WHY THE MESS WE HAVE IN OUR COUNTRY? Job 8: 8-13 2-28-09
Today I want to bring us a few thoughts on what I believe are some of the reasons that we have such a financial crisis in our Country, and not only here in this Country, but around the world.
I don’t see how any logical thinking person can deny that something is drastically wrong, the only way any one could possible not realize it, is that they would have to live away back in the jungles some where or another and never have had a monetary system, and be acquainted with the better things of life.
We see these people on some of these documentaries on T.V. from time to time, their running around naked with a bone in their nose and live in huts, some are even still cannibals.
These people don’t realize there is a civilized world out there because that’s the only way of life they’ve ever known, they have never had a need for money, they allow their daughters to be married for the price of a couple of pigs and things of this nature. And so these people don’t have a clue about what goes on out side their world.
Listen as I read to day’s text found in
Job 8: 8-13 For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
9(For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)
10 Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?
11 Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?
12 Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.
13 So are the paths of all that forget God; **
I’m afraid that this is the # 1 cause of problems that we face here in our nation.
We can ask people what they think about God and you’ll hear many different comments and answers.
In other places around the world the people there proclaim other so called gods, and their daily way of life is fear, torture, beheading others that don’t believe the way they do, and so they think killing all others is what they ought to do.
The Islamics have practically taken England over because the citizens of that country have stood idly by and allowed it, and now they have a generation of English people, that have been brought up in such an atmosphere that they think this is the way it ought to be, and it’s swiftly becoming that way here in our nation, a big number of the generation of my time was never taken to Church, and so now their children are coming on the scene and are not taken to Church either and see nothing wrong in it.
Now days there’s all kind of perversions of the Bible and many of these same people see nothing wrong with changing Gods Word. But you can rest assured that God sees it for the wretched sin that it is.
Jesus said in:
Mark 13: 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
And let me say that at one time every man on earth knew about the One True God, it was handed down from Adams family, there would have been no way that Adam could have rejected Jehovah God for some man made god simple because there were no other people to lead Adam astray, but today there are all kinds of gods that man has conjured up in his mind, these people fix a god in their mind to suit their way of doing things.
