“But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23 KJV).
Doubtless, we never want to sensationalize or exaggerate. However, the fact remains, some dark days are ahead for the United States and the rest of the world. What can we Bible-believing Christians do?
Re-read Moses’ advice: “But if ye will not do so [obey the LORD’S words], behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.” Stated another way, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7). We as a nation have thrown away the Scriptures, and taught our younger generations to do likewise. Our sin has found us out. The expression “what goes around, comes around” is true: the consequences of one’s evil actions catch up in a negative way, and, behold, our bitter harvest is finally here!
All evils in society start in the home—and never forget it! “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 6:6-8). “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). Notice, the duty of spiritual instruction is given to the father, not the mother.
Since most fathers have overwhelmingly failed in their spiritual responsibility, youth have grown up and are growing up in households that are breeding grounds for instability, immaturity, and misinformation. These children grow to adulthood physically, but are emotionally and spiritually undeveloped. Alas, it is even worse than that. They repeat the pattern, passing on their ignorance and weakness to their own children. Multiply that one such spiritually-darkened household by more than 100 million, remembering that process spans several decades, and the result is staggering. We have arrived at our present-day fatal culture….
