Exodus: Book of Deliverance

Exodus teaches us that against all odds, God’s purposes are accomplished, whether anyone likes it or not. It may take time to unroll but it will be seen and God will be victorious. Exodus also teaches us that we can participate in God’s victories through faith; our ability to take God at His Word and simply follow Him. Yet, no one can do this perfectly. The best we can do is submit ourselves to Him on a daily basis and when we do fall, get up quickly, admit/confess our sin and once again, move on with Him.

Hearing But Not Obeying

What God is speaking about here in Ezekiel though are those people who have actually no intention of allowing the worship, the preaching or anything else actually change them. They go into a worship service with that attitude. For them, it’s simply another social event and they are not interested in being changed by the truth they hear, whether in song or spoken word. These people go to church and simply put on the face they believe they should have on. They are friendly to a fault, seemingly overjoyed to be in “church,” and spend a good amount of time chatting with people, laughing with them as though they haven’t seen them in months, and they pay careful (outward) attention to sermon. They have no intention of being changed by it because they listen only with their ears, not with their will and heart. They desire no change therefore they see no change.

Rolling Toward Reparations for Slavery

There is one huge difference between the persecution that God allowed in the past and the coming Tribulation/Great Tribulation of the future. The coming Tribulation is all about God pouring out His wrath on humanity for their continued rejection of Him and their constant rebellion and proliferation of evil. Just as it was in the days of Noah and just as it was in the days of Lot, God poured out His wrath then on a rebellious and disobedient society that refused to bow the knee to Almighty God. Those events foreshadowed the final pouring out of God’s wrath throughout the globe in what I believe is the near future and is called the Tribulation/Great Tribulation.

What Should Authentic Christians Look Forward to in the Future?

This is all-too important to ignore or treat with disdain. We Christians have tremendous reasons to “look up” and understand that our citizenship is not here on earth, but in heaven. John tells us that as we focus our hearts and minds on the eventual return of our Lord and the culmination of all things by Him and His eternal power, many cares and concerns in this life will fall away.

Push-back Against Socialism

What we’re seeing in America is the result of the Elite forcing their plan onto society. They want things in upheaval as they move America toward Socialism. The more upheaval, the better, because it makes it difficult for people to concentrate on any one thing in society. This upheaval allows the Elite to bring their goals and ambitions to fruition because there is so much going on in society that acts as either a catalyst for their goals or distracts people from noticing them. It’s a form of Hegelian Dialectic at work and certainly, part of the reason all this is happening is so that people will eventually demand the government keep society safe. The government will be willing to do this by seriously curtailing and then outlawing personal gun ownership.

Sameness is the New Word for Socialism

This is why the arguments are being made that we must have “compassion” on those who have peanut allergies or who identify as female, though biologically male (or visa versa). There is also a push that parents of young children should no longer read to them, but should wait until their children get to school. The argument is that since many parents cannot (or simply don’t) read to their young children, the parents who do read to theirs are creating a situation in which their children are ahead of the game. This creates an unfair situation for those children whose parents, for one reason or another, do not read to their kids. This is an “unfair advantage” against those children. Society is being told that we must now reduce ourselves to the lowest common denominator. What’s next, the eradication of all competitive sports? That’s actually been in the works for a while.

Amusing Ourselves to Death

The other problem with society’s penchant for and reliance on bite-sized information in the form of easy t0 remember slogans and memes is that we become addicted to that form of “entertainment” and make the mistake of thinking that we are “learning” because of it. If we’re learning, we are becoming better people, right? Wrong. If we are learning things that are provably untrue, this does not make us better in any way, shape, or form. Unlike smoke signals at one time used by American Indians to share the most basic information from tribe to tribe, modern day slogans are used the same way, except intended to share complex truths. This is ridiculous, yet it has become the standard practice throughout society. This is also why, I believe, political correctness has become the way the average person determines truth these days. It’s all about how you feel about something.
