The world is going farther and farther away from God. Wars and vice have increased. There is no doubt of this.
Places where we considered relatively peaceful and safe, have now become the location of heinous crimes.
All manner of evil is being proclaimed in music, in television, in dress…in everything this world has to offer.
What our world is saying to God is, “DEPART FROM US.”
God is not a God of force. He does everything by His Spirit of love. When our world continues to tell God, like those people of old, to depart from us, He will.
But when God departs it means that the Source of order, love and life will also have departed. Then what will be the result?
As this world pushes God further and further away, we are seeing more signs of destruction and violence. These signs, though ominous, are telling us who have hope in God, that even though this world will come to an end, God’s kingdom is eternal.
If we choose God, we choose life and when He comes again we will be taken to heaven to be with Him for evermore.
