Is this world reaping what it has sown? I was just pondering some of the blatantly anti-Christian legislation passed in Victoria and other states recently, and measuring it against the scripture that says, “Blessed is that nation whose God is the Lord”, and glimpse how far removed from that we are.
The world turns its back on God, then curses and blames Him when things go wrong. It just doesn’t work that way. God isn’t a bellhop to be summoned by a snap of the fingers when we need something to improve our comfort. He’s given us a blueprint for right living, and we ignore it at our peril.
Denying His existence is all very well – that’s just something you’ll have to explain to Him when you eventually meet 😔
In the meantime, the fate of the nations is actually in the hands of the church within those nations: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their terrible ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Is that maybe why governments around the world are doing their utmost to destroy the church – because they don’t really want the nations healed? Could be – it’s much easier to rule with an iron fist when people are completely defeated.
