I want to be aware of the things that are happening in the world and I do not want to be blind when it comes to interpreting the signs. I want to keep awake, with sober judgment.
It is my belief that it's possibly later than we think. It looks like we may be moving toward a one-world government. America is accepting more and more this Oprah type theology. They are accepting homosexuality as morality and they murder infants in the name of convenience. They hate to hear the name of Jesus. They stop their ears and run from God, believing he is out to condemn them. They understand their guilt, but try to stop their screaming consciences by denying the existence of God and sin. If only they would admit their guilt and seek a way out, they would find his grace to be all sufficient. They would understand the Gospel and turn, and Jesus would heal them.
But we, believers in Christ, children of the day, need just to straighten up, lift up our heads and rejoice in our hope in Christ! He has done it all! There is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. Hold fast your confidence in Jesus' finished work firm to the end, not shifting from the hope of the Gospel!
