    And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold

    Matthew 24:12

    Today we are in the midst of heart wrenching national unrest. Our cities are overrun with lawlessness, violence, anarchy, bitterness, wrath, and appear to be headed toward complete collapse. Instead of leadership, there is confusion, indecision, moral cowardice, and capitulation to the mob mentality. In the words of our text: lawlessness abounds and the love of many has grown cold. There is no shortage of “experts” in politics, media, and academia given to endless bloviating as to the cause and cure of all this unrest. We hear the same old tired words and phrases: “We need reform” – “We need dialogue” – “It’s time to have a conversation” – “We need to come together”, and on and on it goes. Lawlessness and lovelessness coexist; they feed upon one another. The more lawlessness we have the colder love will become, and a lack of love will always produce more lawlessness; violence will beget more violence.

    It’s not that there isn’t a solution to this problem, but man denies the problem and rejects the solution. Man is ever dealing with the symptoms, which are listed above, while refusing to acknowledge the true problem. The problem, as it has always been, is sin – man’s rebellion against his Creator and the suppression of the Truth (Rom 1:18, 21). The Bible says that the heart of man is deceitful and desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9). Man needs a new heart, an altogether…

    For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven…

    Romans 1:18

    No one wants to read a Bible devotional about the wrath of God. We would prefer something more positive, heartwarming, and encouraging. But to put forth such a message, in a time such as ours, would be akin to saying “peace, peace” when there is no peace. Romans chapter one, verses eighteen through the end of the chapter, is a frighteningly apt description of both our culture and much of the political atmosphere that governs it. The reason for God’s wrath is the ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth (v18), and because they exchange the truth of God for the lie (v25), and they do not retain a knowledge of God (v28). In other words, here is a culture that has clear truth regarding God, but instead of living by it, they reject it. Instead of bowing to God, they bow to man-centered ideologies based on lies. Our nation has had the truth of God’s word to help govern it since it was founded. Unfortunately, our nation has proven to prefer the darkness rather than the light; therefore, we see the wrath of God revealed all around us.

    The wrath of God isn’t revealed in earthquakes, floods, or supernatural disasters as it will be at the end of the age. The wrath of God is simply revealed by God taking His restraining hand off and letting man loose to reveal the evil of his own heart. It is basically God giving the culture what it desires: the rule of man instead of the rule of God…

    How is it that former President Obama tweeted the death of George Floyd and showed a portrait of him 9 days before he died? Is this a Mystery of Lawlessness?

    Marxist ideology began with Karl Marx rewriting History Books to help him sell his propaganda. Sadly much of American History has been changed. My High School American history book is not even close to what they are saying today. Just 1 example. Did you know that during the Civil War President Lincoln sent a letter to The Czar of Russia Nicholas ‘ll to send his navy fleet to America’s coasts to protect our weakened country from being invaded by both England and France? Nicholas sent his fleet to the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Many things are missing. Sadly we have been lord to for many years. PRAY Christians PRAY!

    Ezek. 18:20 the son is not accountable for the sins of the father.
    You serve whoever you kneel down to.
    We cannot serve two masters.
    the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
    Those who are with us gather those who are against us scatter.
    Jesus left no third option no middle ground.
    Either you are serving Jesus or you are serving the evil one.

    Thank you Lighthouse for all that you do to share the Truth of Jesus Christ, His Word, and for your discernment.

    We are all descendants of Noah and Adam, and our skin color is only skin deep. The amount of pigment in our skin doesn’t make a man or women. The state of our souls, our faith, and our love for our LORD Jesus Christ matters the most in the end.

    This is meant to distract us. What happened to the Covid 19 coverage? It is non existent. It looks to me like a coup attempt.

    So true. All people over the globe bleed red. We are all descended from Adam and Eve. We all belong to the human race.
