Do you ever wonder what is happening in our culture and in our world right now? It seems as if you cannot make sense of it all. People are calling right wrong and wrong right and if you disagree, you are bullied into accepting the deceptive belief system that is plaguing our world. Jesus said over and over, “See to it that you are not deceived.” So why are we so surprised when we look around and see so many that are steeped in lies and deception and don’t even realize it?
Why don’t they realize it? Because they are deceived! They promote evil and call it good. They speak lies and call it truth. We must take a stand against the forces of darkness. We, the church of Christ need to awaken and realize that we have been passive too long. If we do not stand up for goodness, holiness, and righteousness, who will? It is killing us, our freedom and our future! It is an attack on everything pure and wholesome. It is an attack from Satan to steal family, deceive people and slowly desensitize us and our children against disgusting and pure evil. This is an all out war in the spiritual rhelm! We must see it as that and pray against the evil forces of darkness that are controlling people and what they perceive as good.
Everyone is born with an innate desire to know their creator, but as evil grows in a man’s heart, that desire is overshadowed and their heart is darkened. When we glorify anything over our creator and refuse the truth of who He is, we are deceived!
We are living this prophecy now… WAKE UP CHURCH! Don’t be passive about what is happening! Get on your knees and pray! Speak up and speak out. Do not accept this as our “new normal” There is nothing “normal” about it. It’s not right and it’s NOT OK!
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.Roman’s 1:18-32
