Fifty years ago, to a God-fearing people, it was unthinkable. Fifty years ago, to a God-fearing people, it was unimaginable. Fifty years ago, a God-fearing nation full of God-fearing people never could have conceived, in their worst or wildest nightmares, that they would ever, in their entire lifetimes, have to face the reality of such a ghastly, horrific, ungodly, and satanic occurrence. It no more occurred to a God-fearing people then, than it occurred to God Himself what an awful and horrible abomination His Old Testament people would commit in the fiery massacre and sacrifice of their own God given offspring (Jeremiah 32:35; Psalm 127:3-5).
And yet, today, a somewhat similar satanic abomination has become an almost constant and commonplace occurrence. And so much so, that now schools scheme for it; colleges collaborate over it; and police forces and S.W.A.T. teams must routinely plan, practice, and prepare for it. After all, how often since Columbine have we switched on the news and seen it? Yet another cowardly and deranged, suicidal teen or twenty-something, with absolutely no regard, respect, or reverence for almighty God or God-given human life, goes to a school somewhere and starts mowing down defenseless students… But in the name of all-consuming common-sense, legitimate life-learned logic, and especially divinely-inspired and God-given Scripture, WHAT ELSE SHOULD ANYONE, WITH ANY WHISPER OF WISDOM WHATSOEVER, REALLY AND TRULY EXPECT TO HAPPEN?
Scripture says: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life” (Galatians 6:7-8). Over the course of the last fifty years, masses of confused and misled Americans have constantly and continually sought to run God and any semblance of respect or reverence for the sanctity of godly standards, godly morals, godly discipline, or God-given human life out of our society, starting in our schools and court systems. When you deny the fact that God created us in His image; deny school students the right to pray openly and publically; legalize the outright murder of millions and millions of unborn baby human beings; illegalize any attempt whatsoever to introduce or reinforce godly morals, standards, or discipline at a young age; and then, instead, replace such good, pure, holy, righteous and lovely, life-giving and respecting restraints and lifestyles with such deviant, satanic, and suicidal moral, physical, and sexual license – WHAT ELSE COULD YOU POSSIBLY, REALISTICALLY EXPECT, AS THE ONLY POSSIBLE OUTCOME?
Just like the arrogant, ignorant, self-deluded and power-hungry rulers of old (Acts 2:22-24; 1 Corinthians 2:6-8), those today who thus seek to minimize, marginalize, neutralize, and/or outright deny the very existence of almighty God and what His eternal, inerrant, and all-authoritative word perpetually prophecies and promises, actually and in all reality, wind up completely fulfilling, validating, and verifying it – and to the very letter at that! Not only do we see this powerfully, perfectly, and perpetually proven in places like Galatians 6:7-8 as noted above, relative to recent church, school, concert, and military installation shootings on American soil, we also see it when we turn to places like James as well: “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace” (James 3:13-18).
The root of the problem today, and what needs to be desperately and immediately corrected – ungodly liberal bias and ignorance notwithstanding of course – is not that we have too many guns in our hands and homes, but that we have too little of God in our hearts and minds! The root of the problem is, that those who seek to deny the very existence of their all powerful and eternal Creator simply because they do not want to humble themselves before, and submit to and obey Him, have been so militantly and aggressively advancing a decades-long agenda, that they have now succeeded in producing several generations of progressively worsening decadence, in whom “there is no fear of God before their eyes,” which is where the foundational seeds of all such evil and violence subsequently take root, ripen, and eventually produce such deadly and devastating fruit (once again, just as the God they seek to deny, they once again validate, by so very clearly and concisely fulfilling exactly what He said would happen nearly two millennia ago – See: Romans 3:10-18).
In fact, we have regressed so far back into the abyss by now, that we have produced a whole generation, a number of which are apparently not even intelligent enough to realize or to be able to tell if they were born a boy or a girl, and believe consuming deadly poison laundry detergent is somehow a sign of intelligence and/or maturity. Where oh where will this ugly and ungodly progression of God-denying darkness take us next? God help us all to turn back to Him before it’s too late… if it’s not already.
