INDICATION OF CULTURAL DECLINE
…sexual immorality. –Revelation 2:14; 2:20; 2:21; 9:21; 14:8; 17:2; 18:3; 18:9;
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah —Psalm 46:1-3
Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah —Psalm 46:10-11
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another… Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. —Romans 1:24, 26-26
Sexual immorality is often used in God’s Word of utter corruption. Sexual immorality is an obvious indicator of a corrupt culture and corrupt world. Be sure that sexual immorality will continue to increase as this world continues it’s downward slide into darkness. These sinful, impure passions will lead to other atrocities as well. Sexual immorality is the most obvious sign that a people, a nation or the world has darkened, depraved minds. In that state of mind any type of wicked, evil atrocities are possible.
But fellow follower of Jesus, do not lose heart. Be still and ponder, remember that God is still God and He “will be exalted among the nations.” He “will be exalted in the earth!” This will happen. You can fully depend on that! The time is coming. Do not lose heart. Do not lose focus. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah” God will have the final say! We are on the Victors’ side. All will be made right in the future! Keep focused and rejoice in our Lord God Almighty!
Dear Father I am so grateful to know that when the world gives way to it’s wickedness I am safe in You. You are my refuge and strength and may I live this out in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2emelR7lGmw
