I know that if you are over 50, you have thought many times — brother have things changed. We know that things have changed but we really don’t completely understand it. But there is a reason why what was right then is wrong today, and what was wrong then is right today. The moral compass has not only shifted in the schools, but in government, in most churches, and within the home. And the shift is not equal. In some cases it’s 45 degrees, and in some it’s 180. And there is confusion everywhere.
Today, I am taking out time to think about our nation’s students, who obviously have been guardedly protected from knowing anything about the truth and the meaning of the title of this message; but in addition to “the lack of knowledge” for most liberal students of liberal parents attending liberal universities, and liberal churches, there is behind it a total deception of instruction and thus a deprived learning, which brings these students and this society to the brink of incrimination on the part of God.
If they only knew that what they are doing unto others will come back upon them with a vengeance. If they knew that their own judgments would come roaring back at them.
The understanding of the judgement of God is the missing ingredient in our society. Why is that? At one time in our country the fear of God was able to guide the bulk of our population even when the understanding of God was lacking. Today, one would think that either God is dead, which these universities have taught now for decades; or that God is neutered of all power and ability to be able to carry out His own words. There is nothing left of Him but love, and then only for those who engage in their own brand of social justice. The sin if it exists at all that they see is only seen in others and only they can rectify these sins. They have become as gods with more ability and power to pass judgment and know how to rectify the ills of society than the God of the Bible, whom they don’t really despise, but whom they must, most assuredly, have reinvented.
They have forgotten Gods Judgment.
God has proclaimed in His word
Isaiah 13:5 They come from a distant land, from the horizon. It is the Lord with his instruments of judgment, coming to destroy the whole earth.
Isaiah 13:6 Wail, for the Lord’s day of judgment is near; it comes with all the destructive power of the sovereign judge. (NET)
Men who do not fear God will see His Judgment, while those of His people, whom these dare to judge; although we will not see God’s Judgment, we will certainly see theirs.
Isaiah 26:20 Go, my people! Enter your inner rooms! Close your doors behind you! Hide for a little while, until his angry judgment is over! (NET)
Romans 2:5 But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath for yourselves in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed! (NET)
The reset of the moral compass does not allow, and in fact cannot allow understanding of this overwhelm weight of truth in the Bible, but because of the moral shift the Bible is relegated to the past. It has become obsolete. The time of Judgment cannot be far off. The signs of its coming are in the making. God has given them to you.
1 Corinthians 1:25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. (NET)
