If you honestly look at the facts, most of our Western, formerly professing “Christian nations” are swiftly turning away from almost every vestige of biblical morality.
No! I am not kidding! The very few who still believe the Bible need to face that absolute fact. For God is not mocked. And when you Tomorrow’s World subscribers read about or see on your television news of the continuing breakup of the traditional family unit, when you see increasing millions of young people “living together” without benefit of marriage, when you see increasing millions of children growing up without two parents—or perhaps with no parents—when you see our financial crisis growing even worse, when you see unusual upset weather conditions, powerful earthquakes and soon-to-come horrible disease epidemics, please realize that our Creator specifically warned us of these many disasters. Again, God is not mocked!
Writing about the supposedly educated and smart people of his time, the Apostle Paul stated: “Professing to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:22).
Then Almighty God inspired Paul to continue: “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting” (vv. 26–28). No, rebellious carnal mankind does not like to retain God in its knowledge. For the true God—the God of the Bible—shines His “light” of Truth and righteousness on those willing to listen. But, as Jesus said, “…men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19).
Also, God inspired the Apostle Paul to describe the normal, fleshly “carnal mind” of most humans: “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be” (Romans 8:6–7). Notice the “key” issue! The mind of most people is at “enmity” against God. Why? “For it is not subject to the law of God.”
Rebellious human beings do not like a God who commands them what to do! So they—perhaps unwittingly—are influenced by Satan the Devil to be at “enmity” against their very Creator and His righteous law—described in His word as the “law of liberty” (James 2:12).
Speaking to our forefathers, Almighty God warned those who disobey Him, “I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it” (Leviticus 26:15–16).
As we have pointed out many times, the Hebrew word translated “terror” can certainly include the meaning of “terrorism”—the very first warning sign God gave our western nations on September 11, 2001! Later in this same scriptural passage, God stated: “And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. I will break the pride of your power; I will make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze. And your strength shall be spent in vain” (vv. 18–20).
As all of you watch the decline of the American and British-descended people, please wake up! Realize that as the prophesied “terrorism” increases, as “wasting diseases” such as AIDS and cancer increasingly destroy our people, and as our national power and prestige continue to plummet downward, the great God—the God of the Bible—remains alive! And if we “obliterate” the Bible from our own understandings—if we do not come to heartfelt individual and national repentance—then the God of the Bible will obliterate our God-rejecting, rebellious and terribly immoral societies!
For God warned our peoples of the terrible consequences of rebellion against their Creator and His instructions. Among them: “The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail” (Deuteronomy 28:43–44).
Please wake up! This is real. It is now beginning to affect your very lives and the lives of your friends, your children and your grandchildren.
For as carnal mankind tries to “obliterate” the Bible and to stamp out the deep respect mankind ought to feel for God and His inspired word, the very real God will “chastise” our entire rebellious society. He will soon replace the God-forsaking and God-forsaken society with the Kingdom of God! As the inspired Apostle Peter stated, the great God will soon “…send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began” (Acts 3:20–21). An entire new society will be established at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as King of kings to rule over the nations here on this earth (Revelation 5:10).
The Ten Commandments will become the very foundational principles for perfect government under Jesus Christ. Men will learn to deeply respect and honor their parents—that is the fifth commandment. They will not commit adultery or break up the normal family in any way by perversion or other means. Families will be strong and teach their children to love the ways of God and learn how to love God and how to love other human beings made in the image of God. Mankind will then truly understand that Jesus Christ really meant it when He stated: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4).
Rebellious human beings may try to obliterate God’s word, but they will ultimately fail! Instead, Almighty God will obliterate all human societies and nations that defy Him, that “despise” His commandments and that are, even now, bringing upon millions of human beings a degree of despair, suffering and seeming hopelessness almost beyond belief.
Describing the soon-coming and very real Kingdom or Government of God under Jesus Christ, your Bible states: “He will bring justice to the poor of the people; He will save the children of the needy, and will break in pieces the oppressor… Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him; all nations shall serve Him. For He will deliver the needy when he cries, the poor also, and him who has no helper. He will spare the poor and needy, and will save the souls of the needy. He will redeem their life from oppression and violence; and precious shall be their blood in His sight” (Psalm 72:4–14).
