Hide God’s Law and He Hides Himself From Us

THOU SHALL NOT

The photo below appeared in an October 7 throw away daily paper given out at subways stops in the metropolitan area of our nation’s capital. The caption below the picture includes: “THOU SHALL NOT: Workers remove a Ten Commandments monument from its base on the grounds of the state Capitol in Oklahoma City Monday night.  Oklahoma’s Supreme Court ruled in June the display violates a state constitutional prohibition on the use of public property. … ”  The monument was removed to a storage facility.

What are the implications?

Removal of the Bible’s Ten Commandments may seem to be part of the changes going on in our nation and around  the world today. “So what?” you may ask. The real response to this is: “Is the new normal really normal or an abstraction of what is the ultimate reality to our life?”

Here we approach the divide between blessing from the Devine and the pit of despair that so often beset Israel as her kings would turn their backs on the God of Israel.  And for the nations today, the rest of us, we were the intended audience to watch what Israel did or does when blessed to see how the rest of us may inherit what Israel was always intended for … God’s will and THE blessing.

Across the US and across the global landscape of this planet, humans are turning a blind eye to the God over all, Jew and Gentile, and the consequences will come. They did before. They will come yet again. But you are being lulled into a false sense of it won’t happen because “see nothing happened today,” so why worry?

Maybe Oklahoma City will grow a wee bit darker and as we see more lawless behaviors, shootings, sodomy, abuse, immorality, expanding of drug use and other permissive alterations to the otherwise order we call peace … the fabric of our societies frays.

It did before and even as you think “not now” it’s happening slowly … we are all on an ever slippery slope.

Strange as it is, the world is not improving and changes are more degradation than constructive … more conflicts, more tension … you have to wonder why humanity ust never seems to learn!

And that is why the Bible speaks to an end of this era.  Read the text, study what is projected and note the uncanny similarity to the fraying of our time and what the biblical text states for tomorrow. As Yogi Berra said: “the future ain’t what is use to be.”

But God knows what the future brings and you can read it today.

Take down His law and you end up in an age of the lawless … in Oklahoma City and around the globe … you can bet on it! Ask the ancient kings who did the same … read about their fate and demise … look around you now.

Sign of the Christian Church Apostasy

At first blush one might mistake this post as a criticism of Islam. Hardly. The Book of Revelation starts with a series of letters to the churches. Each letter characterizes a type of church. Further the series of letters are taken to characterize the church ages over periods of time from the First Century to the last and present church age. The last church age is labeled the Apostate Church Age.

To practicing Christians nothing can be more a sign of the apostate condition than any kind of allowance or practice the goes against biblical teaching. Same sex marriage goes against Scripture (e.g. Leviticus 20:13) and hosting worship by persons who do not regard Yeshua (i.e. Jesus) as Messiah and thus Devine being, is clearly counter to Bible principles. Yet, the National Cathedral in Washington allows both. Our point is simple, this is merely a sign that we are indeed in an apostate era.

The following image from the Watch.org web page on November 15 shows both the Muslim worshippers, but the accompanying text makes points reflected here. As for the Muslim faithful, it might be worth note they have prostrate the,selves in the House of the Lord a place built (we trust) by the US to honor the God of Israel and the Messiah who died and was resurrected that we may live eternally with the God of Israel. To think otherwise is apostasy in its own right. We hope they might investigate the significance of this point.

Perhaps the sad conclusion is that many people rationalize such things are permissible in the eyes of God. If it were so the Bible would not include the ‘teachings,’ also known as Torah. Many believe the Torah is obsolete, but for those who search Scripture there is no such justification. We live in an age of human compromises and rationalizations in the name of political correctness. A holy and righteous God has left us instruction that says otherwise. Discerning what His will is becomes the cutting edge of what applies and how we are to approach the days beyond this age.
