So how will the evils of today be stopped? This is the question many are pondering. It seems that evil is rampant and ever growing, and no one is putting out much effort to stop it—not even our highest elected officials or our judges. Our police forces are being defunded and stifled, and as a result the crime rate is sky-rocketing—thefts, murder, rape and more. We have allowed mail-in-voting, and as a result we have voter fraud that has jeopardized the results of our elections. A tragedy! We have a media that is covering up crime and corruption so that many are not even aware of what is going on. We have an entertainment industry that makes a profit on feeding the flames of lust and greed and murder.
We indeed are living in the last days and Paul’s list of evils (2 Tim. 3:2-4) definitely can be seen today. Here are the ones I see most clearly: Men are “lovers of self, lovers of money… ungrateful, unholy…without self-control…lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.”
Later in verse 13, Paul says, “But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse.” We definitely see this happening. Evil, if left unchecked will multiply. If there is one bad apple in the barrel that is not removed, soon the entire barrel will be rotten.
Let me say as strongly as I can: unless we deal with those that have corrupted out elections, unless we find and prosecute them, many more will be encouraged to do the same thing and our election system will never be the same.
Similarity, unless we restore and correctly fund our police department, and thus crack down on crime, we will continue to see wide-spread crime all over our country.
Unless we are able to vote out (by fair voting) the corrupt and evil people in our government, we will continue to see corrupt and self-seeking power grabbers in our leadership, which in turn will leave out society defenseless against crime and evil.
I want to say as strongly as I can that God sees what is happening and He cannot be mocked.
He will judge evil. No one will get away with anything. Soon, very soon all true Christians will be taken from this world and the rest will be left to be judged by God. You who have rejected Him will experience His wrath for 7-years or until you die. Then you will be resurrected and judged by God to be cast into the lake of fire forever.
Here are three Scripture passages that describe the soon-coming 7-year Tribulation, which is also called “The Day of the LORD.” I will highlight the words I want to emphasize.
[In that Day] The earth will be completely laid waste and completely despoiled, for the Lord has spoken this word. 4 The earth mourns and withers, the world fades and withers, the exalted of the people of the earth fade away. 5 The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left. NASB
Near is the great day of the Lord,
Near and coming very quickly;
Listen, the day of the Lord!
In it the warrior cries out bitterly.
15 A day of wrath is that day,
A day of trouble and distress,
A day of destruction and desolation,
A day of darkness and gloom,
A day of clouds and thick darkness,
16 A day of trumpet and battle cry,
Against the fortified cities
And the high corner towers.
17 And I will bring distress on men,
So that they will walk like the blind,
Because they have sinned against the Lord;
And their blood will be poured out like dust,
And their flesh like dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold
Will be able to deliver them
On the day of the Lord’s wrath;
And all the earth will be devoured
In the fire of His jealousy,
For He will make a complete end,
Indeed a terrifying one,
Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
And I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 And the sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their wrath has come; and who is able to stand?” NASB
This is your doom! This will be God’s wrath upon you unless you change your ways, unless you give up your sin and turn to Him. Yes, God will eventually be the one to stop all the evils of today—His way! If you don’t want to experience His wrath you must repent now before it is too late.
