What Next?

The last two years have seen much change in the America we once loved.  The duly elected President is not in office.  An unelected substitute presides in his place.  Evil men rule everywhere and rapidly grow more and more powerful.

The poisonous public school system has grown worse than ever.  It’s university-corrupted teachers now demand total control of the students during school hours.  They resent and object to parents’ requests for information.  They believe the children belong to them during school hours.

The list of issues could go on and on but what is the root issue?  What is the underlying cause of it all?  Is there a single cause or has the nation just lost it’s mind?  No, the problem is that the nation has turned its back on God.  A century or two ago Americans that believed, worshipped and obeyed God were a powerful force that led this country.  Today many Christians are waiting for God to take them out of the world in an instant of time.  They have believed a very subtle and attractive lie and given up their role as the nation’s spiritual leaders.

The lie is that God changed His mind, an utter impossibility!  God knows the end from the beginning and never needs to change any of His decisions.  God’s people should know this and should have rejected the very idea instantly.  The fact that they didn’t do so is an indication of how extremely weak thev have become.

Their weakness dates back five centuries to the Reformation and the 30 years of war between the Protestants and the Catholics.  Both sides decided that they had fought long enough and left the Western World half Catholic and half Protestant.  It was a sorry compromise. It discouraged and weakened both sides and left the West divided.

The lack of unity wasn’t just: you go your way and I’ll go mine.  It left both sides far weaker than they were before.  The Catholics compromised and stopped burning objectors at the stake.  Their inability to unify at home discouraged the Protestants from ever realizing a unified Christian world.  The goal of the Great Commission was weakened, reduced from making a Christian world to making converts.

The initial fervor of the Reformation is long gone and today’s world is divided between Satan’s followers and God’s people, many of whom are waiting for a Rapture event that isn’t coming.  They’ve been waiting over a half century now and some must have lost this foolish faith.  Many, though, still believe these are the last days and still foolishly wait for a rapture event.

God’s people must stop looking for Jesus’ return and get back to obeying God here and now.  There is a world full of unbelievers that need to hear the Gospel message.  Jesus will not return until we have completed the task He assigned us:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matthew 28:18-20
