to corner of the country. I use the LA riots as an example.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.” Ephesians 6:12
There the violence was for the most part kept in LA, others who might have agreed had no way, nor reason to protest, whether peacefully or otherwise, in their cities across the country. Now with a few tweets, posts and other links via social media, a mob frenzy can appear almost instantaneously in any large city in America. The problem is their direction is off, they are looking for immediate change when they should consider that black lives matter to a holy and righteous God. While only a small percentage of them will be killed unjustifiably by police, the vast majority will end up in Hell because they forgot about God.
“So then each of us shall give account concerning himself to God.” Romans 14:12
“And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. And books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, out of the things which were written in the books.” Revelation 20:12
“And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matthew 25:46
“Because narrow is the gate and distressing is the way which leads unto life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:14
“You shall not follow the majority in doing evil”… Exodus 23:2a
Then you have what is termed the ‘conspiracy theorist’. Much information has made itself available and there are many different writers, alternative news outlets and vendors who pump out information to the masses in endless droves. Yet while their information might often times be spot-on, they have forgotten about God also. Their solutions are to prep, prepare and to try to educate their fellow citizens, whilst saving the Republic, yet they miss the mark.
While there are many who name the name of Jesus or God on occasion, there are none that I know of that actually tell people the real solution, which is Salvation through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. So you have all of these people who are prepared for endless disasters and scenarios that can and will unfold, yet rarely are one of them prepared to meet their Maker. Their preparations fall short.
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unyielding, slanderers, without self-control, savage, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away.” 2nd Timothy 3:1-5
Nations are their people whom make them. We are the ones who elect our leaders, who push for legislation to be passed and who cause movements across the country to pursue ‘change’. Indeed America has forgotten about God, all nations have forgotten about God.
Legislation is passed around the world that defy the Almighty. Countries around the world allow and even participate in state-sanctioned martyrdom against Christians, the Bible and true Churches. Furthermore the people love to have it that way and continue to pursue evil, even imagining more and more devious plots.
“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their own power; and my people love to have it so, and what will you do in the end?” Jeremiah 5:31
“These six things Jehovah hates; yea, seven are an abomination to his soul: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises evil plans, feet hurrying to run to evil, a false witness who breathes lies, and he who spreads strife among brothers.” Proverbs 6:16-19
“Woe to those who devise wickedness and do evil on their beds! In the morning light they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. And they covet and seize fields and houses, and carry them away. And they oppress a man and his household, even a man and his inheritance.” Micah 2:1-2
I am part of a movement, that movement is being a true Christian. This movement was started by Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, and that movement means making available the Truth to those who will hear it. The hour is late, the days are numbered, but where are those with the real answers?
“Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.” 1st Corinthians 12:27
“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the full true knowledge of the Son of God, to a complete man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head, Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every individual does its part, causes growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.” Ephesians 4:11-16
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My Word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed from death unto life.” John 5:24
Understand that as the world seems to be falling apart around us, as another election comes upon this land, as the wealthy continually build bunkers, as the masses protest, prep or chose to ignore the facts, there is an answer.
Jesus Christ is the answer and the only real solution. You must repent and believe into Him, before it is too late. The world isn’t going to join in a mass movement to repent and come to Christ, but you must consider -your- ways and understand that in the end, all that will really matter is whether or not you chose to accept Christ as your Savior or refused and rebelled against God.
Heaven or Hell, the choice is really that simple. No matter what type of change is hoisted upon us, understand that God is the One who causes change in an individuals heart. Things are eventually going to get a lot worse in this country and the world. Eventually the nations will fight against God Almighty and be quickly brought to an end. Most of the world’s population will die during that time and those who become Saved will most likely give their lives for doing so. Calamity upon calamity will eventually hit the Earth, but the solution, even then, will remain the same…you need to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, before it is too late to do so.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear when the earth changes, when mountains are slipping into the midst of the seas. Let its waters roar and foam; let the mountains shake with the swelling of it. Selah. There is a river whose streams cause rejoicing in the city of God, the consecrated place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God shall help her at the break of day. The nations raged, the kingdoms were shaken; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. Jehovah of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of Jehovah, who has made desolations on the earth; who makes wars to cease to the ends of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariots in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God! I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Jehovah of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.” Psalms 46:1-11
Do not forget about God, because He will not forget about you! For in the end all will stand before the Most High individually and God will make Himself known to the nations. They will remember and you will know.
