Lawlessness. The Curse, and The Cure.

posted in: From the Pastors Desk | 0

Sounds like a movie title doesn’t it? Yet anyone living on this planet the past few years could unequivocablly say they have been cast members in a horrid reality show. Problem is, we weren’t given the script to act our parts.  Just comply.  Do not be deceived, these worldly events have been plotted, and planned.  The Pilot debuted in 2019. But here we are in 2022.  The only constant assurance we have is JESUS and the BOOK of the LAW; the Bible.   There should be little to no doubt anyone who does not obey the law is rebellious;  A Truce Breaker.

LAWLESSNESS.  There are eyewtiness accounts of this travesty rampaging our streets from finding a man not guilty of killing two protestors in Kenosha, Wisconsin, smash and gab thieves in broad daylight, and the law fearing the people below in Portland.

The myriad of events are culminating for the people without hope to cry out for someone, who created the chaos, to bring them peace. Sounds dumb doesn’t it?  That is exactly what happened in the OT Bible.

1 Samuel 8:6, 10, 19  But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. … 10 And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king. … 19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

The people got Saul.  You can read the rest for yourself.

Today, the AntiChrist is waiting in the wings to seize power.  Because the people would rather believe in a man, and his words, rather than in the GOD of all creation.

  • Matthew 23:28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
  • Matthew 24:12  “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
  • 1 John 3:4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.

 HOPE THOU IN THIS

Matthew 13:41-42 “The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, “and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

THE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND!

  • Isaiah 13:6 Wail, for the day of the LORD [is] at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty.
  • Joel 1:15  Alas for the day! For the day of the LORD [is] at hand; It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.
  • Zephaniah 1:7 Be silent in the presence of the Lord GOD; For the day of the LORD [is] at hand, For the LORD has prepared a sacrifice; He has invited His guests.

Meanwhile, for those suffering from the allowed planned plot. Know that  Zechariah 5:3-4 Then he said to me, “This [is] the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: ‘Every thief shall be expelled,’ according [to] this side of [the scroll]; and, ‘Every perjurer shall be expelled,’ according [to] that side of it.” “I will send out [the curse],” says the LORD of hosts; “It shall enter the house of the thief And the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It shall remain in the midst of his house And consume it, with its timber and stones.”

The Cause of the Curse. DISOBEDIENCE. BREAKING THE LAW

  • Deuteronomy 11:26  “Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse:
  • Proverbs 26:2 Like a flitting sparrow, like a flying swallow, So a curse without cause shall not alight
  • Jeremiah 23:10 For the land is full of adulterers; For because of a curse the land mourns. The pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up. Their course of life is evil, And their might [is] not right.
  • Jeremiah 44:22  “So the LORD could no longer bear [it], because of the evil of your doings [and] because of the abominations which you committed. Therefore your land is a desolation, an astonishment, a curse, and without an inhabitant, as [it is] this day.
  • Malachi 3:9 You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed Me, [Even] this whole nation.

The Cure.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

CAVEAT. YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO PRAY, AND HOW.
