God’s word warns us what the consequences are for abandoning his truth and allowing evil to gain more solid footing in this world. Right now, this nation is on dangerous footing and so is the world.
From the book of Genesis, to Ecclesiastes to Matthew, we see hints, plain words of truth and warnings.
5 The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil.6 So the LORD was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart.7 And the LORD said, “I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing—all the people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.” (Genesis 6:5-7)
8 Everything is wearisome beyond description. No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content.
9 History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new.10 Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new.11 We don’t remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now. (Ecclesiastes 1:8-11)
37 “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.38 In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.39 People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes. (Matt. 24:37-39)
Is God in a position to be sorry he allowed humans to repopulate this world? Jesus did not die in vain. He came to redeem sinful humanity. We must take a stand for his righteousness and help those lost in the darkness of this culture to find hope and salvation in him.
