Our economy is not in a good place, it is too top-heavy. Too much debt and not enough assets and receipts coming in. No production from the private sector because of regulations and other problems. War on more fronts than we need to be in and too much money being printed to cover our obligations.
Problems in education, in the media, people against belief in God, abortion, murder, rape, etc. the list goes on and on. These are all problems which are happening because of our own reasoning and the way that we have pushed God and His principles away from school and away from public life.
Can we possibly fix this? Not on our own, with our own individual beliefs and with truth being dependent on whose belief system there is. If we are not going to learn the absolute Truth of God and His Word and put it into practice in our lives and in our governments, state, local and national, then our country is doomed. I am not talking about doomed by nuclear attack or war but from cultural decline and decay. Eventually, we will be anarchists and each person, each city will be a law unto itself, like in the west of pre-civil war days.
And this doesn’t even take into account if the economy fails. When that happens, all of the doom and gloom that has been predicted will happen. I don’t know what will happen in our country at that point, but the civil war will likely look like a picnic in comparison. There will be gangs searching for gas, and food and anything else they can steal to sell or barter with because money will be useless.
I know that this is a very gloomy, but it is what will happen if things go the way that the economists have predicted. This is not just my own fear, but it has been written down by people who have followed and watched the government and the way things are going. They have even called it economic Armageddon because of the effect it will have, not only on America but on the world in general.
I know that God is present in our lives, He is watching over us and our country but we have been doing things in this country that He doesn’t approve of. Whether He is part of your life or not, He is present in this time, He knows what we are doing and what we are not doing. He also knows whether we are trusting Him and His Son, or not. Many people today are turning their lives and their backs on anything to do with God and religion both. Why?
Doing things on your own seems to be fun at the time because we are the only ones that we are responsible to. If anything goes wrong, it is our fault and we can’t blame anyone else. Living this way may be fun for a while, if you are careful and don’t get into anything that is too dangerous, but what will you do if something goes wrong that is out of your control? What can you do if you get a diagnosis of cancer, stage four? Your control has been taken from you at that point.
The only person that you can call on at this point is Jesus. The doctor may be able to help a little, but Jesus can do more. Not only can He cure your cancer, but He can provide you with an eternity of life with many friends! I can hear many people saying that they don’t want to be in heaven, they don’t want to be Christians!
That is fine if that is what you want, but I won’t ever see you. There is a separation between the two eternities and hell is not visible from heaven, like it was in the story of Lazarus. That parable was used to show that people have the information that they need to be saved and that they would not believe any more if someone came back from the dead.
The only way that our world and our lives are going to be “fixed” is through the restoration that Jesus will bring to the world and to your life. He will make things right in your life when you accept Him into your heart and into your life. There is nothing that you have to do yourself because Jesus has already done what was required, all you have to do is ask Him into your heart and then walk with Him from that point on. Give it a try, you will be glad that you did!
