For the look on their faces bears witness against them; they proclaim their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil on themselves. —Isaiah 3:9
Whether it was 2700 years ago or today, things do not change in this fallen world. Isn’t it interesting that the “look on their faces bears witness against them.” The wicked’s ways are reflected on their faces! We live in such a day where people “proclaim their sin like Sodom.” There was a day in our nation when shameful things were done behind closed doors and in the shadows of the night, but now “they do not hide it.” They care not that their evil deeds are done in broad daylight.
- The slaughter of innocent life in the womb
- Sex trafficking
- Child abuse of forcing sexual identities upon children
- Governmental greed and lust for power
- The increase of violent crime
- The speeding down the slippery slope of immorality
- The lack of love toward others
- The increase of hatefulness among those who disagree
The list goes on. On one had this is nothing new, but on the other hand it is the increase of these things that are very concerning. The end result of all this is that the nation will bring evil upon itself. Things will not end well. God will not be mocked and He is judging this nation by letting it go its own sinful way. Why are we experiencing massive evil problems today? It is because man seeks to be his own god, his own destiny builder and not want anything to do with God. God says “Have it your way” and lets them go (Romans 1:18-32). When God lets a people go there is only one direction they head— downward into immoral darkness. Read the Roman passage. This is clearly stated! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Jl_bNog5zs
Dear Father even when things are darkened wickedness around me, please help me to live for You and not get distracted by it. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it!
