I’ve been noticing the later it gets, the more evil is going on. It is depressing how often incidents and crimes happen, but in the big city, what else can you expect? God didn’t create us to live all squashed together in megacities like New York or LA. No, He intended for us to live spaced out, in rural areas and farms and wide open spaces. This is because He wants us to work for a living and not parasite off of government handouts like so many unfortunately do.
Now before you attack me and defend your logic that you need this assistance, hold on a second. I too receive benefits from the government, specifically the Department of Veterans Affairs, because I am the surviving spouse of a veteran and it is an award that I receive monthly for that reason only. I am talking about people who milk the government for funds and assistance because they’re too lazy to get up off their rear ends and find a job. They’re the ones who have children out of wedlock and get food stamps because they can’t keep their pants up. Yeah I’m telling it like it is. If you are able-bodied and refuse to work, the Bible says you shouldn’t eat. I didn’t write it, I just preach it.
Anyway back to my point. I have the Citizen app on my phone. I see crimes and awful stuff going on right near me. They seem to be increasing as each day goes by. I am left to wonder, will I be next? I stopped going for my walks and rides, one reason being it’s winter and it’s too cold, but also because of the growing awareness that crime is not just limited to ghettos; in fact, it’s as though my own neighborhood has become one! Rather, it HAS been one and I’m just now noticing it!! This is the direct result of disobedience to God’s command that we live SEPARATE from each other.
So I looked at this app this morning and saw that there was a fight going on between two women in a hospital emergency room. The first thing that crossed my mind was, where are the guards that are present in every hospital, even in the ER?? Were they on coffee break or something? There is a chat for comments in this app and somebody jokingly said, “Well, at least they’re in the right place,” and laughed about it. I thought, is this what this world is coming to, people laughing at others’ calamities? Then I thought, this has been happening for as long as humans have been on the earth. Still, it seemed a cruel and crass way to treat such a situation.
Last night I witnessed a shooting right where the corner store we go to is located. Well, actually, the shooting incident occurred a few minutes before. So I went out there and filmed a small portion of the crime scene to the app. Thankfully the police had it under control, but they were still looking for a suspect in the area.
This world is getting older, more corrupt and more blatant in its sin against Almighty God. I’m convinced, it’s a matter of one second at a time before we are raptured out of here. Then again, things might get more vile and much worse than this before the Lord comes for us. I have no idea when it will happen, but I know that the rapture is one thing to actually look forward to in this hot mess we’re in. Meanwhile I intend to sound out the Gospel to as many as I can, while I can.
I hope you’re saved today. If you are, you have hope, peace and blessings. You have God’s mighty hand upon you and you will never be cast aside or left alone. You are washed in the blood of the Lamb, and have the blood over you in His protection all day long. And when all is said and done, you will avoid Hell. If not, unless you get saved, you will be left behind and will have to endure greater atrocities and calamities than all of history records. These times now are a picnic compared to what is going to happen in the near future. You better get saved, NOW, because you just don’t know how much time you have left on this old earth.
